Question about HP LaserJet 4600dn Color Printer

Problems during warm up

On powering up the printer, it goes through the initializing process but stops at the 'performing calibration' stage. Sometimes it then goes through the motins and is in the 'Ready' status but when it comes to printing from the computer, this is intermittent and sometimes not at all. Any suggestions as to fixes would be appreciated.

    Printer hangs during power up. Sometimes at the memory check, sometimes at the "Initializing..." or "Calibrating". First sign of any trouble was an EIO error message that I didnt note down.

Have you tried updating the firmware. You can get the updates at http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DriverDownload.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=74303&taskId=135&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=74301&lang=en&cc=us

If that does not solve it you may need to try increasing your memory,

Hope this helps.

Samsung refrigerator error code 8E

8E = OVER CURRENT ERROR


IPM fault signal (this is caused by the overload of the MICOM INTO during motor action).

IPM: Integrated power module. The IPM controls the motor.

If the fault (low signal) happens to be sensed even once during the washing/rinsing stage, the motor stops immediately. However, during the dehydrating stage the signal is to be sensed, when the number of signals reads more than 6 per 500ms during the Washing or Rinsing cycle action.

If the motor stops working, in one direction ten times, "8E" Error is displayed.

During dehydrating, when the overload is sensed, the motor stops working at once and then feeds back to the initial stage of the dehydration unbalance sensing. When the feed back has occcurred twice, Error "8E" is displayed during the dehydrating unbalance sensing, No error happens by overload sensing. When it happens at more than 800rpm, the process is stopped compulsorily. Power Switch OFF can clear the overload error.

Either: the sheet you loaded is

misaligned.

Realign it again. See the Users Guide

for a short tutorial on loading media.

Or: it is an invalid size.

For supported media sizes, refer to the

Users Guide.

Or: the media lever is lowered.

Raise the lever.

Or: the cover is open when the printer is

initializing.
Lower the cover

These are the trouble shooting suggestions from the HP service manual
