Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

I have Samsung CLX3175 FN and lately the paper jams on me all the time. According to one of your expert komguy, he suggested that the Exit Sensor need to be replaced. I got the part. I don't know exactly how to replace it. Wonder if there is any diagram available to let me know where the sensor is? Thanks Irene West

    Hi Joshi,

    I tried per your suggestion. The printer was not fixed by your first option.

    I need instructions on how to pull out the fuser, I don't exactly know which part is the fuser.

    Toners are easy to pull out, they can be pulled out from the front. How do I pull out the fuser?

    How easy it is to find the location of the Exit Sensor?

To clear the paper jam, please turn off the printer and it will attempt to clear the jam by itself.
You might see an error code on the printer too which will help you identify the issue.

To remove the paper jam manually, turn off the printer and then remove the paper tray.
Check for paper that is trapped in the same. Also try to access other printer areas where paper travels in the course of printing.

You could remove the toner or ink cartridge go gain access to hidden areas in the printer.
Try to roll the gears and rotate the paper feed mechanism to free up the jam.

If you locate a piece of paper hold it with both hands and attempt to get as large a grip as possible, then slowly pull.
The objective is to not to cause a tear in the paper and pull it out in one smooth motion.

Put the toner and paper tray back in it's place.
Switch on the printer and check by printing a test page.
This should resolve the issue for you.

In case you still need to replace the sensor, please pull out the toner and then the fuser.
You will be able to locate the Exit Sensor right beneath those.

If this doesn't work for you, please comment and let me know, and I will be more than happy to assist you to further resolve your issue.

I will appreciate your feedback and positive rating for this solution.
Thank you.

Fix paper jam 2 on a Samsung CLX-3170 printer

paper jam 2 is a jam in the fuser/exit area.

did the paper jam come out in one piece? if not reassemble the torn paper to see how much is still inside.

sometimes there will be a small fingernail size piece of paper holding open the fuser/exit sensor flag.

sometimes the sensor flag itself is dislodged and needs reassembly.
attached is video in how to dissassemble the printer if required

We have a paper jam according to the display but have found small pieces of paper tucked away but cant find any more is there a reset or is there somewhere more may be that we cant see/get to?

If your machine is detecting a jam with no obvious signs of paper, you most likely have small amounts of debris or dirt blocking the jam sensor. I suggest manually feeding a piece of thick card stock through the paper path, then spray the path with some canned air, as this will act to clear any dirt blocking the jam sensor.

My Samsung CLP 315w refuses to print a whole A4 page. Stops half way then message comes up paper jam but when I open back / front, paper not jammed and when I close it document continues printing then...


most likly hood is your exit sensor is faulty. The printer work in this way. if it does not print out all the document. it will print again. that is why you kept getting this same issue after a jam open and close door it will print again.

replace the exit sensor it will help.

Printer stops hafway the print, giving paper jam. once paper is removed it still gives 'paper jam' , once turned off ad on is disappers but next print is still jammed halfway

Yes, bad exit sensor. Go to YouTube and watch this video: 5fJHykzkfww

You can get the part on eBay for about $10 and it's a fairly simple 15 minute fix.

I get an Error message that states "Paper Output Slot Jammed" and there is no paper or foreign objects in the printer at all!

That happens when the sensor arm is bent or broken, it's inside behind the platen roller, above the white guide plates. If you can see it look for scraps of paper holding it up, if it's bent or broken you need a shop repair.

Paper jams. Printer was cleaned, but it still jams.

Whare does the paper jam at?
It may be a fuser problem.

start a print from tray 1/manual feed and just as the trailing edge of paper is entering the machine; quickly open it to stop print and take out the cartridge and look at it's drum and the paper underneath. If the issue is there at that point then it would point to the cartridge. if not then the fuser

Let me know..
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
