HP 4100mfp new hard disk problem


My hp 4100 mfp hard disk started acting flakey so I got a new one. (card and all)

Slide it in, power up and get Hard disk not found error message.

The configuration page shows
disk storage 9462mb capacity

If I put the old one back in it starts up fine. but eventually will give me same old hd problems.

Is there some way to initialize the drive?
Tell The printer it is there?


found solution: PROBLEM SOLVED

HP LaserJet 4100 MFP/9000 MFP series printers
Initializing the hard drive for the HP LaserJet 4100 MFP and 9000 MFP series printers:

CAUTION: For printers in this series with MFP copy modules, initializing the hard drive will delete MFP firmware that is stored on the hard drive.

Turn off the printer.
Power the printer on while holding down the START button on the control panel until all three LEDs cycle on and off and then back on again.

Press the Back Button.

The following will be shown on the display:


Press the Select Button.

The printer will begin initializing the disk (this may take a moment) and then the display will display the hp event logo and then eventually come to a READY state.
