Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

Dell 5100cn print is "cracking" on paper. It looks like a woodgrain texture when examining closely and makes the ink on the paper feel flaky. The image does rub off eventually, too. The toner is not "dell brand" but comparible and the fuser has been replaced recently.

Go to printer properties and Try to clean the nozels using maintenance mode. Still problem persists, insert the original toner and check the same. Don't use other brand toners or compatible toners.

Revert back for more assistance. Also provide feedback/rating on the same.

Blue lines are appearing on the output from our Dell 5100cn printer. We are using white letter sized paper.


This issues looking printer head problem. check the following Steps for cleaning printer head :

Click on the Start button if you have Windows XP. If you have Windows Vista, click the Windows icon that resides in the lower left corner of your computer screen.

Click on "Control Panel," then "Printers and Other Hardware." Finally click on "View Installed Printers or Fax Printers."

Right-click on the name of your printer and choose "Printing Preferences." This should open a new window; next look for a tab or button marked Maintenance, or something similar.

Find the button that says "Print heads" or "Clean the Print heads" and click on it. You may be asked to choose which print heads; choose them all if you are. Make sure there is paper and ink in your printer, and that it is turned on ahead of time.

Take out the page your printer has printed and see if there are any grids or boxes missing. If there aren't, then you can just exit the program--your print heads are not clogged. If there are grids missing, then click on the "Cleaning" or similarly worded button.

Once the cleaning process has completed, print another page to be sure that your print heads are no longer clogged. If they are still clogged, repeat Steps 1-5 until your printer is printing clearly.

Dell Laser Printer 5100cn Load MPF Letter Plain 1 !


Are you trying to use the "MPF" (Manual Paper Feed) tray?

If you are then the manual paper feed tray is usually a fold down flap at the back of the printer. It only accepts on piece of paper at a time.

However, if you are just trying to print to the printer's default tray, then you need to check both the "Page Setup" in the application and the printer driver properties to make sure that you are calling the correct paper tray.

I am having constant paper jams. All are caused by "crinkled at the top" paper. Are there rollers I could replace, or the drawer?


well first try using straight paper?
if not the picture you are trying to print may have too many colours in it causing the ink to stick to the rollers?

Printing noises - no ink transferring


Sounds like you may need to replace the developer drive assembly. This is the motor and gear assy that drive the color developers. it is located on the right side middle, 3 screws hold it in place. be careful when replacing to not over tightened screws.

Dell 5100cn Laser Printer Multipurpose Feed Problem


I had the same problem, my solution was:

1) Go into the Print dialog window, select your 5100cn printer and click the "Properties" button next to it.
2) Select the second tab, labeled "Paper Tray".
3) Select "MPF" from the "Paper Source" drop-down list.
4) Click the "MPF Settings" button and select "Envelope".

That should allow your program to print to MPF for envelopes. This needs to be done in your software, setting it on the printer's control panel didn't work for me.
