This error is related to the firmware for the printer. You can get the firmware update utility from the hp website. The following is the site for XP. http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=406808&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=409994&swLang=8&taskId=135&swEnvOID=228

HP laserjet p3005d frozen on "download file now send rfu upgrade"


Need further information as there are several ways this can go, some of which are fairly complicated. Does the screen state Download firmware over USB? or Resend over parallel port?

Post the exact message and I will see if I can find you the tech document that shows the steps needed, depending on what the screen says.

What can I do to my printer is sending me this message "Downld file now inflate failure Resend RFU over parallel port"


For whatever reason your printer is trying to do a firmware upgrade and it isn't working. If this came out of the blue, you may have to replace the formatter. RFU = remote firmware upgrade. If you caused the problem while trying to upgrade the firmware, try it again

Hp 5550 color laser printer display "downld rfu error over parallel port" how can i get a solution? and what is the cause? thanks


RFU = remote firmware upgrade.
Appears like someone tried to upgrade the firmware.
While the firmware was being downloaded, something interrupted the process. For example somebody tried to use the printer, you had a power problem, your internet went down etc, etc.
You are going to have to try the firmware upgrade again.
If you can't get passed the RFU error, you will probably have to get the formatter replaced.

Rfu file download


You need to resend the firmware. If you have a parallel port on your printer you can do it from there, just follow the instructions that come with the RFU download.

If you only have network and USB then you will need to follow the instructions that I wrote for solving this problem on another model of HP.

You can find that tip here
