First make sure you are placing the right
color cartridge into the right slot.
Most Printers are touchy about the
installation of ink cartridges. If the
instructions say to press the cartridge
into the slot until you hear a loud click,
that's what they mean. If at first you
don't succeed, remove the cartridge and
reinsert it into the slot again and press
on it hard till it clicks.
Then your printer should work properly.
Hope this is of some help. Bud

HP LaserJet 3030 Paper is crushed from top right edge when printing/copying. How can/do I fix this? I have used a heaver weight paper and it does not get crsuhed, however the print is usually smudged right...


Try reseating your Ink Cartriges first then try printing to see if the error still appears, if it does try reinstalling your printer drivers... make sure you check your printer cables if they are conencted properly to your computer after reseating the cartriges.

Problem removing print cartridge.


Error 502 is a hardware problem code. Two solutions for you: 1)On the A940 there seems to be a coating on the metal rod that the cartridges travel on. See it back there? With the power disconnected, wipe this rod with a kleenex and the problem seems to go away. It presents a drag on the cartridges and causes the 502 error. You might have to GENTLY forcibly slide the cartridge a bit to each side to finish cleaning the rod. ONLY DO THIS WITH THE POWER OFF!! 2) Or you can also turn off your printer, then slide the cartriges all the way to the left, and GENTLY wipe the encoding strip running right behind the cartrige carrier.(it will look like a translucent piece of plastic strip in most printers). Wipe it down with a soft cloth gently, then slide the cartriges all the way to the right, and repeat this process. When you are done, simply close the cover, power back up, and see if it will print a test page for you. ZT3000 "Beta tester of "0"s and "1's"
