The HP LaserJet has certainly made life easier with its power packed features. However, at the end of the day it is a machine and like all machines is bound to give errors. Here is a list of common error codes along with troubleshooting tips for each HP LaserJet printer right from model number 2 till 9500.
Error code 02: Warm up issues
This error code means it is taking over 3 minutes for your HP LaserJet printer to switch on. Make sure to check the I/O cable for loose connection. There may also be a communication issue between the printer and cable. It could indicate a faulty D.C. power outlet or formatter PCA.
Error code 11: Out of paper
This means that your HP LaserJet is most likely short of paper. Check to see if the sensor arm of the paper tray is damaged or caught somewhere. Check if the tray is empty of paper. It could also be that the paper cassette is missing or the PS2 flag is damaged. Check if the seating of the paper cassette is proper.
Error code 14: Absence of toner cart
Error code 14 indicates that the printer toner cartridge is either not properly seated or installed. It could also mean the sensitivity tabs are missing or that the toner cartridge itself is of bad quality. Make sure to check on the right hand tabs of the toner cartridge and that the switch actuator is not bent.
Error code 22: Configuration error
These error codes are typically associated with improper configuration for the computer or the printer. Make sure the I/O cable isn’t damaged. Check if the I/O port on the printer is damaged or not. Also check the EIO card inside slot X of your HP LaserJet printer. Check to see if it has overflowed.
Error code 30: PS error
PS errors refer to a postscript firmware problem. For this you will need to get a new firmware chip for your HP LaserJet to function normally again.
Error code 40: Transfer error
This usually means that there is a disconnection between data transferring from your PC to your HP LaserJet printer. However, it can be rectified if you check on the MIO card. It should have no defects. Make sure the serial configuration on both the PC and printer are the same. Make sure that connection between cables and EIO ports is established.
Error code 52: Improper scanner speed
This error code implies that the HP LaserJet scanner is having faulty speeds. Check if the scanner motor is damaged and also check if the cable assembly is faulty or not. Sometimes this could be temporary as the scanner maybe facing startup issues. The problem could also lie with the scanner cable as it could be damaged.
Error codes 70 and 71: damaged MIO card
This indicates that the MIO card also called SIMMS is faulty or damaged. Either the SIMM slot or the SIMM itself is not compatible with your HP LaserJet printer. That means you will need to get a new SIMM which is compatible.
