However, it will not print and upon clicking the printer icon on the tool bar
the message under the status column says 'power off'

Can anybody help with my problem,please?

Try to manually trouble shoot the connections of your printer and your pc. if not, follow Ekse ' s advice to reset the device and settings to start from scratch.

Having a diagnostic which says ready to print and printer icon that says printer is off, the connection is the first thing that comes into my mind. kindly jump from 1 usb slot to another. this may also help fix your issue.

Dell 3010CN Color Laser Printer is leaving vertical smudge/bleeding. Is there a toner dump box to empty? It is just cyan streaking.


Try a new Cyan toner cartridge. If nogo, will need a new transfer roller or transfer belt (I used to work on these printers but forgot if they use a belt or not... I will check on the DCSE site and post back)

Printer


Firstly, BE SURE TO USE LASER PRINTER TRANSPARANCIES. The cheaper inkjet kind will melt in the fuser.

Then, in all 3: driver, software program and on the printer itself using the front panel, change the paper type to transparency.

Good luck.
