HP LaserJet 4250n: How to print a config page

Almost all modern printers have the ability to print out a configuration page -- a pre-formatted page with all sorts of information about the printer and its status. The items found on a config page will vary from printer to printer, but typically they include the network address and other network settings, a list of optional features that have been installed, the printer's page count (number of pages printed), and possibly the current ink levels. For color printers, the page count is typically broken up into black and white (or monochrome) and color.

To print a config page on an HP LaserJet 4250n, follow these steps:

A. If the printer is not already powered on and warmed up, turn it on now. Then hit the Menu button (the gray button to the left of the display screen.)

B. Using the down arrow button, scroll down once to Information and hit the Select button (the green button with the check mark on it).

C. Hit the down arrow button again to scroll down to Print Configuration and hit the Select button again.

The config page -- which might actually be two pages if you have a JetDirect print server -- will print out immediately if the machine was at the Ready screen when you started, or it will print out as soon as the printer warms up if you just turned it on. The display screen will automatically return to Ready.

If the printer is currently in an alert state -- because of a paper jam, empty ink cartridge, lack of paper, or other problem -- it won't be able to print the configuration page. Remedy the problem shown on the display screen and try again.

hp 1020 printer total page count information


Hi, what operating system are you using? In Windows XP you can view the page count by doing the following:

- Go to the printer's Properties window (click the Start button, go to the Control Panel and click on Printers and Faxes, right click on the printer and choose Properties).
- On the General tab, click Preferences.
- On the Basics tab, click About.

You can see the page count in the About window, toward the bottom.

For page count or configuration page instructions on other printers and copiers, check out the How to Print Configuration Pages website. Thanks for using FixYa!

To ensure optimum print quality, the printer will prompt you to perform printer maintenance every 150,000 pages. When the PERFORM PRINTER MAINTENANCE message appears on the control panel, you will need to purchase a printer maintenance kit and install the new parts. To check the number of pages the printer has printed, print a configuration page.

To print a configuration page:
1 Press [Menu] until INFORMATION MENU appears.
2 Press [Item] until PRINT CONFIGURATION appears.
3 Press [Select] to print the configuration page.


To order the printer maintenance kit, contact an HP authorized service or support provider. (See the telephone support flyer included with the printer.)

The kit includes:
fuser assembly
transfer roller
feed rollers
necessary instructions

For more information on installing the printer maintenance kit, see the instructions that accompany it.

Using the HP Toolbox
The HP Toolbox is a Web-based program that you can use for the following tasks:
● Check the printer status.
● Configure the printer settings.
● View troubleshooting information.
● View online documentation.
You can view the HP Toolbox when the printer is directly connected to your computer or
when you are using a supported network connection. You must have performed a complete
software installation to use the HP Toolbox.
NOTE You do not have to have Internet access to open and use the HP Toolbox. However, if you
click a link in the Other Links area, you must have Internet access in order to go to the site
associated with the link. See Other links for more information.
To install the HP Toolbox, you must install the TCP/IP protocol and the most recent version
of the Java™ Virtual Machine on the computer. You must also install the DOT4 protocol for
all USB connections, LPT connections for Windows 2000 and Windows XP, and LPT1
connections for Windows 98 S.E., Windows Me, and Windows NT 4.0. See the system
administrator or computer manufacturer's documentation for more information about
installing the TCP/IP protocol and the DOT4 protocol.
