What you will see

A 900.80 firmware error is displayed when performing any function with the scanner and occasionally this may be seen when turning on the printer. 

A possible secondary crash code: 565 Scanmgr.Main 0400-0000 doapps/scanmgr2/scanner/PRJ/PRJScanner.cpp-1409: rc=110 or Process Scanmgr.Main:1200 ca\ ught SIGSEGV@PANEL 900.80 Firmware Error



In general, most 900.80 firmware errors occur after a scan has been initiated but the scan destination (e.g., thumb drive, network folder, etc.) cannot successfully receive the scanned output, thus leading to a scan data overflow.


Possible causes

The following scenarios may cause the error:

  • A user removes the thumb drive during a scan.
  • A user disconnects a network cable during a scan.
  • A server fails during a scan to network operation.
  • A server fills up during a scan to network operation.
  • A server slows down significantly during a scan to network operation.
  • A hard drive fails during a scan operation that uses the internal hard drive (e.g., copy collation, background processing).
  • Memory fails during a scan (e.g., scanner memory, system card memory).
  • A cable or connector is loose or defective between scanner and system card; thus the scan data may be corrupted and not receivable.
  • An application bug that fails to prepare and receive scan data that it has requested without an overflow.
  • An application bug that fails to receive scan data at a rate to avoid an overflow.
  • A firmware bug that fails to prepare print path for handling the scan copy data without an overflow.
  • A firmware bug that fails to handle scanner jams in a timely manner leading to scan data overflow.
