Question about Dell 5100cn Laser Printer

Everything prints red

When inserting the replacement red toner cartridge, I removed the seal strip before putting the cartridge in place; now everything prints red. Is there a way to clean the inside of the printer? I have removed the drum and cleaned all the red toner off with a damp paper towel and dried with a tissue; I have also vacuumed out the port the red toner goes into. This helped temporarily, but now is back to printing everything with a red background.

We have over 50 of these printers and a few have had the magenta bleeding problem. On everyone of them the problem was corrected by going to the clean developer function under Maintenence from the Menu and choosing to clean the magenta color. Usually have to run it a couple times but it has always corrected the problem so far.

Actually, we have the 'red' problem occasionly, but so far it has always been related to some dork setting the paper selection to heavy stock, when we correct it to being set to 'paper' the red problem goes away immediately.

I PROMISE that this is the Magenta Toner Developer Assembly that has gone out.  My company has a LOT of the 5100 and 5110s.   We do a Dell Chat suport ticket about 2 times per week on this issue!!!   If  you call the tech out on it...they will admit to it being a "known issue"

Seal tape from toner cartridge tore


prining invoices to letterhead, your laser printer is an integral part of your company's computer system. The device's ink is stored in one or more toner cartridges that are replaceable - a single black cartridge, if you have a laser printer that only prints black, or three color cartridges along with a black cartridge if the laser printer prints both color and black. The cartridges are available at office supply, retail and warehouse stores. Like inkjet cartridges, toner cartridges contain a strip of sealing tape that keeps the powder ink from spilling out until you are ready to install the cartridge.

1Remove the toner cartridge from its packaging, if the cartridge is still in its box, and shake the cartridge from side to side to evenly distribute its toner.

2Hold the cartridge away from your body so ink won't spill onto your clothes or shoes. Grab the cartridge's sealing tape on the side of the cartridge and pull the tape firmly away from the cartridge. The sealing tape contains a plastic end piece for grasping it, usually in a different color than the toner cartridge.

3Continue pulling the sealing tape until it is completely out of the cartridge. Place the cartridge close to your printer or on a surface nearby until you are ready to install it. Dispose of the sealing tape in a trashcan or bag; try not to get any toner present on the tape on your hands or clothing.

How to change toner cartridge TN330


Hello

Once you have the correct Brother Toner for your printer model, power your printer OFF and open the cartridge box.

Next, you need to open the top cover of the printer. You should do this carefully to prevent damage to the interior or exterior of the printer.

Once the printer top cover is removed, you want to extract the empty Brother Toner cartridge from the printer by pulling upward and away from the machine. You should be able to do this without a great amount of force.

After you've taken the Brother Toner cartridge from the printer, you want to prepare the new cartridge for insertion. To do this, you need to remove it from the plastic bag it is contained in. Next, you need to remove the rip strip from the cartridge. The rip strip is attached to a plastic film strip. Removing the rip strip is important because if you don't your printer will only produce blank sheets. Take care when ripping the strip off, as you may get Brother Toner on your clothes which can stain. If you end up spilling toner on yourself you can wash it off with cold water.

Next, you want to place the new cartridge in the printer the same way the old Brother Toner cartridge came out. There will most likely be arrows on the package to guide you in the placement that will help you make sure you're putting it in correctly. Much like removing the used Brother Toner cartridge, it should slide in with minimal force. If it doesn't slide in easily you should make sure that the Brother Toner cartridge is the correct cartridge for your model printer and then make sure that it is aligned correctly.

Once you have the cartridge in the printer properly, put the printer lid back on.

Now you are going to print a few test pages to make sure that everything is working the way it should. If the printouts look good: You are done. Package the old toner cartridge in the box the new toner came in and recycle it. If the printouts look bad: Sometimes cartridges can be defective. If there were problems with your test pages, you may need to try the process again with another toner cartridge.

I wish to replace the black toner cartridge in the Dell 3010cn. How do I gain access to it. There is easy access to the cyan cartridge at the moment


if you want to replace black one only you should follow these steps Install or replace the toner cartridge while the printer is on (if the power is not on, the cartridge carrier does not rotate).

1. After confirming the Insert Yellow Toner(Y) message, open the front door.

2. Hold the tape on the protective cover and pull it forward to remove the cover from each cartridge slot.


NOTE: You need to remove the protective cover only the first time that you install the toner.
NOTE: Dispose of the protective cover after you remove it.
NOTE: The protective cover is attached to each toner cartridge mount.

3. Make sure the color of the toner cartridge matches the slot on the toner cartridge carrier. The order is Y, M, C, K. Gently shake the cartridge to distribute the toner evenly.

4. Lift the tab up 90 degrees and pull the toner seal straight off, keeping it parallel with the toner cartridge.

5. To insert the toner cartridges, align the arrows on the cartridge with the corresponding arrows on the printer. Guide the cartridge in until it snaps into place and then push down the handhold to lock the cartridge in place.

6. Close the front door.


NOTE: Make sure the toner cartridge is installed correctly. Otherwise, the front door cannot close firmly.

7. The toner cartridge carrier rotates to the next empty slot. When the color of the newly inserted cartridge appears on the display, followed by the Insert message, insert the next toner cartridge.

8. Repeat steps 1 through 7 when inserting the remaining cartridges.

The scree reads change drum soon. what does it mean


The drum is the part of the unit that actually does the transfer of the toner onto the paper. Each toner cartridge does about 2,000 pages and the drum needs to be replaced with the ~6th toner cartridge change (varies with use). Order part DR-250 from Brother or any office supply place that would carry the part.

To replace (wait until print quality decreases or it reads change drum now and stops working). Turn off the unit and let it cool. Close the document tray and the extension and open the top cover. Remove the drum carefully and place it where the toner will not spill. Remove the toner cartridge (if it is still good) and set it aside to put in the new drum.
Wrap the old cartridge up and dispose of properly (not in the domestic trash). Keep the new drum out of the light (keep it sealed until needed) as much as possible. Insert the toner cartridge in the new drum. Then insert the unit into the Fax machine. (Hold by the handles) Close the top cover and the starter sheet should be ejected by the machine.

I hope this helps.

How do i change the print cartridge?


Replacing the print cartridge
  1. Open the print cartridge door, and remove the old print cartridge. CAUTION: To prevent damage to the print cartridge, minimize its exposure to direct light by covering it with a sheet of paper. Figure 1: Removing the print cartridge c01174123.jpg
  2. Remove the new print cartridge from the packaging. CAUTION: To prevent damage to the print cartridge, hold the print cartridge at each end.
  3. Pull the tab until all the tape is removed from the cartridge. Put the tab in the print cartridge box to return for recycling. Figure 2: Removing the sealing tape c01211568.jpg
  4. Gently rock the toner cartridge from front to back to distribute the toner evenly inside the cartridge. Figure 3: Shaking the print cartridge c01211569.jpg
  5. Insert the print cartridge in the device and close the print cartridge door. Figure 4: Inserting the print cartridge c01174125.jpg CAUTION: If toner gets on your clothing, wipe it off with a dry cloth and wash the clothing in cold water. Hot water sets toner into the fabric.

NOTE: When toner is low, faded or light areas appear on the printed page. You might be able to temporarily improve print quality by redistributing the toner. To redistribute the toner, remove the cartridge from the device and gently rock it from front to back.

My hp color laser jet2605dn has a brand new magenta ink cartridge yet does not print the red in pictures on my brochures


One solution is to make sure you have removed the orange plastic strip from the toner. The cartridges are sealed with a plastic strip when shipped and it needs to be removed from the toner side before installing.

Samsung ML-2510 Red light on & won't print.


This may be a help. I had a similar problem with an ML-2850 which fresh out of the box refused to print, not even a test page, green light followed by red and the smart panel showed that the printer thought that there was no toner in it.
After struggling with it for an hour I hit upon the following.
Turn off the printer.
Take out the toner cartridge.
In the hole where the toner came from there's a gear on the left hand side which is sort of diagonal mesh to match the underside of the toner cartridge. Rock it back and forth a bit and then stick the cartridge back in.
My guess is, if you're unlucky when you install a new cartridge you could have a situation where the gear is in exactly the wrong position, tooth to tooth with the underside of the toner so this gear doesn't mesh properly, the cartridge doesn't seat properly, which then shows the printer as having no toner in it. Waggling the gear just changes the position slightly and then voila. A bit like rocking a car back and forth in gear to free a stuck starter motor.
