Question about Samsung CLX 3160fn All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

I have tried to get a Waste Toner Tank in my country, Botswana in Southern Africa, I cant find it anywhere else here. Its been one year now, with no luck. I have tried to buy it on-line and I cant, because on-line is for US customers only. Will my printer work if I can empty the tank, wash it, leave it to dry and put it back into the printer?

I think you could empty and try to clean it.

The supply item CLPW300A only costs $19, but I imagine shipping to Botswana would cost much more than that.

Samsung clx-2160 says waste tank is full. What must I do and where is the waste tank?


If you open the front of the printer then you will find a waste tank in the left side - its gray. Take it out and empty it, and put the tank back in place.
This works for Samsung CLX-2160

I have a ? near full waste tank and others said to try and unistall and reinstall the printer. I have never done this so I need step by step directions...currently cannot print


the waste toner tank is a consumable part that fills with unused toner and needs to be replaced occasionally. Check your manuals for the location of the waste toner tank

My printer keeps putting these annoying black lines on my docs. I have an important paper to print and I cant have black lines on it! UGH! I tried dusting and cleaning the drum and restarting the computer...


As you talk of a drum, I take it you have a laser printer. You say you have checked the drum. Without knowing the model, sometimes the waste holder gets full and will cause this. Some carts have the waste holder just below the toner holder in the cart, and others have a separate waste tank.
Always run the printer on the leanest setting that will print well. Stay away from the rich settings as they waste toner and fill the waste tank needlessly, leading to a needed cleaning.
The lines can be waste toner getting printed rather than going into the waste tank.

Waste Toner Error Message For Samsung CLP 550


Dr. P,
Printer will display "Waste Toner Tank Full/Not Installed" error message if the waste tank is full of toner or not installed.
  • Open the waste tank door and check for the waste toner tank.
  • If the tank is full or not intalled, install a new tank.

If you have user guide, it will show you how to install the waste toner tank.

Sometimes you will also get this error message if the Waste Toner sensor is covered with toner powders.
  1. Remove your waste tank and look for the black plastic on the right side after removing the waste tank.
  2. You sould find small openings on each side in the black casing.
  3. Use Q-tips or thin cotton object to clean the inside the small opening.
for user manual just click here:

If this solution works, please don't forget to rate it fixya

For any more question just ask me.

Thanks
Iqbal

Printer not printing


On the machine there is a sensor that looks trough the waste tank even though you have wiped it clean the likely thing is that the sensor cannot see through the plastic waste tank.

I suggest vacuum the waste tank out until all the toner has gone then install it. If you cannot get rid of all the toner then wash the tank out and leave to dry then install it.

Hope this helps you
Thanks J

Waste motor error


The wate motor transfers (you guess it) waste toner to the waste toner bottle. If the bottle fills up, the motor cannot transfer more waste to it. This is rare, for the printer should ask for a new waste toner bottle when the previous one fills. However,it happens frequently when users try to empty and clean the bottle instead of replacing it.

If a new waste toner bottle is in place, then the printer needs a new motor, which can only be purchased through an Authorized Service Center.
