You can set the sensor to either reflective or transmissive.

For the printer to maintain a constant print position it uses the transmissive sensor to detect the gap
between labels by measuring the amount of light passing through the media. When the media is preprinted,
the darker (or more dense) inks can interfere with this process causing paper jam errors. To get
around this problem a minimum threshold can be set for the sensor in the following way.
(1) The printer is in stand-by.
(2) Load a media roll in the usual way.
(3) Press the [PAUSE] key.
(4) The printer enters the pause mode.
(5) Press and hold the [PAUSE] key for at least 3
seconds in the pause state.
(6) The sensor type is displayed.
(7) Press the [FEED] key.
(8) The reflective sensor (black mark sensor) is selected.
(9) Press the [FEED] key again.
(10) The transmissive sensor (feed gap sensor) is selected.
(11) Press and hold the [PAUSE] key.
(12) The media is advanced until the [PAUSE] key is
released.
(13) Release the [PAUSE] key when more than 1.5 labels
(tags) are advanced.
(Threshold setting is completed by this operation.)
(14) Press the [RESTART] key.
(15) The printer is in stand-by.

Print unable 32


This is not just a density sensor, this is a plastic cover over it that is getting stuck. There is a piece of soft rubber attached to the solenoid that is getting very sticky over time. Removing this rubber and stretching solenoid return spring corrects the issue. Search web for the service manual and follow chapter 8 to disassemble the printer correctly - takes less than 10 minutes to do it

Try putting more than one sheet of labels in the paper tray. Even if you're printing one label, it helps the printer grab the paper without that error somehow. If you're already using more than one sheet, I don't know. Good luck either way!!! :)

10.00.00 supply memory error


The 10.00.00 SUPPLIES MEMORY ERROR is based on the e-label. To clear the error, do the following:
NOTE: If the error occurs, it should appear at beginning of life, causing the error message after first installing the cartridge.
Turn the printer off and on to clear the message.
Put in the old catridge and see what happens.
If OK put in the new one again.
Verify that the print cartridge is a genuine HP cartridge.
Check that the E-label reader is functioning correctly.
Check that there is contact between the E-label chip on the print cartridge and the E-label reader on the printer.
To verify this contact, insert a new print cartridge.
Remove it again.
Check for scratches on the e-label chip and on the cartridge.
If contact is being made, replace the print cartridge (part number: Q2610A).
If contact is not being made, check the toner guides to see if they are in the proper position, or that the cartridge is not damaged.
If the printer has a 500-sheet Tray 3 installed, turn the printer off again and replace the print cartridge with a new HP print cartridge.
Turn the printer on again.
If the error does not clear, turn the printer off and remove tray 3.
Turn the printer on and verify if the error clears.
HP has recently discovered that a 10.00.00 Supplies Memory Error can occur when Tray 3 is faulty.
