HP has a bug bounty for its printers

Unfortunately its thru private invite only with bugcrowd.com.  I remember looking at HP systems a few years back and, well this might be a good way to bring in some extra cash. https://www.zdnet.com/article/hp-will-give-you-10000-to-hack-your-printer/

Hacking printers

A nice article that goes over that hacking printers is alive and well.  Most of the tool uses PJL to get into the system.  So if you can turn that off, it would be worth it. https://isc.sans.edu/forums/diary/Multiple+vulnerabilities+discovered+in+popular+printer+models/22023/ https://github.com/RUB-NDS/PRET http://hacking-printers.net/wiki/index.php/Main_Page
