HP LASERJET PRO 200 COLOR M276nw 59.C0 error

HP Recommended
Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan

Help!  My printer ran out of paper during a print job.  I powered off the printer, replaced the paper, and turned it back on.  Came up with the 59.C0 error.  I have powered it off several times, pulled the power cord and waited at least 5 minutes each time.

The unit does not have a surge arrester.  I have checked each of the toner cartridges and made sure they are seated.  No luck.  It doesn't make any strange noises...


Is there any other troubleshooting I can do?  I've had no problems until this point.


Thanks in advance!

Hi @fischer94563


Welcome to HP Forums. This is a great place to get support, find answers and tips.


I understand that the Printer is stuck on the 59.C0 error.


I could help.


I appreciate all the troubleshooting steps you attempted.


Once again try a Printer Reset.


(1) Turn the printer on, if it is not already on.
(2) Wait until the printer is idle and silent before you continue.
(3) With the printer turned on, disconnect the power cord from the rear of the printer.
(4) Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.
(5) Wait at least 60 seconds.
(6) Plug the power cord back into the wall outlet.
 NOTE: HP recommends connecting the printer power cord directly to the wall outlet.
(7) Reconnect the power cord to the rear of the printer.
(8) Turn on the printer, if it does not automatically turn on.

The printer might go through a warm-up period. The printer lights might flash, and the carriage might move.
Wait until the warm-up period finishes and your printer is idle and silent before you proceed.

If the Reset doesn't work, We will attempt an NVRAM Initialization.


Since the Steps for the NVRAM Initialization are crucial, I will send you a Private Message with the instructions.


Can you please check your inbox on the Forums page for the private message.

Thank you. 🙂

Performed NVRAM init twice now.  Still comes up with the same 59.C0 error.

Does anyone know what this error indicates?

Thanks for your comments KrazyToad!

Something bad and not an easy job to fix it.

There's a sticky solenoid causes the black/color match timing wrong.

If you can just clean the sticky thing off it will fine and put a piece paper inbetween instead will be better.

Not an easy job to do.



Check here on youtube, not same models but same problems.

By the way, there's no need to take motor and gears assembly off , just use Q-tip and alcohol will be done.

But the solonoid is hiding in deep of the gears not easy to be found.

You can check it by seeing  Replies (12) 's picture it's rery close to where it is.

Important: 25min 40sec white gears position.Remove the brown sponge from the solenoid and glue there a thin plastic piece.CM4540 is very similar.UPDATE!!!: ...
