Paper jam dell 1720dn printer

I ran out of paper, refilled the paper tray, made sure there wasn't too much in there--I thought. But when it resumed printing the article I'd sent, it curled one side of the new paper then jammed. Now, I can see the piece that's in there when I lower the door at the back for the barely 45 degrees the darned thing will drop down (I'm afraid I'm going to snap it off!), but I cannot get the paper to feed through NOR can I get enough hold on the paper to pull it the rest of the way through. I haven't printed 100 pages with this thing!

I have taken the toner and the drum out to find a paper jam and could not find anything. I even turned the printer "off" and "on" and the "paper jam" light stays on. What can we do?

    Take the toner cartridge and the drum out. Look at the bottom of the inside of the printer, about half way up, and you will see a little piece of plastic that sticks up. This must move freely. The one in my printer was knocked to one side. Luckily it snapped back into place. If this little plastic piece is messed up it will cause the printer to show a paper jam when there is no paper jam. This information came from Dell Tech Support. Once the little plastic piece was back in place the printer no longer indicated a paper jam when there was none. Be careful, the piece appears flimsy.

    Now if I could just stop the real paper jams.

Another place where the paper can get jammed: take the paper tray out completely there is a blue curved plastic that is used to feed the paper back to the printer (when printing duplex) there is a small handle on the left side you can pull down and take the paper out.
i couldnt print any duplex, the paper always get jammed there, maybe the paper used is too thin..?

Take the paper tray out of the printer....on the bottom of the printer is a little arm that has 2 wheels with "rubber bands" on them. It sounds like you need to replace them. You can try turning them inside out and that might temp. fix your problem. All the 1700 series printers where I work curl paper all the time and it is because those rubber bands have worn out.

Try replacing all paper. Sometimes paper that is overly humid or has gotten wet will curl. Replace with new paper and report results.

My Dell MFP 1815dn has a paper Jam 2. I removed the toner cartridge and pulled the paper out, before I realized that I needed to open the back. I believe I thought I got the paper out, but the printer is...


After a paper jam occurs in the rear cover of a Dell Laser Multi-Function Printer 1815N, the printer will not resume when the jammed paper is removed. This is the normal behavior of the printer as there is no sensor on the rear cover of this printer.

To open the back cover and remove any stuck paper, perform the following steps:
  1. Open and close the front cover.
    The jammed paper may automatically exit the printer. If the paper does not exit, go to the next step.
  2. Gently pull the paper out of the output tray.
  3. If you cannot see the paper in the output tray or the paper does not move when pulled, open the rear cover.
  4. Skip to step 9. If you do not see the paper, go to the next step.If you see the jammed paper, push the two blue pressure levers up and remove the paper.
  5. Release the blue strap, the rear cover stopper, and fully open the rear cover.
  6. Unfold the duplex guide fully.
  7. While pushing the fuser lever to the right, open the fuser door. NOTICE: Make sure to unfold the duplex guide before opening the fuser door, or the fuser door may be damaged.
  8. Pull the jammed paper out.
  9. Return the levers, fuser door, rear cover stopper, and duplex guide to their original position.
  10. Close the rear cover.
  11. Open and close the front cover.
    Printing automatically resumes.

Paper Jam light is on and there's no jam anywhere. What do you do?


A paper jam notification can be caused by two things. One a hard jam, paper stuck.

Two, If the paper does not reach a flag or sensor on time, the printer knows that a jam has occurred.

Most likely, you had a paper pick problem caused by dirty rollers or maybe the paper is held to tightly by the paper tray. Also a static charge on the paper can sometimes cause sheets of paper to stick together.

Paper jammed (Dell lase Printer 1720dn


Open the back cover and look for paper wrapped around a roller back there. That is the most common cause of the issues with this machine. The other thing you can try is to push down on the little flaps where the paper comes out of the printer. These get stuck and need cleaning/replacement all the time in the later life of these models (1720's).

Paper Jam error


Try feeding paper from the front, if it works, your paper pickup rollers maybe having problems (dusty/worn-out).
