Question about Dell 3000cn Laser Printer

1 Answer

I have a Dell 3000cn which has a problem when printing black only The right hand side of an A4/letter page (portrait) is faint and indistinct compared to the left half which is OK. When printing a page in colour with black text and colour graphics the colour graphics are fine wherever they are on the page but the text is faint and indistinct on the RH side Any ideas as to what is causing this? I have emptied the drum toner cartridge to no effect

    Ok then that can only mean that the fuser assembly for this printer is wearing out / failing. These Dell printers are notorious for wearing out much quicker than other brand printers unfortunately :(. You can replace the fuser assembly but it is very cost prohibitive in my opinion. The least expensive one I can find so far is $199 and is found here:
    http://www.tonerworlds.com/Product.asp?i...

    Other sites charge as much as $499 for it.

    Considering you can get a new - more efficient color laser printer for $190 I would say it doesn't make sense to fix this one, as the installation is pretty difficult as well. This is the Samsung (much better printer than that Dell) printer I speak of:

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001BXS...


    That printer sells for around $470 in a store, I think Amazon may have some special going right now on it, it's amazing... and free shipping + no tax..

    Thanks, sorry about the bad news

At college we have a w7200, how can we print across the paper rather than down it, for example a panoramic image across the width of the paper and say 20cm high


Try selecting LANDSCAPE as opposed to PORTRAIT by using the proper print menu in your application rather than the simple print icon from most tool-bars.

You can usually find it in the FILE menus

My 3000cn ran out of black and cyan toner, so I


I have fixed this now using advice that I found from other users on this site who had posted similar questions. In case it's useful to any of you, pull open the front cover and operate the small blue lever that you'll find behind it on the right. This opens a secret compartment on the outside of the printer and there you will find the cleaning rod. Pull and push this in and out about 15 times and it should fix any problems like the one I had.

Dell 3000cn color printer - black/grey line down right side of page. Is it the drum? How to check drum?


Sounds like the black drum. You can't get the part from anyone but Dell so be prepared for the cost. It also requires some disassembly to install on my Dell 5110cn so yours most likely will also.

Changing Dell 3000cn printer cartridge


The instructions always come with the new cartridges and also are printed on the new cartridges. You move the right hand (colored) side up to unlock. Carefully pull the cartridge up and out (you can screw up the gears if you don't put the cartridges in and out straight. Make sure you've followed the instructions that come with the new toner cartridge (removing tape, shaking), put it in the same way and move the right hand side down to lock.

DELL 3000cn Printing Problems


switch off the printer then switch on again whilst holding the UP and DOWN menu scroll buttons simultaneously.

Then you can go to a TEST PRINT area and print off pages of idividual colour.

If the streaks appear on ALL prints its likely to be the laser unit. If the streaks only print on the COLOUR sheets ( not BLACK) then the problem lies with the drum or the transfer belt.

Remove the drum and turn it manually with the gog at the side and give it a clean with a soft LINT FREE cloth, do the same for the transfer belt and then you may have to run a few test prints to get it all reprimed but you should be OK.
