Question about Dell 2130cn / 3110cn / 3115cn / 3130cn / 5110cn Color Laser Printers

1 Answer

I am working on a Dell Color Laser 2130cn and it print light on the left side of Form only from left edge of form in around 3" which is realy the right side of the Printer causing Light Print because it is a face down exit delivery Printer. I replaced the PHD and it did improve but still light print. Befor I replaced the PHD I did a half print test which allowed myself to view the Image Drum's and could see on all 4 Image Drums that the Toner was light on all 4 Image Drums. But after replacing the PHD now cannot tell if the Toner is Light on the Image Drums anymore because it has darkened a bit with replacing the PHD but still may be a little light? I was thinking trying a Image Transfer Belt next then the High Voltage Power Supply after that. I do not believe it could be a Laser Unit problem because it is all 4 colors? I cannot seem to find anything on this problem Googling anywhere. Any ideas or should I go my proposed way of trying to resolve this problem?

Ink on left hand side of page very faint

First make sure that the print cartridge has enough toner. If the toner is OK, it is most likely be due to dust/ toner dust accumulation at the laser reflecting mirrors inside the printer, which partially blocks laser beams and results in faint print. Therefore the printer requires cleaning/ servicing by a professional.

Hope it helps! Good Luck!

I have a IBM 9068 Model S01,it is sometimes showing error code 18.If I tilt up the printer assembly during the printer power on it is ok.If I tilt down the printer assembly meaning to it's original...

Error 18 is a "Paper Edge Search Error".

1. Check document for damage and check it meets specs.
2. Check that Ribbon Cartridge is installed correctly.
3. Do "Form-Edge Sensor Service Check"
4. Do "Platen" adjustment.

Sensor Status Display:

. Start Self-Test (press and hold Start 1 on panel: then turn on printer. Keep holding button until at least "00" is displayed.
2. Use a magnet to override cover closed/open sensor to the left of the Start1 button in the indent.
3. Press Reject Off button until "4" is displayed.
4. Press Start1 button to shift to next digit.
5. Press Reject Off to display "4"
6. Display should now read "44"
7. Press Start2 button. The LED display indicates sensor status'
8. You will see changes with inserting paper or removing paper.

Perform sensor status display as stated above. The sensor is located on the print head carriage on the left side.

1. The upper right vertical segment of the left LED digit is assigned to the form-edge sensor for Command "44"
With no paper the LED segment is unlit.
2. Check the sensor by inserting paper. Move the print carrier to the right to access the sensor mounted on the print carrier.
If the LED segment becomes lit when you insert the paper, and becomes unlit when you remove the paper, sensor is OK.
3. If the sensor does not work, check that the sensor cable is connected correctly. If the cable is okay, replace the following one at a time:
a. Form Edge Sensor -46H2648
b. Form Edge Sensor Cable -46H2730
c. Main Card -
1.46H2632 - Serial Interface
2.46H2634 - Parallel Interface

How do you set the printer to print in black only after a color toner is gone. the printer is a dell 2130cn clolr laser

Try going in to your printer properties

Start - Printers and Faxes - RMB on default printer - properties (From drop down menu) - Advanced - Printing Defaults - Check the "Greyscale" box.

Now this the route using XP and a Canon printer, yours will be similar but also may differ slightly.
