How to fix transfer belt

To fix this error, you will need to replace the transfer belt and/or reset the transfer belt count on your printer. If you are happy the the print quality of the printer, then you can try to reset the transfer belt count and that will clear the error. Otherwise you need to get a replacement transfer belt and swap it out before resetting the count.

To remove your existing transfer belt, you need to open the front panel, and remove the imaging unit by pulling the green handle. The belt is located above the imaging unit. Pull the belt down to release and then pull it straight out of the machine. Take your new belt and slide the back into the machine and push the front of the belt up to lock in place. Then you need to reset the belt count.

To do this, follow the steps below.

1. Enter Tech Mode by pressing [MENU] [#] [1] [9] [3] [4]
2. If you do not see the Tech Mode menu press the menu button again. (You need to enter the key sequence quickly.)
3. Select Tech Menu
4. Select DataSetup
5. Arrow to Clear Counts and press OK
6. Enter Password 1934
7. Arrow to Transfer Belt and press OK.

Hope this helps you.

I am gettig the message

It sounds like you need to replace the Magenta toner (the pinkish-red colour)
You can call Samsung and order toner: 1-800-SAMSUNG in Canada and USA
If you go on Samsungs website you can get all the drivers/software and user manual information as well as tech support: http://www.samsung.com/ae/support/detail/supportPrdDetail.do?menu=SP01&prd_mdl_cd=CLX-3160FN%2fXSG&srchword=CLX-3160FN
Hope this helps!

Replace waste toner tank

Open your user manual.

Or get one - go to google or samsung.

The life of the waste toner container unit is approximately 1,250 pages for full color 5% image printing or 5,000 pages for black printing. When the life span of the waste toner container has expired, Replace/Install Waste Toner Tank appears on the display of the control panel,
indicating the waste toner container needs to be replaced. Otherwise your printer stops printing.

To replace the waste toner container:

1 Turn the machine off, then wait a few minutes for the machine to cool.

2 Open the front cover.

3 Pull the waste toner container out of the machine using its handle.

--- above from manual, following is my paraphrasing due to lack of pictures ---
4. remove the container cap from the back side and cap the opening

5. take the new waste container out of its package

6. install the new waste toner container.

You may wish to TRY EMPTYING the waste toner, but you will find toner is the messiest and possibly dangerous (inhallation, etc) stuff you've worked with. it is an extremely find powder and can cause an awful mess and is best disposed of by capping and replacing the container with a new one (shop around to find them).

DO NOT attempt to vacuum up toner - just my personal opinion - I suspect many vacuums may not have fine enough "bags" to capture this intentionally very fine dust. BUT Toner vacuums do exist and some "may" work.

Won't print (surge?) after storm; fax off the hook

Yes it would appear your printer have been damaged due to the storm. The reason your fax is "off hook" the that the photocoupler that protects the printer from surges on the telephoone line has "blown". THe printing problem is due the the surge that damaged your computer also passed down the USB cable to the Printer and has "fried" that part of the circuitry
It maybe possible to repair it but you will need to take it to a Samsung Repair centre or Authorised Repair centre

Sorry for the bad news but hope it helped

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).

SamsungCLX 3160FN Software problem with scanning to OCR and Email

you may have to set up the email server address.ie the SMTP Server address in the file sharing settings. you cant scan to email without this. you need the email provider address and you may need to set up your admin email. you can use your own for this. if you can scan to a folder you can always forward as email from your docs folder if you have a problem.
