Question about Dell 1700 Laser Printer

1 Answer

My dell laser printer 1700 is in dire need of repair. The swing arm rotates the wheels but does not engage in the swinging down part. everything else is in mint condition. PLEEEEEEASE HELP!!!!

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.

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.

SOURCE: paper jam ,no paper jam found Dell 1815dn

give this a try

  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
  3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
  4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
  5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
  6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
  7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
  8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
  9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
  10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved.



alternative :
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.

SOURCE: who can fix my printer from paper jamming?

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.

Good luck.

How do i view 2010 rear axle assy street bob


Get hold of a service manual OR go to dealer and ask for photocopy of the relevant parts breakdown picture page.

Right side you have axle going through swing arm into a short spacer, through right wheel bearing, internal spacer, left wheel bearing out the left side through a longer spacer, and then the swing arm and then on the axle you will have a washer, cone nut and an "E" clip. Inside the swing arm ends you have the belt adjustment pieces that normally would not come out of the swing arm ends. And of course on the right side you would also have the brake caliper mounting and support arm.

I have aligned the chain (every couple of months I have to tighten the chain , does it stretch that much!) and when I'm driving the chain noise is louder than the engine . Is this normal??


Raise the rear wheel off of the ground. Spin the rear wheel by hand while running the chain over your hand (wear a surgical glove or use a rag). If the chain gets tight and then loose it has stretched and needs to be replaced. If it is an older Honda (70's), unbolt the rear shocks and see if the swing arm moves from side to side. If this is the case you also need new swing arm bushings. Another sign that the swing arm bushings are bad is if the chain is banging against the swing arm while you are driving down the road.

My Hp colorlaserjet 37ooDN is showing the error : 59.C0 Pl. HELP


Hi,
59.C0 Error Displayed on Control Panel Remove all the print cartridges from the printer so the right swing guide will be visible and check for the parts described in the photos below.
If the right side swing guide does not go all the way back, the 59.C0 alienation error will be displayed on the control panel. A plastic part on the swing guide could be missing.
See photo below where the three circles are on the right side of the printer.
Figure 1: Right swing arm assembly
37001See photo for details of the part. Call-out 1 in the photo below shows the parts in place, while Call-out 2 shows the missing part. (The part looks like an upside-down t.)
Figure 2: Missing part causing 59.C0 error
370021 - Part in place
2 - Part missing
Another cause for a 59.C0 error can be the black sliding lock is broken, out of place, or missing the spring. (See figure below) This can cause 59.C0 errors or 10.92.XX errors.
Figure 3: Right swing frame assembly
37003Replace the swing guide. Please look for the missing part in the printer so it will not cause other issues from movement to other parts of the printer.
If the part in the call-out is present, close the door slowly and observe the right side swing arm. It should close uniformally with the left side swing arm. If not, arrange for service on the printer and replace the right swing arm.

Error 59 co in 5550DN


Hello thanks for using fixya

59 C0 error code usually affects the printer motor. The problem can range from a couple of issues that occur within the printer's motor. It can also be a cartridge issue. Depending on the printer and which manual the user is referring to, the solution to fix this error varies.
  1. Error code 59 C0 due to problems with printer motor
  2. Error code 59 C0 due to problems with cartridges
  3. Error code 59 C0 due to broken back sliding lock

Error code 59 C0 due to problems with printer motor:
This is referred to as "developing disengaging motor rotation error" Most likely, this problem points to an issue with the function of the DC controller either it has failed or it has affected the developing disengaging assembly.The solution is quite simple and you may fix the error in a matter of few steps.
The first step is to reconnect the J16 connectors that are used for the developing disengaging motor to the J1100 connectors that are used for the DC controller PCB (that is the printer circuit board of the DC controller).After connecting these two connectors to each other,you must replace the developing disengaging drive assembly directly.The final step is to replace the DC controller PCB, after which the printer is to be recalibrated.

Error code 59 C0 due to problems with cartridges:
Another more complex problem that leads to the 59 C0 error code is a problem with the cartridges.You must first remove all the printer cartridges in order to view the right swing guide. Once these have been removed, you must check for certain parts in the printer, which mostly resemble upside-down. If you finds that the swing guide does not move all the way backwards,then the most likely problem is a missing plastic component of the swing guide. This part also resembles an upside-down T.

Error code 59 C0 due to broken back sliding lock
Another problem that may cause the error to display is when the black sliding lock is broken out of place or missing its spring. If any of these cases, you must replace the swing guide completely. You should attempt to locate the missing piece within the printer so that it does not cause further problems in it. If the swing guide does function properly, then gently close the door, paying close attention to the right side of the printer's swing arm.If the right side swing arm closes in the same manner as the left side swing arm, then your printer is functioning just fine and you may simply need to turn it off to fix the error.If the right swing arm does not close properly, then the machine should be serviced by a professional to fix the problem.

I hope this solution will helpful 4 u

Printer error 59.99


This could be the problem / answer.

0.gif Re: 3500 giving 59.99 error *SOLVED!* by alkemyst (4/10/08 8:16 AM) reply + / - I was reading about the error and another user had an issue with the swing guide plastic falling into the pickup assembly...the swing arm on this printer has in similar shape with the plastic being brittle (I had to use new larger self-tapping screws to fix it properly).

I did this this morning, it only took about 20 mins and was my first time doing this beyond the swingarm guide and removing the Image Drive assembly which gave me some practice :). It's really an easy job IMHO if you have the HP manual downloaded.

Took off the right cover, the right swing arm, left swing arm (probably not needed), the swing rod guide, the unclipped the harnesses on the pick up/feed assembly as well as unloomed the harness and the 5 screws that hold it. Then two more on the solenoid behind it and a cable or two...then that gear that was right off the solenoid had a visible offending piece of plastic, this step is page 224 in the repair manual, steps 16-19 ish, the double gear assembly that is there when you remove the pickup solenoid had the sliver of plastic from the swing arm assembly between the two gears.

Prints great again. The swing arm assembly seems to be falling apart on alot of these...may explain the large amount of 59.99 errors being reported lately.

Front sprocket


put a 2x4 or similar through the back wheel on top of swing-arm: this will lock wheel from rotating while you crack the nut. 
NEVER put the transmission in gear. 
When re-torquing the nut after refitting, put the 2 x 4 under the swing-arm instead of on top (since wheel will want to rotate opposite direction

Drive chain adjustment


To adjust the chain you need to make sure you make the adjustment with the swing arm parallel to the ground, (this is the tightest point in the arc of the swing arm moving rotation), at that point you want to be able to put two finger between the chain and the swing arm at the swing arm pivot bolt. This will insure proper adjustment every time. The best thing to do is have somebody sti on the bike off the stand to make sure the swing arm is at its MAXIMUM arc, otherwise you stand a significant chance of over tightening it and this can and WILL cause SERIOUS damage to your engine. You will rip the output shaft bearings out of the center cases.
You also want too make sure you have proper wheel alignment as well. There are marks on the rear of the swing arm for adjusting the chain, make sure you have the marks on the adjusters in the same location on BOTH sides of the swing arm.
Please let me know if you need further assistance.
Regards,
RSelvy

Dell Laser Printer model 1700


Its caused by the rubber on the feeder wheels getting worn. And the fix is easy. Just peel the flat rubber rings off the rollers, flip them inside-out, and put them back on. Now your paper will feed all the way intot he machine. ( you can order replacements the next time)

Other: Dont use alcohol on these rubber parts, it only dries them out and makes it worse, you can wash them in soapy water though.

Use higher grade heavier paper, its a bit more expesnive but wont wear out your printer with jams and dust.

Most folks (including myself) think the rollers are actuated when printing, actually the paper tray causes the rollers to pop down onto the paper stack when you close the tray all the way. you cant see it, its like trying to watch the refrigerator light go off when you close the door! :)
