Dell 1700 printer will not print

The printer is running but the light on the panel indicates that paper is needed. Seems that the printer is not picking up the paper in the
tray to print.

    Thanks for your response.

    The problem is the rubber wheels are not catching the paper.

Hi albrecht,

i think u might have used ur printer without paper often . unplug the printer from system and switch it off.Replug it again on the system ant switch it on and see. Even then if it is not printing uninstall the drivers for printers and reinstall again and print.

Dell 1700 prints a page with parameters before every print job


Probably some sort of software glitch, I'd say. First thing to try is re-installing the software with the latest version. Here's the link to download if you need it:

Dell 1700 will not feed paper


If your Dell 1700 laser printer is not pulling paper all the way, try cleaning the pick up rollers.

To access the pick up rollers. Turn off the printer. Unplug everything from the back of the printer. Take out the toner/drum and set this aside out of the light (the drum is effected by light). Remove the paper tray. Set the printer on its backside. The rollers are located on the underside of the printer where you just removed the paper tray. You may have to move a blue flap to get at the rollers. Take a damp paper towel and clean these off. Another possible solution is to take the grey rollers off and turn them inside out and then place them back on the printer.

The pick up rollers should not be shiney, or cracked and dryed out. If they are, they will not pick up the paper to feed it into the printer. The tires should have "traction" to them so that they can grip the paper and feed it into the printer.

Once you have the tires cleaned off or turned inside out and placed back on reassemble the printer and try printing.

Dell 1700 is printing ALL black pages...


hmm..new cartridge? Check to see it's seated properly. And after replacing, go to the admin panel for the Dell printer, and check all the settings. Then, do a single test page, before doing a print run.

pickup rollers bad, you can try to clean them with rubber cleaner but it's best to have the rollers replaced.
