Question about Dell 1700 Laser Printer
There is something most users are unaware of. By "most users" I mean myself included.
Just today I had a similar issue. It turns out that there is a small fuse located on the side of the toner cartridge that goes into the printer. If that fuse blows, it will think that the cartridge is empty.
Check the fuse.

You can try calling Dell support at Technical Support 1-800-624-9896 to verify if the problem is electrical. We had a customer have the same problem after he replaced the imaging drum we found out that the unit still had the problem. He finally figured out that the unit has been exposed to an electrical surge and it caused a problem with the board inside the unit. I would try using a new imaging drum but if the unit is still covered by Dell I would have them replace it.
