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.

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.
