My dell 1130 has a steady red light

Maybe there is problem with toner cartridge (maybe it is empty or problem with the chip), paper jam or some mechanical problem. Try to take out the toner cartridge and put it back. If the blinking still exist try to replace the chip (or refill the toner cartridge) or check for paper jam. Maybe there is small part of paper - look carefully.
good luck.
Good luck

I don't have the manual and the red light is on. Is that the toner needing replacing and how do I do it?

Here are the things that a steady red light may indicate (from the Owner's Manual):

led-erroron17.jpg A paper jam has occurred. To solve the problem, see "Clearing Jams in the Paper Tray". The front cover is open. Close the front cover. The top cover is open. Close the top cover. The paper tray is empty. Load paper in the tray. See "Loading Paper". A toner cartridge is not installed. Install a toner cartridge. See "Installing the Starter Toner Cartridge".
• A paper jam has occurred. Check the paper tray area.
• The front cover is open. Close the front cover.
• The top cover is open. Close the top cover.
• The paper tray is empty. Load paper in the tray.
• A toner cartridge is not installed. Install a toner cartridge.

Paper jammed in fuser

Pull the toner cartridge out and leave the door open to relieve the pressure on the rollers.
Grasp the paper close to the fuser and pull gently and steady.

I have a sheet of paper jammed solidly in the printer - how do I get it out - help, please!

Janet, have you tryed removing the printer cartridge? The paper is usually underneath the toner assembly. Be real careful and use steady pressure and pull gently to get teh paper out. You don't want to **** on it, creating more jams. Look around each roller with a flashlight for small pieces that may have come off also.

How do i get the paper out; it is jammed with 2 pieces.

With firm steady pressure pull the paper out. Take the paper tray out and see if its clear behind it . Open the rear feed and check it also. If necessary remove toner cartridge and check there.

Printer dosen't print

If you remove the toner cartridge and do not see jammed paper, it's probably jammed in the FUSER. Repost and I can help you remove the fuser.

E120 won't print. Orange toner light is on - but the toner is nearly new ...

This problem is caused by an imitated toner............ All you need to do is change it to the old cartridge and see if the light will not be stable. Well the solution i guess is simple............. just go to get a new original toner and it should work well. Hope this helps.
