Re: Optra R+ Memory Upgrade
Make sure the printer has no power before changing memory. Turn off printer, unplug printer and disconnect from computer. It is also a good idea to leave with power off up to 24 hours drain capacitor power as a added precaution.
Try raising the top of the printer up. ( There is a small handle underneath the front that you squeeze which releases the top latch, while lifting up.)
On the right side on top there is a metal bar with a blue sticker next to the print ID. (Push this lever down to release the latch which opens the right side panel.)
Inside you will see the memory slots. (Two running horizontally on top left of control panel and two more running vertically down from top left side of control panel.) ( This is the older type that interlocks with a clip, just lift up from the control panel and then pull out of slot.) (Align the memory to be installed, slide into slot and push toward control panel to lock in place.)

This is all you need to upgrade your copier to a network printer/scanner and fax. Good Luck.

Memory Upgrade for Dell Color Laser Printer
3100cn Printers, the Dell Color Laser Printer 3100cn Printers takes the
PC133 SDRAM SODIMMs Memory Type, and comes installed with 64 MB
(non-removable) of Memory. You can upgrade your Dell Color Laser
Printer 3100cn Printers to up to a maximum of 576 MB Memory, the system
has 1 socket to install Memory, already with 64 MB (non-removable)
standard Memory installed.
Assuming that you have the Brother HL-1440, your printer comes with 2MB installed. You may upgrade it up to 32MB maximum. However, your printer appears to use SIMM memory modules. The specs for the printer should be: Speed: 60-80 nsec Pin: 72-pin Output: 32 or 36 bit
To install the memory:
1. Turn off the printer an dunplug the power cord from the AC outlet. Disconnect the interface cable from the printer. 2. Open the rear cover by unscrewing the two screws that secure the access cover and remove the cover. 3. When handling your SIMM modules, pay close attention to static electricity discharges, so be careful and hold the SIMM by the sides. 4. Install the SIMM into the slot at an angle, and then push it gently toward vertical alignment, it should click when it goes into place. DONT FORCE IT IN, be careful 5. Re-install the access cover and secure it with the screws. 6. Close the rear cover 7. Reconnect the interface cable, power cable and turn on the printer.
The 'flushing buffer' is most likely due to a corrupt file or file to large for the printer memory.
You can check the file size and reduce it. Also you might want to upgrade your memory for the printer.
Also might want to check your printer settings if the page you are having trouble printing is different from the other pages printed, such as text & graphics, etc.
There is also a possibly of print program incompatibility or Windows OS Patch required but I doubt this since you have printed other pages without any problem.

Or, if you need the Lexmark user's guide & reference guide:
The Designjet 500 did not have a direct memory upgrade slot. You will have to purchase a HPGL2 (formatter) card first. This then has a memory slot on it for further upgrades. The plotter had 32Mb memory on board, the card another 32Mb and then you can upgrade by a further 64Mb (waste of money) or the best is 128Mb. This is then added to your original Ram giving you approx 164Mb which is then normally more than enough. The HPGL2 (formatter) card is sold by any HP supplier on order only. Part number is C7772A. Standing in front of the plotter its located in the left side at the back. Look behind the left cover and you will see a small cover in a sort of L shape near where the roll holder slots in, thats it, slip the small cover open (you will see an arrow on it showing how to open it), look if there are any additional cards in the machine, if not it means you still need to buy the card, otherwise you will simply need the RAM.
