    Hi,
    I still have the same problem but I read that I had to update the firmware, that I did (I found the relevant applications on Dell website).
    Unfortunately it didn't work: I ran the firmware update tool through USB but even though the data were sent, the printer never complete the installation and is permanently saying "PLEASE WAIT... USB)
    ==> the printer is now blocked either on stand by (please wait mode) or showing the "016-370 erro - restart".


    What should I do please??!!
    Thanks

The 016-317 on this printer refers to the printer not being able to communicate with the MCU board. This is what you should do. This was pulled from support.dell.com. Which is the same troubleshooting trees as the phone/internet agents use. If this doesn't solve your issue, you will more than likely need to update the firmware of the printer, or replace the board. STEP: Reseat the controller card on the 5100cn-series printer.

To reseat the controller card, perform the following steps:

  1. Make sure that the printer is turned off and unplug all cables including the power cord from the rear of the printer.

Error code 016-370 Restart printer If problem


Error code: 016-370
This is yet another error message asking you to restart the printer. You need to switch off the printer and then connect it via the USB cable. Press the hold and cancel buttons simultaneously. Then power on the printer again. On your LCD display you should typically see a message saying 'ready for download mode'. You will then need to initialize the firmware update process. LCD will change to the writing mode. 10 minutes later you will be prompted to start the printer again.

The firmware is available here:

HP 1000 Laser Jet Printer - error printing


Turn the printer off and then back on. Does it go to the ready state? or does it come up and error? If the error only comes up when asking the printer to print then the printer probably has a worn paper pickup roller. You can take the old roller out and rotate the rubber tyre a little.
