Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

Every time that I try to print, the service error 5700 comes up. It tells me to check printer. I have to troubleshoot until it works again. I reset it than shut off and restart or occasionally restart the whole computer. Any suggestions?

    Thank you very much.  I have tried that in the past and it works most of the time but unfortunately not all of the time.  Take care.

It could be a loose cable or loose connection. Try to fix all connections. Make sure all pins are firmly inserted.

Spooling error


What make and model printer ?
There are a variety of reasons why a printer may feed a blank page through. This is, in some cases, an error. In other cases though it is a mistake in the page count or a simple matter of the printer trying to maintain itself.
Maintenance If a user has just loaded new paper into the printer or if an error message has recently been cleared the printer may run a blank page through.
Usually this is to make sure that the print path is now clear and that the next sheet it positioned correctly for printing.
Page Count
When a document is edited there is sometimes a blank sheet left at the end of the document. So, for example, if a 10 page document is edited down to nine pages, the computer and printer still sometimes read it as a 10-page document when a user hits the print key.
Page Separator
In some cases where a large number of documents are being printed, users may set a blank page separator.
This puts a blank page between copies of a document to show where one ends and the next begins.
A quick look at the printer's settings or control panel will tell you if this option has been turned on.
Fix a Printer Spool Error
When you send a job to your local or network printer, the print spooler is what keeps track of that job's location in the queue.
If the print spooler is not running, your job will not be able to reach the printer, so it is important to know how to resolve print spooler errors when they occur.

Click on the "Start" button and choose "Control Panel" from the menu.
Double-click the "Printers and Faxes" icon and locate your printer.
Double-click on the printer to get the list of jobs in the queue.
If you see any jobs in an error status, right-click on those jobs and choose "Cancel" from the menu.

Close the "Printers and Faxes" window and double-click on the "Administrative Tools" icon. Choose "Services" from the menu.
Scroll through the list until you see "Print Spooler," then right-click and choose "Start" from the drop-down list.
This restarts your print spooler and allow your jobs to print.
Right-click on "Print Spooler" again and choose "Properties" from the menu.
Go to the "Startup" option and set it to "Automatic."
This ensures that the print spooler starts each time your computer does.

HP4550 - 49.00FF service error


Turn off the RAM disk on the printer.

Follow these steps:

Troubleshooting steps

1.
Verify that the formatter light is blinking or steady. If the formatter is blinking, it is functioning properly and probably does not need to be replaced. If the formatter light is not blinking, proceed to Step 2.
2.
Turn off the printer and unplug the power cord.
3.
Remove the HP Jetdirect card, third-party device, hard disk, parallel cable, or IFR cable from the formatter if one is installed.
4.
If the error continues with accessories removed from the formatter, perform a cold reset on the printer. Ensure the HP Jetdirect card is not in the printer during a cold reset or the card settings will be changed back to default settings. To perform a cold reset, do the following:
1.
Turn on the printer.
2.
Watch the control panel.
3.
When the memory starts counting, press and hold the green (Select ) button.
4.
Continue holding the green check button until the Ready, Data, and Attention lights flash once, and then stay on steady.
5.
Release the check button when the Ready, Data, and Attention light are on steady.
The control panel will display SELECT LANGUAGE .
6.
Press (Down Arrow ) button once. The control panel will display COLD RESET
7.
Press (Select ). The printer will perform a cold reset and then continue its power-on sequence.
5.
If the printer comes up to ready, print a Configuration page. If a 49 error occurs from printing internal pages, continue on to the next step.
6.
Turn the printer off and unplug the power cord.
7.
Remove the eight screws around the formatter.
8.
Remove the formatter. See Figure 1.
9.
Reseat the firmware and memory modules on the formatter. Check for any DIMMs that are non-HP and remove them. Non-HP DIMMs are not supported by HP and may cause this error. Replace with HP DIMMs, if necessary.
10.
Reseat the daughter (interconnect) board. The daughter board is connected to the formatter behind EIO slot #1. To release the daughter board, push in the black retaining tab underneath the formatter then lift up the one side of the daughter board.
11.
Reseat the daughter board.

12.
Install the formatter.
13.
Turn the printer on again.
14.
If it comes up to READY , print a configuration page. If a 49 error does not appear from printing internal pages, or at power up, continue to the next step.

15
Install the HP Jetdirect card and hard disk before installing the formatter. Verify that each device is properly seated.
16
Test any EIO devices, by turning off the printer, installing each device separately, and printing a Configuration page. Repeat for each EIO device.
17
If the 49 error occurs with any EIO device installed, replace that EIO device.

My printer model 5700 desk jet is squeaking


Often times dust or paper debris becomes lodged around the printer feed wheels. Use a can of compressed air to throughly blow out all areas accessable. If the printer is older it is usually cheaper to replace it than trying to repair.

Can't reinstall printer- ''print spooler is not working''


If you have the windows disk for it , Save everything important to disks.  Put WIndows  disk into machine and tell it to install. It will find you version and ask if you wish to repair it, Say yes.   If you have Xp pro just "Restore" computer to the date before the problem started. If you have neither one. Save you work and then reinstall everything using your backup disks.

Clear any paper or carriage path obstructions
With the product turned on, open the print cartridge access door. The print carriage might try to move into the access area. If so, allow it to move to that position.
Without turning off the product, unplug the power cord from the back of the product. Unplug the power cord from the power source. The power cord must be unplugged to allow the parts to be moved by hand and to reset the paper feed mechanism, without the risk of an electrical shock.
Looking in through either the print cartridge access door or the output paper tray, make sure the print cartridges are locked into the carriage and have not come loose. Also, make sure that there are no obstructions under or around the carriage to block it from moving.
Make sure the print carriage can move freely across the width of the product by gently pushing the carriage to the left and then to the right. Clear any obstructions found. You may have to reach through the output paper tray to access the print carriage.
Close the print cartridge access door and plug the power cord back to the back of the product. Plug the power cord into the power source.
Press the On button to turn on the product.
Plug the product directly into a wall outlet Follow these steps to make sure that the product is correctly connected to a suitable power source.
Remove the power cord from any power strips or surge suppressors, and plug it directly into a grounded wall outlet.
Perform a partial reset A partial reset will return user settings to factory defaults. On some models, language and country/region settings are also reset. Perform a partial reset of the product by following the instructions below.
Unplug the power cord from the unit.
Reconnect the power cord into the unit.
When the lights begin to flash, press and hold the On/Resume buttons.
Try the print job again to see if this step resolved the issue.
If the issue is resolved , you do not need to continue with the rest of the instructions on this page.
If the issue is not resolved , continue to the next step.
Remove and re-install the print cartridges Improper placement or installation of the product's print cartridges can cause the product to indicate a carriage stall error condition. Ensure correct installation of the print cartridges by following the instructions below.
With the printer plugged in and turned on, open the cartridge access door (see the illustration). After a moment, the print carriage should come to the center. The print cartridge carriage is the plastic part that holds the print cartridges. When the carriage is at the center of the access area, unplug the printer.
Remove the cartridges from the carriage and check them for damage. Check for obstructions under and around the carriage. Replace any damaged cartridges.
Reinstall the print cartridges.
Try the print job again to see if this step resolved the issue.
Service the printer If you have completed all the steps listed above and are still experiencing a problem, service the product.

When going to print to a laserjet 4000pclx printer I get an error code 7900FE. What is it and how do I fix. it.


If you have cleared the print queue so there are no outstanding 'faulty' files; it's worth knowing that the 79.00 error can also be caused by poorly fitting or incompatible memory cards.

To clear the printer queue on PC

click on start
click on run
type: services.msc
scroll down to print spooler
right click on this service then press restart
exit out and try again other wise continue below..

Can you make sure they are firmly mounted?

Remove all communication cables so that only the power cable is connected.

Remove the Jetdirect card, if installed.

Remove any other accessories, such as the envelope feeder.

Hold down the green "GO" button.

Turn the printer on.

When the words "Cold Reset" appear in the display, release the green "GO" button.

When "Offline" appears in the display, press the green "GO" button. "Ready" should appear in the display.



NOTE: If the words "Cold Reset" do not appear in the display, hold the "GO" button down until you hear the motors rotate. The words "Restoring Factory Settings" will appear in the display if the "Cold Reset" was performed successfully.

Turn the printer off once the printer displays the “Ready” message.

Reinstall each of the above-mentioned components, one at a time, turning the printer on and off again each time a component is installed.

Continue installing and power-cycling until all accessories are installed and the printer is at a “Ready” state.

If it is determined that one of the components is responsible for the 79.00FE error, refer to next.

If the printer will not return to a “Ready” state after removing all of the components and performing the cold reset, try a different power source by moving the printer to a different location and plugging the power cord directly into the wall.

If the printer continues to display the 79.00FE error, upgrade the firmware. A firmware DIMM can be obtained from the HP Parts Store at http://www.hp.com/buy/parts . Version 6.36 Firmware DIMM is Part Number C4251-67905; however, part numbers are subject to change without notice.

If the printer still continues to display the error, contact HP for further assistance.
