Re: HP LJ P4010 Error: "Unable to store job at printer"

At the computer (I'm assuming Windows?), open the Printer Properties and click the Device Settings tab.  Near the bottom of the list of options is an item referring to "Job Storage".  Set that to "Disabled".  Also, If  "Printer Hard Disk" is set to "Installed", change it to "Not Installed".  Click OK to save your changes.

 

The error you described happens when the print job is sent with Job Storage and/or Hard Disk options enabled which causes the printer to attempt to either store the print job or to buffer it to a hard disk ... and without a hard disk installed in your printer and/or insufficient RAM in the printer for job storage ... it just cannot do it, but will try to anyway if the driver says those options are there.

You are using the correct driver for the P4010?
