Re: Memory faulty


Perform a semi-full reset on the all-in-one by following the steps below >

  1. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.
  2. Unplug the power cord from the all-in-one.
  3. Wait 30 seconds and plug the power cord back into the wall outlet.
  4. Press the Cancel and Right Arrow buttons.
  5. While still holding the buttons, plug the power cord back into the all-in-one. Continue to hold the buttons for two seconds, and then release them
  6. Allow the all-in-one to re-initialize. This may take a minute or two.
  7. If prompts appear in the all-in-one display to set the front panel language and country settings, perform the steps to set this information.
The problem should be corrected. If the problem still exists, replace your product.

You may have the "separator page" option turned on in your print driver. This option will insert a blank page after each print job to separate one print job from another. Simply uncheck the box by the separator page option and you should be back to normal !

HP 4015 NVRAM & hardrive initialization

A hard disk initialization will erase and reformat the printer's hard disk. Perform hard disk initialization only if an error code displays on the control panel indicating a disk error. Always try initializing the hard disk before replacing it.

1. Turn the printer on. 
2. As the printer performs its power-on sequence, press and hold the Menu button until all three lights on the control panel are lit. 
3. Press the back arrow . The message INITIALIZE DISK displays on the control panel. 
4. Press OK. The printer initializes the hard disk and continues the power-on sequence.

CAUTION: Initializing NVRAM resets the serial number, the model number, the event log, the page counts, and the EIO card. Use the SERVICE menu to restore the serial number and page counts. You also need to reconfigure any computers that print to this printer to recognize the printer. Initialize NVRAM only when absolutely necessary. In most situations, use a cold reset to return printer to factory defaults but still retain the needed values in the SERVICE menu. 

 NVRAM initialization
Before initializing NVRAM, print a configuration page and a supplies status page to gather the service menu values

1. Turn the printer on and watch the control panel display. 
2. When the display shows the memory count, press and hold the down arrow until all three lights on the control panel are lit
3. Press the up arrow . 
4. Press Menu . The message SKIP DISK LOAD displays on the control panel. 
5. Press the up arrow until NVRAM INIT is highlighted, and then press OK. The printer initializes NVRAM and then continues its power-on sequence.

daca aceasta procedura nu reuseste, atunci va trebui sa inlocuiesti formatter-ul. daca nu exista hard disk

Good luck

I set it to print and it spits out blank pages.

make sure your driver is correct for the printer and your os. go to the printer properties and print a test page . this will tell you if it is the driver verses your application. also go to the printer itself and print a config page from memory this will remove the pc from the equation and you will know if the print er is able to print verse it being a computer problem

Horizontal lines (red) on first 1 - 2 pages of initial print-out

Do you refill ink tank? Print blank pages. Is there horizontal lines appear? It might be caused bay ink leakage. Check respiratory hole at ink tank and rubber seal at bottom of ink tank. Print blank pages until no horizontal lines and try to use new ink tank.

HP LaserJet 3550 spits out blank paper when job sent from computer but prints fine when printing directly from printer

Try connecting the printer via the USB port on either one of the computers. Then test if the machine prints fine then likely possibility is that the Network interface card is faulty remove the network card and install in a different slot and test. If the same thing happens then reinstall the drivers and test.

Hope this helps
Thanks J
