Question about Samsung CLX-3175FN Color Laser All-in-One Printer

1 Answer

Hello there. Whenever I print on my Samsung CLX-1375FN printer this is what happens: It prepares to print, then the top sheet of paper in the paper tray gets pulled in, but only about 1-2 inches; then "ding-dong, ding-dong," paper jam. This happens almost every time I print. Less frequently when the tray is full. Less frequently when I lift the tray up a little bit when it is pulling the paper from the tray. But even with these little tricks, it still happens. I cleaned the underside of the printer with that special air spray, but that didn't seem to help. To clear the paper jam, I remove the paper tray, pull the piece of paper out gently and then replace the tray; I open the door to check for other paper (which there rarely is) and then close the door. Interestingly, the paper tray always has to be pushed down so that the pile of paper clicks down again - does that mean anything? I saw the exact same paper jam on YouTube, but there was no solution. Anyone have a solution? Thanks in advance.

Constant Paper jams on CLX-3175FN


The fact that there appears to be no actual jam tells me that it is not picking up paper out of the tray. Try some alcohol on the pickup rollers, rubbing well. If that helps, replace these rollers.

CLX-3160FN Paper Jam when there is no paper jam.


Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud

E3 on LED paperwill not feed


Hello,

What you want to do is remove all paper, the prepare to run a print test page or print a blank sheet from some program, any program. Just be ready to do this.

Now, find a magazine cover or index card stock, something firm. Cut this magazine cover to the same width as regular paper 8 1/2 in the US or A4 in Eurpoe.

Now, when you start the print job, push the magazine cover or index stock through while its printing. Apply pressure it the key, to getting the thicker paper through.

This will clear the sensors in the printer and remove the error message.

Why did this happen? In the printer, there are numerous sensors to identify jammed paper. This can happen for the strangest reasons. By pushing thicker paper through while feeding paper by running a print job, the thicker paper forces the sensors back to their original position.

Regards,
Worldvet

Samsung CLX-3160FN prints and copies fine but can't scan


This may be obvious, but there's a "scanner lock" on this machine. It ships locked, and you need to unlock it when you receive it. Look up under where the paper comes out when you print, and on the left there's a little green switch. Make sure it's pulled towards you (you can see it also through the glass on the scanner bed).
