Question about Dell 810 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Cartridge banging on the right & left walls

I tried to make a copy of a document (without switching on the PC). Forgetting which one is the right button to hit, I must have hit both scan and copy buttons one after the other. After some seconds, the printer made some banging noise and I notice a plastic band (about 0.4 mm thick, 8 mm height and a few centimeters short of printer's length): It has a hole at both ends.

The banging continues every time I switch on the printer. Appreciate some help to solve the problem.

    Lets say I am facing the 810 printer with the DELL emblem on top of it appears as DELL to my eyes; If I lift it up and can now see the print cartridge, the thin plastic strip should (a) hang or (b) placed horizontally, at a place nearer or further than the print cartridge (to my eyes). Any hints as to where I should "put it back".

    Thanks,

There is a thin plastic strip that has small lines on it that stretches across the inside of the printer and fits trough the back of the print head. It is not in the slot of the print head or missing. I fixed my banging Dell 810 printer by putting it back in. I had no idea what it was at first. That's all I can tell ya.

Are you using Dell Series 5 ink cartridges?

Unplug the printer from the wall. Now remove the power brick from the back of the printer for 60 seconds. Plug everything back in. This will reset any error messages the printer has.

Power on the printer. Open the printer and take out the Dell Series 5 Black cartridge. make sure all the tape is off the cartridge and put the cartridge back in. Now do the same for the Dell Series 5 color cartridge.

Close the printer. It should print an alignment page. Any error messages?

Black cartridge = black side(left side) color cartridge = color side(right side)

Photo cartridge = black side(left side) color cartridge = color side(right side)

Dell Series 5 ink cartridges have a sensor in them that cannot be reset. Article on refilling Dell ink cartridges.

Dell Series 5 ink cartridges can be purchased at Staples, Walmart or Dell's Website.

If these ink cartridges are new, then take them to the place of purchase for a refund or replacements. If they're old, then try purchasing a new Dell Series 5 ink cartridge.

My printer is printing blank pages. The test print prints all the colors though. But when I print a document all I get is a blank page. I just installed a new color cartridge.


Mostly, printer cartridge error occurs when the printer head is unable to identify the cartridge properly. And the basic reason behind this is that the cartridge is improperly attached. To reattach the cartridge, turn on the lid of the printer and then remove the cartridge from the printer head. Check the cartridge to make sure that there are no scratches or other damaged parts that can contribute to a printer cartridge error report. Take note that the cartridge should not be left open for more than 30 minutes; otherwise the ink will start to dry up and the cartridge will get clogged.

MY IMAGECLASS 6530 DOES NOT MAKE A COPY IT SENDS OUT A PLAIN PAPER


If you had just changed the cartridge it my not be making contact with the drive that turns the drum. Some people pound on the back side while running a copy to get it to engage. This may take several times before it clicks into place. Take the cartridge out and close the door part way and you will notice that a white triagular shape drive arm will come out to engage the triangular shaped black driven unit that turns the drum. These two parts must mesh before the drum will turn and then you will get a copy. Once you get these two parts in the right place you will run fine until you pull the drum/cartridge unit out again.

Canon PC-D320 prints only left half o document with closed cover


I had the same problem but it was caused by the scanner that was not running flash under the copier glass,if I remember correctly there are spacers on the scanner that keep the scanner to run exactly the same distance from the glass of both sides of the scanner.
On the other machine,I found a faulty scanner cable that cause a similar problem.

Have you been using ink cartridges other than store bought? Reason I'm asking is that i used a refill kit, and tried those half price refill places, only to find ink was leaking out when not in use & clogged up the ends where the cartridge moves across. take a flashlight & look at the ends of the track that the cartridges slide across on, you may see a build up of ink, that won't allow the cartridge to travel as far as it needs to go to run properly.

When I put an original on the glass to copy, copies come out blank but cartridge has not run out


Sounds like the issue is with the scanner bulb. May not be moving across or warming up to full capacity and therefore it is not taking an accurate picture.

Make sure the scanner is plugged in directly to the wall and not into a surge protector or a power strip. Do you have the same issue when scanning?

If it happens when you scan and it is plugged into the wall and you are in warranty you will need to replace the unit. If OOW then you should call and see if you can repair or upgrade the unit at a discounted price. If you want to speak to someone in English tell them you want mac support - they are in Canada.

Try this: make a copy from the table and then one from the document feeder. compare the two. If the copy from the table looks good and the document feeder one is bad then clean the glass on the document feeder. If both are bad remove the top glass and clean the mirrors using rubbing alcohol and a lint free cloth. you can also clean the wheels on the feeder and in the tray with rubbing alcohol if you ever have feeding problems
Hope this helps
