Overview of product 17
Hardware description
The product provides 1200 dot-per-inch (dpi) printing. The flatbed
scanner scans at 600 pixels-per-inch (ppi) with 24-bits per pixel (bpp)
and most models contain an automatic document feeder (ADF) that
holds up to 50 pages. On the HP LaserJet 3330mfp, the formatter
and LIU provide Group-3-compatible faxing capabilities.
The product prints 15 pages per minute (ppm) on letter-size paper or
14 ppm on A4. With 1200 dpi printing resolution, the product has
exceptional text and graphics print quality. The simple control panel
and improved paper handling make this product very easy to use.
The main input tray has a 250-sheet capacity for continuous, multiplepage printing. The priority input tray allows for manual feed of up to
ten sheets. Both trays are center-justified for all supported paper
sizes. The output bin holds up to 125 sheets.
The product has a very fast first-page-out, at less than ten seconds.
The formatter board contains 4 MB of ROM, 32 MB of RAM, and an
embedded 32-bit Coldfire V3 processor. There is one DIMM slot
available for font or memory expansion (supporting an 8 MB, 16 MB,
32 MB, or 64 MB DIMM).
The print engine has a 1,000 average (10,000 peak) page-per-month
duty cycle. The standard toner life is 2,500 pages, and the highcapacity toner life is 3,500 pages with 5% toner coverage.

Print cartridge information
The print cartridge is designed to simplify replacement of the major
consumable parts. The print cartridge contains the printing
mechanism and a supply of toner.
At five percent page coverage, a standard print cartridge will print
approximately 2,500 pages. However, a cartridge should print more
pages if it regularly prints pages with less coverage, such as short
memos. The cartridge might print fewer pages if heavy or bold print is
used.
For best results, always use a print cartridge before the expiration
date stamped on the cartridge box.
Refilled print cartridges
While Hewlett-Packard does not prohibit the use of refilled print
cartridges during the warranty period or while the product is under a
maintenance contract, it is not recommended for the following
reasons:
Repairs resulting from the use of refilled cartridges are not
covered under Hewlett-Packard warranty or maintenance
contracts.
Hewlett-Packard has no control or process to ensure that a
refilled cartridge functions at the high level of reliability of a new
HP LaserJet toner cartridge. Hewlett-Packard also cannot predict
the long-term reliability effect on the product from using different
toner formulations found in refilled cartridges.
The print quality of HP LaserJet print cartridges influences the
customer’s perception of the product. Hewlett-Packard has no
control over the actual print quality of a refilled cartridge.
Parts that are critical to print quality may not be replaced when
the cartridge is refilled with toner.
Recycling print cartridges
In order to reduce waste, Hewlett-Packard offers a recycling program.
Cartridge components that do not wear out are recycled. Plastics and
other materials are recycled. Hewlett-Packard pays the shipping
EN
Print cartridge information 25
costs from the user to the recycling plant (within the United States).
To join this recycling effort, follow the instructions inside the print
cartridge box.
FCC Part 68 Requirements (US)
This equipment complies with FCC rules, Part 68. On the back of this
equipment is a label that contains, among other information, the FCC
registration number and ringer equivalence number (REN) for this
equipment. If requested, this information must be provided to the
telephone company. The REN is used to determine the quantity of
devices which may be connected to the telephone line. Excessive
RENs on the telephone line may result in the devices not ringing in
response to an incoming call. In most, but not all, areas, the sum of
the RENs should not exceed five (5.0). To be certain of the number of
devices that may be connected to the line, as determined by the total
RENs, contact the telephone company to determine the maximum

the fax controls to send and receive faxes. These controls and the fax
menu or software are used to change commonly used fax settings.
Figure 5.
Fax controls
The HP 3330 has extensive faxing capabilities. This manual
describes only sending a fax to one recipient and receiving a fax. For
a full description of the fax capabilities, see “Faxing” in the User
Guide on the product CD.
To send a fax to one recipient

• Use the alphanumeric buttons on the product’s control panel.
• If the fax number you are calling has been assigned to a onetouch key, press that key.
• If the fax number you are calling has a speed-dial code, press
speed dial, enter the speed-dial code using the alphanumeric
buttons, and press menu/enter.
Note
EN
When dialing with the alphanumeric buttons, include any pauses
or other needed numbers, such as an area code, an access code
for numbers outside a PBX system (usually a 9 or 0), or a longdistance prefix. For more information, see “Using dialing
characters” in the User Guide on the product CD.

To fax to numbers you use regularly, you can assign a one-touch key
or speed-dial code as described in the User Guide on the product CD.
If you have electronic phone books available, you may be able to use
them for selecting recipients. Electronic phone books are generated
with third-party applications.
Note
If you want to improve the quality of a paper document before faxing
it, scan the document, straighten or clean the image, and send it
as a fax from the software. For more information, see the product
software Help.
To receive faxes when you hear fax tones
In general, incoming faxes to the product are automatically received.
However, if other devices are connected to the same phone line, the
product may not be set to answer automatically.
If the product is connected to a phone line that receives both fax and
phone calls, and you hear fax tones when you answer the extension
phone, receive the fax in one of two ways:
Note
If you are near the product, press fax/send on the control panel.
Press 1-2-3 in sequence on the extension phone keypad, listen

Guidelines for using media
Paper and Transparencies
Paper must be of good quality and free of cuts, nicks, tears, spots,
loose particles, dust, wrinkles, holes, and curled or bent edges.
Check the label on the paper package for details about the type of
paper (such as bond or recycled).
Some paper causes print quality problems, jamming, or damage to
the printer.
Note
Do not use letterhead that is printed with low-temperature inks,
such as those used in some types of thermography, raised
letterhead, or colored paper or preprinted forms that use inks
incompatible with the printer temperature (200° C or 392° F for
0.1 second).
Transparencies must be able to withstand 200° C (392° F), the
printer’s maximum temperature.
Common media problems table
Symptom
Problem with paper
Solution
Poor print quality or toner

Might be too heavy.
Use lighter paper.
Excessive curl, or problems
with feeding.
Too moist, wrong grain
direction, or short-grain
construction.
Use long-grain paper.
Jamming, or damage to
printer.
Cutouts or perforations.
Do not use paper with cutouts
or perforations.
Problems with feeding.
Ragged edges.
Use good quality paper.
Faulty paper lot.
46 Chapter 2 - Operation
Print using the straightthrough output path.
EN
Labels
When selecting labels, consider the quality of the following factors:
Adhesives: The adhesive material should be stable at 200° C
(392° F), the printer’s maximum temperature.
Arrangement: Only use labels with no exposed backing between
them. Labels can peel off sheets that have spaces between the
labels, causing serious jams.
Curl: Prior to printing, labels must lie flat with no more than
13 mm (0.5 in) of curl in any direction.
Condition: Do not use labels with wrinkles, bubbles, or other
indications of separation. Never use a sheet of labels that has
already been run through the printer.
Envelopes
Envelope construction is critical. Envelope fold lines can vary
considerably, not only between manufacturers, but also within a box
from the same manufacturer. Successful printing on envelopes
depends on the quality of the envelopes. When selecting envelopes,
consider the following factors:
Weight: The weight of the envelope paper should not exceed 105
g/m2 (28 lb), or jamming might result.
Construction: Prior to printing, envelopes should lie flat with less
than 6 mm (0.25 in) curl and should not contain air. Envelopes
that trap air may cause problems.
Condition: Make sure that the envelopes are not wrinkled,
nicked, or otherwise damaged.
Sizes: From 90 x 160 mm (3.5 x 6.3 in) to 178 x 254 mm
(7 x 10 in).
Store envelopes flat. If air is trapped in an envelope, creating an air
bubble, the envelope might wrinkle during printing.
EN
Guidelines for using media 47
Envelopes with double-side seams
An envelope with double-side-seam construction (vertical seams at
both ends of the envelope rather than diagonal seams) is more likely
to wrinkle. Make sure the seam extends all the way to the corner of
the envelope as shown in the following illustration:
Acceptable
Unacceptable
Envelopes with adhesive strips or flaps
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: 200° C (392° F). The extra flaps and
strips might cause wrinkling, creasing, or jams.
Card stock and heavy media
For optimum performance, do not use paper heavier than 157 g/m2
(42-pound). Paper that is too heavy might cause misfeeds, stacking
problems, paper jams, poor toner fusing, poor print quality, or
excessive mechanical wear.
Note
You might be able to print on heavier paper if you do not fill the
input tray to capacity and if you use paper with a smoothness rating
of 100 to 180 Sheffield.
48 Chapter 2 - Operation
EN
Card stock construction
Smoothness: 135-157 g/m2 (36-to 42-pound) card stock should
have a smoothness rating of 100 to 180 Sheffield. 60-135 g/m2
(16- to 36-pound) card stock should have a smoothness rating of
100 to 250 Sheffield.
Construction: Card stock should lie flat with less than 5 mm
(0.2 in) of curl.
Condition: Make sure that the card stock is not wrinkled, nicked,
or otherwise damaged.
Sizes: Only use card stock within the following size ranges:
• Minimum: 76 x 127 mm (3 x 5 in)
• Maximum: 216 x 356 mm (8.5 x 14 in)
Card stock guidelines
If the card stock curls or jams, print using the straight-through
output path.
Set margins at least 2 mm (0.08 in) away from the edges.
Loading media
Loading media to print
Main input tray
The main input tray holds up to 250 sheets of 75 g/m2 (20 lb) paper or
a 25 mm (0.98 in) stack of heavier media. Load media with the top
forward and the side to be printed facing up. To prevent jams and
skew, always adjust the side media guides.
Priority input tray
The priority input tray holds up to ten pages of 75 g/m2 (20 lb) paper
or one envelope, transparency, or card. Load media with the top
forward and the side to be printed facing up. To prevent jams and
skew, always adjust the side media guides.
CAUTION
EN
If you try to print on media that is wrinkled, folded, or damaged in
any way, a jam might occur. See the User Guide located on the
product CD for more information.
Loading media 49
Note
When you add new media, make sure that you remove all of the
media from the input tray and straighten the stack of new media.
This helps prevent multiple sheets of media from feeding through
the printer at one time, reducing paper jams.
Specific types of media
Transparencies and labels: Load transparencies and labels
with the top forward and the side to be printed facing up. See the
User Guide located on the product CD for more information.
Envelopes: Load envelopes with the narrow, stamp side forward
and the side to be printed facing up. See the User Guide located
on the product CD for more information.
Letterhead or preprinted forms: Load with the top forward and
the side to be printed facing up. See the User Guide for more
information.
Cards and custom-sized media: Load with the narrow side
forward and the side to be printed facing up. See the User Guide
located on the product CD for more information.
Selecting originals for the ADF
The ADF is recommended for plain paper copying, scanning, and
faxing (faxing can be done only from the ADF).
Note
If you want to fax an original that is not appropriate for the ADF,
make a copy of it first on the flatbed, then fax the copy.
ADF originals specifications
Input capacity: The ADF holds up to 50 sheets of flat 60 to
90g/m (16- to 24-pound) plain paper.
Media size: Only use plain paper within the following size ranges:
• Minimum: 127 mm x 127 mm (5 x 5 in)
• Maximum: 215.9 mm x 381 mm (8.5 x 15 in)
Note
You must use the flatbed to scan or copy small or delicate originals
(such as newsprints, business cards, and photos), or documents
with tears, perforations, or punch holes. If you want to fax such
items, make a copy first on the flatbed and then fax the copy.
50 Chapter 2 - Operation
EN
Perform the following actions to minimize the possibility of jams:
Remove self-stick notes.
Remove staples and paper clips.
Straighten any curls, folds, or wrinkles in documents before
putting them into the document feeder tray.
Do not insert any document with glue, correction fluid, or wet ink
on it.
Do not insert gum-backed paper or labels.
Avoid multiple-copy forms.
Do not scan originals that are larger or smaller than supported
size limitations. See the User Guide for more information.
Note
To obtain good results, it is important that you use the correct
resolution and color settings for your job. See the User Guide
located on the product CD for more information.
Media information for the flatbed
Use the flatbed scanner for copying and scanning if the media is
fragile, thin, thick, or damaged (folded, wrinkled). The flatbed scanner
provides the best copy and scan quality.
The flatbed has no minimum size and a maximum size of legal. In
order to make a copy of a legal-size document, the paper size must
be changed using the paper size button. Otherwise, the copy will be
cropped to the default paper size.
Loading originals to copy or scan
Use these instructions to load originals into your HP LaserJet
3300mfp series for copying or scanning. For the best-quality scans
and copies, use the flatbed scanner. See "Selecting originals for the
ADF" for guidelines on choosing original documents for scanning and
copying.

Basic functions 75
Formatter system
The formatter coordinates the major systems. It is responsible for the
following:
controlling the scanner formatter
formatting and controlling copies
receiving and processing print data from the printer interface
monitoring the control panel and relaying printer status
information
developing and coordinating data placement and timing with the
print engine
communicating with the host computer through the bidirectional
interface
communicating document data to and from the LIU
The formatter receives print data from the bidirectional Extended
Capabilities Port (ECP) mode interface or Universal Serial Bus (USB)
interface and converts it into a dot image. The ECU synchronizes the
image formation system with the paper-feed system and signals the
formatter to send the print image data. The formatter sends the print
image data (dots) in the form of a video signal, and the printing
process begins.
Central processing unit
The formatter incorporates an embedded Coldfire V3 microprocessor
operating at 90 MHz.
Line Interface Unit (LIU)
The LIU provides the required safety isolation, signal coupling, and
impedance matching between the telephone line and the modem
chipset.
Scanner formatter PCA
The scanner formatter manages the functions of the control panel,
and controls audio, scanning, and the ADF. It relays scanning data,
control panel data, and other control data to the main formatter PCA.
76 Chapter 4 - Operational overview
EN
Flash memory or ROM
The formatter system includes firmware code that controls the
product stored in either flash memory or ROM, depending on when
the product was manufactured. Initially the formatters in all
manufactured units are built with flash memory. As the product
manufacturing matures, the code is stored in standard read-onlymemory (ROM).
Units with firmware code in flash memory allow the firmware code to
be recovered or updated. The firmware update/recovery process is
described in Chapter 6. Units with firmware code in ROM will not
require firmware code recovery or updating.
Standard Boot Process
When the product is unplugged or the power is off, the firmware code
is stored on the formatter in two blocks. The first block of code is an
executable boot block (about 64K of code). The second block of code
is a compressed version of the product control code.
When the product is powered up, the boot block decompresses the
product control code and stores it in RAM. Then the product performs
a full startup with the control code running from RAM.
Product startup messages
The LED display contains different messages depending upon the
progress of the boot process:

Formatter system 77
RAM
One bank of Non-Volatile RAM (NVRAM) stores parameters.
Dynamic random access memory (DRAM) provides temporary
storage of the product program code plus copy, scan, and print
data.
Parallel interface or Universal Serial Bus
interface
The formatter receives incoming data through its bidirectional ECP or
USB interface. These interfaces provide high-speed, two-way
communication between the product and the host, allowing you to
change product settings and monitor product status from the host
computer.
Control panel
The control panel configuration varies by model in the HP LaserJet
3300mfp series. For example, only the HP LaserJet 3330mfp has the
fax buttons.
The HP LaserJet 3300mfp series control panel consists of:
up to six groups of buttons to control fax, copy, scan, and
configuration functionality (with all six on the HP LaserJet 3330).
a 2 x 16 LCD display for display of status, menus, and messages.
up to two front panel status lights (one by the cancel button and
one by the fax/send button on the HP LaserJet 3330).
Draft mode
Depending on which driver is used, selecting draft or EconoMode
from the driver allows the product to use approximately fifty percent
less toner, extending the life of the print cartridge.
MEt
HP MEt effectively doubles the standard memory through a variety of
font and data-compression methods.
78 Chapter 4 - Operational overview
EN
Enhanced I/O
The Enhanced I/O feature allows product memory to be used for
storing data received from the host computer. When Enhanced I/O is
enabled, you can send more data to the product in shorter amounts of
time, which allows you to return to your application sooner. Enhanced
I/O has the following options:
Auto—allows the product to use Enhanced I/O memory
allocation to increase the speed of data transfer from the host
computer to the product, if necessary. The default setting is Auto.
Off—uses the minimum amount of product memory for storing
data sent from the host computer.
Page Protect—allows the formatter to create the entire page
image in page buffer memory before physically moving the media
through the printer. This process ensures that the entire page will
be printed.
Page complexity (ruling lines, complex graphics, or dense text)
can exceed the printer’s ability to create the page image fast
enough to keep pace with the image formation process. If Page
Protect is disabled and a page is too complex, the page might
print in parts (for example, the top half on one page and the
bottom half on the next page). Some print-data loss is likely in
these instances, and the product will display an error message.
PJL overview
Printer Job Language (PJL) is an integral part of configuration, in
addition to the standard Printer Command Language (PCL). With
standard ECP cabling, PJL allows the product to perform functions
such as:
EN
Two-way communication with the host computer through a
bidirectional parallel or USB connection. The product can
communicate information to the host (such as the control panel
status).
Isolation of print environment settings from one print job to the
next. For example, if a print job is sent to the printer in landscape
mode, the subsequent print jobs print in landscape only if they
are formatted for landscape printing.
Formatter system 79
Scanner and ADF functions and operation
Scanner Functions
The scanner uses a light source, a color-separation method, and a
Charge Coupled Device array (CCD) to collect optical information
about the document and transform that into an image file. The
scanner consists of:
a lamp (cold fluorescent bulb)
five mirrors and a lens
a CCD
Scanner Glass
CCFL Lamp
600 ppi CCD
Lens
Figure 11.
Optical diagram of scanner
The scanner lamp illuminates a small strip of the document (called
the raster line). The light is directed via the mirrors through the lens to
the CCD. The CCD senses and records the light, creating an analog
representation of the raster line. If using the ADF, the document then
advances in the ADF to the next raster line. If using the flatbed, the
scanner module advances to the next raster line. This advancing and
collection process continues up to the end of the sheet.
80 Chapter 4 - Operational overview
EN
The image data is collected in the scanner formatter where it is
processed and sent to the formatter. The formatter then handles the
image data, outputting it as a copy, sending it through the LIU as a
fax, or directing it to the computer as scanner output.
The image data collected is 600 pixels per inch. Each pixel has 8 bits
for each of the three colors (256 “grey” levels for each color) or a total
of 24 bits per pixel (24-bit color).
Scanner Operation
Upon power-up and periodically at other times, the scanner assembly
moves systematically to locate its home position. It then calibrates
itself to a white label located under the glass at the right end of the
scan tub.
If a document is detected in the ADF when a copy or scan is initiated
(from software or control panel), the scan module moves to the left
side of the scan tub and stops. The image is acquired as the paper is
fed through the ADF past the scanner module.
If no document is detected in the ADF, or if the model does not have
an ADF, the scan module acquires the image from the flatbed glass
while slowly moving within the scan tub.
ADF Operation
Standby (paper loading) mode: In standby mode, the pickup roller
is up and the stack stop is down, preventing the user from inserting
the document original in too far. When a document is inserted
properly, it is detected by the paper-present sensor.
The standard operation of the ADF consists of the pick, feed, and lift
steps.
Pick: Upon receipt of a copy or scan command, the ADF motor
engages the gear train to lower the pick roller assembly and raise the
stack-stop. The first roller is called the pre-pick roller and serves to
move the top few sheets forward into the ADF. The next roller is the
pick roller. This roller contacts the ADF separation pad which
separates multiple pages into single sheets.
Feed: The single sheet continues through the path. Along the way, it
is detected by the form sensor a set distance from the ADF glass.
This alerts the scanner to start when the page reaches the glass. The
scanner acquires the image, one raster line at a time, until the end of
the page is detected and the page is ejected. The pick and feed steps
are repeated as long as paper is detected in the ADF input tray.
EN
Scanner and ADF functions and operation 81
Lift: When no more paper is detected in the ADF input tray and the
trailing edge of the last page is detected by the form sensor, the last
sheet is ejected and the motor turns in a sequence which lifts the pick
roller assembly to standby or “paper loading” mode again.
The ADF will not function with the ADF door open. The paper path is
incomplete if the ADF lid is lifted from the glass.

82 Chapter 4 - Operational overview
EN
ADF Jam Detection
The ADF has two sensors that detect paper. The paper present
sensor detects the presence of media in the ADF input tray. The form
sensor detects media moving through the ADF. If a jam is detected,
the ADF immediately stops the paper feeding and the control panel
displays a jam message.
A jam can be detected under any of the following conditions:
EN
Document feeder jam—When documents are detected as
present in the ADF input tray, and a command to copy, scan or
fax is received, the scan module travels to the left side of the
scan assembly and stops beneath the ADF scanner glass. The
ADF then attempts three times, or for about ten seconds, to
advance the paper to the form sensor. If the paper does not
advance, the scan module travels back to the home position on
the right side of the scanner assembly. The control panel displays
the message Doc. Feed Mispick. Reload.
Long document jam—If the paper has advanced to trigger the
form sensor, but the trailing edge is not detected within the time
allowed for a 15 in document (the maximum allowable page
length for the ADF), the scanner returns to the home position at
the right side of the scanner assembly. The control panel displays
the message Doc. Feed Jam.
Stall jam—When a page that is less than 15 in long has
advanced to the form sensor but has not left it within the expected
time, the paper has probably stalled or jammed. The scanner
returns to the home position at the right side of the scanner
assembly. The control panel displays the message Doc. Feed
Jam.
Other—If the paper stops in the ADF and the scan module
remains under the ADF scanner glass, an internal firmware error
has probably occurred. This is usually remedied by cycling the
power.

Paper motion monitoring and control
The ECU controls paper motion in the printer by continuously
monitoring the various paper sensors and coordinating the timing with
the other print processes.
For a detailed explanation of paper movement and the interaction of
the photo sensors and solenoid with the paper movement process,
see “Printer paper-feed system” on page 94.
Motor
The motor is controlled by the ECU. The motor provides all of the
printer paper movement.
Printer laser/scanner drive
The ECU sends signals to the laser/scanner assembly to modulate
the laser diode “on” and “off” and to drive the laser/scanner motor.

Power system on ECU
The AC, DC, and high-voltage power supply circuits are all contained
within the ECU.
AC power distribution
The AC power circuitry supplies AC voltage whenever the power cord
is connected to the AC power source. AC voltage is distributed to the
DC power supply circuitry and to the AC driver circuitry, which
controls AC voltage to the fuser assembly heating element.
DC power distribution
The DC power distribution circuitry, located on the ECU, distributes

Overcurrent/overvoltage
There are two overvoltage devices in this product:
Fuse F101 provides overcurrent protection for the fusing system
circuitry.
Fuse F102 provides overcurrent protection to the printer DC
power supply circuitry.
You can check or replace the fuses by removing the back cover
(page 164).
In addition, the +24 Vdc and +3.3 Vdc power circuitry contains an
overcurrent protection circuit that automatically shuts off the output
voltage when an overcurrent condition occurs as a result of a short or
an abnormal voltage on the load side. These circuits automatically
reset.
High-voltage power distribution
The high-voltage power supply applies an overlap of DC and AC
voltage to the primary charging roller and the developing roller. This
circuit also applies a positive or negative DC voltage to the transfer
roller according to the instructions from the engine control unit.
This circuit also controls the image density by changing the primary
AC voltage and the developing AC bias according to the print density
setting.
EN
Printer functions and operation 89
High voltage is disabled when the print cartridge door is open. When
the left-side door is opened, the print cartridge door also opens,
disabling high voltage.

Image formation system
Laser printing requires the interaction of several different
technologies including electronics, optics, and electrophotographics
to provide a printed page. Each process functions independently and
must be coordinated with the other printer processes. Image
formation consists of seven processes:
Writing stage
Conditioning stage
Figure 17.
Image formation block diagram
Print cartridge
As the focal point of the image formation system, the print cartridge
contains toner and houses the cleaning, conditioning, and developing
stages of the process. The print cartridge contains the photosensitive
drum, primary charging roller, developing station, toner cavity, and
cleaning station. By including these components (which wear,
degrade, or are consumed) in the replaceable print cartridge, the
need for many service calls is eliminated. The special photosensitive
properties of the drum form an image on the drum surface and then
transfer the image to media.
CAUTION
EN
The print cartridge does not include a light-blocking shutter. Do not
expose the drum to light, which can permanently damage the drum.
Protect the print cartridge whenever you remove it.
Printer functions and operation 91
The seven image-formation processes
1
Conditioning stage (primary charging)—This process applies
a uniform negative charge to the surface of the drum with the
primary charging roller, which is located in the print cartridge. The
primary charging roller is coated with conductive rubber. An AC
bias is applied to the roller to erase any residual charges from
any previous image. In addition, the primary charging roller
applies a negative DC bias to create a uniform negative potential
on the drum surface. The print density setting modifies the DC
voltage.
2
Writing stage (scanning exposure)—During this process, a
modulated laser diode projects the beam onto a rotating scanning
mirror. As the mirror rotates, the beam reflects off the mirror, first
through a set of focusing lenses, then off a mirror, and finally
through a slot in the top of the print cartridge, and onto the
photosensitive drum. The beam sweeps the drum from left to
right, discharging the negative potential wherever the beam
strikes the surface. This creates a latent electrostatic image,
which later is developed into a visible image.
Because the beam sweeps the entire length of the drum while the
drum rotates, the entire surface area of the drum can be covered.
At the end of each sweep, the beam strikes the beam-detect lens,
generating the beam-detect signal (BD signal). The BD signal is
sent to the ECU where it is converted to an electrical signal used
to synchronize the output of the next scan line of data.
3
Developing stage—During this process, the latent electrostatic
image is present on the drum. The toner particles obtain a
negative surface charge by rubbing against the developing
cylinder, which is connected to a negative DC supply. The
negatively charged toner is attracted to the discharged (exposed,
grounded) areas of the drum, and it is repelled from the
negatively charged (unexposed) areas.
4
Transfer stage—During this process, the toner image on the
drum surface is transferred to the media. The transfer roller
applies a positive charge to the back of the media, which attracts
the negatively charged toner on the drum surface to the media.
After separation, the drum is cleaned and conditioned for the next
image.
92 Chapter 4 - Operational overview
EN
EN
5
Separation stage—During this process, the media separates
from the drum. To stabilize the feed system and prevent toner
dropouts on the printed image at low temperature and humidity,
the static eliminator reduces the charge on the back of the media.
6
Fusing stage—During this process, the heat and pressure fuse
the toner into the media to produce a permanent image. The
media passes between a heated fusing element and a soft
pressure roller, which melt the toner and press it into the media.
7
Drum-cleaning stage—During this process, the cleaning blade
is in contact with the surface of the drum at all times. As the drum
rotates during printing, the cleaning blade wipes excess toner off
the drum and stores it in the waste toner receptacle.
Printer functions and operation 93
Printer paper-feed system
The main input tray and the priority input tray merge into one main
input area. Media placed in any of these areas activates the paperout sensor (PS201), which informs the ECU that media is present.
The following steps occur when the product receives a print job:
Step 1 The ECU activates the laser/scanner assembly and the
motor. Paper motion begins when the ECU energizes the
solenoid (SL001).
Step 2 The paper pickup roller rotates once. The paper lift plate
pushes the media against the pickup roller.
Step 3 The pickup roller grabs the top sheet and advances it to the
feed assembly drive rollers. To ensure that only one sheet is
fed, a main separation pad and two subpads hold the
remainder of the stack in place.
Step 4 The feed assembly drive rollers advance the media to the
top-of-page sensor (PS402). This sensor informs the ECU of
the exact location of the leading edge of media, so that the
image being written on the photosensitive drum can be
precisely positioned on the page.
Step 5 The feed assembly drive rollers then advance the media to
the transfer area where the toner image on the
photosensitive drum is transferred to the media.
Step 6 After the image is transferred, the media enters the fuser
assembly where heat from the fuser and pressure from the
pressure roller permanently bond the toner image to media.
The paper delivery sensor (PS401) determines that the
media has successfully moved out of the fusing area.
Step 7 The fuser assembly exit rollers deliver media to either the
paper output bin or the straight-through output path,
depending upon the position of the straight-through output
path door.

Printer functions and operation 95
Jam detection
The paper-out sensor (PS201) detects the presence of media in
either the priority input tray or the main input tray. The top-of-page
sensor (PS402) and the paper delivery sensor (PS401) detect media
moving through the printer. If a jam is detected, the ECU immediately
stops the printing process and displays a jam message on the control
panel.
A jam can be detected under any of the following conditions:
Pickup delay jam—Media does not reach the top-of-page
sensor (PS402) after the pickup solenoid (SL001) has been
turned on twice (the original pickup plus a retry) within 2.8
seconds.
Pickup stationary jam—The top-of-page sensor (PS402) does
not detect the trailing edge of media within 4.6 seconds of
detecting the leading edge.
Delivery-delay jam—The paper delivery sensor (PS401) does
not detect the leading edge of media within 2.1 seconds after the
top-of-page sensor (PS402) detects the leading edge.
Wrapping jam—The paper delivery sensor (PS401) does not
detect the trailing edge of the media within 1.5 seconds after the
top-of-page sensor (PS402) detects the leading edge and within
ten seconds after the paper delivery sensor (PS401) detects the
leading edge.
Delivery-stationary jam—The paper delivery sensor (PS401)
does not detect the leading edge of media within 2.2 seconds
after the top-of-page sensor (PS402) detects the trailing edge.
Residual paper jam—The top-of-page sensor (PS402) or the
paper delivery sensor (PS401) detect media in the initial rotation
period.

LIU (fax) functions and operation
PSTN operation
The public switched telephone network (PSTN) operates by having a
central office (CO) that generates a constant voltage on the TIP and
RING wires (48 V usually). When a device goes on-hook it does so by
connecting impedance (such as 600 ohms for the US) across TIP and
RING allowing a line current to flow. The CO can detect this current
and it can send things like dial tones. The product generates more
signaling tones such as dialing digits to tell the CO how to connect the
call. The product also is able to detect tones like a busy tone from the
CO to tell it how to behave.
When the call is finally connected, the CO behaves as if it were a
piece of wire connecting the sender and receiver. This is the period
during which all of the fax signaling and data transfer occurs. When a
call completes, the circuit goes open again and line current ceases to
flow, removing the CO connection from both sender and receiver.
All of this is done with a two-wire arrangement. The two wires are
called TIP and RING on all phone systems and on most phone
systems they appear on pins 3 and 4 of the RJ-11 modular jack (the
one on the LIU for HP LaserJet 3330mfp. These two wires do not
have to be polarized, as it is expected that all equipment works with
either TIP or RING on pin 3 and the other one on pin 4. This allows
the use of cables of either polarity to be interconnected and still work.
These are the basic functions of PSTN operation that are assumed in
the design of the fax subsystem for HP LaserJet 3330mfp. The
product generates and detects the signaling tones, currents, and data
signals required to transmit and receive faxes on the PSTN.
The fax subsystem
On the HP LaserJet 3330mfp, the formatter, LIU, firmware, and
software all contribute to the fax functionality. The designs of the
formatter and LIU along with parameters in the firmware determine
the majority of the regulatory requirements for telephony on the
product.
The HP LaserJet 3330mfp fax subsystem is designed to support V.34
fax transmission as well as lower speeds such as V.17 fax and older
fax machines.
100 Chapter 4 - Operational overview
EN
Formatter in the fax subsystem
The formatter contains the modem chipset (DSP and CODEC) that
controls the basic fax functions of tone generation and detection,
along with channel control for the fax transmissions.
The CODEC and its associated circuitry act to control transmit and
receive gains, and compensate for transmission signal coupling into
the receive channel. Also on the formatter is circuitry to add
termination impedance to help match the telephone network
impedance.
LIU in the fax subsystem
Two versions of LIU are used in the HP LaserJet 3330mfp. One is
used in the Americas and for Asia. The other is used primarily in
Europe.
Differences in the European version include:
a different voltage protection device
current limiting of the DC current
filtering for the countries/regions that use billing or metering tones
control of the impedance of the DC circuit via SHUNT signal
Due to the lack of polarization on TIP and RING, all LIU circuitry that
connects to TIP and RING is bi-directional. The LIU operates
identically when TIP and RING are reversed.
The rest of this section describes the hardware functions of the LIU.
Safety isolation
The most important function of the LIU safety isolation between the
high-voltage, transient prone environment of the telephone network
(TNV - telephone network voltage) and the low-voltage analog and
digital circuitry of the formatter (SELV - secondary extra low voltage).
This safety isolation provides both customer safety and product
reliability in the telecom environment.
Any signals that cross the isolation barrier do so either optically or
magnetically. The breakdown voltage rating of barrier-critical
components is greater than 1.5kV.
EN
LIU (fax) functions and operation 101
Safety-protection circuitry
In addition to the safety barrier, protection against RING and overcurrent events is an LIU function.
Telephone over-voltages can be either differential mode or common
mode. The RING can be transient in nature (a lightning induced surge
or ESD) or continuous (a crossed power line with a phone line). LIU
protection circuitry provides margin against combinations of RING
events.
Common mode protection is provided by the selection of high voltage
barrier critical components (transformer, relay, and optoisolators).
The safety barrier of the LIU PCB traces and the clearance between
the LIU and surrounding components also contribute to common
mode protection.
A voltage suppressor (a crowbar type SIDACTOR) provides
differential protection. This device becomes low impedance at
approximately 300V differential, and crowbars to a low voltage. A
series thermal switch works in conjunction with the crowbar for
continuous RING events, such as crossed power lines.
When the differential RING is continuous, the resulting over-current
causes the thermal switch to become high impedance, disconnecting
RING from the network and protecting the crowbar from thermal
overload. The thermal switch automatically resets to low impedance
after the over-current condition is removed reconnecting RING to the
network.
Data path
The magnetically coupled signals that cross the isolation barrier go
either through a transformer or a relay. The TIP and RING signals
use a transformer as a means to cross the isolation barrier.
TIP and RING are the two-wire paths for all signals from the
telephone network. All signaling and data information comes across
them, including fax tones and fax data.
The telephone network uses DC current to determine hook state of
the telephone, so it is necessary to have line current present during a
call. On some line interfaces this current flows through the
transformer, but on the HP LaserJet 3330mfp LIU, it is blocked by a
capacitor from going into the transformer.
Blocking the current with a capacitor prevents the core of the
transformer from being saturated by the high DC voltage, which can
affect the AC signal quality. Rather than through the transformer, this
102 Chapter 4 - Operational overview
EN
LIU is designed so the current flows through another circuit called a
gyrator or DC hold circuit. This creates the path for the central office
current to flow when a call is in progress.
Hook state
Another magnetically coupled signal is the control signal for
disconnection of the downstream telephone devices (such as a
phone or answering machine). A control signal originating on the
formatter can change the relay state causing the auxiliary jack
(downstream jack) to be disconnected from the circuit.
The HP LaserJet 3330mfp is able to take over a call it recognizes as
a fax. If it doesn’t directly answer the line, it still listens to incoming
calls for the fax tone or for direction from the user to receive a fax.
This idle mode is also called eavesdropping. This mode is active
when the product is on-hook but there is current in the downstream
phone line due to another device being off-hook. During
eavesdropping, the receive circuit is enabled but has a different gain
than during normal fax transmissions.
The HP LaserJet 3330mfp product does not take control of the line
unless it detects a fax tone or unless the operator tells it to manually
connect. This is good because it allows the user to make voice calls
from a phone connected to the HP LaserJet 3330mfp without being
cut off during voice calls.
Downstream current detection
A signal that is optically coupled is the aux phone detect signal. This
signal tells the firmware that there is an active phone (or modem or
answering machine) connected to the auxiliary port of the product
(the right side of the RJ-11 jack).
A circuit that can detect current above a certain threshold generates
the downstream current detection signal. The downstream current
goes through a resistor, generating a voltage. If this voltage is above
the level of the voltage that would be generated by a current at the
threshold level, the signal changes state.
The downstream current detection signal is coupled back to the
formatter through an optoisolator across the safety isolation barrier.
This signal is used by firmware to ensure the product does not go offhook (and disconnect a downstream call) until it has been authorized
to do so (by a manual fax start or detection of the appropriate tones).
EN
LIU (fax) functions and operation 103
Hook switch control
Another signal coupled optically is the hook switch control. This is a
signal from the formatter that causes an optoisolator on the LIU to go
active (making an open circuit into a short circuit). When shorted, the
circuit is drawing DC current from the central office and is considered
“on-hook.” When open, there is no DC current and the state is
considered to be “off-hook.”
For pulse dialing, the optoisolator is toggled on and off with a
particular timing sequence to generate pulses recognized as dialing
digits by the central office of the telephone company.
Ring detect
Another optically coupled signal on the LIU is ring detect. Ring detect
is a combination of voltage levels and cadence (time on and time off).
They both must be present to have a valid ring detected by the
product.
The LIU works with the firmware to determine if an incoming signal is
an answerable ring. Circuits on the LIU detect a ring voltage above a
certain threshold and a corresponding signal is passed to the
formatter indicating the ring is above the threshold. The firmware then
measures the time the signal is high and low and qualifies the
cadence to decide if it is a valid ring.
Line current control
The DC current from the CO needs to have a path to flow from TIP to
RING. Since it does not flow in the transformer, a path through some
transistors and diodes (the DC hold circuit) acts like a simulated
inductor (thus replacing the function of the transformer). This DC hold
circuit is the main component of the voltage-current characteristic
seen between TIP and RING.
Two other functions of this block of circuits are the current limit and
the SHUNT for Europe. Current limit basically maintains a constant
current from TIP to RING once the voltage reaches around 50mA.
The voltage can vary and the current will remain the same.
The shunt function changes the impedance (the current-voltage
characteristic) during certain special events such as pulse dialing and
going on-hook.
During such an event, the firmware tells the DSP on the formatter to
activate SHUNT. A signal goes to the LIU through an optoisolator
(optically coupled) which changes the state of some transistors so
104 Chapter 4 - Operational overview
EN
that the board has a linear current characteristic (normally it’s current
limited). This allows more current to flow to the network as required
by these special events.
Billing (metering) tone filters
Switzerland and Germany provide high frequency AC signals on the
phone line for the purpose of billing customers. LC filters are provided
on the European LIU's to prevent these billing signals from adversely
affecting the data path and the DC hold circuit.
An additional filter in the cable (for certain countries/regions) may in
some cases supplement these LC filters. These billings signals are
not used in the US, so these filters are not present on the US LIU.
Fax page storage in flash memory
Fax pages are the electronic images of the document page that have
been scanned to be sent to another fax machine, have been
generated to be sent by the computer, or have been received from a
fax machine to be printed.
The HP LaserJet 3330mfp stores all fax pages in flash memory
automatically. Once these pages are written into flash memory they
are stored until either the pages are sent to another fax machine,
printed on the device, transmitted to the PC, or erased by the user.
These pages are stored in flash memory, which is the non-volatile
memory that can be read from, written to, and erased repeatedly. The
HP LaserJet 3330mfp has 4 MB of flash memory of which 3.4 MB is
available for fax storage. The remaining 0.6 MB is used for the file
system and reclamation. Adding RAM does not affect the fax page
storage since the HP LaserJet 3330mfp does not use RAM for storing
fax pages.
Accessibility of stored pages
Stored fax pages can be accessed by the user for reprinting or resending in case of errors. Other fax devices store fax pages in either
normal RAM or short-term RAM. The LaserJet 3100 and 3150 use
short-term RAM while the OfficeJet products use normal RAM.
Normal RAM immediately loses its data when power is lost while
short-term RAM loses its data about 60 minutes after power failure.
Flash memory maintains its data for years without any applied power.
EN
LIU (fax) functions and operation 105
Advantages of flash memory storage
Fax pages stored in flash memory are persistent. They will not be lost
due to power failure no matter how long the power is off. Users can
reprint faxes in case the print cartridge runs out of toner or the
product has other errors while printing faxes.
The HP LaserJet 3330mfp also has scan-ahead functionality that
makes use of flash memory. Scan-ahead automatically scans pages
into flash memory before a fax job is sent. This allows the sender to
pick up their original document right after it is scanned, eliminating the
need to wait until the fax is transmission is complete.
Because fax pages in the HP LaserJet 3330mfp are stored in flash
memory, not RAM, more RAM is available in the HP LaserJet
3330mfp to handle larger and more complicated copy and print jobs.

refilled.
Inspect the print cartridge to see if toner is leaking through worn
seals.
Check the surface of the photosensitive drum in the cartridge to
see if it has been damaged or scratched. Touching the drum
contaminates the photosensitive surface and can cause spotting
and image defects.
Blurred areas on printed pages indicate that the photosensitive
drum in the cartridge has been overexposed to light. Because
overexposure to light causes permanent damage to the
photosensitive drum, the cartridge should be replaced.
Note
A print cartridge weighs approximately 863 gm. (30.5 oz.) when it
is full, approximately 766 gm. (27.0 oz.) when it first fades, and
approximately 742 gm. (26.2 oz.) when it is empty.
To redistribute toner in the print cartridge
Before installing a new print cartridge or when toner begins to run
low, redistribute the toner by rotating the cartridge back and forth five
or six times.

Functional checks
Engine test
The engine test is used to verify that the print engine is functioning
correctly. The formatter is bypassed during an engine test, so the
engine test is useful for isolating printer problems. The engine test
prints horizontal lines down the entire printable area of a page and is
also useful for checking and adjusting registration.
Printing an engine test
The engine test switch is inside the left side door, below the formatter.
To print an engine test, open the left side door and, using a nonconductive probe, depress the engine test switch. A single test page
will print.
CAUTION
Use a non-conductive probe to depress the engine test switch.
Inserting a conductive probe to depress the switch can damage
the product.
Note
The formatter must be connected to the ECU to perform an engine
test. (See callout 1 in figure 86 on page 165.) Otherwise, the printer
does not print.
You must override the print cartridge door interlock (SW 301). (See
“Paper path check” on page 206.)

Half self-test functional check
The electrophotographic process can be subdivided into the following
stages:
image formation stage (charges the drum and writes a latent
image to the drum with the laser)
development stage (forms a toner image on the drum)
transfer stage (transfers the image to paper)
cleaning stage (removes excess toner from the drum)
fusing stage (applies heat and pressure to make the image on
paper permanent)
To perform a half self-test check
The purpose of the half self-test check is to determine which process
is malfunctioning.
1
Print a self-test page. (See “Troubleshooting tools” on page 209.)
2
Open the print cartridge door after the paper advances halfway
through the printer (about five seconds after the motor begins
rotation). The leading edge of the paper should have advanced
past the print cartridge.
3
Remove the print cartridge.
4
Open the print cartridge drum shield to view the drum surface. If a
dark and distinct toner image is present on the drum surface,
assume that the first two functions of the electrophotographic
process are functioning (image formation and development).
Troubleshoot the failure as a transfer or fusing problem.
To perform other checks
If there is no image on the photosensitive drum, perform these
checks:
EN
1
Make sure you removed the entire length of the sealing tape from
the print cartridge before you installed the cartridge.
2
Perform a drum rotation functional check. (See “Drum rotation
functional check” on page 202.)
3
Perform a high-voltage power supply check. (See “High-voltage
power supply check” on page 204.)
Functional checks 201
Drum rotation functional check
The photosensitive drum, located in the print cartridge, must rotate for
the print process to work. The photosensitive drum receives its drive
from the main drive assembly.
Note
This test is especially important if refilled print cartridges have been
used.
1
Open the print cartridge door.
2
Remove the print cartridge.
3
Mark the drive gear on the cartridge with a felt-tipped marker.
Note the position of the mark.
4
Install the print cartridge and close the print cartridge door. The
startup sequence should rotate the drum enough to move the
mark.
5
Open the print cartridge door and inspect the gear that was
marked in step 3. Verify that the mark moved.
If the mark did not move, inspect the main drive assembly to make
sure that it is meshing with the print cartridge gears. If the drive gears
appear functional and the drum does not move, replace the print
cartridge.

event that new firmware is released for the product or recovered in
the event of code corruption or failure. When the product is mature,
formatters are manufactured with permanent ROM, and updating or
recovering the firmware code is not necessary.
Firmware update via flash executable
The configuration page lists the firmware version of the product. On
flash-memory-based products, you can update the firmware code by
downloading the latest flash executable for the product and running
the program according to the readme instructions that come with it. If
the firmware should become corrupted or fail (usually because of an
interruption when attempting to update the firmware), the product will
no longer function. In this case, a firmware recovery DIMM is
available from HP.
Firmware recovery DIMM
A firmware recovery DIMM can be obtained from HP in the rare event
that the firmware in flash memory becomes corrupted. When the
DIMM is installed in the DIMM slot on the formatter and the product is
powered up, the DIMM loads the latest firmware code into the
product.

User has pressed cancel causing fax
session to be prematurely halted.
Allow the product to receive the fax.
222
The local machine has answered a call
but has been unable to detect the
presence of a calling fax machine.
Typically this is caused by the local fax
machine answering a voice call.
-OrThe remote user canceled the fax
transmission by pressing cancel
immediately prior to, or just as the local
machine answered the call.
-OrThe remote machine automatically
ended the call immediately prior to, or
just as the local machine answered the
call.
-OrThe remote (calling) fax machine
determined there was a feature
incompatibility between the two and
disconnected immediately before
transmitting any further fax tones or T.30
frames. (This is a very rare and nonstandard behavior.)
1
Confirm that the remote caller is a
fax machine and not a voice call.
(Typically we must rely on the
remote user informing the caller that
the fax session failed.)
2
If the remote machine ends the call
just as the local machine starts
reception, reduce the ring count
after which the local machine
answers. Alternatively suggest that
the remote user manually dials to
the local machine and then
manually starts the fax session, by
pressing Start once fax tones have
been heard from the local machine.
3
Confirm the remote user is not
inadvertently attempting to poll
transmit from the local machine,
instead of transmitting to the local
machine.
4
Reconfigure the local fax machine
to use different configuration
settings, toggle the ECM state and/
or select a slower reception speed.
223 (ECM error)
The local machine has been unable to
receive an entire page even after
multiple attempts to re-receive the parts
of the page that contain errors. This is
usually caused by extremely poor line
conditions.
Reattempt the fax reception at a different
time when telephone line conditions
have improved.
-OrDisable ECM. Errors may still occur, and
may result in degraded image quality on
the received page. However, the ability
to receive the entire document will be
improved.
224
The local machine has received one or
more pages with excessive errors. This
is usually caused by extremely poor line
conditions. Error correction is not used
during this session so errors are not
corrected. It should be noted that some
non-HP machines may optionally choose
to resend the entire failed pages, but we
will be unable to determine if the
received page corrects problems with a
previously received page.

228
The remote machine has attempted to
initiate a poll transmission from the local
machine even though the local machine
is not configured for poll transmission.
1
Confirm that polling by the remote
user is desired. It is possible that
the remote user has inadvertently
attempted to poll. If this is the case,
reattempt a normal transmission
from the remote machine.
2
If polling by the remote user was
desired, confirm that the local
machine was correctly configured
for poll transmission.

The remote fax machine is attempting to
receive instead of send. Both machines
have attempted to start a reception at the

initiate a fax reception after dialing on
many machines, if there is no paper in
the machine or if the paper is not

would be when the local machine wanted
to initiate polling, but the remote machine
did not support this mode of operation.
1
Confirm that the remote user is not
inadvertently attempting to poll
transmit from the local machine,
instead of transmitting to the local
machine. This mode of operation
must be specially configured on the
local machine. If poll transmission
from the local machine is the
desired mode of operation confirm

The remote machine has attempted to
renegotiate the session mode from ECM
to non-ECM between pages. This
operation is not supported, and the
session has been abandoned.
Reattempt the fax reception and split the
document into two portions corresponding to the ECM and non-ECM portions.
Some machines will attempt to use nonECM for photo mode, so this may be
associated with a between page
encoding change to support photo mode.
291
This isn't a communication error, and it is
not expected that this error will occur
under non-development scenarios.
Reception has failed because the local

The transmitting machine is unable to
send continuous ones at the end of the
control channel prior to starting the
primary channel. This is a V.34 error.
This error may be associated with line
conditions although it is more likely to be
caused by internal problems with the
modem.

Error condition
Solution
431
The transmitting machine has not
received a response after aborting a
transmission. Depending upon when the
session is aborted, some remote
machines may not respond. It should be
noted that the local unit always attempts
to abort the session in such a way that
the remote machine is allowed to
respond to the final PPS_EOP.
No action required. The session was
aborted.
440-444
Error occurred during a V.34
transmission after one or more partial
pages (image data) were transmitted
using the primary channel. The
transmitting machine was unable to
restart the control channel in order to
resume the T.30 handshake. This
typically occurs when the receiving
machine prematurely disconnects during
partial page reception, although it is
possible it may also be caused by
compatibility issues.
Reattempt the fax reception at a different
time when telephone line conditions
have improved.
Translating the fax trace report
Print a fax log report (see the user guide for instructions). The fax log
report contains information about the product’s interpretation of the
problem.
Read the time sequences, looking for abnormal activity on the fax
trace report. See table 24, “Fax phase sequence,” on page 223, and
table 25, “Appropriate responses,” on page 224, to separate normal
from abnormal activity. Fax abbreviations appear in table 26 on page
225.
Identify the phase in which the error occurred.
Note
??? is an unidentified command.
Examples of a successfully sent fax and a successfully received fax
appear after the tables.

telephone regulations. Reset the language and country/region
code after performing NVRAM init.
NVRAM init resets the following:
All menu settings to factory default values, including fax header
and company name
Factory settings such as formatter number, page counts, and
factory paper settings
Fax memory—all faxes in memory are erased
All localization settings, including language and country/region code
To perform NVRAM init

NVRAM PJL factory variables
To use these commands, you need some method to send PJL
commands to the product, either with a software tool or by copying a
file that contains the commands from the host using a DOS box. For
example, from the DOS prompt:
copy /b filename lpt1
Here is an example of a file that uses one of the commands:
ESC%-12345X@PJL SET SERVICEMODE=HPBOISEID
@PJL ‘command’
@PJL RESET
Here is an example of using the NVRAMINIT command:
ESC%-12345X@PJL SET SERVICEMODE=HPBOISEID
@PJL NVRAMINIT
@PJL RESET
234 Chapter 6 - Troubleshooting
EN
Note
Set SERVICEMODE before trying to set the variable or you will not
get the desired result. Also reset the PJL to be sure the
SERVICEMODE status is cleared.
To create these files, you need a text editor that can insert the ESC
character or is able to copy it from an existing file. If a software tool is
used, simply send the same strings in the same order as given for the
example files.

How to use the parts lists and diagrams
The figures in this chapter illustrate the major subassemblies in the
product and their component parts. A table (material list) follows each
exploded assembly diagram. Each table lists the reference
designator, the associated part number for the item, and a description
of the part.
Parts that have no reference designator or part number are not fieldreplaceable units and cannot be ordered.
While looking for a part number, pay careful attention to the voltage
listed in the description column to make sure that the part number
selected is for the correct product model.
