The formatter is the brains of the machine and probably your problem. Look for a small hole in the side of the machine and use a paperclip to push button and this will preform an engine test. It will print lines up an down the page even if formatter is bad to rule out other parts.

What does initializing mean


Initializing means that the printer is starting up and getting all functions ready such as fax, print engine, scanner. If your printer is freezing with just initializing on the screen then there is a problem. If you have added any extra memory to the printer remove and try to restart. Most common failure is the formatter itself.

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
