Over a week ago my boss had her printer (HP 2550Ln) suddenly stop working. I checked the warning light an it was the Imaging drum that needed replacing. I looked around and did some research and got to the approximate price of £ 90-something for a replacement. Well I looked at the last page printed on that printer and the quality was very good, actually it was as good as when the printer first arrived so I went to the HP website where I read about the Imaging Drum and how it works, interesting way of making money out of costumers.
The printer’s Imaging drum has a built in counter so after a X number of copies it stops working and needs to be replaced even if the quality is still great.
After looking around for a bit on the internet I found a site which gave me very simple instructions on how to reset a HP Imaging Drum for the models Laserjet 2550 2550L 2550Ln.
I did it and it worked, the printer is printing away with great quality. Please remember this is just a tip, do it at your own risk.
