Hi,
Most HP printers can be reset to factory defaults (or cold-reset ) by turning the printer off and holding down the Online or Go button while turning the printer back on. The printer control panel display should read "Cold Reset" or "Restoring Factory Settings" or something like these lines. This will remove any IP address that the printer had previously.
When you plug it in, your router should have assigned an ip address automatically. Go into your router and look at the attached devices and it will show you what ip address has been assigned to each device on your network.

Use Web Interface or Manually Assign an IP address NOTE: Network HP Printers allow you to manage them via Internet Explorer. You can enter the IP address that the printer currently has and access its configuration settings. This assumes that the web interface hasn't been locked.
NOTE: We recommend that you install the latest version of Sun's Java software before trying these steps. See this How To: How to Update Sun's Java 2 Runtime Environment Plug-in.

  1. Print the Configuration page if needed. You will be entering the "current" IP Address.
  2. Open Internet Explorer. Delete EVERYTHING from the Address line.
  3. Enter the IP Address in the Address line and press Enter.
  4. You should then connect to the printer. If this fail, go to the next section to assign the IP address manually.

    NOTE: There are 2 basics versions of the web interface. Type 1 is on newer printers. Type 2 is on older models

  5. Type 1: Click the Networking tab.
    Type 2: Click the Administration button. Click the Configuration tab.

  6. Edit the IP address, Subnet Mask, and Gateway as needed.
  7. Do not change any other fields.
  8. Scroll to the bottom and click Apply. Click OK.
  9. Close Internet Explorer.
  10. Restart the Printer. Print the Configuration page to see if number was set.
NOTE: If the above steps do not allow you to assign the IP address via the Wizard, you will need to do it through at the printer itself.
  1. Go to this HP Support Page.

    Configuring TCP/IP through the Front Control Panel

  2. Click the link to your printer model. Highlight these steps.
  3. From the File menu choose Print. In the Page Range section, click Selection. Click Print.

    Note: For the complete printer user guide, go to the HP Printers Support & Troubleshooting page. Locate your specific printer type and model. On its home page, under self-help resources, click the manuals link. Download the printer's User Guide (not the Getting Started Guide). Look for steps to manually configure TCP/IP parameters from the printer control panel.

  4. Follow the steps from the printout to assign the desired IP Address to the printer.

    IP address will be entered at the IP BYTE prompt
    Subnet mask is entered at SM BYTE prompt
    Gateway address is entered at GW BYTE prompt

    Note: The syslog server IP address (LG BYTE 1=) and timeout (TIMEOUT=) do not need configured.

  5. Once the IP Address is entered, restart the Printer. Print the Configuration page to see if number was set.

Hope this helps

The hp color laser jet 2840 does not print. message "50.2 fuser error" appears


HP recommended checks: 1. adequate 120 VAC power supply, 2. Remove Fuser Assembly, wait 5 minutes and then reseat. 3. Reset the printer to Factory Default settings (remember to copy down the IP address, mask and gateway numbers first).

While this may solve the problem, it is much more likely it's time to replace the fuser. Cost is approx $125 if you buy it online. Just do a Google search on HP 2840 fuser.

This link will show you where your fuser is and how to remove and replace it.
