Question about Dell 5110cn Laser Printer

1 Answer

When I make a print, the black color repeat 2 times and color geting lighter and lighter about 3-inch under previous paragraph ( I think it is the circumference of the imaging drum). I also found the black toner stuck to the imaging drum too ( not on other imaging drums). What can I do to get rid of the repeating printing? Please help. Steve

If this problem is only happening with the black drum, it sounds like the drum is not getting cleaned correctly, and the residual toner is staying on the drum and being reapplied to the paper again. Replacing the imaging drum unit should take care of your problem.

My Printer prints a Colored Ink. But I type as a black Font Color.Then Black Ink Has full?? pls help me


Hi Carl Montero,
Your issue may be attributed to two possible points of failure. 1.) The Nozzle is clogged, 2.) the ink is already dry inside. You can try to clean the nozzle by doing the following steps. If it does not work, try to replace the cartridge with a new one.
FINE Cartridge Cleaning
1 Press [Menu] repeatedly until appears. 2 Use [ ] or [ ] to select . 3 Press [OK]. 1 Press [Maintenance] repeatedly until appears. 2 Press [Black] or [Color].
FINE Cartridge Deep Cleaning
1 Press [Menu] repeatedly until appears. 2 Use [ ] or [ ] to select . 3 Press [OK]. 1 Press [Maintenance] repeatedly until appears. 2 Press [Black] or [Color].
Note If deep FINE Cartridge cleaning does not improve the print quality, contact a Canon service representative.

My Brother MFC 7840W prints but has a faint copy of the previous paragraph about 3 inches below. I have cleaned the corona wire very thoroughly but still the 'ghost' printing on my documents. How do I fix...


Yes. The drum is most likely your problem. It is possible that it is a one time problem, which can occur if you print a very dark black page or image followed by a light gray page or image. If it has only happened once or twice try printing a different document to check it. If it is happening repeatedly, then you should replace the drum and instantly see it fixed. You can get a drum anywhere that supplies toner.

I hope this helps! Good luck!

My brother MFC 665CW printer shows a 4F error and unable to clean. How do I get to the head to clean it?


Do the following to clean the print head:


1. Press INK key on the control panel.


2. Press the DOWN arrow key until CLEANING appears on the LCD.


3. Press OK.


4. Press the DOWN arrow key to select BLACK, COLOR or ALL depending on what you want to clean.


5. Press OK.


The machine will clean the print head. When cleaning is finished, the machine will go back to Ready automatically. If you are experiencing a print quality issue, we recommend you repeat the print head cleaning for each color showing an issue at least five (4) times.


If you are experiencing a print quality issue and want to see if the cleanings are improving the print quality, print a Print Quality Check Sheet (PQCS) after the first cleaning and then print another PQCS after repeating the print head cleaning steps at least three (3) more times (4 total cleanings). You can then compare the two Print Quality Check Sheets.


Do the following to print a Print Quality Check Sheet:


1. Press INK key on the control panel. TEST PRINT will appear on the LCD.


2. Press OK. PRINT QUALITY will appear on the LCD.


3. Press OK.


4. Press COLOR START.


NOTE: The machine will generate the Print Quality Check Sheet (PQCS). On the PQCS each of the four colors is represented by a slanted square pattern made up of 96 individual blocks. The colors should appear (from left to right): Black - Yellow - Cyan - Magenta. Cyan is the light blue color and Magenta is the pinkish color.

My Brother MFC-490CW won't print


Did you try onboard print test by pressing INK LEVEL button. I am having similar problem but color prints but black does not. The printer has built in diagnostics that walks you thru some troubleshooting steps. It has you repeat cleaning 5 times and then asks you to replace cartridges if test fails...than repeat tests and call customer support if that does not work. Which I may do soon.

Black will not print


I am not sure if this will help but I will try. I have 4 types of Canon printers and 7 canon printers. I have had problems w/some of my colors not coming out. There are 2 ways that I've done. First is the simpler one. Just go to the printer maintenance and choose nozzle cleaning for the BCI3 or the Colors CMYK or for all. If after that you do a print check, not the printhead alignment, and the black still doesn't come out then the 2nd way is to pump it out of the printhead. The print check should give you an indication which of the black is not coming out. I checked over the net and see the IP4000 has 2 black cartridges BCI3 and BCI6. So we need to identify which of the black is not coming out. Based on the print check you can identify which of the black is clogged. I suggest you remove the printhead from the printer. The lever that holds the printhead should be just above or in front of the cartridges. I'm guessing that you may have used refilled cartridges before. Which might have caused the clog. But then even original inks under extensive use also has that problem. Not as fast though. You can choose to identity which of the 2 black colors are clogged or you can choose to just unclog the 2 black colors in the printhead. You can do this by getting a syringe and a plastic or rubber tube that has about 5mm for the inner diameter hole. Cover the round nozzle from the inside of the printhead and slowly pump out the nozzle. You should have tissue or newspaper under the printhead and make sure it less than an inch above the tissue or paper. That way you don't get splattered when the ink comes out. When the old ink has cleared out, put the cartridge back in w/ the printhead. Turn the printer off and on a 2-3 times so the printer can prime the tubes in the printhead. Do either 2 light or 1 deep cleaning. Then do a printcheck to see if the black will print.

I think you problem is only a clogged printhead. So you can do the light nozzle cleaning,or deep nozzle cleaning or you can flush out the printhead manually. This should open it up and I think it will be ok. If not, let me know. That's going to be a challeng for me.
