Re: hp color laserjet 4700

Evening eavotri, -The first thing to do is pull out the EIO card and all of the added memory. -Restart the printer and listen for the fan to come on and see if there are any changes in the boot process. If it boots then starting with the memory reinsert one of the modules and reboot. Repeat the process till you find the culprit. You may find that after reinserting everything its still working. You may have lucked out and just had an EIO card or memory module that had a bad contact or you may have an intermittent fault that will reappear again. If nothing has changed can you give me more details about what you observed or heard during the boot process: - Does the fan come on shortly after you power on? - What displays during the boot process besides the memory check? -You mentioned the last thing you saw; does that mean the LED went blank? Let us know what you find out and don?t forget to rate the posting.

HP 4700 not printing cyan

If your printer is missing a color it could be caused by (off the top of my head) 3 possibilities.
1. High voltage board
2. laser/scanner assembly for that color
3. DC controller might need a firmware upgrade,
Run the PQ diagnostics, check the cyan color
Run the Cartridge Disable diagnostic. Remove all cartridges and take the black cartridge and insert it where the cyan normally is. If the black prints in the cyan slot, your cyan cartridges are bad. If the black doesn't work then go to #3 above. It won't cost any money to upgrade the firmware. If it still doesn't work call in a printer tech.
At this point you may need a printer tech.

49.00FF service error hp color laserjet 4700n

This error is most often caused by out of date firmware on the printer.
Power off the printer and it restart and it should come to ready. If the error reoccurs, make sure that you have any print jobs in the queue of your computer cleared. If it still does not start without the error, unplug any network or usb cables and restart again. Once the printer is at at ready, use the control panel to go to the information menu and then print the configuration page. The firmware date code will be on the left hand side. Current firmware is 48.180.9.

If the firmware is out of date, see the link posted below to download the firmware update. Chose the easy firmware update as this is the most straight forward way to update the firmware. Once downloaded just double click the file you downloaded and it will run and ask you to chose the printer you want to update. Pick your 4700 from the drop down menu (should be fires option). Then update click update firmware.

You can find the current firmware here
