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.
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.

The service Manual says that if both the ready (Bulb) light and the exclamation light are both on it is a invalid engine code /Invalid network code. But to clarify that you say they are both on and solid and not blinking. If they are you have a bad main board. If they are blinking then the error is a Flushing /Resolution reduced error. The cause is: Printer is processing data or printing pages,but the resolution of a page in the current print job is reduced from 600 dots per inch (dpi) to 300 dpi to prevent a memory full error. Solution is: Wait until the ready light is displayed to print other jobs. • Press and release the triangle button to cancel print job. It is the lower of the two buttons. • Press and hold the traiangle button again to reset printer. Hope this helps Bruce
