Question about Dell 3000cn Color Laser Printer

2 Answers

Printer Problems I was wondering if anybody could help me. My printer is printing a straight thin line an inch left of center on every page. I have used the cleaning tool on the side of the printer but the line will not go away. Is there something else I should try. Thanks!

From experience with similar machines, it sound very much like either contaminents in the optical path or a scored drum.

HP 2840 printing two thin black lines from top to the bottom of the center of the page is that a fuser kit problem?


It could be a fuser problem.
Put paper in the manual feed tray. Print a few pages. As the paper gets
1/2 way into the printer, open the cover. Look down at the paper in the printer.
If it has 2 thin black lines, the toner cartridge needs to be replaced. If there are no lines the fuser is probably bad.

Please run a printer alignment exercise. Then do a print head cleaning exercise. If these does not solve the problem then try to reset you printer. Clear the printer memory. Please follow the user manual to perform the steps.

My Ricoh Aficio CL2000N is printing several faint lines


Couple possibilities:
Fuser hot belt has wear lines transfering to the page
Black pcu needs to be replaced
Transfer unit is not being cleaned properly and needs to be replaced.
Remove each of these assy and inspect them for wear or lines that corespond to the lines on your prints.

Printing lines not straight and letters shadowed. Help!


Open the cover over the print head and *carefully* inspect the clear thin plastic strip that runs from left to right near the print head. If you see any lubricant (white grease) on this encoder strip, it needs to be cleaned off.
1. With the cover open and the print head in the center, unplug the power cord. This will allow you to gently move the print head left or right.
2. With a cotton swab wetted with rubbing alcohol, *gently* wipe the grease spots from the encoder strip. (Be VERY CAREFUL you don't dislodge the strip.) You may need to move the print head to the left or right to get all areas cleaned.
3. Let the alcohol dry off completely. With the area clear of cleaning tools, debris, and fingers, plug the power back in.
4. Try a test print.
