Question about HP LaserJet 2840 All-In-One Printer

I took out all of the ink cartriges and cleaned out all of the ink dust with "wet ones". I put all of the ink.cart. back in & had trouble lining up the yellow one. When I turn it on & it goes thru it's "warm up" you can hear gears grinding. I think something is out of synchroniztion. Any advice on how to fix?

Your print heads most likely need to be cleaned.

When you don't use your ink carts for a while, when you get new ink carts that have been stored in warehouses for a number of months, or when you have refilled a slightly too dry ink cart, the print head nozzles on the bottom of the ink carts get clogged with dried ink. The printer head cleaner menu will not disolve the dried ink. Water will. Try this. Soak the bottom of the clogged ink cart in 1/2 inch of hot water for 15-30 minutes. Blot dry with clean paper towel(you should see the ink color on the towel). Retry.

Did you put a new cartrige the first time, or just put ink in the old one? Ink cartriges dry out. If you let them sit for extended periods of time, you don't save ink, you let them dry out. You can try to bag and wrap them if you are not going to use for awhile and see if they keep longer...but usually you just have to get a new one. I've heard you can put tape over the end of it to keep it longer...don't know from experience though. New carts will usually do the trick though.

I use a small diameter silicone tube to carefully "prime" stubborn new carts by sucking a drop of ink out of the tiny print holes in the printhead part of the cart. Ink can dry at the head and since these carts work by electrical excitation, there needs to be liquid of each color at the holes. Slap a drop of water with your finger on the holes to start easy hesitant ones. Do not get the contacts wet.

You can try an Initial Fill of your ink carts. It is the next level after attempting to clean the heads. However, if this only temporarily fixes your problem, you could have a leak in the supply tubes, or the head could have failed.

Turn the epson off. Hold down the buttons [Paper Feed δ]+[Paper Feed ∇]+[Cut/Eject] and turn on the printer. This will take you into a hidden service menu. Hit the [Paper Feed ∇] button until you get to "Cleaning" then hit the [Select] button to enter that submenu. Hit the [Paper Feed ∇] again until you see "Init Fill", and then hit the [enter] button. The display will say "charging". Just wait until it is done, then turn the printer off and back on.
If you do not have enough ink in the in the carts you will be prompted to replace them. The same goes for the maintenance tank. Make sure you put the ink lever back in the lock position if you change the carts. (It will not give you an error about the ink lever being down, it just won't do anything.)

Take out the cartriges and hold one at a time between your forefinger and thumb tightly. Hit your wrists together and see if ink comes out the bottom of the cartrige. Be careful not to mess ink on your clothes or carpet etc. This sharp "shock" will bleed the cartrige and hopefully the cartrige will work. Clean all messed ink from any contacts and the jet area of the cartrige before inserting back into the plotter.

Replace ink cartridge


Took printer back- power up and take all carts out in sequence that would not register, then put them back in sequence- works fine now! At one time you could not do this with Epsons but it seems you can do so now. Printer happy- me happy- £50 worse off as bought another set of ink carts so I won't get caught out again with no ink. However given one black cart for my trouble so happy again.

It seems there's something wrong with the cartridge connector. Try cleaning with a soft cotton cloth soaked with alchohol or After Shave and check for the ribbon connecting the head for possible damage or cut.
