The actual error says that the hard drive is bad. I bet that you don't have a hard drive on your printer, so read on...

From the manual

NVRAM initialization
CAUTION Initializing the NVRAM resets the serial number, the event log, the page counts, and
the EIO card (initializing the NVRAM resets SERVICEmenu values to factory defaults). Use the
service menu to restore the serial number and page counts. Also reconfigure any computers that
print to this device so that the computers can recognize the device. Initialize the NVRAM only
when absolutely necessary. In most situations, use a cold reset rather than a NVRAM initialization
to reset device settings (this will retain the values in the SERVICEmenu).
NOTE Before performing a NVRAM initialization, print a menu map and a configuration page
. Use the information on the configuration page to reset
any customer-set device configuration values that the NVRAM initialization procedure changes.
Take special note of the total page count, maintenance count, and the serial number.
1. Remove any installed accessories.
2. Turn the device off.
3. Turn the device on. When the memory count begins, press and hold the button. Continue
holding down the button until all three device control-panel lights flash once and then remain
on. This might take up to 10 seconds.
4. Press the button.
5. Press the Menubutton. The display should show SKIP DISK LOAD.
6. Press the button until NVRAM INITis highlighted.
7. Press . The device initializes NVRAM and then continues the power-on sequ

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
