    At first this did not work. Printer was not connected to the computer. When I moved the plug to another power strip, the error warning disappeared and the machine returned to functioning status. Thanks very much.

1st shut the printer off
2nd Disconnect it from the Computer
3rd turn it on

Does the error still occur?

If it starts properly print a configuration page.

If this is possible you have a Printer Driver issue.
Replace the Print Driver.

If it still has the error when the printer is NOT connected to the Computer then you have a firmware issue most likely.

This error is usually caused by either a dirty or failed Eprom dimm. On the lower back of the machine you will see a small flip up door. Open it and remove the memory sticks there and clean the gold contacts with a pencil eraser. Replace them in the correct slots. If that fixes it great, if not you will need to find a replacement firmware dimm.

My hp laserjet 3030 keeps reading 79 error power on power off


79 errors are often fatal. Your only hope is to get it back to READY, then update the firmware before it reverts back to 79 ERROR. The other option is to replace the formatter, but it would be about the same cost to replace the whole machine.
