Welcome to Fixya !

That is an iternal communications error. The first thing is to shut the printer and turn back on. If the error is still present the first item would be the firmware chip. I would remove the firmware and memory chips and reseat. Make sure you put the firmware chip back in the same slot. If that does not work, contact hp as they have a service not for firmware chip issues (not necessarily yours) and will replace it free. If not the chip it is either the formatter or the engine control board.
The Chips can be found by sliding the rear plastic panel on the right side of the printer towards the back of the printer You are looking at the formatter cage. Open the metal panel and chips are here

Hplaserjet p2055dn 49err46c081a error how to solve

The error applies to the embedded jetdirect firmware. I do not think they have a separate firmware update for the jetdirect but it may be included in the firmware upgrade for your printer.

Am getting 50.2 fuser error on hplaserjet m2727nf printer

50.2 error is an internal hardware error.
Turn off the power using the switch, and wait at least 30 seconds.
Do not use a surge protector. Plug printer directly into the wall outlet.
Power on. If the error comes back, contact HP.
