Question about Samsung ML 1710 Laser Printer
My 1710 goes through the customary warm up before printing, sounds as if it is going to print, then stops and the red light goes on. I open and close the paper drawer and it goes through motions again and stops. After several such attempts opening and closing the paper drawer it will finally print, sometimes one page, sometimes all.
Sounds like the printer is having trouble feeding the paper , it tries then fails to feed paper and goes into jam.
Locate rubber feed roller (usally grey or black about a inch wide should be , lower front above paper tray, whipe this rubber roller with a slightly damp cloth and try again
You could also verify if this is the problem by feeding paper via bypass instead of paper tray
Check to make sure error light is not indicating no toner and that is what is stopping printing

To fix the problem you have to press the plate that the paper sits on down until it clicks into place once you do that it should work fine.

Chances are, you're getting paper jams. Try cleaning the rollers (as indicated below.) If that seems to help the situation, then you'll need to get new feed rollers.
Look where you put the paper in. See if you can see inside there and see the roller that turns and picks up the paper. If you can, make a mixture of alcohol and a little dish soap. Damp a rag with it, and reach in there to clean the rollers. See if the rollers will turn manually, but be careful not to force anything. Another way to get to the whole roller, would be to start making a print, while watching the rollers. As soon as the rollers have turned half way, unplug the printer. Now you can reach the other side and clean that.
There is another way to clean the rollers. Using the alcohol mix, take a single sheet of paper, and damp one half of it with the solution. Stick the single sheet in the paper tray, and make a print, but hold on to the paper so that it doesn't feed through the machine. Do this several times, and the rollers turning against the wet paper should clean them.
Try to print again. It might take a few tries. The rollers have to turn against the paper and dry themselves off again.
If this works, then you need new rollers (cleaning them will only make them work temporarily and the problem will come more frequently until you change them).
