Error SC899

Here is the answer from the Ricoh Service Manual...
An SC899 occurs if the MFP is accessed from WIM (Web Image Monitor) after receiving an IP-FAX.
Because a firmware bug in the Network Support firmware is causing this symptom.
Call a Ricoh tech and have them update the Network Support firmware to ver.10.55 or later.

What kind of error is 49.0665

This is a firmware error, that may be caused by corrupt printjobs or network issues. Try to see if you can narrow down the problem to a specific application and also check the URL below for any firmware updates. The problem can also be caused by faulty firmware dimms, memory dimms, or a faulty formatter board, but the message normally persist when this is the case.

Go to htpp://
support/LJ4200 or htpp://
LJ4300. Select Download
Drivers and Software. Check
for the latest firmware image
version at the bottom of the
page. If this firmware image
is newer than the one
installed on your printer and
your printer can receive a
firmware update, download
the newer firmware upgrade.
Not all HP LaseJet 4200/
4300 printers can receive
firmware upgrades.

HP LaserJet 2840 quit working when we were installing firmware update and power to building went off for a few seconds.

firmware corruption issue you will need to remove that printer from computer screen then reinstall it

then do firmware installation pre upgrade to stabilize(use cd or download of older version of firmware

once that's done then try the update again which won't work if old firmware is corrupted

System error e225

Hello 3G,

To resolve the issue Error e225,

Turn the main power switch off and then back on-ICMF 4000 series/D400 Series


Update the firmware :

There is a risk that the MF4150 will not operate if power interruption occurs
during the firmware update. Please make sure MF4150 is connected to
reliable AC power source.

1. Save the downloaded file "MF4150_FirmwareUpdateTool_V0xx.exe on local drive. (i.e. desktop)
Computer Requirements for update
- Microsoft Windows 2000 or XP (32bit)
- Equipped with a USB port (either 1.1 or 2.0)
- Free disk space: 100 MB or more
2. Make sure that Processing/Data indicator (Green LED) on the MF4150's operation panel is turned off.
If the light is lit or blinking, wait until all the jobs are finished (i.e., COPY, PRINT, and SCAN), and that the Processing/Data indicator is turned off.
3. Make sure that Error indicator (Red LED) on the operation panel is turned off. If Processing/Data indicator (Green LED) is lit and Error indicator (Red LED) is blinking at the same time, jobs are held in the printer memory due to an error, possible cause is out of toner or paper has run out, or toner cartridge is not installed. Check the LCD for and error message and refer to the documentation that came with the printer to resolve the error.
4. Disconnect Fax line cable from the MF4150 to prevent Fax reception interruption during firmware update.
5. Make sure the USB cable is directly connected to the MF4150 and your computer.
  • Do NOT use a USB hub to connect the cable, as it may lead to a connection error.
  • Make sure the machine is not in the Sleep mode (i.e., [Energy Saver] key on the operation panel is leit). To exit the Sleep mode, press [Energy Saver] and confirm that the Energy Saver light is off.
  • You need to log on as an administrator to perform this update.
  • Make sure that no other applications are running on your computer.
6. If [Found New Hardware Wizard] appears on your PC screen, click [Cancel] to exit the screen.
  • [Found New Hardware Wizard] screen may be displayed multiple times. Cancel anytime you encounter this screen while performing this update.
7. Double-click ?MF4150_FirmwareUpdateTool_V0xx.exe? that you downloaded and saved.
8. Double-click "MF4150_V0xx_FirmwareUST.exe" that is in the newly created folder as a result of uncompressed downloaded file.
9. Confirm that the machine is in the ready status, and then click [Transfer]
  • If the printer is not detected: Check if the printer's power is turned on and the USB cable is properly connected. Then click [Retry] to proceed.
10. The firmware is transferred to the printer.
  • Never turn of the power to the MF4150 while firmware is updating. If power interruption occurs while the firmware is being updated the control board will be damaged and will need to be replaced. The replacement of the control board and labor will not be covered under warranty.
  • If an error occurs while transferring the firmware: Check if USB cable is properly connected. Click [Retry] to proceed.
11. When [Firmware transfer is complete] appears, click [Exit].
The printer starts the update process automatically.

My colour printouts from new Samsung CLP-310 do not match original WORD 2000 docs colours (or compared to HP deskjet. Is there a MS patch for this?


There is an update for your printer. This is a firmware update. A firmware update, rewrites code located on the printer's main system board. The latest update is dated 10/17/08.

Flashing firmware does not have a go back element or undo, so it is really important that we verify your model and what seiries of printer you have. I suspect you have a CLP-300 Series printer and that the 310 of the 300 just describes some features added or left off and even who you purchased it from, in many cases.

Please look at these two photos and then post the data off the name plate for your model number in particular.

406eb47.jpg ccb435d.jpg

You will notice there are two lines to include in your reply.
1.) The Model: (first line)
2.) M/C entry (second to last entry in this photo of the label.

Once you verify this and I post the firmware update link for you, you will need to follow the instructions I include below.


[from PDF file on this firmware upgrade]

Samsung has released a new Software upgrade file for print quality, automatic error recovery, and toner save mode on color laser printers.

Procedure to Set-up Download Mode on Your Printer - CLP-300 series
Turn power off.
While holding down the ‘STOP’ button on the Printer, turn the Printer back on.
Keep holding down the ‘STOP’ button until all the LEDs turn orange.
Then release the ‘STOP’ button, and press it again, one more time.

1. How to Upgrade
Please make sure to check the printer model number before performing the firmware upgrade.

3. Caution

If the printer is connected by a USB cable, disconnect all other USB devices, except your keyboard & mouse, from the computer.
If possible, be certain the Printer is connected to a BackUPS

Firmware Update Confirmation Instruction
Model CLP-300 series
When firmware upgrade is started, status LED light will start blinking.
As the printer reinitializes, status LED light will automatically turn off and then on.
Firmware upgrade is complete when status LED stays on green.

After firmware upgrade is completed, the LCD will display the message ‘Ready Copy’ and the LEDs will stay on green.

4. If there is an Error after firmware upgrade
