    Cool Bizhub 227 - Hangs at boot with two pillars/shark fins shown on the display

    Thanks again to everyone who helped me get the Bizhub 423 refurbished for my friend last year. She is very grateful and it's been running like a champ!

    I had such a good time working on that machine that I jumped on the opportunity to pick up a (broken) Bizhub 227 when I had the chance. When booting, this system hangs with the two pillars on the display (see image below). I can hear the ADF move and power supply fan running, but those are the only signs of life. The system had it's hard drive removed before I picked it up, but I think it should still boot beyond these two pillars, shouldn't it?

    In reviewing other posts on this site, see references to a 'recovery tool' or an 'MFP Reset Tool' that might help, but I'm not sure what that might be or where to get it and how to use it. I also see posts that say it is likely the eMMC Board that is faulty, but how would I test that to be sure?

    Before I start going down a rabbit hole of my own making, I thought I would ask the experts for their advice; How would you recommend I begin to troubleshoot this?


    A few reference posts:

    I would try new eMMC.

    Thanks tsbservice. Is there some way to test the eMMC to confirm it is faulty? I see the board has a standard mSATA connector. Might there a PC-based utility available for testing purposes?

    Nothing I'm aware of unfortunately.
