Dell 3100 CN replace drum cartridge

Hi,
I just got an error message asking me to replace the drum cartridge of the printer. It has been printing fine and I don't see a reason why to spend the money for a new cartridge if the old one is still ok.
Since this message occurred the printer refused to print.
Is there any way to reset the error message so that it prints again?

Thanks a lot for your help!

SOURCE: Dell 3100 CN replace drum cartridge

No. There is no reset as there is with some units. This unit actually knows via a smart chip in the drum unit if it has reached EOL ( end of life ).

There is a known issue for these printers to "streak." If under warranty, call Dell. If not, there is a fix
for the defective drum unit design but requires a little technical expertise.

Dell all in one printer 922


The printhead is inside the printer. Hp calls it a scanner. It's the laser that "prints" the info on the drum for printing. Usually a printhead error means that you'll have to get it replaced, not a cheap proposition.

Error code: 004-332

This type of error code implies that you need to restart the printer again. However, do check to see if toner cartridges are seated in the proper position. Also ensure that they have been locked in.
