These errors are almost always caused by outdated firmware. Print a configuration page and check the firmware version against this website . If your version is older than the one on HP's site then download the top option which is the easy install version and run it on your computer.

    Unplug any usb or network cables that are attached and start the printer. If it comes to ready there is a good chance that a firmware upgrade will resolve your problem. The printer needs to be connected to a computer to run the firmware upgrade. if you plug in a network cable and the 49 error returns almost immediately, there is a corrupted print job being spooled to the printer and you need to ensure that any computers that print to that printer do not have a print job queued up. Your best option for upgrading firmware is via USB.

    Connect the printer via USB and if the printer is reconized and installs you are halfway there. Then just go to and find the current easy firmware update utility for your printer., When you launch the utility you will then point it towards your printer and the firmware will be installed. Be sure to wait until the printer restarts by itself. If the 49 error will not clear, or you have a RESEND RFU error the process is much more difficult.

49 service error ff04

your printer driver is corrupt or the files your printing are corrupt- most 49.xxyy errors are down to software external to the printer. not sure?.
disconnect the printer from all network points and cycle the power - when it is ready perform a path print test ( found under the diagnostics menu on the printer itself ) and you will likely find no errors ( if by some horror of horrors you do get 49.xxyy error then you will need to replace the firmware chip - Very Very unlikely) -
what to do--
remove the printer and uninstall from the workstation - reboot the PC - re install the latest driver for your operating system downloaded from HP website
re connect the printer - print away !!

" 49.FF04 Error Turn off

Critical firmware error. Can be caused by invalid print commands, corrupt data, invalid operations or even electrical noise in the cable.

Turn off the printer, then turn it on.
Press Stop to clear the print job from memory.
Turn off and back on.
Print a document from a different software program.
If that document prints, go back to the first program that failed and print a different file.
If the error comes back, that file is corrupt.
If the message persists with different programs and print jobs have the formatter replaced.

HP Laserjet 2420dn will not print and is displaying message '49.FF04 service error'

Does the error display when printing a particular job, or anything that you print? If you have extra memory installed, remove it. Power up and try again. If it won't clear replace the formatter

49-ff04 error

That's a firmware error, not enough memory to print requested page, wrong format for printer, an unavailable font, bad memory, bad formatter board, any number of things.

The 49 series errors are firmware errors, you may need a new formatter pcb.
