Quick fix

After being idle or off the 900 Firmware's error is indicated when the printer starts printing.

The 900 error only appears when the printer is receiving information from a computer or network. Contact your local helpdesk or software/network support first. This is due to a communication problem with the software or your network.

However, if the error occurs when the printer is idle or not connected to the network or PC, there might be a hardware or connection problem. Sometimes a bad connection with an internal network adapter/card can cause this issue

Fortnite is one of the biggest online games of our time. With over 125 million users since its introduction on multiple platforms, bugs develop from time to time.

Maintenance and planned outages, though not as common, are sometimes communicated by the publisher or developer in advance.
