Question about Dell 5100cn Laser Printer
Where do I locate the controller card
The only way is to replace it. This costs around $290+.
Posted on Nov 07, 2008
The controller card on the 5100CN is located at the rear of the printer.
Rotate open the paper tray cover, remove the 3 screws securing the controller card assembly to the chassis. ( one at the bottom middle, one at each of the top two corners ), and slide the assembly towards you to remove.
NOTE: If you have a replacement Controller card that you are going to replace, you must migrate the existing NVRAM Chip from the old card to the new card. Even if the replacement card contains an NVRAM Chip, the old chip must be used in order to prevent an NVAM error.
Also ensure use of proper ESD Handling proceedures to prevent damage to the board and NVRAM Chip.
