EIO is the port for the network card on the back of the machine turn off machine remove card from EIO2 and install into EIO1 turn machine on and see what happens. If this does not work then open the formatter casing and remove the memory chips (OF COURSE WHEN THE MACHINE IS OFF) after removingone turn machine on and see if it boots up.

The 49 error is normally a software issue with the machine and it has locked within the network area or the memory.

Hope this helps you and please rate me

HP color laserjet error code 49, we turn off the printer when it asks us to but still has an error on it. No clue what is wrong


From the HP Website

ERROR 49.XXXX
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 operations. In some instances, electrical noise in the cable can corrupt data during transmission to the printer. Other causes include poor quality parallel cables, poor connections, or specific software programs. Remove all EIO devices and firmware DIMM if installed. Restart printer. If error is gone replace each EIO device until error appears. Replace device which triggers error. May also be formatter. Firmware updates are available for some machines at http://hp.com and clicking on the drivers and software tab. Also try printing from a different application. If that works go back to the first application and try printing a different file to determine if the problem is file related. You may need to reseat the memory DIMM's or replace the firmware DIMM or formatter board.

Hi This is from the book I hope it helps as you can see its not a very specific fault

good luck Yours Ian



49.XXXX

PRINTER ERROR

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 operations.

In some instances, electrical

noise in the cable can corrupt

data during transmission to the

printer. Other causes include

poor-quality parallel cables, poor

connections, or specific

applications.

Sometimes, the formatter itself is

at fault, which is usually indicated

by a 79 SERVICE ERROR.

1. Press CANCEL JOB to clear

the print job from the printer

memory.

2. Turn the printer off and then

on.

3. Go to htpp://www.hp.com/

support/LJ4200 or htpp://

www.hp.com/support/

LJ4300. Select Download

Drivers and Software. Check

for the latest firmware image

version at the bottom of the

page. If this firmware image

is newer than the one

installed on your printer and

your printer can receive a

firmware update, download

the newer firmware upgrade.

Not all HP LaseJet 4200/

4300 printers can 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. If the message

appears only with a certain

software program or print job,

contact the software vendor

for assistance.

5. If the message persists when

using different software

programs and attempting

specific print jobs, disconnect

all cables that connect the

printer to the network or a

computer.

6. Turn the printer off.

7. Remove all memory DIMMs

or third-party DIMMs from the

printer. (Do not remove the

firmware DIMM in slot J1.)

See "Firmware DIMM" on

page 160.

8. Remove all of the

EIO devices from the printer.

9. Turn the printer on.

10. If the error message

disappears, reinstall

each DIMM and EIO device

individually, making sure to

turn the printer power off and

then on again as you install

each device. To replace
a DIMM, see figure 98 on

I hope this will be of assistance to you, any repairs under taken are at the owners free will.


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)

HP4550 - 49.00FF service error


Turn off the RAM disk on the printer.

Follow these steps:

Troubleshooting steps

1.
Verify that the formatter light is blinking or steady. If the formatter is blinking, it is functioning properly and probably does not need to be replaced. If the formatter light is not blinking, proceed to Step 2.
2.
Turn off the printer and unplug the power cord.
3.
Remove the HP Jetdirect card, third-party device, hard disk, parallel cable, or IFR cable from the formatter if one is installed.
4.
If the error continues with accessories removed from the formatter, perform a cold reset on the printer. Ensure the HP Jetdirect card is not in the printer during a cold reset or the card settings will be changed back to default settings. To perform a cold reset, do the following:
1.
Turn on the printer.
2.
Watch the control panel.
3.
When the memory starts counting, press and hold the green (Select ) button.
4.
Continue holding the green check button until the Ready, Data, and Attention lights flash once, and then stay on steady.
5.
Release the check button when the Ready, Data, and Attention light are on steady.
The control panel will display SELECT LANGUAGE .
6.
Press (Down Arrow ) button once. The control panel will display COLD RESET
7.
Press (Select ). The printer will perform a cold reset and then continue its power-on sequence.
5.
If the printer comes up to ready, print a Configuration page. If a 49 error occurs from printing internal pages, continue on to the next step.
6.
Turn the printer off and unplug the power cord.
7.
Remove the eight screws around the formatter.
8.
Remove the formatter. See Figure 1.
9.
Reseat the firmware and memory modules on the formatter. Check for any DIMMs that are non-HP and remove them. Non-HP DIMMs are not supported by HP and may cause this error. Replace with HP DIMMs, if necessary.
10.
Reseat the daughter (interconnect) board. The daughter board is connected to the formatter behind EIO slot #1. To release the daughter board, push in the black retaining tab underneath the formatter then lift up the one side of the daughter board.
11.
Reseat the daughter board.

12.
Install the formatter.
13.
Turn the printer on again.
14.
If it comes up to READY , print a configuration page. If a 49 error does not appear from printing internal pages, or at power up, continue to the next step.

15
Install the HP Jetdirect card and hard disk before installing the formatter. Verify that each device is properly seated.
16
Test any EIO devices, by turning off the printer, installing each device separately, and printing a Configuration page. Repeat for each EIO device.
17
If the 49 error occurs with any EIO device installed, replace that EIO device.

Firmware Error 49 by Stephen (edited 3/20/07 12:29 PM) reply + / -
It could be a bad job.

First disconnect it from your network and any PC it might be attached to.

Power cycle it, then if it goes to ready status try the built in test pages, do they work?

If the printer will go to ready status and you have a parallel cable with the proper connector, then you can try upgrading the firmware from a PC, you can also try to upgrade the firmware over the network.

Cold Reset HP Laser Jet 4250n by Stephen (3/20/07 1:03 PM) reply + / -
Try a cold reset, it will reset the JetDirect settings, but it's the next step.

Cold Reset:

Power off printer, wait about 5 seconds, then power it on, when asterisks start appearing on the display press and hold the check mark until all 3 lights come on solid, then use arrow keys to find cold reset and push check mark to perform the reset.

Thank You so much for your help... but that didn't work either. Same error code showed up.


Re: HP Laser Jet 4250n by Stephen (edited 3/20/07 2:27 PM) reply + / -
Then you probably need to replace the formatter.

Do you have another printer you can swap parts with?

There is a slim chance the memory DIMM is bad, you can try it with the DIMM removed, if there is more than one DIMM you can try installing just one and then the other.
-----------------------------

A 49 error indicates that the formatter could not understand or execute an instruction within a file or cannot interface with an accessory, DIMM, or EIO device. Troubleshooting 49 errors is done through process of elimination. First determine if the printer functions in a stand-alone mode then test communications to the printer.

These errors can be divided up into two categories; the associated troubleshooting depends on the circumstance the 49 errors are occurring.

A 49 error is always followed by Hexadecimal numbers, for instance, 49.00FF. The Hex code is a memory address. Most Hex codes are not documented.


Re: HP Laser Jet 4250n by dmzcompute (3/20/07 2:26 PM) reply + / -
I do not see anywhere where the printer has been disconected from everything. If you have not done so already disconnect every cable from the printer with the exception of the power cable and turn the printer back on and see if you get the error and if not report back here for further instructions.


Re: HP Laser Jet 4250n by Stephen (3/20/07 3:28 PM) reply + / -
You might also try disabling the embedded JetDirect.

To disable the embedded LAN port

Turn the printer power off.

Power on the printer and watch for the memory count to begin.

Hold down the SELECT (Checkmark) button, when you see the memory count begin.

Continue holding down the SELECT (Checkmark) button until all three printer control-panel lights flash once and then remain on. This might take up to 10 seconds.

After the message SELECT LANGUAGE appears on the display, press the UP ARROW button or the DOWN ARROW button until EMBEDDED LAN DISABLED appears on the display

Press the SELECT (Checkmark) button. The printer then continues its power-on sequence with the embedded LAN disabled.

If this works the JetDirect built into the formatter is bad, you can either replace the formatter, or buy an JetDirect to install in an EIO slot.


Re: HP Laser Jet 4250n by Trev Pearson (3/20/07 10:08 PM) reply + / -
The only other thing to try, before spending money, is to get the network administrator to clear the print queue for that particular printer and then turn it on.

The theory being that a 'corrupt' print job is still in the system and as soon as the printer is turned on, that 'corruption' floods the network card with garbage which promptly goes 49.

If the printer comes 'ready', great. Then do a firmware upgrade. If not, then you will have to spend money on a new formatter.

Regards

Trev

My HP color laser jet 4700n printer is giving me error 49


This is what HP says about error 49:

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.
14. Replace the formatter and calibrate
the printer.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
