Good news for LJ 4000 and LJ 4050 users — many accessories made for the LJ 4100 will work with your printers. An example is the 500-sheet stackable paper tray (C8055A). If you can't get ahold of a C4124A 500-sheet feeder for the 4000 and 4050, you may be glad to know you can use the C8055A instead!

The HP LaserJet 4050 Series replaced the best-in-class HP LaserJet 4000 Series printers – offering increased printing and networking performance, increased printer versatility, and lower total cost of ownership. See specification table below.

Printing and networking performance is boosted by the 133-MHz processor, twice the standard memory in both the base and network models, and a 10/100Base-TX HP JetDirect internal print server for faster network throughput.

HP LaserJet 4050 Series printers offer a versatile, expandable design to accommodate general office or specialized printing needs today or in the future. What's more, new security, management, and convenience features deliver a level of usability and manageability that was once available only with more expensive department-level HP LaserJet printers.

Designed as part of a complete network printing solution, HP LaserJet 4050 Series printers make it easier and more affordable than ever to print what you want, how you want it, when you want it

Regular preventive maintenance will help keep your printer in top condition! See links below for details.
