Change your toner cartridge. A properly working toner cartridge will never leave that much toner lying around. The white lines are an indication that either the toner is low, or the mag roller is defective.

Problem with Dell 1720 printer


Hello

You have to check couple things in this case.

Ensure that the printer cover is closed.
  1. Remove the toner cartridge.
  2. Firmly shake it side-to-side and front-to-back several times to redistribute the toner.
  3. Reinsert the toner cartridge, and continue printing.
Repeat this procedure multiple times until the print remains faded. When the print remains faded, replace the toner cartridge.

The imaging drum is approaching full and needs to be replaced. Order a new imaging drum.

Starts off faded


If you do several test pages it should eventually clear up. If you get new Dell cartridges this will likely go away immediately. Dell carts have a tendency to "sludge up" if the printer remains idle too long, so print something every other day. Also, don't use refilled Dell carts, they may be good at first, but they are old and usually never last long as they should.

Print quality: dark faded, but continuous


Open top cover and remove toner, shake toner cartridge and try a test print. IF image good then problem is low toner level in cartridge.

Dell Laser Printer 1720dn Will only print test pages. When attempting to print a document, I click on 'Print', and the command is sent to the printer que, but the printer doesn't print. I've tried deleting...


Check that the correct printer is set as default. Also use File Print so that the selected printer is shown rather than using the Print button. If the test pages are being printed from the computer then the communication is working.

Light or Faded Areas in Solid Color Prints


If the issue is occuring in the same place on all prints, try the imaging drum (can't remember if this printer even uses one) or the transfer belt/roller (not sure which it uses). If you phone Dell support, they should run you through troubleshooting and send you either of those parts free of charge if you are under warranty. If not, buy them anyways; they don't degrade over time (if kept in the dark) and can be saved for when the currently installed one runs out if you don't need it to fix this issue.
