We had a Dell Engineer come out for this prob and it basically involved replacing every working part inside it until it worked! :-(

He said he believed that it might have been toner leaking out, but I don't believe that because of the precision of the dots on every printout.

I hope urs is in warranty!

My printer is reading check alignment, is it because my color cartridge is out of ink?


No, that's not what it means.
If printer heads are not aligned, CMYK colors (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and blacK - the usual colours in a printer) will not print in the correct place.
Assume a dark grey dot is to be printed. For this C, M and Y colored dots have to be placed exactly on the same spot. But if heads are not aligned, the three color dots will not be exactly in the same place. Therefore you will see Cyan, magenta and Yellow dots adjacent to each other instead of one dark grey dot.
It is always a good idea to align the print heads every time a new cartridge is installed.

My printer is printing dots on my pages


Question..... are you using genuine Dell Toner in the printer? If not, that's likely the root cause of this problem.

You can try having the printer cleaned

Good Luck

Documents are printing fine but the right hand edge has black dots on it like 6-8 sapced out along the right hand edge.


check your print cartridge and your fusing element. you will need to dead cycle the printer to check the cartridge (print a document, when it is half way through turn off the printer, check the toner cartridge for your dots.) are you able to see your fusing element by opening the rear door? check the edges for dots on the fusing element. also there is a transfer roller or belt in your printer, that may also be dirty.

If you are getting single color dots but all 4 colors the issue has to be somewhere comon to all 4 which usually is the Transfer Belt. i would look for some sort of damage to the belt or something sticky on it.

Printing CMYK dots twice on every print


Hi, As it's printing two little strips (like a 1/4inch) of CMYK dots (one of each color all you need to check the toner cartridge drum, try to wipe the toner drum with a damp cloth on each color cartridge. Secondly check the fuser assembly drum if it has any mark on the drum, try to use a mild isopropyle alchohol to wipe the dirt mark them try printing. this will resolve the issue. if still issue persists then change the color cartridge one by one. This will definitely resolve the issue.
