Question about Dell 3100cn Laser Printer
For some reason after I installed a new black toner for the 3100cn printer it went through a really long calibrating cycle, and then said to replace the black toner, i tried another new on but after pulling out the newly installed one saw toner everywhere on the black toner cartridge, i replaced it with a new one and the same things happens, I have vacuumed out the entire printer and the same problem..!!!!
Replace with correct chip if this is not OEM

We have several 3100cn were I work. One has the above symptoms: very long calibrating cycle followed by the replace black toner message. I thought I could fix this by exchanging cartridges between the two printers to find the culprit. No success.
I then started looking for mechanical differences between the two printers -- and noticed that the roller BEHIND the black cartridge (take the cartridge out, look into the printer, and you'll see a partially hidden horizontal roller, perhaps part # C5396 2nd Bias Transfer Roller Assembly) was much more wobbly on the bad printer. I've yet to replace it (does not look easy), but I think this is the culprit.

After installing the toner cartridge the replace toner message will reappear after the calibration sequence until you press the menu button on the front of the printer. After doing that the message goes away and you should be ready to print again.
