Firmware for HP Laserjet 1220

I recently bought a new PC Formatter board from HP for my Laserjet 1220. Unfortunately it is shipped with an out of date firmware version and needs upgrading. The firmware is not available to download from the HP website, and HP support is not willing to supply it. Do you know of place where it can be donwloaded foc?

Nope. It is not available from the HP Authorized Serice Providers site and the manual has no mention of how to obtain the latest firmware.

Sorry

Hp laserjet 1536dnf error 79


Error 79

Software/drivers, Memory PCA's, Font-Macro-Personality Cartridges, option I/O Cards. Defective toner cartridge in the Laserjet 4 Plus only. Remove any accessories (font cartridges, memory PCA's, SIMMs, etc.) plugged into the formatter card and try again. If the problem persists and is application specific, verify proper setup with application vendor.

Defective Formatter PCA - Replace with known operational board and try again.
Firmware Update - The configuration page lists the firmware version of the product. Depending on the model, a firmware
DIMM may need replacing or a flash update. On flash-memory-based products, you can update the firmware code by downloading the latest flash executable file for the product and running the program according to the readme instructions posted with the update file. If the firmware should become corrupted or fail (usually because of an interruption when attempting to update the firmware), the product will no longer function. In this case, a firmware recovery DIMM is available.
Reseat DIMM, then Formatter - Replace or flash DIMM then formatter

Can this also be?

HP Laserjet 4345mfp after memory count finishes control panel goes blank(display is working but all black) nothing else happens. I've already replaced formatter, dc controller and engine power supply,...


I'd be willing to bet that when you changed out the formatter, you used the silver square looking flash dimm from the old board and put it on the new board, If you replace the flash dimm I think your problem will indeed go away... 8mb Flash Dimm

My printer shows memory error on its screen why?


Mem test failure replace Dimm 0 or Mem test failure replace Dimm 1
If either of the are the messages displayed, the problem lies with the mother board (formatter).
DIMM 0 = On Board Memory - cannot be changed. DIMM 1 = Add On Ram - Can be Changed
Make Sure the printer firmware is up to date FIRMWARE
Most Likely the formatter board would require replacing.

Keeps dispalying mem test faliure 1/6 replace dim 0?


Somewhat common failure code on the P3005 machines. Unfortunately this means that your formatter board has failed. Your machine MAY be repaired under warranty depending on it's warranty date with HP. Just contact HP and give them your printer model and serial number and have them check the warranty status. Trust me in what I am telling you, HP has had a large number of P3005 formatter board failures. If you want more info just do a google search on "HP P3005 formatter" or "HP P3005 dimm 0" and you will see this is a problem.
Good Luck and Thank You using Fixya.

My hp laserjet 3005n keeps going to sleep and won't wake up to print.


Hello, In this situation you really have 2 -3 choices. The first being just to live with it, power cycle the printer when required. The other choices are to make sure the printers software of Firmware is up to date. The last choice would be to replace the formatter board. The firmware file is easily uploaded to the printer, the file can be downloaded from the following location http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=ca&prodNameId=1846102&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=1846088&swLang=8&taskId=135&swEnvOID=54

Download the file and unzip to a known location on your compter, be sure to read the "README" file as it contains the instruction to upgrade the firmware. If after upgrading the firmware and the problem remains, you could purchase a new formatter from www.partsnow.com or any Hewlett Packard parts distributor. I wish you luck and I hope this has been benificial to you!!!

Service Error 49 FF04


A 49 error is a firmware error, it might be caused by the firmware itself, or by the failure of a printer module.

How to isolate the cause:

- Verify that the problem is not being caused by a specific job, this error can be caused by bad information being sent to the printer.
- Power off and remove any installed EIO devices, (JetDirect Cards, Hard Drives), power on and test.

Cold Reset the printer:

- Power off, remove any optional memory, power on and retest.
- Power off and reseat any memory and firmware modules on the formatter board, power on and test.
- Power off, reseat the formatter board, power on and test.

Check firmware version: on newer machines with flashable firmware upgrade to the latest version. If you are running the latest version reload it, this might fix corrupted firmware. (Some printers have flashable firmware, others use a Firmware DIMM which must be replaced to upgrade.)


If you haven't found the cause yet it's time to start swapping parts:

- Firmware module if it's a DIMM as opposed to being part of the formatter.
- Memory if installed, some printers have to have at least one memory module installed to run, and it must have enough capacity to function, in some cases installing a module that does not meet the minimum requirements of the machine will cause a 49 error

I now have 2 HP LJ P3005n printers within the past 3 days that have stopped working. 1st error code on printer #1 is = 49.4C22 and 49.4C02 and the 2nd printer is now displaying error code = 49.4C02. What...


The codes indicate firmware errors (possibly a failure of the formatter board, but more likely firmware). Up-to-date firmware is available for download at www.hp.com/support/LJP3005. Read the installation instructions for the firmware update. If you have ANY doubt AT ALL about your ability to successfully update the firmware, pay a shop to do it for you. A failed firmware update may not be recoverable, and the formatter board is rather costly.

Was trying to send a fax - now it says Error 70 turn off and back on - have done this 5 times.


It can be a defective fax module or formatter, but most likely, it is a software issue.

Make sure you have the latest firmware.

When/if firmware is the latest version and problem persists, go to Menu -> Service -> Restore Defaults.

If problem persists, it might be a good idea to try a different land line, if you have one available, before purchasing new hardware.

Please note you need a different board depending on which region of the world you live in. I'm assuming North America here.

The fax module for the 2840, is about $27.31.
Part information:
Q3977-60011 - PC Board (Interface) : Line interface unit (LIU) PC board - Telephone interface board for the printer.

If the problem is in the formatter (main board), the price goes up to $405.65. Please not, that the LIU (fax module) is included in this.
Part information:
Q3948-69006 - Formatter / LIU assembly (for North America) - Includes the formatter PC board, the line interface unit (LIU) PC board, and the metal card cage.

HP P2015 Has Paper LED Solid Lit. Will not go off. Help!


Hello,

It seems that none of the printer's sensor is faulty, in fact, the printer has a faulty firmware on the formatter.

Your printer may need replacement of the formatter board, however, please try the following before swapping the formatter.

HP LaserJet P2015 Printer Series - Paper Jam Light Solid ISSUE: The HP LaserJet P2015 may come up with Paper Jam Light solid and would show the same light pattern even if the printer is power cycled.
SOLUTION: The Light pattern is as shown in the diagram below.
c01553062.jpg
Perform the following tasks in the order listed.
1. Reset the printer using the Super NVRAM initialization. The procedure is
a. Turn off the printer
b. Press and hold the GO button
c. Turn on the printer and continue to hold the Go button for at least 50 seconds. During this process the Attention, Ready and Go light turns on. Then the Attention and Ready light turns off, leaving just the Go light illuminated.
d. Release the Go button. The Go, Attention and Ready lights turn on.
e. Press and hold the Go button. All lights turn off. During the next three seconds, the Go, Ready and Attention lights turn on in that order, one per second.
f. Release the Go button to perform the initialization. The control panel lights begin cycling from front to back. After the Super NVRAM initialization process is complete, the printer returns to the ready state.
2.Unplug the power cord when the printer is on and leave it unplugged for 10 Seconds.
3. Turn the printer back on.
If the above steps resolve the issue, then print a configuration page and check the firmware version and the formatter board no.,
If the firmware version is below: 20080312, then your printer needs to upgrade the firmware, however the firmware can be upgraded only onl those models whole formatter board's third number from left is 0, 1 or 2, eg: JK0xxxx

If the 3rd number from left of the formatter board no is anything other than 0, 1, 2, then firmware cannot be flashed.

Please let me know the next update.

49.4c02 service error coming in hp laser jet 2420dn printer


This is a firmware error, you can try turning the printer on and off a few times, reseating any memory and the formatter board. If these steps don't work Go to http: www.hp.com/
support/lj2410, www.hp.com/
support/lj2420, or
www.hp.com/support/lj2430.
Click Download Drivers and
Software
. Check for the
latest firmware image version
at the bottom of the page. If
this firmware image is newer
than the one installed on the
printer and the printer can
receive a firmware update,
download the newer firmware
upgrade. Not all printer
models can receive firmware
upgrades.
If still no joy replace the formatter (this is the normal coarse of action)
