When the toners go in, they are locked down using the colored part of the cartridge. This holds them in place for printing. However, sometimes even when unlocked they can be very difficult to remove.

After you are sure it is unlocked, do your best to wiggle the cartridge until it start to feel like it is coming loose, and you should be able to pull it out. Do not under any circumstances force it out, just take some time to loosten it up.

I think the following instructions are quite clear. In any case, before giving an inappropriate rating pleas contact us. Thanks for trying rating should be used only for unhelpful solutions and I do not think these here are the cases. Please follow the instructions from point six:

6 - Connect the printer to power and turn it on

7 - The toner cartridge carrier rotates and then stops. After confirming
the Insert Black Toner (K) message, open the front door.

8 - Hold the tape on the protective cover and gently pull it forward to
remove the cover from each cartridge slot. You only have to remove the
cover from each toner cartridge slot the first time you use your printer.
Toner will be present on the roller.

What to do when toner is low


Remove the toner cartridge.
Gently "roll" it from side-to-side, to evenly distribute the toner. Do not "shake" it.

Eventually, you'll either need to buy a new toner-cartridge (either from Dell or via eBay) or find a store that refills ink-jet and ink-toner cartridges.

My 3000cn ran out of black and cyan toner, so I


I have fixed this now using advice that I found from other users on this site who had posted similar questions. In case it's useful to any of you, pull open the front cover and operate the small blue lever that you'll find behind it on the right. This opens a secret compartment on the outside of the printer and there you will find the cleaning rod. Pull and push this in and out about 15 times and it should fix any problems like the one I had.

Unable to remove black cartridge, it is really stuck. Help


I just changed my black toner this past week, and finally figured out why the cartridges get stuck like this.

First, you must eject the toner cartridge on the front-panel menu:
Menu->Replace Toner->Eject Toner->Black(K)

It will say "Rotating to Black Toner(K)" and then say "Black Toner(K) Ready to Eject"

Now, open the front panel and you'll see the black toner cartridge in front. You can also open the top panel if you want more light on your work area.

Lift the lock handle on the old toner cartridge to the "unlock" position, and here's the part that the Dell instructions don't have:

There are two channels for the toner cartridges -- one on each side. Run your finger down the channel on the right, and you'll feel a small, spring-loaded catch. This catch often gets sticky and won't release the cartridge without some help. Don't force it, but gently move it towards the back of the printer and it should release.

Now the old cartrdige should slide right out, and you can finish per the instructions that came with the new cartridge.

How do you remove toner cartridge from a Dell 3010cn color laser printer correctly.appears to be stuck trying to remove


This is how to Install or replace the Toner Cartridge.

Install or replace the toner cartridge while the printer is on (if the power is not on, the cartridge carrier does not rotate).

1. After confirming the Insert Yellow Toner(Y) message, open the front door.

2. Hold the tape on the protective cover and pull it forward to remove the cover from each cartridge slot.


NOTE: You need to remove the protective cover only the first time that you install the toner.
NOTE: Dispose of the protective cover after you remove it.
NOTE: The protective cover is attached to each toner cartridge mount.

3. Make sure the color of the toner cartridge matches the slot on the toner cartridge carrier. The order is Y, M, C, K. Gently shake the cartridge to distribute the toner evenly.

4. Lift the tab up 90 degrees and pull the toner seal straight off, keeping it parallel with the toner cartridge.

5. To insert the toner cartridges, align the arrows on the cartridge with the corresponding arrows on the printer. Guide the cartridge in until it snaps into place and then push down the handhold to lock the cartridge in place.

6. Close the front door.


NOTE: Make sure the toner cartridge is installed correctly. Otherwise, the front door cannot close firmly.

7. The toner cartridge carrier rotates to the next empty slot. When the color of the newly inserted cartridge appears on the display, followed by the Insert message, insert the next toner cartridge.

8. Repeat steps 1 through 7 when inserting the remaining cartridges.
Cheers!!

Changing Dell 3000cn printer cartridge


The instructions always come with the new cartridges and also are printed on the new cartridges. You move the right hand (colored) side up to unlock. Carefully pull the cartridge up and out (you can screw up the gears if you don't put the cartridges in and out straight. Make sure you've followed the instructions that come with the new toner cartridge (removing tape, shaking), put it in the same way and move the right hand side down to lock.

open the front cover, on the left side there is an you will see a small opening in line with the toner. I used a folded peice of paper to press the small lever inside the opening. This will allow the toner carousel to turn. There is a groove that aligns with a notch on the toner cartridge. Line this up and you should be able to remove the cartridge.
