Question about Dell 3010cn Laser Printer
I have a Dell 3010cn printer that is out of warranty. I receive an error message "Paper Jam Open Reg Cover" 075-134. I have inspected the entire track both inside and out. There are no visual signs of any paper debris. There must be a sensor that is not giving correct information.
When I attempt to print there is no movement of parts when viewed throgh the MPF tray.
Do you have any suggestions? Is there somewher to get a complete schematics or blowups of the printer?

SOURCE: Dell 3010cn Not Picking from MPF
When you go to print are you selecting the MPF as the location to print? I have the 3110cn and you must manual select that you want it to print to the MPF.

Turn the printer off and on to see if it can automatically clear some or all of the jam. Many printers provide an error-code listing on the front panel display for the area where the jam occurred. If your printer shows an error code, be sure and check the printer manual to see if that identifies the area of the printer where the jam occurred.
Turn off the printer.
Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it in a bag or away from light to avoid damaging it.
If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly (see A). The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper (see B). Don't force anything, though.
Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.

The reason Dell said this problem was almost impossible to fix is because it is. There is a lift mechanism inside the housing for the MPF paper tray that lifts the paper to the roller to pull off the top sheet. The lift mechanism in this printer model is flimsy at best. There is a roller cam with a knuckle attached to it to does eventually break, causing a failure of the lift mechanism. The components to repair this problem are unavailable from Dell, and can only be salvaged from another printer. Here's the kicker... You have to disassemble the ENTIRE printer in order to replace this assembly. This took me 2 and a half hours to accomplish, and you're going to have to do it on 2 printers, as well as reassemble the fixed one. DO grease the cam assembly with some white grease to get the longest life possible if you choose this option. Best option? Either purchase another printer off eBay with a different problem and use yours to fix that one, or, as Dell so lovingly suggested, purchase a new one. The cost of today's color laser solutions make purchasing one of these printers a much more viable option than fixing your 3010cn.

If you receive an "Open front cover" error message the solution is to open the cover and remove the paper and any remnants of the paper jam. If there is no obvious paper remnants jamming the printer and you continue to receive an error message I would suggest unplugging the printer from the power source.
After 5 - 10 minutes plug in to power source.
Turn on printer.
See if this has resolved error message. If not you will need to check more carefully for paper remnants that would be causing the printer to detect a jam.
Trust this is helpful. :)
