Dell 1700 is printing ALL black pages...

Hey..

when I go to print something from lets say microsoft word or something my printer only prints all black paper... seems like a huge waste of ink... how can I fix this?

It's a brand new cartridge too, is it a setting that needs to be adjusted? or the drum?

Hmm..new cartridge? Check to see it's seated properly. And after replacing, go to the admin panel for the Dell printer, and check all the settings. Then, do a single test page, before doing a print run.

Printing blank pages from email and internet pages


Hey, have you tried printing from a word document?

Sometimes the format of the internet page or document will not print effectively.
Also, have you used a cartridge which is recognised by the computer? Ensure you print a test page before doing any printing if you haven't already.

If you have put black and white in and are trying to print colour, it will come out as blank if there is no colour cartridge.
Anymore information you have is welcome and I can have a further look into it.

Thanks

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.

After reinstalling windows vista home premium and microsoft works


Pushing the continue button and getting a test page just lets you know the printer is functional. This is a test without having the computer involved. If you can print a test page from the print driver, this lets you know that there is communication between the computer and the printer.

Uninstall your current drivers for the 1700, there are 2 places to look for the drivers, one would be in your all programs list, Dell Printer, uninstall, the other would be in control panel, programs and features, look for the dell printer software there. Once you have this uninstalled, go to device manager while the printer is still attached to your computer. In device manger look for the icon that represents the printer, right click it and then click uninstall. Now detach your printer, close device manager, restart your computer. Next you will boot back to the desktop, attach your printer, if windows recognizes and tries to install the printer, stop/cancel it. Install the printer drivers from the file you downloaded from the Dell support site. Now try printing from your application.


Dell's support site and download the most recent Vista drivers. Here is the link for Vista driver http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?os=WLH&osl=EN&catid=-1&impid=-1&servicetag=&SystemID=PRN_LSR_1700N&hidos=WW1&hidlang=en&TabIndex=

Dell 1700 prints a page with parameters before every print job


Probably some sort of software glitch, I'd say. First thing to try is re-installing the software with the latest version. Here's the link to download if you need it:

Dell printer began printing light


Check the default print quality. It may be set to "Draft". Also, there are numerous additional settings within the printer driver. Verify the quality settings first.
