Who can fix my printer from paper jamming? It is a Dell Laser Printer 1700 and keeps jamin the paper. Who do I call? Have tried almost everything.We live in a remote Mountain area Colorado.


If you mean that the print cycle starts, but the "Paper Jam" lights up at the point where the paper starts to enter the drum, here's what I found worked.

The rollers that feed the paper come down onto the clean sheets on a plastic, spring-loaded arm Those rollers sometimes get too slick after a lot of use and they won't push the paper up and into the drum -- they slip like worn tires.

Solution: slip the rubber "tires"off the plastic roller "wheels" and reverse them, inside-out. Put them back on the wheels and the new rubber surface will probably push the paper just fine.

To do this you have to turn the machine upside down and remove the paper tray. I would unplug the unit and remove the drum as well before trying this.

Good luck.

Problem with printing an envelope


Not an ideal solution, but, Dell printers were not desined with envelopes in mind. (I used to work there)

My solution, if you value your time at all, pick up an HP personal laser printer. Costs a little more, but the time saved will much outweigh the inital cost.

You CAN get the dell printer to work a few times maybe but consistently is not a possility....

I have a dell 1700 laser load paper lite and ont print from tray


sure..it's in the printer control panel, under paper source. Open that up, and you'l lmost likely find that it's on a default. Also, do a print test page under admin, prior to doing any print jobs.

pickup rollers bad, you can try to clean them with rubber cleaner but it's best to have the rollers replaced.

Dell 1700 often jams in one spot


Just in case you don't know where the rollers are in the paper cassette...remove the paper cassette drawer and he rollers are at the top of the entrance to the drawer. There are two rollers, grasp one between your fingers and gentle pull the roller down to see the mechanism better. Rotate both rollers and you may find a build up of dirt/grime on either or both. Simple clean them with an appropriate wet cleaner & lint free cloth.
