My Dell 1720 copies tells me it has stopped because the photoconductor kit has stopped working. I just replaced everything and keep getting the same error.


If the drum cartridge has not been replaced, it must be replaced before resetting the counter to avoid damaging the printer.
  1. Power off the printer.
  2. Open the front door.
  3. With the front door open, hold down the Continue button while powering on the printer.
  4. Keep holding continue until all lights start flashing then release the button.
  5. Once only the Error light is on, close the front door.
  6. At this point Continue, Ready/Data, Toner Low, and Load Paper should all be lit.
If the previous set of steps did not go as described then do not continue. Please complete the previous set of steps again.
  1. Wait for the printer to make a sound as though it is about to print something. (This may take a minute.)
  2. Press Cancel 4 times SLOWLY (1 second between presses) to cycle through lights until ONLY the Toner Low light is on. (It may take more than 4 presses.)
  3. Press and hold Continue until all the lights cycle through and go back to Toner Low
  4. Cycle power on the printer.
  5. Press and release the Continue button to print out the settings page. Under Cartridge Information it should read Photoconductor: 0K

DELL Laser printer 1700/1700n


All flashing lights for the Dell 1700 series (1700, 1710, 1720 including those that have n or dn as part of the model) printers is a service related error. When double pressing the continue button twice quickly, the printer will give a secondary error code, narrowing down the printer part being effected. It is possible to even narrow the error code down even futher by double pressing the continue button and taking note of which combination of lights come on, wether they are steady or blinking. Most generally when this series of printers, when you get all flashing lights, something major is going on with the printer. It could be pointing to the fuser, or main board, etc. You can call dell warranty support and they will help narrow down which part is being effected. Most generally, what is being effected is not cost effective to get fixed if you are no longer under warranty.

Problem with printer all buttons flashing


All lights flashing is an error indication. to learn the problem you'll need a service manaual. The procedure is to hit the Continue button twice - see which lights flash (secondary code) and consult the manual. Then repeat that step and look up the final code (tertiary code) in the manual. This should be the problem.

T420 error lights


does this occur after while, during or after printing?

from what application are you printing?

sounds like the print you are sending may be too big for the memory of the printer, or it can not recognize the file type.
