HP color jet 2840 cartridge not recognize

I have an HP 2840 and purchased a compatible Black Laser Toner Cartridge Q3960A. It did not recognize it and I returnned. So I went back to the local Staples and purchased an HP black cartridge. When I installted the black cartridge, I now get an error message saying "insert cyan cartridge".

I never touched the cyan cartridge. I removed it and put it back and still the same. Any advise?

Turn the printer off and turn it back on again and see if happens now.

My boss want to replace the black ink cartridge for one that prints color. Can this be done with the HP 12-a cartridges? HP Laser jet 1022


Unfortunately laser printers don't work this way. The laserjet 1022 was designed for black and white prints only. In order to do color printing with a laser printer you will need to purchase one that is designed to print in color. The laser printers work a bit differently than the inkjets - the laser printers have 4 toner cartridges, one each for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black, that work together to print a full color page. With the old inkjets you could just replace a black cartridge with a color one.

So, short answer: Sorry but no you can't make a laserjet 1022 print in color. :)

I would recommend looking at an entry level color laser printer from hp, such as the CP2025 (http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/us/en/sm/WF25a/18972-18972-3328060-15077-236268-3673580.html) if you are looking into purchasing a color laserjet.

Hope this helps

Dumb question. Did you pull the strip from the toner cartidge? OEM or aftermarket? I would try the old cartidge and see if it changes if you don't have the old cartridge anymore I would contemplate replacing the one you just purchased or taking it back to where you purchased it and get an exchange for a defective cartridge.

You Cannot override, as the black cartridge is required for all print functions. Both B/w and Color use the black, obviously in smaller amounts in color, but it still requires it none the less. Sorry, I know you were hoping to trick the printer somehow, but with HP printers it's not an option, especially on the Laser Printer models like yours.

There may be a defect in the toner cartridge causing the odd behavior. You can try resetting the printer settings to factory default or upgrading the firmware. You can reset the settings through the printer's menu. The link below should allow you to download the latest firmware and it should provide instructions for performing the update.

Replaced black toner..now printer won't print any


In this case, actually it is not the Black toner that got depleted. Here the message being displayed indicate that one of the color Toner supply need to be replaced as it got depleted and currently the printer is printing in Black and white using the Black toner cartridge.

in this case, to troubleshoot these issues please try performing the following and check for the results.

* 1. Check for the level of the toner cartridges:

a) Check from the HP Toolbox application. Here are the steps to be performed from your PC:

* Access the Toolbox software.
* Select the Status tab.
* Select the Device status option.

Here you can check for the supplies status in terms of the % remaining for each toner cartridges.

b) By checking the supplies status from the printer control panel display.

On the printer display when printer is in Ready mode the supplies status can be checked from the supplies level indicator. Each toner cartridge and the Imaging drum level will be indicated by a bar which varies according to the level of the supplies present.

c) Print the supplies status page from the printer.

* On the printer control panel menu, press Menu .
* Use the (Right Arrow) button to select Reports, and then press Enter .
* Use the (Right Arrow) button to select Supplies Status, and then press Enter .

If any of the color toner cartridges and the Imaging drum have a low supply level replace them with genuine HP print cartridges.

The part numbers of the consumables are as follows:

* Black print cartridge - Q3960A
* Cyan print cartridge - Q3971A
* Magenta print cartridge - Q3973A
* Yellow print cartridge - Q3972A
* Imaging Drum - Q3964A
