Hp HP LaserJet 4100TN

Hp Laserjet 4100tn 58.3 (not the toner)

The printer (in title) gives imediate 58.3 error. I read on these forums that it might be the antenna assembly for the cartridge. well took for ever to get a new one but it still has the same problem after switching with a working printer.

Any other suggestions?
Are you sure of the error. I have never seen that error and it is not listed in the service manual. There is a 58.2 error which relates to the enviormental thermistor (th3) so I can not be much help here.

There was one other thread where someone had that error on a 4100TN, but there was no resolution posted.

I emailed the poster, but suspect I'll never hear back, it was a post from 2004.

A 58.3 error occurs when that the memory controller PCB is unable to communicate with the toner cartridge memory.

The error can be caused by:

Toner cartridge

Antenna assembly

Memory controller PCB.

The one thing I do not see in the original post was did they ever swap out the toner cartridge since it is possible the chip on the toner is causing issues.

I've never seen that issue on a printer, but let me see if I can steer you in the right direction. At the front center of the toner cartridge, you'll see an indentation and in that indentation is the chip. From what I understand, it works on RF. If you look inside the printer, there is a rectangular white piece of plastic that moves around a bit. That must be what reads the chip and what they call the antenna assembly. I would take a look at that and see if it isn't somehow damaged or off it's mounting.
