CLJ 4700/30: Don't Troubleshoot with New Belt or Fuser

HP Color LaserJet 4700 and 4730 printers reset fuser and transfer maintenance counts automatically after detecting and blowing a fuse in the new fuser or transfer belt. Once the fuse has been blown, that fuser or transfer belt has lost the ability to reset the count.

This means that you should never use a new fuser or transfer belt just for troubleshooting. As soon as you power up the test printer with the new part in it, the fuse will blow, and reset the maintenance count in the printer. That has two undesirable effects:

  1. There is no way to set the printer’s maintenance count back to what it should be
  2. That fuser or transfer belt has lost the ability to reset the count in any other printer that you might install it into.

So do not install a new fuser or transfer belt in a 4700 or 4730 printer unless you intend to leave it in that printer.
