How to reset supplies on HP 2840 laserjet?


"Would like report of supplies from 2840 laserjet. How to get it to show report"

Select 'Menu" button, then select "Reports", then select "Supplies Report".

This will print the status of the four toner cartridges and the drum.

It doesn't make sense to reset toner cartridges UNLESS you refill them
first. On the HP 2840 each cartridge/drum contains a chip that measures
the life of the unit.

You can purchase toner/chip combinations online cheaper than new
cartridges. I also purchase drum chips to extend the use of my drum
until print quality actually starts to deteriorate.

I use both of these methods to save money on supplies - buy toner and
toner chips, buy drum chip to get full use of drum unit.

Hope this helps.

Had toner life end message. Replaced toner and drum with oem,machine reset but now just making blank copies. Tried to print internal report that's blank too


To reset the sensor after installing a new toner cartridge follow these steps.
1. With unit powered On, open the front cover.
2. Press the "Options" key. Display will show "Replace Drum?"
3. Press "Start" key.
4. Press 1,0 .
5. Display will show "Accepted" for approximately 2 seconds. Then display will change to "Cover Open".
6. Close cover and see if Toner Life End error message has gone.
Please note that this must be done with a new cartridge so the unit will see that there is toner in the cartridge.

Error Message Drum Life Over, Replace Drum


The "drum" referred to is the imaging drum which is replaced separately from the toner cartridge. The drum life is rated for a certain number of copies, and the printer is telling you it's time. Replacement drums are available at big-box office places and from many online sources. Just do a Google search for "kx-fl511 drum". The new drum just slides in much like the toner cartridge, so replacing it isn't difficult.

Right side of printed page is faded


pull out your drum unit and look inside machine above where the drum would be. you should see a black assembly that runs left to right with a "****" glass. may need a flashlight. clean that glass off with a clean rag. sometimes toner "scatter" will get on glass and cause this.

let us know,

Print is light


If you have replaced your toner and your print quality is still light, your next step is to replace your drum unit, if it has not been replaced lately. This particular drum unit has a life of roughly 12,000 pages.

Black pages when making a copy or printing something


Have you tried both drum and toner supplies? cause it sounds like a drum fault, if you have tried a new drum and toner, and it is doing it when printing internal reports, receiving fax's and copying then you have a tecnical issue to do with charge and this would likely render machine unecomical to repair (unless you can find a bad contact with drum on machine). If it receives faxs clearly but copys black then it is different issue (ie optics).

Make sure that you are not using generic supplies. Using generic supplies or supplies that have been refilled will cause the unit to give false errors. There is white piece of plastic inside the semi circular opening, if you do not see a white semi circular opening it is either a generic toner or starter toner and you will need to replace the toner with a authentic toner. You may try this also: 1. Remove the drum and toner, separate the drum and toner and then rock the toner from side to side. 2 Put the drum and toner back together and clean the corona wire ten times. 3 Put the drum and toner back inside the machine and close the cover, if you still have toner life end try this: a Open the front cover b press the options key, the LCD will say "replace drum?" c press the start key. and then press 10 on your dial pad. the display should say accepted for about 2 seconds and then say cover open. d close the cover, if the display still has toner life end, you will need to replace the toner

Double print or a shadow print


Unfortunately your drum unit is shot. The mechanism that cleans excess toner from the drum surface is worn out or has developed a problem. The materials needed to repair are generally not available. If this is happening then the surface of the drum is probably near the end of its usable life anyway. Save yourself a lot of grief and aggravation. Bite the bullet and buy a new drum unit. Office Depot, Staples, etc. usually offer them at about $105.
