When adding a 10 gig Hard Disk the printer will stop at Boot sequence 4/6 when powering up the printer.  Works fine without the Hard DIsk in the printer.  Stops at 4/6 when trying to Initialize the new disk. Have upgraded firmware to the latest available. Have tried 3 Hard Disk drives. All have same result. Is the Formatter causing this problem?
Thanks,  The Shadow

Are these standard PC drives or did you get them from HP specifically for the printer? Printer drives often use non-standard formats. The standard drive for the P3005 is the J7989G, which is 40 GB.

You can try re-initialising the disk, as follows:

1. Turn the printer off.
2. Turn the printer on. When the memory count begins, press and hold the Menu button. Continue holding down the Menu button until all three device control-panel lights flash once and then remain on. This might take up to 10 seconds.
3. Press the "return" button. The display should show INITIALIZE DISK.
4. Press "tick". The device initialises the hard disk and continues the power-on sequence.

The drives are HP part number J6054B - 10 gig drive for this model of printer.
Have tried the initialization three times with three different Hard drives - with all of them the printer will stop booting at 4/6 when the Initialization procedure has been started.
What is boot sequence 4/6 telling us? Any ideas?

According to this site, it's caused by a faulty Toshiba chip on the formatter board. But then, the service doc they refer to does not list your problem...

I saw the document - but it really doesn't say it was for hang ups during Disk Initiakization.
Any other input would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks - The Shadow

Looking up part # J7989G doesn't come up in Partsurfer.
Using J6054B comes up as J6054-69051 a 40 gig Hard Drive.
Any other suggestions?  Thanks - The Shadow

Well, the specs do say the P300d disk is 40 GB. And the link I gave for the J7989G says it's for a P3005. On the other hand, I have not found any site that says the J6054B is suitable for the P3005. Superwarehouse.com has a list of compatible printers. They are all older printers, the P3005 is not among them.

You can try calling HP to see if they can give any other suggestions.

Hello,
I checked with HP Tech Support - they said the correct part number for the Disk Dirve for an HP LJ  P3005X is 5851-3833. This is a 40 gig drive kit that comes with plastic side rails. The 10 gig drive is no longer available.
Thanks for your help!
