Re: HP Laserjet 3055 No Print Cartridge

I got it working based on the prior replies we saw. Printer was turned off overnight. We pulled the cartridge out (basically new) and pushed on that white lever--up and down a few times inside the printer on the deep left. Put the cartridge back into and and went to ready and was good to go.

Re: HP Laserjet 3055 No Print Cartridge

I had the same problem and swapped with a new cartridge to no avail. Checked this forum and fiddled with the white lever. Didn't help.

Then I found another thread regarding the same topic, which said that it could actually be a paper jam which messes up the sensor. I checked, and that indeed was the problem. There was a sheet that was just partially fed in, so it was easy not to notice. After removing the sheet, no more problem.

Seems that the error message can be misleading sometimes.

Re: HP Laserjet 3055 No Print Cartridge

Got same error message. Thought that it was odd given that the cartridge was pretty new. Bought new cartridge. Same error message -- very frustrating. Jiggle white lever seemed to work.
Sad that HP didn't formally respond to this thread. I'd expect better from HP.

[ Edited ]

There isnt a flag sensor for toner in laser printers.

Toner is sensed by a combination of things, if the cartridge has an E-label then it reads that, also it detects current drawn from the high voltage through the developer - the toner is conductive as it contains magnetite.

The first detection is the current drawn, this provides cartridge detect signal.

Inside the cartridge there is a small flat plate, this picks up the current passing through the toner, providing a signal to the toner level sensor, this provides toner level sense.

All of these depend on one thing, the drum must have a good earth - the white lever your playing with engages the earth, no earth = no cartridge detect, no toner detect.

 

The flag being mentioned in the interim posts appears to be the registration flag, this is a different fault so try to focus on your particular issue and not divert.

If there is media present, a power cycle is always first - the printer should try and flush any media,if not always remove media in the direction of travel, pulling it backwards can and will damage flags.

 

Apologies in not seeing this post sooner, I would have responded.

 

If it ain't simple it ain't worth doing.
(Don't forget Kudos if people have helped)

Re: HP Laserjet 3055 No Print Cartridge

by jayman. To fix the no cartridge problem first pull the feed paper back as some may be in the way of the white lever having tension on it. It must kick forward not just flop back and stay.
