HP LaserJet printers use a laser beam and one (or more) toner cartridge to print directly without ink. Using laser toner cartridges, the typical laser printer can produce precision prints more quickly than ink.
Laser printers can print much faster than inkjet printers can. Most are equipped with high-capacity paper trays, so they can print more pages at a given time. They`re also built to handle the printing of thousands of pages per month without succumbing to wear-and-tear.

The HP LaserJet 4250 printer series is a monochrome laser solution for workgroups of 10 – 15 users. These printers have print speeds of up to 45 ppm1 (letter)/43 ppm1 (A4) and built-in Instant-on technology that lets you have the first page in less than 8 seconds.
HP had worked with Canon on laser printer technology as far back as the 1970s. This background, coupled with HP`s knowledge of inkjet technology, led to the introduction of the first LaserJet in March 1984. The new personal laser printer fit on a desktop and produced fast, letter-quality output with virtually no noise.
As print quality goes down over time, this will be a reason to replace the color printer. We find a black and white printer can sometimes last 10 years or more and most color laser printers are replaced every 3 to 5 years.
A good rule of thumb: if your printer is more than seven years old, you may want to start pricing new units. In this case, even a relatively inexpensive component is not worth the investment.

What repair needs to be done for a "50 needs repair" message on an HP Laserjet IIIP?
ANSWER : I don’t know what you mean by good toner cartridges. They haven’t been built in about 10 years, so if they are new OEMs in the box, they are guaranteed to fail.
