When attempting to troubleshoot my Laserjet (5L).  I was told to "power cycle" the printer.  What does that encompass?

When you power cycle the printer you force  it to re-initialize. There are some errors condictions that it's necessary to reinitialize the printer in order to clear them. But it's also possible that the error persists. Then you should lookup in the user manual to understand the panel  lights  of the printer . Ok?!

What error are you trying to clear? I have many HP service  manuals. I can provide more info if you provide the error. WE 50 Hps in the office I work in. I service them all from deskjets, 2p, 4l, IIId, 3si,4si, 5si,5, 8100.

A HP Laserjet 5 L is always connected to power and returns to sleep mode after a while. It then wakes up when it is ordered to print something. If an internal error persists in the printer you can't reboot the printer any other way, than physically unplugging the power to the printer and plugging it in again.
(With a 50 error on a Laserjet 3, the manual say it should be without power for 30 minutes)
