Sometimes the flap that covers the drum gets bent and catches on the side of the printer, I use a flat screwdriver to pry it out

MY HP LaserJet 2840 has a brand new Toner cartridge. Now it won't print at all and we are getting a "OPC at end of life" prompt. What does this mean?


Imaging drum reach 20,000 (black only) or 5,000 (color), replace the image drum.

Supplies life
The life of the imaging drum depends on the number of black-only or color pages that print jobs
require. Imaging-drum life is also affected each time the device calibrates because calibrating causes the imaging drum to rotate. Imaging-drum life is measured in terms of number of rotations rather than number of pages printed.
The type and length of print jobs also affects drum life. A series of short print jobs uses more drum
life than an equivalent number of pages printed in a single large job. To extend drum life, print
multiple copies of a print job at one time rather than sending the same job to the device multiple times.
The life of a print cartridge depends on the amount of toner that print jobs require. When printing text at 5% coverage, black print cartridges last an average of 5,000 pages and cyan, magenta, and
yellow print cartridges last an average of 2,000 pages. High-capacity cyan, magenta, and yellow print cartridges last an average of 4,000 pages. (A typical business letter has 5% coverage.)

Poor copy quality - smudgy copies - changed toner - still the same.


check your OPC drum life, if you have a poor quality with a new cartridge installed (light copy, dirty copy) the opc drum must be replaced, check you machine counter if you have reach 100k copies you need to replace the drum, if you are using a new OPC DRUM, you need to clean the machine, you have to call for service because there is many parts that muat removed to clean properly.

How do I clean white or black spots on printed documents? Description: First make 10 to 15 copies of a blank, white sheet of paper.
If you still see the spots on printed documents after making multiple copies, clean the drum unit as follows:

  1. Remove the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly, and then remove the toner cartridge from the drum unit.
  2. Position the print sample in front of the drum unit so you will know the exact position on the drum that is causing the poor print.
  3. all-ug-19.gif
  4. Turn the black gear on the drum as you check the surface of the OPC drum.
    The OPC drum is photosensitive so do not touch it with your fingers.
  5. all-ug-20.gif
  6. When you find the substance on the drum surface that matches the print sample, gently dab the surface of the OPC drum with a cotton swab that is lightly dampened with isopropyl alcohol.
  7. Note
      • Do not use a scrubbing or wiping motion because this might damage the drum.
        all-ug-21.gif
      • Do not try to clean the surface of the OPC drum with a sharp object, such as a ball-point pen, because this might cause permanent damage to the drum unit.
  8. If the print quality still has not improved you need to install a new drum.

I have a 'service call 17h' error condition and was about to use some FixYa instructions that worked last time but this time i am unable to get past first-base, i.e. i cannot remove the OPC drum cartridge...


open the front door and remove the waste toner bottle and transfer belt. use a flat bladed screwdriver in the small hole at the 10 o'clock position of the hole where the toner cartridges are installed. this now allows you to rotate the toner carousel slightly to free the OPC drum and remove it. you will probably find that a toner is not in its slot correctly and jammed against the drum causing the error 17h. use the release mechanism to rotate the carousel and remove all of the toners. check them for any damage, also the OPC drum, power up the printer and refit the parts as requested on the display, being very careful to put the correct toner in the correct slot.

OPC Drum


OPC is organic photo conductor. Not sure what that means but apparently we need it to be able to print stuff. Yours has run out and you need to buy a new one. Should be about £100 apparently. But I'm having trouble finding anywhere that sells them, most people just seem to sell toner cartridges. The part number is 1710591-001 if that helps. Unfortunately I haven't worked out how to fit it either. Sorry. Good luck! (I hate this printer...)
