I've got a Dell1600n multi-function Laser printer.
If I place a piece of paper on the glass of the copier & close the lid (sheet feeder) and press the 'copy' button, the printer reports 'paper jam'. If I leave the printer lid open, then the 'copy' works fine. The printer will also print from computers on my network fine.
Appears that the printer thinks that there is a paper jam in the sheet-feeder lid. I've taken a quick look but its not easy to dismantle the sheet feed.

1) Remove the label completely from the scanner module by gently pulling it. The scan
unlock switch automatically moves FORWARD to the unlock position.
2) NOTE: When you are moving the multi-function printer or do not intend to use it for a long period of time, move the switch BACKWARD to the lock position. To scan or copy a document, the switch must be unlocked.

If it is from the ADF (Automatic Document Feeder ), it probably is a speck on the scanner glass. Lift up the top scanner cover and clean the glass esp. the narrow glass on the left side. Also, lift the small ADF cover and clean the rollers with a lint free cloth dampened with a mixture of alcohol and water.

Hi, I understand your frustration. Try this solution.
* Push down the purple paper lever located on
the right side of the multi-purpose sheet feeder and pull the jammed
paper upward and out of the feeder. * Open the scanner cover by pulling the lever
located below the control panel, toward you and lifting the cover. Make
sure the cover is completely open. Check to see if any paper is left in
the paper path. *Close the scanner cover. * Remove the paper in the multi-purpose sheet
feeder. Adjust the guides in the sheet feeder to the position for the
paper size you are using. Fan the paper well, push down the paper lever.
Load the paper with the lever down. Make sure the print side is
toward the fax machine and the paper level is stacked below the paper
mark. The feeder can hold up to 200 sheets of paper (20lb paper) or up
to 10 envelopes. * Turn the power back on.
If it makes verticle lines only when using the document feeder it is most likely a dirty glass strip over the scanner light bar. If it makes verticle lines in all modes (printing, flat bed scanning/copying, receiving faxes) it could be the fuser or a dirty glass over the laser where ever the laser images to a drum roller (usually a larger green roller). It is possible that this green drum roller is inside the toner - if so - replacing the toner cartridge could fix it. Maybe you could try an old used toner to see of the problem changes - if so - it is very likely that a new toner would fix your print quality issue.
The 1600n AIO (all-in-one) is a laser printer. Laser printer use a statically charged "drum" to place toner on the paper. Your ghosting problem may be from the drum itself becoming too charged or simply dirty and not the cartridge. Servicing laser printers is tricky business because they use a lot of wattage/voltage to create the static charge and also "bake" the image onto the paper. A very quick fix would be to de-ionize the drum and clean it thoroughly.
First, make sure you have the unit completely unplugged for, at least, ten to fifteen minutes before proceeding to ensure that all static charge has had a chance to dissopate.
Second, remove the toner cartridge and place it on some newspaper or paper towels. Inspect it for any residual toner and/or damage that may be causing the ghosting (look for cracks/grooves/lines in the cartridge that shouldn't be there).
Third, take a used dryer sheet (or one that's had most of the chemical fabric softener rinsed off and then completely dried) and wipe the entire drum to completely remove any static charge. Then, using denatured alcohol and static-free, lint-free wipes clean the entire drum to remove any remaining detritus. Allow to dry thoroughly before proceeding.
Last, wipe the drum down, one final time, with a clean dryer sheet or lint-free cloth. Reassemble the unit and replace the toner cartridge.
Run a few clean sheets (blank prints or copies) to further remove any particles knocked loose and check for any more "ghosting."
Final printing will be necessary to check for inconsistencies or success.
