HP 5Si/MX error 79

Our HP laserjet 5Si/MX has started displaying the following error codes

Line = 1543
79 Service (9208)

Is this software/hardware? where do I find the explanation of (9208). As far as I am aware there has been no software changes, although our PDC/printer server's PSU burnt out and blew the fuse on the UPS; all other software is running fine. The error message is cleared on shutdown/power-up, but returns within a few print jobs

Don't know what 9208 means, only HP does. Did you type 79 in our search engine or look at our troubleshooting section?

Does the printer have a jet direct card installed if so remove it and turn on the printer if no error 79 turn off the printer and reseat jet direct card turn back on if error reappears you have a bad jet direct card.

Do you realize you are answering a 6 1/2 year old post. I would think if they did not fix the issue by now the printer would be in a landfill. - dmzcompute
