Question about Dell 1720dn Laser Printer

1 Answer

The printer is dispensing blank sheets amongst the printed sheets and regularly jams. It also makes a loud click, as though the mechanism is breaking, just prior to jamming. The problem happens with 80g and 90g paper. The problem only occurs when feeding from the tray, not from the front loader

You probably need to clean the paper pickup roller above the paper tray. A clean cloth dipped in diluted kitchen detergent and a couple of drops of alcohol, will clean the rubber rollers. Stroke the cleaning cloth firmly from side to side all the way around all the rollers. Also clean the paper separation shoe (rubber pad) at the front of the paper tray. The last thing is to make sure your paper is dry. Damp paper sticks together

Printer erroneously reports a paper jam


Perform a hard reset of printer and see if that clears up the situation. Also uninstall and reinstall drivers.

Some rubber lining or rollers is out of line, if you can fix that it may work properly.

The paper light is flashing


My printer is constantly getting jammed, spitting out blank sheets of paper in between every printed sheet, clicking and snapping, etc.
There are a few places to check for a jam - pull the paper drawer out and check there, take the toner cartridge out and you'll often find a sheet there that you cannot see from any other angle, open the little compartment at the back and check there and the usual paper sticking out of the output just enough to pull it out the rest of the way.
Good luck!
I'll be looking for a new printer this week though. I can't take the constant paper jams and sifting out the blank sheets when I'm printing 500+ statements a month.
Definitely NOT an office friendly machine!
