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.

Paper jam all the time


I've got the same problem but with envelopes. Every time I want to print envelopes the printer jams. It happens at least every 3rd or 4th envelope? Any suggestions? I wonder if I have the tray setup properly?

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.

My samsung CLX-3160 says "paper jam" and yet there is no paper jam


Open the back door, and inside at the top above the fuser there is a cover that will lift up. In front of the cover will be a spike.

Life the cover, and let the spike (a paper sensor) go into place under the cover and replace the cover and close the door, and it should work.

The spike is lifted as paper passes through.

If you ever lifted the spike while the cover was open and then closed the cover, the spike can't get back so is always lifted and it thinks there is always paper

MESSAGE REPLACE/ INSTALL TONER WASTE TANK EVEN THOGHT I HAVE REPLACE IT ON A SAMSUNG CLX-3160 FN



When this happened, I took the tank out and shook it out into a garbage can (do this outside and be very careful not to breathe the dust). I then took a shop vac and held the hose at the opening while blowing compressed air into the tank. Wiggle the air nozzle around and you'll get out 99% of the toner. Pay extra attention to the sensor optics (plastic bulges on the sides of the tank).These need to be clean since the printer knows when the tank is full because the toner blocks light shining from one side of the tank to the other

Reinstall the tank and be sure it is fully inserted. If they printer is still on, turn it OFF. Close the front door of the machine and turn it back on.

Continue printing.

We have the samsung clx 3160 fn laser printer and the ink is really low and needs to be refilled. Is this something that we need to have a tech service it or can we do it ourselves, also how do we change...


You can buy toner cartridges to this machine and fix the problem yourselves. Go to any office supply store and they will have toner cartridges for the Samsung clx 3160. The display will flash the name fo the cartridge color that needs to be replaced. Just open the front door of the machine, pull out the empty cartridges and pop in the new ones.
