Question about Dell 5110cn Laser Printer

Toner smearing all over page

We are having a problem with our Del 5110 Magenta toner. It seems to be spreading all over the page. Not to the point that we can't see what's bein gprinted.... but it almost seems we need to clean the inside of the printer somewhere. We have no idea where to start. We purchased the printer from someone who had no problems with it at all. PLEASE HELP. Thanks!

The problem with this printer is not the fuser. It is one of the following:

1) Imaging drum. The drum contains 4 imaging drums. One for each color. They are independent of one another on the initial image transfer and only combine after the initial image is developed. This IS a user replaceable consumable and should be tried first. If this does not resolve the problem see #2.

2) It is the magenta photo developer unit. This part is NOT a user replaceable part, and requires quite a bit of work to get to. The photo developer is located in the developer frame assembly, which can be seen behind the imaging drum when it is removed. The top cover, left side cover, HVPS, and all 4 toner feed tubes have to be removed in order to remove the photo developer frame, and after the frame is removed, the photo developer itself has to be removed from the frame and replaced. reverse disasembly to put back together.

Usually the tell tale sign for a leaking developer, other then full sheets of light color, is extream excess toner dust behind the imaging unit.

Get a new printer (hopefully a warranty replacement) is the only fix I have found. I have 10 of these printer. On average, at least 1 of them will develop this exact issue each month. Nothing ever fixes it. We have tried new drums, new fusers, and techs to come out and replace the developer unit. The replacement of the developer fixes it for a few days, but the problem comes back. There is something that causes it to go bad that Dell has not figured out yet.

Replacing the transfer roller unit has fixed this in 5110cn printers for me. There is sensor in the printer that triggers an error when the transfer roller is full of toner and needs to be replaced. However, I believe this circuitry is often faulty or that the transfer rollers do not work correctly even though the sensor circuit thinks the transfer roller is ok (not full). Try the following diagnostic. If you get an H in the end, replace the transfer roller unit:

Laser printer makes light clicking noise when idle


When idle is potentially the fuser unit, after heating and cooling. However the print quality issue associated with the clicking sound could indicate an electrical issue. The HVPS maybe faulty causing the print quality issue (due to dependant parts) and the electrical click. In any case I would recommend calling Brother and finding the nearest authorised service agent.

HP printer psc 2210 all in one


Chances are that you didn't lock down the scanner when you moved the unit. You can attempt to open the unit and move the scanner bar manually to reset it. HPs are very difficult beasts when it comes to their power up check out. It must be fully functional...including all cartridges...to work in most cases. Good luck.
