Hp HP Color LaserJet 2840

HP2840 COLOR ERORR 59.99

ANY HELP WITH THIS ERORR, IS THIS A CLUTCH (T2) ERORR.AND WHAT IS THE FIX. THANKS
a 59.99 error denotes a clutch failure error (t2) in that color laserjet model. there is a very slight possibility of the code being caused by a dc engine problem.

i'm not sure which clutch is T2, though. either RH7-5389-000CN or its RH7-5335-000CN


good luck.

i've come across 2 cases of t2 clutch error with those engine.

1st was a clj2550L (same engine as the clj2840). it turned out to be a faulty drum cartridge.

2nd was a clj2840 which i screwed up. i took the gear assembly apart and initially forgot to connect back the connector at the top of the gear assembly. that gave me the permanent 59.99 error.

after i put the connector back on, it then become intermittent. go most time but still 59.99 ocassionally.

by the way, don't take the gear assembly apart unless you have information on how to align it back!!!!!! i was told canon (who make these engine) is not telling even the authorised repairers about this. by that i meant you can remove the whole ass'y from the machine but not to dismantle the gear ass'y :)

the whole ass'y came as one unit and it's quite expensive.......

good luck and pls post back if you found the solution. i certainly am interested in knowing :)
