Re: Laser Jet Pro MFP M177fw: cooling down mode

It is a brand new product and the customer service persoannel at HP just told me( I called since I received a private email to call CS) . that it is my problem.  


It is my problem.  CS told me that I have to pay for the cooling down system to be dismissed or the printer to work.  I asked the CS agent that even if this is right out of the box i have to pay.  the agent told me it is my problem.  


Really?  When the product is piece of junk, and I havent to stumble upon it and purchased,  it is my problem?

Re: Laser Jet Pro MFP M177fw: cooling down mode



Thanks for reaching out to us on HP Support Forums. Smiley Happy I came across your post and would like to help.


I understand that you have an HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M177fw printer. I read that the printer is cooling down every 3-4 pages. Not worry, I'll do my best to help you. 


To provide an accurate resolution, I need a few more details: 

  • Is the printer placed in a well-ventilated area?

Meanwhile, I recommend you to perform the following steps to isolate the issue and arrive at a fix: 

  • Disconnect the power cable from the printer while the printer is still ON.
  • Disconnect any other cables if connected the printer.
  • Press and hold the printer’s power button for 15 seconds.
  • The printer should be directly connected to the wall outlet and not to a surge protector. Reconnect the power cable to print and the printer should power ON by itself. If the printer doesn’t power ON then please manually power it ON.

Please perform a firmware update on the printer via this link


I hope this information helps. However, if the issue persists then you may reset the printer to its original settings. I have sent you a private message with the reset steps.


I sincerely hope this fixes the issue. Let me know. All the best! Smiley Happy
