    Hello everyone

    Just posting this in the hope of making it easier for someone else
    down the line - we have an HP LaserJet 4050 that suddenly started
    throwing a 41.5 Printer Error and printing blanks. The fix turned out
    to be very easy but if I hadn't figured it out it may have resulted in
    an expensive service call.

    My separation roller - the blue & grey roller in the paper tray - had
    moved out of place. I just pushed it back in place and it was fixed.

    Here's a page that has pictures of the separation and feed rollers on
    a 4000 series printer. The separation roller is part of the paper tray
    and is shown in the lower picture:

    Hope this helps someone.

    Thank you so much. Sometimes one cannot see the forest for the trees. You just saved some of what little hair I have remaining.
