Question about HP LaserJet 4200 Printer

1 Answer

My customer explains that water got poured into her HP LaserJet 4200, now it won't power on, no display, no engine noise, nothing. I have replaced the large power supply on bottom, and the fuser, still nothing. Should I order a DC controller? or what?

    The water may have shorted several modules. I would advise her to get a new or refurbished printer. Save yourself from future redo calls....

I have had this problem before and replacing the high voltage board ( that is the large board situated under the printer ) fixed it. However if you have replaced this board then I would agree that the water also took out the DC Controller Board.
The fuser probably did not need to be replaced.

My display printer is off,but it is turning on

Most likley the formatter had failed. With power off, remove the formatter, then power on and perform and engine test. Look for small hole on the right side of the printer and use a small stick or straightened paper clip to push the button that is in there.. The engine test will produce a page with lines on it and if the engine test prints then the problem is the formatter.

If you are looking for the page count, use the arrow keys until the display shows information, then press check mark, press arrows again until configuration page shows, then press checkmark. The config page has the page count on it in the left upper quarter of the page of information that prints.

HP CM2320fxi HAS NO POWER. Plug it into wall socket, push power on button, nothing happens.

I'm not positive about the 2320, but most HP laser printers use a rod that connects the power switch which is in the front of the printer to the AC power which is in the rear of the printer..
If the rod disengaged from the power switch the printer won't power on.
As you move the switch from on to off you should be able to hear a faint clicking noise from the vicinity of the power cord where it plugs into the printer.

HP Laserjet 4345mfp after memory count finishes control panel goes blank(display is working but all black) nothing else happens. I've already replaced formatter, dc controller and engine power supply,...

I'd be willing to bet that when you changed out the formatter, you used the silver square looking flash dimm from the old board and put it on the new board, If you replace the flash dimm I think your problem will indeed go away... 8mb Flash Dimm

HP LaserJet 4200 - need help resetting default tray selections

Are you using Window 7 64 bit or 32 bit? Re-install drivers appropriate for that version of your operating system. Also look at the "Paper Handling" section in the printer menu. Be sure both trays are set for "Plain" paper.
