Question about Brother HL 1440 Laser Printer

1 Answer

Print Error My pc can see the printer cause I deleted it and plug and play picked it up, so I know it's not a connection problem. But I can't print from any program to it. I've downloaded new drivers too. Restarted. It will print a test page but only when I shut it off and hold the button. Trying to run it from properties gives me the same error. I find the error when I open up the spooler and it says error-printing under status. Hope someone can help me. It's for work so I'm stuck without it. Thanks, Tara

What does the error message - 49.4C02 - mean?

49 errors are often caused by the printer receiving commands it does not understand. Sometimes hardware failures but not often. To determine hardware or software, turn the printer off. Unplug any network or USB cables attached and turn printer on. If it will come to ready with no cables attached, then likely you have a print job that is causing problems. This can be fixed by installing the latest firmware from HP.com. Download the Easy Firmware Update Utility version. To install this update you need to have the printer connected to the computer, so check the print queues to make sure that there are no print jobs pending, delete them if there are. Plug the network or USB cable back in. Wait a couple of minutes to make sure that the 49 error does not come back. If printer stays on ready, run the upgrade utility and your problems should be gone. If it is a hardware issue then a different set of trouble shooting steps applies. Post back if this does not fix your problem.

Printer keeps saying busy printing another document

A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer from your computer (if USB connected)> reboot your pc > unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer (if USB connected). Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection or when the WiFi light on the printer turns solid green (if WiFi connected.).


If that doesn't help, try the steps below:

  1. Disconnect the USB cable connecting the printer from your computer.
  2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.
  3. Delete the Lexmark print object.
  4. Reboot computer.
  5. Re-brick your printer by pulling out the power supply - black box where the power cord is plugged into on the back of the printer, and re-plug after 30 seconds.
  6. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to the computer.
  7. Wait until your computer fully recognizes the USB connection. To check, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes. If you see a new Lexmark print object in the list, try to print a document to verify that the problem is fixed.

49, 4c02 error in hp SPAM I AM 1-800-532-4187

This is what the result for that error code is:-
ERROR 49.XXXX
A critical firmware error has occurred that caused the processor on the formatter to abort the operation. This type of error can be caused by invalid print commands, corrupt data, or invalid operations. In some instances, electrical noise in the cable can corrupt data during transmission to the printer. Other causes include poor quality parallel cables, poor connections, or specific software programs. Remove all EIO devices and firmware DIMM if installed. Restart printer. If error is gone replace each EIO device until error appears. Replace device which triggers error. May also be formatter.
Firmware updates are available for some machines at http://hp.com and clicking on the drivers and software tab. Also try printing from a different application. If that works go back to the first application and try printing a different file to determine if the problem is file related. You may need to reseat the memory DIMM's or replace the firmware DIMM or formatter board.

49.2f9d error hp laserjet 3005dn how to solve the problem

Most times a 49.xxxx error on an HP printer is caused by either the print driver, firmware or the print job itself.

If it happens when printing a PDF file try sending the file to the printer as an image.

Upgrade the print driver and the firmware.

You may need to disconnect the printer from the pc or network, power it off and pull the plug for a couple of minutes to clear the error.
If it's a network printer it would be a good idea to check the printer queue for any jobs still in it and delete them before powering the printer up again.

I have an HP printer. There is a full page photo that will not print. When I try to cancel the job is states deleting but does not delete. It deletes other added print jobs but not that one which is...

You have to clear out all documents one by one in the print que before you can delete the one causing the trouble. On the bottom right side of your pc screen, find the picture of the printer and right click with your mouse on it. Open your print que and right click on each document and choose "delete" until therer are none left in the print que. If this does not clear that last document, then unplug your usb cord that connects the printer to your pc and wait a few moments, and then plug it back in. This should clear it out.

49 4C02 error

turn off the IPP protocol, and turn off Multicast IPV4

The 49.xxxx errors are indeed related to firmware and the formatter and can indicate faulty firmware or formatter... but are almost always triggered by some kind of communication that the machine doesn't know what to do with... thus generating an error.

Power fluctuations (not clean power), or random noise (RFI/static) transmitted on network or printer cables can also cause this problem. If your unit sits on a line of power that is shared with other devices (another printer/copier or a group of computers or a vending machine or cooler)... move it to a dedicated power outlet.

If it's caused by signals the machine is receiving, it can be tricky to correct.

Printer busy/or error

Sounds like your machine is using DHCP, not a static IP address?

Print your network settings from the Printer, then try to Ping from a computer on the network.

Check the Network setting of the machine, make sure it is set to a fixed (static) IP Address.

If this is the problem, you can go into your PC printers port and change the port to the reassigned IP Address of the machine.

If you reinstall the drivers then you will have this installed twice, one will work one will not, so delete it from the printers folder before you reinstall before you reinstall
