Tip & How-To about Office Equipment & Supplies
Here's a quick tip. If your Dell 17XX series (not confirmed for newer than 1710dn printers) is no longer picking up paper from the tray, it MAY be from worn out rollers. Try this tip to get it going while you wait for a replacement roller to get to you:
1 - remove the paper tray
2 - remove toner
3 - flip printer upside down (exposing the rollers)
4 - remove the rubber on the roller
5 - invert it. (turn it inside out)
6 - replace rubber back onto roller (still inverted)
7 - test print.
If this doesn't work then the problem is likely a paper setting (set to legal or something) Good luck.
