I've been getting the same error. I've realized that somehow a Microsoft update I did recently must have set my computer to require XPS (a new format) to save and print most documents.I'm running Windows Vista and Firefox. I just discovered that my default printer name was changed to "XPS Document Writer". For some reason, you can't see this when going to Printer settings in Control Panel. I had to click "Print" on a web page, view the "Print" popup window that always appears, and then select my HP printer again. Hope this helps.

Reboot pc and unplug printer

I had exactly the same problem and tried rebooting my PC and so on but it turns out that the printing was paused.
The steps to correcting this problem are as follows.

1) Get onto your control panel
2) Go to your current printer
3) right click on the printer icon
4) click on resume printing

Sorry if it doesn't do the job for you and good luck getting your printer to work, however this worked for me so I thought I'd share it with everyone to avoid the aggrevation that I went through.

Hope it helps!

    What worked for me was to push the "Cancel" button. The error message disappeared and went back to the normal toner screen.

Trying to print a picture from my dell computer. when i hit print on the computer printer does not print. what button do i push on the printer itself. when i go to view/print it just says to insert memory...


With the printer power on, unplug and then plug in the printer from/to the computer. This should force the printer to be reinstalled.
Check the printer status.
Click START>Control Panel>Devices and Printers>click on your printer. check the status for any error messages. On the printer status, delete all pending jobs. Once the printer status display shows that all pending jobs have been deleted, retry printing.
Let me know if printing is reestablished. Thanks.

How open in laser toner catridge make-xerox model-phaser 3100


Replace the toner: Always use the smart card provided with the new Print Cartridge when replacing the cartridge. The smart card contains the information necessary to reset the level of Toner. Replacing the cartridge without using the smart card may result in the consumable management system being inaccurate.
  1. Insert the smart card provided with the new Print Cartridge into the smart card reader. A "Change Toner?" message will be displayed.

  2. Press the [OK] button. An "Open Front Cover Replace Toner" message will be displayed.
  3. Push on the left and right side of the Front Cover and simultaneously lower the cover.

  4. Grasp the handle on the Print Cartridge, and then raise and remove the cartridge from the machine.

  5. Unpack the new cartridge, and then insert the cartridge into the machine.

  6. Close the Front Cover. A "Have You Changed the Toner?" message will be displayed.

    3100-front-cover-close.jpg

  7. Press the [OK] button. A "Please Wait" message will be displayed while the machine reads the smart card, and then a "New Toner Remove Card" message will be displayed.
  8. Remove the smart card from the reader and dispose of the card as normal office waste.

    NOTE: If the smart card has been used with a previous installation of a Print Cartridge, a "Remove Card Already Used" message will be displayed. The smart card can only be used once. Make sure to use the card that came with the new cartridge.

My HP4700 Printer is displaying a 49.5001 Error message


Control Panel Message:
49.XX.XX
PRINTER ERROR
To continue
turn off then on

Description:
A critical firmware error has occurred that
caused the processor on the formatter to
abort operation. This type of error can be
caused by invalid print commands, corrupt
data, or invalid operations. In some cases,
electrical noise in the cable can corrupt
data during transmission to the printer.
Other causes include poor-quality parallel
cables, poor-connections, or home-grown
programs. On rare occasions, the formatter
is at fault, which is usually indicated by a 79 Service Error.

Recommended Action:
1. Turn the printer off then on.
2. Press Stop to clear the print job from
the printer memory.
3. Turn the printer off then on.
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. If the message
displays only with a certain software
program or print job, contact the
software vendor for assistance.
5. If the message persists with different
software programs and print jobs,
disconnect all of the cables to the
printer that connect it to the network or
computer.
6. Turn the printer off.
7. Remove all memory DIMMs or thirdparty
DIMMs from the printer. (Do not
remove the firmware DIMM.)
8. Remove all EIO devices from the
printer.
9. Turn the printer on.
10. If the error no longer exists, install
each DIMM and EIO device one at a
time, making sure to turn the printer
off and on again as you install each
device.
11. Replace a DIMM or EIO device if you
determine that it causes the error.
12. Remember to reconnect all of the
cables that connect the printer to the
network or computer.
13. If the error persists, upgrade the
firmware compact flash card. See
Installing a flash memory card
on page 113.
14. Replace the formatter and calibrate
the printer. See Full Calibrate Now
on page 521.

Displays Error Code 1203 - What is that? User Manual is lost.


The error 1203 error message on the operator panel could indicate a problem with one of the ink cartridges. Please follow the steps given below:

1. Please make sure the All-In-One is powered on.
2. Pull the control panel towards you, and then open the cartridge access door. The print cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position.
3. Pull the old cartridges towards you, and then lift them out.
4. With the cartridges out of the printer, shut the access door and the control panel.
5. Power the printer OFF and then back ON.
6. Please check the operator panel to see if the same error has returned or if a new message has appeared.
7. If the message displayed is 1203, there is something wrong with the printer hardware.
If the message now displaying is Cartridge Missing, do the following:

1. Reinstall the cartridges into the printer.
2. Insert the color cartridge in the left carrier. Insert the black cartridge in the right carrier.
3. Push back firmly on the cartridges until they snap securely into place.
4. Close the cartridge access door, and then close the control panel.
5. If the 1203 message is still present on the operator panel, you need to insert one cartridge at a time to determine which cartridge is producing the failure.
6. With one cartridge in the carrier, close the access door and control panel.
7. Please check the operator panel. If the 1203 error is displayed, this cartridge is the defective item. If the Cartridge Missing message is displayed, the second cartridge is producing the failure.
8. Please replace the defective cartridge.

How to use the memory card reader


To access the memory card reader without using the software provided, follow the steps below. If no card is inserted, the green light on the card reader will be on.
Insert a memory card.
• Insert the card with the brand name label facing up.
• If there is an arrow on the card, make sure it points toward the printer.
• If needed, make sure you connect the memory card to the adapter that came with it before inserting it into
the slot.
Wait for the light located to the right of the slots on the printer to come on. The light blinks to indicate the memory
card is being read or is transmitting data.
• The printer recognizes one memory card at a time. If you insert more than one memory card, a message appears
on the display prompting you to remove all memory cards inserted.
• If a USB flash drive is inserted together with the memory card, a message appears on the display prompting you
to choose which memory device to use.
When reading of images is complete, the number of photos found appears on the display. Then you can make your selection and print. these are the types of memory card supported by you printer.
xD-Picture Card
• Secure Digital (SD)
• Secure Digital High Capacity (SDHC)
• Mini Secure Digital (with adapter)
• Micro Secure Digital (with adapter)
• MultiMedia Card (MMC)
• Reduced Size MultiMedia Card (with adapter)
• MultiMedia Card mobile (with adapter)
• Memory Stick (MS)
• Memory Stick PRO
