Hi, My Dell 3100CN printer is displaying "Change Black Toner." I have replaced the toner cartridge. The printer begins to calibrate for a very long time. When it finally finished calibrating, it return to the error "Change Black Toner." Can you help me with this?

There is a chip in each toner cartridge which tells the main machine something about how full it is. It may be that it tells it how full it is, or it may be that it tells it how many pages it has done. It sounds as if the new black cartridge has a duff chip, and is telling the main machine that it is empty. To test this, you can overide the message. 1. press on the menu button;
2. select configure;
3. select maintenance;
4. select non-dell toner;
5. set the value to on.
If that does't work, get back to me.

Dell 3100n keeps saying "Change Black Toner" even


Before installing a new toner, put a disposable towel over the ink toner exit, and shake your toner lightly back and forth and up and down. Make sure your toner cartridge is in the open position before replacing it in your printer.

If you are using a refillable ink cartridge, make sure you are resetting the cartridge using the method described by the refillable manufacturer.

If this does not answer your question please request more information before voting on my answer. I will try to find more information about your toner cartridge that will help you futher.

Dell 3100cn laser printer poor print quality


It sounds like you've got contamination on the drum cartridge or on one of the toner cartridges.

I'm actually going to be installing black toner in my 3100cn in about 8 hours, so I'll inspect and clean each of the carts, and write up the process for you tonight.

WILL NOT CALIBRATE,KEEPS ATTEMPTING TO CALIBRATE.


This is commonly caused by faulty toner cartidges or OPC drums.

If there is a fualty color cartridge the device will try to recalibrate over and over....

Isolate the faulty toner cartridge and replace it.
I have seen this as a common problem with some poor quality refilled cartridges

I AM CHANGING THE BLACK TONER CARTRIDGE ON A DELL 3100CN WITH THE ORIGINAL DELL TONER CARTRIDGE AND I GET AN "ID ERROR" MESSAGE


Either the "toner cartridge sensor" N4445 isn't reading the chip in the toner,

or an MCU board P5281 or EEPROM is defective
