49 errors are most commonly caused when the printer receives a print job with commands it does not recognize. You can try updating the firmware as this will often resolve the error. Go to HP's website to find the most recent firmware, however this model is fairly old and likely the firmware update will be fairly old.

Hewlett Packard Laserjet 2605dn Printer: Error 79 after firmware update

HP has now admitted their firmware update causes an irreversible corruption in the formatter board. It is hard to get them to do this, but I understand they will repair at no cost if they can determine that you did install this update.

My hp laserjet M1522nf is showing Firmware corrupt ready 2 download

You need to connect the unit via USB and then run the HP firmware update utility so that the current firmware can be installed. This error is usually caused when a firmware update is interrupted. Current firmware for this unit is 20100902.

Try doing a hard or reset or nvram:
1. Turn the printer off
2. Hold down the select and the cancel button
3. Reboot the printer while holding the buttons and hold until permanent storage is displayed. Let go of the buttons and wait for the ready message on the display.

This should reset the printer

Hp cm1312nfimfp (ready 2 downlod) problem

You have a printer with a firmware corruption

Try downloading the firmware from the website for your printer product number cc431a. There is a new firmware which was just released today. try downloading the firmware and sending the firmware while the printer is off,

If this does not work the formatter board is damaged and it will need to be replaced.

you can also try doing a hard or reset or nvram:
1. Turn the printer off
2. Hold down the right arrow and the cancel button
3. Reboot the printer while holding the buttons and hold until permanent storage is displayed. Let go of the buttons and wait for the ready message on the display.
