Where are you located? I just searched eBay, and there's toner, drums, whole printers (working and non-working), all available for immediate shipping. I realize eBay isn't the first choice for business needs, but if you're desparate, you might get something much faster this way. I have 2 of these printers and I know how hard it is to get parts and service.

This sounds like it might be a Drum issue try reseatting the drum. If that does not fix it then you will need to buy a new drum. It could also be a toner cartridge causing the issue but highly unlikely.

Best of luck...

Replace toner message still displaying


Have you already tried powering the printer off/on to see if this would clear the error? If so, are you using a Dell branded toner? If not, this could be why the printer has not recognized the replacement. It could be you recieved a bum toner cartidge, although this does not happen often, it can still happen. If you take your old toner cartridge and put it back in the printer, does it recognize it? If so, perhaps it is the toner cartridge.

If it is a bum Dell toner cartridge, Dell carries a seperate warranty on toner, apart from the warranty on the printer. Call Dell laser printer tech support. They will need your order number for the toner and have the cartridge handy as they will need an identification number off of the cartridge.

Removing toner cartridge


When the toners go in, they are locked down using the colored part of the cartridge. This holds them in place for printing. However, sometimes even when unlocked they can be very difficult to remove.

After you are sure it is unlocked, do your best to wiggle the cartridge until it start to feel like it is coming loose, and you should be able to pull it out. Do not under any circumstances force it out, just take some time to loosten it up.

Dell 3100 CN replace drum cartridge


No. There is no reset as there is with some units. This unit actually knows via a smart chip in the drum unit if it has reached EOL ( end of life ).
