Question about Dell Printers:Dell MFP Color Laser 3115cn

1 Answer

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?

Every time I hit print it prints what I printed followed by 3 blank sheets of paper. I haven't made any changes to it and I don't know why it started doing this. Does anyone know what is causing it or how I can fix 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.

My m4345 mfp sends a blank page after print job. How to fix this?


Does it do this on all jobs? If yes, look for a function either in the general setup of the device or the driver for job separation. Having this function on causes the printer to print a blank page between print jobs to help separate them. This not to be confused with the job separation function of the 3 bin sorter where print, fax and copy jobs come out in different bins.

What would make a printer only when making a copy or scanning put blue on paper? When printing its not there why?


The Dell 3115 (and Xerox 6180 multifunction, and Lexmark X560) all have a common problem with the INSIDE surface of the scanner platen attracting a deposit. This makes it a little 'cloudy' to look at, and produces a bluish tint to colour photocopies.

Print a test page from the printer that includes colours from all four cartridges. Then make 2 photocopies - one using the document feeder, and one using the flatbed. One may be better than the other - as a work-around.

The REAL solution is to clean the inside of the scanner platen (glass), but you must be very careful, otherwise you'll trash the printer. It is a very complex procedure to remove the scanner platen completely. It can (with great care) be lifted from the front, being very careful not to strain the cables. It can be cleaned successfully.

the fault is a mark on the glass over which the paper passes when being copied. it is the rectangular glass that is probably only 1cm wide but the full A4 length across the screen. Clean the mark off this thoroughly and voila, fixed.
