Hp 2420 displays 53.07

I have a 2420 displaying 53.07 and won't clear with power down. Checked fan with covers off and the fan starts until the error appears. Is there a re-set procedure to clear the error or is the controller toast?

The 53.07 error relates to Memory. Turn the printer off. Remove the right side cover. Remove any and all DIMM (memory) cards and printer/network cables from the formater board. The memory DIMMS are located behind the metal cover. Remove any Jetdirect Cards installed into the EIO slot on the back of the formatter.

With all accessories removed power up the printer and see of it comes to ready. If not, you need a formatter board. If it does come to ready, power it off and plug one peice that you removed back in and try again. Keep adding one at a time and powering up again until the error returns. When you get the error, the last added back onto the machine is the problem.

Here's a copy of the service manual to help with disassembly, troubleshooting and part numbers for ordering.

FF95 SERVICE ERROR CODE IN PRINTER


Does it give a 49.FF95? As their is no such error code "FF95" for a HP 2420. However I've seen 49. XXXX error codes before (XXXX meaning weird Alphanumeric Characters and numbers). This type of error code you can try a couple of Items:
1st - Perform a Cold Reset:
1. Turn the printer off.
2. Hold down the SELECT button, and then turn the printer on. Continue holding down
the SELECT button until all three printer control-panel lights flash once and then
remain on. This might take up to 10 seconds.
3. After the message SELECT LANGUAGE appears on the display, press the
UP ARROW button or the DOWN ARROW button until COLD RESET is highlighted.
4. Press the SELECT button. The printer performs a cold reset and then continues its
power-on sequence.
5. Check all I/O settings and reset any customer-set printer configuration values

If the machine still comes back to the Strange FF95 error I would start with the replacement of the formatter,
Part Number for the Formatter:
Network versions Q3955-60003
Non-network versions Q3953-60001

Hope this helps..

My printer is giving an error message..."error 57.03"to continue turn on then off....i do it to no avail.help me


This is a Fan issue you have 2 of them one on the front right side and one on the left. if you remove both covers see which one is not working
Now if their are both working then you will need to replace the ECU (Engine Control Unit).

I've attached a link that shows you how to remove the covers off the 2420 it's a pdf file .
And the Left side cover will need to be removed to access the other fan.

There is one fix for the 0x errors and it doesn't always work but this is the only option.

Press and hold the "*" key. Press the "#" key and release both keys.
Display should say "Enter Special Key Combo"
Press and release in sequence the "1", "2" and "3" buttons.
Display should say "Support" and display the FW rev (something like R0631R)
Mine reads R0631M
. Press and release the right arrow button until the display says "System Configuration Menu".
Press and release the "OK" button.
Display should say "Hardware failure status". If not there already, Arrow Key over to "Hardware failure status",
Press and release the "OK" button.
Display should say "Hardware failure status: Clear. Press OK to clear".
Press and release the "OK" Button. Message changes to "Hardware failure status Cleared. Press Cancel to continue".
Press and release the "CANCEL" button as many times as necessary, so that, either the "Welcome to Photosmart Express" screen appears, or, the "Ink System Failure" screen appears. PLEASE DO NOT TRY TO PRINT AT THIS STAGE.
Using the Power Button, turn the unit OFF and unplug the power cable from back of the printer and wall outlet.
Wait 30 seconds for the power to get discharged and then plug the power cable into the wall outlet first and then into the back of the printer.
Turn the unit on. The printer may display message "USE POWER BUTTON TO SHUTDOWN THE PRINTER" followed by "PRESS OK TO CONTINUE". Press OK. The Printer will start the "ONE TIME INK INITIALIZATION PROCESS". Allow this process to complete and do not interrupt. Once the initialization process is complete, the printer will print out a Diagnostic Page. Good Luck!

Memory error


Just do 2 steps:

1. Press Stop.
2. If the display highlight "Resume". Press the OK (Check Button).

The display will tell you that a Non-HP Cartridge is installed and Economode is Disabled.
At least, you can now print. The display will show back again to "Ready".
