how do i manually rotate cartridge carosel


You don't want to rotate the toner cartridges, you need to get a new Drum Cartridge assembly.
When you get that, it will have detailed directions, but you'll end up opening the top of the printer and pulling the drum straight up.

This is a different component than a toner cartridge. The toner carts are the supply of new toner. The drum cart collects excess toner during the printing process, and when it's full you need to get a new (empty) one.


If you connect to your printer's web interface it will have a link for "order supplies" that will take you right to the dell.com page for it.
Post a comment back if you need me to get the URL, and I'll grab it from my printer when I get home tonight.

It will not copy after I emptied the waste container.


There really isn't enough information given to give a proper solution. This copier has the drum light come on steady or flashing to indicate the waste toner needs to be removed. I don't know if you're a technician or not but lay people have emptied the toner cartridge instead of removing the drum, removing the cap on top of the drum, emptying the waste toner , replacing the cap on the drum, then putting the drum back into the copier. I've never had a copier keep the drum light on after doing this.

Let me know if you need more help.

Xerox XD130df empties toner back into cartridge overflow


that really sounds like a defective toner cartridge. Either there was no developer in the cartridge or the metering blade that limits the ammount that gets onto the roller is bad.
Has to be the toner cartridge. Unfortunatly that may have also ruined the drum and cleaner within the drum cartridge. Return them for an exchange.
The reason it is running and running is that it is trying to read a patch that is developed on the drum and add toner to make a dark enough copy. And that definatly is not happening.
If the laser was not turning on, the machine would come up with a L something code. Besides if the laser was not comming on, the paged would be blank.
You can pretty much eliminate everything but the toner cartridge.
