The printer has started to constantly cycle - once every 5 minutes or so. No other issues. I've resorted to keeping it off, unless I need to print or fax (mainly because of the distracting noise). I've tried leaving it unplugged for up to 24 hours. I've also tried a new cartridge. It is connected to a wireless print server with an ethernet cable and it has an IP address on my home network. It is on a power strip with several other devices that do not have issues - so I don't believe it is power related. It is a couple of months out of warranty, so the HP support site will not let me submit a case.

My 1536dnf is power cycling (initializing) about every 5 minutes. I did track it down and figure out it only does it when the network cable is plugged in. If I disconnect the network cable, it doesn't do it. Plug it it, it initializes after about 5 minutes or so.
My printer is only a couple of weeks old. It seemed to start after the last HP update, which consisted of a firmware update for the printer. Anyone else having this problem.?

I called HP support with my unit, and they sent out a replacement unit. Guess what? It did the same thing! I called back and they escalated the issue up. After several emails and calls, they replaced the unit with another model.
It stinks, and I'm really surprised they cannot fix this problem and figure it out. Can this problem not be fixed with a firmware update? I really hated it, because other than this one flaw, it was a great printer.

I found a solution off of the this board with a Google search. It involved changing a parameter in the printer setup. This was a few months ago. From what I remember, it involved the wake-on-lan function and disabling it. Haven't experienced the problem since then. If I remember correctly, I didn't search on this printer name exactly, but the solution worked for the 1536dnf. Good luck!
