HP 2840 after initalisation errorcode 54.2


Either a bad cartridge or your carousel is not synchronized properly. If you just replaced a cartridge that is likely the source of the error. You can find videos on YouTube on fixing the carousel issue.

HP 2840 color laserjet prints on the right side only.


this is a mechanical problem. The cartridges are held by a carousel (rotary assembly) with the years the bushings holding that part worn or it can get out of place if its forced (when replacing a cartridge). It can be fixed, but its better to get an authorized tech to do it since it can became complicated. Try to contact a service center or call HP they can send a tech on-site for a fee

54.2 error???


You don't. This machine with worth having a professional repair. The carousel is very sensitive to alignment and there are many small things to watch for while working on it. Also remember to remove all the cartridges before you move the machine. It will make it lighter and *reduce* the chance of damaging it while in transit. Definitely take this one in.

54.2 ERROR


Hello

According to manual it means:

"Carousel rotation error: Replace the carousel drive motor or if the problem persists, replace the DC controller. It the error still persists, inspect or replace the engaging detection flag."

I think that you need to take it to service.

Best regards,

DRUM Q3964A FOR HP 2840



10.000x Supply error Description E-label can’t be read or print cartridge is not properly installed. Solution
  1. Reinstall print cartridge.
  2. Power cycle device.
  3. If the problem is not solved, replace the cartridge. NOTE: The software CD-ROM that came with the HP Color LaserJet 2820/2830/2840 all-one includes an animated tutorial that shows how to replace the print cartridges.
    1. Remove any media from the ADF, and then push the scanner-release button to open the scanner assembly.
    2. Open the cartridge door.
    3. Make sure that the correct print-cartridge slot is in the access position.
      • If the correct print-cartridge slot is not in the access position, close the top cover and the scanner assembly, and then press ROTATE CAROUSEL until the correct print-cartridge slot is in the correct position. Pinch together the two large blue tabs on the first cartridge, and then lift the cartridge straight up to remove it from the carousel.
    4. Remove the new print cartridge from its packaging, remove the orange cover from the print cartridge, and then pull the orange tab straight out to remove the sealing tape.
    5. Squeeze the blue release levers on the print cartridge, holding it with the roller facing you. Lower the cartridge straight down into the carousel until it is firmly in place.
      • To replace another cartridge, close the top cover and the scanner assembly, press ROTATE CAROUSEL , and then repeat the previous steps. NOTE: If a black print cartridge was replaced, then the device prompts to have a cleaning page ran, unless the device page count is less than 100 pages.
    6. Close the top cover, and then close the scanner assembly.
