Printer error 49.4c02 may occur due to corrupted print queue.
Just clear the queue and restart the printer and the error may be fixed.
This would seem to work for most cases. If none of them are corrupted, check to see if any of them are in an uncommon size.
Larger printings tend to result in this error as well.
Check if it's the cause by clearing the queue then printing normal-sized documents instead.
The error may also be caused due to complicated fonts as they are harder to read, especially if they're in color or written in a pdf format.
If this is the cause of the error you can either stop printing such documents and update the drivers or firmware.
The drivers may contain bugs which cause the printers to act this way, so updating them will solve the problem.

Well I was having the same problem. I cleaned out the queue by canceling the job that it was having the problem with. Turns out the data being sent to the printer was corrupt in this case.

From the Service Manual:
To continue turn off then on
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 cable,
poor connections, or home-grown programs.
On rare occasions, the formatter is at fault
which typically appears as a 79 Service Error.
only appears when using
certain software programs,
contact the software program
vendor for assistance.

This error is typically due to some sort of data corruption. If this is happening on a single file, it could be that file. It could also be related to the individual software sending the print job, bad print commands or invalid. Although rare, a bad cable or connection can be to blame.
First step is to restart the printer, clear all jobs with the Stop button, restart printer again. Then try printing from another program, such as txt editor. If ok, then print a different file from original software, if ok, then print original file.
If failure is with final print, the file is corrupted for printing, recreate file.
If failure is with original software see if there is any updates.
If failure is there directly after restart, try updating printer driver (this is not be a bad idea anyways).
If none of this works, it may well be a formatter board issue, requiring technical service.

Try to upgrade the firmware on the printer, if that error still occurs after the firmware upgrade, you should try and use PCL driver rather than PS driver.
