The HP LaserJet P1005 is a workplace printer that prints up to 14 pages per minute. It has a total media capacity of 150 sheets and can print on plain paper, envelopes, labels, transparencies and photo paper. The toner chip receives alerts when the toner ink is low in the printer. It then lights up to let you know that it will be time to replace the toner ink cartridge. On occasion, it can go off when the toner ink is not low. In this instance, you can reset the toner chip so that it works properly.
