SOURCE: Dell 3100 CN replace drum cartridge

I found this posting on a Dell website. It maybe helpful before the chip activates.

Title: Extend drum life
Date: March 25, 2008
ProsIt prints
Consnot very long

Additional ThoughtsAfter the drum "expired" the first time I purchased a small $10 chip on a popular auction site and that brought it back to life. It then "filled up" after several more months. What is that? Well, if you occasionally would empty the excess toner that it picks up off the paper as it flows through the printer you can catch the drum before it "POPs" a small pressure sensor that would immediately stop the printing and say it is "FULL". There are two screws - one on each end of the "nose" of the drum. You will be shocked to see all that comes out.

I have no idea what ikkenom is smoking.

The Drum Cartridge unit is as user-replaceable as a toner cartridge.

Yes, you will have to replace the drum cart.

It applies toner to the page and offers a usable life of up to 42,000 page impressions (up to 10,500 pages per color).The part number located on this toner cartridge is: P4866

It comes with very detailed instructions on how to remove the old cartridge and install the new one. Very easy, but there's no way around the price tag.

Our Dell 3100CN printer blocks out a 1/2" wide line (all colors) print area on the right side. We replaced the printer drum unit and that didn't fix the problem. It was printing fine until we replaced the...


Try the cleaning rod. visit: http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/3100cn/en/ug/section22.html
for images (under replacing the "cleaning rod pad") for where to find the cleaning rod. You likely don't need to replace the pad, just use the rod (pull out and push in 10X) and try to print again.
