3000cn Color Laser PCL Error Code

After servicing my computer, my IT left with a non-working Dell 3000cn laser printer behind.


I have followed all the steps outlined in the Dell Support document for unpluging, unhooking, turning on/off, restarting, etc., to no avail.


I have also used the Windows troubleshooter which says the problem is fixed, but it is not.


Now there is no error code but the printer and computer will not communicate. If I send a document to the printer I get the yellow triangle and have to manually remove the document from the queue.


The most recent posts on this problem are from 2005 and do not help me at all. Can someone out there help? This computer is my work horse and I can't live without it.

Welcome to the Dell Community Forum .

 Please tell me which OS you are using and provide me with some basic information about your printer .

You can also try the following steps :

1,Unplug Power cable / USB cable and remove all the toners.

2.Press and hold down the CANCEL button for 30 sec.

3.Reconnect the Power and USB cable .

4.Check for any security software ( if anything is blocking the printing process )

5.Restart the system .

6.Please check the port setting if the correct  port is selected .( Right Click on printer Icon > Properties > Port .

7.Check device manager for any Conflict ( Imaging Devices )

8.If all looks fine , Please reinstall the printer drivers .
