On a dell 3110cn printer, after attempting to install an ink cartridge the inner rotor moved to the next position before I had the chance to lock the cartridge in place. How do I cycle the cartridge manually back to the place where I can lock the cartridge and let the printer work again?

Re: Installing a black toner cartridge
Dont ever try to move the rotor manually it will completely get cracked.many of my regular customers do the same thing and the gears gets cracked.the cost of that assembly is $70 plus shipping.
so be care full.just this thing.unplug the printer completely from power outlet directly.wait for 10 minutes then replug it and on the printer.then no problem.if the black toner is not coming in the position.press the button to remove the other toners 1 by 1 which are still in.they will come in the position where you can remove the toner.the black will come in the position very last after all other toners removed.
if still the black toner not inn position.get the help of local tech the printer needs to be opened and there is gear in the printer on the base can be easily seen after oopening the printer.spinning that gear manually will make all the positions perfect.

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.

Have you pulled out the imaging drum and transfer roller to see if they are caked in Magenta toner? if so they will need to be cleaned off. Would also suggest blowing out the area around the drum to rid of loose toner in that area.
Is this an original DEll toner, or a remanufactured one?
Sometimes a remanufactured cartridge can need a few pages printed before the new toner 'works ' through the internal mechanisms. Not all remaufacturers actually test (all) of their cartridges. The better ones test 100%, to ensure a quality product.
It could be that the wrong toner has been used in the cartridge (not all toner is the same - by a long way).
It could be that the drum has NOT been replaced. These can be light damaged and result in a poor print quality. An original drum is purple in colour. Aftermarket drums are blue/green.
This could be a drum problem, the drum is part of the toner cartridge in this printer.
If the toner has leaked it will be all over the inside of the printer - you'll see it. I don't think that's the problem.
If the toner cartridge is an original Dell item, then it's likely to be replacable under warranty.
If the cartridge is a remanufactured item, it may be that the wrong toner has been used. Toner is NOT all the same, and this cartridge is one whe the wrong toner really will not work properly for long.
The chances are the changing the toner cartidge will cure the problem, provided you use an original Dell item, or a remanufactured item from a reputable manufacturer.
