Question about HP LaserJet 4200 Printer

Pull tab from toner cartridge

HP LJ 4200 keeps displaying a message telling me to pull the tab out of the toner cartridge- only I already have. It's done this with the last two cartridges I put in, one of which I subsequently successfully put in another printer. It will use the toner that's in it now, unfortunately there's fewer than 800 pages left on it.

Anybody?

    Some of each. The one that's in there is a remanufactured one from one vendor, and the attempts to replace it hav3 been one refurb from the same vendor, one from another vendor and also one HP.

    Is there a sensor for that that could be broken?

    Are these toner cartridges OEM (from HP) or are they aftermarket?

Try turning the printer off wait a few minutes and turn back on. also clean the contacts on the side of the printer (inside of the machine.) If not it could be a main board issue.

Black toner flakes on paper


Hi,
This could be a couple of things, easiest thing to try first is to put a different toner cartridge in, something that has already been opened because it would save you from opening a new one. Another thing you can try is sending a cleaning page through the printer to clean off excess toner from the fuser unit. What happens is over time toner builds up on the lower pressure roller of the fuser unit and after being heated and cooled so much the toner starts to flake off on your print outs. Follow these steps to try to clean the lower pressure roller:

To run the cleaning page manually
1.If a duplexer is installed, open the rear output bin.

2.Press check mark(SELECT button) or the MENU button to open the menus.

3.Use (UP ARROW button) or (DOWN ARROW button) to scroll to CONFIGURE DEVICE, and then press

4.Use or to scroll to PRINT QUALITY, and then press the check button

5.Use (UP ARROW button) or (DOWN ARROW button) to scroll to CREATE CLEANING PAGE for the(LJ 4200/4300) or PROCESS CLEANING PAGE if you printer is a(LJ 4250/4350) then press the check mark

6.Follow the instructions on the cleaning page to complete the cleaning process (LJ 4200/4300
only).

7.If a duplexer is installed, close the rear output bin.

This should help clear some of the flaking toner, if not you might have to replace the fuser unit.

Toner/drum problems


This seems to happen some of the time. Brother has an FAQ for this:

1. Verify the toner cartridge is installed correctly by following the
steps listed below:

a. Open the front cover.

b. Lift the drum unit slightly and pull it out. Place the drum unit on
adrop cloth or large piece of disposable paper to avoid spilling and
scattering the toner.

c. Remove the toner cartridge from the drum by holding down the lock
lever (blue tab) on the left side of the drum unit and lift the toner
out.
*Handle the toner cartridge carefully. If toner scatters on your hands
or clothes, immediately wash it off with cold water.

d. Gently rock the toner cartridge from side to side five or six times
to distribute the toner evenly inside the cartridge.

e. Place the toner cartridge into the drum (be sure it clicks into
place).

f. Clean the primary corona wire inside the drum unit by gently sliding
the blue tab on the top of the cartridge from right to left several
times. Return the blue tab to the home position before reinstalling the
drum unit assembly.

g. Reseat the drum unit into the machine.

h. Close the front cover.

2. If the message "Toner Life End" continues to appear on the display,
contact Brother Customer Service at 1-877-Brother (276-8437) Monday
through Friday, 9:00am - 7:00pm EST, excluding holidays.

I am using the workcentre 4150 and the printer keeps giving me an error saying. "toner supply failed, remove seal tape from toner cartridge and reinstall" I can't find any tape on toner...


The seal tape might be inside the cartridge, attached to a pull-tab.

I am only specifically familiar with the HP toner cartridges, which have a colored plastic pull-tab attached to the tape which seals the toner drum during transit. You have to pull on the tab which in turns yanks the sealing tape out after it.

Each HP cartridge has a small instruction sheet included which shows the location of the pull-tab. Perhaps your Xerox cartridge came with a similar diagram sheet?

Hp Lj 2430TN Printer


We ran into this problem a lot when this series first came out. There is a simple sensor on the left hand side of the toner cartridge area inside the printer that physically detects that a toner is installed (or not). With the left cover off, there is a plastic bracket that holds a lever; unless it is not, then it tells you that you have no toner installed. Lame.
