Question about Dell 1700 Laser Printer
In a dell laser printer (lp) 1700(n) there is a swinging arm in the top of the paper drawer with snall wheels on it. The arm is roughly 1 1/2 inches long and has 2 small rubber wheels on a small, motor driven stick at the end of the arm. The arm swings down from the roof of the paper tray and sits on the paper. Then, the wherls start to turn and push the paper towards the entrance to the rollers and imaging drums. The arm on my printer does NOT swing down, but does rotate the wheeks.
Try a temporary fix. Wipe the tires with a monitor wet wipes. Then replace the tires.

Our printer was offline for two years, wouldnt pick up paper needed to see if it worked, flipped the rollers and it works fine just a lot of build up from sitting though...

SOURCE: dell 1700 image drum
After you replace the imaging drum, you should reset the imaging drum's counter. To reset the counter, YOU MUST LEAVE THE DOOR OPEN AND THEN press and hold the Cancel button until all lights flash in sequence.

give this a try
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.

If you mean that the print cycle starts, but the "Paper Jam" lights up at the point where the paper starts to enter the drum, here's what I found worked.
The rollers that feed the paper come down onto the clean sheets on a plastic, spring-loaded arm Those rollers sometimes get too slick after a lot of use and they won't push the paper up and into the drum -- they slip like worn tires.
Solution: slip the rubber "tires"off the plastic roller "wheels" and reverse them, inside-out. Put them back on the wheels and the new rubber surface will probably push the paper just fine.
To do this you have to turn the machine upside down and remove the paper tray. I would unplug the unit and remove the drum as well before trying this.
