9 times out of 10 my HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M281fdw freezes while Initialising or locks up after a short time when it does start up.
I have followed the standard suggested solution of power cycle many times. Sometimes after being left unplugged for at least a week it will work but then the display locks after a short time and printer shows offline in print manager.
Managed to get it going earlier today and completed a HPPSdr test which updated the firmware, did get the current 'Supply Problem' error but changed cartridges which cured that but after a short while locked up again.
The initialising process seems to stall after only a few seconds on what sounds like a paper feed test attempt.
This has been happening for over 1 year, (I have an inkjet which I revert back to).
Can't find anything online which replicates the problem I'm having.
