How to reset supplies on HP 2840 laserjet?


"Would like report of supplies from 2840 laserjet. How to get it to show report"

Select 'Menu" button, then select "Reports", then select "Supplies Report".

This will print the status of the four toner cartridges and the drum.

It doesn't make sense to reset toner cartridges UNLESS you refill them
first. On the HP 2840 each cartridge/drum contains a chip that measures
the life of the unit.

You can purchase toner/chip combinations online cheaper than new
cartridges. I also purchase drum chips to extend the use of my drum
until print quality actually starts to deteriorate.

I use both of these methods to save money on supplies - buy toner and
toner chips, buy drum chip to get full use of drum unit.

Hope this helps.

We have an HP Color Laserjet 2840 printer in our office. We were low on our black ink drum, bought a new drum and installed it. Copies are coming out perfectly but the "replace black...


The 2840 is a slightly different sort of machine when it comes to supplies. There is a main imaging drum unit which works for all four colors, and then there of course are the 4 colors. If the unit was asking for a drum unit then you should have instaled a Q3964A. It is entirely possible that your drum unit and black cartridge both expired at the same time, in which case, you need a black toner cartridge now.

Thank you for contacting FixYa with your printer inquiry.
The low ink could definitely be the problem thats prompting the error. To begin troubleshooting print the supply status page and confirm the state of the various supplies. Follow the steps below:
Supplies Status page The Supplies Status page lists the remaining life of the HP print cartridges and the HP imaging drums. It also lists the estimated pages remaining, number of pages printed, and other supplies information. You can print a Supplies Status page from the device or the HP Toolbox. To print from the device, complete the following steps. 1. On the control panel menu, press MENU. 2. Use the button to select Reports, and then press ENTER 3. Use the button to select Supplies Status, and then press ENTER. Note Supplies information is also available through the HP Toolbox.
This page illustrates conditions of consumables for Toner Cartridges, Image Drums, Image Transfer Kits, and Fuser Kits. It also provides ordering information and methods for disposing of or recycling used supplies.
Supplies information is also available through the HP Toolbox.
Areas of Supply Status Page: 1. Print-cartridge area. This area contains a section for each of the print cartridges and provides information about HP print cartridges. This information includes the part number for each print cartridge, whether each print cartridge is low, and the life remaining for each print cartridge expressed as a percentage, as a graphic, and as the estimated number of pages remaining. This information might not be provided for non- HP supplies. In some cases, if a non-HP supply is installed, an alert message appears instead. 2. Imaging-drum area. This area contains the same information for the imaging drum that the print-cartridge area provides for the print cartridges. 3. Warranty Note. This section contains information about how the device warranty is affected when you use non-HP supplies. It also requests that you call the HP fraud hotline if a supply that is being detected as a non-HP supply was sold to you as a genuine HP supply. (See HP fraud hotline.) 4. Ordering Information. This section contains basic information about how to order new HP supplies. See Checking status and ordering supplies. 5. Recycling Information. This section contains a link to the website that you can visit for information about recycling. See Replacing and recycling supplies.

The HP Color Laserjet 2840 Is a Very Good Reliable Printer. I'm curious if you are buying American made components or cheap components from some thrid world country sold at ahuge retailer. They really should stand behind their laser drums, but if they don't then shop over at www.officeinks.com or www.wowsuperdeal.com and Purchase American Made Toner Cartridges and Laser Drums. Office Inks has a 1 year satisfaction and quality guarantee and free return shipping if their ink, toner, drums, ribbons etc, don't make you happy. Only Ships USA Though.

Replaced black toner..now printer won't print any


In this case, actually it is not the Black toner that got depleted. Here the message being displayed indicate that one of the color Toner supply need to be replaced as it got depleted and currently the printer is printing in Black and white using the Black toner cartridge.

in this case, to troubleshoot these issues please try performing the following and check for the results.

* 1. Check for the level of the toner cartridges:

a) Check from the HP Toolbox application. Here are the steps to be performed from your PC:

* Access the Toolbox software.
* Select the Status tab.
* Select the Device status option.

Here you can check for the supplies status in terms of the % remaining for each toner cartridges.

b) By checking the supplies status from the printer control panel display.

On the printer display when printer is in Ready mode the supplies status can be checked from the supplies level indicator. Each toner cartridge and the Imaging drum level will be indicated by a bar which varies according to the level of the supplies present.

c) Print the supplies status page from the printer.

* On the printer control panel menu, press Menu .
* Use the (Right Arrow) button to select Reports, and then press Enter .
* Use the (Right Arrow) button to select Supplies Status, and then press Enter .

If any of the color toner cartridges and the Imaging drum have a low supply level replace them with genuine HP print cartridges.

The part numbers of the consumables are as follows:

* Black print cartridge - Q3960A
* Cyan print cartridge - Q3971A
* Magenta print cartridge - Q3973A
* Yellow print cartridge - Q3972A
* Imaging Drum - Q3964A

HP 2840, black ink drum q3964a


Hello, these printers tend to be finicky.

In other words, just replace the black toner. When the printer says its low, or empty, regardless of wether or not it is, just replace it.

Replacing the drum, when it says black toner needs to be replaced will do nothing to rectify the issue.

Buy only HP Toner and Drum cartridges for this printer. Do not try to refill toner cartridges, and do not reset drum. You will only end up destroying your printer in the process.

Are you sure that all transport tape is removed from the new drum? Check the drum closely and see if there is anything that diff from the old one. If it doesn't work correct, sometimes it's stucked, try replace it at your reseller.

For Flexer and Guest - The Imaging Drum Assy is the 5-th consumable for your printer. U can buy it as well as any toner cartridge. U can find it in the front of the 4 toner carousel with a green plastic cover. Push it to the back of the printer and pull it out straight up. The new one has orange stripes and plastics that you should remove. The Imaging Drum's life is about 20k pages (black with 5% coverage) and 5k page (colour 15% coverage)
