Question about HP Color LaserJet 4500 Printer
HP 4500 Printer error - Error 49 Cycle Power FFF
printing with black horizontal bands on sheet.
49 errors are possibly one of the most difficult to diagnose.
49 Indicates that a firmware error occurred that caused the processor on the formatter to abort an 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 home-grown applications.
On some occasions, the formatter is at fault, but this is usually
indicated by a 79 Service Error.
I see you state a 49FFF? any other letters or digits displayed?
Specifically 49 FFFF can be a problem if the ribbon cable from the DC controller to the interconnector board is not connected. The control panel display will also be dark.
Other 49 FFx errors can be:
NEC firmware chip error - replace the Firmware
Unsupported EDO Memory installed - Remove unsupported RAM
Fuser life test error during Boot cycle - Replace the Formatter
A Large print Job (>800 pages) or complex graphics can cause the device to quit printing. - Simplify the Print Job, lower DPI etc.,

Hello, the dreaded 49.2F9D Error Turn Power On/Off and other related 49 Errors.
This tip relates to the Hewlett Packard P3005 Series Printer - General reference to most HP Laser Printers
There have been many reports of this error in the HP genre of laser printer. This is a generic fatal error; the root cause is undetermined in most cases. It could be related to an application "corrupt data" or faulty printer firmware, or the formatter board or other associated hardware or accessory. The first step in troubleshooting this error is to isolate the printer from any computer source - disconnect from any I/O ports, Network/USB etc... Power cycle the printer. Does the error still report? If NO then an application may be causing the error, try to isolate the file causing the problem. Clear any pending print jobs. If YES then Firmware/Formatter most are the problem. A new firmware file can be found here. P3005FIRMWARE
Pay close attention to PDF files with embedded JPEG files.
Pay close attention when printing Emails or Web Pages.
In rare circumstances the fuser has been reported to cause the 49.2F9D error. (P3005 specifically)
