If drum no problem, then probably need to align the drawer alignment.

Hi there

send a print / copy through the machine stop the machine via the main switch before toe paper has come out remove the drum unit
you should now be able to see part of your print on the drum if you can also see the black line check for obstructions in the light path if these seem fine the chances are the dev or cleaner blade seals have spung a leak ( time to replace the drum cartridge

Toner blotched on printed material When printing

If the line has a 1/8" white margin on either side, clean your glass and mirrors.

If the line is all the way across your page, consult your users manual for cleaning the sawtooth electrode (open the front door and take out your waste tank, there is a green rod on each drum cartridge you can pull and hear a zipping noise) and cleaning the laser lens (there should be a cleaning wand under your waste tank, turn pad side down and insert in the gap underneath your drum cartridge)

EGR valve needs to be replaced how do I replace it or how can I clean it out?

Well if your going thru the trouble to remove it. It's a real toss up I know the part is expensive. If all it needs is to be cleaned then clean it, if it doesn't hold vacuum or open when it's needed then replace it. As far as the actual proceedure, the egr is always located in an nearly inaccessible location on the engine. So you get frustrated and take it to a mechanic and he gets frustrated but then he's getting paid. It has 2 or 3 bolts and a vacuum line, either metal line or vacuum hose. After removal if it's clogged it will look black inside gummy sticky clean it with carb cleaner, don't spray it soak it to remove the mess it's not very big inside, it has a plunger, a rod and a small chamber, after cleaning apply vacuum to it to make sure the plunger opens and closes ( it will move) There is no lube for this part exhaust gases pass thru it hence the name Exhaust Gas Recirculation, Hope it helps

I have a black line going down the right side of my page on my Dell 3100cn Laser Printer. I read to clean the window with a soft cloth and mild window cleaner. Where is the window I'm supposed to clean?...

Usually lines going down pages is linked to the imaging drum having built up toner on it. I would open the front cover and pull out the drum and see if you have lines going down the drum. If so clean those off using the soft cloth. Reinsert. If it still happens check the toner carts for leaking. Also you may need a new imaging drum if problem still occurs.

Our Dell 3100CN printer blocks out a 1/2" wide line (all colors) print area on the right side. We replaced the printer drum unit and that didn't fix the problem. It was printing fine until we replaced the...

Try the cleaning rod. visit:
for images (under replacing the "cleaning rod pad") for where to find the cleaning rod. You likely don't need to replace the pad, just use the rod (pull out and push in 10X) and try to print again.

Black/grey alignment lines on copies

straight away the cartrides need to be cleaned and the ink holders need to be cleand.
same with a carriage rod.
take a cotton swab dip it in water and then clean the above parts.
also connect the printer directly to the wall jack witout the surge protector.

now check if you get the same error on the alignment page

1/4 black line going down back of paper when I print

The black line going down the back is from toner coming off of the cartridge

open the printer (I am assuming it is **** shell design remove the developer/toner section

open the plastic shutter that goes all teh way across the drum area and inspect you may find a piece of paper in there or there is suppose to be a wiper assembly that may be bad

while you have the machine open clean the charger wires( they pull out on a rod and clean with a pencil erasure

also inspect the fuser rollers(be careful they are hot to make sure no toner has built up on them if so let the macne cool and clean with silicone lubricant do not scrae with any sharp object
