I have the exact same HP freeze problem.
I looked at the manual and can't find and locate how to remove the formatter board in question.
I have the M1522NF.
Can you please elaborate?

By doing a google search for "Where is the formatter board located for HP M1522nf" I found a great YouTube that shows everything step by step.

can you please send me a copy of the service manual for the M1522nf?
The link in the posted message does not direct me to the manual.
I would like to try the baking solution.

Four years later this fix seems to continue to work. This printer has been a work horse for us and just now (2015) started giving us the problems mentioned previously.
I found youtube videos of the process where some forgot to remove the memory and failed. (The devil is in the details!) I've seen some suggest unsoldering the battery so I did that simple task and resoldered after the baking.
The printer seems to be functioning properly now. If it goes through the day without a restart we will call it a 100% success. UPDATE: 1 week later the printer is working like new!
Thanks for posting the fix and thank you HP for keeping the thread alive!!!!
