79.060E printer error on HP LJ 8150N

When printing some large Powerpoint presentations occasionally the printer will stop in the middle of printing and display 79.060E printer error on the display. The only way out of it is to cycle the power. Can anyone tell me exactly what this error means?

John,

I believe the 79.x error points to JetDirect firmware. Is the JD firmware up to date?

It would not hurt, at the same time to update the firmware of the 8150 printer itself.

Both of these can be done with Web JetAdmin ver. 7.2.

Please post back if you need more detail. Include the model info of the JD.

:-) Jay

Updated the firmware but still got the error. I had the user take a closer look at the Powerpoint presentations they were having trouble with and it turns out there were problems with a few slides. They had images covering other images. The slides were fixed and the errors went away also.

could have been just the printer's way of telling you "Out of memory" :)

I have seen this problem when printing slides with certain driver, just don't remember if it was PCL5, PCL6 or PS. I think they vanished when I used the other driver.
