    Thank you for this information. It looks like we have an issue with our formatter since the printer won't boot beyond >>>>loading the firmware.

    My HP 3055 just quit responding to any buttons pushed and says Hewlett-Packard >> >>. I tried calling technical support and the machine would not respond to the * and 5 keys pressed as the machine is turned on. Is it worth getting a board replaced or should I get a new all-in-one?

You have a formatter issue (motherboard) on the printer. Sounds like you took a surge possably through your telephone line.

Here's a couple things to try and re-initialize the machine.

Soft Reset: Press "Menu", then press * and # simultaniously to enter the developer menu section. Press the "> or < until until REINTFFS is displayed on the second line of the display. Press the "Check button". The machine will go through a series of checks and flash different things. About 2 to 2.5 minutes later the machine will return to ready.

If that doesn't fix it, here's the next more aggressive reset but caution as this will reset all your settings and you will have to reset up everything (language, phone numbers, country code etc..) after using.

Super NVRAM Ret:

Turn off machine, Press and hold down * and 5 while turning on machine. Continue hold down throughout the power up sequence. When PERMANENT STORAGE INT is deplayed on the display, release the buttons. When prompted, set the language and telecom region.

To set the language and telecomm region, the machine will prompt for them when they have been erased. Simply use the > or < until its correct for your language and then press the "check" button. Same process for the region. Once both have been set the machine should come to READY.

If neither of the above works, you will need a professional tech to resolve the issue and possably replace the formatter board.

Hope that helps you.
