Question about Dell 3100cn Laser Printer
On my Dell 3100cn you have to replace the drum as routine maintenance. I think it is every 12,000 sheets. If you examine the drum unit (in a 3100cn) you will find that there is a compartment in the unit that gets filled with used toner.. It is fairly small, but runs all the way across the drum unit, at the pointy end. On fhe 3100cn there is a blue arrow on either side of the drum unit to show you which way round to put the drum unit and the arrows are each printed on pastic cover held on by two screws. Undo the screws and you can empty the waste toner directly into a plastic bag.
The drum unit has a chip in it (on one side). That tells the main machine it is full or, may be, it tells the machine when it thinks it should get full. If it is the latter, then the chip won't change its tune and you will continue to get the error mesages.
