SOURCE: dell 5100cn leaving line only on full color pages

There is more then likely damage to one of the photo developers. This is what transfers the toner to the imaging unit. The Developer frame assembly has to be totally removed in order to change one or all of the developers.

The only other posibility is that the printhead needs to be cleaned, however, in order to clean the printhead you would still need to remove the developer frame assembly to access the front of the printhead.

SOURCE: How do I turn on my RAM disk? (Dell 3100cn)

the print job may be too large for the available printer memory.

Your choices are one of the following:

Press to clear the message, cancel the current print job, and conduct the next print job, if any.

· Press Cancel to cancel the current print job.

· Press Menu to open the Stored Print and delete the current job.

To avoid this error in the future, do the following:

· Reduce the number of print pages such as splitting the print data.

· Increase free memory space by deleting unnecessary data in the RAM disk.

As for the RAM disk:
When you send a job to the printer, you can specify in the driver that you want the printer to hold the job in memory.

Whenyou are ready to print the job, you must go to the printer and use theoperator panel menus to identify which job in the memory you want toprint. You can use this function to print a confidential job (SecurePrint), or verify one copy before printing additional copies (ProofPrint).

NOTE: The printer holds the job until you delete it byusing the operator panel or you turn off the printer. (This is the RAMdisk)

NOTE: Print and Hold functions require a minimum of 320 MBavailable printer memory. Also, you need to configure the RAM disksettings on either the OPERATOR PANEL OR THE PRINTER DRIVER.

NOTE: Depending on the documents, its job may be too big for the available memory. In this case, an error occurs.
RAM disk is an option for that printer, but most users do not have thatoption, and if you accessed the menu for the 3100 on most of themachines in use you would receive that same error.

Although the printer itself shows " ready to print", this does not meanthat your computer is communicating with the printer. In Fact, thatmessage would show up even if you did not have it attached to anycomputer, as long as it was turned on and passed the self test.

More then likely the problem lies within the computer, NOT the printer.

To test the printers functionality, try printing a menu item, from the"reports" menu. Select either the printer settings, or the PCL Fontsreport. When selected, the printer should print which ever report youselected.

One thing you may want to check is to see if there are any print jobs "locked up " in the print spooler on your computer, and also make surethat the printer is not set to "work offline".

To do this, open the control panel, go to your "printers" folder, then double click on your printer.
This will open up the printer information for that printer. If there are any jobs in the print queue, they will show up here.

if there are any print jobs stacked up, usually it is the top job thathad a problem and is "stuck". This will prevent any job sent after thatto be held, pending release of that one.

single click the top job and either restart the job, or delete it.

Also, make sure that the printer is not set to work offline by clickingon "printer" from the menu and ensure that work offline is not checked.

Take this link and print it out. It will help you later when you get "other" error messages.

Printer keeps saying ram check and will not do anything else. No error code or anything. Just keeps sayig ram check


from what i know, some printers have a memory ram disk that holds the information for printing.
go to applications folder for your computer, dbl click printer icon for make of printer. check settings. print 'test document and clean cartridge heads', this should ensure proper printing formats. also see if there is information in this icon settings page about memory settings.

lastly, go to web site of printer model and check site for trouble shooting if this does not work above.
hope this helps and good luck

I can not print from my dell 5100 - The printer asks me to turn on ram disk!? what does this mean?


The printer has some built-in RAM (Random Access Memory) that it uses to store the print-files that it receives.

Work through the configuration-screens on the printer to "query" the size of the installed RAM (16MB? 64MB?) and to confirm that it is not "disabled".

How do I clear data from my RAM disk on Dell 3100cn printer


The RAM for the printer is temporary.
turn off the printer and unplug the printer from the outlet. wait for 20 sec. plug the printer in and turn it on.
you can select in the printer properties page of the printer to print immediately instead of spool and print from the last page first. that will eliminated the ob store in the RAM.
