Question about Dell 1710n Laser Printer

1 Answer

Dell 1700 Hi, my Dell 1700 printer is being ridiculous and says it has a paper jam...um no such thing. I've been cleaning it for the last hour every way possible and it still has "Continue" and "Paper Jam" lights blinking slowly. Any ideas?

    Mine prints about 2/3 of the page then stops with a "paper jam". I clear the paper out the back and have to turn it off and back on to clear it.

I've experienced this in the past and found a paper jam in the back feed roller and had to take the unit apart to retreave document. Try doing this (only if no longer under warranty) there are a few screws in the front and it should be able to come off easily.

Dell 1700 will not feed paper


If your Dell 1700 laser printer is not pulling paper all the way, try cleaning the pick up rollers.

To access the pick up rollers. Turn off the printer. Unplug everything from the back of the printer. Take out the toner/drum and set this aside out of the light (the drum is effected by light). Remove the paper tray. Set the printer on its backside. The rollers are located on the underside of the printer where you just removed the paper tray. You may have to move a blue flap to get at the rollers. Take a damp paper towel and clean these off. Another possible solution is to take the grey rollers off and turn them inside out and then place them back on the printer.

The pick up rollers should not be shiney, or cracked and dryed out. If they are, they will not pick up the paper to feed it into the printer. The tires should have "traction" to them so that they can grip the paper and feed it into the printer.

Once you have the tires cleaned off or turned inside out and placed back on reassemble the printer and try printing.

pickup rollers bad, you can try to clean them with rubber cleaner but it's best to have the rollers replaced.

Dell 1700 often jams in one spot


Just in case you don't know where the rollers are in the paper cassette...remove the paper cassette drawer and he rollers are at the top of the entrance to the drawer. There are two rollers, grasp one between your fingers and gentle pull the roller down to see the mechanism better. Rotate both rollers and you may find a build up of dirt/grime on either or both. Simple clean them with an appropriate wet cleaner & lint free cloth.

Dell 1700n Laser Printer Jam trouble


If it?s always in the same spot then you can narrow your search for the problem. -Look where the leading edge of the paper is getting jammed up for an obstruction, especially if the paper is folded in an accordion fashion. Look closely, I?ve fixed many a paper jam by pulling out a corner of a page stuck in a recess. -If the paper path is clear then the next thing I would suspect is the paper you are using. -Try new paper that isn?t bowed, folded or curled. Before inserting into the paper try flex it back and forth along the width and length, then insert making sure to slide the two side guides and the back guide until they fit snugly against the stack of paper. -Other things to check are the rollers where the leading edge of the paper is getting stuck. Make sure they are clean. -Also make sure your toner cartridge is inserted into the printer correctly. If you have a spare try using that, sometimes cartridges can drag on the paper.
