    I have similar problem.

    Black print is very weak/faint on left side of printout.

    No use to make copies as text is hard to read.

    Printer is almost 1 year old and otherwise really good.

    I changed to new black color, but problem still remains.

    Anyone with som tips on how to adjust or clean some parts so it works again? Buying a new image unit will be quite costy.

    Regards HW

This is usually due to the imaging unit going out, but can also be a problem with the main board itself...unfortunately that means rma is really the only option...which is NOT going to be fun fyi as samsung has poor customer service.

Samsung CLX-3160FN problem with faded black images/text only


Many of today's printers have a "toner save" option, which makes the black appear lighter, and I'm pretty sure this isn't your problem. However, I wanted to rule-out the obvious first, which is just a setting.
If you're seeing the black lighter in vertical "stripes" or segments in your printing, then it's most likely due to a dirty toner cartridge (but you said you replaced it), or cleaning the LSU inside the unit (as it says in the owners manual).
Just in case you don't have the manual handy, here's an online link to it:http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/200611/20061122152910875_CLX-3160_English.pdf

I hope this helps!

I have a Samsung CLX-3160FN multi-function color laser printer. It recently started to print poorly in black (that's what I mostly print). Geniune Samsung toner carts are installed. The black is at 76%. I...


If the black toner prints like the image below with alternating bands of light and dark printing, the problem lies with your imaging unit.13911cf.jpg Specifically the developer blades in the imaging unit has toner build up on the blades. The more you use a particular color, the more it builds up to the point that it exhibits itself as faded images on the paper.

It can be fixed by replacing the imaging unit for $100+, but it will reappear again after sometime. Or you can fix the problem yourself and save yourself $100. You will need to open the imaging unit and clean the blades. I have a description on how to do this in my tips section. Or your can click on this link, http://www.fixya.com/support/r4120906-clean_developer_blades_samsung_clp_300. Hopes this helps you.

Try printing the demo page, there's a man on there with a black tuxedo. If you see snowflakes on the black suit, you need a new hi voltage power supply circuit board. Also most of the generic toners don't work well in this machine.

When i print,the black colored lettres and lines show faded although i put a new drum. The colorprints are still good.


This problem arises if the printer is not used for along period/ might occur when the ink is change. Compare it to the case when a fountain pen is refilled. it takes a few time to get perfect flow.
This might be also due to the clogging of black ink inside.

Try the following operations from the printer properties dialog box:
Cleaning/ deep cleaning
Nozzle check

Hope this helped
