My HP Laserjet 2840 all in one beeps when printing
Hi there, my HP printer suddenly started beeping everytime it prints a page. There's no error message just an annoying beep while it prints. I tried adjusting the volume settings on the menu but it makes no difference. Is there some way of disabling that? Thanks C

I have a HP Color LaserJet 2840. If I am ... My Color LaserJet 2840 will only print on the right side of the page, how can I fix this? ... If I am copying or printing from the computer, the printer will only print the right side of the page. ... something obstructing the laser scanner blocking that side of the media path.
power off the printer. removed the network cable only. power on until it display ready. now print a config sheet or menu map. if it print without error then connect the network cable and print config sheet again. wait and observed. if it will start printing garbage then KILL the print jobs queued on the printer. after deleting all print jobs power off and power on printer with network cable connected. I hope that will fix the problem. by the way. was there any error display in the panel display like "49.4C02". etc.
Press MENU. Press the left or right arrows and select REPORTS. ENTER PRESS < or > and select CONFIG REPORTS. ENTER
Now what does the output look like? If it is bad...try the same thing but pull out tray 2 about an inch and put paper in tray 1. If both of these tests come out good, you probably have a problem with the printer drivers. Download them from hp.com.
Did the noise start right after you replaced a toner? If so it must be a bad toner which is causing the gears to grind. If this noise happened out of the blue then it might be a bad fuser drive gear which is the gears that connect the fuser to the machine.
