    I have a yellow light on my Dell 1100 also. In the manual it is referred to as an "orange" light. The manual suggests that it means your toner is low but I just changed my cartridge also. The next thing I'm going to do is clean the printer. I'm sure that it could use it. This printer is several years old but I just bought a new cartridge which will last me at least another year. I want to keep it alive at least that long. I'll let you know if this works.

    someone used my printer when i was gone and now the orange light is on. There is a fuse in the cartridge, so that is not the problem. It does print, but the light is on.

This will solve the orange light staying on problem.WELL i figured it out.
I noticed when i bought the new Cartridge it had a CLEAR GLASS FUSE at the front
then i noticed my old cartridge did not have one , maybe it fell out when i remove the cartridge
so i did not install the fuse in the new one because i thought i did not need one ( ps i bought an aftermarket cartridge Samsung ML-2010D3 , slight modification ,i had to change the top plate , very easy)

My Dell 1130 Laser Printer has a red light flashing (triangle and <--> symbol). What does this mean?

Your toner chip page counter has to be reached on last point (run out). Normally one OEM toner cartridge chip can print 2.5k pages, after that cartridge has been locked (although it's remain toner) and red light will be blinking. So, you can't able to take print furthermore in this state. You need to change cartridge chip or you can contact me by my mobile: +91 9330033560 or write a mail to my email id: <> I have a solution for changing printer firmware which will make you printer permanent solution for taking print out without changing chip.

What does it mean when the orange light on the right side of the printer is on?

It is most likely just that the toner cartridge is getting low.

See the manual here, page 41.

Dell inspiron 1100 wont stay on

Normally the battery light will rapidly flash orange if the battery is defective. It will alternate between orange and green if it is too hot to charge. Or it will either flash orange or be a steady orange if the battery is low or completely discharged. Based on this and the fact that you cannot get it to stay on for more than 7 seconds, I would have to say that you need to recharge the battery by plugging the laptop into an AC outlet. After all, it can't run without the juice.
