How to clear internal paper jam on CLX-3160FN Samsung Multifunction Printer

Paper was jammed in machine printout area. While attempting to remove the jam, paper tore and left small piece of paper in printer that is stuck and keeps tearing when trying to pull it out, to the point it has become embedded in the printout area and is so small it can no longer be reached. The jammed paper is not visible from the rear fuser area. This has resulted in a fatal printer jam error while printing A6 size card stock; however, there is no such error when printing to regular letter size plain paper.

How do I take printer apart to access this area and clear the jam?

I found another site that suggested these steps:

1. Check that all of the black plastic pieces turn freely when paper is fed through.
2. Take a fine grit sandpaper and gently sand the rubber spool/wheel in the bottom center of the pritner to re-texture it.
3. Clean all rollers with isopropyl alcohol.

Step 2, Sanding the rubber roller seemed to fix the problem completely.

It is telling you that there is a paper jam. Open the door, pull the jammed paper out, close the door, it should clear the message.

Paper keeps jamming on Samsung CLX-3160 FN. How do I prevent this from happening?


Paper jams are typically caused by the rubber rollers inability to put paper through the machine. Try cleaning the roller with damp rag to see if that improves performance. If the roller is badly worn, it will need to be replaced.

I have a Samsung CLX-3160FN, and after every page


Hi,

it is most likely that the fuser actuater arm is not sitting back to the sensor properly. open the back door you will be able to see the fuser, on your right hand side you should be able to see a fliper that sit in between a sensor. try to adjust the fliper flag and see if it works.

if it still continue to give you the same error. try remove the fuser four screw 2 side on each. adjust the flag again and fix it back. it should work and double check for any lose small pices of paper jam in the printer.

I removed a paper jam from rear of clx-3160fn. Now the rear door will not close all the way. The two plastic tabs on the rails inside seem to be in the way. Everything I have tried to do and move around...


power it off and on again ...but first repeat the operation like you did when you removed the paper jam...it might not be slide back completely ...
when you power it on keep the button pressed to reset ....
also take a good look to the roller to have all in place ...it might be not in place cause you forced the paper out ..or not removed all the paper if it broke in the process ..

CLX 2160 - paperjam


There is probably a jam in the paper feed area. Pull the paper tray out and stick your hand in to find and remove any paper stuck there. Then reinstall the paper tray and open and close the front door of the printer. The jam should be cleared.

If it is still showing paper jam, pull the tray out again and look to make sure you didn't miss any paper, then check the other areas of the printer (starting with the exit area) for paper.

My printer is 5 weeks old. My Samsung CLX 3175FN color laser printer has a paper jam. I have removed as much of the paper as possible, but it is still jammed ( where I cannot get at it ) in the upper rear...


Have you turned the printer off then tiurn it back on. If you have a paper jam, after you remove the paper, you must restart it for it to clear.
Otherwise, if there is paper still in the printer, turn off the printer remove all 4 toner cartridges and the waste cartridge. Once you do that you may be able to see the paper. You may be able to take one more thing out to where you can see the paper better, I am not sure.

CLX-3160FN Paper Jam when there is no paper jam.


Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud
