This is a random note.
For months/years now, our primary student printer here at work has gotten random 49.ff08 errors that require removing the job from the print server, and cycling the power on the printer. We haven’t been able to find a cause, and firmware updates of both the JetDirect and Printer have resulted in no change.
So, last week, I got a 512MB stick of ram for the printer, installed it (replacing the 128MB OEM stick that was in there), and the issue has gone away. We haven’t had the problem in a about a week, which is a record.
Now, I’m not sure if this was due to the OEM stick being faulty, or 128MB not being enough memory for the jobs the printer was receiving, but all and all, I’m happy. After upgrading, I did find a place in the manual that says if you’re printing a lot of duplex jobs, or jobs on 11×17, then more than the stock 128MB is suggested. Wow, go figure, all we print are duplex jobs, and a lot of 11×17.
So, for anyone else that is having this problem, go buy more memory for your 9050 and give that a try.
Here’s the memory we used (from Provantage) : Kingston LJ9050/512
