Your first requirement is to check the print queue, double click on the print icon on the taskbar and check how many print queues are there. If there are more except the one you gave, delete them. To do this, select the unwanted print queues, right click, cancel. Next, check your Ram, how much memory is available, at least 512mb should be installed to run a modern printer error free, i recommend 1Gb.
Thirdly, clean all the temporary files and unwanted registry files using a registry cleaner, you can download one from here Ccleanerperiform or here ccleaner.
Again, make sure no virus has been infected your system. If this problem still persists, run a full virus scan using an updated antivirus
You'll also need to update the driver of your printer to the latest version. If you still have problem even after doing this, Please let me know. I wish you good luck.

Error 49.38.07

Power off the printer for a minute. Power it on. Do you get the 49 error, does the printer READY? If it comes READY wait a few minutes. No 49 error? start printing, anything. 49 come back? clear the print queue after powering off the printer. Power back on. Do what you did above. No 49 error, it was probably a bad print job in the queue. If it comes back again, you will have to go to and answer the questions until you get to the FIRMWARE UPGRADE. Read it carefully and do it.
It's also possible there is a bad network, bad memory or bad formatter.

49 server error

49.xx.xy error- General firmware error ( like a blue screen in windows)
a corrupt print file is usually the cause and can be cleared by disconnecting the printer from the network, then cycle the power , allow the machine to come to ready and ask the pritner for a configuration page( just a test to see if the printer is able to respond- if not then replace formatter/firmware chip) when this has finished printing goto the workstation that sent the last files to the printer and clear ALL print queues form the PC then and only after clearing the print queues can you re-connect the network - failing to clear the print queue will cause the printer to re-try printing the corrupt document which will result in 49.xx.xy error being displayed again.

We use hp T770 HDD, error massage 79.03 when loading, after show preparing print system massage in a few minutes. ask for restart but after restarted the problem persist. please kindly help us if there any...

79 errors are often linked to firmware. Unplug the printer from power as well as any network or USB cables you may have plugged in. If the printer will restart without an interface cable connected then it is likely a bad print job. Clear all jobs from the print queues and then plug in the interface cable. If printer continues to stay at ready, download the current firmware and install it. This should resolve the problem.

HP Laser Jet 1200 Series does not respond to the print command. The dialog box shows "printing" then "deleting" then dissapears. The light on the printer stays green. I use Vista 86....

Hi, i think you have a software problem.

Try to download and renew software from here:

Remember to select your operating system.

The x86 is 32 bit, and the x64, is 64 bit system.

Uninstall the old driver before installing the new one.

Try also to erase old print jobs.

Hope this will help you.

49.2f9d error hp laserjet 3005dn how to solve the problem

Most times a 49.xxxx error on an HP printer is caused by either the print driver, firmware or the print job itself.

If it happens when printing a PDF file try sending the file to the printer as an image.

Upgrade the print driver and the firmware.

You may need to disconnect the printer from the pc or network, power it off and pull the plug for a couple of minutes to clear the error.
If it's a network printer it would be a good idea to check the printer queue for any jobs still in it and delete them before powering the printer up again.

Not Printing

The copy function works fine because the printer alone is handling the copy. When you print, you need two machines to get their stories straight. Is your printer turned on before the machine boots up? or is the printer turned on after the machine has booted? Sometimes Windows won't load all the drivers needed if it doesn't detect a device during bootup. You may want to download the latest and greatest drivers from the HP site, uninstall and reinstall the drivers.
