HP 3050 I just installed a new toner cartridge. Now it keeps telling me "no print cartridge". I tried the old one (that I just removed) and it is still giving me this error. Any Suggestions?

Try cleaning of the connectors inside of the printer. Also, try turning off the printer for a few minutes and restart it being sure all doors are fully closed.

HP 4015x and I get an insert black cartridge error. Not sure what I should be replacing on it or what to check on the printer.

Thank you for contacting FixYa with your printer inquiry.
This error is most common when your toner cartridge has reached it's end of life. Sometimes it will alternate with "This cartridge has reached a low threshold error" which indicates you can keep printing but need to order a new toner cartridge. See page 155 of your support manual for more on this error.
See page #117 of your user guide for toner installation instructions.
If you have installed a new toner cartridge and receive "Remove Shipping Lock Error" that means you have not removed the protective strip on page 118 step #5.
You can order new toner cartridge from HP PartSurfer or retail merchant where printer purchased. CC364-67902 Black print cartridge - Prints approximately 24,000 pages per cartridge CC364-67901 Black print cartridge - Prints approximately 10,000 pages per cartridge

When copying or printing, there is a whitish strip down the center where the rollers are. Print in this area is very faint. Thank you for any advice.

Remove the toner cartridge and while keeping relatively level, shake it from side to side. Re-install and try a test print. If the light band has gone away then problem solved. It does mean that your toner crtridge is probably starting to get low on toner. 90% of the time, print quality issues on HP lasers are toner cartridge related.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

HP Laserjet 3050 blank print

Have you tried a new toner cartridge? Usually blank pages are due to a missing bias voltage to, or in the cartridge.

Printer problem

The average yield for a Q2612A cartridge is 2,000 standard pages.

Based on these statistics

Current I don't see a higher yield cartridge available for your printer. The company I work for only carries 2,000 yield as well.

Did you swap toner cartridges into this new printer?

If this is a new printer make sure all the packing material is out of the cartridge slot such as any tape, seals, or string.

Your printer should have come with instructions telling you where the packing material is.

Replacing Print Cartridge

Turns out there was an easy solution. I filed a support case and had an answer in half a day:

"Often this issue is caused by a sensor. â Therefore the first thing we should do is try to trigger the sensor.
1 Turn off the HP LaserJet 3050
2 Remove the toner cartridge from the HP LaserJet 3050
3 Remove all of the paper in the paper tray
4 Check the entire paper path for any obstructions
5 Reseat the toner cartridge and paper
6 Power on the HP LaserJet 3050

If the issue is still not resolved we will need to try some resets on the HP LaserJet 3050.
1. The first reset we can try is a soft reset, it is done by pressing the MENU key then holding *# together. â This will bring you into a Developers Menu. â Scroll through the options until you find reinit FFS and then press the ENTER key.
2. If this reset doesn't clear the issue we can try a harder reset. â We can do this by pressing MENU, scrolling over to SERVICE, pressing ENTER, scrolling over to RESTORE DEFAULTS and pressing ENTER to restore the defaults and ENTER to confirm.

WARNING: Restoring the defaults will clear your fax settings, phonebook numbers and headers so you may want to print a phonebook report and Config Report first. â We can do this by accessing the Reports menu.

3. If these two resets do not help there is a third reset we can try.This reset will completely put the HP LaserJet 3050 back to factory defaults.WARNING: Before doing this reset we will need to disconnect the power cord, the phone cable, and the USB cable from the back of the HP LaserJet 3050.We can do this reset by unplugging the power cord from the back of the HP LaserJet 3050 then holding down the MENU/ENTER key and * symbol at the same time,then powering the HP LaserJet 3050 back on with the keys compressed.We will release the keys as soon as PERMANENT STORAGE INIT appears on the display screen."

I tried all the steps in sequence; it took #3 to fix it. Fortunately I didn't have a big fax address book or custom settings, so a factory defaults reset didn't cause any extra problems. It retained the time and date, and now it works fine.
