What happens when you try to print?
1. When you try to print do you see the printer icon on the taskbar? (lower right)
2. Do you see the printer in your printers folder?(start/settings/control panel/ printers) Might need installed
3. Is the printer your default printer? (right click on the printer in the above area and select "set as default printer")
4. Is it plugged in, turned on and plugged into your computer?
5. Has the software been installed or recently updated?
Let me know if this helps

How to solve error 4900ff on hp 4015 printer


Thank you for contacting FixYa with your printer inquiry.



The LJ4015 Series printers are the latest upgrade of HP's most reliable LJ4000 series printer. . 49.xx errors are usually firmware, formatter, or sometimes print-job related.



The first step in troubleshooting this error is to isolate the printer from any computer source - disconnect from any I/O ports, Network/USB etc... Power cycle the printer. Does the error still report? If NO then an application may be causing the error, try to isolate the file causing the problem. Clear any pending print jobs. If YES then Firmware/Formatter most are the problem. The newest firmware is version 04.046.2A released in early September.


Critical Firmware Error.

Causes are invalid print commands, corrupt data, invalid operations or even a bad formatter.Power cycle the printer. Press STOP to clear the print job from memory.

Power cycle again. Try printing something from a different software program. If it works, print the job that failed before. If it still fails, repeat the power cycling again and then print something using the failing program but a different file. If it works the file that failed before is corrupt.

If it fails no matter what you print, your printer has a hardware problem and would suggest going to HP for warranty. Try updating the firmware.

Formatter issue. I would attempt a cold reset if that doesn't resolve it then you are going to have to replace the formatter.



How to cold reset a P4015

Turn the machine off (Remove the Jet Direct Card - Retains IP Address)

  1. Turn the Machine on.
  2. Press and Hold The OK button until the memory stops counting and all 3 lights are lit up.
  3. Arrow up to cold reset then hit OK to start the reset.

If the machine still comes back to the 49 error after the reset the formatter will need to be replaced. Formatter Part Number - CB438-67901 for HP LaserJet P4015x (HP CB511A)

Hope this helps. Please keep us updated and remember to rate this answer.

Printer wont print


Just a suggestion, if you had another printer connected before this one - or the default printer is still set as default - when you click, ' Print' you'll need to select your HP 1315 as the printer you want to use to print your document.

Wont detect


1. Make sure that you removed the tape covering the metal contacts on the print cartridges.

2. Clean those contacts with a cotton swab and distilled, filtered or bottled water. Tap water may damage. Do not touch with curious fingers. Allow to dry.

3. Reinsert, Reset printer.

New Hp Officejet 5610 All-in-one - Printing?


You may have a couple of problems. First, you say you have more than one icon in your Printers dialog box for 5600 series printers. My guess is that you installed two different drivers, one for the 5600 and one for the 5610.

Try deleting the 5600 printer icon and making the 5610 the default printer. Run the test print again to verify it works, then open a Word document and see if you can print that.

This brings me to the second issue; what exactly are you trying to print? The issue in this case, may not be the printer but an issue with the document. Some documents have a security feature that prevents printing. Try different documents (Word, Excel, etc...) and see if the problem is across the board. Post the results here.

Thanks.
