The flash memory has the printer firmware on it. You can't just replace it with a blank memory. I don't know if there are third party sellers.

so contacting hp is the best solution. Do you have any idea what the costs are from any other posting - or another thing to try first?

Last flash I order was about $75. Easy to change yourself if yo have a phillips screw driver. Remove the formatter board and replace the card. It simply pulls out of the slot with no tools after the formatter is removed. Use static precautions when removing the formatter.

Okay but getting through to HP seems impossible who or where should I contact?

I have a local  tech service I use to order parts. Sorry unless you are near Toronto, Ontario I have no idea where you could order parts.
