Printer Error 49
How does Printer error “49” occur? How do you get rid of it?
Printer error “49.XXX” is one of the bugs that can occur while printing a document. It can occur due to a number of reasons including corrupted data, invalid print commands, bad software and loose cable connections. Being a type of firmware error, it is difficult to point what caused the error. The error can turn out to be quite a hassle, because if Printer error “49” happens once, it will most likely happen again.
Printer error “49” can be resolved in the following ways:
- By removing Dual Inline Memory Modules and Enhanced Input/Output cards
- Resolving issues with printer’s drivers
- Resolving issues with formatter board
By removing Dual Inline Memory Modules and Enhanced Input/Output cards
Printer error “49” can be resolved by removing all DIMMs and EIOs, if you have them. Dual Inline Memory Modules and Enhanced Input/output cards may cause problems if they are not compatible with your printer. Afterwards, restart your printer. If Printer error “49” does not occur when these are out, put them in again, one piece at a time, and replace whichever causes the error.
Resolving issues with printer’s drivers
If Printer error “49” still shows up, the problem may have something to do with the drivers of the printer. Drivers are programs that provide a set of instructions to the printer to follow. When corrupted or changed, several errors aside from ‘Printer error” 49” may occur. In this case, open the Control panel and click on the icon for Printers and Other Hardware. Another window will pop-out. Choose the icon for Printers and Faxes, then open the file menu and check on the server properties. There will be a tab for drivers. Clicking on this will show the settings of the drivers. The correct settings can be found either online, or inside the manual your printer arrived with. If it differs in anyway, change the settings
Resolving issues with formatter board
If all of the above fail, it may be that your printer’s formatter board is malfunctioning. Formatter board is a large chip found inside the printer. It processes information and then directs it to the proper component. If the board breaks, then corrupted data is generated which in turn can cause Printer error “49”.
However, it is best to take professional help who will assist you to resolve the problem.
