Question about Dell 1700 Laser Printer

1 Answer

Dell 1700 has toner somewhere other than the rollers

I've cleaned the rollers and emptied the extra toner from the front compartment. Printing quality is still picking up toner from somewhere else. For example, the Header on the page is good at the top and on the page again at least once. Any ideas?

When I print a page black lines appear on the page making. Its like the toner is leaking or something. I don't know how to fix this issue. I've cleaned the inside of the printer several times and...


The toner is leaking. The toner cartridge has two compartments, one for new toner & another for waste toner. When the waste toner compartment is becoming full to its capacity it starts throwing extra toner outside of it. That is what is called toner leaking. If you can empty the contents of the waste toner compartment, your problem will be solved. One more thing if wiping blade for waste toner is worn out, it also leads to toner leaking.

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.

Rollers squeak.


This probably means the rollers are getting slick and a little glazed. Dell printers seem prone to this. It's harmless unless it is the primary (big) rollers that push the paper up into the toner drum. See my advice to the paper jam question for fixing that.

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 Computer printing issue


If the documents are actually printing, the problem is most likely with the printer(s). Poor print quality is almost always a result of problems with the printers or their printing supplies (toner, ink cartridges, paper, defects or debris on rollers creating streaking, etc.).
