49.FF09 SERVICE ERROR

My HP Laserjet 2430dtn is connected locally to my workstation. Whenever I boot up in the morning, the printer (on all the time) has recently begun displaying the 49.FF09 SERVICE ERROR. I have to reboot the printer a couple times a day because of this error, though the only time I can guarantee it comes up is when I reboot my wkstn. I have replace the Q6511A cartridge, with no effect. Any ideas? My 2430tn printer recently started showing 49.FF09 SERVICE ERROR. I tried replacing the cartridge and turning it off and back on, but that has not helped. Please let me know what i should do. This is my work printer and we have misplaced the user manual.

First I would mention firmware updates can not be undone, I am using firmware from 2009, due to the fact the 49.FF09 error would happen hourly with the latest firmware. The odd part is March 2013 HP had a new firmware, which disappeared before I could use it. I believe they are well aware of this problem and just won't pony up to it.

Go to http: www.hp.com/support/
lj2410, www.hp.com/support/lj2420, or
www.hp.com/support/lj2430. Click
Download Drivers and Software.
Check for the latest firmware image
version at the bottom of the page. If
this firmware image is newer than the
one installed on the printer and the
printer can receive a firmware update,
download the newer firmware
upgrade.

if this fix does not work try removing memory from machine turn machine on see if issue perssist turn machine off replace memory one piece at a time (if you have more than one installed) testing printer each time if you put in one stick and it works then you put in the second and it doesnt the second stick would be the problem piece.. but usually on this machine upgrading the firmware will solve this issue.

How do I update the firWen I connect the network cable, 49.4C02 error code appear o HP Laserjet P4014dn, pls help!


If the printer will startup with no cables connected but 49's when you plug in the network cable then a computer on the network likely has a corrupt job in it's print queue that is causing the 49 error to occur. Your best option is to connect the printer to a workstation or laptop with a USB cable and update the firmware that way if you cannot find the workstation that is causing the problem. Keep in mind that the 49 error might occur after update if that corrupt print job continues to be sent.

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 !!

How to solve service error 49.00 in hp laserjet 2430dtn printer


49.XXXXX ERROR
A critical firmware error has occurred.

1. Press Cancel Job to clear the print job from the printer memory.
2. Turn the printer off, and then turn the printer on again.
3. Go to http: www.hp.com/support/lj2410, www.hp.com/support/lj2420, or
www.hp.com/support/lj2430. Click Download Drivers and Software. Check for the latest firmware image version at the bottom of the page. If this firmware image is newer than the
one installed on the printer and the printer can receive a firmware update,
download the newer firmware upgrade. Not all printer models can
receive firmware upgrades.
4. Try printing a job from a different software program. If the job prints, go
back to the first program and try printing a different file. If the message
appears only with a certain software program or print job, contact the
software vendor for assistance.

1. After performing the actions listed in the preceding item, if the message
persists when using different software programs and attempting specific print
jobs, disconnect all cables that connect the printer to the network or a
computer.
2. Turn the printer off.
3. Remove all memory DIMMs and thirdparty solutions from the printer.
4. Remove all of the EIO devices from the printer.
5. Turn the printer on.
6. If the error message disappears, reinstall each DIMM, Compact Flash card, and EIO device one at a time, making sure to turn the printer off and then on again (booting to the Ready
prompt) as you install each device. To replace a DIMM, see Appendix D - Printer memory and expansion in the LaserJet 2400 Series User Guide.
7. Replace the DIMM or EIO device that caused the error message.
8. Remember to reconnect all of the cables that connect the printer to the
network or computer.
9. If the error message persists, reinstall the firmware with the latest possible firmware upgrade. Go to http:www.hp.com/support/lj2410, www.hp.com/support/lj2420, or www.hp.com/support/lj2430. Click Download Drivers and Software.
Check for the latest firmware image version at the bottom of the page. If this firmware image is newer than the one installed on the printer and the printer can receive a firmware update,
download the newer firmware upgrade. Not all printer models can receive firmware upgrades.
10. Replace the formatter

Whenever I turn on the printer, 49ff95 service error is displayed


The printer is telling you that it encountered a critical firmware error.
The first thing to do is go to www.hp.com.
Select "drivers and support"
Enter your printer model.
Enter your Operating System.
Find the latest Firmware available and download it.
Read the "Read Me" instructions carefully, and install the upgrade.
This is the first thing to do.

Service Error 49 FF04


A 49 error is a firmware error, it might be caused by the firmware itself, or by the failure of a printer module.

How to isolate the cause:

- Verify that the problem is not being caused by a specific job, this error can be caused by bad information being sent to the printer.
- Power off and remove any installed EIO devices, (JetDirect Cards, Hard Drives), power on and test.

Cold Reset the printer:

- Power off, remove any optional memory, power on and retest.
- Power off and reseat any memory and firmware modules on the formatter board, power on and test.
- Power off, reseat the formatter board, power on and test.

Check firmware version: on newer machines with flashable firmware upgrade to the latest version. If you are running the latest version reload it, this might fix corrupted firmware. (Some printers have flashable firmware, others use a Firmware DIMM which must be replaced to upgrade.)


If you haven't found the cause yet it's time to start swapping parts:

- Firmware module if it's a DIMM as opposed to being part of the formatter.
- Memory if installed, some printers have to have at least one memory module installed to run, and it must have enough capacity to function, in some cases installing a module that does not meet the minimum requirements of the machine will cause a 49 error
