Question about Dell 1700n Laser Printer
We have been on vacation for a week. The printer was in the off position and so was the power strip it was plugged in to. When we turned the printer on, all the lights came on and began to blink (Ready, toner low, replace drum, load/remove paper, paper jam, error, and continue); also the printer warmed up like normal. I checked for a paper jam, nothing. I held the continue button down, nothing. The toner was running low before we left so I tried a new cartridge, nothing. I can't find anyting about this type of problem in the troubleshooting guide. I have tried resetting the printer three times by turning it off and then back on. This is a wireless printer, the wireless adapter connected to the printer seems to be acting normal with all lights on steady. What do I need to do?
Unfortunately I have this problem as well. Apparently this happens often, it is a system board failure. As person above mentioned - flash the eeprom on the printer's control panel, but I don't know how to do that and he didn't give instructions! Apparently a firmware can fix the problem, but you can not apply a firmware if all lights are blinking... Oh Dell, I hate you!

Reflash the eeprom located on the control panel!

Thanks for the help on this. I ended up calling Dell...a few times. I got lucky and spoke with a person who could speak english very well. she logged on to my computer and tried to download a firmware fix. When she realized that the printer had to have a constant green light to upload the firmware she decided the only fix was to send me a new printer. The 'new' printer is a refurbished printer but it works!

I have seen the problem before and it is fixed by replacing the main board.
