This means that the printer is due for it's scheduled maintenance. Things like paper feed rollers, separation roller, transfer roller and fusing unit are due. Now if I were you I would just ignore it as long as you are not having a lot of jamming problems or double imaging/print rubbing off issues. I have seen these HP's run way past the maintenance schedule. You will do absolutely no harm if you continue to run it. The parts that are due to be replaced will continue to wear and eventually you may have to do at least some or all of the maintenance but for now I would not worry about it at all unless like I said you are having problems. As a side note I work on HP laser printers for school districts that do not want to spend money on printers so I have seen lots of these printers with the "perform maintenance" indicators on for a year or more with no problems.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Clearing the Maintenance Count and Service Message: HP LaserJets servicepin.jpg
If the display panel on your HP LaserJet reads "Perform Printer Maintenance", "Perform User Maintenance", "Maintenance Kit Low", "Maintenance Kit Very Low", or anything along those lines it means your printer needs a preventative maintenance kit, which includes a fuser and various rollers. Once you have installed the maintenance kit the message will only go away if you clear the maintenance count.

Getting an display in the printer.


If you have the manual there is probably a section about this. It does sound like some parts may be wearing out and the printer is asking for new ones. Check out this link: http://www.printertechs.com/tech/maintcount.php A snip from the info there: If the display panel on your HP laserjet reads "perform printer maintenance", "perform user maintenance", or anything along those lines it means your printer needs a preventative maintenance kit, which includes a fuser and various rollers. Once you have installed the maintenance kit the message will only go away if you clear the maintenance count. For example the laserjet 4000 has a 200,000 page maintenance interval. Once you reach 200,000 pages the error message appears and you need to reset the maintenance count to zero to make the message go away.
