There are rollers that cling on to the paper and move it through the machine. When the rollers are worn down they do not grip the paper. For a short fix you can get something rough like sandpaper, brillo pad, etc, and gently scratch the rollers to give them some traction. This will temporarily solve your problem until you can get the rollers replaced.

How can reset all setting dell 3115 cn


"Here is what I did to reset the Dell 3115cn Laser Printer. In the users manual for the 3115cn in section 6 "Changing System Settings" "Resetting Defaults" refers to page 64 where it says, " For more information, see "Reset Defaults" in the User's Guide. Only I did not get a User Guide with my Dell. So I Googled "3115cn user guide" and downloaded it to my desktop and then went to Resetting Defaults. In the attachment "Initializing NVRAM for Network Settings" is what I did. Hope this helps someone else."

My Dell 3115cn MFP prints 3 blank pages between prints or copies if I print more than 1 copy how do I fix this? What is causing it?


I will do first a full printer cleaning, that mean take off all dust and anything can that can be inside the printer (ex.bugs and dirt accumulation).
Second try to locate the printer rollers and check if they are in good condition.Printer rollers need to be in good condition because those are the parts that move the paper inside the printer.
Also when you feed the papers into the feeder make sure you air the paper so they don,t stick together.

ADF on model 3050 is jammed, how do you unjam it?


Hello,

Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) jams are usually caused by a worn separation pad. This small parts keeps the printer from pulling more than one page thru the feeder. When the pad gets worn the pages slip and the printer gets several pages at one time and this is where the jam comes from. The parts you need is HP RM1-0890 it is available on the web at places such as here: http://www.ccl-la.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=24_41_52&products_id=139

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

3115cn Dell laser Printer


I've had this happen a few times. Each time all it has taken is to clean the ADF scanner glass, located on the far left side, using a lint-free cloth and a glass cleaner. I know it might seem odd because it works fine with black and white copies, however this has always done the trick. I'm surprised this is not listed on Dell's support pages. Hope this helps.

Erratic operation thru top copy/fax function


I don't really want to get into this, but you sound desparate. i don't work on your model very often, so bear with me. When a sheet jams, don't just pull it out. Open the document feeder as far as you can and note where it stopped (the side tha DID NOT feed). Look for a possible obstruction or even spot of something that looks dirty or sticky. If so, remove or clean it. Look at the leading edge of the jammed sheet, see if there are any indentations that could possibly line up with a sensor flag, roller edge, etc. Last suggestion. Press down of the side of the document feeder that DID NOT feed through. If this helps, then there is a problem with the latch that holds the document feeder closed. Without seeing the unit it is difficult to diagnose correctly. Let me know one way or the other. Any observations will be helpful. Ed One more thing! Make sure the leading edges of the pages you are sending are perfectly straight and smooth. Make sure that they HAVE NOT been stapled at one time (the indentation can cause a problem)
