Product: HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M283fdw

I have been getting Service Error 79 on my  HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M283fdw. 

 

Tried all options listed here such as disabling IPV6, restarting, upgrading firmware, etc, but the service error 79 keeps coming and the Printer keeps rebooting - almost in a loop. It comes back up, stays for some time, and restarts 

 

 

 
 
  • My HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M283fdw has Service error 79 and goes through endless loops of restarting. In the odd times it seems stable it can scan or photocopy, but is "offline" to the pc for printing. Running all the self-help and diagnostics can not find or fix the fault. The firmware is up to date. I gather a full reset is in order but I do not know how to do this. I have uninstalled both pc software and the printer and gone through the setup process several times. I am disappointed as this printer was not cheap and I have spare cartridges too which are printer specific. If I have to retire the printer will have been an expensive misadventure and once bitten twice shy.

It is very possible that you have a corrupt print jog that keeps crashing the printer. Please follow the instruction in the link below to complete purge any pending print jobs and then see if the error returns when you connect the printer. If it does not, then that is the problem and you will need to figure out if this was a bad job or bad driver. If the error still returns you most likely have a bad formatter on the printer.

If you disconnect all network and usb including wireless, will the device come to ready?

It will turn on and initialise. However, as soon as you connect to a pc either by RJ45 or USB and try and print the Error 79  message occurs and the printer shuts down and reboots.

Many Thanks. That seems to have done the trick so far. If that has solved it then I am very grateful. I have been able to print off the advice for the Print Spooler in case it happens again. Best wishes, Alistair.
