Failure to power down before installing or removing fuser will void warranty

Your HP P4014 P4015 P4515 fuser has been built to the highest quality standards.

If you are experiencing problems with this fuser (jams, noises, poor print quality,

etc.), please observe the following:

If the fusers sleeve does not spin when you manually turn the gear, please do not

assume that the fuser will not run in the printer. At room temperature, the grease

applied inside the sleeve thickens and may actually prevent the sleeve from

spinning. When the fuser is installed and run in the printer, the grease will heat up

and attain proper viscosity.

Service Note for HP LaserJet P4014 P4015 P4515 Fuser Assembly Replacement

If your printer’s motors and fans run continually without printing any pages, and

with “PROCESSING JOB” displayed on the control panel, along with a possible

“41.08 ERROR”, the printer’s firmware may need to be upgraded. Firmware

versions lower than 04.060.7 will exhibit this problem and can be resolved by

visiting http://www8.hp.com/us/en/support-drivers.html and downloading and

installing the current firmware revision. See Instructions on opposite side.

Other Symptoms Of Outdated Firmware

  •  Jamming without cause

  •  # 49.xx errors

  •  Printer stays in "Processing Job" and is slow to print or never actually prints

  •  Poor fusing/ poor images quality

Be certain that both sides of the fuser are firmly locked into the printer. Listen for

the two locks to snap in when you install it. If the fuser is not secured, the printer

may display a “50.3 FUSER ERROR” message or you may hear a grinding noise. In

either of these cases, remove the fuser and reinstall it making sure that both sides

are locked in place.

HP LaserJet P4014 P4015 P4515 printer maintenance count reset instructions

Resetting the maintenance count.

After installing a maintenance kit, you should reset the printer's "Maintenance Count".

There are two ways to do this, depending on your firmware revision.

Method 1

1. Turn the printer off. 2. Turn the printer on. 3. Press and hold down the OK button while the memory is counting. The memory starts counting at 000MB immediately after you turn the power on. 4. Continue to hold down the OK button until all three LEDs are illuminated. 5. Release the OK button. 6. Press the up arrow (Navigation) button until the message New Maintenance Kit appears on the control panel display. If New Maintenance Kit is not an option then you have an old firmware version (see below). 7. Press the OK button once. Your maintenance count is reset.

Method 2

Some of the older firmware versions did not have the "New Maintenance Kit" option mentioned in the above procedure. In this case you can either update the printer's firmware to ad this feature or manually reset the maintenance count in the service menu as described below.

Enter the Service Menu -- Press the MENU button, and scroll through the list of menus until you see "SERVICE". Press OK.

Before you can enter the Service Menu, you will see a blank line on the screen where you are supposed to enter an access code:

  • On a LaserJet P4014, the access code is 05401408

  • On a LaserJet P4015, the access code is 05401508

  • On a LaserJet P4515, the access code is 05451508

Enter the code and press OK.

You will now be allowed into the Service Menu. Scroll through the list of options until you see, "Maintenance Count." Press OK. Change the current maintenance count to "0" by pressing the number "0", and then pressing OK. To confirm this, you can print an Information page.
