    example

    1- JOB CANCEL button
    2- Attention light (red)
    3- Ready light (green)
    4- GO light (green) and button

Button usageback to table of contents

The printer has two buttons: JOB CANCEL and GO.

    Job cancel

    Press JOB CANCEL to cancel a job the printer is currently printing. The control panel lights will cycle while the print job is cleared from both the printer and the computer, and then return to the Ready state (Ready light on). This may take some time, depending on the size of the print job.

    • If JOB CANCEL is accidentally pushed, the job must be reprinted. There is no undo function.
    • If JOB CANCEL is pushed when the printer is idle, the top panel status lights will cycle, but nothing else will happen.

    Go

    • Press GO to resume printing when the printer is paused or when unprinted data is still in the printer.
    • Press GO to clear some printer errors.
    • Press GO to print a demo page. The printer must be in the Ready state (Ready light on).

Troubleshooting control panel messagesback to table of contents

Printer status is indicated by light patterns on the control panel. The lights can be in any one of the following states:

3- Blinking

Basic control panel messagesback to table of contents

The following control panel messages indicate various conditions of the printer in preparation for, or during printing.

Type of error

Light pattern

Recommended action

Startup

The Go (green), Ready (green), and Attention (red) lights cycle one after another.

example

The buttons have no effect until the printer is ready.

Ready

The Ready (green) light is on and the printer is ready to print.

The Ready light is solid.

example

No action is needed.

Pressing GO will print a demo page.

Processing

The printer is receiving or processing data when the Ready (green) light is blinking.

example

Pressing JOB CANCEL cancels the current job. One or two pages may print as the printer clears the print job. The printer will return to the Ready state (Ready light on) after the job has been canceled.

Control panel error messagesback to table of contents

The following messages indicate that there is a printer error that needs attention. Some error messages will signal a secondary light message that will indicate what type of error is occurring.

Type of error

Light pattern

Recommended action

Attention

The Attention (red) light is blinking. There are six possible causes that will display the Attention light pattern:

Paper out
Door open
Toner cartridge missing
Paper jam
Paper sensor jammed
Duplexer error

example

After the cause of the problem has been addressed, pressing GO will cause the printer to attempt to recover from the cause of the error. If the printer is unsuccessful, it will continue to display the Attention message until the cause is remedied.

Pressing JOB CANCEL will cancel the print job and the printer will return to the Ready state (Ready light on) unless there is a paper jam still in the printer or the toner cartridge is not in the printer.

Attention with the ability to continue

The Attention (red) light is blinking and the GO (green) light is on. An error has occurred that has caused the printer to halt the current print job. There are three possible causes for the Attention with the Ability to Continue message:

Manual feed with pause

Paper out (requested tray)

Continuable error

example

Manual feed with pause - Press GO to print from Tray 1 or from another tray if Tray 1 is empty.

Paper out (requested tray)
- Add paper to the requested tray to cause the printer to start the print job from that tray. Press GO to print from another tray.

Continuable error
- Press GO to cause the printer to attempt to recover from the error and print whatever data it can. If the attempt to recover from the error is successful, the Ready light will blink while the printer completes the job. If the printer cannot recover, it will display the Attention with the Ability to Continue message. Continuable errors can be caused by a job being sent to the printer with a paper size that is not loaded into a tray.

Press and hold GO and JOB CANCEL simultaneously to display a secondary light pattern that will indicate the error code corresponding to the current error condition. Release both buttons to display the Attention with the Ability to Continue message.

Pressing JOB CANCEL will cancel the print job and the printer will return to the Ready state (Ready light on) if the cause of the error has been fixed.

NOTE: The printer can be configured to automatically recover from an error using the Input Auto Continue settings in the HP LaserJet Device Configuration.

Service Error

All lights are on. An error has occurred that has caused the printer to halt the current print job. Pressing GO or JOB CANCEL with this message has no effect.

example

To clear the error, turn the printer off and then on again. If the problem persists, leave the printer off for 15 minutes to reset the formatter. If the problem continues, contact HP.

Accessory error

All of the lights are blinking in unison. An error has occurred with either the EIO port or the DIMM slots, causing the printer to halt the current print job. Pressing GO or JOB CANCEL has no effect.

example

Press and hold GO and JOB CANCEL simultaneously to display a secondary light pattern that will indicate the error code corresponding to the current error condition. Release both buttons to display the Accessory Error message.

Secondary light patternsback to table of contents

Secondary light patterns are often helpful in troubleshooting printer problems. To display the printer's secondary light pattern, simultaneously press and hold the GO and JOB CANCEL buttons until the secondary light pattern displays.
