Please read this post then provide some details.  What printer model? What operating system? How is the printer connected - USB, wired LAN, Wireless LAN, bluetooth?

Is the error message from the computer installer rather than on the printer screen?

 

Do you have an AMD C50 processor?  If so the patch here may help.

This is a Windows error code, basically WIndows failed to connect to the printer. Need more information on what printer, how are you connecting it, which OS, etc.
