50 SERVICE error on my HP laserjet 4MV

I stored this machine away about a year ago it was working fine. I pulled it out the other day to begin using it again and this service error showed up. The printer was just sitting in a closet for a year unused. Toner cartridge fairly new. No previous problems with machine other then it running hot which it had been doing since it was originally purchased. Any help with fixing this problem would be greatly appreciated.

    Why softwear? I hadnt even hooked it up to the computer when this error showed up. This message shows up right after the self test stops.

Have you tried looking on the hp website for software updates ? maybe could try reinstalling the drivers for the machine . I don't know if ink dries up while being stored away for so long you might wanna check into that aswell . hope that helps later .

What is error message 79 service 01BF?

Restart the printer and try to print the same job, if it fails, try printing a different job, could be corrupt file. Can be bad memory or a bad network card if one is installed, remove memory one dimm at a time to see if the error goes away. Otherwise it is the formatter itself.

Will not print.

LaserJet 4V ***If it is intermittent or can be cleared by shutting it off to let it cool. The fuser is running too hot, order rebuilt.***

Notes to remember!!
  • The low voltage power supply is what the takes the 110v ac from the outlet and is for this reason often mistaken as the high voltage power supply. The high voltage power supply HVPS main purpose is to charge the toner cartridge with a much higher dc voltage.
  • Always Remove Power from the printer before working on it!
  • Lamps can break in shipping or if the fuser is dropped.
  • The fusers use floating connectors don't force them in.

HP LaserJet 4MV '50 service' on an HP LaserJet 4MV printer Can it be cleared without resorting to repairs or replacement parts?

You could remove the fuser, turn the machine off, and wait an hour. It may reset the error. However, if the error still persists, it will be a parts replacement of the fuser, low voltage power supply, or the DC controller. 90% it is the fuser. Good luck.

How can I refill HP4MV,

This is something best left to people trained to do so. There are many components that should be examined and tested, as they wear over time and may need replacing. If you are looking to buy new or remanufactured cartridges, or kits to help you refill it yourself, the cartridge model you are looking for is "HP C3900A". Remanufactured cartridges are available in most larger cities, and will save you a bundle compared to Staples or other big box stores.
