Will Not Power on at all
I have an HP Laserjet IIIP and it was sitting in storage for many years and I pulled it out and plugged it in and flipped the power switch and it said "Needs Service" then it turned off on it's own very quickly when I tried to turn it back on nothing happened no lights nothing on the LCD Display no fan Noises nothing does anyone have any ideas what might be the problem Also the fuser seems fine because I already checked it out.
Could either be a bad power supply or the DC controller. Here is the down side. The toner cartridge went bad from all those years. The fuser pressure roller will have a flat spot from not turning for all those years. Cartridges haven't been made in over 10 years and replacements are hard to find and remanufactured ones are all questionable. I would recommend scrapping it.
