You may try to clean it with a very soft cloth and SURGICAL SPIRITS (avaiable from chemists) but the fact that the image drum usually is made from a type of glass you wont really make a difference. You may indeed SCRATCH it instead. It should actually be replaced with a new image drum

There is no glass in the imaging drum as stated in the other solution, in fact, your drum instead is made of 4 aluminum cylinders coated with a unique blend of photo conductive chemicals that do not react well to being touched. you can identify these as the green colored cylinders in the back. in the front of the unit there is a black rubber coated roller that also does not react well to being touched. now if you mechanically inclined you can disassemble the unit and clean all of the components, but you will not be able to reset the computer chip, it has to be replaced. save yourself the agrivation and buy a new drum.

Our Dell 5110cn stopped working and the 'diagnostic' said to replace the transfer roller. I had purchased a Dell Imaging Drum and replaced that. I believe it has a transfer roller as part of the Imaging...


Dell sells the drum & transfer roller a kit, but there are 2 different parts to it, the drum & the transfer roller & they do not look the same. Replacing the drum does NOT replace the transfer roller. We've had a 5110cn for 4 years, I've replace both of these parts & the fuser unit several times.

Need to replace transfer roller dell 51110 do no have a new one but i need to print some more pages. Can i reset the printer in any way


The answer will be in the users guide or owners manual. I am assuming that your model is 5110CN You can get that here: Dell Documentation

Look for the section about replacing the drum or transfer roller. There will be a section about resetting the page or drum counter.

Good Luck!

Unable to remove imaging drum - Dell 5110cn Color Printer


When you open the front cover it is possible for the transfer roller assembly to remain latched against the imaging drum assembly, making it impossible to pull out the imaging drum. The drum should lift out very easily. If it doesn't, try closing the imaging drum cover and then the front cover (ie: put everything back the way it was). Then open the front cover again, pressing firmly on the front cover latch. When open, check that the transfer roller assembly stayed with the front cover and swung out of the way of the imaging drum (you may have to swing it yourself. When the front cover has opened properly, the imaging drum's cover will unlatch easily and the drum can be pulled out.

I hope this helps someone! I had to say many bad words before I figured this out. Good thing I had a second 5100cn handy to look at for comparison. - B.Till

Buying and replacing just the transfer roller on a Dell 5110cn


Maybe if you call you can order just the transfer roller. You could try removing it and cleaning the ends (to provide better electrical contact). You could also try wiping the roller itself with a lint free dry cloth - but do so at you own risk and never touch the roller with your fingers!

Toner smearing all over page


The problem with this printer is not the fuser. It is one of the following:

1) Imaging drum. The drum contains 4 imaging drums. One for each color. They are independent of one another on the initial image transfer and only combine after the initial image is developed. This IS a user replaceable consumable and should be tried first. If this does not resolve the problem see #2.

2) It is the magenta photo developer unit. This part is NOT a user replaceable part, and requires quite a bit of work to get to. The photo developer is located in the developer frame assembly, which can be seen behind the imaging drum when it is removed. The top cover, left side cover, HVPS, and all 4 toner feed tubes have to be removed in order to remove the photo developer frame, and after the frame is removed, the photo developer itself has to be removed from the frame and replaced. reverse disasembly to put back together.

Usually the tell tale sign for a leaking developer, other then full sheets of light color, is extream excess toner dust behind the imaging unit.
