Printer Error 79.4165

I recently upgraded my printer server from nt4.0 to 2k. I have about 200 hp4050n printers. For whatever reason am getting a error 79.4165 printer error at random on selected printers. I was able to clear the error by rebooting the printer a few times. It's very wierd.
I know it's not hardware related.
Does not anyone have any suggestions, or have this happen to anyone.

Re: Printer Error 79.4165

79 errors are usually related to hardware errors, and in most cases you will not get it if you unplug the printer from the network.
However, application or specific files might also cause this problem.

I suggest you check the spooler to see what was printed when you got that error, as it might be related to either a specific file or an application.

Re: Printer Error 79.4165

Tony,
we had this exact same thing happen here at work. the key is you upgraded from nt 4 print queues to win 2k print queues. we used the migrat.bat found on technet. my suggestion is this, rebuild your print queues from scratch. the 79 error on one of the machines (79 (E040) was related to our formatter board which was replaced. The error that you are eluding to is most likely from your print server migration.

Re: Printer Error 79.4165

I am having a similar problem.
I have a windows workgroup LAN with 98 an XP clients. No print queue or print server other than the HP Jetdirect in my HPLJ 8000DN. All of a sudden we're getting 79.4165 errors. I have replaced the jetdirect card, and have done everything that I know to do. I finally called HP and paid my $25 and they are telling me the toner cartridge which is a third party, "Rhinotek" is causing the problem. (I have someone getting me an HP toner cartridge as I type). I'm hoping this will take care of it. Anyone else have a similar problem...or fix?!
Thanks.

Re: Printer Error 79.4165

Well, gues what? It worked! We replaced the "Rhinotek" with an HP toner cart and the error went away!
Just FYI.
Later.

Re: Printer Error 79.4165

I also receive the error on our HP4050 with an external Jet Direct box. I'd have to disagree on the toner solution - we use only HP product and still have the issue. We're not sure at the moment on the solution.
