Well from Dell's official information it says contact them. Had you recently moved the printer prior to this message? If you went from a really warm house to a cold car, and back again, this may have been the source of the condensation in the printer. It sounds like you have done the recommended actions of letting the printer sit in a dry room. The next course of action is to contact Dell for repair options. Below is the official Dell information.Message:006-370Restart PrinterContact SupportIfMessageReturnsWhat the message means:Condensation may have occurred inside the printer.Dell's Recommendation:Do not use the printer for more than one hour.If this does not solve the problem, contact Dell.See "Contacting Dell" in the Owner's Manual.

Relist: Incomplete answer.
Thank your for your reply. However, I don't think you gave me any information that I did not already have especially considering that all recommended steps have been followed except for contacting Dell. I really need help in fixing the printer, and if contacting Dell (again) is your best answer, then it s not actually getting the printer up and running.

I was hoping for a little more "fixing" help from justanswer.com., and am a bit dissapointed.

This error usually indicates that the fuser is failing and needs to be replaced. The fuser is the part of the machine that melts the toner onto the page as it moves through the printer.

Please note that not all issues can be fixed online.

The steps you were given may have confirmed the only solution is repair.

If that was the case please click "Accept”.

Thanks! I thought that you had solved the problem for sure...but, I put a fuser in my machine from another working printer, and got the same message. Although my fuser does look very worn, and probably needs replacing anyway, do you have another suggestion?
Expert:  Freddy M. replied 2 years ago.
Remove your fuser, toner, andthe drum. Turn the machine off and unplug it. Clean the entire inside of the machine. Then wait at least 30 minutes and reinsert everything with it off. Turn it back on and it should recheck all the parts.
