Most common cause is a dirty corona wire and or drum. If after cleaning the corona wire and drum the copies are still mostly black and smeared, the drum may be broken.

Clean the machine’s interior and the primary

Printed pages look terrible...


I'm more familiar with HP printers, but it sounds like a fuser is bad. The fuser effects print quality as well. If you've replaced the toner, as you have.

Fax is received is very dark and almost unreadable


You can try using the menu to lighten the fax, but if all received faxes are dark, you may be experiencing a weak scan light. try making a copy instead of fax (which essentially is a fax printed to yourself) if also dark, its certainly your scanning imager that's failing. If that's the case I would recommend replacing the entire machine. Parts are expensive, and its a difficult to service part yourself. Also you may find that toner costs alone may pay for the replacement machine over this unit.

-Good Luck!

Very poor printing


If the prints are light or have white lines it will be related to the laser unit. There is a strip of glass that sits above the drum inside the machine. Clean it. If there is toner on it will cause this problem. Otherwise the laser unit has failed.

If you have dark marks, blotches or reprinting (part of the image repeating lighter down the page). It will be build up on the fuser rollers. Remove the drum/toner and look at the rollers behind, they will look dirty. The only way to resolve this is to replace the fuser unit as it is worn out.

The only other possibility is that the drum contact on the sides of the machine are deformed or out of position. Its hard to tell and fairly unlikely in this model.

"Toner Low" message = no faxes :(


Need to do a hard reset. Contact Dell for instructions, but it will involve turning printer off, opening front cover, pushing buttons on front panel in certain sequence, etc. Each model differs, which is why you should call Dell.

Ricoh FAX2900L printing too dark


check the scanner white roller witch is under the front cover where you feed in the paper to be scanned sometimes this gets dirty you can take it out by releasing the levers on each side..this also sets the density for copying.. if you have just put a newe cartridge in also check that it is seated properly as the contacts for the charge might not be connecting properly
