Nope. I've tried everything. Feel lucky that yours doesn't jam 9 of 10 tries when copying (among other things). I'm going to take a baseball bat to mine.

    I know. I only wish I'd have done this research BEFORE I bought the stupid thing. I normally do... not sure what happened this time, but an expensive lesson. I do know I'll never buy another Samsung product. I am researching my next all-in-one and the Brother looks like a winner.

I just replaced my black toner on my samsung clx-3160fn printer. When I print the black quality is still bad. I made sure everything is in correctly and tight. What could the problem be?


The problem is not a shortage of the toner -- it's either a dirty drum or some other problem. Either way, it's nothing that you can fix by yourself -- take the printer to a qualified technician for proper servicing. Or, just responsibly recycle the printer, and buy a new one.

My Samsung CLX-3160FN has stopped printing colour. I have changed all the cartridges and it will copy in colour, but prints in black and white.


You need to check your document print settings on your PC. Drill through the printer properties menu until you get to the colour settings. At a guess you currently have it set to "Greyscale" rather than colour or auto.

Go to printer properties and check whether you have selected print in grey mode and also check whether you have selected the economic mode. Rectify the same will solve your problem.

I have a CLX-3160FN Printer and it says that my Magenta Toner level is low How can I fix that?


Have you tried putting a shim under it to make it higher?
Seriously...If the toner is low, you have to buy a new toner cartridge to replace the on that's low. No ink toner = no print.
Visit Staples, Best Buy, etc. to buy a new toner cartridge.

My CLX-3160FN acts like it is printing and copying, but blank pages come out.


Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
