This error is described as "Yellow image drum motor startup error".
There appear to be several answers to this online.
1. http://www.laserprinterhelp.net/article/AA-03318/0/59.53.html
2. https://printcopy.info/?l=en&mod=erc&brand=HP&model=Color%20LaserJet%20CP4525&code=59.53. That seems a good one!
3. https://www.fixyourownprinter.com/posts/39975
and so on.
There appear to be some diagnostic routines, or you could try reconnecting the motor for this drum. Or at least check whether there's anything visible gumming-up that area of the printer.
More generally, I just did a Google search for "LASERJET 4700 SERIES PRINTER error code 59.53" and searched for something simple or clear. You might get more information that way.

I had the exact same problem so I called HP support.The instructions were- remove power cord from lap top if power cord is connected, then remove battery, connect power cord to lap top then turn on lap top by holding power button down for 30 seconds. It booted up, no problem. The proceedure is to remove static electricity.

Step 1:
disconnect all external devices including battery & AC adapter
Press and hold the power button for 10 seconds to discharge any or all static from the PC.
Step 2:
Connect back the battery & AC adapter
press the windows key + B and at the same time press the power button.
This should clear the BIOS (Incase of BIOS issues or interrupted updates)

More details, what kind of document are you printing, what format, what driver, what software are you printing from. If you are printing full page color photographs those can take a long time to print. Make sure all updates for software and firmware of printer is up to date as well.

To better determine what is causing it to reboot, first ensure your computer isn't configured to restart on a failure. From windows explorer, you can right-click on "This PC" or "My computer" and select "Properties". From there, there should be an "Advanced" tab, with a section titled "Startup and Recovery". Click on the "Settings" button in that section, to bring up the "Startup and Recovery" settings. There is a "System Failure" section, with an item "Automatically restart". Uncheck that, and click "Ok". The next time you have a failure, you should get a "Blue screen of *****", that has error information. You can google the error code to figure out what is failing. If you still don't see a blue screen of ***** when it fails, it implies an overheating issue. Look for tools to monitor CPU/GPU temperature, like "Speccy", and you can see if either is running too hot. Hope that helps.

there is no support for 21 year old OS, 98
is this a joke>?
eject the CD, and it will not spin.
no PC stated at all just Pavilion notebook.
and the HDD is dead or the OS is corrupted, just like all 21 year old notebooks are.
the service tag on the bottom clearly shows what model PC this is.
called the HP service tag. see all those numbers/
bingo what it really is, is there.

The cartridge for that colour could be empty. There is usually a way to check the ink levels either on the printer display or through the printer settings on the computer it is connected to.

It may be your ink you need to renew
