Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

2 Answers

I just bought a used HP LaserJet p2015dn with no toner cartridge. When I plug it in, there is a loud "grinding" sound... then a sound of a fan and then another grinding sound. There is a yellow light that is flashing, (second light from the top) maybe the ink light? Is this printer junk or can it be fixed. Thanks

    Are you sure it isn't just the toner? The sound goes away

    Thank you! I will do this. And since I got it for a very reasonable price, I can always sell it for parts.

    what about the grinding noise? do you also think it is a "junk" computer? Or, should I spend money on toner to hopefully fix the problem?

    before you purchase a toner. try first to test with the store where you will purchase the toner if they have spare one and put it in your printer. probably the grinding noise is because the printer is looking for a toner. if grinding noise is still there then the problem would be the printer itself.

Base from the description of your problem this is a sign of a junk printer that needs part replacement and replacing those parts will cost you a new printer already and the life span of a printer like this that you will be replacing the parts is only short, so its really best to go get a new one.

    Its a small chance that its only a toner problem, since you purchased it without the toner I will suggest to you to put a toner on this one if you can borrow from someone or just use a old toner for testing purpose only, so you don't need to spend money for the mean time.

The drum, the developer roller, the primary charging roller are all found in the toner cartridge.

My HP P2015 started whining when printing. Otherwise its quiet. Any suggestions?


Usually this is caused by a defective toner cartridge. Take the toner cartridge out and close the cover. Listen to see if it makes the noise when the toner cartridge is out of the printer and the printer warms up. If it does,nt make the noise then that confirms it is the toner cartridge at fault.

Laser Jet P2015dn only prints in grey not black. Changed the toner cartridge - didn't help. Went into properties menu, looked to see if "econo" mode is on, and that doesn't exist. Help!


Sounds like you might have a transfer roller that needs to be replaced. The transfer roller is under where the cartridge seats and transfers the toner to the paper...If toner is not sticking to the transfer roller it will show what you are seeing....Transfer rollers come in Maintenance kits. If the transfer roller is not the issue....its most definitely the fuser not fusing the toner completely, due to improper heating, to the page giving a lightness.

A beaker shaped icon with dots in a triangular shape is highlighted on my hp laserjet printer. It is not printing. Why is this so.


We have several of these printers, and this is the Toner Status light. You will need to replace the toner cartridge. Here is a link to the user manual for future reference.

HP laserjet P2015 is printing blank


Are you getting toner on the paper? To find out, print a test page. When you judge that the paper is under the toner cartridge, turn the printer off and look at the toner cartridge. Is your document displayed on the toner drum in toner? Is there toner on the paper?

No No Replace the toner cartridge. If that doesn't work you have more serious problems.

Yes No Replace the transfer roller.

Yes Yes If toner is smeared on the paper, replace the fuser.

Ink rubs off or prints double/messy


Sounds like your fuser is getting ready to stop working. Your fuser creates the heat so the toner from the cartridge is baked onto the paper as it passes through, your toner is rubbing off, so you could try cleaning, but I'm sure it'll be a new fuser, or possibly a fuser roller. Your owners manual has all the information and step by step trouble shooting guide to let you know.
