Hello, i figure you folled the instructions regarding the up grade. if upgrade did not work, try using usb, if still not working, problem will not reset, and just like the old computer main boards with cmos upgrades, if did not work then main pcb will need to be replaced.

What can I do to my printer is sending me this message "Downld file now inflate failure Resend RFU over parallel port"

For whatever reason your printer is trying to do a firmware upgrade and it isn't working. If this came out of the blue, you may have to replace the formatter. RFU = remote firmware upgrade. If you caused the problem while trying to upgrade the firmware, try it again

Hp 5550 color laser printer display "downld rfu error over parallel port" how can i get a solution? and what is the cause? thanks

RFU = remote firmware upgrade.
Appears like someone tried to upgrade the firmware.
While the firmware was being downloaded, something interrupted the process. For example somebody tried to use the printer, you had a power problem, your internet went down etc, etc.
You are going to have to try the firmware upgrade again.
If you can't get passed the RFU error, you will probably have to get the formatter replaced.

I have a problemprinter screen says "downld file send RfU upgrade"

Since I have no idea what kind of printer you have, I'll give the general answer.
Upgrade the firmware.
Go to
Select "drivers and support"
Enter your mysterious printer model
Enter your operating system
Follow all the directions
While the printer is getting the new firmware, DO NOT TOUCH IT.
When it finishes it will reboot. When it comes READY, you should be good to go.
