HP laserjet 100 mfp blue line

I had the same kind of problem with the same printer.
The problem started with yellow toner powder 'leaking' inside the printer and contaminating the printed documents.

After inspection, the yellow cartridge showed what seamed to be like caked/cluttered powder between the magnetic roller and the doctor blade.
I dismantled the cartridge to realise the 'caked/cluttered powder' was in fact a sponge material. The internal 'spongy' toner feeder roller was damaged and little pieces of the material was coming out of the cartridge.

After further inspection inside the printer (all cartridges and drum removed), I found two little pieces of the same material stuck between the kevlar roll and the metallic housing underneath it. (going up, from bottom to top, you have the pile of paper in the feeder -> horizontal metallic plate -> kevlar roll -> toner carousel.)
I used a strip of heavy paper (200g) to gently remove the two sponges, set two clean jobs and the problem was solved.
The kevlar roll is also accessible from the printer's back door, some material may also be stuck in this location.

HP 4000n spitting out extra toner. Replaced cartridge and still having the same issue. Any suggestions?

The laser printer actually has a collection area for excess toner located under the toner cartridge. When that is full you will get extra toner coming out and streaking your paper. Take the collection chamber out and clean that out or replace it and you should be good.

SHARP AR-287 F2-00 error code

Although this appears to be an ATC (automatic toner control) problem and it may list as such in service manual which gives brief description of error code it is often something else.
There is a sponge roller at bottom of toner that wears down considerably and when the hopper is very low or out of toner the otner light will come on(triangle of dots). The customer puts the new toner in and the sudden surge of a large amount of toner cascading into the hopper causes an excessive amount of toner to go past the sponge roller and directly into the developer unit which is directly under toner hopper.
The ATC sensor is on the bottom of developing unit and "reads" the density of the developer /toner ratio and with a very overtoned situation as the one created above you would get an F2-00 code.
What is normally done is to either dump toner out of hopper and replace sponge roller and seals or replace toner hoppers as a whole which is quicker and costs almost rh same as cahnging the sponge roller and seals is more labor intensive.
Also the developer is now contaminated with an excessive amount of toner and the recommende solutin is to replace the developer and calibrate theu service program.
This is hardley recommended by a service man unfamiliar with this mode let alone the customer. I ahve been in the Bay Ridge area for years and as a matter of fact bought an investment property thru Petses Realty. Frank

I have a Sharp AR-507. Error F2-00. How to fix?

It could also be the sponge roller in the toner hopper. The old ones started to deteriorate after a while so sharp modified them.

Ricoh cl4000dn toner bottle sensor

The toner bottle sensors don't go bad too often. Do you have an extra yellow toner bottle? Try replacing that first. Compare the tray where the yellow toner bottle sits to the other three colors, and make sure nothing where the toner bottle connects is broken or bent.

Laserjet4 plus

I have actually paid for this problem to be looked at, only to be told that I need a new toner cartridge. Replace the toner first, then, if that does not solve the problem, try wiping the sponge roller with a clean dry lint-free cloth. The sponge roller is the just beyond the metal at the bottom of the area where the toner sits while installed. You will need to remove the toner to see the sponge roller. DO NOT touch the sponge roller with your bare fingers. I recommend wearing clean, powder free disposable gloves.
