When i on the printer then "standard top bin full pls remove paper" shows massage. I have HP laserjet printer 3005 dn . so how can i solve this problem.

You have a broken sensor flag most likely or a defective sensor. Sensor and flag located under the top cover in the top right hand back corner. Also check to see if the cable is connected on the sensor and DC controller. If everything is ok, mostly likely defective DC controller.
Often I do repairs on printers because the customer does not use it properly or just plain abuses it. Just read the manual before using.

Error 52.00 on laserjet hp p3005

Hi there! Error 52.00 is laser scanner motor error.There could be two things causing this problem.The first one is the toner cartridge.Look at the toner and try to locate a black plastic on the top of the cartridge.It should be at the top-right and it looks like a leaver.If this plastic is broken the printer will say 52.00.The other thing that can make such an error is the motor itself.To see if the motor of the laser scanner unit is ok , you need to open the printer.If you need any other help please replay!

HP 3005dn Printer Tray 1 paper jam error

If message in display panel reads [13.XX PAPER JAM [LOCATION]]Media is jammed at the specified location (and possibly at other locations). If the message persists after all jams have been cleared, a sensor or sensor lever might be stuck or broken.
For all jam messages, do the following: 1. Remove jammed print media from the specified location. Check the entire paper path for other pieces of media in the path. 2. Open and close the top cover to clear the message. 3. Check sensors and flags in the paper path for proper operation.

For message 3.0 PAPER JAM [LOCATION]
A non-specific paper jam occurred.
1. Remove jammed media from the specified location. 2. Verify the paper tray is fully closed. 3. Inspect and/or replace the feed and separation rollers. 4. Ensure there is no obstruction in the path, such as a torn piece of paper. 5. Open and close the top cover to clear the message. 6. Check sensors and flags for proper operation.

Have HP P3005 getting message "Close Top Cover", I have switched out sw 501 that detects the door being closed or open, switched out Engine controller unit, and the formatter for laughs. still get the...

There is a Daughter board is what I call it that runs the sensors in this unit that is not responding to the door at all and the switch is open.. There are sensors not the switch itself that is not the sensor on this unit. This is one of those parts that would need to be ordered from HP but you need to be a company that repairs them before they would send you out the replacments so you may have to do third part aftermarket OEM on this, Good luck with your printer it is a good one and worth the salvage!!

Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at
