Some questions first: -Where in the paper path is it jamming? -Is it always in the same spot or does it vary? -Roughly how many pages have you printed with this printer? -Did anything lead up to this or has it progressively gotten worse?

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.

SOURCE: Dell 1700n: Paper Loaded, Light still on, will not print

It sounds like the feeder wheels are going out. If you pull out your tray and look up underneath you will see a set of rubber wheels. THey are supposed to lower and feed the paper. I am sure they are still rolling but not lowering all the time. Mine are out completely, can still print by feeding a sheet at a time in the front load slot.

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.

My printer is leaving toner "tire marks" up and down the right and left side of the page margin as well as spilling uneven blotches of toner along the right side of the paper.


Your printer needs cleaning. Consult your printer manual on how to clean it. If you do not have the manual, you can usually download it from the printer manufacturer's website.

Paper jam


There is a sensor in the back that lets the printer know the paper has exited the fuser. It is probably broken off if paper is getting stuck back there.

Also check for paper remnants that are jammed. This may require removal of the fuser.

Printing size and shifting to the right


Hi there check the print margins within MS Word goto

  1. File
  2. Page Setup
  3. Margins
And check that they are OK. if not check that you haven't got the wrong size paper set in word. Same as above but select Paper size then check in the printer driver that you have the correct paper size selected and that you haven't selected a strange margin.

Hope this works
Thanks J

Margin problem???


I can just guess it has to do with the paper being fed. either you have the paper wrong or the paper settings to a different size then the actual dimensions of your print material.

Dell 1700n paper jam


Most larger printers like yours have an optical sensor that needs to have the paper pass by in order for it to send the "sent" signal. If the paper doesn't trigger that you get the paper jam error. look at this page http://www.fixyourownprinter.com/forums/laser/47953#1 it will tell you what and where to check for your problem. It has photos and videos. I hope this helps some.
