Hi, I think lightning hit my printer. I can no longer find the printer with either the usb connection or the ethernet connection. When the lightning hit it was connected to an single computer via usb. since I have tried both other ways with no luck. I don't know if the same board has both connections on it or 2 different boards.

Without expensive equipment to reset the chip I don't know of anyway to do this. If it is "expired" by date you can try going into the printer setup and back dating the year to "fool" the printer. I understand many people have had success doing this.
The Xerox Phaser must be connected to thenetwork via the ethernet cable or via the USB to a PC before you start it up.
If the printer can't "see" the network or PC via the Ethernet or USBconnections when you switch it on, the menu will display "warming up"continuously and when you try to access the menu, it will "freeze".When this happens, switch the printer off and make sure the Ethernet or USBconnections are connected properly before switching it back on.
This happens most frequently with a bad driver install. You should go to Xerox.com and download the latest version of the device driver. Then reinstall the approrpaite driver and check to see how things go.
You have to remove the rear right panel located on the right rear of the machine. When you remove the panel you will see the following.
3. Power cord connection
4. Power switch
5. Parallel port connection (8400 series only)
6. USB connection
7. Configuration card
8. Ethernet 10/100 Base-T connection.
Hope this helps
I assume no codes are coming up after leaving it on for a long time. Most likely problem is the electronics module. With the price of it you could buy 2 new dry ink phaser printers. But what you are describing sounds like an electronics module issue.
