X PRINTER ERROR A firmware error occurred 1. Press CANCEL JOB to clear the print job from the printer memory. 2. Turn the printer off, and then turn the printer on. 3. Try printing a job from a different software application. If the job prints, go back to the first application and try printing a different file. (If the message only appears with a certain software application or print job, contact the software vendor for assistance.) 4. If the message persists with different software applications and print jobs, disconnect all cables to the printer that connect it to the network or printer. 5. Turn the printer off. 6. Remove all memory DIMMs or third-party DIMMs from the printer. (Do not remove the firmware DIMM in the lowest DIMM slot.) 7. Remove all EIO devices from the printer. 8. Turn the printer on. 9. If the error no longer exists, install each DIMM and EIO device one at a time, making sure to turn the printer off and back on as you install each device. 10. Replace a DIMM or EIO device if you determine that it causes the error. 11. Remember to reconnect all cables that connect the printer to the network or computer. 12. If the error persists, replace the firmware DIMM. 13. Replace the formatter. This error is usually caused by a bad formatter board.

To continue turn off then on
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
In some instances, electrical noise in the
cable can corrupt data during transmission
to the printer. Other causes include poorquality
parallel cables, poor connections, or
specific software programs.
Sometimes, the formatter itself is at fault,
which is usually indicated by a 79 Service
1 Press CANCEL JOB to clear the print job
from the printer memory.
2 Turn the printer off and then on.
3 Go to www.hp.com/go/lj4200_software,
Select Download Drivers and

image version at the bottom of the

and the printer can receive a firmware
update, download the newer firmware
upgrade. Not all

receive firmware upgrades.
4 Try printing a job from a different
software program. If the job prints, go
back to the first program and try
printing a different file.
hope this helps you

You need to get a technician in. The code is suggesting the formatter board.
Note that make sure that the technician (or you if you are replacing it) that once you replace the board and turn on the machine, don't do anything for about 10 minutes. No printing, nothing. Take out the network/usb cord out to prevent anyone from printing. The reason is that the NVRAM (memory) is updating the new board with your information. If anyone prints (whether from a computer or a configuration page) then it will interrupt the update and you will get the same error again.

a 49.xxxx error on an HP means that there is an issue with one or more hard disks. you can try to re-initialise the hard disk(s) by rebooting the printer while holding the green button. when the three leds are lit, release the green button, and navigate using the numerical buttons until you see "initialise hard disks" on the display of the printer. confirm by pressing the green button again. if all goes well, your printer will take two minutes longer than usual to boot. if you still get the same error afterwards, you need to replace the disk.

Hello, the dreaded 49.2F9D Error Turn Power On/Off and other related 49 Errors.
This tip relates to the Hewlett Packard P3005 Series Printer - General reference to most HP Laser Printers
There have been many reports of this error in the HP genre of laser printer. This is a generic fatal error; the root cause is undetermined in most cases. It could be related to an application "corrupt data" or faulty printer firmware, or the formatter board or other associated hardware or accessory. The first step in troubleshooting this error is to isolate the printer from any computer source - disconnect from any I/O ports, Network/USB etc... Power cycle the printer. Does the error still report? If NO then an application may be causing the error, try to isolate the file causing the problem. Clear any pending print jobs. If YES then Firmware/Formatter most are the problem. A new firmware file can be found here. P3005FIRMWARE
Pay close attention to PDF files with embedded JPEG files.
Pay close attention when printing Emails or Web Pages.
In rare circumstances the fuser has been reported to cause the 49.2F9D error. (P3005 specifically)
