    I iknow how to replace the pickup roller. What I need is to know is how to remove and replace the whole pickup roller assembly.

    actually it is not related to my problem. I need to replace the tray 2 pickup roller assembly on a HP laserjet 2430 . You posted a reply explaining how to replace the tray 2 pickup roller. I already know how to replace the roller, what I don't know is how to replace the entire assembly. I cannot find it anywhere in the manual or elsewhere online.

    I thought "replace the pickup roller assembly" was pretty specific. Do you know how to do that?

The tray two pickup roller is a roller in the front of the tray. Remove tray 2 and place it on a level work surface. Locate and open the cover that is
next to the roller in tray 2.
Pinch the blue latch that is on the left side of the roller. Slide the roller off of the shaft.
Then you can slide the new roller back in.
CAUTION When you install this roller, make sure that it locks into place. Verify that the
roller is correctly oriented, and that the round, black spacer next to the roller is correctly
positioned against the locking pin on the shaft.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

My HP 2430 continues to jam on Tray 2 only. Tray 3 and Tray 1 (manual feed) are fine. I have replaced rollers and it continues to jam paper.


Common problem on this printer is for either the drive shaft for tray 2 to come lose or to break. Pull out the tray and try to rotate the roller. If it turns freely then the shaft is broken. The replacement procedure is too complex to describe here. If the roller does not turn freely then likely the pick solenoid has failed.

Hp laserjet 4250 feeds multiple pages through the manual feed tray


Hello,

It sounds like the paper pickup roller and separation pad for tray 1 is worn and will need to be replaced. These two parts pickup the paper and weed the pages into the printer. When they get worn down they can grab more than one page at a time. The parts are user replaceable, no need to pay a big repair bill for something like this. The parts come in a kit with rollers and pads for tray 1 and tray 2 along with the instructions and it is available here:
http://www.ccl-la.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=302
Here is a picture of the roller and separation pad from the service manual.

I have a HP LaserJet 1320tn, after I changed the cartridge I keep getting paper jams just about where the paper meets the cartridge


Hi if you says that the paper gets jam at the fuser meeting point than i m sure that registration assembly which register the paper with toner cartridge is not working properly this is internal hardware fault.
It may caused due to faulty pickup assembly too.
There is a small **** manual feed tray try to print using manual feed and check if the problem persists then registration assembly is faulty if the it print fine from manual feed than Tray 2 pickup assembly or pickup roller is faulty.

Printing problem with HP Laserjet P2015 printer


This can be an issue with one of the faulty sensor across the printer.
Please check if you are able to print from tray 1, e.g. a configuration page.
A config page can be printed by holding the Green Button and releasing it as soon as the Triangle light comes on. This would take approx 5 secs.
If the printer is able to print from tray 1, then it could be an issue with the tray 2 pickup sensor.
Check if the tray 2 pickup sensor ( a black plastic piece to the right of the tray 2 pickup roller) is moving freely (front and back), also check if tray 2 pickup roller is not able to rotate completely.

If the tray 2 sensor is not moving freely and of the pickup roller is rotating completely, then reseat the pickup roller.

Normal use with good media causes wear resulting in the need to periodically clean or replace the pickup roller. Additionally, the use of poor media might require more frequent replacement of the pickup roller. Replacing the pickup roller Complete the following to replace the pickup roller:

CAUTION: Failure to complete this procedure might damage the printer. Unplug the power cord from the printer, and allow the printer to cool.

Proper Manual cleaning


 

 

Hi Gidget,

I typically use "Chux" wipes and a shop-vac to start with. The wipes wipe up and REALLY HOLD the toner & paper particles, holds 'em tighter than a Hobo does a ham sandwich...

 

(I'll concede to the 'by-the-book' crowd that a specific (read EXPEN$IVE) type of vacuum cleaner is recommended by HP & most other service org's. I've used my shop-vac for 12+ years and have serviced thousands of HP LJ's, CLJ's, AiO's, MFM's, DJ's, OJ's, etc. I have never lost a single printer because I didn't use the 'right' type of vacuum...)

 

The Chux wipes are available from PartsNow, LLC; www.partsnow.com/.

They also carry maint kits for almost every HP printer made as well as Lexmark, Canon, Xerox, etc.

 

I use Cooper's Platen Cleaner (PartsNow) to clean the rollers using 2" x 2" gauze squares and nitrile gloves. Fedron works well too. HP's website mentions isopropyl alcohol and water as their recommended solvents. Use waht works best for you.

 

Having some 6-inch long cotton tipped applicators (wooden handled single ended Q-Tips...) helps tremendously.

 

In conjunction with the correct service manual, (in your case,  Combined Service Manual for HP LaserJet 4L / ML & 4P / MPHP Publication Number C2005-90988, August 1993), a thorough cleaning is very easy for almost anyone to perform.

 

PartsNow and several other websites have HP Svc Man's online for free, Google around.

 

A legacy utility from HP that I've not yet tried can print and cycle cleaning sheets to clean mainly the fuser, but also claims to clean rollers as well. HP printer specialists will recognize 'cleaning sheets' from HP's newer models, built in to the menu structure. The utility will allow you to do the same for older (LJ 4, 5, & 6) printers. Find it at:

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&taskId=125&prodSeriesId=25484&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=25484&objectID=bpl03846

 

Another Combined Svc Man is available as well that covers:

HP LaserJet 4 / 4M
(C2001A / C2021A)
HP LaserJet 4 Plus / 4M Plus
(C2037A / C2039A)
HP LaserJet 5 / 5M / 5N
(C3916A / C3917A / C3952A)

HP Publication Number C3916-90984 (March 1996).

 

As far as Scheduled cleaning, the cleverly formatted (LOL) table below lists HP's recommended service intervals. Over the years, I've found that adhering to the schedule has reduced unplanned downtime by almost 80%!!

 

DESCRIPTION / QTY / EST. LIFE (pages) / REMARKS  
1.  Toner Cartridge / 1 / 6800 (note 1) / When print becomes faint, shake cartridge to distribute remaining toner.  


2.  MP (Tray 1) Pickup Roller Assembly / 1 / 200,000 / Replace roller and separation pad together.  


3.  PC (Tray 2) Pickup Roller / 1 / 200,000 / Look for glazing and cracks.  


4.  Separation Pad / 1 / 200,000 / Look for glazing and grooves. Replace together with Pickup Rollers.  


5.  Transfer Charging Roller / 1 / 200,000 / May affect print quality and/or paper jams.  


6.  Fuser Assembly (115 V, 50/60 Hz) / 1 / 200,000 / May affect print quality and/or paper jams. Look for marks on rollers.

  
6a. Fuser Assembly (220 V, 50 Hz) / 1 / 200,000  


7.  LC (Tray 3) Pickup Roller / 1 / 200,000 / Look for glazing and grooves. Replace the Separation Pad.  


8.  Exhaust Fan / 1 / 25,000 hrs. (I've only had to replace one in 12 yrs...) 


Note 1: The estimated Toner Cartridge life is based on A4 or letter size prints with an average of 5% toner coverage, and with the density setting at 3.  

 

Best of luck,

Foxfur
