I had a computer experiencing the same problem. I found under the printer properties that there was 2 drivers listed; both say "Dell Laser MFP 1600n PCL 6" I swtiched the settings from one to the other. The Printing Preferences also show more options.
Open the Printer(Control Panel->Printers>Dell MFP 1600n)
Log into the web interface for the printer. On the left, click "Printer Settings" Select "Setup Menu" Change the top option, "Emulation" to "PS3" This fixed the problem for me printing from win7, Vista, and Linux.

I know this is an old post, but I still feel it will help to post my solution in case anyone else has this problem. I deleted the Samsung 4725fn PCL6 driver from each computer and added a Universal Print Driver from the Samsung website locally to each PC that connected to this printer via the network. So far, the Universal Driver has solved the End Of Job (EOJ) page from printing after each print job. Hopefully this will help someone else.
Sounds like a driver problem. Some printers require eoj (end of job) character & will wait forever.
Do a test print (search internet on how to print status page- usually button press combo). If you get a printout, you know the print engine is good.
If the printer is able to parse text, then try sending an ascii test file & see if anything prints. This will tell you whether it's a comm issue or rendering issue.
your printer paper size shorter than your PC dos-program print size setting, example: if use a letter size paper to print a A4 size file which should occur two paper go out..
so you need check your PC print setting or take a presetting paper size, make a size match between PC program and paper in printer .
hope you fix it, please take a rating let me know how much helped you thanks!
I would move the printer to another computer. See if the problem follows. I have seen the issue a few times with issues in normal.dot but also in other office applications.
Problem I'm fighting with on my 1720 is its printing extra pages between pages. basically print a 5 page document and get an 8/9 page final with the extra blank pages. Think its a user error but could be machine related. going to try it on another PC and see what happens.
well..that EOJ line, is possibly farther down in the program settings, and is like a page break. the Dell is only doing what it's reading, so the answer is in the programming of the application. Perhaps you might query that company about how well that program interfaces with the Postscript quality printer you have? check your computer warranty here for FREE
