Printer repeatedly keeps trying to initialize but stops with the 79 error message
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
What am I doing wrong?
Technician: Shefin, Printer and Office Equip. Specialist replied 11 months ago

Hi,

The error shows the product has experienced a firmware error. The printer needs service. Is the printer in warranty?

If the printer is not in warranty, check if you are able to do the following.

1. Press the power button to turn the product off.

2. If a surge protector is in use, remove it. Connect the power cord directly into a wall outlet.

3. Wait at least 30 seconds, turn the product on, and then wait for the product to initialize.

4. If the error persists, disconnect and then reconnect the FFCs and the connectors on the formatter PCA.

5. If the issue persists, replace the formatter PCA.

If the issue persists, or you have any questions, please be back and let me know.

Ok, What is the FCC and PCA?
Technician: Shefin, Printer and Office Equip. Specialist replied 11 months ago

Hi,

FFC is Flat Film Cable. Formatter PCA is a circuit board that controls the logic, receives the data from the computer, and breaks it down into a printable format. Issues print commands to the DC controller / engine controller.

You will not be able to replace these parts. You have to contact a local technician in order to do that.

Please know that not all issues can be fixed online; in those cases of a hardware failure, I’ll troubleshoot and diagnose the problem, and provide a practical recommendation for how to proceed.

Thank you.

Is my problem a hardware problem? If so you cannot repair it by remote control. Please let me know. I have a local repair shop. Glen
Technician: Shefin, Printer and Office Equip. Specialist replied 11 months ago

Hi,

Please disconnect the printer from the computer. Then, unplug the power cable too.

Wait for two minutes and plugin the power cable. Do not connect with the computer and turn it on.

Check if you see the error without connecting with the computer.

Thank you.

Do not see the error with the computer disconnected
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Deleted print jobs in the print cue and fixed the problem. Thanks anyway Glen
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Did you get my last message about fixing the problem? If so please acknowledge. Glen
Technician: Shefin, Printer and Office Equip. Specialist replied 11 months ago

Hi,

I am glad to hear that. If that is not resolved by clearing the print queue, you may have to get it for repair. That is why I asked if the issue persists without connected to the computer.

If you have any issues, please be back.

No, When i disconnected the computer the problem went away. That's how i knew it wasn't the printer. So after clearing the print que everything was fixed. Glen
Technician: Shefin, Printer and Office Equip. Specialist replied 11 months ago

Hi,

What I was saying is, to check the printer without connected to the computer.

However, if the issue persisted even after disconnecting the computer, you would have to take it for repair.

Thank you.
