Hi there you both may have the power board blown the only way to check is plug in a new power cord if this doesn't work then will have to find a repair station.

Hope the cable works though
Please rate me

My hp 2420 printer show me an error 49.2FD9

power on your printer, after you see processing data the second time, press cancel.
Everytime I have seen this error is because the user tries to print a PDF file that is corrupt.
This has worked for me in the past.

Error code

This is a ram dimm error try changing dimm(s) to other slots(s) please ask for more info if required

Hp 2420 displays 53.07

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.

Hope that helps you. If so, hit me with a fixya!

Long wait time

Hi there just check that within the properties of the print drive located in printers and faxes right hand click on the printer select the Advance tab at the top then make sure that the spool is either set to start printing after last or after first. Click on the print processor button at the bottom and change the graphic output to one of the other option then close and try the machine.. Once you have selected all of the options and you still have mo joy try a different data cable or connect via another port.

Hope this helps you
Thanks J
