    Question HP 5550dtn RFU Load Error

    Hi,

    Wasn't sure where to put this so the hardware section seemed most appropriate.

    We have a HP 5550dtn here at work which is displaying an error message on screen:
    Downld file now
    RFU LOAD ERROR
    RESEND RFU OVER
    PARALLEL PORT

    This message is displayed AFTER memory has been checked. Whilst browsing the internet somebody posted a fix - a fix I tried that didn't work. It's too long to write out on here but the general gist of it is that you tell the printer to "ignore" RFU errors.
    Anybody got any ideas?
    Thanks in advance
    Bryn

    No, it wasn't. And that fix didn't work. Looks like I'm going to have to re-flash the firmware. Now to hunt round for a PC with a parallel port... And then to find the RFU file on the HP site... I'm in for a fun day.

    I looked at that - didn't see the firmware file I needed? Please tell me I'm not being that thick today!?!? Waiting for the Christmas holidays...

    mmm, I found that before. Clicked the link though, clicked firmware and there are just links to the hp main site.

    Hmm, an hour plus on the phone to HP and the software they have sent me doesn't work... Apparently I might need Windows XP, despite the fact that the guy from HP was using 7. Why would I need XP then? He didn't know. I lost the world to live yesterday so it's now an after Christmas job. I'll let you know how I get on...
