First of all dirty rollers are not the cause of your problem as long as the printer is picking up the paper. Black marks or streaks on a DELL 1700 series printer are usually caused by the drum assembly which, in this model, is separate from the toner cartridge. There is no repair, you need to replace the drum assembly and perform the drum reset procedure. In very rare cases a buildup of residual toner on the fuser can cause marks as well, but I have never seen this on a DELL printer. To replace the drum: 1. After removing the paper tray, open the front of the printer. 2. Remove the toner cartridge by pushing down on the black release tab and pulling the toner up and out of the printer. 3. Pull the drum assembly straight out of the printer using the blue plastic handle. 4. Carefully unpack the new assembly and install in the printer. Be careful not to touch the photo-sensitive roller underneath. 5. Reinstall the toner cartridge, close the printer and insert the paper tray. 6. Perform the drum reset procedure exactly as follows:
power off and open front door hold down the continue button as you power on printer leaving front door open when error light comes on release continue and close front door. toner low, load paper, ready, and continue will all be lit. press cancel slowly 4 times or until just toner low lights up. each time you press cancel, the light sequence should change when just toner low is lit, press and hold continue button until lights cycle up and down in sequence. release continue.. toner low will be lit again turn printer off, wait 10 secs or so and then back on press continue button to print off settings page and check under cartridge information, photoconductor value is 0K (zero)
Run a half test. Put paper in the manual feed tray(tray 1). Send a print job to printer. When the paper gets 3/4 of the way into the printer, open the cover. Pull out the toner cartridge, look down at the sheet inside the printer. Does it have the streak on the left side? If yes...your toner cartridge is bad. If no...replace the fuser.
The transfer roller may have toner on it that is making that mess. Remove the toner and drum, look inside the printer, there is a grey roller towards the back of the printer. Is there toner on the right hand side that corresponds to the print out? If there is, cleaning it may only make it worse. Replacing it would be the best solution. You would want to make sure that the drum is clean after replacing the roller, if it is not ,then it will transfer to this roller once again.
There is a small plastic locking collar on the end of the spindle of the rubber Developer Roller (it's this that carries the toner to the drum). I'd bet that this locking collar is loose, misplaced, or missing.
Leaking toner on the right of the printer is usually caused by this.
The other possible cause is a partially detached seal underneath the Developer Roller.
Open the front cover by pressing the button on the left side of the printer and lowering the cover.
Press the button on the base of the toner cartridge assembly.
Pull the toner cartridge up and out using the handle.
Unpack the new toner cartridge.
****Rotate the cartridge in all directions to distribute the toner****
Install the new toner cartridge by aligning the white rollers on the toner cartridge with the arrows on the tracks of the imaging drum and pushing the toner cartridge in as far as it will go. The cartridge clicks into place when correctly installed.
Close the front cover.
Hi there sound to me like the toner cartridge is either faulty or leaking. Is it or has it been refilled if so remove cartridge vacuum out the insides of loose toner install brand new toner cartridge then test again. It cannot be the fuser unit as it will have quality problems all the time so try above and I hope it works for you.
Most likely you had a toner cartridge failuer leaving some of the ink and developer in the crevices above the paper feeder and its just trickling onto the paper.
It pretty much needs to have the cartrides taken out and thouroghly vaccumed.
Just takes patience and time to get it all removed.
Dont vacuum the cartridges, but the inside of the machine.
Pull your paper tray out and see if there is toner and developer trickling into it.
