Open the back cover and look for paper wrapped around a roller back there. That is the most common cause of the issues with this machine. The other thing you can try is to push down on the little flaps where the paper comes out of the printer. These get stuck and need cleaning/replacement all the time in the later life of these models (1720's).

Paper Jam light is on and there's no jam anywhere. What do you do?


A paper jam notification can be caused by two things. One a hard jam, paper stuck.

Two, If the paper does not reach a flag or sensor on time, the printer knows that a jam has occurred.

Most likely, you had a paper pick problem caused by dirty rollers or maybe the paper is held to tightly by the paper tray. Also a static charge on the paper can sometimes cause sheets of paper to stick together.

Dell 1720 laser printer shows paper jam after clearing jam and turning off and back on.


Hi,
some paper piece may be left in the printer.
Please check where was the leading edge of the paper when it was jammed. some sensors may have got stuck while removing paper. open the toner door remove the toner cartridge, just see all the sensor flags with fingers, refix toner and power on and try printing

Paper Jammed totally removed but indicator still records paper jammed


Here is a very key fix to the problem described:
The 2 rollers which help feed paper get slippery and don't work well after a while. These rollers are found by flipping the unit over (after removal of the toner/drum/paper drawers) and exposing them (they are towards the front of the unit). The two rollers have one rubber band each which provide friction. Just remover the rubber bands (black), flip them "inside out" and replace on the unit. This will expose a new surface, an viola!... virtually double the life of the roller... The other option is to obtain a roller replacement unit from DELL/LEXMARK. They are aware of the problem and have a "kit" to service the unit. Good Luck!....

Paper Jam error


Try feeding paper from the front, if it works, your paper pickup rollers maybe having problems (dusty/worn-out).
