Re: Getting an display in the printer.

If you have the manual there is probably a section about this. It does sound like some parts may be wearing out and the printer is asking for new ones. Check out this link: A snip from the info there: If the display panel on your HP laserjet reads "perform printer maintenance", "perform user maintenance", or anything along those lines it means your printer needs a preventative maintenance kit, which includes a fuser and various rollers. Once you have installed the maintenance kit the message will only go away if you clear the maintenance count. For example the laserjet 4000 has a 200,000 page maintenance interval. Once you reach 200,000 pages the error message appears and you need to reset the maintenance count to zero to make the message go away.

Perform printer maintenance message

You need to follow the instructions given in the LaserJet 4300 User Guide which can be found at - go to page 93 of the PDF which describes how to "Perform preventative maintenance". . . The message you are seeing occurs after 200,000 pages have been printed and may require you to purchase and install a new printer maintenance kit to solve the problem.

Hey Joe,
This is what the HP Website has to say about it:

  1. Turn the printer off.
  2. Verify the fuser is properly installed and fully seated.
  3. Turn on the printer.

2. When the memory starts counting on the control panel, press and hold the green SELECT button. Continue to hold green SELECT button until all three Control Panel LED's are illuminated and on solid.
3. Release the green SELECT button.
4. The control panel will display SELECT LANGUAGE.
5. Press the DOWN ARROW button until control panel displays COLD RESET.
6. Press green SELECT button. The printer will perform a cold reset and then continue its power-on sequence.

Cartridges won't align

The HP printer can perform an print cartridge cleaning procedure even after the alignment message has displayed. Follow these steps to perform an print cartridge cleaning procedure at the front panel:
1.On the front panel, press the Menu or Setup button (depending on the model).
1.Press the right arrow button (>) until Maintenance or Tools is displayed, and then press the OK or Enter button (depending on the model).
1.The Clean Print Cartridges message should display on the front panel. Press Enter or OK to begin the cartridge cleaning process.
A page will be printed during the cleaning process with all of the colors on it. If any of the colors (including black) are missing, faded, or streaked on the alignment page, there is a ink cartridge problem.
If you go to HP website you can find more detailed information about alignment. Here is the link.

I need to purchas one maintenance kit for HP 5100 laserjet printer. what contents should be there in manitenance kit. I got no authorised information about this on hp site

To ensure optimum print quality, the printer will prompt you to perform printer maintenance every 150,000 pages. When the PERFORM PRINTER MAINTENANCE message appears on the control panel, you will need to purchase a printer maintenance kit and install the new parts. To check the number of pages the printer has printed, print a configuration page.

To print a configuration page:
1 Press [Menu] until INFORMATION MENU appears.
2 Press [Item] until PRINT CONFIGURATION appears.
3 Press [Select] to print the configuration page.

To order the printer maintenance kit, contact an HP authorized service or support provider. (See the telephone support flyer included with the printer.)

The kit includes:
fuser assembly
transfer roller
feed rollers
necessary instructions

For more information on installing the printer maintenance kit, see the instructions that accompany it.

My hp 4250 printer makes multiple config sheets,,its set to the default of 1 copy (s)


Please perform Cold Reset and then upgrade the firwmare of the printer
HP LaserJet 4250 and 4350 Series Printers - Performing a Cold Reset NOTE: The Jetdirect LAN (such as the IP address of the printer) settings will be reset to defaults by this operation. Record LAN settings before resetting the printer. Reconfigure LAN settings after the reset if you are using a LAN connection). To avoid resetting the LAN settings disable the embedded Jetdirect before performing a Cold Reset by choosing the Disable LAN option from the choices available when you get to step 5 below. Note that after choosing to disable the LAN it is necessary to reboot the printer and then choose to perform the Cold Reset . During the power up sequence only one operation can be performed at a time. In this case, first disable the LAN, then reboot the printer and perform the Cold Reset followed by another reboot to reenable the LAN.
To perform a cold reset:
  1. Turn the printer power off.
  2. Power on the printer and watch for the memory count to begin.
  3. Hold down the SELECT (Checkmark) button, when you see the memory count begin.
  4. Continue holding down the SELECT (Checkmark) button until all three printer control-panel lights flash once and then remain on. This might take up to 10 seconds.
  5. After the message SELECT LANGUAGE appears on the display, press the UP ARROW button or the DOWN ARROW button until COLD RESET appears on the display
  6. Press the SELECT (Checkmark) button. The printer performs a cold reset and then continues its power-on sequence.
  7. Check all I/O settings and reset any user-set printer configuration values. NOTE: Before the I/O (LAN) settings can be reset to their correct values the embedded Jetdirect must first be renabled to make those options visible and available on the control panel of the printer. Renable it in the control panel settings then reset them to their correct values.
