I need to replace the NIC on a HP LaserJet 550DN, I know what do do at my server/network end but not to sure what to do on the printer. I pull out the old one, power up printer while holding down the Go button to reset print. I then shutdown printer and install new NIC (with RJ45 not connected). Whne I power up all I get is a HP INVENT logo. Any suggestions?

What happens when you power up the printer with the NIC 'not' installed?

What happens when you put the old NIC back in?

Is the replacement NIC new or from another printer? If it's from another printer, did the new NIC work in the old printer?

What are the model NIC's for both? Are they both the exact same model?

Thanks,
I figured it out. I held down the Menu button while powering up, selected Initulize disk. After that it went into Ready mode and NIC worked out fine. It was a new NIC.
