Re: All Signal Lights On

I had the same problem. In my case all I had to do was unplug it from the computer and plug it back in. I had just installed a new program, I thin that had something to do with it. I used this site from Dell to figure out the problem Copy that into your web browser and at the bottome of the page where is says search for solutions, just type in all front panel lights lit. It worked for me. Hope it helps

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.

Dell 1710

If that is the only light:
Remove the toner cartridge and firmly shake it from side-to-side and front-to-back several to use the
remaining toner, and then reinsert it and continue printing. Repeat this procedure multiple times until
the print remains faded. When the print remains faded, replace the toner cartridge

If not let me know.

We had a printer with the same problem, and turning the pickup wheels inside out (on the back of the paper tray) solved the problem.

Hope this helps.
