Question about Dell 1700n Laser Printer
Printer was working fine. Then all of a sudden all error lights started flashing simultaneously, including the Continue light. There is no jammed paper. The connection to the PC is fine. There is paper in the bin. I've opened and closed all doors, removed and reinserted the cartridge & drum, tried pressing the Continue button twice in quick succession, powered off and then on while holding the continue button. Nothing changes. If powered off then on, first the continue button flashes as though data is pending to print, then all lights start flashing. Fan is running. Motor is running although it sounds a little higher pitch than normal. I don't think this printer has an ad-on memory module -at least I can't locate one.
The flashing lights are a "Maintenance request error" or a "Fatal error". Most of the time it is a "Maintenance request error" which means the waste ink pads need to be serviced. You can reset the waste ink counter but the ink pads will need to be serviced at some point.
Use the Service option from Printer Properties to start service--maintenance----or you need to service your printer from vendor.....

Tips for a great answer:
o Under PDF Documents Owner's Manual(English) (.pdf) (1.33 MB) shows very little about the indicator lights.
o Under HTML Documents User's Guide shows more information about the indicator lights but mentions nothing about the secondary error codes.
