Question about HP LaserJet 3330 All-In-One Printer

3 Answers

79 Error I have a 79 Error code on my HP 3330. I have unplugged it several times, for as much as 5 minutes, and replugged it, and I still received the same message. I read somewhere to "upgrade the firmware", but I don't understand what that means. A search didn't turn up anything. I appreciate your help.

Perform the following steps to troubleshoot the issue:

1. Remove and replace the power cord from the unit.
2. Wait approximately 35 seconds for the scanning assembly to "walk out" and then quickly remove the plug again.
3. Repeat steps 1 and 2, three to four times until the head moves approximately 1 inch away from its normal resting place.
4. Replace the plug and let the product fully finish the boot cycle
5. Please ensure that the current firmware update (20021018W) is installed. You can download and install the same from the link given below:

My 3330 says scanner bulb is warming up then it gives me a error 79 message no ,matter how many times i restart it


The error 79 on that machine means that the scanner assembly has failed to align/calibrate. Could be due to a bad calibration strip on the scanner glass, have you ever sprayed glass cleaner directly onto the scanner glass? If so this can stain the calibration strip and render the scanner useless. It is probably best to have the machine serviced by HP.

Try to perform a soft reset
1. Press MENU/ENTER.
2. Simultaneously press then release the * button and the # button to enter the Developer's
menu.
3. Press the < or > button until the message REINIT FFS appears on the second line of the
control-panel display.
4. Press MENU/ENTER.
5. The process takes approximately 2.5 minutes. During that time, the control-panel display
will change several times before returning to Ready.
6. When the Ready message appears on the control-panel display, press CANCEL to exit the
Developer's menu.
