Printer prints blank pages


This is almost certainly an issue with the toner cartridge. I would recommend running off 30 or so prints and contacting whoever the cartridge was purchased from if the toner doesn't pull through.

Checking the toner cartridge
Image formation defects are many times the result of problems in the toner cartridge. If there is any doubt, always replace the toner cartridge before troubleshooting image defects.
Use the following checklist to make sure that the toner cartridge is still operable.
" Make sure that the toner cartridge is seated properly.
" Inspect the toner cartridge for toner level.
" Check the expiration date stamped on the toner cartridge box.
" Check the toner cartridge to see if it has been disassembled or refilled.
" Inspect the toner cartridge to see if toner is leaking through worn seals.
" Check the surface of the photosensitive drum in the cartridge to see if it has been damaged or scratched. Touching the drum contaminates the photosensitive surface and can cause spotting
and image defects.
" Blurred areas on printed pages indicate that the photosensitive drum in the cartridge has been overexposed to light. Because overexposure to light causes permanent damage to the photosensitive drum, the cartridge should be replaced.
Note A toner cartridge weighs approximately 863 grams (30.5 oz) when it is full, approximately 766 grams (27.0 oz) when it first fades, and approximately 742 grams (26.2 oz) when it is empty.

To redistribute toner in the cartridge

Before installing a new cartridge or when toner begins to run low, redistribute the toner by rotating the cartridge back and forth five or six times.

HP 4015x and I get an insert black cartridge error. Not sure what I should be replacing on it or what to check on the printer.


Thank you for contacting FixYa with your printer inquiry.
This error is most common when your toner cartridge has reached it's end of life. Sometimes it will alternate with "This cartridge has reached a low threshold error" which indicates you can keep printing but need to order a new toner cartridge. See page 155 of your support manual for more on this error.
See page #117 of your user guide for toner installation instructions. http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c01295101/c01295101.pdf
If you have installed a new toner cartridge and receive "Remove Shipping Lock Error" that means you have not removed the protective strip on page 118 step #5.
You can order new toner cartridge from HP PartSurfer or retail merchant where printer purchased.
http://partsurfer.hp.com/Search.aspx?SearchText=CB511A CC364-67902 Black print cartridge - Prints approximately 24,000 pages per cartridge CC364-67901 Black print cartridge - Prints approximately 10,000 pages per cartridge

The Toner light flashes, it will not print .


Have you replaced the toner? By your post, it doesn't sound like it. Toner only lasts so long, it does run out, and then it's time to replace the cartridge. You can probably buy one from where ever you bought the printer, otherwise, Amazon.com is always a good place to buy things.

Replacing the drum should fix this issue. The PC drum, aka, photoconductive drum, is light sensitive, if it has been exposed long enough to light, it can cause this problem.
