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.

Try replacing the toner cartridge. This seems to be a problem with the photo-sensitive drum, which is located in the cartridge.

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.

Blank vertical line from top to bottom on the right


Check to make sure that the locks on the toner cartridges are all the way seated. If they are not seated right they block the image from the laser to the imaging drum. All they have to be is a 1/16 of aan inch open and will do this.

Print missing on right side of page


Drum, fuser and power supply can contribute to this issue. check if you have the printer connected to a surge protector or a UPS. Laser printers are picky about surge protectors especially if they are not designed to handle the voltage.

try connecting directly to the wall the issue should get progressively better.

if you can rub the images off the paper then it's the fuser.
