You should start a separate thread to avoid confusing instructions for the two different machines, some people, (like me), display all the posts in chronological order. this website
Rt. I have the last old empty cartridge that worked before we started to have this issue. looks like either a engine board or scanner and I am leaning toward the engine board. I installed the toner cartridge in another printer and it works fine.

Respond to this 1 Moe,What happens if you pull off the chip and install the cartridge?ST by Stephen on Jan 25, 2007 at 3:32pm Add comment Please sign in to comment 0 http://www.fixyourownprinter.com/forums/printer/42998#1 by Anonymous on Jan 19, 2007 at 3:35pm Add comment Please sign in to comment 0 dekuda did the right thing by starting a new thread, pointing him back to a the 4200 thread he posted in earlier just confuses the issue. I read the link and was able to trace the issue to roller that was not seated properly. I do not have a 4100 locally that I can swap parts with.
We avoid mixing different models in the same thread as this leads to people reading advice for one model and then trying to apply it to a different model, and while some advice will apply to more that one machine, it doesn't always work.As to the error message.Check that the contact springs that connect the toner cartridge to the printer are all in the proper position.Make sure that the transfer roller is seated fully.Does it look like the cartridge is going all the way in to it's proper position? http://orgias.org/hp-laserjet/hp-laserjet-iip-error-12.html by unknown on Feb 23, 2007 at 7:17pm Add comment Please sign in to comment 0 could you repost the link ? I took the assembly out,ohmed it out to the 2 spring contact that touch the pcb. Any suggestions.
Close this window and log in. All cartridges are HP. Thank you! The link is a pdf showing how to fix the problem.
by dekuda on Jan 26, 2007 at 1:00pm Add comment Please sign in to comment 0 Normally I would not think they are related, but on this printer I'm not so sure... (I hope the end user didn't drop it)Have you tried reseating the cables to the laser/scanner, (both ends).Does the scanner sound normal when it spins up? (this is not a speed related error, I'm just curious)You could open the scanner and make sure nothing is loose inside... (never run a laser printer with the scanner open, eye hazard) by Stephen on Jan 26, 2007 at 2:59pm Add comment Please sign in to comment 0 I'd be more inclined to think the end user spilled something into it. The one end somehow got caught behind the white plastic with two contacts on it! When I get back to it I will be checking the voltage. have a peek here by dekuda on Jan 22, 2007 at 2:29pm Add comment Please sign in to comment 0 Without parts to swap there's not much you can do.I have some used firmware modules laying around if you need one we can work something out.If we're ready to start grasping at straws you could try a cold reset, it won't hurt anything to try.Cold Reset Procedure:Power off printer.Remove the JetDirect if one is installed.Power on the printer while holding the GO button down.When Cold Reset appears on the display let go of the button.
This sits next to the grounding spring.A quick alignment of the left side of the transfer roller and a gentle push to seat the roller, and the printer has been working great. side of Item twice.

Many requests to repost the link to pdf.
Removed cartridge and pried off the chip. At this point, thoroughly confused, I gave up. When the toner level gets lower, it will not absorb as much of the 5VDC, and may allow up to 4.3VDC or so to get thru. Took the transfer roller out then reinstalled , no help.
Just went and tested out the procedure. Just a theory. by servtech on Apr 2, 2013 at 8:19am Add comment Please sign in to comment Maybe this will help. I have tried several cartridges (work fine in other 4200's btw) and still get this error.
