Take out the glass and clean optics, mirrors etc. Very important clean the white stripe underneath the cover that is attached to the left side of glass. That should take care of L1.

System error "E000"


Reset the device when it does not respond. If the device does not respond, disconnect and then reconnect the power cord. At the device or at the electrical outlet, disconnect the power cord or adapter. Wait approximately ten seconds and then reconnect the power cord. Wait until the device has completed its cycling process before submitting another job request. If this doesn't work try reseting If all else fails I would suggest taking it to a qualified service center. Hope this helps:) Jason

I use a CM2320nf MFP connected to Windows XP. The unit seems to be defaulted to print 2 pages - and for double sided copies, it stops after 2 pages, then the Cleaning window pops up, then I get an error...


Problem 1 :
As far as the machine printing 2 pages per job. To fix this it's usually the default number of copies the printer is set to. To change/ confirm the setting is set to one:
Press the menu button
Arrow down to -> Printing, Press the green check to enter the menu
Arrow down to -> Copies Press the green check to enter the menu
Change or confirm the value = 1, (Based on your question this might be set to 2) Press the green save the value.
* If your number of copies is set to 1 and the machine is still printing 2 copies, then the problem relays in your print driver.

Problem 2: General Misprint Error message something like 41.3
2 things to check:

1st - Press the menu button
Arrow down to Paper Handling, Press the green check to enter the menu
Now you will see options like Tray 1 size - Tray 1 type. Here their will be a option for each tray installed on your machine. You will go into each tray option and confirm the paper size and type.
Example
Tray 1 Size = Envelope #10 (This is the manual feed tray)
Tray 1 Type = Envelope
Tray 2 Size = Letter
Tray 2 Type = Plain

To perform arrow down to tray X size press the green check to access the menu, arrow up or down to select your paper size. Once the paper size is selected press the green check to save it. repeat for each tray.

2nd -
Pull out your tray and remove the paper, towards back of the tray you will see a guide (Tab) in the middle of the tray which allows you to expand the tray to accept various paper sizes, Please confirm the guide is set to the correct type. If your using letter, make sure the guide is set to letter (LTR) you can see these codes by looking at the base of the guide, their is a little arrow pointer.

Hope this helps

Flashes 40 and then C 3 or 3 C and says to turn machine off and back on. I have found if I open the door and turn those knobs, shut back up and make sure that it is for the letter size auto setting that I...


If you mean its flashing "E3-40" ..then it thinks there is a problem with the copy density sensor.
This sensor is located near the drum inside the machine.May just be dirty.
Doubt if this is something the average user can fix.

HP Color Laserjet 2840 now makes ear-splitting whine every time


Did the noise start right after you replaced a toner? If so it must be a bad toner which is causing the gears to grind. If this noise happened out of the blue then it might be a bad fuser drive gear which is the gears that connect the fuser to the machine.

Grinding noise crooked copies machine shakes


This won't be solved without a technician I'm afraid. It sounds to me like the fuser drive gears are worn ( it could be just about anywhere though), but this would account, in many cases, for the crooked , blurred print. whatever the case, there are gears worn, or seized, and in need of replacement. I would recommend calling for service asap, becuse this type of problem will only get worse and could cause further damage to the surrounding drive system the more it is used.

Paper error


I hope that this can help someone else as it has taken me all day to fix this issue on a C6180 all-in-one machine. I will ignore the normal solutions to a "paper mismatch" error such as your settings not matching your printing media. Obviously, check these first:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com

If your problem is not solved with the above steps, you have an issue with your "spot sensor" and it needs to be calibrated. Instructions:

1. Press * and # at the same time, and then release both keys.
The display reads "Enter Special Key Combo".
2. Press 3, 2, and then 9, releasing each key before pressing the next. 
The display window should read "Service: R0622M" with a revision number. 
3. Press the right arrow button once.
The display should read "System Configuration".
4. Press Enter or OK.
5. You will be prompted to enter serial number. Do not enter any information
on the unit.
Press the right arrow button until "media sense calibration" appears in the
display.
6. Load Paper into the unit and then press Enter or OK.
7. Media Sense Calibration process will take place.

It is one of the rare times that HP chat has fixed my printer at no cost and instantly. Here is a full transcript describing my issue and the HP chat solution:
