SOURCE: Printer prints first page with strange nonsensical characters

I would move the printer to another computer. See if the problem follows. I have seen the issue a few times with issues in normal.dot but also in other office applications.

Problem I'm fighting with on my 1720 is its printing extra pages between pages. basically print a 5 page document and get an 8/9 page final with the extra blank pages. Think its a user error but could be machine related. going to try it on another PC and see what happens.

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: DELL 1720 PRINTER PRINTS VERY SLOWLY.

Whenever I have a customer tell me their printer seems to be running slower, 9 times out of 10 its what they're trying to print...not the printer. Heres a couple of things to do and ask yourself. First I'd do a test print from the printer itself. Does it kick it right out? Then go to the printer folder on the computer, right click on the printer, go to properties..click print test page. Does that come out pretty quick? Okay if they seem relatively fast then its beginning to look like something other than the printer. Try printing the job that seems to run slow. Then try printing from a different program. Is there a difference in speed? The job that prints slow may have graphics or require more memory then it use to. Perhaps you changed the graphics content on the page and the printerr is taking more time to process it. Adding more memory to the printer can help that.

Did you make any software change to the printer about the same time you noticed the slow down?
Have you changed the font color in the computer to something other than black for that particular print job? I've seen monochrome (black and white) laser printers slow down because its trying to convert the job to say violet or some other color. Its a black text printer and apparently printing color confuses it ..lol My bet is..if you really sit down and think back...something changed in the content of what your printing thats taking it longer to process it. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Dell 1720 lazer printer only printing solid black pages

The corona wire is not charging the drum properly. Try pulling the toner cartridge out and then re-seating it. If this doesn't work, try a new toner cartridge as the corona wire is usually included in the cartridge.

If you are using a refill toner, there's an outside chance that the supplier put toner with the wrong electric charge in the cartridge. Again, changing the cartridge should fix this(assuming the replacement is from another batch).

Dell 3010cn prints only blank pages


Dear Anna: Like your problem is related with the laser unit (ROS ASS), I mean, the printer do not print to the paper the image that have or could have in the drum.

We need to test if this is the problem. To do this, please, with much care: turn on the printer, wait it do it the initial test (5 to 15 seconds more or less), verify have paper in the correct position and the size too in the tray. Print a "config page", but not from "Windows, instead of the same printer. For do this: press Menu, with the vertical or horizontal litle sparrow , chose "print information", then choose "config page" and press the central key to execute it.(See page 32 of this document: http://configpages.blogspot.com/2012/01/dell-3000cn.html)

If you want, look this links beside: ftp://ftp.dell.com/Manuals/all-products/esuprt_printers_main/esuprt_printers/dell-3010cn_User%27s%20Guide_en-us.pdf.

And: http://configpages.blogspot.com/2012/01/dell-3000cn.html

If the config.page was printed well, the printer is not the problem. Try to uninstall the drivers of this printer and then reinstall the right and updated drives from the DELL web link and test again from Windows now.

But if the config. page was printed "in blanking", we have other problem, like the lasser unit.

If you now how to get out a page was have a paper jam in this printer, do it the following actions, if not, do not follow please, because could cause a major problem.

I will give you the actions to take it if you do not resolve the problem with the indicated. Please give your information that what happened.

My Dell 1720 printer will print a first page of one short line of icons, then print the actual items sent to printer. As it is printing the status window shows printer off line and no toner level.


Chances are the formatter board on your printer is going out, if it is still under warranty i'd call dell otherwise prob cheaper to get a new one

Dell 1720 flashinf replace drum- error.


The second link was the helpful information. Also, to cut through all of that --

If you need to reset the counter:

1. Remove drum kit with toner

2. Make sure all print jobs are flushed otherwise whatever has been sent and not printed will come spewing out.

3. Hold down CANCEL Button until all lights flash through.

4. Slide the drum kit and toner properly into the Printer.

done.
