Service Approach
Repair of the printer normally begins with the use of the printer's internal diagnostics in conjunction with the troubleshooting procedures in Chapter 7. Once a faulty part is located, repair is generally accomplished by assembly level replacement of Field Replaceable Units (FRUs). Some mechanical assemblies may be repaired at the subassembly level. PCA component replacement is not supported by Hewlett-Packard. Part numbers for all FRUs are located in Chapter 8 of this manual.

Parts Exchange Program
HP offers remanufactured assemblies for some selected parts. These are identified in Chapter 8 and can be ordered through HP's Parts Direct Ordering (PDO), or Parts Center Europe (PCE).

Ordering Parts
Field replaceable part numbers are found in Chapter 8 of this manual. Replacement parts may be ordered through HP's Parts Direct Ordering (PDO), or Parts Center Europe (PCE).

Ordering Consumables
The printer has no consumables other than the toner cartridge, which may be ordered directly from Hewlett-Packard. Refer to Chapter 8 for ordering information.

Warranty
This warranty gives you specific legal rights. You may also have other rights, which may vary from area to area. Hewlett-Packard warrants the 5L and 6L LaserJet printers against defects in materials and workmanship for a period of one year from the date of purchase by the end user and is not transferable. During the warranty period, Hewlett-Packard will, at its option, either repair or replace hardware products that prove to be defective. Should Hewlett-Packard be unable to repair or replace the product within a reasonable amount of time, a refund of the purchase price may be made upon return of the product. To have your printer serviced by Hewlett-Packard, you must make arrangements to have it serviced in the country of purchase.

Warranty Exclusions
The warranty on your HP LaserJet printer shall not apply to defects or damage resulting from:



Improper or inadequate maintenance by customer. Customer-supplied software or interfacing. Unauthorized modification or misuse. Operation outside of the environmental specifications for the product. Operation of nonsupported printing media. Duty cycle abuse (see later explanation). Operating the printer from a mechanical switchbox without a designated surge protector. Improper site preparation and maintenance. Use of non-HP toner cartridges (see explanation) or DRAM (JEDIA) memory cards. The use of non-Hewlett-Packard toner cartridges does not affect either the warranty or any maintenance contract purchased from Hewlett-Packard. However, if an HP LaserJet printer failure or printer damage is found to be directly attributable to the use of any non-HP product, the repair will not be covered under the warranty or HP maintenance contract. Hewlett-Packard cannot recommend use of non-HP toner cartridges, either new or remanufactured, because they are not HP products and Hewlett-Packard cannot influence or control their quality. Operation of the printer beyond the limit of its duty cycle (printing more than the equivalent of 4,000 single-sided pages per month on the HP LaserJet 5L or more than the equivalent of 6,000 single-sided pages per month on the HP LaserJet 6L) shall be deemed printer abuse and all repairs thereafter will be billed on a time and materials basis. 1-14 Product Information

If you are using a mechanical switchbox, ensure that it is equipped with a surge protector. Damage to your printer could occur from the use of unprotected mechanical switchboxes. The warranty period begins either on the date of delivery or, where the purchase price includes installation by Hewlett-Packard, on the date of installation.

Product 1 Information

Warranty Limitations
The warranty set forth above is exclusive and no other warranty, whether written or oral, is expressed or implied. Hewlett-Packard specifically disclaims the implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose. Some areas do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the preceding limitation or exclusion may not apply to you. However, any implied warranty of merchantability or fitness is limited to the one-year duration of this written warranty. In no event will Hewlett-Packard or its suppliers be liable to you for any consequential or incidental damages, including any lost profits or lost savings, or for any claim by any party, even if a representative of HP or its suppliers has been advised of the possibility of such damages. Some areas, states, or provinces do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the preceding limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.

Voltage Conversions
HP LaserJet printers are manufactured to different specifications for different countries. Because of these differences, HP does not recommend transporting products sold within one country to another country. In addition to the 115-220 voltage environment concerns, the country of final destination may have different import and export restrictions, power frequencies, and regulatory requirements.
Note

The HP LaserJet family printers must be serviced by an authorized repair depot or reseller within the country where the printer was originally purchased. Because of the different specifications and warranty coverage limitations, Hewlett-Packard does not offer a conversion, or support the conversion, of HP LaserJet family printers. We advise those customers planning to transport equipment to different countries to purchase the products in the country of final destination.
