HP 79 Service codes

HP 79 Service codes

Does anyone know what the problem is if a HP 4050N printer generates the code: 79,4165 ?

I know that the general category for 79 service calls suggest that yu replace the formatter PCB board, but I wanted to have some additional insight.

RE: HP 79 Service codes

79 error generally mean that the printer was asked to do some process that it couldn't figure out how to do - a typical one is when you print some odd sort of font and the printer is trying to bitmap it, but the instructions it receives don't seem to make sense.
graphics can do the same thing. Or there is third-party memory that isn't functioning properly with t he printer. So although it can be a hardware issue, it isn't always.
