I had the same problem...
Check that the main system board is correctly inserted. Try removing it and re-inserting it to make sure all the connections are in place.

The printer's memory probably catastrophically failed if it never makes it past power-on. Or the logic board is toast. So maybe call HP technical support and present them with the idea that the memory or main system board is dead. They will probably refer you to someone who will gladly take your money.

Another option, if the printer is still under warranty you could ship it back to HP and have them fix/replace it.

HP CLJ 4700 empty display, no answer

When the display is light and printer is ready for printing but does not pass pages:
There are still jobs in the memory buffer of the printer.
This could be solved by pushing the oval select-button.

1. Entering the oval select-button also activates the new control panel settings (when they have been changed).
2. Printer control panel settings could have been changed over a network cable: checking the settings is a next step when problems do

HP L1706- screen is blank when I switch on

First if you have a extra monitor try to plug it in and see if it works. If not then check your video card. or get into the computer and try and remove and reseat the memory. Sometimes by just doing that can solve the problems

Blank screen. Remains blank

Power down, remove the battery, remove the power plug. Hold down the power button for at least 30 seconds. Remove and reinstall the memory module(s). Re install the power plug and try to power back up and see if it works. If it does, reinstall the battery ad you're done. If not, get back to me for some more ideas and further diagnosis.
Thanks and have a good day!

4700 photos no longer scrolling on screen saver

you may want to change the time after which the IPAQ turns itself off. If this time is too short, then Dockware may not be activated.
