Question about Dell 1600n All-In-One Laser Printer

1 Answer

Rear NIC Light blinking

Hi, I've been using Dell 1600n all-in-one laser printer for almost an year now. I have it connected to a network cable, and using it as a network printer. Today the printer stopped responding to my print command. After trying to ping the server from command prompt, it did not respond either. I checked the connection on the back of the printer and found that the NIC light was blinking continuously. I pulled the jack out and still the light kept blinking. I've tried turning the printer off and back on, but still no luck. I did a reset of network configuration of the printer, but no luck. I didnt find anything the user manual or owners guide. Can anyone please help me diagnosing the problem and finding a solution for it. Any help will be much appreciated.

    Please let me know if you got this solved, I have exactly the same problem, sometimes the upper NIC light will come on but I still cant ping the printer, does not matter what ip address I use. Also if I use a crossover cable it wont work.

I found one of these printers in a parts bin and it looked like it was in great condition so I said what the heck, I'll try it out. Had the blinking light problem and figured it was a nic card because all functions via USB worked fine. If I plugged in a network cable, it froze up all functions except the LCD menu.

Took off the side panel and low and behold, it had taken a bad fall and the NIC card's connector to the main borad was busted. The main borad was fine though so it does everything fine via USB. Its a modulear NIC card so replacing it would probably work, but the chance of finding a replacement NIC card for the printer? Slim to none, it doesnt even have a model number. Only if I come across another one of these printers. Oh well, sweet printer for free, even if it only works via USB.

Hi gurjit: try this..

Reconnect the LAN cable to the hub to verify
that the cable and network connections are good. If possible, try connecting the
machine to a different port on your hub using a different cable. If the connections
are good, the lower LED of the back panel of the machine will be green.
sends me the result.

I have a dell 1600n printer. Though it prints but the copier is not functioning. The copier light does not come up. It brings a command, "Unlock scanner, then press cancel"



1) Remove the label completely from the scanner module by gently pulling it. The scan unlock switch automatically moves FORWARD to the unlock position.
2) NOTE: When you are moving the multi-function printer or do not intend to use it for a long period of time, move the switch BACKWARD to the lock position. To scan or copy a document, the switch must be unlocked.
Please see page 4 of the owners manual for more details. Here's a link in case you've lost yours:

I hope this response helps you out.
I wish you the very best of luck!

That's because you can't scan over wireless. In order to scan, you need to be connected via USB, so I hope you've got a MacBook...

If it makes verticle lines only when using the document feeder it is most likely a dirty glass strip over the scanner light bar. If it makes verticle lines in all modes (printing, flat bed scanning/copying, receiving faxes) it could be the fuser or a dirty glass over the laser where ever the laser images to a drum roller (usually a larger green roller). It is possible that this green drum roller is inside the toner - if so - replacing the toner cartridge could fix it. Maybe you could try an old used toner to see of the problem changes - if so - it is very likely that a new toner would fix your print quality issue.

Windows Vista can't find networkd Dell 1600n


Make sure you're using the drivers for Vista, which can be found on support.dell.com. You'll want to use the choice for Vista 32-bit.

Also, try turning off your firewall, as it may be blocking the network data.

Dell 1600N Multifunction printer problem.


Fuser issues - if problem is reoccuring then you are looking at more expense, are all vents free of obstructions (folders leaning on machine sides/rear) is machine being flogged, is power supply consistent, maybe even fuser bought was faulty, many options, try doing a warranty claim on fuser or replace again, even better get another printer, welcome to our throw away world!
