I have a Dell 5130cdn that has about 100000 copies and is nearing its duty cycle.  It is requiring more frequent color registration adjustments the older it gets.  Is this normal for Dell lasers or is this a symptom of something else?  If so, what part should I replace?

The manual states that:

"Manual Color Registration Adjustments are required such as when the printer is initially installed and after the printer is moved."

So this may be the sign of old age, but it also says that there is a way to automatically set the printer to do the registration adjustments itself.  Might give you some more mileage before you have to replace it.
