Question about Dell 1700n Laser Printer
I just replaced the toner cartridge on a Dell 1700 and now have a very dark background on the page that is printing. I've checked the PCR drum and the inside of the printer for loose toner but that's not solving the problem.
Faulty (or wrongly) remanufactured cartridges can produce a 'background' to a print, which can be even across the page or have a mottled effect.
Do a printer self test page (press the arrow button).
put the old toner cartridge back in and do the same.
Does the background show with the old cartridge ?
If it does, its a drum unit problem, if not its a toner cartridge problem, and that should be under warranty if you've just replaced it.
