It's from your jet direct card.

If yes - upgrade the jetdirect firmware and by weDownload Manager Pro" style="background-color: transparent !important; border: none !important; display: inline-block !important; float: none !important; font-style: normal !important; font-variant: normal !important; font-weight: normal !important; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Verdana, Tahoma, sans-serif !important; height: auto !important; margin: 0px !important; min-height: 0px !important; min-width: 0px !important; padding: 0px !important; vertical-align: baseline !important; width: auto !important; text-decoration: underline !important; background-position: initial initial !important; background-repeat: initial initial !important;">the printerarrow-10x10.png firmware

If that still doesn't work, try a cold reset with the card installed (hold down the green button as you power on, in 5-10 seconds the display will flash cold reset and you can let go and see if the printer comes to ready) Good luck! :)

My Konica Minolta Magicolor does not fully INITIALISE. As it starts up, the only message displayed in the LCD is Magicolor 4650 EN 256 MB memory ram. and it halts there. Any help?


Update the firmware using the following link:

http://kmbs.konicaminolta.us/productsattachments/manuals/FirmwareUpdaterGuide.pdf

The following manual was read by me. The Troubleshooting section and error message section didn't mention the 256 MB memory ram error.

http://kmbs.konicaminolta.us/productsattachments/manuals/magicolor4650EN_4650DNUserManual.pdf

However, there is supposed to be an 'initalizing' message if the printer is initializing.

Also, there is a 'memory full' error when there are too many fonts on the memory card, but this is not something you mentioned.

If you can't solve the problem with the above, I would consider having the unit serviced by Konica Minolta.

877-778-2687 is the number for service information at Konica Minolta for your printer.

Please call 877-778-2687 for service information.

HP 4650 turns on, does the count up to 128MB, HP logo appears then it stops and only "initializing" on display.


Remove the Jetdirect card and try it. These tend to cause this fault. If not, possibly down to the formatter board

Remove the jetdirect network card. Then power it on and see if it goes ready. If it does then it could be a fault with the jetdirect card

Message &quot;card slot not initialized


The HP Color LaserJet 4650 printer also has three flash memory card slots for printer firmware, fonts, and other solutions. The HP Color LaserJet 4610n does not include any available flash memory card slots.
■ The first CompactFlash slot is reserved for printer firmware.
NOTE Use the first flash memory card slot for firmware only. The slot is marked “Firmware Slot.”
■ The two additional CompactFlash memory slots in the HP Color LaserJet 4650 printer enable the user to add fonts and third-party solutions, such as signatures and personalities. The slots are marked "Slot 2" and "Slot 3."
--- These card slots are located inside the Formater unit. Most likely you either are missing the firmware card or it's defective.
Hope this helps!
good luck!

HP 4650 stops at "initializing"

Business cards get stuck in HP 4650


The card stock is most likely too heavy for the 4600. If you check the owners manual, you will most likely find this is "Out of media specifications".

Other color HP laser printers like the 2500 cannot move card stock well either.

HP will tell you that 'if the printer moves paper perfectly' it's not broken.

My Printer has an Error Message saying "card slot not Initialized


Try this.

1. Turn the printer on.
2. When the memory count start Press and Hold the "Menu" button.
3. Release the "Menu" button when all 3 LEDs are illuminated.
4. Press the 'back' button.
5. The display will then show "Initialize disks".
6. Press the green "Check" button to start the process. This will take some time.
7. The printer will automatically come back to "Ready" after this procedure.

If the above doesn't work, you may have a bad memory card.

ERROR CODE 81.018,E101


According to my reserarch this error usually refers to an EIO card error in slot 1.
you could try reseating the card , maybe in another slot.
A firmware upgrade could help.
if those don't help it may need a new card.it can't hurt to check any cables, make sure nothing is lose
