Dell 5100cn - 016-302 error code

I've looked through all of the listings that I can find, but I can't find a reference to this error code.  016-317 points to unseated RAM, but that doesn't appear to be the problem here.  Any ideas?

Dell 3100 Here...same issue.

Followed steps outlined, updated firmware.

Same problem.

It will print through Windows and FTP. But when our Database software sends a printjob, it will print one page and then error out with "016-302 Restart Printer".

Every other printer we have ever hooked up to this works.

Any ideas?

Does your database application generate and send its own PCL or PS directly to the printer? Also, are you printing via a >7ft paralell cable. If its the former, then the application is sending the printer a PCL command it doesnt understand and puts the printer in a mode where it cant recover, if its the latter. I recommend a 100baseTX connection instead.

We also encountered this same error ( 016-302 ) on our 5100cn. It went away when the network connection was removed - so that gave me a clue. The thing that caused it was a combination of a bad .PPT ( powerpoint ) slide file created in Office 2003 / 2007 that was sent to the printer, and old firmware. Updating the Firmware to A06 ( 200610231537 ) solved the problems. NOTE: even though it seems that the program is "locked-up" while waiting for the NEXT button to appear ( you can keep Refreshing it ), you MUST give it several minutes AFTER it resets from the 1st part of the firmware update ( as it's a 2 part Firmware update !!!  ), so that it can also reprogram the MCU in the 2nd part of the update proceedure.
