Hp laserjet p3005 68.1 error coming


The actual error says that the hard drive is bad. I bet that you don't have a hard drive on your printer, so read on...

From the manual

NVRAM initialization
CAUTION Initializing the NVRAM resets the serial number, the event log, the page counts, and
the EIO card (initializing the NVRAM resets SERVICEmenu values to factory defaults). Use the
service menu to restore the serial number and page counts. Also reconfigure any computers that
print to this device so that the computers can recognize the device. Initialize the NVRAM only
when absolutely necessary. In most situations, use a cold reset rather than a NVRAM initialization
to reset device settings (this will retain the values in the SERVICEmenu).
NOTE Before performing a NVRAM initialization, print a menu map and a configuration page
. Use the information on the configuration page to reset
any customer-set device configuration values that the NVRAM initialization procedure changes.
Take special note of the total page count, maintenance count, and the serial number.
1. Remove any installed accessories.
2. Turn the device off.
3. Turn the device on. When the memory count begins, press and hold the button. Continue
holding down the button until all three device control-panel lights flash once and then remain
on. This might take up to 10 seconds.
4. Press the button.
5. Press the Menubutton. The display should show SKIP DISK LOAD.
6. Press the button until NVRAM INITis highlighted.
7. Press . The device initializes NVRAM and then continues the power-on sequ

How to reset an HP printer waste ink tank aborber (only work on certain models)...


Press and hold the “left arrow” key.
Press the “Setup” key and release both keys.
Display should say “Enter Special Key Combo”
Press and release the “OK” button.

The Display should say “Support” and display the FW rev (something like R0616R)

Press and release the right arrow button until the display says “System Configuration Menu”.

Press and release the “OK” button.

The display should say “Hardware failure status”. If not there already, Arrow Key over to “Hardware failure status”,

Press and release the “OK” button.

The display should say “Hardware failure status: Clear. Press OK to clear”.

Press and release the “OK” Button. Message changes to “Hardware failure status Cleared. Press Cancel to continue”.

Press and release the “CANCEL” button as many times as necessary, so that, either the “Welcome to Photosmart Express” screen appears, or, the “Ink System Failure” screen appears.

DO NOT TRY TO PRINT AT THIS STAGE.

Using the Power Button, turn the unit OFF and unplug the power cable from back of the printer and wall outlet.

Wait 30 seconds for the power to get discharged and then plug the power cable into the wall outlet first and then into the back of the printer

Turn the unit on. The printer may display the message “USE POWER BUTTON TO SHUTDOWN THE PRINTER” followed by “PRESS OK TO CONTINUE”.

Press OK. The Printer will start the “ONE TIME INK INITIALIZATION PROCESS”. Allow this process to complete and do not interrupt. Once the initialization process is complete, the printer will print out a Diagnostic Page.

To verify printer functionality print a SELF TEST PAGE. If SELF TEST prints, then printer is ready for use or Software Installation.

CM 1015mfp Colors are not aligned. when printing the characters looks like 3D.


If nothing else works, you may have to manually calibrate the dials inside the mirror box. This video link will show you how. http://youtu.be/R1DIko0a1MA
This may be necessary if the printer got bumped really hard.

When I turn on the printer, it tells me that the right ink side (black)needs to be taken out and re-inserted. I did that, even replacing the cartridge and it didn't help. Can you help?


Hi I only found the may or may not work but it worth a try.


I pressed # and 3 at the same time while plugging the power cord back in

I then made a note of the following messages which display:

selftest
partial reset
initialization
initializing...
used black print cartridge (prompts you to press OK)
used tri-color print cartridge (prompts you to press OK)
displayed date and time as usual


Try the following steps
-disconncet the power cord from the back of the printer
-press and hold # and 6 key simultaneously
-while holding both the keys ...connect the power cord back
- release both the keys
...it will show initilaising ...semi full reset
- see if the error message still persists

HP 4015 NVRAM & hardrive initialization

Solution
A hard disk initialization will erase and reformat the printer's hard disk. Perform hard disk initialization only if an error code displays on the control panel indicating a disk error. Always try initializing the hard disk before replacing it.

1. Turn the printer on. 
2. As the printer performs its power-on sequence, press and hold the Menu button until all three lights on the control panel are lit. 
3. Press the back arrow . The message INITIALIZE DISK displays on the control panel. 
4. Press OK. The printer initializes the hard disk and continues the power-on sequence.


CAUTION: Initializing NVRAM resets the serial number, the model number, the event log, the page counts, and the EIO card. Use the SERVICE menu to restore the serial number and page counts. You also need to reconfigure any computers that print to this printer to recognize the printer. Initialize NVRAM only when absolutely necessary. In most situations, use a cold reset to return printer to factory defaults but still retain the needed values in the SERVICE menu. 

 NVRAM initialization
Before initializing NVRAM, print a configuration page and a supplies status page to gather the service menu values

1. Turn the printer on and watch the control panel display. 
2. When the display shows the memory count, press and hold the down arrow until all three lights on the control panel are lit
3. Press the up arrow . 
4. Press Menu . The message SKIP DISK LOAD displays on the control panel. 
5. Press the up arrow until NVRAM INIT is highlighted, and then press OK. The printer initializes NVRAM and then continues its power-on sequence.

daca aceasta procedura nu reuseste, atunci va trebui sa inlocuiesti formatter-ul. daca nu exista hard disk

Good luck
