Are you using actual dell toner catridge or a 3rd party/remanufactured cartridge. 3rd party products do not always match in color. It is also possible that your printer needs to be calibrated which it should do automatically, or you can usually run from the built in menus on the printer control panel.h

    What you may be seeing is a difference between what your spreadsheet says is yellow and what the printer thinks is yellow. To test this, open up paint and pick the obvious yellow color there and put a block on the page and print it. If it is yellow then something in your spreadsheet is causing a different color to show. This can often be the difference between pantone color numbers.

My dell 5100cn printer is not printing red tones at all. Everything comes out in green tones. Has new toner cartridges and drum. What can I do?


The M6090 Magenta Developer is failing. It has lost it's magnetism. So the toner isn't ready to be transferred.

The Cyan Developer G6593 or Yellow Developer H6682 may be failing too, because it can't dependably hold all it's toner. One of those is probably bad too.

This can be any of rthe following depending on the position iof the lines on the page. You need to establishe the position of the lines relative to the top of each page and this determines which of the following component will cause the problem

Dirty or damaged developer roller.
Dirty or damaged charging roller.
Dirty or damaged cleaning roller.
Dirty or damaged developer DSD wheels. These wheels are located on the outer ends of the color toner cartridge and appear as a black bushing.
Dirty or damaged transfer roller.
Dirty or damaged transfer drum.

All of them need inspecting and cleaning

Prints only blue and pink


There seems to be an electrical problem with the yellow toner. Check all the electrical contacts that make contact with the yellow toner. They may be just dirty or they may be bent. If they look good then the could be a problem with the power supply of the printer or the engine board.

Horizontal Striping Problem on a Dell 5100cn


As you have just replaced the drum you may have a faulty drum unit put old one back in a test if lines go way then return drum to store and get a replacement. If they do not go the check the toners and the fuser unit.
