Re: Dell 1320c color laser printer

Sounds like you have one or more damaged drums. I've noticed that Dell doesn't have these available for online purchase, but you can get one thru Dell spare parts. The part number is DT574. It's the entire assembly (all 4 drums) and is called the "PHD".

The 4 purplish things you see when you open the front are the 4 xerographic drums. The black film device that lays down when the front door opens is the transfer belt. The xerographic drums are sensitive to light and very sensitive to physical damage. If you see scratches, pits, smudges or anything on one or more of these drums, you will certainly encounter print quality issues.
