DCP-J315W shows "Unable to Init 4F"


Turn off the printer and unplug it from the power. Then press and hold the power button for 1 minute. Now release the button, plug in the printer and turn it on and see if the error clears.

If it doesn't fix the issue, you probably have to replace the cartridges. They will cost about $65. Good luck!

How to clear "unable to init.73" in brother dcp-j125 printer?


Hi
This is a mechanical problem of some description. Open the scanner cover and remove any foreign objects and paper scraps from inside the machine. Then, disconnect the machine from the power for several minutes and reconnect it. This should clear the error, but if it does not repeat the procedure making absolutely certain there is nothing in the printer obstructing the paper path.
You can get a manual for this machine here:

and there is a manual resetting procedure that you might try here:

Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

What does the error message - 49.4C02 - mean?


49 errors are often caused by the printer receiving commands it does not understand. Sometimes hardware failures but not often. To determine hardware or software, turn the printer off. Unplug any network or USB cables attached and turn printer on. If it will come to ready with no cables attached, then likely you have a print job that is causing problems. This can be fixed by installing the latest firmware from HP.com. Download the Easy Firmware Update Utility version. To install this update you need to have the printer connected to the computer, so check the print queues to make sure that there are no print jobs pending, delete them if there are. Plug the network or USB cable back in. Wait a couple of minutes to make sure that the 49 error does not come back. If printer stays on ready, run the upgrade utility and your problems should be gone. If it is a hardware issue then a different set of trouble shooting steps applies. Post back if this does not fix your problem.

F9-88 code on arm317


F9-88 = Print PCB to Main MFP Board Comm Timeout

You can clear this by turning your copier off and then on. Try turning it back on with the network cable unplugged, run your machine, then plug the network cable back in. If the error code comes back, its: 1) bad network cable 2) ungrounded electrical plug for copier or router 3) noise on network line 4) copier needs firmware update 5) replace the print board

No display clean ram and switch on ok but not reddy 49.FF05 ERROR in valied nand key press any key


ISSUE: A 49.x service error appears on the HP Color LaserJet 4500 or 4550 printers display, and other unexpected errors may be displayed such as:

  1. Turn the printer off, and then turn it on again. If the 49 error clears, proceed to Step 9.
  2. If the 49 error returns turn the power off, unplug the power cable, disconnect all network cables, and remove the HP Jetdirect card, which is located on the formatter, (see Figure 1 for location), or any third-party devices, if installed.
  3. Wait at least 30 seconds before plugging the printer back in directly to a wall outlet. Do not plug the printer into a power strip or a surge protector.
  4. Turn the printer on, using a cold reset. If the 49 error returns, turn the power off, and unplug the printer. Remove the formatter, and check that the parallel I/O board is firmly installed on the formatter board.
    NOTE: To perform a cold reset, turn the printer off, and hold down the GO button while turning the printer back on. Remember to remove the Jetdirect card (if installed) before performing a cold reset. (The Jetdirect card is located on the formatter).

I have a Lexmark printer that is causing me problems. When I switch it on the display stays black or looks like snow and I can't scan anything from the printer. When I try scan from my computer it says...


A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer from your computer. Reboot your pc. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer. Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection.


If that doesn't help, try the steps below:

1. Disconnect the printer from your computer.

2. Re-brick your printer. Pull out the power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds.

2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.

3. Delete the Lexmark print object.

4. Reboot your pc.

5. When your pc turns on, reconnect the printer.

6. Wait until your pc fully recognizes the USB connection. To check, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes. If you see a new Lexmark print object in the list, then try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

I am getting an error of: 49.4Co2 on my HP color laserJet 5550hdn. Have tied turning it off; unplugging butno luck. the error message continues to appear


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.
