The 59.F0 error shows up on mid-volume HP Color LaserJet printers and usually requires a new transfer belt assembly replacement. If a 59.F0 error shows up on your HP M477, M377, or M452, you may be able to fix the problem with a firmware upgrade.

If your HP M477, M377 or M452 printer has a USB port in front, you can use a thumb drive to do this update.  If not, consider finding someone who understands computers (your IT person) to upgrade the firmware on your printer. You will need the firmware file to begin with. You can download it from a Dropbox here:

   Then, follow these directions:

  1. Put the file in the root of a USB drive.
  2. Insert the thumb drive into your printer’s USB port in the front.
  3. Touch the “home” button on the printer’s control panel.
  4. Select “USB” on the printer’s control panel.
  5. Select “Print Documents” on the printer’s control panel.
  6. Select the file, which you downloaded and saved to the USB drive.
  7. You should see a screen that says “Printing Started.”
  8. Then you’ll see a screen asking if you want to print another file.  Select “No.”
  9. If you had a persistent 59.F0 error, the screen will go back to that.  DO NOT turn the printer off.  You must wait for the firmware to upgrade, which is happening in the background.  It should take about five minutes.  During this time, walk away.  Don’t touch the machine.  If you do, you will ruin the formatter and be stuck with a worthless machine.
  10. The machine will reboot, and your error will be gone.

That’s it!

If this firmware update does not solve your 59.F0 error, you will need to have a new transfer belt installed.
