Laserjet 4250, 59.40 Error

My freshly unpacked 4250 yields a "59.40 error" when powered on. The display suggests turning the printer off and then back on - I have tried this but the error persists. How do I troubleshoot this?

Since it's fresh out of the box, you might just want to return it to where you purchased it and have them give you another one.

From HP manual:

alternates with

To continue turn off then on

Since the error pointing at the print cartridge motor i also suggest that you check the toner cartridge.If possible, replace the cassette.

Re: Laserjet 4250, 59.40 Error

I followed Lindblom's suggestion and replaced the (new) cartridge with an old, discarded one and then the printer started without error. The new cartridge does actually look broken in its bottom "mechanism", which is strange since it's a brand new one.
Thanks for the help - nice to know the printer is not broken!

I also found that replacing the toner cartridge removed the 59.40 error from the HP LJ 4345MFP.
Thanks!
