Question about Dell 5100cn Laser Printer
Printer was making noise and vibrating under the black toner cartridge. Sounded like some gears not meshing correctly? By the time I got a new cartridge, the noise and vibration had stopped and printer was printing in light gray (colors seem OK). I wasn't using printer when grinding noise stopped or when started to print in gray so don't know if there is a cause and effect. I've reinstalled printer; downloaded new drivers. Dell Dimension 8200 and Windows XP Home. Can anyone help?
I just used a strong vaccum cleaner on the phd. Remove it from the front, turning the 4 locks. and clean with the vacum cleaner at the entrance of the 4 colours. strongly on the dark one to ensure the acces is free and now it works again without any pb.

There are a few possible causes for the light print.
The first is the easiest to try and least expensive.
If you actually had a bad toner cartridge, and the toner was not making its way down the toner tube to the developer, then you may be able to fix the issue by simply doing a developer cleaning on the black developer. What this actually does is force aggitator to move toner down the tube into the developer. You can activate this from the maintenance menu.
If this does not fix the issue, then more then likely the black developer unit itself is defective and needs to be replaced.
