A low level toner will cause this fault. Try replacing the toner cartridge with a new one.

Do a head cleaning at least 3 times and then print a test page and see what you get. Also in printer settings see if you are on "Default" or you changed it somehow........

Printer stops when printing should begin with red light in status


There is a few reasons that cause the status light to turn red, paper jam, paper empty, toner cartridge empty, cover open and waste toner cartridge full. The PC Smart panel utility should give you an exact fault condition. Hope this helps.

I need to know how old this dryer is Model 66814690 serial MG 1316480


The date of manufacture (month and year) are calculated by the first two letters of the serial number. The first letter being the month and the second letter is the year. The year letter code rolls over each 12 years so you have to know the age within 12 years. The link below will give you the guide to calculate.

different models of copiers run different ways, some lasers write the white part of the page in others it writes the black. some machines use corona wires to charge the drum and some use rollers.

Go to start menu, accessories, system tools, character map. In here you can either copy and paste what you need or hold your mouse over a letter and it will give you a unicode command you can use to type that charater on your number pad.

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.

Toner Low Light on within 2 months of replaced toner cartridge


Yields for cartridges are based on a page being only 6% covered. Most letters are about 10% coverage. If you print anything with lots of print (especially bold) your yield will reduce drastically. The same thing goes for pictures.

Paper size detected is not supported when making a copy


When I saw that so many other people were also getting this error message, I thought sure there would be a solution posted by somebody before too long. Guess no one could figure it out!

The problem continued and was getting extremely irritating so I went and spent a couple of hours on HP's support site and finally figured out what to do, even though I never did find the exact error message we've all been getting.

Basically, the fix is to change the paper size default setting in the Copy Menu from Automatic to Letter. You do this by pressing Copy, then #6, select Letter (which is #2), and that will bring you back to the Copy Menu. Scroll down through all 10 selections until you get to the bottom which is Set New Defaults and select this.

I've tried making several copies and it has worked every time now...no error message in sight! However, if you're trying to make copies onto paper other than standard 8.5x11, you'll have to select that with each individual job since there will no longer be an "Automatic" detection.

Hope this helps everyone else who has had this annoying problem!
