There is a sensor that is under the toner cartridge. make sure that it's sticking up. The fuser in the back of the printer has one sensor flag that is supposed to stick up all the time except when paper goes through it. What I see alot of times is that the sensor flags get stuck halfway down and all they usually need is a little help back up. Sometimes when removing a paper jam from the back of the printer the flag can be broken off, if that happens then your most likely looking at replacing the fuser. If you feel up to it you can take off the two side covers (the left one has a screw half way down in the front that you have to take out first) and then there are four screw on the back that take off the back cover so you can get a look at the fuser better. Remember to look for a screw that attaches the back cover directly to the fuser when you pull take it apart. Make sure there isn't any dust blocking the sensorts. Hope that helps.

SOURCE: dell 1700 laser printer wont load from tray only manual

If the rollers don't turn (or turn and slip) and maybe you hear a clicking noise from the left side of the printer, there is a spring clutch inside the gear at the end of the shaft going to the swing arm. I found that sometimes grease gets inside and causes the spring to slip instead of grip like it should. If you're very careful, you can take off the left side cover and lay the printer on its right side (left side facing up). Then remove 3 or 4 screws around the gear assembly and lift the assembly straight off the printer. To get to the spring clutch, you'll have to move a couple gears out of the way (remember how they go back or you're screwed - and watch the toner arm spring as well). Remove the plastic c-clip on the end of the pickup shaft and lift off the clutch gear. Pull the gear apart and wipe off any grease from the inner surfaces where the clutch spring sits. Reverse your steps to put it back together.

there is a flag in the output bin that lets the printer know when there is too much paper on top of the printer and it stops so that the papers do not continue to feed out and overflow.

Either the flag is stuck in the up position, in which case you can just gently move it so it is hanging straight down, or the flag has been broken off and no longer functional ( in which case the flag and/or sensor would need to be replaced).

I've experienced this in the past and found a paper jam in the back feed roller and had to take the unit apart to retreave document. Try doing this (only if no longer under warranty) there are a few screws in the front and it should be able to come off easily.

All flashing lights for the Dell 1700 series (1700, 1710, 1720 including those that have n or dn as part of the model) printers is a service related error. When double pressing the continue button twice quickly, the printer will give a secondary error code, narrowing down the printer part being effected. It is possible to even narrow the error code down even futher by double pressing the continue button and taking note of which combination of lights come on, wether they are steady or blinking. Most generally when this series of printers, when you get all flashing lights, something major is going on with the printer. It could be pointing to the fuser, or main board, etc. You can call dell warranty support and they will help narrow down which part is being effected. Most generally, what is being effected is not cost effective to get fixed if you are no longer under warranty.

Dell 1700 1710 series printer. Paper not picking up trick....


Here's a quick tip. If your Dell 17XX series (not confirmed for newer than 1710dn printers) is no longer picking up paper from the tray, it MAY be from worn out rollers. Try this tip to get it going while you wait for a replacement roller to get to you:
1 - remove the paper tray
2 - remove toner
3 - flip printer upside down (exposing the rollers)
4 - remove the rubber on the roller
5 - invert it. (turn it inside out)
6 - replace rubber back onto roller (still inverted)
7 - test print.

If this doesn't work then the problem is likely a paper setting (set to legal or something) Good luck.

Who can fix my printer from paper jamming? It is a Dell Laser Printer 1700 and keeps jamin the paper. Who do I call? Have tried almost everything.We live in a remote Mountain area Colorado.


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.

Dell 1700 will not feed paper


If your Dell 1700 laser printer is not pulling paper all the way, try cleaning the pick up rollers.

To access the pick up rollers. Turn off the printer. Unplug everything from the back of the printer. Take out the toner/drum and set this aside out of the light (the drum is effected by light). Remove the paper tray. Set the printer on its backside. The rollers are located on the underside of the printer where you just removed the paper tray. You may have to move a blue flap to get at the rollers. Take a damp paper towel and clean these off. Another possible solution is to take the grey rollers off and turn them inside out and then place them back on the printer.

The pick up rollers should not be shiney, or cracked and dryed out. If they are, they will not pick up the paper to feed it into the printer. The tires should have "traction" to them so that they can grip the paper and feed it into the printer.

Once you have the tires cleaned off or turned inside out and placed back on reassemble the printer and try printing.

Dell photo 924 all in one printer paper promblem


Unplug the power adapter from the printer and then remove the papers from the printer , open the printer cover and look for any obstructions , lift the printer and shake it firmly, turn the printer upside down and gently tab on it , roll the paper tray rollers manually , put back the power adapter and then try printing a document with only one paper in the paper tray if it still gives the same error then its an issue with the printer and if the printer is under warranty then get the printer replaced .. or purchase a new printer instead of getting it repaired .. dell is offering a new printer 926 for $49 with 1 year warranty.

Do lemme know if that helps.
Bye.
