Question about Dell 1700 Laser Printer
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.
