Question about Dell 3000cn Laser Printer

1 Answer

My Dell 3000cn is printing slowly

It's going at the 'colour' speed even when printing black only. I think this is only since I bought a new laptop with Vista. I cannot 'install' the disc again as it will only automatically recognise equiment using a USB port.

Do the documents have even a little bit of color?

if not, try this. When printing a document, after you press print, select preferences of the printer and at the bottom there is an option for output color. change that to black. Hope that helps

My 3000cn ran out of black and cyan toner, so I


I have fixed this now using advice that I found from other users on this site who had posted similar questions. In case it's useful to any of you, pull open the front cover and operate the small blue lever that you'll find behind it on the right. This opens a secret compartment on the outside of the printer and there you will find the cleaning rod. Pull and push this in and out about 15 times and it should fix any problems like the one I had.

How can I tell how many prints have been done on my dell 3000cn printer


All of the following is done on the Printer, not your computer keyboard.
Press the printer's Menu button. Then press the down arrow until Configure appears. Press return. Press the down arrow until Reports appears. Press Return. Press the down arrow until Printer Settings appears. Press return again. You will now get a report sheet printed which will include the Total number of sheets printed, the total Colour sheets and the total B/W sheets plus other information.

Canon MP360 not printing


You probably need a new purge assembly, it draws some ink to both clean and prime the printhead. When it stops working you won't get any ink to the paper.

Changing Dell 3000cn printer cartridge


The instructions always come with the new cartridges and also are printed on the new cartridges. You move the right hand (colored) side up to unlock. Carefully pull the cartridge up and out (you can screw up the gears if you don't put the cartridges in and out straight. Make sure you've followed the instructions that come with the new toner cartridge (removing tape, shaking), put it in the same way and move the right hand side down to lock.

DELL 3000cn Printing Problems - Black text is very light


It sounds like the font that is being used is too light, not dense enough. Is there a default density or toner save function on this printer? Check the settings from the control panel.

DELL 3000cn Printing Problems


switch off the printer then switch on again whilst holding the UP and DOWN menu scroll buttons simultaneously.

Then you can go to a TEST PRINT area and print off pages of idividual colour.

If the streaks appear on ALL prints its likely to be the laser unit. If the streaks only print on the COLOUR sheets ( not BLACK) then the problem lies with the drum or the transfer belt.

Remove the drum and turn it manually with the gog at the side and give it a clean with a soft LINT FREE cloth, do the same for the transfer belt and then you may have to run a few test prints to get it all reprimed but you should be OK.
