I am not able to change ip on my Dell 1720dn


I did a forced reset to default... Open the front panel, hold down the green and orange buttons, turn on the printer. Wait as the lights cycle until the error light remains on, then close the front panel. A new config page will print, and then you will be able to connect to the printer using the new DHCP address that has been assigned.

I need to print 5X8 index cards on my Dell 1720dn. No matter how I load the cards, it says I'm out of paper


Are you using the manual feed slot in front of the printer and setting the paper size properly in your software? 3x5 is supported by Dell so this should work.

Paper jammed (Dell lase Printer 1720dn


Open the back cover and look for paper wrapped around a roller back there. That is the most common cause of the issues with this machine. The other thing you can try is to push down on the little flaps where the paper comes out of the printer. These get stuck and need cleaning/replacement all the time in the later life of these models (1720's).

2550Ln will not print


If the supply lights are not lit, then you may have a paper jam. Check the rear cover. Also sometimes paper jam lights come on even though the paper has not jammed, just misfed from the cassette. Please let me know any further details.

Paper Jam error


Try feeding paper from the front, if it works, your paper pickup rollers maybe having problems (dusty/worn-out).
