Question about Samsung Office Equipment & Supplies
SOURCE: CLP-510 SPL-C Error message
SPL stands for "Samsung Printer Language". You are using an USB cable that is either too long (above 6 ft.) or too thin (cheap cables).
The reason why the test page prints is because it is a very simple and small page (thinking on kbyte terms). But larger streams of data do not arrive correctly due to attenuation and the error page prints instead.
If it is absolutely necessary to connect beyong 6 ft, you need either a good quality USB cable (try the Belkin brand found at OfficeMax), or connect using a parallel cable.

This 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 picture below is from a Samsung CLP-300 but these both use the same Imaging Unit so this should work. It's just a little more involved taking off the top scanner / buttonpad off the CLX-3160.
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.
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.

Try disconnecting your printer from your pc and then uninstalling the drivers for it in your control panel. Go to the manufacturers website (Samsung) and click on the drivers and sofware area to download a new copy of the files necessary to run it.
After installing, reconnect your printer to your pc and try printing a test page to see if this has corrected the error.
