Dell color laserjet 5110 cn will not print color documents. This network printer was printing color fine until yesterday mid-day when it started printing in black & white only. I tested by printing a...

This has to do with the document printing properties. When you are ready to print a document, choose properties and make sure you go through the printer settings under that software.
The test page only verifies the cartridges. The printer properties of the software control the printer during printing.

Dell 5100 cn printer - cyan color not clear - all others are good - anyway to clead heads etc.

Clean the heads, no. You could try a color calibration from the printer. If this does not help the issue, you may have a cyan cartridge with a bad seal. Replace the cartridge.

How do you print a test sheet on a dell 5100 cn of the various colors?

You can see the colors printed on this printer in three different methods. Well, there may be more, but I'll discuss three.

First, there is a menu screen on the printer. you can choose to print a test page from this menu. It should print in all the available colors.

Second, you can open the printers folder on your computer. Find this specific printer and look at its properties (right click, properties). Under the General tab, found in the lower right corner, there is a button to print a test page. This test page is a WINDOWS test page, and will display come of the colors on the Windows logo.

Third, you can open your favorite picture, whether it is one you took with your camera or a sample picture in the operating system. Click File, Print, and be sure the Dell printer is selected.

Good luck.

Printer will not print black ink

Seems to be a common fault with Kodak EasyShare 5100/5300

Contact Kodak Support and go though the following tests:

Remove and re-seat Printer Cartridge(s) - Done

Clean Printhead - Done

Calibrate Printer - Test Sheet Not Complete!

Run Computer Colour Test - Done

They will then send you a new Print Head.

Cleaning the Dell 3000 CN

Dell 3000 CN has no printheads, printheads are on inkjet printers, this is a color laser.

On a laser there is nothing that you can clean with a software.

If printer is not printing replace toner cartridge or try reinstalling drivers.

If printouts are dirt, then the printer must be manually be cleaned inside, see Clean your laser printer safely with these tips

Problems with color

There are a number of things to adjust color.
#1) reset all of the settings to default.
2) download the latest firmware and install
3) download the latest drivers and install

Once all of that is installed, there is a calibration test and setting you can do. This is all outlined in the owners manual for the printer (it is a rather long process)
The original install disk has the manual with all of the steps. If you don't have your install disks, you can download the manual from the Dell site. Just do a search on the printer, by printer make, or you can enter the service tag.

The control panel for the printer (the one you can bring up in Windows if you go to properties of the printer) has color settings and adjustments. There are also color adjustments in the printer. You can access them by entering the IP address of the printer in a web browser.

The paper you are printing on can also have an affect on the color.
