If the printer LCD screen continues to display the same error message, do the following:
Remove both cartridges from the printer.
Move the red lock switch (at the back of the printer) from the down position to the up position, and then move it back to the down position.
Unplug the printer and turn it onto its left side.
Then return the printer to the upright position and reapply the power supply.
Attempt this fix twice and then try to print and scan once more.
note : Installing the wrong upgrade file will not cause damage to the printer, but the LCD display will display some characters incorrectly. Downloading and installing the correct firmware will resolve this issue

Print result sideways


It sounds like your printer is set to print landscape, instead of portrait mode. Next time you want to print, click on file(top left of screen), then print (don't just click on the little printer icon). This will open a new printer window where you can choose different setting. The option to change from landscape to portrait will be listed somewhere in that window. Once you have selected that feature and print it will stay that way unless you change it. You will have to check this setting in each computer program you use.

Samsung "scanner locked"


I went through the same thing! It drove me nuts, and I even calls CS, which is great by the way. The sweet girl on the other line couldn't figure it out, but I finally Googled it.
In the opening where the printed pages come out, if you put your hand in there, on the top left is a lever.
This is the scanner lock. Once you flip the lever and hit the stop/clear button, it should be all better. At least that is what worked for me!

Scanner Lock Switch


Lift the document cover, and you should see a small gray slide type switch on the top of the scanner, near the front left corner of the glass. Slide the switch to the unlock position, close the document cover, turn off the machine. Wait five seconds, and turn machine back on. This should restore the scanner function.

Samsung CLX-3160FN "scanner locked"


Every Samsung multifunctional device has a scanner lock underneath the glass. This is to prevent scanner damage during shipment. Th user's manual in the CD and the unpacking sheet clearly illustrate where this lock is. If you open the top lid and look to the lower left corner of the glass, you will see a small lock-open/lock-closed symbol. Underneath that symbol you will find the lock. I'm including a small visual reference of a similar model. Just remember to turn off and on the unit after the lock is removed.
