HP laserjet IIP prints a solid black page. I have replaced the toner cart. and thats not it. Printer was found in a storage room and was told it hasn't worked for months. I opened it up and made sure all connections on the boards are good and pressed all reset buttons.

Did it start when you changed the toner cartridge. It could be the new cartridge.

Open printer,check transfer wire(normally underneath where the cartridge sits), it's probably broken.
The charge wire is usually part of the drum/cartridge but if it is'nt check that as well.
These wires are extremely thin so if they are not broken take care.

It will be a defective DC controller and it won't be worth fixing
