My Dell 3115cn MFP prints 3 blank pages between prints or copies if I print more than 1 copy how do I fix this? What is causing it?


I will do first a full printer cleaning, that mean take off all dust and anything can that can be inside the printer (ex.bugs and dirt accumulation).
Second try to locate the printer rollers and check if they are in good condition.Printer rollers need to be in good condition because those are the parts that move the paper inside the printer.
Also when you feed the papers into the feeder make sure you air the paper so they don,t stick together.

Keeps telling there is a paper jam


This particular 'paper jam' error on the Dell 3110/3115/3130 can often be caused by the paper not being picked up from the paper tray. The printer 'expects' to 'see' the paper pass various sensors during it's path through the printer. Each one has a 'time window'. If the paper is not seen to pass sensors at the correct timings, a paper jam is assumed.

Now - to cure the problem.

Just cleaning the (3 identical) pickup/separation/feed rollers in the paper tray area could be enough (they get a build-up of paper dust - can affect their effectiveness).

One of these rollers wears much quicker than the rest, and gets a pronounced flatspot. Replacement rollers are available via 'that' well known internet auction site.

My dell laser mfp 1815dn is saying the memory is full how do i erase it?


Write cmd in your start button(you maybe have to run as admin)
A black window appers
Then write stop spooler and press enter.
Wait until the window close.
Your print job is now erased.

If this does not help, upgrade your software from here:

Mac user can't scan on Dell MFP 1600n


That's because you can't scan over wireless. In order to scan, you need to be connected via USB, so I hope you've got a MacBook...

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.

Our Dell 3100CN pcl6 still prints, but it makes a grinding noise.


I had the same problem, tried to use the MFP tray, got jam, couldnt't close the rear door and used appropriate force... terrible noise with every print thereafter.
I fiddled with the roller at the back of the MFP tray. It didn't want to move much but after rotating it ~ 45 degrees back and forth it was in a more loose position. That seems to have solved it, no more noise!

1600n Printing an Extra Page everytime...


I had a computer experiencing the same problem.
I found under the printer properties that there was 2 drivers listed; both say "Dell Laser MFP 1600n PCL 6"
I swtiched the settings from one to the other.
The Printing Preferences also show more options.

  • Open the Printer(Control Panel->Printers>Dell MFP 1600n)
  • On the menu at the top click Printer->Properties
  • Click the tab at the top Labeled Advanced
  • Change the driver and Click Apply
This should fix your problem.
