Question about Dell 1720dn Laser Printer
I have the same problem. The first sheet only has
?Z@ troofpaN printed on the first line, then the other sheets are normal. I tried reloading the print driver to no avail. Enough people have this problem to justify Dell fixing it.
This is a issue with the printer drive that windows is holding, not the printer. To Un-install your printer drive the correct way, goto add/remove programs, and un-install the printer there, then open up your printer control panel and right click where there is no printer. In the right click menu click server properties, then click the drivers tab, then remove the 1720/1720dn drivers there. A system restart will be necessary in most cases before it will let you remove the drivers(the Microsoft print spooler is to blame here for that). If this still doesn't work for you, then install a hp laserjet 4 driver and see if it does the same thing. if not, then it is something with the driver/spooler, if so, then it is the MCU of the printer, and you might want to look at buying a new printer.

Remove the toner and the paper tray and open every door on the printer. Take a can of air and blow out every nook and cranny in the printer. Check and carefully wipe all rollers. There a fuser kit in the printer, likely in the back. If you feel comfortable with it, remove the fuser kit and use a can of air to continue cleaning. Reassemble the printer and run a few test pages, it may look like a bigger mess for the first few pages (up to 25). However, as you run the pages the print should clear up. If you still have a streaks on the pages, you will likely need to order an maintenance kit from dell. This kit should include the fuse, rollers and other replacement parts for the printer.
I hope this has helped you
