HP 2840 printer cartridge

We replaced the black cartridge with a correct new one. But the screen keeps saying Order black cartridge, how do I make that little message go away? ! Thanks.
Also, how do we connect a new laptop to our network so that the printer can be used? Is there a key # or something like that we need to put in for this to work? We have vista.
Thanks again.

How can I override the calibrating mode on A HP LaserJet 2840 All-In-One printer. My black toner is out and it would not print any documents, keep saying replace toner can I override this until I purchase...


You Cannot override, as the black cartridge is required for all print functions. Both B/w and Color use the black, obviously in smaller amounts in color, but it still requires it none the less. Sorry, I know you were hoping to trick the printer somehow, but with HP printers it's not an option, especially on the Laser Printer models like yours.

I have hp laserjet 2840 i replaced imaging drum and black cartrige now my printer says incorrect yellow and i cant get it go rotate or print?


If you used a compatible cartridge (as I assume) the problem is with the cartridge "CHIP", very common on compatible cartridges, return the cartridge or replace the chip. The chip is on the top of the cartridge and can be remove.

My printer won't print---I just had the black ink cartridege refilled but it keeps saying replace supplies


Return the cartridge and use only genuine supplies with HP. HP cartridges have chips on them that dictate if they are OEM or not. Typically, if you use a refiller , these chips won't get reset.

HP 2840, black ink drum q3964a


Hello, these printers tend to be finicky.

In other words, just replace the black toner. When the printer says its low, or empty, regardless of wether or not it is, just replace it.

Replacing the drum, when it says black toner needs to be replaced will do nothing to rectify the issue.

Buy only HP Toner and Drum cartridges for this printer. Do not try to refill toner cartridges, and do not reset drum. You will only end up destroying your printer in the process.

Error show on panel replace black cartridge


The replacement cartridge is a cheap imitation, that does not have the proper equipment to keep this error from reporting.

Re-installing yellow cartridge in HP 2840


There is a gray button right of the LCD display that has a black arrow circling clockwise and four color dots (magenta/black/cyan/yellow). Push it until you see the "Rotating to Yellow" in the LCD display, then open up the top of the printer by pushing the big gray latch next to the picture card reader at the right front of the printer. You now have access to the cartridge. pull it out and examine it. If it is a new cartridge, check to see if you pulled the plastic dam strip out (which keeps the toner in place in shipment etc).

Black replacement cartridge


This is an easy one, you do the black the same as each color cartridge. All four cartridges sit on a carousel that rotates.

Just keep pressing the button that's directly underneath the ready light until it says "rotating to black". After the machine stops rotating, open up the cover and put the black cartridge in.

Replace Cathridge


The front panel tells you witch toner cartridge should you replace. If a supply memory error ocures then the cartridge should be replaced or exchanged with a new one. The imaging drum unit is also consumable. for "Joe 50" - there are 4 toner cartridges in the printer.
