Hi there,

Installing the Toner Cartridge

  1. Remove the top cover.

  1. Pull the toner seal for each toner cartridge straight up to remove it.
NOTICE: Pull the toner seal straight up. Pulling the toner seal diagonally may tear the seal.

3. Replace the top cover by inserting its front side into the printer first.

Installing the Imaging Drum install developer assembly for dell 5110cn - caution.gif CAUTION: Make sure nothing touches or scratches the surface of the light-sensitive drum surface (green-colored roller) or the transfer roller (black-colored roller). Scratches, dirt, or oil from your hands on the imaging drum or transfer roller may reduce the print quality.
  1. Push the front latch up and fully open the front cover.

    CAUTION: Make sure nothing touches or scratches the surface of the light-sensitive drum surface (green-colored roller) or the transfer roller (black-colored roller). Scratches, dirt, or oil from your hands on the imaging drum or transfer roller may reduce the print quality.
  1. Push the button and open the top cover.
  2. Remove the protective cover from the imaging drum.
  3. Holding the imaging drum by the handle with the flat part facing the back of the printer, align the plastic guides on both sides of the imaging drum with the slots in front of the arrows on the printer. Gently lower the imaging drum into the printer.
    NOTICE: Lowering the cartridge into the printer without correctly aligning the rollers with the slots can damage the cartridge. NOTICE: Do not allow the surface covered with a protective sheet to come into contact with anything.
5. Pull the protective cover on the imaging drum straight up to remove it.
NOTICE: Do not touch the transfer roller (black-colored roller). Make sure that nothing touches or scratches the roller surface. Scratches or oil from your hands on the roller deteriorates print quality.
6. Close the top cover.
7. Close the front cover.

Hope this helps.

Colours are faded despite all toners at 25% or

If there is black "dust" all over the developer (behind the image drum assembly ) you need to replace the developer; that is uncoated toner prevenitng transference of colored toner.

My Dell 5110CN printer is printing a double image

I am having the same problem, and I am using the original toner cartridges that were supplied with the printer, so yes, they are genuine Dell toner cartridges.

Dell 5110cn

I had the same problem and Dell tech talked me through it. First, hit Menu key. Using up and down arrow keys, select Administrator. Then select Maintenance. Then select Clean Developer. Keep using down arrow keys to get to these menu items. Using down arrow, select color to clear (in my case magenta). Run this whole routine 4 times. It takes a while each time. What is going on is that in the center section of the printer, there is a roller with felt on it and it is cleaning the toner off of the developer roller (you can see all the toner on it if you take the assembly out). Print 10-12 copies of a blank document (e.g., in Word). Should clear up.

Dell thinks this happens if one has the printer plugged into a power bar or other bad electrical connection. We had a power outage but the problem happened suddenly from one print job to the next.

Dell 5110cn Printer Problem

Hi Caroline,

Thank you for using Fixya.

From what you mentioned, it does sound like you may have a defective black developer, especially since the rest of the colors are still functional.

The imaging drum COULD cause this as well, even if the other colors are working, as the primary transfer still has involves a photo conductor that acts independent of the other 3 colors.

Before you swap out any parts, do try this... using the control panel, lets try to clean the black developer unit. what this does is cause the auger to move toner from the cartridge to the black developer and insures that there is in fact toner in the developer.

click on the menu button, scroll to select maintenance, then developer cleaning, then select black.

try printing again after that.

If that does not fix the issue, again before spending money on repairs, I would try a new ( or an old one if you did not get rid of it ) imaging drum. If that fixes the problem, then it needed to be changed. if it does not, it IS a consumable and will need to be changed in the future anyway, you can put the old one back in and the new one back in the silver pouch and reseal it until you need it.

if neither of those two things work, then the next step would be the developer itself.

I am sure you can purchase the item from Dell. I have not looked, but usually you can do a google and/or ebay search for any Dell part number as well and find it for sale that was as well.

Good Luck :)
