upgrade firmware in jet direct card and the formatter board

95% of the time it is a PDF that has a font that is not recognized by the printer! If the error is not there when you follow the above, you may have to clear out the print queue.

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.

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.

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.
