Hp laserjet pro 400 401n service notice 49

First check your cable connection to your device and to the network switch. 49 error is a communication error. It can be caused by a bad cable, switch or the printer formatter board. If you have a 2nd printer put the 2nd printer using the same cables as the one with the problem. If the problem follows the printer then its the formatter board.

How do I eliminate Error 81.0185 EI01?

normally can be the network card. upgrade the jetdirect firmware and the printer firmware if you can, otherwise you need a new formatter board. before buy a new formatter you can try to bake its chip, warming it until 280°C for 20-30 seconds (but cover plastic parts around). sorry for my english

I am getting the error:49:4c2d error turn off the on i have turn it on the off but still the problem it still there and now its just freezz

Common with the P3005 anymore thanks to our "friends" at HP having this stuff made in China. Chip failure in the formatter board causes freezes, your 49.xx error, blank display, more. Formatter must be replaced and is simple.

If your machine has USB and parallel (no networking) then the formatter should be Q7847-61006 and if it has built in network and USB (P3005N and P3005DN) then its a Q7848-61006. Liberty Parts Team at (Colleen Longseth) has refurbished without need to send the bad board back at reasonable pricing. Be sure to give the agent the model of the machine, starts with a Q.

Since you cant get a configuration page out of the machine you will have to start at 0 on page counts but once the formatter is replaced go down the menu to SERVICE and when prompted for PIN insert 10300506 to access the service menu.

Service manual free download at - down the left navigation bar is an icon for service manuals - click and get what you need in PDF - dont make ebay sellers rich selling copyrighted PDFs illegally.

49.4c02 service error in hp laserjet 2300n

HP 2300 ERROR 49.XX
• A critical firmware error has occurred on the printer
• Turn printer off then on
• Disconnect the parallel cable or the network cable
• If message still there when the network cable is disconnected
upgrade firmware in jet direct card and the formatter board
• Bad network cable
• Replace firmware DIMM
• Replace the jet direct card
• Replace formatter board
• Replace engine board

95% of the time it is a PDF that has a font that is not recognized by the printer! If the error is not there when you follow the above, you may have to clear out the print queue.

Hp LJ P3005DN hangs during boot. Sometimes during

It would not surprice me if you have a defective formatter board. This is a very commen problem with this machine. Officialy you have to replace the formatterboard but there is also an other way to fix it. Put the formatterboard in to a preheated oven 190 degrees Celcius (350 fahrenheit) for 8 minutes. 8 out of 10 times it works fine fine and the machine is up and running. If this does not work you still can replace the formatterboard.

Service Error 49 FF04

A 49 error is a firmware error, it might be caused by the firmware itself, or by the failure of a printer module.

How to isolate the cause:

- Verify that the problem is not being caused by a specific job, this error can be caused by bad information being sent to the printer.
- Power off and remove any installed EIO devices, (JetDirect Cards, Hard Drives), power on and test.

Cold Reset the printer:

- Power off, remove any optional memory, power on and retest.
- Power off and reseat any memory and firmware modules on the formatter board, power on and test.
- Power off, reseat the formatter board, power on and test.

Check firmware version: on newer machines with flashable firmware upgrade to the latest version. If you are running the latest version reload it, this might fix corrupted firmware. (Some printers have flashable firmware, others use a Firmware DIMM which must be replaced to upgrade.)

If you haven't found the cause yet it's time to start swapping parts:

- Firmware module if it's a DIMM as opposed to being part of the formatter.
- Memory if installed, some printers have to have at least one memory module installed to run, and it must have enough capacity to function, in some cases installing a module that does not meet the minimum requirements of the machine will cause a 49 error

This more likely to be a problem with the formatter board. error 49 is a typical communication problem between the formatter and the dc controller. Contact hp tech support for a list of authorized service providers. 1800 334 5144
