Question about Dell 3010cn Laser Printer

Dell 3010cn paper jam 075-134 cannot get rid of error

I have two Dell 3010cn printers that were given to me. Both have the same problem. The paper does not pick from the built in MPF paper tray. What I don't understand is that it's not even trying to pick. Nothing is moving in the MPF tray and picking mechanism for either printer. Then the printer reports at paper jam error 075-134. I think it has to be something I don't have set right. It doesn't make sense that both printers are failing in the exact same way.

    Exact same problem as described above.

    I have the same problem. We tried to have it fixed and Dell said it was almost impossible and of course said it was better to buy a newer version.

The reason Dell said this problem was almost impossible to fix is because it is. There is a lift mechanism inside the housing for the MPF paper tray that lifts the paper to the roller to pull off the top sheet. The lift mechanism in this printer model is flimsy at best. There is a roller cam with a knuckle attached to it to does eventually break, causing a failure of the lift mechanism. The components to repair this problem are unavailable from Dell, and can only be salvaged from another printer. Here's the kicker... You have to disassemble the ENTIRE printer in order to replace this assembly. This took me 2 and a half hours to accomplish, and you're going to have to do it on 2 printers, as well as reassemble the fixed one. DO grease the cam assembly with some white grease to get the longest life possible if you choose this option. Best option? Either purchase another printer off eBay with a different problem and use yours to fix that one, or, as Dell so lovingly suggested, purchase a new one. The cost of today's color laser solutions make purchasing one of these printers a much more viable option than fixing your 3010cn.

Try, firstly, to check the settings on all 3 of the printer itself, the printer driver in control panel, and in the software program (ie - Word) to ensure it's printing "letter" paper from the MPF (not tray 1).

Also, if you could, try print out a systems settings page from the reports menu on the printer itself. Does that print on either printer?

We have a fellowes shredder. It got full and jammed. After cleaning and emptying it will not turn on. Is there a reset button? Thanks. Betn

We've found that when the container is overfilled with shredded paper, it will begin pulling shredded paper back into the cutters and jamming the machine. Sometimes reversing the machine will spit the paper back up, but if it is thoroughly jammed, only way to unjam it is to UNPLUG it first, then manually remove the paper from the cutters. Then, be sure to dump the container BEFORE it is filled with paper.

My Dell 3115cn printer will not connect to the network (it still works on USB cable), hard to believe it's broken, so can the printer system be reset?

Try turning off the printer and disconnecting power plug from wall. Hold power on button for about a minute. Then replug unit and turn power on - it should then attempt to hook up to your existing network.

If no go, try reinstalling the software that initially came with printer and was used to set up the network

Why does canon MP258 printer with scanner can't scan japanese yen paper bill amount 10,000. I tried it over 10 times but it stops,. And when i tried US paper bill, it works well. I need some explanation...

When you scan with any scanner it utilised the software with "Optical Character Recognition functions, usually abbreviated to OCR -> OCR is a field of research in pattern recognition, artificial intelligence and computer vision." to scan and record the scanned object, sometimes it does not or cannot recognise certain symbols or characters because of man made software & hardware have its limitations too.

Hope it helps.

Paper jams consistely and then continues to feed, even if only printing one page

check your paper size setting on your print menu. i had this problem when i set the paper size smaller than the printer is able to handle (3x5 card) ... i just switched to 4x6 and don't have any problems.
