Re: Dell 1700 Transfer Roller

These series printers have a typical problem of the paper pickup rollers wearing out resulting in jams, crooked feeds and partial feeds. a quick fix:

take the paper tray out, turn the printer on edge and locate those two rubber roller bands on the pickup arm. Peel them off, flip them inside-out and return them to the rollers. This restores thier sticky rubber side so the papper feeds properly.

Now if you are a heavy printer, you can order some of these from dell for the next time. Washing these in handsaop and water works sometimes too. never use alcohol.

Replace Transfer Roller

If the printer still says to replace transfer roller even after it's replaced, then remove transfer roller and manually turn the gears on the transfer roller a few times. It must get stuck or something. Then replace the transfer roller and it should work.

Our Dell 5110cn stopped working and the 'diagnostic' said to replace the transfer roller. I had purchased a Dell Imaging Drum and replaced that. I believe it has a transfer roller as part of the Imaging...

Dell sells the drum & transfer roller a kit, but there are 2 different parts to it, the drum & the transfer roller & they do not look the same. Replacing the drum does NOT replace the transfer roller. We've had a 5110cn for 4 years, I've replace both of these parts & the fuser unit several times.

My Dell 1700n Drum and Toner Cartridge were both replaced when the drum replace light blinked and the print was getting lighter. Despite resetting the Drum counter the printer still only prints faintly...

Have you checked the fuser?

A laser printer fuser assembly is the heating roller unit that melts and fuses the toner onto the paper. The fuser assembly is made up of a heating roller and a pressure roller.

The heating roller applies the heat to the toner on the printed page and the pressure roller presses and fuses the toner into the printed page. If it's bad and not heating properly, the print will be faint, which is what you describe. You may be able to remove and clean the fuser, but if the printer gets lots of use, it may just be worn out.

See this link for an idea of what it looks like and a price.

I do not work or represent this company, so shop around.

I replaced the transfer belt and the printer prints now. However, the unit that heats has a black ring on it which transfers to the paper that prints. What part needs to be replaced now?

Replace transfer roller means you need to order a transfer roller for your
dell printer. your best bet is to go to and order the trasnfer roller for your printer.

Is transfer roller available separately. dell only sells it with imaging drum

it does work we have both models and the transfer rollers are interchangeable between the 5100 and 5110.

Does not pick up paper from the tray

How much paper gone throught the printer since it is new?
usually the pickup roller is good for 10,000-15,000 sheets.(20x500 sheet pack). if the printer went throught that much paper, then the pick up roller need to be replaced.
if not, make sure there nothing stucked on the pickup roller, and the roller is not shining (it need to be soft and rough).
