HP Laserjet Pro MFP M225dn Printer Periodically Hangs Up - SOLVED

HP Recommended
HP Laserjet Pro MFP M225dn Printer
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

For about four years now I notice that my printer periodically hangs up and requires power cycling the printer for it to work again. But recently, about 15 minutes after I had powered up the printer, I looked at the printer display to find the time just as my phone began to ring. About a half an hour later I went to print a document only to find the printer was hung up again. When I looked at the display I noticed that the clock was frozen at the time I had received my last phone call. So I disconnected the phone line from the printer and the printer hasn't hung up since. Apparently there is something wrong with the filter circuitry on the modem board that is suppose to suppress the conducted emissions from the 90V, 20 Hz ring signal on the phone line from reaching the printer computer circuitry. Four years was a long time to wait, but I'm calling this problem solved.
