Question about Dell 1710 Laser Printer
Paper Jams after it passes the paper bin! New Drum! Have no clue, maybe a sensor? It won't pass the first set of rollers upon enter printer from bin!
Preface; I am a support tech for a major gov't facility and we have hundreds of the Dell printers and PC's.
2 possible solutions. I have seen both. Items can get stuck in the paper path in the guide area, this is just before the pressure roller plate, this is the plastic piece under the fuser roller assy. The rounded plastic piece that guides the paper from the tray into the print area can have paper scraps or objects such as rubber bands, staples or paper clips caught inside of it. This can happen if any of these things get in the paper tray. I just pulled a rubber band out of one of these today.
Many times it is the paper sensor that is located under the pressure roller plate. After you remove the fuser asy you can see a plastic 'finger' that is just right of center in the pressure roller. There is another one a little further in and it is more center line on the 'floor' of the printer.
I have seen these go out with fair regularity. If you remove the paper tray and turn the printer on its side you can find the body of this sensor under the feed roller/arm asy that drops down into the tray to start the feed process. It has some white, plastice type material and wires running out of it. It is held in by a single screw. There is another sensor of the same design located by the pivot point for the feed arm. If the paper gets by the first sensor then stops, it is the second sensor that is out.
