Re: "Initializing"

We had similar problem.  There is a tiny little black plastic arm where the paper comes out of the top.  If you're facing the screen, it will be towards the bottom left.  I couldn't find it on the parts list, but it's similar to part 118-9754-00 (Multi-purpose tray paper sensor actuator) from the parts list website:  .  We had broken that part when we moved and thought little of it until we got the hanging initialization.  Check to see that it moves freely and is not broken.  It was a pricey part for what it was, so you might look at a salvaged part.  Hope that's the problem as it is an easy repair!  If that doesn't do it, we had a door that didn't make good contact that also caused similar problem.  Good luck!

XEROX Phaser 8560MFP won't go past "initializing?"

Disconnect the data cable between the Electronics Module and the Printhead to see if Power On Self Test (POST) gets further, to the point where it displays a system failure code relating to the Printhead being disconnected. If so, replace defective printhead.

HP 4015 NVRAM & hardrive initialization

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
