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: http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&releaseid=R148843&SystemID=PRN_LSR_3100CN&servicetag=&os=WLH&osl=en&deviceid=6673&devlib=0&typecnt=0&vercnt=1&catid=-1&impid=-1&formatcnt=0&libid=40&typeid=-1&dateid=-1&formatid=-1&source=-1&fileid=197745
Turn off the printer and let it sit for at least 10 minutes.
Then power the printer back on.
If the error does not return, try printing a few print jobs. If the error still does not return, continue using the printer as before but keep an eye on it for the next few days. If the error does not return, it may have been an isolated incident.
If the error does return, you can perform an NVRAM reset on the printer. Note: Please do this only as a last resort before requesting service. Resetting the NVRAM on the printer will cause the printer to return all customer-defined settings to the factory defaults. To perform an NVRAM reset:
Turn off the printer.
With the printer still off, press and hold the following three buttons: Select, Go, and the right arrow (>) Menu button. All three of these are located on the printer's LCD screen.
While holding the three buttons down, power on the printer.
Continue holding these buttons until you see Performing Self Test, Clearing NVRAM, or Restoring Factory Defaults on the printer's LCD screen. You can then release the buttons.
If the error does not return on power up, continue using the printer but keep an eye on it for the next week or two.
If the error does not come back, the printer should be fine.
If the error does return, the engine/system board will most likely need to be replaced.
Try this... it worked on my MP450... Turn the printer on and open the lid, it shows the cartridges. Now let the cartridges settle to the left. You can notice that the cartridges run on a metal belt. It might be dirty, mine showed a black stripe on it. Take a cloth, a cleenex will be fine and clean it up. Move the cartridges to the right (force them with your hand) and clean the part of the belt left behind them. Now turn it off, close it up and turn it back on. It should work

Unfortunately for this error code, all it says is this:
Turn the machine off, and remove the power plug from the outlet.
About ten minutes later, plug it in again, and turn the machine on.
If the problem is not resolved, the machine may require servicing. Please contact your local Service Center.
