I had similar problem on Dell 1700n. What worked for me was changing some settings in the diagnostic menu. You can preform this by
1. switching off the printer on its back 2. open its front cover 3. push ad hold the CANCEL button 4. in the meantime switch the printer back on, but hold the cancel button still. 5. Release when the error led is lit only. 6. close the front cover.
Now you should see at least two or three leds lit. It means that you're in diagnostic mode now.
By pressing and holding the continue button now until the leds start flashing rapidly, you can print a manual of this mode.
In this menu you should manage to change the: something like "configuration" value (it has two options), and let the printer reboot itself.
Try if it works now, if you experience some problems with these settings, just change the value back, and test your printer again.
Good Luck;)

ON MY DELL 1700 PRINTER THERE ARE BLACK SMUDGES ON THE RIGHT HAND SIDE ONLY ON THE COPY PAPER WHEN IT PRINTS BOUT 3 INCHES APART?


Normally this is caused by the drum cartridge that fits under the toner. Replacing this drum cartridge will clear up the black marks on your print. Use this Dell Part# : A0373010 to order. After replacing the drum cartridge counter will have to be reset, Use the following steps.
1. Open the front door.
2. Press and hold the cancel button (x button) until all the lights flash in order.
3. Then close the front cover.
This will reset the drum counter.

There is nothing on the photoconductor unit to 'tell' the printer that it is new, you have to do this yourself, by following the photocinductor reset procedure (it's in the manual, or

The printer has no way of knnowing that you have changed the Photoconductor Unit, unless you tell it (as there is not chip on the Photoconductor).

Toner is printing on right hand side of each page printed


Most likely it is the drum cartridge. The other causes such as toner on the laser optics would not produce an on again off again print area. It would be blank the entire way down the page. Since the toner prints in patches down the right side it means it is coming from something that is "rotating" and that narrows it down to the drum.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

2 Dell 1700 printers both have started jamming pages


Easy fix. Replace the pick up rollers. There cheap and easy to replace. It make perfect sense, bought at the same time and use the same amount then the pick up rollers are going to wear out causing paperjams at the same time.

Dell 1700 prints a page with parameters before every print job


Probably some sort of software glitch, I'd say. First thing to try is re-installing the software with the latest version. Here's the link to download if you need it:

Dark background on Dell 1700 printing


Faulty (or wrongly) remanufactured cartridges can produce a 'background' to a print, which can be even across the page or have a mottled effect.

Do a printer self test page (press the arrow button).

put the old toner cartridge back in and do the same.

Does the background show with the old cartridge ?

If it does, its a drum unit problem, if not its a toner cartridge problem, and that should be under warranty if you've just replaced it.

Prints on only 1/2 of sheet of paper


Let's verify the main source of the problem:
Are you possibly printing web pages? Some are not very printer friendly, and could fit the description you give.
If you can print successfully from another application (notepad, MS Word, etc.), your printer is working and the issue is software related (setup, etc.), and not the device. Check your page setup to see if you have the correct page size, orientation and offsets set correctly.

If all apps fail, check your printer's User Guide for more information.

Dell 1700 is printing ALL black pages...


hmm..new cartridge? Check to see it's seated properly. And after replacing, go to the admin panel for the Dell printer, and check all the settings. Then, do a single test page, before doing a print run.
