MY HP LaserJet 2840 has a brand new Toner cartridge. Now it won't print at all and we are getting a "OPC at end of life" prompt. What does this mean?


Imaging drum reach 20,000 (black only) or 5,000 (color), replace the image drum.

Supplies life
The life of the imaging drum depends on the number of black-only or color pages that print jobs
require. Imaging-drum life is also affected each time the device calibrates because calibrating causes the imaging drum to rotate. Imaging-drum life is measured in terms of number of rotations rather than number of pages printed.
The type and length of print jobs also affects drum life. A series of short print jobs uses more drum
life than an equivalent number of pages printed in a single large job. To extend drum life, print
multiple copies of a print job at one time rather than sending the same job to the device multiple times.
The life of a print cartridge depends on the amount of toner that print jobs require. When printing text at 5% coverage, black print cartridges last an average of 5,000 pages and cyan, magenta, and
yellow print cartridges last an average of 2,000 pages. High-capacity cyan, magenta, and yellow print cartridges last an average of 4,000 pages. (A typical business letter has 5% coverage.)

Hell

The "ghost print" you are getting is caused the fuser, even with 60% life left. We have seen this type of wear pattern happen if you print more on one side of the page than the other, or print darker images than standard use would be. The fuser heat roller is coated with Teflon to prevent the toner from sticking to it but when the coating gets worn down you get the ghosting like you have. You can replace just the fuser or you can get the whole maintenance kit and just keep the pickup rollers for later use. If you open the back of your printer so you can see the fuser you should be able to see the heat roller and most likely you will notice a worn area that is not the same color as the rest of the roller.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

HP LaserJet 1500... prints color yellow ONLY


It's possible that the toner in the cartridge is not evenly distributed. You can redistribute toner if you gently shake the cartridge from side to side, then reinstall it to see if this affects performance. Please also see this article.
You might wish to use the guided troubleshooting option available from HP support here. Or have a look at the troubleshooting section in the user manual here. Then clean the engine & calibrate the printer, as described pg. 88.
If that's no help, please see this forum post and the linked attachments within.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Generally this is a toner cartridge issue. Are you using genuine toner cartridges or generic remanufactured? I have attended alot of repairs on this model when clients use generic cartridges. Usually a genuine cartridge fixes the problem.

HP Laserjet 1300 yellow light flashing


Change the toner cartridge and see if the problem is rectified. Sounds like a part failure in the cartridge. This can happen at anytime, but more so when the cartridge is at the end of its useful life

Images of previous page remains on the new printed page


It is either a bad drum in the toner cartridge or toner on the fuser. Try changing out the toner. If the problem remains, you'll have to get a new fuser module.

My HP printer 2420 leaves "ghost" prints on the pages.


This can be caused by one of two things.

1. faulty wiper blade on your toner so that the previous image in not being wiped off the drum.
2. worn fuser sleve.

To work out which it is you will need to do a half stop test: print off a normal document then when it is about half way through the printer ( unfortunatly you may have to repeat this to get the timing right) open the front cover. remove the toner cartridge. if you can see the ghosting on the page the it is the toner. if its not there then its a new fuser. to save on money and if your confident enouh you may be able to just chane the fuser sleve depending on the state of the fuser on a whole.

hope this helps
