Try cleaning the large roller at the front. Use a q-tip and alcohol.

Tip

Dell 1700 1710 series printer. Paper not picking up trick....


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.

Printer won't pick up the paper in the tray to print. Keep getting out of paper message


First check if the feed rollers are 'Slick" with paper dust, if they are ,clean then with 409 on a cloth rag, and scrub till u dont see the white paper dust on the rollers, let the rollers dry, then reset the printer, by turning it off. then turn it back on ,reinstall the paper and begin printing again.

Load paper


Hi,

To resolve this issue pick one blank sheet and insert it in the tray and try to print self test page. If the printer prints self test page then load the paper properly and try to print. If self test page won't print then check the paper settings.

I have an Easy Share printer dock series 3 that has paper loaded


Dirty rollers? I had the same problem and think the rollers are no longer sticky enough to pick up the paper due to a coating of dust... maybe cleaning the rollers would work?

Paper jam light is on with no sign of a jam printer wont print.


1-paper is most likely stuck in the fuser, (where it exits and gets hot) you will have to remove it
2-it would be better to clean the rollers w/ alcohol then inside out.
