Error 79.2F83 on HP4100

I get this error message all the time. I reset all the memory chips and still get the message. How can I fix this? The printer has 48MB RAM, 2 extra paper trays.

Re: Error 79.2F83 on HP4100



The message 79 indicates an unexpected firmware error was encountered. Document the error message. The numeric code displayed indicates a specific error for service personnel. Error 79 can also be caused by incorrect memory addressing to a font cartridge or memory card. Remove any installed font or personality cartridges (or memory expansion cards). Turn the printer back on. If the message persists, consult service. This error can also be software related. Ensure that the error is occurring consistently before servicing the printer. A defective toner cartridge can also cause this problem (4Plus only).
