Hi, I need to replace a Dell 3000CN/3100CN Cyan Developer Housing. This part, which I have, communicates with the cyan toner cartridge. I'm looking for step-by-step instructions on how to do this. Any suggestions?

    Maybe I repeat myself, but somebody out there thought the problem was how to replace the cyan cartridge. The problem isn't the cartridge. The problem is how to replace the housing for the cartridge. This housing sits in the carousel and it's what the cartidge fits into. Again, I have a replacement housing. Now I need to know how to swap the old one out.

  • ryo Feb 25, 2009

    Printer is out of warranty. I need to know how to swap out the old housing.

  • ryo Feb 25, 2009

    I keep getting suggestions on how to replace the toner cartridge. I need to replace the cartridge housing. It's a separate part (P4870). It has a metal roller with cyan on it.

  • ryo Feb 27, 2009

    Regarding the suggestion below: I think it's on the right track but it doesn't give enough detail on how to proceed. For example, do I have to take off the printer's plastic housing first? What is the "outer casing"?

    Does anyone have a schematic illustrating how to make this part replacement? Or at least enough detail to get going on it?

    You will have to disassemble the outer casing near the roller and carousel. Once you have done that there should be a latch and two screws on the side you will need to lift the latch and unscrew the screws to remove the toner and reverse to install it.

    Need schematics and/or directions on how to replace a developer housing on a Dell 3100cn color laser printer.

  • ryo Feb 28, 2009

    Thanks for trying, Farcry1010. But the part you have pictures of isn't a developer housing. The housing part is about the same size as the toner cartridge, and the cartridge fits partially into it.

    Does anybody out there have directions and/or schematics on how to replace a developer housing on the Dell 3100cn color laser printer?

  • ryo Mar 01, 2009

    The owner's manual doesn't contain this information.

  • ryo Mar 01, 2009

    I don't need to replace a toner cartridge. I need to replace a DEVELOPER HOUSING.

  • ryo Mar 03, 2009

    Dell will not part with a 3100cn service manual unless you sign up as a DCSE tech. Anybopdy out there have access to a copy of the service manual or at least the section having to do with replacing Developer Housings?

  • Chuck Mar 01, 2009

    i dont know if that helped or not but maybe just buying the Dell cartridge is worth it. It may be a few bucks more but there is no hassle with changing housings. Now you can get 3 $ back fro Staples with any ink or toner cartridge. maybe that link helped maybe it didnt. But i was reading up on this and if you do aftermarket toners like this they say you might have to replace that chip i dont know if the company you bought it from told you this. here is what others are saying with your model

    http://www.uninetimaging.com/newsletter/...

    this includes chip replacement which some say you need to do with aftermarket toners. just read my comments i believe i helped you somewhat now. Sorry for the first solution i wasnt sure what you wanted to do.

You should replace all toner at once, or to replace just cyan wait for the carousel getting to the right toner.

An alternative solution is pulling all toners out, and then inserting all cartridges with the new cyan.

Laser printer makes light clicking noise when idle


When idle is potentially the fuser unit, after heating and cooling. However the print quality issue associated with the clicking sound could indicate an electrical issue. The HVPS maybe faulty causing the print quality issue (due to dependant parts) and the electrical click. In any case I would recommend calling Brother and finding the nearest authorised service agent.

Printer won't recognize cartridge


I had the same problem. I'm not sure but I think I replaced the cartridges when the printer was on because I turned the printer off and removed one of the cartridges. When I turned the printer back on it recognized that cartridge but not the others. I turned the printer off again, rmoved all cartiridges and put them back in when the printer was still off. When I turned the printer on again I had no problems. So...try turning off the printer, rmove all cartridges, then put them back in and restart printer. Hope this works for you .
