Chances are some parts of the printer are at the end of its life and needs replacement. Suggesting to get a new printer instead than having it repaired.

Hope this helps

No print cartridge

Most HP printers of this size use one flag to signal two different problems. Both paper jam and toner cartridge inserted. Look on the left side of the cavity where the cartridge is inserted and you should see a flag there that gets pressed by the cartridge. The problem usually requires removing the back panel of the printer and reseating the flag.

    NOTE:If Removal and Installation instructions are needed for reference during any repairs performed, refer to the HP Designjet 500 and 800 Series Service Manual available on the Computer Care Web site for review or download. Troubleshooting steps If any of the troubleshooting steps listed below solve the problem, attempt to verify printer functionality (instructions listed below). If functionality is verified, no additional parts should be replaced.
      NOTE: The printer's current firmware revision must be A.02.04 or higher for a new Service Station to work properly. If firmware is lower than A.02.04, download the newest available firmware before continuing with the remainder of this document.
      1. Turn the printer off, then on to verify error. If no error attempt to verify functionality.
      2. If the error appears or problems persist, continue with the remaining steps.
      3. Follow the steps directly below to unlock the Carriage from the Service Station:
        1. Highlight the Set-Up menu and press the ENTER button.
        2. Press the UP arrow and ENTER buttons simultaneously and press the ENTER button.
        3. Highlight Service Utilities and press the ENTER button.
        4. Highlight Unlock Carriage and press the ENTER button.
        5. Unplug the power cord from the printer.
      4. Manually move the Carriage assembly out from the Service Station area and check for obstructions (remove as needed).
        NOTE: If you are unable to release the Carriage by the previous process, remove the right end-cover and locate the main Service station gear (as pictured below in Figure 1) and rotate it counter clockwise approximately four revolutions. The Carriage assembly should now be free from the Service station. Figure 1: Service Station Gear
        1. If an obstruction is found and removed, plug the power cord in, turn the printer On and attempt to verify functionality.

        2. If the flag is not at a 45-degree angle, press in gently on the bottom of the gray and rotate the bottom of the flag to the right (toward the back of the printer) until the top of the flag clips into the tab on the Service Station. The flag should stay at about a 45-degree angle.

        4. If no error appears, attempt to verify functionality.
        5. If the error reappears continue with the remaining steps.

          1. Following replacement, turn the printer on and verify functionality as instructed below.

I have this error showing: 09,037,45:101905 ... what does it mean?

Your machine has a problem counting the yellow ink sticks, this can be caused by non Xerox ink or faulty/broken Xerox inks.
Your machine has now gone into a flagged fault state and needs to have the flag reset.
In order to reset the flag, you need to go into 'Troubleshooting' then into 'Service Tools'. Once in service tools press and hold the up button, then press the down button. This will take you into a hidden service menu. Scroll down this menu and look for 'Clear ISC fault' or 'Reset Ink Loader' (there will only be one or the other not both commands) highlight the command by scrolling down to it. Press the OK button, nothing will happen. (Press a couple of times if you want to be sure). Now scroll down to exit and select to return to the previous menu. Switch the printer off by the off switch on the side of the printer, NOT at the wall/plug socket.
Your printer will now reboot. Please be aware, if there is a faulty switch on the ink loader, this method will work until 2.5 inks have gone through the machine, it will then give you the fault again. If it was just a dodgy ink stick, this will be a permanent solution.
Hope it helps you.

I have a printer dcp 7030 brother company i am showing problem toner life end after reffling

I just had this problem and fixed it. The original toner cartridge that comes with the printer cannot be reset. You have to buy at least one new cartridge. The reason is that the original cartridge that comes with the printer doesn't have a reset flag. You can, however, refill/reset a cartridge that you buy separately. Pull out the drum and lift the cartridge out of the drum. Hold the handle and look on the left end. You should see a crescent shaped hole with a white flag/lever. To reset this, move the white flag all the way to the left (I had to use something to push it). Put it back into the printer and voila - it fixes itself. Then, after the printer has been reset, you can use the original cartridge again, if you want. The flag part won't matter once the printer has been reset. I hope this is clear. I know it worked for me, and I had the exact same problem.

Standard top bin full remove all paper from bin

Is this occurring even with no paper in the face down top bin? Likely a stuck paper sensor flag, or dirty optical sensor. You need to remove the top to access it, investigate and replace the flag or sensor, or clean the optical sensor. Service manual free at - look down the left navigation bar for an icon and link to service manuals. You can download the PDF free - dont make people selling copyrighted material on ebay rich.

Top cover isnt that hard to remove and requires patience and a #2 phillips screwdriver. Be careful of the cable for the display and buttons when you lift the cover off.

    Is it possible to reset pro 416 out of this problem.

    Limited information provided.<br /> Pressing 8 start may give you a error code. Or a 8 plus stop button.<br /> If the machine has a C4 code, this may require machine software to be installed on the machine in order to correct problems. The scanner will not operate correctly even with a new scanner. The software needs to be installed by the service representative in order to align the correct software to main board, to correct laser heas assay.<br /> Good luck.<!-- from fixya rte -->

    Flashing:remove output and cannot print

    Sounds like the Outputflag is sticking or not returning back to the proper position as quickly as i should. The output flag is gravity return in other words there is no spring required.
    Perhaps there is paper or dust collecting in that area and causing the flag to stick... regardless follow these instructions to test this :

    The output bin flag on the 1720dn is on the right side. (as you face the printer)

    Turn the printer off, hold up the flag while pwring on, wait until al the lights stop cycling. the only light remaining ON (flashing) should be "Remove Output".
    Release the Output Bin flag; the light should stop flashing (go out) and the "Ready" light

    If this is the case try cleaning that area with compressed air to see if the flag will lower on its own.

    Best of Luck

    Toner sensor error 413K displayed even though new toner has been placed..we cannot print

    In the side of the blue handle on the toner there should be a window that has a white flag inside it. the surface of the flag may be dirty and require cleaning. alternatively, there is a sensor opposite this in the side of the printer that "looks" for the white flag moving during the startup sequence that may also require cleaning. K in the code would indicate K or black toner is the one to be checking.

    Error OUTPUT BIN FULL. Please help tried almost evertghing.

    A flag in the output bin is activated. This flag moves up while the paper is making its way out of the printer and drops as soon as the paper drops into the output bin. When the tray is full the flag will stay activated or in the "up" position instead of down. Telling you to empty the bin.
    You can see this flag in the center on the delivery assembly(where paper exits). The flag should be free to move up and down. Gently see if the flag will come loose. This flag is delicate so if you push or pull to hard you will break it.
    The only other way to lease this flag would be to remove the top cover and reposition it. Of course this would be a little more involved and would require a new set of instructions.
