Managing the UltraPrecise Toner Cartridge Redistributing the Toner Cleaning the Printer Using the Printer Cleaning Processes Chapter 3 Printer Tips and Maintenance 69...
Toner Cartridge Life Expectancy The life of the toner cartridge depends on the amount of toner that print jobs require. When printing text at 5% coverage, an HP LaserJet 2100 toner cartridge lasts an average of 5,000 pages. This assumes the print density is set to 3 and EconoMode is off.
Open the top cover. Remove the toner cartridge from the printer. WARNING! Avoid reaching too far into the printer. The adjacent fusing area may be hot! CAUTION To prevent damage, do not expose the toner cartridge to light for more than a few minutes.
72 Chapter 3 Printer Tips and Maintenance Note If toner gets on your clothing, wipe it off with a dry cloth and wash clothing in cold water. (Hot water sets toner into fabric.) Reinsert the toner cartridge into the printer and close the top cover.
Clean the inside with a dry, lint-free cloth. CAUTION Do not use ammonia-based cleaners on or around the printer. While cleaning the printer, be careful not to touch the transfer roller (located underneath the toner cartridge). Skin oils on the roller can cause print quality problems.
This 10-minute process consumes toner and if used often can reduce toner cartridge life. Starting the Cleaning Process 1. Make sure the printer is turned on and in the ready state. Make sure there is paper loaded in Tray 2. 2. Press and hold the flash.
Cleaning the printer will eliminate or reduce these problems. WARNING! Before cleaning the printer, turn the printer off and unplug the power cable. Open the top cover. Remove the toner cartridge. CAUTION To prevent damage, do not expose the toner cartridge to light for more than a few minutes.

The paper storage environment should be properly maintained to ensure optimum printer performance. The required condition is 20° to 24° C (68° to 75° F), with a relative humidity of 45% to 55%. The following guidelines should be helpful when evaluating the paper's storage environment: Paper should be stored at or near room temperature.
6 mm (0.25 in.) curl, and should not contain air. Condition: Envelopes should not be wrinkled, nicked, or otherwise damaged. Temperature: You should use envelopes that are compatible with the heat and pressure of the printer. Size: You should use only envelopes within the following size ranges. Tray 1 Note Use only Tray 1 to print envelopes.
Envelopes with a peel-off adhesive strip or with more than one flap that folds over to seal must use adhesives compatible with the heat and pressure in the printer. The extra flaps and strips might cause wrinkling, creasing, or even jams and may even damage the fuser.
Envelope Margins The following gives typical address margins for a commercial #10 or DL envelope. Type of Address Return address Delivery address Note For the best print quality, position margins no closer than 15 mm (0.6 in.) from the edges of the envelope. Avoid printing over the area where the envelope’s seams meet.
Labels CAUTION To avoid damaging the printer, use only labels recommended for laser printers, such as HP-brand labels. (For ordering information, see page 25.) To prevent serious jams, always use Tray 1 to print labels and always use the rear output bin.
(392° F), the printer’s fusing temperature. CAUTION To avoid damaging the printer, use only transparencies recommended for use in laser printers, such as HP-brand transparencies.

See “Accessories and Ordering Information” on page 23. Note Single in-line memory modules (SIMMs) used on previous HP LaserJet printers are not compatible with the printer. You may want to add more memory to the printer if you often print complex graphics or PS documents, or use many downloaded fonts.
If you have not already done so, print a configuration page to find out how much memory is installed in the printer before adding more memory. After the configuration page is printed, turn the printer off and disconnect the power cord.
154 Appendix C Printer Memory and Expansion Remove the DIMM from the antistatic package. Holding the DIMM by the edges, align the notches on the DIMM with the DIMM slot. (Check that the locks on each side of the DIMM slot are open.)
Checking Memory Installation To verify that DIMMs are installed correctly: 1. Turn the printer on. Check that the printer control panel displays the Ready light after the printer has gone through the startup sequence. If an error message appears, a DIMM may have been incorrectly installed.
Open the interface cable door by pressing on the release tabs. Disconnect all interface cables. Locate the EIO Slot. Firmly insert the HP JetDirect EIO card into the EIO slot. Twist in the retaining screws. Attach the appropriate network cable to the EIO card.
The PCL 6 printer commands take full advantage of the printer’s features. HP-GL/2 The printer has the ability to print vector graphics using the HP-GL/2 graphics language. Printing in the HP-GL/2 language requires that the printer leave PCL language and enter HP-GL/2 mode, which can be done by sending the proper PCL codes.
To receive more information about printer commands via fax, call HP FIRST (Fax Information Retrieval Service Technology) and request an index for HP LaserJet printers. (See the HP Support pages at the front of this user guide.) Understanding PCL Printer Command Syntax...
Many printer commands use the lowercase letter l (l) and the number one (1), or the uppercase letter O (O) and the number zero (0). These characters may not appear on your screen as shown here. You must use the exact character and case specified for PCL printer commands.
3. The final character of the combined escape sequence must be uppercase. The following escape sequence string would be sent to the printer to select legal paper, landscape orientation, and 8 lines per inch: ?&l3A?&l1O?&l8D The following escape sequence sends the same printer commands by combining them into a shorter sequence: ?&l3a1o8D...
Font List. A sample section is shown below. Notice the two variable boxes for symbol set and point size: These variables must be filled in or the printer will use defaults. For example, if you want a symbol set that contains line-draw characters, select the 10U (PC-8) or 12U (PC-850) symbol set.
