Question about Dell 3000cn Color Laser Printer
My DELL 3000cn laser printer is no longer printing completely. There is a strip on the right-hand side of every page that is left blank. It's been going on for a week or two. There is a new black toner cartridge in it. The yellow is low, but the rest are fine. A fella at work said it needs a new drum, but I hate to go to that expense if it's not the answer. Any thoughts? Thanks.
Switch off the printer then switch on again whilst holding the UP and DOWN menu scroll buttons simultaneously.
Then you can go to a TEST PRINT area and print off pages of idividual colour.
If the streaks appear on ALL prints its likely to be the laser unit. If the streaks only print on the COLOUR sheets ( not BLACK) then the problem lies with the drum or the transfer belt.
Remove the drum and turn it manually with the gog at the side and give it a clean with a soft LINT FREE cloth, do the same for the transfer belt and then you may have to run a few test prints to get it all reprimed but you should be OK.

I have the same problem. Test out all the suggestion above. It did not help. I went thru the diagnosis test for all colour. The streak happens on all colour. It mentioned it would have been problem on the laser unit. Does it mean that it is no way to correct this without big expense like purchasing a new one?

I had the same problem and pulled out out the cleaning rod like was suggested on this site and it had some red toner on it so I wiped it off and now it works fine. Maybe try rubbing the rod with a dry cloth, might be something on it that can't be seen.
