Toner cartridge stuck half way into HP printer

I have an HP 3055 which uses the 12a toner cartridge. I was just installing a new one, and forgot to remove the tape that holds the drum door shut. I got the cartridge half way in, and it won't go any further. Nor will it come out. I have applied only light force, and some jiggling, trying to get it out, so I believe that I have not broken anything YET.

I would just keep jiggling and trying to get it out, maybe with a little force, if anything breaks, just replace the cartridge. Remove the tape before putting it back in.. Also make sure in snaps in tightly, you will hear a click, that means it is correctly put in.
Good Luck! :)

Hp laserjet 3055 printer print blank pages how solve it`

1) Check the toner cartridge: Is it new? Is any protective tape or cover to be removed actually removed before installation? Is there any other obstruction preventing the toner from coming out?

2) Check with the printer itself: the drum to pick up the toner may not be charged each time.

I have an Hp CM6030f MFP that said to change the yellow toner. When I changed the yellow toner which was more than half full it is now stuck in calibration mode.

  1. Power cycle the printer and Verify the "Replace Cartridge?? message is still present.
  2. Remove ALL the cartridges (Toner and Drum cartridges).
  3. Power cycle the printer
  4. Install one by one of the cartridges when the printer requests them
  5. Verify that the new cartridge is recognized by printing the Supplies Status Page.

My hp laserjet printer 3055 printing out put is blank sheet is coming

This can be caused by a number of reasons however it is mostly caused by the toner cartridge missing a small spring on one end. Try replacing toner cartridge first.

Why does my new HP Laserjet 1020 12A cartridge print too light?

It's rare that an original HP would do that? It's more likely that it's a compatible / remanufactured cartridge. is it? Compatibles can be as good as or better than OEM (mine are for example), but there are a lot of "hacks" out there.
Either way, I would return it for a new one, because that is your problem.
