Question about Dell 3100cn Laser Printer

1 Answer

Close the front door problem.

Hi,
I have a problem with my dell 3100cn printer.
For the last few weeks it has stopped working at all. The message it displays on screen is

  CLOSE THE FRONT DOOR

I have tried all options which I could. Front door is perfectly closed but message still does not disappear.

What I think is, that this is a door sensor problem which has stopped working.

Please help me in this regard.

Reset drum counter


I found this solution online for you:


Shut off the printer.

  • 2 Hold down the "Continue" button while opening the front door. Then turn on the printer.
  • 3 Keep the Continue button held down until only the "Error LED" is on then release the button. Close the door.
  • 4 The Continue button, Ready/Data, Toner Low, and Load Paper LEDs should all be lit up.
  • 5 Press "Cancel" a few times to cycle through the LEDs until just the "Toner Low LED" is lit.
  • 6 Press and hold the "Continue" button until the LEDs cycle through and release only when the LED stops at Toner Low.
  • 7 Turn the printer off and back on.

    We are getting error code 004-332 Restart Printer on our Dell 3100cn printer. We have tried unplugging and restarting print spooler but it still come up witht message when we try to print


    Hi


    This error code on Dell 3100CN occurs when toner cartridges are not seated properly and/or are not properly locked in. Turn off the printer and unplug it. Now, you need to open the front door and pull out the drum. Try moving the carousel and check if it moves freely. While moving the carousel back and forth try adjusting the cartridges. try to unlock the cartridges and lock them again.

    Now turn off the printer and turn it on after 1-2 min.s.

    Close front door message keep showing up every time I print and it will not print


    I've had this issue at our office. You need to perform a factory reset on the printer following the directions in the owners manual, or contacting Dell telephone support. (1.800.WWW.DELL)

    Error message, ''close BTR cover'' for Dell 3100cn


    The BTR cover is covered the fuser. If you open the rear door, it is located at the upper part, behind the metallic rod. The problem is the cover is installed unproperly: Its metal piece is not touched against the metal piece of the machine, so the machine does not "smell" the BTR cover.

    Close reg cover


    After researching the error online, I solved my problem by simply pushing the back cover of the unit closed; I didn't even know it had come open after I removed my jam.

    Hope this helps!
