I had this same problem and I worked with the printer forever and tried everything. Finally, I put the old cartridge back in and it fixed the problem - I would make sure to use a Dell cartridge in the printer and not an off brand or refurbished.

Here is a link to your printers manual. It has troubleshooting in it and explains what the error means when you see the picture of the sun with the ink drop & exclamation point blinking. It also has instructions on how to fix the error and stop the blinking.
Check your print settings by properties. The setting might me on toner save mode so it will print 50% liter or which ever one someone press. It could of been my mistake but it must be toner save mode is on.
Please rate me good
There is no setting on the 1710 printer to clear the error of a non Dell branded toner being inserted. Some higher end Dell printers do have a setting for Non-Dell branded toner. Not all Dell printers have this setting. Resetting the drum count will have no effect on a non dell branded toner error.
After replacing the drum unit you have to tell the printer that you've done it(it's not smart enough to figure it out itself). Have the front door open and press and hold the Cancel button on the printer until all lights flash in sequence then let go. Then close door and try.
The solution I used and the one I suggest is to switch to another brand and NEVER buy another Dell product. Until recently, everything in my office was Dell. Eventually everything will be other than Dell. Their support is terrible and I think the quality of their products has deteriorated over the years.
