Question about Dell 1710n Laser Printer
Each time I try to print an envelope it automatically says paper jam.
Are you sure it is the "paper jam" light that is lit? My "load paper" light always lights when I try to print an envelope, but if you press the "continue" button it prints.

Not an ideal solution, but, Dell printers were not desined with envelopes in mind. (I used to work there)
My solution, if you value your time at all, pick up an HP personal laser printer. Costs a little more, but the time saved will much outweigh the inital cost.
You CAN get the dell printer to work a few times maybe but consistently is not a possility....
