My Dell 1720dn mono laser printer has not printed properly for some time - in fact it's dreadful! The letters and dark images have white vertical lines going through them, and some of the printing do

Change your toner cartridge. A properly working toner cartridge will never leave that much toner lying around. The white lines are an indication that either the toner is low, or the mag roller is defective.

We have a CLP-300 Series A laser printer which we really like. The problem we are having has recently surfaced after we changed the BLACK toner cartridge. There are skips and light area in the printing...

I think you should contact the manufacturer or vendor who sold you the cartridge. The standard warranty is 90 days. I believe that it will prove to be a bad toner/ drum (which are the same thing for this printer.)
Besides that you can do a "half-test". Stop the print job half way by opening a cover during the print process, before it is transfer to the paper and fused. Look at the drum or transfer belt and see whether the defect exists early in the print process.
There may also be a contact problem with the black toner. Check for bent metal on the toner, or chassis that should mate and conduct charge to the toner.

b. Press the up or down arrow key to select OFF and then press OK.
c. Press Stop/Exit.
2. Print a document from your computer or print a demo page by pressingthe FAX and COPY keys at the same time.

Just change new toner but light printing problem

I hate to say this, but there's nothing you can do, these printers are notorious for printing blacks as grays. On the bright sde your toner will last forever.

New toner prints very light. No setting changes on printer.

I had a similar problem, it turned out to be a cheap toner cartridge. Replaced it with an HP cartridge and have had any problem since.

I have changed the toner in my printer and the toner light continues to stay on/won't print. I tried changing the drum and still the toner light stays on/won't print. I tried opening the toner door and...

No guarantee this will work but I refilled toner on my Brother 5170 and it only worked after making sure the old stuff was completely out. After removing the little plastic plug, I tapped out the toner repeatedly on the side of a trash can (like 50 times) then took a shop vac and let that **** out whatever toner was left. It really seems to be important for some reason to rid the cartridge of ALL old toner before adding the new stuff. Hope this helps!

Drum light on Ready light on Alarm light on Data light on

Alarm and Data lights on together is from low toner. If shaking of the toner cartridge is not helping, change the toner.
Drum light is usually on because of the print counter. If the print quality goes really bad, change the drum and reset the counter by holding the front button wile the front cover is open till all lights come on. Release the button and close the cover.
If just Data light is on, check the print ques, some jobs might got stuck there.
