    I have the Dell 3100cn printer in operation for only 27 months. Overnight it appeared with the error code 016-302 restart printer!. I have called Dell customer service. They advised me it is a common error with the board located on the left side which then needs to be replaced at the cost of $307.99 PLUS LABOR. I have tried to power off/on, unplug all cables, unplug all wires from the board on left side. After doing this it looked promissing but it then continually read "processing" and got really hot.

    As with a previous user, my printer suddenly displayed "016-302 Restart and if same display, report to service." I also tried several self-help remedies (unplugging, changing outlets, and connector), but the same message reappeared. I called Dell, and the tech directed me to unplug and re-seat three connectors to the motherboard. It did not help. I have less than 7,000 copies on this machine. I had an unusually early message to change the primary drum. I have spent a fortune on this machine, so I do not intend to replace it. Everything (toner, drum) is new, but these costs are sunk costs. I will likely trash the machine.

Error code 016-370 Restart printer If problem


Error code: 016-370
This is yet another error message asking you to restart the printer. You need to switch off the printer and then connect it via the USB cable. Press the hold and cancel buttons simultaneously. Then power on the printer again. On your LCD display you should typically see a message saying 'ready for download mode'. You will then need to initialize the firmware update process. LCD will change to the writing mode. 10 minutes later you will be prompted to start the printer again.

The firmware is available here:

We are getting error code 004-332 Restart Printer on our Dell 3100cn printer. We have tried unplugging and restarting print spooler but it still come up witht message when we try to print


Hi


This error code on Dell 3100CN occurs when toner cartridges are not seated properly and/or are not properly locked in. Turn off the printer and unplug it. Now, you need to open the front door and pull out the drum. Try moving the carousel and check if it moves freely. While moving the carousel back and forth try adjusting the cartridges. try to unlock the cartridges and lock them again.

Now turn off the printer and turn it on after 1-2 min.s.
