How to replace a formatter board on hp p3005 printer and is there a way you could print the printer configuration first without replacing the formatter board first?

i don't know if can be any shortcuts to print the configuration if the formatter doesn't work properly. the configuration is stored on formatter memory. if the formatter is in good condition you may follow the menu. to change the formatter is pretty easy. you can search a manual on internet.

Is there some printer procedure for replacing a bad formatter board on the HP Photosmart C4280 printer?

it will be a tough task to replace the formatter board but its doable. Just loosen up the screws located on the side of the printer and if you can remove the rollers , cartridges and bard, you will see the system board of it. In that way, you can replace the formatter board..

HP4550 - 49.00FF service error

Turn off the RAM disk on the printer.

Follow these steps:

Troubleshooting steps

Verify that the formatter light is blinking or steady. If the formatter is blinking, it is functioning properly and probably does not need to be replaced. If the formatter light is not blinking, proceed to Step 2.
Turn off the printer and unplug the power cord.
Remove the HP Jetdirect card, third-party device, hard disk, parallel cable, or IFR cable from the formatter if one is installed.
If the error continues with accessories removed from the formatter, perform a cold reset on the printer. Ensure the HP Jetdirect card is not in the printer during a cold reset or the card settings will be changed back to default settings. To perform a cold reset, do the following:
Turn on the printer.
Watch the control panel.
When the memory starts counting, press and hold the green (Select ) button.
Continue holding the green check button until the Ready, Data, and Attention lights flash once, and then stay on steady.
Release the check button when the Ready, Data, and Attention light are on steady.
The control panel will display SELECT LANGUAGE .
Press (Down Arrow ) button once. The control panel will display COLD RESET
Press (Select ). The printer will perform a cold reset and then continue its power-on sequence.
If the printer comes up to ready, print a Configuration page. If a 49 error occurs from printing internal pages, continue on to the next step.
Turn the printer off and unplug the power cord.
Remove the eight screws around the formatter.
Remove the formatter. See Figure 1.
Reseat the firmware and memory modules on the formatter. Check for any DIMMs that are non-HP and remove them. Non-HP DIMMs are not supported by HP and may cause this error. Replace with HP DIMMs, if necessary.
Reseat the daughter (interconnect) board. The daughter board is connected to the formatter behind EIO slot #1. To release the daughter board, push in the black retaining tab underneath the formatter then lift up the one side of the daughter board.
Reseat the daughter board.

Install the formatter.
Turn the printer on again.
If it comes up to READY , print a configuration page. If a 49 error does not appear from printing internal pages, or at power up, continue to the next step.

Install the HP Jetdirect card and hard disk before installing the formatter. Verify that each device is properly seated.
Test any EIO devices, by turning off the printer, installing each device separately, and printing a Configuration page. Repeat for each EIO device.
If the 49 error occurs with any EIO device installed, replace that EIO device.

HP3030 - burned LIU - how to tell if Formatter board is still OK?

First of all the LIU is a daughter card that fits onto the formatter, its only function is to enable you to send and receive faxes. The ports on the formatter allows PC to communicate to printer by USB or via network.

Try printing the configuration page if this page prints correctly then you know that engine controller and the formatter are working properly together. If it doesn't print try engine test this test excludes the formatter. If engine test good then you're looking at bad formatter, and or purchasing a new printer.

All lights comes on and nothing show on the screen when switch on

Seems like a comunication problem betwen the formatter PCB and the attached parts on it tike jet direct card, memory chip.
With the printer turned off, remove the formatter plastic and metal covers, start removing the jet direct card first, after removed turn the printer on and see if the printer starts normaly....if dont....turn it off and reinstall the jet direct card and do the same with the rest of attachments in the formatter board....if none solve the problem...then probably you have to replace the formatter board.
Some times the contacts betwen the formatter and the memory chip get dirty or contaminated with electrostatic......try cleaning this contacts with contact cleaning solutions or use isopropilic alcohol and a cotton swab...make sure not to use a lot or make sure that is totaly dry before to reinstall the chip(s)...and try again.
The formatter board you can buy it with different vendors but I recomend The Printer Works at 1-800-832-1400 or and ask for a refurbished cheaper and they work very well at this company.
I hope this can solve your problem

Getting error code 49.5507 on a HP3005n What does this error mean. Thank you

Firmware error. Turn off and on. The formatter is probably bad. If the printer was manufactured after March of 08, it has an extended warranty for 1 year on formatter board only. CALL HP and demand warranty service on formatter board. KNOWN PROBLEM.

HP LaserJet P2014 keeps showing paper jam when there is no paper jam. How to clear?


If paper jam light is solid than checked paper path sensors and toner sensors and if they are aligned correctly than perform cold reset(Keep pressing and holding the green button) if still the issue persists and orange light remains solid than i m sure formatter board is faulty and we need to get formatter board replaced.

Thanks and Regards
