    HP 2055N fails to go ready.. stays at Initilize

    have looked on the HP website for firmware .. doesn't seem to have it listed..

    or maybe it's just my pre-coffee eyes can't find it.

    am heading to customer shortly.. will try reset and engine test.. most likely formattor?

    Had a similar issue. The one I came across would come to a ready state, but, nothing would print. Not even internal stuff. Performed an NVRAM Init. Everything back to normal. Did a firmware update also.

    I've thrown those formatters in the oven to fix various problems. That, and the P2015.

    Yeah, I take them out of the printer, take off any plastic that might melt, preheat the oven to 350, and put it in for about 8-10 minutes. Sometimes, I'll make little molds out of aluminum foil to hold the board up off the surface of the cookie sheet... you know, and put them where the screw holes are. It's worked 4 out of 5 times when dealing with these small formatter board problems.

    HP Formatters and also 615 jet direct cards solder joints are poorly done so by heating them up your fixing the cold joints and bingo good board. I haven't had as much success as theengel but it does work.

    Give me a side of fuser with a dash of toner with that formatter, thank you very much

    425F for 6 minutes is what I've done P2015 boards at. Have also done P3005's and a 4250 at same temp specs. All worked with great results. The P3005 had a stronger smell due to the battery on-board (didn't remove it).

    Only thing left is the ECU. If it's still under warranty, they'll probably just send you a new printer.
