Non Dell toner

I've put Non-Dell toners in but now when I attempt to set the printer to "Non-Dell Toner" it tells me that "It failed at the information transmission"
I've re-installed the printer, checked the cables and cartridges but it still tells me the same.

SOURCE: Dell 1600n has been ghosting lately

The 1600n AIO (all-in-one) is a laser printer. Laser printer use a statically charged "drum" to place toner on the paper. Your ghosting problem may be from the drum itself becoming too charged or simply dirty and not the cartridge. Servicing laser printers is tricky business because they use a lot of wattage/voltage to create the static charge and also "bake" the image onto the paper. A very quick fix would be to de-ionize the drum and clean it thoroughly.

First, make sure you have the unit completely unplugged for, at least, ten to fifteen minutes before proceeding to ensure that all static charge has had a chance to dissopate.

Second, remove the toner cartridge and place it on some newspaper or paper towels. Inspect it for any residual toner and/or damage that may be causing the ghosting (look for cracks/grooves/lines in the cartridge that shouldn't be there).

Third, take a used dryer sheet (or one that's had most of the chemical fabric softener rinsed off and then completely dried) and wipe the entire drum to completely remove any static charge. Then, using denatured alcohol and static-free, lint-free wipes clean the entire drum to remove any remaining detritus. Allow to dry thoroughly before proceeding.

Last, wipe the drum down, one final time, with a clean dryer sheet or lint-free cloth. Reassemble the unit and replace the toner cartridge.

Run a few clean sheets (blank prints or copies) to further remove any particles knocked loose and check for any more "ghosting."

Final printing will be necessary to check for inconsistencies or success.

SOURCE: Replace Toner message with new cartridge.

Ok, I got mine working again. Turns out there was about 2 cups of that crappy 3rd party toner all gummed up inside the mixing chamber just behind the metal roller. It was so jammed full of bad toner that the new dell toner couldn't even make it through to the roller. If you are feeling ambitious (and your printer is broken anyway) here is how I got mine working.

  1. Turn off printer.
  2. Pull the toner and drum out of the printer and rotate the carousel by hand until the black toner holder is at the top. 
  3. Look on the right side of the carousel where the toner cartridge locks in. There is a white clip. Get a good flashlight and carefully examine how the clip works before you start prying on it. Gently pull back the small locking tab and rotate the clip towards you and remove it.  
  4. Look on the other side, opposite where the white clip was. There is a small metal bracket held with a screw. Remove the screw and the bracket.
  5. Now you can carefully lift the *entire black toner housing, roller and gearbox* of off the carousel. You may have to rotate the carousel slightly to maneuver it out.
  6. Set the housing on a clean surface and remove the two screws that hold the scraper blade over the roller.
  7. Dump out ALL the bad toner inside and clean off the roller with alcohol.
  8. Dispose of bad toner and reassemble printer in the reverse order.
When reinstalling the blade you will need to set the gap between the blade and the roller so that a smooth, even layer of toner is spread across the roller as it turns. Too big a gap and your prints will be dark and smudgy. Too small and your prints will be light. I checked my other colors with a feeler gauge, they were all set to 0.018" from the factory. You can eyeball it if you have to but using a feeler gauge works a lot better.

Final step is to install a new Dell toner cartage and allow the printer to calibrate. With any luck your will be fully functioning again.

SOURCE: cannot remove toner cartridge

There is a manual removal option. Open the front cover. Then the top. Remove the drum. Close the front cover. (leave the top open). Move the toner housing unit so the required toner is accessable from the back. Remove.

Replace drum. Restart printer. The housing unit shoud rotate the empty spot to the front so you can insert the new toner.

Good luck.

Screen reads no cartridge when there is a full cartridge in the printer


This is a pretty common item, usually for HP printers however I've also seen this with non-HP printers. They REALLY want you to use genuine HP or Dell ink/toner in their printers since they make lots of money on consumables. That being the case, there is a chip on most original (OEM) toner cartridges that tells the printer that its a genuine cartridge. If you purchase aftermarket/remanufactured/3rd party toner to save a few dollars, they frequently don't have these chips, however other than that they work just fine.
If you have purchased a Staples/Office Max or some other non Dell branded toner, that's likely what happened. My suggestion is to live with this minor annoyance and just wait until the print begins to get lighter in color. THAT will be your indication that its about time to change the toner.
If you get this same issue with a new Dell branded toner, then you may want to try to find this chip and use a pencil eraser to carefully clean the electrical contacts on the toner cartridge. That may help the printer read the cartridge chip easier.
Hope this helps! Best of luck!

Dell Laser 5100


Means the Yellow Toner Cartridge is not communicating with the printer. If you've installed a third party yellow toner cartridge, go to the Dell Printer Configuration Web Tool to set the toner to non-Dell toner. If it is a Dell cartridge, the procedure is to turn the printer off, wait 10 seconds, and turn the printer back on.

Hi, My Dell 3100CN printer is displaying "Change Black Toner." I have replaced the toner cartridge. The printer begins to calibrate for a very long time. When it finally finished calibrating, it return to...


There is a chip in each toner cartridge which tells the main machine something about how full it is. It may be that it tells it how full it is, or it may be that it tells it how many pages it has done. It sounds as if the new black cartridge has a duff chip, and is telling the main machine that it is empty. To test this, you can overide the message. 1. press on the menu button;
2. select configure;
3. select maintenance;
4. select non-dell toner;
5. set the value to on.
If that does't work, get back to me.

There is no setting on the 1710 printer to clear the error of a non Dell branded toner being inserted. Some higher end Dell printers do have a setting for Non-Dell branded toner. Not all Dell printers have this setting. Resetting the drum count will have no effect on a non dell branded toner error.

Pages full of toner / toner streaking


First off, this is a comment from a random person who may or may not know ALOT about these printers and toner/printer design in general. All toners are not designed to the same specification. Toner is a combination of plastic "pigment" and iron like shavings to make it magentically attracted to the electrical charges within the unit. Different toners conform to different grades and mainly size of the particles within the blend. The manufacturer doesnt only recommend that you use their toner to make them money, yes of course it makes money, but its because when the unit is designed it is designed to use a certain grade of toner, trust me if you put the non-branded toner vs the branded toner under a microscope you would see quite a difference. Often the non-branded toner is much larger in particle size (obviousely because its cheaper to make at this spec). This causes a variety of issues from excess toner not being cleaned off of developer rollers, IDT rollers, or clogging of toner dispenser tubes in the unit and the micro filters contained at the toner dispenser assy and developer assys. Also as for the issue not changing when switching to dell branded toner - the dispenser tubes within this unit contain up to 500-1000 pages worth of toner, making no change in toner you make immediately visible. Also depending on the damage caused by the previous toner, it may not be able to be fixed until all the components in between the toner and final delivery (drum cart) are replaced. In this case more than likely the toner dispenser assy, all developer assy's, and drum cartridge need to be replaced, and than be sure to stick with factory branded toner :)
