Question about HP Printers & Copiers
Yesterday my Hp 4650dn laser jet printer started giving me this error message when printing from my mac. If I remove the printer from the computer, and then reinstall it will work for "a" print job, then quit again. It has never done this before, why now? It still works when plugged into the laptop with Vista on it? HELP I am getting a tad frustrated here
Power off printer, disconnect all leads such as USB, network, etc and power on again.
Does it power on to the normal state?
Are there any messages on the control panel or light patterns (eg off, on, flashing etc)?

Take the paper out of the trays and check the trays mechanism, lift the tray by hand and make sure nothing is obstructing the movement or something broken.

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.

Check the way your print Jobs Spool up in your PC. you may have a totally different set up for printing in your new computer that takes two or three extra steps(such as spooling the print job) prior to actually sending it to the printer to be printed. If you have a user manual for your new computer, check the printer set up and see if it is set up to print directly to printer or print to spooling folder then to printer. Also try a different driver if you wish, I know the 2430 can use either PCL5 or PCL6 drivers... I'd start there and see if there is a difference.... the problem isn't your printer obviously its the way your computer is communicating to it. Best of luck to you.
