Error 79 on hp printer?

The cause :-----A 79 error can be the result of a problem with the network print server that services the printer. To resove the problem:--- When troubleshooting a 79 error, first open the Printer folder from the Start menu on the Print server to make sure there are no jobs pending. A 79 error can also indicate a failure of a printer add-on component, such as an MIO card or a RAM module. All add-ons should be removed and then added back to the printer one by one to determine which module may be at fault. This will help.Good luck.

79 error


79:xx Error- general firmware error- look at this fault the same way you look at windows blue screen of death - theres usually noting wrong apart from corrupt data in a print job- disconnect the printer from all network sources cycle the power with no network connection to clear fault then clear all print queues from the workstation (PC) before reconnecting network. also you might want to try a config page print test before reconnecting network..
if unfortunately the printer will not come to ready when the network has been removed, then the formatter is likely to be the cause .

49 server error


49.xx.xy error- General firmware error ( like a blue screen in windows)
a corrupt print file is usually the cause and can be cleared by disconnecting the printer from the network, then cycle the power , allow the machine to come to ready and ask the pritner for a configuration page( just a test to see if the printer is able to respond- if not then replace formatter/firmware chip) when this has finished printing goto the workstation that sent the last files to the printer and clear ALL print queues form the PC then and only after clearing the print queues can you re-connect the network - failing to clear the print queue will cause the printer to re-try printing the corrupt document which will result in 49.xx.xy error being displayed again.

49.XXXX PRINTER ERROR

To continue turn off then on

No error message will be in event log.

A critical firmware error has occurred that caused the processor on the formatter to abort operation. This type of error can be caused by invalid print commands, corrupt data, or invalid operations. In some cases, electrical noise in the cable can corrupt data during transmission to the printer. Other causes include poor quality parallel cables, poor connections, or homegrown applications. On rare
occasions, the formatter is at fault, which is usually indicated by a 79 Service Error.

1. Press CANCEL JOB to clear the print job from the printer memory.
2. Turn the printer off and then back on.
3. Try printing a job from a different software application. If the job prints, go back to
the first application and try printing a different file. If the message appears only with a certain software application or print job, contact the software vendor for assistance.
4. If the message persists with different software applications and print jobs, disconnect all cables to the printer that connect it to the network or PC.
5. Turn the printer off.
6. Remove all memory DIMMs or third-party DIMMs from the printer. (Do not remove the firmware DIMM in slot J1.)
7. Remove all EIO devices from the printer.
8. Turn the printer on.
9. If the error no longer exists, install each DIMM and EIO device one at a time, making sure to turn the printer off and back on as you install each
device.
10. Replace a DIMM or EIO device if you determine that it causes the error.
11. Remember to reconnect all cables that connect the printer to the network or computer.
12. If the error persists, replace the firmware DIMM.
13. Replace the formatter and calibrate the printer. See Calibrate now.
