Displays a message "perform printer maintenance" What maintenance am I supposed to do?
This means that the printer is due for it's scheduled maintenance. Things like paper feed rollers, separation roller, transfer roller and fusing unit are due. Now if I were you I would just ignore it as long as you are not having a lot of jamming problems or double imaging/print rubbing off issues. I have seen these HP's run way past the maintenance schedule. You will do absolutely no harm if you continue to run it. The parts that are due to be replaced will continue to wear and eventually you may have to do at least some or all of the maintenance but for now I would not worry about it at all unless like I said you are having problems. As a side note I work on HP laser printers for school districts that do not want to spend money on printers so I have seen lots of these printers with the "perform maintenance" indicators on for a year or more with no problems.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.
