Question about HP LaserJet 2840 Printer

1 Answer

HP Color Laserjet 2840

I was wondering if you explain which slot the memory card goes in? I am confused since there are 4 slots, although it is obvious that it would not fit in all of them but I do not want to ruin the memory card so if you could explain how and where to put the memory card I would greatly appreciate it.

There is only ONE SLOT for expansion memory for the HP 2840. The slot is located behind a cover on the right side of the machine looking from the front. Once you remove the cover you will see the one and only slot available for printer memory expansion. The slots on the front top corner ARE NOT for printer memory expansion but rather for different styles of photo/camera memory to off-load pictures etc...

If you need the printer memory cheaply (about $25.20 for 128MB) go to www.memory.com. They have it in stock.

Hope that helps you. If so, please rate me with a FIXYA. :) If not give me a yell and I'll help you further.

Hello I have a problem with the work printer. It is a 3500 hp color laser jet and it is having a 10.10.00 supply memory error. I'm not sure what to do. Can you please help me?


10.10.00 SUPPLY MEMORY ERROR
Missing memory on supply
Black print cartridge

1. Open and close the front door.
2. Ensure the cartridges are fully seated.
3. Swap the cartridge for the color indicated with a cartridge in another slot to determine whether the error follows the cartridge or stays with the slot. If the error follows the cartridge, replace that cartridge, otherwise, continue with step 4.
4. Check the memory controller PCB contacts to the memory tag. Clean if dirty.
5. Reseat the memory controller PCB connector J201 and DC controller PCB connector J1025.
6. Defective memory controller PCB, replace the memory controller PCB.
7. Defective DC controller PCB, replace the DC controller PCB

Message "card slot not initialized


The HP Color LaserJet 4650 printer also has three flash memory card slots for printer firmware, fonts, and other solutions. The HP Color LaserJet 4610n does not include any available flash memory card slots.
■ The first CompactFlash slot is reserved for printer firmware.
NOTE Use the first flash memory card slot for firmware only. The slot is marked “Firmware Slot.”
■ The two additional CompactFlash memory slots in the HP Color LaserJet 4650 printer enable the user to add fonts and third-party solutions, such as signatures and personalities. The slots are marked "Slot 2" and "Slot 3."
--- These card slots are located inside the Formater unit. Most likely you either are missing the firmware card or it's defective.
Hope this helps!
good luck!

Try this.

1. Turn the printer on.
2. When the memory count start Press and Hold the "Menu" button.
3. Release the "Menu" button when all 3 LEDs are illuminated.
4. Press the 'back' button.
5. The display will then show "Initialize disks".
6. Press the green "Check" button to start the process. This will take some time.
7. The printer will automatically come back to "Ready" after this procedure.

If the above doesn't work, you may have a bad memory card.

How to install new ram into the 2840


Unplug the machine. On the right side of the machine you will find a cover. Remove the cover and you will find 1 open slot. The machine can take a total of 224MB (96 is built into the machine) leaving 128 available. The memory type is 100pin, 133MHz, SDRAM DIMM.

Simply click the memory into the blank slot and replace the cover.

Once completed, plug the machine back in and print a configuration page. The memory total should be at 224 once you have installed your 128MB.

Good Luck

2840 Memory Cards not recognized


Have you got it fixed yet ?

If not, are you quite handy with a Philips screwdriver ?

I have managed to fix mine by looking on the HP service forum under a post called "LJ 2840 seen as LJ 2830". Just g00gle it.

Have added my comments at the end of the post.

Good luck.
