Try substituting a new imaging drum. The problem may be a bad bearing.

Noisy printer


The printer or the drum/toner unit may cause the grinding or clicking noise.
  1. Power off the printer and open the front cover.
  2. Remove the drum/toner unit and close the front cover.
  3. Power the printer back on.
If the grinding or clicking noise dose not occur when the drum/toner unit is removed from the printer, then the drum/toner unit is the cause of the noise. Install a brand new drum unit and/or toner cartridge may be necessary to stop the noise.

I have an HP 4515 that is printing blank pages. I have tried to replace the toner and the power supply board. Neither resolved the issue. When the paper gets deliver out the paper is warm. This occurs when...


I believe I understand your issue:-
The printer is able to come to ready- your still able to navigate the menus. the printer goes through all the motions of printing except producing an image-
Having the machine print a test page ( internal Print ) tests whether the formatter is still able to generate a digital image ready for the print engine, but does not diagnose the print engine-
1) power down and remove power cord
2)remove the toner cartridge, use a pair of pliers and gently rotate the drum ( within the toner cartridge, a drive gear/mesh can be found on the end of the toner unit)- are you able to turn this drum or has it seized?
if it doesnt replace the new toner with another NEW toner and try again
3) return the power and power up the machine having first disconnected all network connections.
allow the machine to come to ready.
4) ask the printer for a config page ( internal print) and estimate when the paper is immediately below the drum surface ( toner cart) and using the power switch turn the printer off- causing a jam in the centre of the printer - this is ok we do this to see if an image has been generated on the drum surface- remove the toner cartridge and slide the drum protector plate to the side, look carefully at the drum suface ( you should see a latent image of a config page, at this point look at the paper still jammed inside the printer and see if there are any signs of toner ( there should be part of an image allready on the surface ) now if there is an image on the drum but no image on the paper then I would replace the transfer roller and or transfer HVT power unit, if however there is no image on the drum then you have a very serious problem which will require a new laser unit ( but this should really come up with a diagnostic error code)or Primary HVT unit.

After changing toner it displays the call service 7410-0066564


Error 7410 - Drum unit non- installing error

The drum unit is not installed or not installed properly.
Install the drum unit (See page P.1-5-10 of your operation guide). See image below.

The numbers after 7410- are the number of pages printed on this printer.

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.)

Checking the toner cartridge
Image formation defects are many times the result of problems in the toner cartridge. If there is any doubt, always replace the toner cartridge before troubleshooting image defects.
Use the following checklist to make sure that the toner cartridge is still operable.
" Make sure that the toner cartridge is seated properly.
" Inspect the toner cartridge for toner level.
" Check the expiration date stamped on the toner cartridge box.
" Check the toner cartridge to see if it has been disassembled or refilled.
" Inspect the toner cartridge to see if toner is leaking through worn seals.
" Check the surface of the photosensitive drum in the cartridge to see if it has been damaged or scratched. Touching the drum contaminates the photosensitive surface and can cause spotting
and image defects.
" Blurred areas on printed pages indicate that the photosensitive drum in the cartridge has been overexposed to light. Because overexposure to light causes permanent damage to the photosensitive drum, the cartridge should be replaced.
Note A toner cartridge weighs approximately 863 grams (30.5 oz) when it is full, approximately 766 grams (27.0 oz) when it first fades, and approximately 742 grams (26.2 oz) when it is empty.

To redistribute toner in the cartridge

Before installing a new cartridge or when toner begins to run low, redistribute the toner by rotating the cartridge back and forth five or six times.

My laserjet printer started making load noises and no longer prints-the last thing printed only printed the top 3inches and then was all black, it then stopped working altogether


Use the following checklist to ensure that the print cartridge is still operable:
  • Ensure that the print cartridge is seated properly.
  • Inspect the print cartridge for remaining toner.
  • Check the expiration date stamped on the print cartridge box.
  • Check the print cartridge to see if it has been disassembled or refilled.
  • Inspect the print cartridge to see if toner is leaking through worn seals.
  • Check the surface of the photosensitive drum in the print cartridge to see if it has been damaged or scratched. Touching the drum contaminates the photosensitive surface and can cause spotting and image defects.
  • Blurred areas on printed pages indicate that the photosensitive drum in the print cartridge has been overexposed to light. Because overexposure to light causes permanent damage to the photosensitive drum, the cartridge should be replaced.

The HP LaserJet 1100 series printer cannot print to the edge of the paper, to get the image to fit into this printable area, slightly reduce the size of the image.

try this and let me know, also check the status of the toner.

In cases of print quality issues you should always start with the imaging drum. In this case the toner cartridge. Make sure it is not a re-manufactured or refurbished toner cartridge. A lot of times when someone refurbishes the cartridge they don't replace the imaging drum (the blueish green drum under the shutter). Check for toner stuck or burned on the drum. If there is you need to replace the toner cartridge

If there is no toner stuck or burned on the imaging drum then you more than likely you will need to check or replace the Fuser in the back of the machine. The back door of the machine comes out easily enough and the fuser clips into place. **Be careful it doing to be hot.** Remove the fuser and check the rollers inside for burned toner or damage. If so replace the fuser .

You can purchase a Fuser Kit from HP or find a refurbished fuser from Depot America or OrionMarket.com for a lot less.

HP color laser 2550L prints only in yellow


Hi Mmgrafde,

Press the Go and Rotate Carousel buttons simultaneously. This will calibrate the printer. See if this works.

Otherwise....Remove all cartridges and drum. Switch off printer. Close the lid. Switch on printer and wait until any churning stops. Insert the drum and close the lid. Wait until any churning stops. Put in one cartridge at a time, closing the lid and wait till it stops churning each time. With the last cartridge put in, it will churning longer (calibrating). Try to print from your computer.

It could also be that the toner could actually have run out for the other colors.

Image Drum
Life expectancy approximately 15,000 pages, assuming an average of 3 pages per print job. If the average print job is longer than this, the image drums could last longer, but if the average print job is shorter, then image drums will be used more quickly. See Image Drum.
