Re: printer failure

It could be your formatter or a jet direct card issue.

Display window has a light but no information

Possible failure of the mother board/ power supply section. You will need to remove and reconnect the lines from the mother board to the display and sections.
If there is no result even after this with the display staying blank then the board can be faulty.

It may be the formatter circuit board.
I had the same issue witha 2420. The problem was intermittent... Turn the printer off and on and the problem MIGHT go away (for a while).
I replaced the formatter pcb and the machine has been running well for days.
Good Luck.

Hplaserjet p3005dn blank display

Is it blank and no back light?

Either way the display might have went dead/bad. These printers are not that old. I would call HP support to have it repaired.

My hplaserjet m1522n printer is just not printing

If the printer is not even initializing it could be a hardware failure.

This is due to a formatter failure.

Try an nvram
Try doing a hard or reset or nvram:
1. Turn the printer off
2. Hold down the down arrow and the cancel button
3. Reboot the printer while holding the buttons and hold until permanent storage is displayed. Let go of the buttons and wait for the ready message on the display.

if this does not work contact hp, if within 2 years from the purchase date ask for a case number to have the printer serviced under a service note.
