Depending on the age, there was a safety recall on this printer a couple of years ago for an overheating and possibility of fire. If I remember correctly, it was printers made in 2004 or 2005. Should be something on the web (consumer product safety).

New Dell 1710 laser printer is generating faded characters


This usually happens when the toner is running low.
Try removing the toner cartridge and shake it in a horizontal position and insert it back in the printer. This may give you a few more printed pages before you have to get a new toner cartridge.

I changed the toner drum in my Dell lasaer printer and now all I get is an error message with a flashing toner. How can I get the printer to print? Thanks,


Did you use a factory new toner cartridge or a refilled/third party cartridge.

If it is a factory new cartridge, contact Dell and let them know you were issued a defective cartridge.

If it is refilled or third party, try to get your money back and hope that you have not damaged your printer.

Then go get a factory new cartridge.

Dell 1700 is giving me an error about the Toner. It also prints out a page telling me to replace the photoconductor kit. I have replaced the photoconductor and the toner but it still has the same error and...


The printer has no way of knnowing that you have changed the Photoconductor Unit, unless you tell it (as there is not chip on the Photoconductor).

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

Dark background on Dell 1700 printing


Faulty (or wrongly) remanufactured cartridges can produce a 'background' to a print, which can be even across the page or have a mottled effect.

Do a printer self test page (press the arrow button).

put the old toner cartridge back in and do the same.

Does the background show with the old cartridge ?

If it does, its a drum unit problem, if not its a toner cartridge problem, and that should be under warranty if you've just replaced it.

If that is the only light:
Remove the toner cartridge and firmly shake it from side-to-side and front-to-back several to use the
remaining toner, and then reinsert it and continue printing. Repeat this procedure multiple times until
the print remains faded. When the print remains faded, replace the toner cartridge

If not let me know.
