Samsung CLX-3160FN "scanner locked"

my smasung clx3160fn makes a clunking sound when i turn it on and says "scanner locked" on the little screen. It will not copy or scan, but will print still. It is like the scanning light is stuck and won't move along the track. Any suggestions?

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.

how to fix transfer belt

how to fix transfer belt error in my samsung CLX3160fn

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 called Samsung because my printer did the same thing. Try a hard reset, if that doesn't work you have to replace the transfer belt. hit Menu then # then 193 Black Start....you have to do this all in about 3 seconds. It will come up and say Select Country (USA) hit OK and then it is suppose to reset it. If it doesn't work the transfer belt has to be replaced. If you are under warranty they will send you this for FREE.....

I am out of warranty and have to pay $150 to get one.

Good Luck

samsung clx-3160fn deve home sensor error

samsung clx-3160fn deve home sensor error

Answer

Dev. Home error can be fixed by stretching out a solenoid spring on the power cord side of the printer. The solenoid acts as a clutch to stop the spinning developer actuator at the right spot.

The problem is that the spring gets weak over time / the cogs round out over time and the solenoid finger is overcome by the spinning cogs, and resulting in selecting the wrong developer.

Open up the right side (power cord side) of the printer (take off top cover, then take off side cover). Then, find a solenoid (little metal square) that touches the white plastic vertical spur gear. Take the spring off the solenoid. Now, put the spring back on - only this time you will attach one anchor point to the middle of the spring as to pre-stretch the spring for more tension.

You have to start Smarthru 4 and use it from there. First you have to find the scanner with Smarthu then scan. Play with Smarthru and the settings in it. It took some playing with it for me to get it set right. Now it works just fine.

Samsung CLX 2160 "paperjam2" problem

My CLX 2160 printer is showing the error message "scan unit open or paperjam2". I have checked everywhere and there is no paper jammed in the printer. I have opened the back, checked underneath (tray feeding area) and opened the front. There is no apparent paper jam. I have also cleaned all the rollers I can see. None of this has fixed the problem. Any solution would be greatly appreciated.

Hi ...

IN CLX 2160, paper jams usually occur in three areas of a printer. The following error messages indicate the area in which the jam has occurred:

  • Jam 0 indicates the paper failed to pass through the first sensor.
  • Jam 1 indicates the paper failed to pass through the second sensor and has jammed around the toner cartridge.
  • Jam 2 indicates the paper failed to pass through the second sensor and has jammed near the fuser.
Your error shows paper jam2 but i am giving you directions to fix the paper jams indicated by each error message so that you can handly any kind of paper jam issue with your printer.
Paper Jam 0 When your printer displays Jam 0, paper has failed to pass through the first sensor.
To remove the jammed paper, follow these steps:
  1. Power your printer off.
  2. Open the cover of your printer.
  3. Gently pull the paper toward you to remove it from the printer. Note: If you do not remove the paper slowly, you can damage the printer and the printer will require service.
  1. After removing the paper, make sure there is no additional paper in the paper path.
  2. Close the printer cover, and then power on your printer. jam%200.jpg
If your printer still displays Jam 0 after you turn on the printer, unplug the printer, and then repeat the steps above. Make sure all paper has been removed and the printer's rollers are in their correct positions. Before turning your printer back on, make sure all the cover doors are fully closed.
Paper Jam 1 When your printer displays Jam 1, the paper has failed to pass through the second sensor and has jammed around the toner cartridge.
To remove the jammed paper, follow these steps:
  1. Power your printer off.
  2. Open the cover of your printer.
  3. Gently pull the paper toward you to remove it from the printer. Note: If you do not remove the paper slowly, you can damage the printer and the printer will require service.
  1. After removing the paper, make sure there is no additional paper in the paper path.
  2. Close the printer cover, and then power on your printer. jam%201.jpg
If your printer still displays Jam 1 after you turn on the printer, unplug the printer, and then repeat the steps above. Make sure all paper has been removed and the printer's rollers are in their correct positions. Before turning your printer back on, make sure all the cover doors are fully closed.
Paper Jam 2 When your printer displays Jam 2, the paper has failed to pass through the second sensor and has jammed at the fuser.
To remove the jammed paper, follow these steps:
  1. Power your printer off.
  2. Open the cover of your printer.

If your printer still displays Jam 2 after you turn on the printer, unplug the printer, and then repeat the steps above. Make sure all paper has been removed and the printer's rollers are in their correct positions. Before turning your printer back on, make sure all the cover doors are fully closed.
