Question about HP LaserJet 5si mopier Printer
I have an HP LaserJet 5si MX printer with 40MB and a JetDirect J2552B card (ver. A.08.06) installed and often when it comes out of POWER SAVE mode I get this error displayed on the LED display on the front of the printer: 56.1 ERROR PRESS SELECT KEY When this happens, I have tried pressing the select key, but usually the printer will not respond any longer and I must power cycle the printer. This has become very annoying and I just wondered if anyone else had this problem and what they did about it? Kind of sucks for an HP printer. I thought they were all about quality? -Alan Edwards replace nospam with xnet My HP does the same thing occasionally. I am using it with a Mac. I think it has something to do with the fact that the HP is designed to work with both Postscript and non-PS systems, and is meant to auto-detect between them. For example, I only want to use PostScript. I seem to recall that there is a way to de-activate the mode you never want to use, and then you will lose the confusion, which I think comes from the auto-detection routines. I could be wrong on this, but long ago, a friend fixed this for me, but when I changed computers, it became unfixed. Another thing that likely triggers the confusion is noise in the AC supply. At the office, when we moved the plug to another circuit, the problem went almost completely away, from once a day to once a month. At my house, it came back when the power company changed the transformer in our area. Co-incidence?
Illegal input or bad accessory connector. 1. Turn the printer off, and then turn the printer on. 2. Check the printer’s configuration. 3. Verify accessory connection. You've got a printer that's over ten years old. That's prehistoric in dog years. Don't complain about quality it's time for a replacement printer. Meanwhile check the accessory connections. Something might be loose or corroded.
