Question about HP Color LaserJet 2600n Printer
My HP LJ 2600n printer keeps jamming after it only prints 1/2 and only 1 or 2 colors print. When I pull out the paper, I see a message on my computer screen that says: Supply Memory Error on Black. Unable to Read System Data. Reinstall Supply. If error reappears contact support.
Is there anything I can do before contacting support?? Thank you
A supply memory error is the smart chip on the cartridge. It can also be a physically damaged or locked / froze catridge. In this case the machine is identifying the black cartridge. The first thing to do is replace the cartridge (black).
If it's missing or has a corrupted smart chip lots of weird errors can result but they will usually still direct you to the specific cartridge to replace. If it's a refilled or remanufactured cartridge I would HIGHLY suspect that is the issue.
To locate the smart chip to see if it has come loose, see the picture below:
It's the green little computer board in the picture. Make sure it hasn't come loose. Below is a close-up of the chip. If it is a remanufacture or refill it should look slightly different than shown in the picture as the picture shows an original HP chip. If it's the exact same and a refill, return the cartridge to your supplier.
Hope this helps you. If so hit it with a FIXYA. If not, try to get the printer to print a configuration page or error report and let me know the last couple errors shown by numbers. (Full numbers, like 10.10.1000 or 13.02.05.)
