There's a tab on the right side, inside the front door that's supposed to be there to press in the door switch to tell the printer that it's closed. If it is not there, then this can cause your issue.

HP 4015 NVRAM & hardrive initialization

Solution
A hard disk initialization will erase and reformat the printer's hard disk. Perform hard disk initialization only if an error code displays on the control panel indicating a disk error. Always try initializing the hard disk before replacing it.

1. Turn the printer on. 
2. As the printer performs its power-on sequence, press and hold the Menu button until all three lights on the control panel are lit. 
3. Press the back arrow . The message INITIALIZE DISK displays on the control panel. 
4. Press OK. The printer initializes the hard disk and continues the power-on sequence.


CAUTION: Initializing NVRAM resets the serial number, the model number, the event log, the page counts, and the EIO card. Use the SERVICE menu to restore the serial number and page counts. You also need to reconfigure any computers that print to this printer to recognize the printer. Initialize NVRAM only when absolutely necessary. In most situations, use a cold reset to return printer to factory defaults but still retain the needed values in the SERVICE menu. 

 NVRAM initialization
Before initializing NVRAM, print a configuration page and a supplies status page to gather the service menu values

1. Turn the printer on and watch the control panel display. 
2. When the display shows the memory count, press and hold the down arrow until all three lights on the control panel are lit
3. Press the up arrow . 
4. Press Menu . The message SKIP DISK LOAD displays on the control panel. 
5. Press the up arrow until NVRAM INIT is highlighted, and then press OK. The printer initializes NVRAM and then continues its power-on sequence.

daca aceasta procedura nu reuseste, atunci va trebui sa inlocuiesti formatter-ul. daca nu exista hard disk

Good luck

What is the green light that blinks on the left side of the printer just below the usb port?


Heartbeat LED
The heartbeat LED indicates that the formatter is functioning correctly. while the printer is initializing after you turn it on, the LED blinks rapidly, and then turns off. When the printer has finished the
initialization sequence, the heartbeat LED pulses on and off.
