Contact HP Support. They will be able to DOA the printer. If not you can always try and upgrade the firmware of the printer.

Perhaps some system on your network is generating and sending a corrupt print job to the device - see

and

Quickest way to check this would be to determine if the re-initialisation occurs if the printer is disconnected from potential sources; i.e. remove USB and/or network cables.

They don't use it as a printer.  Just copier and scanner.  so no print jobs are being sent.

Just because no user print jobs are being sent doesn't mean that some system is not generating and sending something to the device: e.g. some sort of 'discovery' sequence by a device monitoring application.
