Dell printer began printing light

We have 3 dell 1700 printers that all started printing very light at the same time. These printers are connected to individual machines. This appeared to happened when the University pushed out a Microsoft patch or something.

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.

Cartidge dell not working on dell 1700 laser printer


When the print cartridge contacts are dirty and the printer cannot detect/communicate with print cartridge.

Clean the contact points on the cartridges with a dry, lint-free cloth.

1. Open the top cover of the printer.

2. Remove the print cartridges.

3. Clean the copper-colored contact points on the cartridges with a damp, lint-free cloth.
Use a dry, lint-free cloth to remove moisture from the contacts.

5. Insert the cartridges back into the printer.

6. Close the top cover.

7. Try printing again.

If you still cant communicate try with new cartridge .
