Control-panel message types

Four types of control-panel messages can indicate the status of or problems with the product.

Message type
Status messages
Status messages reflect the current state of the product. They inform you of normal product operation and require no interaction to clear them. They change as the state of the product changes. Whenever the product is ready, not busy, and has no pending warning messages, the product displays the Ready status message.
Warning messages
Warning messages inform you of data and print errors. These messages typically alternate with the Ready message or other status messages and remain until you press the OK button. Some warning messages are clearable. If you set the CLEARABLE WARNINGS setting to the JOB option in the CONFIGURE DEVICE menu, the next print job clears these messages.
Error messages
Error messages communicate that you must perform some action, such as adding paper or clearing a jam.
Some error messages are autocontinuable. If the AUTO CONTINUE setting is turned on in the CONFIGURE DEVICE menu, the product continues normal operation after an autocontinuable error message displays for 10 seconds.
HP Laserjet P3010 note Control panel message types NOTE:

Pressing any button during the 10-second autocontinuable error message overrides the auto-continue feature, and the button function takes precedence. For example, pressing the stop button HP Laserjet P3010 stop Control panel message types pauses printing and offers the option to cancel the print job.

Critical-error messages
Critical error messages inform you of a product failure. You can clear some of these messages by turning the product off and then on. These messages are not affected by the AUTO CONTINUE setting. If a critical error persists, service is required.
