Question about Dell 1710n Laser Printer

1 Answer

Paper jams Sometimes the paper jams in the rear of the printer. The only way to unjam is to open the rear door and pick at the paer with a tweezers, shredding it. This is very tedious. I see no other way to get at it. Did Dell (or Lexmark) really design a printer with no access to a jam?

Actually, no..it was an unintended feature(just kidding) I work on these all the time, and you might find that removing the bottom tray helps a bit to release the lower tension, when you open the rear door.

We have a fellowes shredder. It got full and jammed. After cleaning and emptying it will not turn on. Is there a reset button? Thanks. Betn


We've found that when the container is overfilled with shredded paper, it will begin pulling shredded paper back into the cutters and jamming the machine. Sometimes reversing the machine will spit the paper back up, but if it is thoroughly jammed, only way to unjam it is to UNPLUG it first, then manually remove the paper from the cutters. Then, be sure to dump the container BEFORE it is filled with paper.

Model j5780. How can I remove a paper jam from the bottom part?


Sometimes you have to open up the machine as much as possible, without removing hardware, to expose the inside. Shine a bright light inside to locate the jammed paper and use a suitable tool such as tweezers to pick it out piece by piece.

Won't turn off after shredding in automatic mode


This means that sensor located in the middle of feed opening has been jammed in down position. To clear this sensor arm you can try shredding strip of thick cardboard, but running it through in the very centre of the feed opening. Failing that clear the jammed paper using tweezers in addition to that you could soak the blockage between rollers with WD-40 or some lubricant. Give it a good soak, once paper softened and loosened complete clearing jam with tweezers. Your unit will operate like a dream!! Good luck

False paper jam


I had this problem with an HP Laserjet printer. An old, dry piece of paper got mangled as it fed through. I finally used a bright LED flashlight and examined the entire paper path. Found a tiny shred of paper lodged deep inside. Removing that tiny shred with tweezers solved the problem.

Paper jam in printer


Check the path path by pulling out the cartidge/ drum unit, the tray(s), and check the fuser(hot, turn off the printer and let it cool!) in the rear of the printer there is an access door(green/ blue tabs show where to open and look:).   If your still showing jams sometimes a sensor (small black arm) is dirty (blow with compressed air), out of place, snagged, or faulty. 
 Blow compressed air around the arms and look at the sensor arms. They should be able to move freely. (paper can get torn and wrapped around the sensor arm causing a fault: tweezers and patience) 
Turn on the printer and see if that works for ya.    
The only other jams come from the feed tires not being able to pick up the paper or the resist pad/roller being worn out and letting two sheets or more in at once (but this doesnt sound like your problem).     
Much luck
