My printer Hp Color laserjet 2840 is given an Incorrect yellow initially, after i bought the catridge it is telling me of 52.4 error how to go about it.


Take the cartridge out and reseat it. If you bought a compatible toner I would order an OEM HP brand toner. These machines don't work well with compatibles.

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.

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).
