I have m1217nfw is there convertor to power from 110v to 220v

I have worked on laserjets for years now and have never heard of a power convertor. The power supply will be a 110v device and if you want to use it in the uk you will need to replace it with a 220v one. I am unable to find a parts list for a laserjet M1217. However you must look for the C number which will be on a label. Note this and go to site and click on the parts link. Enter the c number and it should find what parts are available. If it does not find anything then HP will not supply parts but as its a laserjet there should be some available.

My printer displays a 51.23 error, what to do? hp laserjet pro cm1415fn color mfp

These errors appear to be a laser failure error. There are a few suggestions out there for you to try on your own like the one on this page from sharuel that worked for him.
It is unlikely you can resolve this yourself, but to unplug the printer for 15 minutes, and then plug it back and see if the error cleared. This can sometimes be caused by power fluctuation, so if the printer is connected to a UPS or powersurge protector, try to connect it directly to the wall.
Also here is a link to a page showing what the error message means and suggestions on what to do which are basic steps related to the error message.
If all this fails, there is no other option but getting HP or a technician to service the printer.
If I helped you at all it would be great if you clicked the blue kudos star!

If I solved your post please mark it as solved to help others.

I'm a printer tech with HP.

I need a power cord for this phone and i plugged in another power cord to see if it would work and it popped and some smoke came out of the hole where the charger plugs into , do you think i could have...

Yes, the polarity of the charger you used was probably wrong for the phone. The power circuit is probably fried. It would cost nearly as much to fix that as it would be to get a new phone.
Always make sure to check charge polarity and voltage before plugging chargers into just any devices. Some will work, but as you found in this case, some don't and can do substantial damage.

Error code 71

That is a laser alignment issue...
You might get lucky:

1. unplug printer power cord from wall or powerstrip.
2. Turn ON printer (without the powercord plugged in).
3. Plug in powercord and turn ON printer again.

If error code 71 remains .... repeat above steps.... but I would advise replacing ($180 ~ $240) instead of repairing ($150)...

Hope this helps!

HP LaserJet M1522nf MFP No Fax detected

The book says
No fax detected
The product answered the incoming call but
did not detect that a fax machine was calling.
This could be really tricky. The missed faxes could be just random wrong number or recorded sales calls that are dialing you machine.
If you are sure they are fax machines calling then we get into phone line issues and that sort of thing. If you get static or noise on the line it can affect your machines ability to hear the other machine. I saw somewhere tha replceing the cord form the wall to the fax helped some people with a similar problem.
You can always try turning the machine off and unplugging it for awhile this is a common suggetion from HP for almost any product with a problem.
Hope this helps
