Re: 59.0A error in hp color laserjet 3700

All 59.XX error codes have to do with a motor failure of some type. I don't know anything specific about 59.0A but 59.A0 means that either the drum motor failed to start or something bad happened while it was rotating. If you feel like tackling it yourself you can try reseating all the connections to the drum motor and the DC controller board. Other possibilities could be a bad drum motor or a bad DC controller. HP says you can also get this message when the tranfer unit is missing or improperly installed.

If you don't feel like tackling it yourself then it's off to a repair shop unless it's under warranty, in that case call HP.

Try spares from salvaged printers. Look for "working pull from damaged unit". Of course reconfirm model and spare compatibility.

59.9k error on hp laserjet 5500

59.9 error is caused by a problem with the ETB (transfer belt) motor. Check the connector that the belt plugs into to make sure it is not damaged. If you have a spare Transfer Belt I would try that first. Most likely the motor has failed and will require replacement.

Hp color laserjet code error

All the book says is that one of the motors had a problem.
Power it off for at least 30 seconds. Power back on.
Make sure you are not using a surge protector.
Put the power cord directly into the wall outlet.

I just checked the manual for another printer and the 59.f0
could be the ITB. Make sure that it is seated correctly. If you have
a spare install it and see if problem goes away.

Regularly getting error code 50.9 on a HP color laserjet 3550 printer

Hey Joe,
This is what the HP Website has to say about it:
50.X FUSER ERROR Description A fuser error has occurred. Action
  1. Turn the printer off.
  2. Verify the fuser is properly installed and fully seated.
  3. Turn on the printer.
  4. If the message persists, contact HP Support.
BUT! you can try performing a cold reset, and maybe this would help:
500, 3550, 3700, 4600, 4650, 5500, 5550, 8500, 8550, 9500) use the instructions below. 1. Turn the printer on.
2. When the memory starts counting on the control panel, press and hold the green SELECT button. Continue to hold green SELECT button until all three Control Panel LED's are illuminated and on solid.
3. Release the green SELECT button.
4. The control panel will display SELECT LANGUAGE.
5. Press the DOWN ARROW button until control panel displays COLD RESET.
6. Press green SELECT button. The printer will perform a cold reset and then continue its power-on sequence.

Good luck!
