.XX PRINTER ERROR A firmware error occurred 1. Press CANCEL JOB to clear the print job from the printer memory. 2. Turn the printer off, and then turn the printer on. 3. Try printing a job from a different software application. If the job prints, go back to the first application and try printing a different file. (If the message only appears with a certain software application or print job, contact the software vendor for assistance.) 4. If the message persists with different software applications and print jobs, disconnect all cables to the printer that connect it to the network or printer. 5. Turn the printer off. 6. Remove all memory DIMMs or third-party DIMMs from the printer. (Do not remove the firmware DIMM in the lowest DIMM slot.) 7. Remove all EIO devices from the printer. 8. Turn the printer on. 9. If the error no longer exists, install each DIMM and EIO device one at a time, making sure to turn the printer off and back on as you install each device. 10. Replace a DIMM or EIO device if you determine that it causes the error. 11. Remember to reconnect all cables that connect the printer to the network or computer. 12. If the error persists, replace the firmware DIMM. 13. Replace the formatter. This error is usually caused by a bad formatter board.

I ran out of black ink, can i still print with my other colors?

If one of the cartridges are empty these printers will typically stop and demand a new cartridge. If you are lucky enough to be able to still print then go for it.

Hp 3600n laster printer has started printing pink blothes on pictures

You probably have a defective magenta cartridge. To test that you need Print Test Quality pages.

1. Press Menu to open the MENUS.

2. Press to highlight DIAGNOSTICS, and then press .

3. Press to highlight PQ TROUBLESHOOTING, and then press .

The message PRINTING... PQ TROUBLESHOOTING appears on the control-panel display until the

printer finishes printing the PQ troubleshooting pages. The printer returns to the Ready state after
printing the PQ troubleshooting pages.

the pages it produces are individual colors, black, magenta, yellow and cyan and a white page and a config sheet.If the defect is on all pages then it might be a bad transfer belt. If it is only on one of the color pages, that will tell you which cartridge is bad.

Changed black cartridge now small black dots on all pages, even on test pages. bad cartridge?

Run the "Disable Cartridge Check" diagnostic
It will allow you to put the black cartridge in a different slot i.e. yellow. If the black cartridge in the yellow slot still puts black dots on the is bad.
Can you put the original old black back in the printer. That will tell you right away if the replacement is bad.

Printer is wanting to print in blue not black!?!

It would seem to me, that what you are describing is a cartridge phase problem, which will happen if the drive assembly is not correctly reinstalled after replacing the broken locks...
The technician who replaced the cartridge locks will have to remove the drive assembly and re-install it correctly.
