HP P2015 Printers

Well we still have 4 out of 6 working.  One non-working unit needs a second formatter. I know this because the printer goes into an error mode that’s not described in the service manual.  The Jam light (sometime the toner light, too) is on at power up and it the network port doesn’t even bother to light up.  You can press the engine test button and get a page out despite the error lights, though.

There’s been a lot of talk about the problem, around the web.  Try Fix Your Own Printer (dot com) for a long thread describing the complaints and various attempts at self repair. The most promising is trying to reflow the solder on the formatter.  You’ve got nothing else to lose, right?  The formatter runs from 100$ to 150$.  Think of what 10 minutes in the oven could save you.  Does it work?  Eh, sometimes.  The general formula is 400F for 8 to 10 minutes.  I wish I could say this worked for me.  I made two tries, the first try was no help at all the second try turn on both the Jam and Toner light at power up.
