HP Color Laserjet 1500 - 2500 Series
The HP 1500 Color Laserjet is the entry-level model in Hewlett-Packard's line of home and small-office color laser printers. It has the same basic specs and solid performance quality as the HP 2500 series, minus a large paper capacity and a few expansion options. Unlike some HP color lasers, which have all four toner cartridges (cyan C9702A, magenta C9703A, yellow C9702A, black C9700A) arrayed along the inside bottom of the printer, the HP 1500 and HP 2550 toner cartridge engine uses a carousel that rotates to lay down each color separately. On the control panel of the HP 2500, four lights--one for each toner color--indicate when toner cartridge levels run low. To change an HP 1500 / 2500 toner cartridge, open the front panel, press a button on the side control panel to rotate the carousel, then lift out the expired cartridge.
