There's a RFID chip that has instructed the printer to give this message. You can replace the chip by yourself.

Drum, fuser and power supply can contribute to this issue. check if you have the printer connected to a surge protector or a UPS. Laser printers are picky about surge protectors especially if they are not designed to handle the voltage.
try connecting directly to the wall the issue should get progressively better.
if you can rub the images off the paper then it's the fuser.

I had the same problem with a 3100cn printer. Dell had a large batch of defective drum kits. They replaced 3 before we found a good one. I recommend you exchange the defective drum kits.
