C00f0401 error code

I moved my household goods including HP printer v40xi a few days ago. After the moving, I opened the box and turned on the printer, it showed the error code "c00f0401, power on and off". I powered on and off manay times, but it was still the same. What is the problem and how do I solve it?

I have a solution that works.

But first the background: I have an older model HP G85 printer that's a real workhorse and I love it but when I lost power that c00f0401 code came on and I couldn't clear it. So I called HP support and found them USELESS. A search of the Internet tells you to hit the #6 keys to clear it. Some say hit #9 to clear it and others say to hit #5 keys and still others tell you to disconnect the 'self-feeder' tray cable. I eventually cleared it by hitting the #9 key while simultaneously pressing the ON button. I did that about 50 times then it cleared itself and worked fine for a year. However last week I again lost power and when the power came back on again I couldn't clear it no matter how many times I tried.

SO HERE'S MY LATEST CURE and it worked several times in a row--so I think it will always work in the future.

1. Turn printer off
2. With your left hand hond down simultaneously the 5, 6, 9, and # keys an rhytmically press those keys up and down, up and down, (at the rate of about 3 times a second). AND AT THE SAME TIME: Use a finger from your right hand and press the on/off button rhytmically (at the rate of about 3 times a second). Eventually the INITILIZING light will stay light---then take all your fingers off all keys.
3. After waiting a short time (a minute or son) the computer initializes itself and it works fine.

Anyway, it worked for me each time I tried it. I hope it works for you.

Turn the printer off
Hold down # and 6 while turning it on
Keep holding it down until it finishes turning on.
If that doesn't work then do the same thing using # and 5.

I had the same problem and tried the suggested fix. It did not work for me.

Next, I tried unlocking and removing the guide cover in the back.
Then I checked the guide wheels to make sure that they were able to turn.
When I replaced the guide cover, re-locked it and turned it on, voila! It worked!

C00f0401 error code power on or off


Hi


The 'turn power off then back on' error is generally indicates a problem with the power source. I suggest you move the PSC to another power source. If the problem persists there may be an issue with the power module on the unit. You can return it, test it there. It ther problem is also present exchange the unit for another. You may want to test it at the store before heading home.

Oficejet v40xi only prints partial documents then "disconnects"


XP the virus magnet where anything can happen bad, and DOES !
why run 15year old OS.? why not upgrade.?
The Lenovo stinkpad. (was IBM)
why not move the printer to another PC, ? to prove printers bad
is that hard?
even plugged in to any LAPTOP, say with W10

v40xi , as old as 2003, is yours that old?
was even run on old windows 98 back when.
but has HP support up to windows 8.1
try printer on win7 win 8.
is the way to do this, using the correct driver. from HP.com

Error c00f0401


I have faced the same problem. Eventually I switched off the power, unplugged the cable connecting the printer to the computer, plugged the cable back into the computer and switched on the power again. Much to my surprise the printer performed a self test and worked again. I do keep seeing this error code, but the above "procedure" seems to work for me. Goodluck!
