The device could not print the current page because of its complexity.
Press ENTER to clear the message.
Allow the device to finish the job, or press CANCEL to cancel the job.

We would like to inform you that the error you are getting is not because of the printer driver installed on your computer but due to the USB speed setting on the computer.
. Please perform the following steps on the printers control panel.
a) Press the Menu button.
b) Press 2 on your keypad and then you will see Secondary Service/Service Reports.
c) Press the right arrow button until High Speed USB appears.
d) Press the Enter button.
e) Press the right arrow button until OFF appears.
f) Press the Enter button.
Print something from the computer to test for the issue.
The first print after performing the steps will take a little time to print but the remaining page will print in the normal speed.
Selection to turn off high speed USB clears out the memory and next print jobs works better, because the memory is no longer fragmented.
3. If the error persists, please perform the below steps:
NOTE: If possible, print a configuration page and menu map prior to performing a cold reset.
This will document the current settings for later reference as performing factory default settings will clear all the information stored in the printer.
Perform the following steps to restore the factory defaults using the device control panel.
a) Press the Menu button on the device control panel.
b) Use the < (Left Arrow) or > (Right Arrow) button to select Service, and then press the Enter button.
c) Use the < (Left Arrow) or > (Right Arrow) button to select Restore Defaults, and then press the Enter button. The device setting will revert back to the factory default settings and the device will restart.

ijust solved this issue
my printer is HP 1020,, and i was printing a huge number of sheets, which USED TO GET STUCK IN AGAGIN AN AGIAN... coz, i was using a low quality damned paper..
now,, it began to gave error ,tht either the front cover door not closed , or its toner cartridge missing.
Well,, simple solution for me was (which is basic i think)
>> Remove the metallic plate on the back of the printer
>>there you 'll find , on the right side, near the socket for poer cable, a "lever" like thing, thats the lever for the "barrier" between the SENSOR... move it and u'll get an idea..
>> if its jammed ,, then free it..
(mine was stuck into dont know wht, and i freed it, and all is fine)
>> if spring adjusment is wrong, correst it(you may get idea by moving it again n again, whether it comes bbacl to its orgignal position or not...
> remore the tonor cartidge and insert it back while looking on the lever movements.... and you ll get whats the matter with it..
PLEASE note it,,, that i think,, the sensors are NEVER damaged !!! mind it.....my knowlegde says , sensors are hardly damaged ..
-----Adios.... Tauseem Omer...Ravian Kemcolian.

SOURCE: 2840 only prints on right side
If you are a bit adventurous and a bit patient, you perhaps can fix this yourself, and not require any disassembling. It worked for me on a similar 'carousel' unit... hp2550L.
For extra info, check this post out. http://www . fixyourownprinter . com/forums/laser/40284 (remove spaces)
If you look closely at the spot where a toner cartridge slips into a slot of sorts, you might see left side aligned and right side just a little off of 'good alignment' for that slot. What I did is to pull on the top of the black-plastic gear. Pull it toward the center of the printer.
There is a small, white gear at the very top of the black gear (not easy to see at first). By this pulling and bending of the black-plastic gear, you can get the gear teeth free of the white gear --- for just a moment. Just enough for the gear teeth to free-up and find their proper place. It doesn't take much.
When done, take a breadth and relax. Turn power off/on, and try it out.
