Changed image drum, now no toner left?

We have one of these in our workplace and just had to change the Yellow Image Drum. I took out the old one with the toner (which I checked to be at 22%), put the new image drum in and then transferred the toner cartridge into the new drum, closed the lid and started it up. Now it is saying that there is no Yellow Toner left. I'm not really sure what has happened, there wasn't a lot of toner powder spilt, surely not enough to amount to 22%. Any way I can fix this or will I have to order in a new cartridge? I've tried taking it out and putting it in again about 3 times.

It could be the transfer roller. If you have an old one you can test it with that one.

firstly check whether the problem is internal or external-
Have the printer print out the config page- if you can see the image then the issue is external to the printer- check your PC settings
If you cant see an image-
You say you have allready changed the toner unit, was this before the fault or after?
under where the drum/toner cartridge sits there should be a Black 'transfer' roller that will line up with the drum surface when inserted- if this is missing or failed then the image cannot be ' transferred' from the drum to the paper. this is just one possibility, if your not sure wheher the transfer roller is working - stop a print half way through- remove the paper and toner unit - slide the drum surface protector to the side and look at the drum surface for a latent reversed image in toner on the surface of the drum, if you can see an image the problem lies with the transfer element, if you cant see an image then it could possibly be the charge chorona/ HVT PWB / Laser unit, main Pca, power supply hope this helps

Biz Hub C250 is dumping too much yellow toner, what are some possible reasons/solutions?

Bad cleaning blade in the drum (Image Unit). Because toner goes in the image in the front not the middle or rear.

Canon D760 print problem - print image

Duplicated images on pages is either the drum, or fusing/setting unit. Since this is an all in one unit, I am assuming the ink/toner cartridge includes the drum. I suggest replacing the fusing/fixing unit. (the hot part of the printer"

Ghost image towards bottom of page. Does this indicate my drum should be changed out?

if its a standard black toner printer your drum will need changing its probably not the photo drum itself but the cleaning wire that is attached to the drum unit is dirty...but there is no way to fix this but to replace the drum module..

If its a color toner it's the same thing the "drum" needs to be changed but in a color toner printer it's actually called a transfer film.
hope this helps,ben

Printed page has a blank stripe through the centre. Have changed toner cartridge and same result. I understood the imaging drum is built in to the toner cartridge. Any suggestions? The printer is quite...

Remove the toner and look in the area above where the drum sits, there is either a glass that needs wiping or a shutter that may not be opening all the way. That opening is where the laser image is sent to the drum. Use a mirror if you can't see the area very well.

Deteriorating image quality

Good Evening Robert,

The setting for non dell toner only controls the fuser temperature, and will not cause you any print quality issues. Toner is actually made up of ink and plastic. The fuser melts the plastic to "fuse" the image to the paper. Dell toner is set to "fuse" at a specific temperature. when you use non Dell toners, the temperature required to fuse may be different, and when set to non dell toner setting, the fuser temperature is raised to the maximum to ensure the other toner fuses properly. The down side to this is that you will wear out the fuser sooner then it should.

As far as the print quality issue you are having, it is most likey caused by the imaging drum.

Regardless of the estimated life for the imaging drum as stated by the printer, this is just an estimate. Many things can and will cause the imaging drum need replacing. ( Just yesterday I replaced a black toner in a 3115 that was less then a month old... genuine Dell... with more then 75% expected usage left because it was defective).

On this printer, each of the 3 colors and the black are all independent of each other with the exception of the imaging drum. Even within the imaging drum, cyan and black are independent of magenta and yellow on the first stage of transfer. When you have deteriorated print quality that effects more then one color, the first step is to replace the imaging drum.

The Primary transfer, secondary transfer, and tertiary transfer of the image are ALL contained within the imaging drum.

The chances of having 3 or 4 bad Developers is very very slim. If your print quality issue was related to only ONE color, then I would say you had a bad developer unit ( the 4 items located behind the imaging drum when removed). These are far more difficult and expensive to change.

The BTR ( bios transfer roller ) is the only other item that "could" effect your print quality, however, based on the symptoms you discribed, I doubt it. Besides, if i am not mistaken, the imaging drum kit comes with a new btr anyway.

Although I am sure you may be disappointed with the fact the drum unit is failing while showing it still has life remaining, the solution to replace it should restore your unit to full operation. The unit is light sensative, and effected by physical age as well as the number of prints it has supplied.

Please evaluate the solution i have provided and, rate the solution appropriately to show your support.
