SOURCE: Printer HP Laser Jet 7400
A critical firmware error has occurred that caused the processor on the formatter to abort the operation.
This type of error can be caused by invalid print commands, corrupt data, or invalid operations.
In some instances, electrical noise in the cable can corrupt data during transmission to the printer.
Other causes include poor quality parallel cables, poor connections, or specific software programs.
99 % of time it is a corrupt file or poor connection, I have also known it to be the firmware, dimm or formatter board on rare occasions.
Recommend check hp web for any firmware updates, check connections and that driver is installed impecablly and use known good files to test.

SOURCE: getting a system error 1180
System Error 1180: Capping Motor Error
Capping Motor over current is detected.
Corrective Action: Try the following:
When the ambient temperature is very low, the Pump Motor Tube becomes hard and the load on the Capping Motor is increased. Make sure that the Printer is in an environment where the temperature is not below -10oC or higher than +85oC.
The Capping Station has a Torque Limiter for up and down operation so that the Capping Station does not experience any over current. Apply grease on the shaft of the Capping Station Gear so that it helps with rotation.
Make sure that the Capping Station cables are connected correctly and are not damaged
If the Capping Motor cannot be rotated, replace the Capping Station
Replace the Main PCA if nothing above corrects your problem

The problem is with the service station. This is the unit that the carrier "Parks itself" over when it is not printing. It cleans the print heads and collects excess ink. It also fills up with ink. and the ink dries in a big blob.
If the motor is good, if it was working it likely is, The SS probrably got jammed in the move.
If you can move the carrier to the left with power off do so.
If not turn machine on and while carrier is to the left unplug the machine.
You need the carrier to the left to expose the SS.
Open the cover as if you were changing printheads.
Look straight down. your looking at the service station.
A shaft with wipers and a gear at one end should turn. A little resistance but jam if alot of ink is caked in the bottom of the unit.
You can clean some of this in from the top and see if the SS frees up as a test at least.
The service station can be removed if required. You need to remove the right cover from the machine.
There are three screws that you should see looking down at the SS from the top They have numbers next to them I beleive, holding the SS in. Everything that moves should move freely.
Hope this Helps Good Luck

The problem is usually caused by printing a PDF file with fonts/page size/ page formating errors which will cause the printer to display the 49.3048 error. The only way to use the printer is to POR or recycle the power and delete the print job from the server or spooling device and cancel it on the printer before the offending command is issued to the printer again. You can try updating the firmware to the latest version 46.140.5 from the HP website. MIke L.
