Googling around I found two different articles that describe the same issue and may help, and both involve trying to fix the software rather than replacing hardware. The first is from a HP support board, and they recommend resetting the printer:

to reset the printer:
-turn off the unit
-press and old the down arrow + cancel button
-keep holding, dont let go the buttons and turn on the device
-wait till you see "permanent storage", let go the buttons
-should go back to ready

if that does not help: try to run a Firmware update.

The second post is from FixYourOwnPrinter.com with firmware update instructions, and I added links to the driver and firmware downloads in the steps.

When we see "Firmware Corrupt Ready 2 Download" we should do as follows:

  • TURN PRINTER'S POWER OFF (USB should stay connected)
  • Delete installed driver (if exists)
  • Manually install driver for your printer (When choosing port, use one of "Virtual Printer Ports for USB" which is your printer connected to)
  • Run firmware update program from HP Support web page (PRINTER IS OFF)
  • In firmware update program's window choose your printer (manually installed) and press "Send Firmware" button
  • Wait for firmware to be completely sent to your printer's task window
  • First you will see "Firmware Corrupt Ready 2 Download" message. If there is no such message, turn off and on again until it shows. Then message will change to "Downloading...", "Erasing..." and "Programming..."
  • When all this operations end, printer will ask you to turn it off and on.
That's all. No need to contact HP Support or buy any parts.

P.S. While "Downloading...", "Erasing..." or "Programming...", printer may hang. It's not fatal. Just repeat all operations again. To prevent hangs use quality USB cable when updating firmware.

P.P.S. Sorry for bad english. I'm russian...

Best of luck!
