Question about HP LaserJet 5p Printer

2 Answers

No Manual or User's guide for HP LaserJet 5P

I love this printer and would like to properly care for it. Can you tell me where I can get a (hopefully free) user's guide/manual? I would particularly like to know what the 5 lights mean on the side...

Thank you.

    Thank you so much for your help. Today is the first time I have ever used your site and I have had excellent results! I was able to print the info I needed (the 2nd site was most clear and helpful). Thank you for taking the time and interest in helping someone who is not technologically literate. All the best to you!

I also have a HP Laserjet 5P printer and no manual. I have found 2 web sites that have helped me out. Perhaps they will be of some assistance to you as well.

I need a free guide for model c3150a serial usdb021482 fcc id b94c3150a


You can get support and some documentation (notices, white papers and reference) for your printer from HP support:
HP LaserJet 5p-mp Printer series - HP Business Support Center

There is no User Guide available for download though.

You can also get a Service Manual (which is not a User Guide, but describes some functions of the printer) from this blog, that has a link to a rapidshare download page (make a note of the password necessary to open the downloaded rar file). Or you can download the the Service Manual from here (this is only a temporary link): http://dl.getdropbox.com/u/1322442/HP%20Laserjet%205P-5MP-6P-6MP%20SM.pdf

HP Laserjet 5P


It's a laser printer so it doesn't have an ink cartridge like you might think...Lift the top tray and pull the toner cartridge upward and out. It's a large black unit with a glossy black drum inside it. It should be slightly narrower then the printer itself.

Here is the manual...

Paper jams in feed


That helps, yes. The reason I asked about the black mark, is if the drum wasn't turning, and the paper was bumping into it, you would get the mark along the lead edge.

You are right about one thing, these printers are workhorses. I have a 6P that just won't die.

There's a similar problem on a site I use, maybe you will find it useful:
