Question about Samsung CLX-3170FN All-In-One Laser Printer

1 Answer

I was told the fuser needed to be replaced. The printer would only print 1/4 of the page and stop. You can also tell the printer was very hot after this occurs. Can you tell me how much this part will cost and how hard it is to install. Thanks, Gary

Hi Gary, Your printer needs a new paper sensor installed that is situated on the left hand side of the machine directly above the fuser. The part should cost less than US$10. There is no ther quick fix. Good luck!

How do i stop my printer from leaving ink streaks down the right side of my pages?


I was going to suggest removing the fuser and looking at the rollers, but on this printer it's a major operation.
Instead let's run the half test. Put paper in the manual feed tray(tray 1). Print to the printer. When the sheet of paper gets pulled about 3/4 of the way in, open the top cover. Pull out the toner cartridge. Look down at the paper. Does it have a streak down the right side? If yes, replace the toner, if no, have the fuser replaced.

My hp1012 is printing dark with shading on the pages and shadow or echos. Can something be replaced or fixed?


with this issue, you pretty much have to run a half way test unless you have the convieniance of another toner to try. basically, it's either going to br your toner or your fuser and a halfway test will determine this if you don't have another toner to try.

The Half-way Test

You will need to print a page and open the toner lid when you think the paper is underneath the toner cartridge. This will stop the printing so you can pull the toner cartridge out and look at the partially printed paper. It may take a few tries to time this test correctly so the paper stops under the toner but not completely into the fuser.
1. Print a test page from Tray 1, the "fold-down" Multi-Purpose tray on your printer.
2. Just as the test page completely disappears into the printer, open the toner lid door. The print job will stop, sensing an error.

3. Pull the toner cartridge out, and you will find the test page sitting directly underneath the toner.
4. Carefully remove the page by gently pulling the page upwards & free from the toner cavity. Careful! The toner has not yet been fused to the paper, so the print can be somewhat messy on your hands and may smudge easily.

Examine the printout.
1. If you do not see the print defect on your test page, that means the defect is being added later in the print process by the fuser. Fusers are the main component in a maintenance kit; click here to view our selection of maintenance kits for various LaserJet printers.
2. If the print defect is visible on this printout, that means the print defect is occurring before the fuser. Try replacing the toner cartridge (click here to view our selection of toner cartridges).
If you determine the print defect is occurring before the fuser, and swapping toners doesn’t fix the problem, there could be several things causing the problem. In the order of most likely to least likely: you could have two defective toner cartridges, the transfer roller might be faulty, the laser scanner could be dirty or defective, or the high voltage power supply could be bad. You might want to email or call since these scenarios are not as common.

On anything other than plain printer paper, the ink tends to rub off the printed page - really a problem with labels and envelopes. I have tried changing the printer settings for these items, but it does...


You may need a shop to increase the fuser temperature. You also may just need a new fuser. In printing preferences you need to make sure you're telling the printer you're using envelopes or labels. When the toner rubs off, the fuser is just not hot enough.

Lexmark C772n - 127.07 Service fuser error


I searched the Technical Manual and there is no explanation of the code. The user manual simply says there is a printer failure. They ask that you turn the printer off, wait 10 secs and then restart. Then call 1-800-LEXMARK and they will tell you about the code.

Given that your printer is saying Service Fuser, it is highly likely the fuser is ready for replacement. The fuser is the component that heats to high temperature to fuse the toner to the paper and complete the print cycle.

Hp laserjet 4 plus - keep getting a horizontal black line


yes you have to catch printer making the line and then as a page is being printed you need to open door to stop paper after green cylinder(drum) as it is entering fuser, then you need to remove paper from printer without pulling through the fuser, if you see the line then rub your finger across line up and down page, if it smears at all then its the cartridge if not then the fuser

Smudge marks on paper; otherwise normal


fuser is usually replaced as a assembly, it's the hot bit a back.

Can only be two things the drum or the fuser as our headstrong friend has correctly explained.

More than likely it is the drum they last about 4 toners i think.

Learn the art of getting a page to stop halfway threw printing, you want to stop the page after the drum has put a image on the paper but before paper has gone threw the fuser (hotbit).

Once you have mastered the position correctly by stopping the printing by opening the door and removing drum/toner cartridge, to reveal the paper that is printed but can be rubbed off, we will know if marks are coming from the drum (you will see them) or from the fuser, if print is fine
