Question about Dell 5100cn Laser Printer
My printer is making a loud almost grinding noise when it prints and very light, unreadable print comes out on the paper. It almost sounds like it is trying to get some toner from cartridges. They are all near full. I just replaced the Image Drum and that didn't fix it. Dell won't help me since I bought the printer on ebay. I have searched for a repair/service manual and can't find one. That would help alot! I have searched the internet and Dell's site for this problem and can't find anything. Thank you for any help anybody can give me!
I am having this same problem, how did you fix your printer?

Try cleaning the developer. This option is located in the web interface for the dell 5100 under printer settings and maintenance tabs. There are 4 options: one for black, and then the other 3 for the 3 colors. Also, you could check to see if your transfer roller is installed correctly. We had one clunking and turned out the gears had worn down. Good luck.

It sounds like you need a new electron or electrode I forget exactly what they call it, this negatively charges the paper as it passes over the positively charged toner drum allowing toner too stick to the paper where required, the lower the negative charge is the less toner that can positively stick to the paper, creating a light black or grey print. This generally occurs with age but should not be too hard to replace by yourself, just expensive.
