    Hi, I was given a hp5000 printer which is not working, and I would like to get it running, when I start the printer the screen displays "Spinning up disk...OK" then "Loading...firmwear.fmw" then "Initializing Please wait." see photo. Tt does not move from this screen, pressing any buttons on the panel has no effect, even the power button has no effect.
    what my next step, I have checked the ram and appers to be ok.
    When I was given this printer the guy told me that there is some sensor giving trouble but he did not know any more.

    Thank you

    If it won't complete initialization, chances are the issue is the hard drive, that it needs to be replaced. thx Wideimagesolutions.

    There are manuals for it online. And there are parts machines around.

    wow I had a couple of these... a long time ago.
    You'll probably need to replace the ink system.
    Can you still get heads?

    a set of printheads and ink is worth more than the printer..
