20 Most Recent HP LaserJet 5100 Printer Questions & Answers


On the back of the printer where the network cable is plugged in, in your case it is EIO slot 1.
The problem could be the slot(EIO 1) or the JetDirect card that is plugged into that slot.
Power down and loosen the two screws on the JetDirect card and reseat it. Power up and try using the printer. If the error persists, power down and remove the JetDirect and plug it into EIO 2.
There are two screws that hold the EIO cover on. Power up and try the printer. If it works, take the two screws and the cover and use it to cover EIO 1. And you are good to go. If it fails again with a 81.02, the JetDirect may need changing

I would try to take off the control panel and reinstall. If that does not work, try a new control panel. Please turn off the printer first.

So did the engine test work? If so and the screen is blank then most likely the formatter has failed. Remove any memory that is installed on the formatter and see what happens. If it starts properly you have bad memory. Reinstall each memory until the error returns and you know which is bad. If you have a network card installed on the formatter remove that as well.

Check to make sure that you reconnected the control panel when you reassembled the printer. Also try to do an engine test to confirm that the printer is working. Have you reinstalled the formatter properly as well?

you will probably need a maintenance kit. After a while the toner roller and fuzer rollers wear down and allow more toner to be put on to the paper than is needed.

A motor error occurred.

gears in the drive train.
3. Check the main motor cable to make sure that it is seated correctly.
4. If the error persists, replace the motor, and then replace the dc controller, if
necessary.

Hello Paper feed problem are usually caused by worn feed rollers and separation pads. If you printer can not pickup the paper or pulls more than one sheet into the printer at a time then the rollers and pads need to be replaced. This is a user replaceable kit. You can get the kit here:
