The photoconductor drum is an important part of your Dell printer (1700, 1700n, 1710, 1710n, 1720d, 1720dn, 2230d) and must be replaced after 30,000 prints. Though not replaced under warranty, you can purchase a new drum at www.dell.com.

The photoconductor drum is past end of life and must be replaced. The printer will no longer print until the photoconductor is replaced and the counter reset. This alert turns on when the photoconductor is well past 30,000 prints.

Once you replace the photoconductor, you may still see the message, "Photoconductor has reached end of life."

To reset the counter and clear this message:

  1. Open the front cover of your printer.
  2. Press and hold the red X (cancel) button until the front panel lights flash.
  3. Release the button.
  4. When the lights stop flashing and you see the "(!)" (error) message, close the front cover.
  5. The front panel lights will cycle again as the printer starts.
  6. After the lights cycle, the printer is ready.
