Re: How to Cold-Reset a Color Laserjet 4700

Thanks for the information on a cold reset.  How can I find out what type of memory is on a flash card and if the card can be written to?  I have several cards that need to be looked at to determine what information may be on them, and what type (volatile or non-volatile) memory is on these cards.  I can provide the numbers off one of the cards if that will help.

 

Thanks.

The flash cards in this model are firmware only they are not used for job storage.

If security was your concern (some people do not want firmware or memory modules sent with printers for disposal) you could erase them/copy them using linux (command required is "dd" with parameters ) but as for the contents you most likley won't be able to read anything legible unless you are at source code level.

 

If you were to erase them with linux then gparted would do the job but it might be handy to keep a copy of the contents by DD to an image file before you did ?

If it ain't simple it ain't worth doing.
(Don't forget Kudos if people have helped)
