Is this from out of the box or has it been working OK until the last toner change?
Which cartridge is identified as the problem?
Can you hear toner moving freely inside the cartridge?
Hopefully its a simple error with the one cartridge and you could return it to HP.
In combination with the error code the could be a problem with the printer detecting its presence though. A failure internally is less likely but a more costly fix


If you have another cartridge of the same type swap it in.
If you get no change remove all the cartridges and reset the printer

This is in reference to the scanner unit.

Since you seem to have some experience with the mechanics of this printer (removing the ITB and cleaned contacts) I have a rather technical suggestion.

You have to make sure that the scanner unit is seated correctly in it's slot.
First, there are a few pins that needs to be holding the scanner unit tightly, you should not be able to move the unit at all if it is seated correctly.

Secondly, check that there is a small spring attached to the scanner unit between two clasps.

On the assumption that you did indeed pull out the shipping lock completely, I found two suggestions on the internet (at http://h30499.www3.hp.com/t5/Printers-LaserJet/CP2025-Error-quot-Remove-shipping-lock-quot/td-p/1036335 ):

a) Try putting the cartridge in question into a different slot in the tray and initialize the printer. You will get an error saying the cartridge is in the wrong position. If so, you can then put the cartridge back into the original slot. If it will not clear, you will need the cartridge and/or the printer replaced.

b) Reset the printer to factory defaults
The Restore Defaults has worked for us a couple times now. To perform this function, use the controls on the top of the printer:
- Click OK
- Arrow over to the Service menu
- Arrow over to Restore Defaults
- Click OK
- The printer will reboot itself and go through a few minutes of initializing/calibrating, and the error will no longer come up.
