    DELL Color laser 3115 cn service tag 3BRGDB1 refurbished will not print duplex but will print on one side. Bought it about 2 months ago. Checking Dell website it appears it was sold 3/12/07 and another note indicated it was sold to a non-American address. One helper gave me a Canadian phone number for Dell but they and USA have no record of my purchase..

    Still will not duplex print. Thanks to you I was able to add the duplex function to the preferences to use the long or short edge to flip over the paper. I notice quite a few postings about the same printer not duplexing so Dell is certainly not HP by a long shot.

    Hi mascmen7,



    Please tell me the service tag of your machine, when you purchased it, and a better discription of the problem you are having, as part of your question/request was cut off.



    As far as the manual, you should be able to download the manual online.



    Again, provide me with the SERVICE TAG... this should be a 7 character alpha numeric code that you can find on a sticker, just inside the front door.

Mascmen7,

although I would still like you to let me know the service tag ( so I can check on your warranty ), I am going to take a stab at what I think you are having a problem with.

I have had several customers that have had difficulty with their Dell printers when in fact there was no hardware defect at all, but simply that the options were not set in their Driver.

One customer couldnt print from tray 2 because tray 2 was not "installed" in the driver.

See the image below. If you go to control panel and then printers and faxes, right click on your printer and then select properties. ( see image )

the last tab ( and i know it isn't easy to see here ) is marked as options.

Click there, and then make sure that the duplexer is either "available" as shown in the above driver properties window, or on some Dell printers, it actually shows a list on the left and the available options on the right. If this is the case for you, simply highlight the duplexer and "add" to move it to the columb on the right.

You would think that just installing the print driver would also insure the printer was added as configured, but sometimes it does not.

Let me know how you make out.

Cory

How can reset all setting dell 3115 cn


"Here is what I did to reset the Dell 3115cn Laser Printer. In the users manual for the 3115cn in section 6 "Changing System Settings" "Resetting Defaults" refers to page 64 where it says, " For more information, see "Reset Defaults" in the User's Guide. Only I did not get a User Guide with my Dell. So I Googled "3115cn user guide" and downloaded it to my desktop and then went to Resetting Defaults. In the attachment "Initializing NVRAM for Network Settings" is what I did. Hope this helps someone else."

How configure duplexer dell 3110 cn?


You don't really need to configure it as such.

The printer should recognise the duplexer if it is fitted correctly, and it's difficult NOT TO.

Printing a settings page will show the duplexer under Printer Options.

You printer driver needs to be aware of the duplexer, there is an option to 'get information from printer' within the Windows driver.

Once the driver knows the duplexer is available, you'll have an option in the printer driver to print double sided.

Removal of paper stuck in a dell 3115 fuser?


It's best to remove the fuser to get access to it. This video will show you how to remove it, and which levers to move to release tension in the pinch roller to clear the jam http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UjyggtF8d1k After you remove the jam make sure to do a close inspection on the internal roller (use a flashlight). You're looking for any scratches or "dents" in the colored roller (sometimes a deep red/brown color sometimes blue) if there are scratches you are probably going to have to replace the fuser. The imperfections on the fuser roller will show up on your printed pages. If you do need a new fuser you can find them for $160, or the entire rebuild maintenance kit for $375 http://www.fastprinters.com/productdetails.asp?PRODUCT_ID=DELL-UG190

How do you print duplex on a HP Laser Jet 4650n


You have to print the first side then take those prints and put them back into the paper tray to print the second side (Manual Duplex). If this were a DN model it would have built in automatic duplexing and you cound select "duplex printing" from your print setup screen and the printer would print both sides automatically.

My Dell Color Laser Printer 5110 cn won't print. It keeps saying ''Load MPF Letter'' then ''Load MPF Plain'' then ''Load MPF 020-969


it's asking for paper in the manual Paper Feeder (MPF). Somewhere in your settings you have it printing to the MPF. Check the settings in the printer prefrences, the printer itself and the software you're using.
Cheers.

Dell 3100cn Duplex won't feed


I'd suggest it is a sensor issue. Since the error comes up, the printer stops responding - even if everything is okay.
