SOURCE: 1720 Dell Laser printer Photoconductor Problem

I finally figured it out (with Dell Tech Support's help)! When you replace the drum, you MUST reset the counter as well. All you have to do is:

1) Turn off the power using the switch on the back of the printer. Open the front door of the printer.

2) Hold Continue button down, power on the printer, and continue to holding Continue down until the LEDs begin to flash. When the LEDs start to flash, release Continue button. The LEDs will continue flashing until only Error LED will be lit.

3) Close the front door. Continue, Ready/Data, Toner Low and Load Paper LEDs should be lit.

4) Wait till the printer completes the POST process. POST is complete when fan noise and rollers stops. After POST wait for 5 seconds

5) Press Cancel button 4 times slowly until the Toner Low LED is lit. This is the procedure resetting the counter.

6) Press and hold Continue until all LEDs begin to cycle in sequence, then release Continue. Now only the Toner Low LED will be lit.

7) Cycle the power of the printer (turn it off and then back on).

GOOD LUCK, EVERYONE!!!

SOURCE: toner mess on one side of paper dell 1720 printer

The transfer roller may have toner on it that is making that mess. Remove the toner and drum, look inside the printer, there is a grey roller towards the back of the printer. Is there toner on the right hand side that corresponds to the print out? If there is, cleaning it may only make it worse. Replacing it would be the best solution. You would want to make sure that the drum is clean after replacing the roller, if it is not ,then it will transfer to this roller once again.

I have a HP Photosmart D7160 and it won't print 4 X 6. It has black marks on the wrong side when it comes out, but not picture


Try flipping the paper. Probably you need to resize the image for this size, sounds like it is compressed and squnched together into those black marks. See if you can use a preview function.

Artia 6100 machine showing err out of paper.


hi,
ur machines paper sensing sensor have some problem. did u used the paper with black mark on the side.
remove the paper cover . u can see a black square sensor near the side of thermal printer. clean the sensor with an ear bud. do not use any solutions. then check again.
remember use good quality paper. if the black mark on the side of the paper is not perfect this problem can occur (black mark on the paper is for page count and paper sensing)
ok

Schiller AT-2 Plus, placed new paper in machine and machine keeps stating "out of paper" and will not print unless I hold down the manual print.


Your machine has the wrong paper in it or the paper sensor is not working properly.  There should be a black mark on the top left hand corner of each page.  The correct ekg paper and ekg repair is available from Medical Device Depot.

Black marks


Replace the toner cartridge; this happens periodically, especially with refurbished cartridges. Parts of the cartridge can go bad even though the cartridge itself still has ink in it.

Printer is destroying my papers


The problem sounds like it is the FUSER. It is notorious for wrinkling paper and causing black marks. Try replacing that, and you should be fine. It's NOT your paper... just try replacing the Fuser.

Drum kits marking up and streaking the paper


You can check with Dell to see if there is a maintenance kit for this printer. I know that there is one for the HP counterpart. You will probably need to replace the fuser, and maybe the pickups and rollers, but as I said I am not sure if Dell has a maintenance kit for these machines.

Black roller marks on right side of paper


Sounds like you have a bad fuser assembly if the drum unit didn't solve the probelm.
