79 service error

We have a new color printer ,  CP5225.  It displayed the 79 service error when printing some special document like jpg, doc.

I expect to know  the reason and how to get it?

Try updating the firmware.

Re: 79 service error

You can also try an NVRAM reset to see if it does the job. In order to do this you would need to power off the printer, press and hold the right arrow and the X buttons while powering on, release the buttons when the display shows "permanent storage initialization". Like I said before you can try this in case the firmware update does not work.


Hope this helps....
