    Our printer was making a terrible noise, after reading this we took each cartridge out in turn and the black cartridge was stiff and the gear wouldn't turn, we've replaced it and all seems to be OK ... touch wood. Thanks very much, we put a call in to Samsung Technical help 24 hrs ago and they haven't even replied yet!!

Hard to tell without hearing it. But, if it is doing it all the time it is turned on but not in use most of the time that would be a fan making the noise. The other suspect would be a fault toner cartridge or the fuser. you may need to have a tech look at this.
Hope that helps...

I had this same problem, loud clicking noise. Turns out there is a gear on each of the toner cartridge. Remove each cartridge one at a time and try and turn the gear. It should turn without to much trouble. If it's real stiff that's your culprit. If you replace that one it should solve your problem

My samsung clx 3160fn prints with a faded streak in the center of the paper


There is some-thing that is dirty that is making contact with the paper.

My guess is a roller or a little metal guide wheel or the like.

Clean it with tissue paper.

Use the already printed page to line up to see where about the source of the line is comming from.

Till next time!

Samsung clx-3160fn won't print


Usually I've seen that happen when you use generic toners. There are 4 toner clutches down the right side, with the right cover off you can see which clutch is doing the grinding. Many of the generics are overfilled and hard to turn and will make the noise until you loosen them by hand turning them til they loosen up, or just replacing.

The link into the Samsung web site for the 64-bit XP/Vista printer driver follows:

http://www.samsung.com/us/support/download/supportDownDetail.do?group=printersmultifunction&type=printersmultifunction&subtype=colorlasermultifunctionprintersfaxes&model_nm=CLX-3160FN&language=&cate_type=all&mType=DR&dType=D&vType=L&cttID=1805107&prd_ia_cd=06010100&disp_nm=CLX-3160FN

Just make sure you completely uninstall the previous driver, just in case.

Be blessed.
