Dell Laser Printer 1720 - Endless Blank Pages

Hi everyone,

Recently the Dell 1720 Laser printer has been having an issue where as soon as you turn it on, it will start printing blank pages endlessly until the paper tray empties or the printer power is killed. I've tried restarting the machine and clearing the queue on the computer and restarting that, however  as long as the computer is on and the printer is the same, the pages will keep going endlessly.The cancel button on the machine also is not working.

Thanks very much for any assistance,

Charles

It almost sounds like a shipping tape on the fuser that is supposed to be removed before operation.

Have you pulled the toner cartridge out and checked it..

I have tried removing the toner and the shipping tape has been removed. I had a look at the forum post you mentioned and I'm going to try giving a firmware update a shot after trying a driver reinstall and I'll try to post an update ASAP.

Hi everyone,

It turns out the printer was still under warranty so we contacted Dell who resolved the issue by removing and reinstalling the driver. It had to do with a network configuration setup matter as in the office the printer is routed through a single computer to process all requests so it seemed that the computer might have been overloaded.
