Dell laser printer 3100cn problem: the back/rear panel or door will not shut to close. Can't print because message shows up ''must close duplex module''. When I physically hold the back panel (the largest door), and pull it to stay shut while printing, the printer reads that it is ready to print, but it's impractical for me to stay standing there holding this piece of machinery together.What can I do?

I'd suggest it is a sensor issue. Since the error comes up, the printer stops responding - even if everything is okay.

Make sure you have the ethernet cable plugged into the printer/network and is working properly. The toner replacement doesn't affect the network functions of the printer

SOURCE: Dell 3100cn laser printer poor print quality

It sounds like you've got contamination on the drum cartridge or on one of the toner cartridges.

I'm actually going to be installing black toner in my 3100cn in about 8 hours, so I'll inspect and clean each of the carts, and write up the process for you tonight.

Dell 3000cn Color Laser has a duplex. If you face the printer on the top right of the duplex there is a button to release the duplex and it folds back. The reg cover is a door on the back of the printer that is covered by the duplex, try opening again, I know you have done this, maybe even wiggle it a little see if it registers as closed.

Also check to see if any dust or paper pieces maybe be jammed in there.

Loud Abnormal Sounds with each print job


It may be a paper feed issue. If using a duplexer, try removing the duplexing unit and try printing again. It's often attached to the back of a printer.

Our Dell 3100CN pcl6 still prints, but it makes a grinding noise.


I had the same problem, tried to use the MFP tray, got jam, couldnt't close the rear door and used appropriate force... terrible noise with every print thereafter.
I fiddled with the roller at the back of the MFP tray. It didn't want to move much but after rotating it ~ 45 degrees back and forth it was in a more loose position. That seems to have solved it, no more noise!
