    My 3100cn seems to be printing horizontal lines at equal intervals on every document that comes out of the printer. There's about 4 lines per page, and it's driving my clients mad!!-SB

This has to do with the document printing properties. When you are ready to print a document, choose properties and make sure you go through the printer settings under that software.
The test page only verifies the cartridges. The printer properties of the software control the printer during printing.

1/2" white line appearing down right side of page


Try replacing the toner cartridge. This seems to be a problem with the photo-sensitive drum, which is located in the cartridge.

Hello My printer(3100 cn dell) every time I


Hi,

This means that loose toner powder has gotten in the way of the lazer "eye". If you open up the front door, you will see a blue tab toward the right, pull that toward you, then look on the right side of the printer, you will see that a door has opened. Pull that blue stick out as far as you can and you will see some toner powder on that, clear it off, and make sure the little pad is clean. After you have cleared the powder off, slide it back in and out a few times, this will clean the eye. Run another document through, if the line is still there, just clean another time. Should go away. I have this problem alot.

There is a known issue for these printers to "streak." If under warranty, call Dell. If not, there is a fix
for the defective drum unit design but requires a little technical expertise.

The procedure is explained here:

Horizontal Striping Problem on a Dell 5100cn


As you have just replaced the drum you may have a faulty drum unit put old one back in a test if lines go way then return drum to store and get a replacement. If they do not go the check the toners and the fuser unit.
