    I have the same problem, but can't figure out how to reset the memory. I've looked through the owner's manual, but can't find any information. I went to my control panel on the computer and looked all through the printer info and can't find anything there, either. How do I reset the memory?

Dell 3100cn printer prints individual colors fine. When printing full color picture the paper wraps around the fuser. Tried new fuser - same problem. Any suggestions?


Good old fuser wrap, what a pain. What type of paper are you printing on. Often with full page coverage printing I find that you need to user a heavier bond color printing paper to achieve any sort of good quality and reliability in feeding.

you can select in the printer properties page of the printer to print immediately instead of spool and print from the last page first. that will eliminated the ob store in the RAM.

I had to add extra memory to mine. It is easy and not too expensive.

Otherwise you can reduce the memory size of the picture in a graphics program (IrfanView is free and safe, for example).
-resample/resize it
-reduce the DPI (Dots Per Inch)
-reduce the color depth (32bits to 24 or 16 or 12)
-sometimes converting it to a more compressed JPG or PNG will allow it to print.

Also sometimes printing it through a different program works.

Ram disk


Stangowner, In this case, the print job is too large for the available printer memory. Your choices are one of the following: Press to clear the message, cancel the current print job, and conduct the next print job, if any. · Press Cancel to cancel the current print job. · Press Menu to open the Stored Print and delete the current job. To avoid this error in the future, do the following: · Reduce the number of print pages such as splitting the print data. · Increase free memory space by deleting unnecessary data in the RAM disk. As for the RAM disk: When you send a job to the printer, you can specify in the driver that you want the printer to hold the job in memory. When you are ready to print the job, you must go to the printer and use the operator panel menus to identify which job in the memory you want to print. You can use this function to print a confidential job (Secure Print), or verify one copy before printing additional copies (Proof Print). NOTE: The printer holds the job until you delete it by using the operator panel or you turn off the printer. (This is the RAM disk) NOTE: Print and Hold functions require a minimum of 320 MB available printer memory. Also, you need to configure the RAM disk settings on either the OPERATOR PANEL OR THE PRINTER DRIVER. NOTE: Depending on the documents, its job may be too big for the available memory. In this case, an error occurs. Take this link and print it out. It will help you later when you get "other" error messages. http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/3100cn/en/UG/section19.html And here's a link for more "operational" situations. http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/3100cn/en/UG/section16.html#1087088 ZT3000 "Beta tester of "0"s and "1's"

Dell 3100cn Duplex won't feed


I'd suggest it is a sensor issue. Since the error comes up, the printer stops responding - even if everything is okay.
