Question about Dell 3100cn Laser Printer

Linux printing with Dell 3100CN

The goal I set out is to be able to print over the network from my Debian Etch laptop to a Dell 3100CN printer. The first part was just figuring out how to set the printer to have a static IP address. The second part was installing the driver an clientside configuration. The whole process can be found @ http://digitalcartel.blogspot.com/2007/04/linux-printing-with-dell-3100-cn.html. I hope it helps someone. :)

Dell 3100cn (color printer): color smudging


Smuding typically occurs when you print on a heavier paper without changing the settings. By changing the settings to a thick paper type, the page will be send through the printer more slowly. this will likely eliminate the smudging.

Cheers.

My Dell 3100cn will not print unless I press Init NVRAM and restart printer every time I want to print. This is annoying. Can you help? Thanks! Greg


this implies that you need to restart the printer again. However, do check to see if toner cartridges are seated in the proper position. Also ensure that they have been locked in. This is an error commonly associated with the Dell 3100cn laser printer.

Envelope printing


Got a 3100CN and had the same problem but found that a) Changing paper size from the web doesn't work but b) Go to the printer control panel on the printer and use the menu to set the paper size for the MPF tray for FREE. Now your application under windows will overide the whatever the printer thinks and will print. Envelope via Word all work without problem. Suggestion . Configure two printers one B&W using tray one and one colour using MPF and you can now quickly select whether to use colour or b&w. Regards John N - N2UYI/G7LTQ
