Replace Transfer Roller

If the printer still says to replace transfer roller even after it's replaced, then remove transfer roller and manually turn the gears on the transfer roller a few times. It must get stuck or something. Then replace the transfer roller and it should work.

This can be any of rthe following depending on the position iof the lines on the page. You need to establishe the position of the lines relative to the top of each page and this determines which of the following component will cause the problem

Dirty or damaged developer roller.
Dirty or damaged charging roller.
Dirty or damaged cleaning roller.
Dirty or damaged developer DSD wheels. These wheels are located on the outer ends of the color toner cartridge and appear as a black bushing.
Dirty or damaged transfer roller.
Dirty or damaged transfer drum.

All of them need inspecting and cleaning

Replace Transfer Roller Error Message Will Not Reset After Replac

The transfer roller on this machine comes as an assembly consisting of a waste toner tank and a transfer roller. The message you are getting pops up when this tank is full, regardless of the transfer roller's useable life. There is a window on the back that when blocked by toner, cuts off an optical sensor to tell the machine that the waste toner is full. Just unclip the roller from the side, pop it out, and dump the toner out. Careful though, it's a messy job and you might want to wrap the assembly inside a trash bag while emptying it out.

5100cn - verticle line omitted on magenta test page

sound like the drum could be the problem have you replaced that? if the fuser was the problem it would have the toner but would not have been fused or had marks on the page. this would be my best on this issue

Magenta colour comes through on all prints right across the page, it is faded but is still clearly there. I can temporarily fix problem by using the printer menu to clean the magenta developer, but it...

We have over 50 of these printers and a few have had the magenta bleeding problem. On everyone of them the problem was corrected by going to the clean developer function under Maintenence from the Menu and choosing to clean the magenta color. Usually have to run it a couple times but it has always corrected the problem so far.
