    I've done what you suggested already. But it didn't work. I think there is a virus and the computer just died (won't boot)
    thank you!


  • joyceleedy Feb 02, 2010

    I actually got the computer rebooted again. Still getting the same error message
    when trying to print a receipt...even after changing the setting to "share OPOS printer with other applications."
    Hopefully you have some other tricks!



  • joyceleedy Feb 04, 2010

    Did both, still doesn't work...same error.
    Thanks!

When you're printing, is your Store Manager open? You might not have closed the POS application properly.

If Manager is open while you're printing, try closing your manager

then, launch your POS and create a transaction. See if the error is

still there

Hello, Joyce.

If this is used by multiple users, be certain that others are logged out (and PCs shut off if necessary).

Also, from Epson Support: be certain to set to share the OPOS in SO Mgr config. This is under SO Mgr> File> Config> Options> POS Options> 'Share the OPOS printer with other applications'.

Hope this helps.

    Hi, Joyce.

    Here are some suggestions for a non-booting computer:

    Either you have a memory issue or operating system problem.

    First, disconnect all cables. Be certain to dispel static electricity by touching metal. Remove the cover. Try reseating (removing and reinserting) your memory (try one module at a time to test).

    If still a problem, boot your system to Safe Mode (press F8 repeatedly). Go to System Restore and choose a date when your system worked OK. Note: with System Restore, everything, including your documents and other files you saved on the hard drive, will roll back to that date.

    If you can't access System Restore by Safe Mode, try Offline System Restore:
    1. Boot from the DVD
    2. Select the Language
    3. Click on "Repair your Computer" on the Install now screen
    4. Click next on the System Recovery Options screen
    5. Click on System Restore.
    6. Choose the date to which you want to restore

    If still a problem, the last choices are Factory Restore and reinstall. Accessing Factory Restore (restores to the factory settings and will wipe out anything that you have installed or saved on your PC), is dependent on your hardware manufacturer. Boot your system and press F10, F11, Alt+F10, or Ctrl+F11 to access Factory Restore. Follow the prompts.

    If still not resolved, you'll probably need to reinstall your operating system.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi, Joyce.

    I'd suggesting running anti-spyware and anti-malware. So, download, install and run these 2 free programs: http://www.spybot.com and http://www.malwarebytes.com

    Again, hope this helps.

49 4C02 - error


From looking online this message indicates the following: "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 homegrown applications."

The advice for resolving this issue is as follows:
1. Press CANCEL JOB to clear the print job from the printer memory.
2. Turn the printer off and then back on.
3. Try printing a job from a different software application. If the job prints, go back to
the first application and try printing a different file. If the message appears only with a certain software application or print job, contact the software vendor for assistance.
4. If the message persists with different software applications and print jobs, disconnect all cables to the printer that connect it to the network or PC.
5. Turn the printer off.
6. Remove all memory DIMMs or third-party DIMMs from the printer. (Do not remove the firmware DIMM in slot J1.)
7. Remove all EIO devices from the printer.
8. Turn the printer on.
9. If the error no longer exists, install each DIMM and EIO device one at a time, making sure to turn the printer off and back on as you install each
device.
10. Replace a DIMM or EIO device if you determine that it causes the error.
11. Remember to reconnect all cables that connect the printer to the network or computer.
12. If the error persists, replace the firmware DIMM.
13. Replace the formatter and calibrate the printer. See Calibrate now.

Hope this helps.

Error 49.ff04 for hp cp 3525x


Normally caused by firmware.
This error can be caused by corrupted print
jobs, software applications issues, nonproduct
specific printer drivers, poor-quality
USB or network cables, bad network
connections or incorrect configurations,
invalid firmware operations, or unsupported
accessories.
Power cycle the printer. Try printing from a different application. If the error doesn't come back, it could have been caused by the other application. If it does return and you are sure that your cables(USB or network) are good, you will probably have to upgrade the firmware.

49, 4c02 error in hp 4250


This is what the result for that error code is:-
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.

No error message will be in event log.

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 homegrown applications. On rare

1. Press CANCEL JOB to clear the print job from the printer memory.
2. Turn the printer off and then back on.
