Question about Dell 1700 Laser Printer
Unless your 'new' cartridge has a used chip, it's likely that the pagecount for the Photoconductor/Drum Unit is at the replace stage.
The Drum unit has a small waste toner collection container, is this becomes over-full, waste toner 'spews' into the printer with dire effects. This is ONE of the reasons that drum units have a rated pagecount.
You can reset the drum counter without actually replacing the drum, but this should be used as a short term measure ONLY, AND AT YOUR OWN RISK.
The Photconductor reset procedure is as follows.
RESETTING DRUM PAGE COUNTER
1) Leave the power on, insert toner cartridge, and leave door open
2) Press the cancel button and hold till the leds flash
3) Release cancel button and close toner cartridge door

Try removing the toner cartridge and putting it back in place.
Try also unplugging power cord for ten minutes, and check if this clears error message.
Inspect the printer for foreign objects, or paper stuck inside.
If this does not work, it is a faulty drum.

Either the "toner cartridge sensor" N4445 isn't reading the chip in the toner,
or an MCU board P5281 or EEPROM is defective

If your cartridge has a lever on the left side near the rear, it needs to be reset, and there's a lever inside on the left that can stick and cause that error. You need to wiggle and pull that lever until it moves freely again.
