SQUEALING SOUND MY DELL LASER MFP 1815DN, WHICH IS BRAND NEW ! (2 MONTHS OLD) IS HAVING THIS SQUEALING SOUND WHEN I ASK IT TO PRINT ANYTHING. CHECKED ALL PARTS I COULD -- OPENED UP FRONT AND BACK, AND NO PAPERJAMS ANYWHERE..... WHAT IS THE PROBLEM ?

    dell 1815 dn. 15 month old. working fine - wanted to print 8.5 x 14. It took me a while to figure out that instead of the bypass tray (which had a paper jam) I could extend the regular tray to accomodate legal paper. While I was solving the problem, I carefully opened the fuser door and removed the paper jam. Now the machine won't print without jamming - even letter size. Dell says the fuser has to be replaced - at least $200-250. Does this make sense to you. Email pref6051@yahoo.com or call 714-842-7549



    Thanks. Dave

Sounds like it stripped the pickup wheel drive gear.
Since it is only 2 months old, I would suggest calling Dell to have then service or replace the unit.
You will need the service tag, and the express service code (they can be found on a little white sticker where you put the toner in).
Contact Dell through the 800 # or they do have a really good online chat service. That device will have at least a one year warranty. I have found at most times, they will simply swap the unit out (I have 8 of these)

Dell mfp 1815dn is printing a "shadow" of the words I just printed. It's almost like there is still toner on the roller and then it prints it again. Not sure what is happening. Do I need a...


That effect is called ghosting, and yes, toner is sticking on the drum and is being re-printed. There are two drums it could do this on, one would be the OPC drum (which is part of the print cartridge). and the other possible one is on the fuser. If I were you I would first try a new print cartridge (part# 310-7945) which is most likely. If that doesn't fix it then try replacing the fuser (part# UG297). Also, make sure you use a dell print cartridge becuase a generic one could cause this to happen.
Iteminc.com has both these genuine items in stock and can ship same day until 7pm est.
If you decide it is the fuser, here is a video to replace that

My dell laser mfp 1815dn is saying the memory is full how do i erase it?


Write cmd in your start button(you maybe have to run as admin)
A black window appers
Then write stop spooler and press enter.
Wait until the window close.
Your print job is now erased.

If this does not help, upgrade your software from here:

Dell laser mfp 1815 dn "scanner locked" message


When you lift the scanner lid look to the left bottom. you should see a green slider button. If you stick your hand in the output tray and get it rigth under the green slider you will find a lever. Move that thing backwards or forwards, that is your unlocker.

Scanner locked printer dell laser mfp 1815dn


The lock for the scanner is on the roof of the cavity where the printed paper comes out. Simply flip it to the other position and restart the printer.

Prints faint copies


If the print rubs off the page, this means the toner is not being fused to the page. Fused......this is done by the fuser. This would have nothing to do with light print.

The dell (1600n and 1815n /1815dn) printer drivers has a toner saver mode, which can contribute to light print.

To turn Toner Save Mode off, (Windows XP) perform the following steps:
  1. Click the Start button, click Settings, and then click Printer and Faxes.
    The Printers and Faxes window appears.
  2. Right-click Dell Laser MFP 1600n, 1815dn, and left-click Printing Preferences.
    The Dell Laser MFP 1600n, 1815dn Printing Preferences window appears.
  3. Click the Advanced button.
    The Dell Laser MFP 1600n, 1815dn Advanced Options window appears.
  4. Click to highlight Toner Save.
  5. Click the drop-down list and change it to Off and click OK.
  6. Click OK.
One thing that you mentioned in your post "it takes the printer forever to warm up". The fuser does have to reach operational temperature in order for it to fuse the toner to the page. So it is possible that you are having fuser problems, because of the time it is taking for it to warm up. Another thing that can contribute to the warm up time is not plugging the laser printer directly into a wall outlet. This would be true for any laser printer, not just a Dell laser printer. The low voltage power supply is what works the fuser, along with sensors and other motors in the printer.

Replacing the fuser and or the low voltage power supply in this model of printer is not an easy task. If using a Dell branded toner cartridge and checking the toner saver mode does not fix the issue. Then you would be looking at more expense then the machine would possibly be worth.
