Question about Dell 5100cn Laser Printer

1 Answer

Entering the Service Menu Plus

Most printers have a separate menu you can access by hitting a button or combination on power-up... some are just cold-start, etc...

How do I get into the service menu on an Dell 5100cn. I recently replaced the Image Transfer Unit and the error did not clear.

Additionally, the printer is 'eating' the front edge of the paper...I am planning on acquiring and replacing the two feed rollers (found solution) but is there anything else you can suggest.

Fuser and Transfer Roller has also been replaced recently.

    I found a post that suggested that this is a rebranded Phaser 6300 printer. Of course, the interface is a little different; but I'm having more luck with xerox's support that Dell at this stage.



    Thanks for your input. The feed roller are in; I'm going out this afternoon to replace them...I'll check that combination then!

    Hi Thallant,



    Can you please tell me the exact error message you are getting?



    As far as the paper jam issue, replacing your feed rollers should resolve that.

Thallant, you can enter the menu by turning off the power switch, then turning the switch back on while holding down the up and down arrows on the panel. Hold them long enough to see "customer mode" (or something like that). There are lots of things in that menu I'd love to have a guide to, but I haven't yet found a guide.

Hi how do I reset the password and ID on the Samsung ML2165W printer?


Those are usually only accessible from the Service or Technician's menu. You'd have to be able to enter SERVICE MODE which may be holding a couple of buttons down while powering the printer up, or entering a series of numbers. Only the Service Manual will have that information.

The word "Factory" has appeared on the screen in red


Hi.

Factory on screen means that the TV is stuck in service mode (Durabrand and more). The problem is fixed accessing Service mode and resetting to factory default settings.
On Durabrand TVs problem is fixed using a programmable remote, entering service code on remote, and accessing service menu.
Procedure is listed on TV service manual.Most durabrand use Menu and key combination 683 to access service mode.
If that does not work, calll manufacturer number to get the key sequence to enter factory menu.

Start Up red light error 37,004.40:35596


That is a Jet Heat error. Most likely a bad print head. Could be the electronics module.
Either the print head heater has failed, or the supply voltage to the print head heater.
Either one is very expensive to replace.
