It means you need to replace the memory chip inside of the printer...which requires taking the printer apart and messing about with it....your best bet is to call a service technician to look at it and take care of the job.

What does it mean when printer replace tonerclean [printer

I guess it means that the toner cartridge needs to be replaced and the innards of the printer need to be cleaned. You may have a printer that has sensors communicationg the state of the toenr cartridge and the interioor of the device. If the cartridge has allowed contamination the printer may have sensed this and is letting you know what the procedure is for you to get it working again

The printer says memory failure "Replace Dimm1"

Dimm1 refers to the Memory module installed in Dimmm1.

It looks like a RAM module that is found in a computer.

In your case you may be able to solve the problem by ensuring that the module is making good contact, push it in.
You could also try removing the module and cleaning the gold finger contacts with tissue paper and then reinstalling.

If all else fails you will need to purchase and install a new Memory Module for your printer.
See the manual in this regard!

Take care!

I just changed my yellow ink and printer is still saying no cartilage need to replace

Hi there,
No Cartridge will show on the display if the machine cannot recognize one of the cartridge or one of the ink is empty. Try to unplug the mach from the power outlet then plug it back in after 10 seconds. If the display show "ink empty C" it means the cyan/blue needs to be replace. "ink empty M" it means the magenta/pink needs to be replace. "ink empty BK" it means that the black needs to replace.
Hope this helps. Rate if it works. Thanks

Don't know what the red light means.

that normally means there's a problem with the printer somewhere. Like toner/waste being in need of replacement. Are any other lights flashing?

Error message saying parts have come to the end of their life. Does this mean the whole printer needs replacing

It mean waste ink pad full. Epson stop to prin to prevent waste ink flow from pad to other (power supply is nearest part). Replace pad, or wash pad. Or just extend outlet pipe to outside of printer. You must reset waste ink counter to make printer work again. Use SSC utility to rset it. Find at

All 3 Error lights are flashing (4 if you count the GO button)!!

When all lights flash it's a service problem. You press and hold the go button and see what lights are on then.error light means main PCB failure, Toner light means fuser failure, drum light means laser failure. Toner and error light means main motor error, drum plus error light means its a fan failure.
