HP 2840 says install magenta when it is installed

My work office just replaced the magenta cartridge a month ago when i told us to install. It came up again today and the cartridge isn't even empty yet. It happens once a month usually. Is there a way to fix this or is it a mechanic thing like the sensor gone on it? Help!!

All of the cartridges are self-contained so i'm sure it's a bad cartridge.

This machine is a pain, as you probably know.

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.

Dumb question. Did you pull the strip from the toner cartidge? OEM or aftermarket? I would try the old cartidge and see if it changes if you don't have the old cartridge anymore I would contemplate replacing the one you just purchased or taking it back to where you purchased it and get an exchange for a defective cartridge.

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.

Photosmart C5280. Instructions on photo cartridge 348 say remove both black and colour cartridges, then install photo cartridge in right hand cartridge holder. Printer screen then tells me to install...


Your printer uses the following cartridges:

HP 74 - Black ink
HP 75 - Cyan, Magenta, and Yellow ink
HP 99 - Photo Black, Light Cyan, and Light Magenta

You need Photo Black, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Light Cyan, and Light Magenta to print photos. To accomplish this you install the HP 99 photo cartridge where your HP 74 black cartridge usually goes and you keep the HP 75 color cartridge where it's at. I don't know why your printer told you to remove both cartridges, then reinstall the HP 75 color cartridge.

Catridge installed but says its not


I have seen this issue before. Evry time I have seen it it has been when a refurbished/generic cartridge is used. I actually went thru 7 cartridges before I found one that continued to work properly. I would recomend getting a cartridge made by the manufacturer of your printer. I would also try to get a refund on the defective cartridges. By the way I have been working on printers/faxes/copiers for over 20 years. I hope this helps.

Re-installing yellow cartridge in HP 2840


There is a gray button right of the LCD display that has a black arrow circling clockwise and four color dots (magenta/black/cyan/yellow). Push it until you see the "Rotating to Yellow" in the LCD display, then open up the top of the printer by pushing the big gray latch next to the picture card reader at the right front of the printer. You now have access to the cartridge. pull it out and examine it. If it is a new cartridge, check to see if you pulled the plastic dam strip out (which keeps the toner in place in shipment etc).

Toner refill kits for hp 2840


I have the same problem. Happended under warentee and the HP techs have replaced about everything but the printer's shell. They fix one thing and break another, but refuse to replace the printer and we are going on 5-6 service calls.

It all started when I replaced the magenta toner. BTW the HP techs constantly lie about what they did and when they will be back.
