Question about Dell 3000cn Laser Printer

1 Answer

Coloured dots There are dots of all four colors on any page I print in colour. When printing in black and white there are black dots only. Have done all of dell's online solution (remove, clean and shake each cartridge). Also the drum cartridge is fairly new so I don't think it is that (but i might be wrong). Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    I am having the exact same problem. I have had my Dell 3000 laser printer for about three years and just replaced the color cartridges. I am getting the single black dot on black only documents and getting four dots (black , cyan, magenta and yellow) on pages in color.

    I tried removing and replacing the cartriges but it had no effect.

What is the amount of magnetic Powder to be developed in the Fuser Section?


None. It is electrostatic attraction.
It varies from each type of laser printer.
Most printers will specify a total number of pages printed from a laser toner cartridge rather than give an actual amount of toner per page. Which I feel would be more likely to be an average value.
Due to the amount of toner being used per page varying on the number of actual pixels that are required - a black dot or a color dot. If a colour dot is required Three toner colors may be involved to get the color required. Where there is a white dot no toner is required.
It really depends on what image is being rendered onto the paper on each different page image print onto the paper.
Color photos use more toner as more of the page is color than when using black and white !

Printer only prints in black/white. have put new


It could be the print setting on your computer.
If you're using Windows, with your document open, go to File > Properties/Preferences. In the Print Setup tab, make sure to select "Print using all available ink" in the Ink Use section.
On Mac you can select Color in Print Setting in any expanded print dialog.

Printer is not printing black but in a pinkish color


Most printers use the colour cartridge to make black, instead of the black cartridge. When you go to print a black and white document, on the box where you choose the number of pages to print, click properties, and locate the colour settings. There will be two options: Colour/Black and White-with a sub option of high quality or black only. Select Black only. The printer will now only use the black ink.

Solution for "I have a Epson Aculaser c1100 and four coloured dots have appeared when printing. These dots are approximately 5cms from the left side of the page and print in a small vertical group. Each...


The four coloured dots are what is known in the trade as "Traffic Lights". They happen when the photocuductor (PCU) drum gets scratched. If you do a black only print you will only get a black dot, if you do a print with some colour in it you will get all four dots repeated at 150.41mm (PCU drum circumference) intervals. The best answer would be to replace the PCU but it is expensive. The alternative is to take out the PCU, find the scratch and try to polish it out with a very soft cloth. This will only work on the lightest of scratches. Be very careful not to scratch the drum further and avoid shining any bright light on it as it will damage the photo-sensitive surface (normal ambient light is OK).
