Question about Samsung CLX-2160N All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

Hi, I have had my CLX-2160 printer for 3 years now and its started to print with a fade on the left side only and have just under half black ink left. Is it worth changing the black toner cartridge or does something else needs to be cleaned or replaced? Or even get a new printer? Please advise anyone. Thanks Paul

Hello.
There are two reasons the fade happens. Running out of toner and the drum not responding correctly. The Drum is the unit that transfers the toner to the paper. if it gets damaged or dirty inconsistent print is usually the result. Try taking the toner out, shaking it and replacing it to see if it affects the print quality. if it does not price a replacement drum and toner, compare it to the price of a new printer and this will answer the second part of your question!!!
I hope this helps Regards GM

Hi there,

Try this steps it might help,

1. detach the paper tray and push it back correctly.
2. open the front door and remove toner cartridges, on left inner side u may see a light sensor which detects the toner cartridges.. simply clean this section by a small cotton bud. and in the left side of toner unit there is a sensor door, behind that door there is also a light sensor bulb, which needs to be cleaned by a cotton bud.

Please rate this solution if found useful.

Thanks

Samsung clx-2160 says waste tank is full. What must I do and where is the waste tank?


If you open the front of the printer then you will find a waste tank in the left side - its gray. Take it out and empty it, and put the tank back in place.
This works for Samsung CLX-2160

I have a samsung clx-3160fn printer. All toners are ok, espcecially the black one - BUT when I print black&white doc, it is comign out really faded - as if the black toner is low. BUT it is not!! ...


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.
