SOURCE: HP 2840, black ink drum q3964a

Hello, these printers tend to be finicky.

In other words, just replace the black toner. When the printer says its low, or empty, regardless of wether or not it is, just replace it.

Replacing the drum, when it says black toner needs to be replaced will do nothing to rectify the issue.

Buy only HP Toner and Drum cartridges for this printer. Do not try to refill toner cartridges, and do not reset drum. You will only end up destroying your printer in the process.

We have an HP Color Laserjet 2840 printer in our office. We were low on our black ink drum, bought a new drum and installed it. Copies are coming out perfectly but the "replace black...


The 2840 is a slightly different sort of machine when it comes to supplies. There is a main imaging drum unit which works for all four colors, and then there of course are the 4 colors. If the unit was asking for a drum unit then you should have instaled a Q3964A. It is entirely possible that your drum unit and black cartridge both expired at the same time, in which case, you need a black toner cartridge now.

Image drum light is on and printer will not print


You will need to replace the image drum assembly. If it's a 2550 then the part number should be Q3964A . Once you replace this the counter automatically resets and the printer will be back and working
