IF this is a high use printer, there are some other things that might be in need of attention. There is a corona wire, drum and drum wiper that are consumables too.

On my Dell 3110cn printer, I keep getting the following error message: "Error C Cart 093-919" I bought this refurbished yellow toner cartridge from a reputable dealer on EBAY and it is basicaly...


remanufactured toners, or off brand toners are sometimes not compatible. I would contact the dealer you bought the toner from and tell them the cartridge is defective and demand an exchange or refund.

Dell 3100n keeps saying "Change Black Toner" even


Before installing a new toner, put a disposable towel over the ink toner exit, and shake your toner lightly back and forth and up and down. Make sure your toner cartridge is in the open position before replacing it in your printer.

If you are using a refillable ink cartridge, make sure you are resetting the cartridge using the method described by the refillable manufacturer.

If this does not answer your question please request more information before voting on my answer. I will try to find more information about your toner cartridge that will help you futher.

Toner leaking ink on one side of paper pretty bad


There could just be a lot of toner inside the printer, but it could also be the drum unit (which also collects the waste toner) is so full that it is leaking.

This typically happens when the 'replace drum' indication is reset without actually replacing the drum.

If you have reset this without replacing the drum, and the print count is in excess of 30,000, you probably just need to replace the drm unit.

Yellow Toner Ink Spotting


Take a tissue and clean the area where the toner is. Do not use anything wet at all. Just a soft tissue. Re-install toner and try again to print. If the problem continues, it may be a leaking toner catridge. The cartridge has a cleaning blade built in and it may be deffective. Try a new toner cartridge if so.

Yellow toner will not print


If you let the yellow toner get to the point where the toner cartridge was totally empty, there is one thing you can try which may help. From the "menu", select "maintenance", then go to "clean developer" and choose the yellow. The machine will then churn for a few minutes. What happens is there is a tube that moves the toner from the toner cartridge down to the developer unit ( which is behind the imaging drum). If the toner was allowed to totally run out, there is an area of the tube which may have little or no toner in it. Each time you print, there is a spring auger within the tube that draws the toner to the developer. By running the "clean Developer" it turns the auger and re primes the tube.

If this does not fix the issue, and you have replaced the imaging unit, then the yellow developer is defective and would need to be replaced. This involves quite a bit of work and is not considered user replaceable.

Pages full of toner / toner streaking


First off, this is a comment from a random person who may or may not know ALOT about these printers and toner/printer design in general. All toners are not designed to the same specification. Toner is a combination of plastic "pigment" and iron like shavings to make it magentically attracted to the electrical charges within the unit. Different toners conform to different grades and mainly size of the particles within the blend. The manufacturer doesnt only recommend that you use their toner to make them money, yes of course it makes money, but its because when the unit is designed it is designed to use a certain grade of toner, trust me if you put the non-branded toner vs the branded toner under a microscope you would see quite a difference. Often the non-branded toner is much larger in particle size (obviousely because its cheaper to make at this spec). This causes a variety of issues from excess toner not being cleaned off of developer rollers, IDT rollers, or clogging of toner dispenser tubes in the unit and the micro filters contained at the toner dispenser assy and developer assys. Also as for the issue not changing when switching to dell branded toner - the dispenser tubes within this unit contain up to 500-1000 pages worth of toner, making no change in toner you make immediately visible. Also depending on the damage caused by the previous toner, it may not be able to be fixed until all the components in between the toner and final delivery (drum cart) are replaced. In this case more than likely the toner dispenser assy, all developer assy's, and drum cartridge need to be replaced, and than be sure to stick with factory branded toner :)

Laser printer problem


For starters aftermarket cartridges are just not like the new ones from Dell. I quit using aftermarket ones long ago to save these headaches, with Dell you can get on Dell Chat and they will gladly help with issues like this. Try that with "Bob's Printer Cartridge and Music Rental" you won't get anywhere.
