Firstoff, if you have tray 1 set to "any size" & "any type" they had problems with it going into calibration to frequently. If you upgrade the firmware this will take care of that. As for no Cyan, check the scanner interlock to insure it is opening the scanner cover. You could also go into diagnostics and disable cartridge check and swap the cartridges around, ie. cyan & magenta, run the print quality pages and see if the problem follows the cartridge. It could also be HV power supply.

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.)

My network laserjet 4600 only comes out black not color both when printing and just a information page from the device


http://h10039.www1.hp.com/cpso-support-new/pq/4600/home.html

Try the above troubleshooting steps for each color page that prints out for test pages.

Try to click on 'magenta' for instance, and follow the leads to a solution for your black only print problem.

Excess cyan toner is on electrostatic transfer sheet even after wiping it. All black and white pages are printed with cyan background.I am even using original cartridges.


Since you have Cyan toner in places where it should not be then the only possible cause is a defective Cyan Toner cartridge. I worked on one just last week where the customer complained about Magenta toner on their prints. I also noticed Magenta toner on the Transfer Belt just as you see Cyan toner on the Transfer Belt. I replaced the Magenta Toner Cartridge and everything cleared up nicely. The Transfer Belt Unit can also cause similar problems but it would not be ONLY one color like Cyan. It would be a mixture of all colors. My bet is replace the Cyan toner and you will be fine. If you have an old empty one just shake it up a bit and try it as well. This might allow you to verify before buying a new cartridge.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

It leaks. It's all over the inside of machine. We don't use this printer a lot because we do design on-line; so it's not from overuse or worn out parts. It just leaks and then causes the printer to stop...


I have had problems with a number of brand new genuine HP toner cartridges leaking on this printer. Strangely, I have had almost no problems with non-OEM cartridges from Cartridge World.

I can’t explain this...and wouldn’t have believed this if I hadn’t experienced it myself.

Try removing all toner cartridges, and carefully cleaning out the printer with canned air. Then replace the leaky toner cartridges with Cartridge World cartridges. This has been my recipe for success with the HP Laserjet 4600.

Hp 4600 LaserJet: magenta and black exhausted after 3000 copies, but most of them were only text. Something must be wrong, at least the configuration. Are there any possibilities to save consumer material?


This depends largely on how much toner on the page there was.

Toner use is estimated at a 5% coverage per page so full page photos take a massive amount but is offset by some pages just having a chapter subject heading.

You can set the printer to print in eccono-mode (information menu - print menumap to see where everything is).

Or you could use the printer driver in windows to print in draft mode.

Are you sure there have only been 3000 copies? You can always print off a configuration page which will give you the total number of pages printed each time you put in a new toner and work out "your " average usage or even the average cost per page.
