Question about Dell 1710n Laser Printer
I ran out of paper, refilled the paper tray, made sure there wasn't too much in there--I thought. But when it resumed printing the article I'd sent, it curled one side of the new paper then jammed. Now, I can see the piece that's in there when I lower the door at the back for the barely 45 degrees the darned thing will drop down (I'm afraid I'm going to snap it off!), but I cannot get the paper to feed through NOR can I get enough hold on the paper to pull it the rest of the way through. I haven't printed 100 pages with this thing!
I have taken the toner and the drum out to find a paper jam and could not find anything. I even turned the printer "off" and "on" and the "paper jam" light stays on. What can we do?

Another place where the paper can get jammed:
take the paper tray out completely
there is a blue curved plastic that is used to feed the paper back to the printer (when printing duplex)
there is a small handle on the left side you can pull down and take the paper out.
i couldnt print any duplex, the paper always get jammed there, maybe the paper used is too thin..?

Take the paper tray out of the printer....on the bottom of the printer is a little arm that has 2 wheels with "rubber bands" on them. It sounds like you need to replace them. You can try turning them inside out and that might temp. fix your problem. All the 1700 series printers where I work curl paper all the time and it is because those rubber bands have worn out.

here's one for you. if it is jamming with one sheet almost out (the trailing edges is just out of the fuser. it will also jam the same way everytime. you might try a different brand toner cartridge. I have beening fixing several with this.
