Question about Dell 3100cn Laser Printer
Rear door would not shut. Tried to force it and still would not close. I pushed on one of the white rollers (barrell is 1.5 in. wide not including 5/8 in. prong on each side) that rests against a metal bar with 2 black rubber rollers that press against the barrell that fell out (these rollers feed stock). Barrell is fine but need to reinstall it. I have since figured out how to massage the door to get it to shut. I took main unit off of paper tray unit but still did not observe access. Any help would be most appreciated. email@example.com
Pick up the printer, lay it on its front and close the reg cover. Simple as that but it took me ages to figure it out!!!!

I have the same problem but found the source of it:
There is a small blend inside at the buttom.
This blend should be in a upricht position, but falls back when reg cover is open.
Therefore it blocks the reg cover.
If you turn the printer over to you(almost 90°) this blend falls back and you can close the reg cover.
Would be great to get instructions from Dell how to fix this!

My solution is a little different with regard to closing the rear door. If you provide enough clearance for the rear door to open all or the way, take your hand and dribble the rear door against the back of the unit and your hand like it was a basketball (don't let it fall quite all of the way open so that you do not put tension on the hinge). Eventually something in the unit moves and allows the door to close. DO NOT PUSH ON THE ROLLERS. Even though they look like a likely culprit, they are easily dislodged and can fall out. I am still hoping someone will give me some guidance so I can reinstall my roller. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE!
