I had a similar problem with one of mine. Turns out that the output voltage on the surge protector was different than the wall outlet somehow. If it is plugged into some secondary device, unplug it and plug it directly into the wall and see if that remedies the problem.

This sounds like the swing plate assembly is starting to wear. It is not a job your average user can complete and It may be worth getting an HP eng to have a look for you.

Ring their technical helpline as their call center tech guys are red hot on diagnosing the issue on the phone.

How do I fix a 49.FF04 Service Error on an HP Laserjet 4100n


This could be several things. But most are firmware related

Unplug it from the network and power it off, then on. Does it come to ready? If it does there's a bad print job on someone's computer. Or less likely the network port is bad. Clear out all print jobs on the network then submit a new print job. If it prints, great, if it codes again, clear it and try from a different computer.

if you're printing from a Mac can probably get away with updating firmware or changing the PPD for the printer.

if its windows printing I would replace the formatter board. If you have one lying around you could try plugging in a jet direct card and seeing what it does, but I wouldn't order a jetdirect card, I'd replace the formatter.

We have a HP Colour Laser Jet 3600n. We have


nope...... the problem as you rightly poit out is the cartridges, most refills are poor quality and dont last, but the real ones are expensive but very rarely cause issues. If one colour is dodgy the entire colour process fails, print a square of each colour to determine which colour cart is the issue and complain to seller, 99.9% of print quality issues with these HP's is due to non gen toner....not much you can do, expensive is colour printer fullstop.

The printout is low quality not smooth ?


Generally with all laser printers the print quality is low when compared to that of a inkjet printer. Try cleaning the Printer Cartridge and u can make good quality print outs by changing the settings at the time of printing. Use your Laser Jet printer software from HP and clean the device.

Try this: '''Cleaning page'' in the menu, 1,2.3 times. The quality of print out getting better.
This solution is temporary, for a few pages in one day. 
If the printer is used with high intensity, there is necessary to change the Fuser Unit for HP Colour Laserjet 2600/n (200/240v) Part Number: RM1-1821-240CN or Fusing Assembly – RM1-1820(110/120v)

HP 4100N Printer prints too light.


Hi hooperengrg:
I have worked on hplj4100's for years and have ran in to this plenty of times.You will have to have the laser motor mirrors cleaned.That means removing the top cover and cleaning the toner and paper dust build up that has accumulated on the laser motor mirrors that is preventing the laser light from a 100% unobstructive scan to the photo-conductive drum inside the toner cartridge. I hope that this helps

Color laser printers. Costs for toner vs. initial costs for ptr


Have you thought about having your printer cartridges refilled? There are huge savings to be made in doing so and the quality can be just as good as the original cartridges (depending upon the refiller). Another option would be for you to purchase an older color laser printer such as the HP Color Laserjet 4500 or 4550. I use one myself and couldnt be happier with it. And as its an older printer, you can get the cartridges relatively cheap.

Laser Printer Cleaning


Does the dirty background get lighter as you print additional pages? Have you tried a new cartridge yet? Unless your toner cartridge is leaking toner (you?ll see toner on the inside of the printer or leaking out if you remove the cartridge and shake) a simple cleaning is probably not the answer. Let me know and we'll pick up later.
