Dell says I low toner, replaced cartridge, same message


Unless your 'new' cartridge has a used chip, it's likely that the pagecount for the Photoconductor/Drum Unit is at the replace stage. The Drum unit has a small waste toner collection container, is this becomes over-full, waste toner 'spews' into the printer with dire effects. This is ONE of the reasons that drum units have a rated pagecount. You can reset the drum counter without actually replacing the drum, but this should be used as a short term measure ONLY, AND AT YOUR OWN RISK. The Photconductor reset procedure is as follows.

RESETTING DRUM PAGE COUNTER

1) Leave the power on, insert toner cartridge, and leave door open
2) Press the cancel button and hold till the leds flash
3) Release cancel button and close toner cartridge door

The printer has no way of knnowing that you have changed the Photoconductor Unit, unless you tell it (as there is not chip on the Photoconductor).

The Photconductor reset procedure is as follows.

2) Press the cancel button and hold till the leds flash

Have you checked the fuser?

A laser printer fuser assembly is the heating roller unit that melts and fuses the toner onto the paper. The fuser assembly is made up of a heating roller and a pressure roller.

The heating roller applies the heat to the toner on the printed page and the pressure roller presses and fuses the toner into the printed page. If it's bad and not heating properly, the print will be faint, which is what you describe. You may be able to remove and clean the fuser, but if the printer gets lots of use, it may just be worn out.

See this link for an idea of what it looks like and a price.

The Dell 1700 cartridge can leak from a failed mylar blade that sits against the Developer Roller.

The plastic locking ring on the and of the Developer roller spindle (of the toner cartridge) can come loose, or break (over time).

The drum unit has a relatively low capacity to hold waste toner, and all toner is not the same (waste toner shouldn't be re-used - it will just fill up the waste section of the drum even faster). Some toners are more efficient than others.

If you reset the 'replace drum' indication, without actually replacing it (or at least emptying it) you will soon have the drum over-full of waste toner, and the only other place it can go then, is inside the printer, and onto the paper.

Dell 1700 laser printer has Low toner and error lights flashing


Leave the printer on. Open the front and hold down the cancel button until all the lights are flashing in sequence. Close the front while still holding the cancel with the lights flashing and then release the cancel button. This should reset it.

Thanks

Dell printer 1700


First unplug power cord and plug back after 10 mins.
If problem persists, then it is probably a toner error, if the toner is nearly finished. In this case you will see the led flashing only when is printing. Sooner or later the printer will start printing blank or faded pages and you will need to change toner
When is not toner, with same symptoms as above, it can be drum error, in this case printer will keep printing but shows flashing light, at a certain point you will need to change drum kit.

If light flashes and printer does not print, then it is either paper jam inside, or one of errors above at final stage, or one of the door not well closed (check them all), or printer faulty (fuser, heads mechanics etc.), in this last case call service.
