The brake release as the photo will show is to the right under the cartridge access door.

Error code 093-921


If you are seeing any or all of these error codes on the Dell 3130cn Laser Pinter that there is a Firmware Update to address this issue. However, the firmware cannot be applied when there is an error present, so first try reseating all toners. You may need to repeat this several times before errors are cleared. Once error-free, download the Firmware from the Dell Support website and apply.

Reset the Cyan toner properly.

HP CP1025 print cartridge carousel not rotates.


If this printer is more than one year old, it may be less expensive to replace it. Sound like one of the drive gears or a motor has failed. Error lights/codes may indicate where the problem lies. These printers are notorious for stripping gears, especially if you are using non-HP branded toner cartridges.

This error is a developer motor error not related to any color. Check the back of the printer to make sure that there is no paper jam in the exit assembly. Reseat all cartridges and restart. If it still does not start then the developer motor is probably shot.

Error # 54.2 for a hplj4550


There is a problem with the carousel assembly.
Either it isn't rotating or the sensor is bad.
Power cycle the printer and see if the error resets.
Open the color toner door and look for an obstruction.
I'm doing this from memory...there is a carousel brake release at the top right of the open toner cover.
It is a slot. If you use a paperclip to push down in that slot, it will release the brake.
Power off the printer.
With the brake released, rotate the carousel. It should move freely.
If you have to, remove the toner one at a time. One of the cartridges could be the problem.
Good luck

HOW DO I FIX THE ERROR 004-332...???


1. Reseat and clean the 4 toner cartridges and verify the orange plastic covers have been removed.
2. Reseat the toner cartridge carousel position. By doing the following:
Lift the handle of the first available toner cartridge or toner cartridge attempting to be installed and remove the toner cartridge.
Close the front cover. Power off the printer. Power on the printer.
An LCD message Insert <toner color> Toner appears. Open the front cover. To reinstall the toner cartridge, align the arrows on the cartridge with the corresponding arrows on the printer, guide the cartridge in until it snaps into place, and then push down the right lever to lock the cartridge in place. Close the front cover. The toner cartridge carousel rotates to the correct toner position.
3. Verify the developer rotor frame is not bent. If it is bent then the printer should be replaced, it would not be cost effective to replace the frame.
4. If it is not bent. Open the front door, try to rotate the carosel. It should NOT rotate. If the rotation is rigid and feels broken, then the printer should be replaced. If it rotates smoothly, the developer latch should be replaced. If the carosel does not rotate but still gives the error the rotor control board should be replaced.

How do i install a toner chip on my hp Cp2025


They're called "toner cartridges."

- See the instructions that came with your printer, but here are the basics

The HP Color LaserJet CP2550 has 4 toner cartridges, one black and three color. Only one cartridge can be changed at a time. They are on a rotating carousel. So you first press the Rotate Carousel button until the cartridge you want to change is selected, then turn off the printer, open the top, pull out the old cartridge, put in the new (being sure it's the correct color), then pull off the tab that keeps the toner from leaking.

HP's toner cart installation instructions are at
http://bizsupport2.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00242813/c00242813.pdf

and the general manual is at
http://bizsupport2.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00242826/c00242826.pdf

toner cart stuff starts on page 12.

I have followed the instructions exactly for replacing the black toner cartridge on my Magicolor 2300 DL, but i still have the error message "Replace Toner Black." I tried taking out the cartridge and...


If you have changed the toner cartridge, the printer must complete a calibration cycle (up to 150 seconds). If you open the door before the Ready indicator on the control panel lights up and the Error indicator turns off, the printer stops and repeats the calibration cycle.

1. Open the Status Display (double-click on Status Display icon in the system tray on the lower right-hand portion of the task bar, OR click Start/Programs/KONICA MINOLTA magicolor 2300W Utilities/KONICA MINOLTA magicolor 2300W Status), and then check which toner color is empty.
2. From the Print menu choose Toner Replace...
3. In the Color list box, select the color of the toner cartridge to be replaced (CYAN, MAGENTA, YELLOW, or BLACK).
4. Select the capacity of the new toner cartridge (1500 or 4500).
5. Click OK.
6. When the toner indicator on the control panel starts flashing, open the printer's front door. The carousel is automatically repositioned so that the appropriate toner cartridge can be removed.
2300-0.gif 7. Insert your thumb and index finger into the two holes in the front of the toner cartridge, and then pull the cartridge straight out about 6" (15 cm).
2300-1.gif8. Support the middle of the cartridge with your left hand, and then pull out the cartridge.
2300-2.gif9. Remove the new toner cartridge from its shipping carton.
10. Remove the protective cover clearly marked 'Remove'.
Each toner cartridge has a colored end that corresponds to a color inside the cartridge slots. Always install the toner cartridge in the slot of the same color.

2300-4.gif11. Support the middle of the cartridge with your left hand, insert the thumb and index finger of your right hand into the two holes in the front of the toner cartridge, and then insert the cartridge so that the guides on the cartridge fit into the rails in the cartridge compartment in the carousel.
2300-5.gif12. Gently push the new toner cartridge into the printer.
13. Close the printer's front door.
The printer must complete a calibration cycle (up to 150 seconds) after any consumable has been replaced. If you open the door before the Ready indicator on the control panel lights up and the Error indicator turns off, the printer stops and repeats the calibration cycle.

Error code 54.2 on a HP printer 4550N


54.2 is a carousel rotation error, could be loose toner that needs cleaning, a cartridge not seated properly, anything that can stop the rotating assembly from turning or sensing that it's turning.

Make sure your using OEM toners. My best guess would be DC controller or high voltage board.
