Question about Dell 1700 Laser Printer

2 Answers

I have 2 Dell model 1700n laser printers and they both stop feeding the paper from the tray to printer but you can hand feed one sheet of paper in the ajustable envelope feed opening and the printer will then print, but when you try using the paper tray it always stops printing and it displays "paper jam" evev though there is none. Could it be a problem with the roller that supplys the paper? or can you suggest a solution

Paper jams when it leave the tray


This printer is new model so probably there is a problem with paper sensor at registration roller or next one paper sensor in fusing unit(it depends where the sheet stops). To be sure please first clean as you can the paper feed roller in tray and also check the manual feeding. If you can feed on bypass tray, then the paper sensors are OK. Look for problem in tray or rubber roller

My D7460 will not feed paper The screen says load paper face down in main tray.


Usually this occurs when a printer has had fairly excessive use. This causes the rubber paper feed rollers to become shiny and then they are unable to grab the paper, or it grabs several sheets at the same time. Newer laser printers have now have grooved belt tracks to help prevent this problem.

The easiest way I have found is to BUFF the shiny tracks... Here´s how... Using a ladies nail file (sand paper type) Press the paper feed button to cause the rollers to slowly rotate and buff the rubber as it turns. Making sure no sand enters the rollers. If several sheets of paper feed at the same time. Pull them out and a trick to stop this happening is... to fan the paper before loading into the paper tray. The trapped air will allow the sheets to glide easier.

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.

Paper only half loads into machine then stops


Hi it sounds to me you paper feed rollers are worn down, these are the rubber tire looking things that pick up the paper, you may have to have them replaced or you could clean them with warm soapy water.

Paper jam


There is a sensor in the back that lets the printer know the paper has exited the fuser. It is probably broken off if paper is getting stuck back there.

Also check for paper remnants that are jammed. This may require removal of the fuser.

Dell 1700 Transfer Roller


These series printers have a typical problem of the paper pickup rollers wearing out resulting in jams, crooked feeds and partial feeds. a quick fix:

take the paper tray out, turn the printer on edge and locate those two rubber roller bands on the pickup arm. Peel them off, flip them inside-out and return them to the rollers. This restores thier sticky rubber side so the papper feeds properly.

Now if you are a heavy printer, you can order some of these from dell for the next time. Washing these in handsaop and water works sometimes too. never use alcohol.

Automatic Paper feed


Check the feeder roller inside the printer for any foreign substance stuck to the roller, this may cause it not to grip properly. You can also try a few sheets at a time and make sure the paper tray is gripping the paper, but not too hard. If this fails, the roller may be out of place somewhat, try to reposition it. Let me know how you get on.
