My HP M2727nfs prints blank pages. Even demo page / reports are blank. NO errors on display. Paper gets warm, so fuser works. New cartridge doesn't help. Neither cold reset. What can this be?

This is a problem with either the formatter board or the dc controller, try doing an nv ram ( turn off the printer and hold down the right arrow and the cancel button, turn the printer back on and continue holding until you see permanent storage init). If this doesn't work call hp tech support 1800 334 5144 and ask for a case number. This printer has a service note which will cover the formatter for 2 years.

    If the pages are blank it is def the formatter board, both the 1522 and the 2727 have a known issue with the formatter board.

Reading no paper paper tray is full


Instructions
  1. Check the display for an error message. If the display reads "Clearing paper from printer," the engine has detected a jam and is attempting to eject the jammed pages automatically. These pages will often be blank.
  2. Check the display for "Performing PRINT/STOP TEST" or "Performing SERVICE TEST." Either of these messages indicates that the printer is going through a test procedure that may eject blank pages.
  3. Reduce the amount of paper in the input tray if the printer is feeding multiple blank sheets at a time. The printer will pull extra pages through if the input tray is overfilled.
  4. Replace the paper in the input tray with the correct size if needed. If the 4600 printer detects the paper as an incorrect size for the print job, it may eject the paper without printing anything on it.
  5. Replace the ink cartridges if certain colors are blank on the page. Replace the black cartridge if printing a black text document that is coming out blank. The printer may attempt to print even if the ink level is low or empty, but will unable to print anything on the page, causing it to come out blank.
  6. Remove the sealing tape from newly installed cartridges. The tape covers the print heads and should be removed before installing the cartridges. If the tape is left on, it will prevent ink from getting on the pages as they print.
  7. Press the "Check mark" button on the control panel to enter the printer menu. Run a diagnostic so the printer can attempt to determine the cause of the blank pages printing. Press the up or down arrow to select "Diagnostics." Press the "Check mark" button. Press the "Down" arrow to highlight "PQ Troubleshooting." Press the "Check mark" button. The printer runs a diagnostic and returns to a ready state when done.

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.

HP LASERJET 4PLUS PRINTER-PRINT OUT BLANK PAPER AND WITH ERROR MSG 41.3


Get a new printer.

Serious if it is happening repeatedly and it is not because of corrupt data like a bad file being sent to it, then tis biga buckas any way you go, replacing the laser or the Main Control Board. From your description it will be laser, laser units wear out because inside is a little motor working real hard and eventually they wear out or main board the brains behind the operation has lost the plot

here is the code description from manual
41.X Printer Error
A temporary printing error has occurred. The page containing the error will automatically be reprinted. If the error persists:
1. Reseat the connections to the laser scanner and then to the engine controller board.
2. Replace the laser scanner.
3. Replace the engine controller board.
