Question about Dell M5200n Laser Printer

1 Answer

Background printing showthrough on paper

Recently, we started geting printing "showthrough" on our printouts. It appears that something printed previously is leaving ink on the rollers or something and is reflected very faintly on new documents printed. I can't find a manual for the 5200 Dell Printer that we have. Anyone know what is causing this and what I can do?

Might be your transfer roller.

If the printer has a lot of use on it, I would recommend a maint/ kit.

It would replace your fuser and rollers. around $190
I would shop around for best prices.

How do I run cleaning option -- won't print


Select something to print. Then go to FILE - PRINT and when the dialogue box appears, click to right of named printer on PROPERTIES. Then when that dialogue box appears, click on the MAINTENANCE tab and you can then click on Head Cleaning. Just make sure there is at least one sheet of A4 office-type paper in the printer, as when the clean has finished, you need to click on Nozzle Check. The printout will show if the nozzles are now working. Never do more than a couple of such cleans and always follow with the Nozzle Check printout - you can turn the paper round to use a fresh part - it only uses a small part of the paper each time.

Got the C5180 from a relative because it didn't work. I tried a new black ink tank, it doesn't print anything in black. Color print looks weak and washed out without black for shadow, and black...


The printed output is fuzzy, blurry, or grainy, or the edges of objects in the images are jagged. Solution Follow these steps until the issue is resolved. Step one: Check your paper
  • Many papers have printing and non-printing sides. Load the paper with the printing side down.
  • Use the correct paper type for the project. For everyday documents, plain paper works well. For documents with dense printing, such as high-contrast graphics or photographs, use HP Advanced paper for the best results.
  • If these steps do not help, try a different paper. Ink might not bleed as easily on heavier paper. Paper that does not accept ink well is also prone to bleeding and smearing. HP designs its inks and papers to work together.
Step two: Check the settings
  1. In the program being used for printing, click File , and then click Print . The Print window opens.
  2. Make sure the appropriate product is selected, and then click Preferences or Properties . The Preferences/Properties window opens.
  3. Click the Printing Shortcuts tab. Consider modifying some or all of the options in the Printing Shortcuts menu to increase print quality.
    • Print quality : If the quality of the printouts is not acceptable, try increasing the print quality. To print more quickly, try decreasing the print quality.
    • Paper type : If one of the options matches the paper type exactly, select it instead of Automatic .
    • Paper size : Make sure that this option matches the paper loaded in the product.
    To see additional options, click the Advanced tab, and then click Advanced Features . The Advanced Features window opens. Consider changing the following option: Ink volume : Adjust the amount of ink that prints on a page. For lighter images (less ink), drag the slider to the left. For darker images (more ink), drag the slider to the right. The lighter the ink volume, the more quickly the printout dries.
Step three: Check image resolution Make sure that the image file has enough resolution for the size of the printed picture. Although many photo applications can enlarge an image or part of an image to any size, eventually the individual pixels become visible and the whole image looks blurry. Here are some general guidelines for image file resolutions:
  • 94 pixels per cm (240 pixels per inch) for images to print on smaller format photo paper, such as 10 x 15 cm (4 x 6 inch)
  • 117 pixels per cm (300 pixels per inch) or higher for larger format photo papers
  • Lower resolutions might produce acceptable images when printed on rough-textured paper
Step four: Align the cartridges If the previous steps have not improved the appearance of the printout, align the cartridges. See the user guide for alignment instructions.

I have a 3800n that the print quality is very poor-meaning the background is gray streaks where the paper should be the only thing you see. Making the paper look dirty. hope that explains things. this...


You can try changing the print density under print quality in the control panel. YOu can also check the reset to factory default and see if this helps. It could need what is called a maintenance kit where the fuser and rollers are replaced. I install these all the time and sounds like this is what you need.

HP 2600 is printing with a grey background. I have done several recalibrations and cleaned it but it does not fix the problem.


same as me, I got reduce this effect printing in normal paper as if i where printing transparency paper. The background is lighter now, but still appears.
The other thing I test, printing a blank page it was that with a glosy photo paper with the gloss side to the back i dont get any background. So i suspect it has to do with the tansfer belt ETB rollers.

Need to change my print size on my C6280 Photosmart All-in-one printer, make it larger


It depends on what you are printing, but generally this needs to be adjusted in the software you are using.
If you print pictures or photos, you have to find an option to scale the printout up, either during printing, or beforehand.
If you print PDF documents, in the Print dialog box there is an option to "fit printer margins" or "auto-adjust to printer size" or something to that effect in every PDF reader application. If however the document is formatted for your paper size it will not be scaled, and if it's formatted for an even bigger sheet size, it will scale down the printout.
If you print documents from Word, there's no easy way to make the printout bigger - you can change the font size to a larger one in the whole text, but chances are, that this will ruin the text formatting.
In Excel there is an option to scale everything by a given percentage, which will automatically tile the table into as many sheets as necessary. and then the area will be printed on as many paper sheets as necessary to get
There's no one solution, unless your printer driver has an option to do a fixed scaling - but this will usually be sensible only for enlarging printouts that occupy a smaller area on paper, and you want them to use the maximum paper area. I'm sorry, but you have to experiment a bit to get the hang of it.
Good luck!

Paper is jamming when I print something


Were you able to remove all of the original jammed business cards? where the leading edge of the "Fanfold" prints occurs, you will probably find something blocking the paper path. HP printers usually have a limit on the paper weight that the printer can handle when doing duplex (2 sided) printing. Check this against the weight of the cards you are printing.

Empty ms word printout


Hi, You can try: 1. go to Start, Printer and Faxes, right click on your 3745, click on Properties, Printing Preference; 2. Check to see if you have any Advanced tab or button; 3. Check if you can set the printer to text only; 4. Check if you can set the printer to use black ink only. 5. In MS Word, verify through the use of Print Preview that your document is as you would want to be printed; 6. In some instances you may have to set manually text color in MS Word. While your document is open, click Ctrl + A to select all, then choose font color to "Black". Alternately, in your MS Word, you can click on "Format", "Font", "Font Color" set to "Black" rather than "Automatic" and set this as the "Default" setting. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
