Question about Dell 1710n Laser Printer
My Dell 1710 stopped working and all of the lights were solid. I tried the reset methods suggested here for several days and then ordered a new laser printer. On the sixth day, before the new laser arrived, I flipped the Dell 1710 on and the patient came out of its' coma and started working again. It has been fine for the past several weeks, outside of a periodic handshake (that has been there since new) problem. So don't throw your old printer out it might just need a short rest. I'd suggest someone yell at Dell and find out the real problem and a better solution. If these printers do have a 20% failure rate Dell really ought to provide a more reasonable swap out rate than the $120 it costs for a new system board!

It is a bad system board. replace the board, and your printer will work. I've had this same issue on about 75 of 400 1710's we have.
