HP color LaserJet 2600n stucked on Initialzing

My HP color LaserJet 2600n has been stuck on Initializing for hours. I've tried to reset it to factory settings, turning it off and on, disconnecting it, re-installing the drivers, and still read Initializing.

Any suggestions?

    I replaced the roller on my fuser at one point, but it didn't quite fix the ghosting issue I had, so I ordered a whole new fuser. Once I put in the new fuser, it's not stuck on initializing. I hope I didn't know somethign loose or break something in the process. I have experience with putting in the fuser, so I'm not new.

    I also tried reverting back to the original fuser, but no luck still. Both LEDs on the front panel blink and it says "Initializing" constantly.

Well we can check and see if the printer is able to run an engine test. This is how you can run this test;

  1. Turn the printer around so the back of the machine is facing you.
  2. Remove the Engine etest button acess door. This is located in the bottom center of the back.
  3. Push the botton once while the printer is on. The printer should print a page with colored horizontal lines.
If the printer is able to print this page there is a very good indication the problem revolves around the PCA formatter board.
The Firmware might be outdated and causing this problem. Worst case scenario the board might be faulty, in that case your better off buying a new machine, since the cost to replace the board will be higher than that to replace this machine.

Is there an inexpensive manual avail for TDC Vivid Mainliner 300 slide proj.?


I see manuals on eBay for around $14 but nothing cheap or free. It's unfortunately one of those that is just rare enough that nobody wants to cut anything lose. Sorry... You might try a Google search if you are having a specific problem - sometimes you can find a support or community forum that has a thread about the issue.

Good luck

The circumference of a circle is 47.1 feet. What is the diameter of the circle?


The circumference of a circle is C=2 * pi * r or C= pi * d.

What do we know? C=47.1 and pi.

What are we trying to calculate? d

Put what we know in the equation and solve for d.

47.1 = pi * d

To isolate d, we have to divide both sides by pi.

47.1
------ = d
pi

I get 14.99' or approximately 15' as the diameter.

Good luck,
Paul

How does the bulb look? Is it bright or kind of dim. The bulb warming error is designed to halt use of the machine until the scanner bulb reaches the correct output level. As these are basically a flourescent tube, they will dim over time and at a certain point they will not generate enough light to enable proper scanning. If the bulb is dim, it will require replacement.
