SOURCE: 1720 Dell Laser printer Photoconductor Problem

I finally figured it out (with Dell Tech Support's help)! When you replace the drum, you MUST reset the counter as well. All you have to do is:

1) Turn off the power using the switch on the back of the printer. Open the front door of the printer.

2) Hold Continue button down, power on the printer, and continue to holding Continue down until the LEDs begin to flash. When the LEDs start to flash, release Continue button. The LEDs will continue flashing until only Error LED will be lit.

3) Close the front door. Continue, Ready/Data, Toner Low and Load Paper LEDs should be lit.

4) Wait till the printer completes the POST process. POST is complete when fan noise and rollers stops. After POST wait for 5 seconds

5) Press Cancel button 4 times slowly until the Toner Low LED is lit. This is the procedure resetting the counter.

6) Press and hold Continue until all LEDs begin to cycle in sequence, then release Continue. Now only the Toner Low LED will be lit.

7) Cycle the power of the printer (turn it off and then back on).

GOOD LUCK, EVERYONE!!!

The second link was the helpful information. Also, to cut through all of that --

If you need to reset the counter:

1. Remove drum kit with toner

2. Make sure all print jobs are flushed otherwise whatever has been sent and not printed will come spewing out.

3. Hold down CANCEL Button until all lights flash through.

4. Slide the drum kit and toner properly into the Printer.

done.

I believe this message is occur because the laser printer drum needs to be replaced, not the toner cartridge.

These are two different things. The part is a DELL 310-8710 Drum Unit. Just google DELL 1720N drum and you should be able to find one.

My dell 1720 laser printer has 3 black marks down the right side of the printer


Replace the photo conductor unit. It's the pc kit. The drum is damaged. Check to see if it has any silver aluminum showing. This is caused by excessive toner in the waste compartment of the PC Kit.

My dell 1720 printer prints streaks on the right side of every sheet. i replaced the toner. No change.


Remove the toner and the paper tray and open every door on the printer. Take a can of air and blow out every nook and cranny in the printer. Check and carefully wipe all rollers. There a fuser kit in the printer, likely in the back. If you feel comfortable with it, remove the fuser kit and use a can of air to continue cleaning. Reassemble the printer and run a few test pages, it may look like a bigger mess for the first few pages (up to 25). However, as you run the pages the print should clear up. If you still have a streaks on the pages, you will likely need to order an maintenance kit from dell. This kit should include the fuse, rollers and other replacement parts for the printer.

I hope this has helped you

Photoconductor kit? Dell 1700 printer


The photoconductor kit is another word for the drum or imaging drum. All three words refer to the same part.

Here is a link from the Dell site for this model.
http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/PopupProductDetail.aspx?c=us&l=en&cs=dhs&sku=310-5404

Once you replace the drum, the printer has to be manually reset. If this is not done, the printer will continue to give this print out. By resetting it, the counter is set back to zero. The drum is good for around 30k prints.

From the Online Manual for the 1700, to reset the counter:
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/1700n/en/index.htm#online_documentation

To reset the counter, press and hold the Cancel button until all lights flash in sequence.

NOTICE: Resetting the imaging drum's counter without replacing the imaging drum may damage your printer and void your warranty.

I change the ink cartage and get the message "the printer has stopped because the photoconductor kit has reached the end of its useful life" what does that mean


The Drum which is a separate part has reached it's end of life. WHen you pull out the toner cart, you press a little button that separates it from the drum. that drum also comes out. You can tell it's the drum becuase of the green roller. You can go to support.dell.com for info on removing the drum if you don't have the manual.

*Note* When you replace the drum, there is a procedure for resetting the drum count. The printer doesn't actually know you replaced the drum. You basically have to tell it. Now this trick will get the printer working right now with the old drum. However, you still need to get it replaced.

THis link will tell you how to replace the drum and reset the count. The directions are for the 1720, however, it will work for the 1710 as well.

Toner leaking ink on one side of paper pretty bad


There could just be a lot of toner inside the printer, but it could also be the drum unit (which also collects the waste toner) is so full that it is leaking.

This typically happens when the 'replace drum' indication is reset without actually replacing the drum.

If you have reset this without replacing the drum, and the print count is in excess of 30,000, you probably just need to replace the drm unit.
