Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

Replaced the image drums and still say 0% remaining when I print out the Information Menu. After I loaded the new image drums I expected the warnings to go away like they always do, they didn't and they say 0% and I had just previously changed out new toners for the corresponding drums and as a result I am assuming of the senors not sensing the image drums are new it's saying the toner is empty too. I really, really need to print an important report first thing in the morning. HELP!!!! No time for Kinkos!

I need to know which printer/copier you have.

    Sorry. I checked for about twenty minutes after I asked what the model number was, and then went away from the computer for awhile.

    You should be able to change the toner and/or drums without having this problem. Okidata tech support is usually pretty slow, so I can appreciate you looking here.



    First, it may continue to print with the drum life at zero. If it does, then you should have time to get in touch with Okidata and have them resolve this as a drum/toner warranty issue.



    If it won't print, make sure you try and power down and back up (although I'm sure you already tried this).



    If it still won't print and you don't have another drum around, then you may wish to try the fix on the following thread: I can't say for sure if this will work, and read the entire thread since it does involve service level menus that Okidata may take issue with you using. That being said, if this is an emergency you may want to try it.



    http://www.fixyourownprinter.com/forums/...



    I'm sorry this isn't more definitive, but it looked like you have an emergency and I saw this some time ago, just hadn't had a chance to hear if it actually works.



    In any event, since this is urgent and I don't have a for sure solution, I have no problem with you clicking dissatisfied and putting this back into the pool for someone else who has maybe seen this exact issue. (I don't think there will be anyone, but you should probably give it a shot.)



    When I asked for the model and type, I assumed it was probably an HP printer, but that's what I get for assuming. I've got way more time on HP's than Oki's.

My HP Laserjet 2840 is showing "replace supplies" in the display. There are 5 box/cylendar's that appear in the display and the last one has a solid black box box in it. I was able to go thru...


Thank you for contacting FixYa with your printer inquiry.
The low ink could definitely be the problem thats prompting the error. To begin troubleshooting print the supply status page and confirm the state of the various supplies. Follow the steps below:
Supplies Status page The Supplies Status page lists the remaining life of the HP print cartridges and the HP imaging drums. It also lists the estimated pages remaining, number of pages printed, and other supplies information. You can print a Supplies Status page from the device or the HP Toolbox. To print from the device, complete the following steps. 1. On the control panel menu, press MENU. 2. Use the button to select Reports, and then press ENTER 3. Use the button to select Supplies Status, and then press ENTER. Note Supplies information is also available through the HP Toolbox.
This page illustrates conditions of consumables for Toner Cartridges, Image Drums, Image Transfer Kits, and Fuser Kits. It also provides ordering information and methods for disposing of or recycling used supplies.
Supplies information is also available through the HP Toolbox.
Areas of Supply Status Page: 1. Print-cartridge area. This area contains a section for each of the print cartridges and provides information about HP print cartridges. This information includes the part number for each print cartridge, whether each print cartridge is low, and the life remaining for each print cartridge expressed as a percentage, as a graphic, and as the estimated number of pages remaining. This information might not be provided for non- HP supplies. In some cases, if a non-HP supply is installed, an alert message appears instead. 2. Imaging-drum area. This area contains the same information for the imaging drum that the print-cartridge area provides for the print cartridges. 3. Warranty Note. This section contains information about how the device warranty is affected when you use non-HP supplies. It also requests that you call the HP fraud hotline if a supply that is being detected as a non-HP supply was sold to you as a genuine HP supply. (See HP fraud hotline.) 4. Ordering Information. This section contains basic information about how to order new HP supplies. See Checking status and ordering supplies. 5. Recycling Information. This section contains a link to the website that you can visit for information about recycling. See Replacing and recycling supplies.
The product Support Manual is available from the below link:
http://bizsupport2.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00341096/c00341096.pdf
If you have further questions just add comment to this link and we will gladly provide additional information and support.
Kind regards,

My laserjet printer started making load noises and no longer prints-the last thing printed only printed the top 3inches and then was all black, it then stopped working altogether


Use the following checklist to ensure that the print cartridge is still operable:
  • Ensure that the print cartridge is seated properly.
  • Inspect the print cartridge for remaining toner.
  • Check the expiration date stamped on the print cartridge box.
  • Check the print cartridge to see if it has been disassembled or refilled.
  • Inspect the print cartridge to see if toner is leaking through worn seals.
  • Check the surface of the photosensitive drum in the print cartridge to see if it has been damaged or scratched. Touching the drum contaminates the photosensitive surface and can cause spotting and image defects.
  • Blurred areas on printed pages indicate that the photosensitive drum in the print cartridge has been overexposed to light. Because overexposure to light causes permanent damage to the photosensitive drum, the cartridge should be replaced.

The HP LaserJet 1100 series printer cannot print to the edge of the paper, to get the image to fit into this printable area, slightly reduce the size of the image.

try this and let me know, also check the status of the toner.

The printer screen shows change parts and on the wlan computers connected to it says that the drum end soon and that panics me a lot as i paid a lot for this damn computer


Did you recently replace the drum and the warning is unexpected?

Why does the message "Drum End Soon" continue to appear on the LCD after I replaced the drum?
Description:
This message would continue to appear if the drum unit counter was not reset when you installed a new drum.

To reset the drum unit counter, follow the instructions below:
  1. Press Menu on the Control Panel.
  2. Press the Up or Down Arrow key to select Machine Info..
  3. Press OK.
  4. Press the Up or Down Arrow key to select Reset Menu.
  5. Press OK.
  6. Press the Up or Down Arrow key to select Drum.
  7. Press OK.
  8. Press 1 to reset the drum unit counter.
You can use this procedure to reset a drum in order to continue to use up the remaining 'life' of the drum; recognizing that you will need to replace the drum when you start having print quality issues.

Problem with Dell 1720 printer


Hello

You have to check couple things in this case.

Ensure that the printer cover is closed.
  1. Remove the toner cartridge.
  2. Firmly shake it side-to-side and front-to-back several times to redistribute the toner.
  3. Reinsert the toner cartridge, and continue printing.
Repeat this procedure multiple times until the print remains faded. When the print remains faded, replace the toner cartridge.

or
The imaging drum is approaching full and needs to be replaced. Order a new imaging drum.

Imaging drum LED stays on continuously


When the Imaging Drum LED stays solid on, it means your imaging drum is running low and will soon need to be replaced. You can unseat, then reseat it and see if that solves the problem.

If everything is printing fine, don't do anything until the LED starts flashing. HP will tell you to replace the drum immediately, but mine was on for a year, with moderate printing, before going to the flashing, "empty" state. This is the same advice as for toner cartridges, which are sometimes as much as 50% full when the light comes on.

However, I suggest sourcing a new drum so you can be prepared for when the existing one goes out. Also, despite HP's warnings of gloom and doom, aftermarket products work acceptably.

Okidata c3200 - "needs new drums" message


Check your page count, drum life on a C3200 is roughly 15000 pages. This information can be found on the information menu map.

Information Menu ecblank.gif ecblank.gif dot.gif ecblank.gif Menu Item Default Setting PRINT MENU MAP EXECUTE Prints the MenuMap (menu listing) with current settings shown. Information about your printer is also
shown at the top of each MenuMap page.


Life Expectancy ecblank.gif ecblank.gif dot.gif ecblank.gifToner Cartridge
Life expectancy approximately 1,500 pages, assuming about 5% coverage, which means that 5% of the addressable dots in an image are printed with this color of toner. See Toner Cartridge..

Image Drum
Life expectancy approximately 15,000 pages, assuming an average of 3 pages per print job. If the average print job is longer than this, the image drums could last longer, but if the average print job is shorter, then image drums will be used more quickly. See Image Drum.

Transfer Belt
Life expectancy about 50,000 letter-size pages. See Transfer Belt.

Fuser
Life expectancy about 45,000 letter-size pages. See Fuser.

Page count unreasonable


Re you using genuine HP NEW cartridges? If not, you must make sure that whoever has re manufactured the ones you are using has replaced the chip on the cartridge. This tells the machine how many copies are on the cartridge.
