This means the memory test process failed due to a bad module. DIMM ( Dual In-line Memory Module ) is the memory of your printer. It is really similar to computer RAM (memory).
If the printer is under warranty I would contact the manufacturer for a repair/replacement. If it is not, I would still contact them and get further information on what DIMM you would need to purchase to replace the bad one.
Hope this helps!
you need to reset the cmos to recognize the ram, this is done by removing the cmos battery and joining conductive wire to the pos and neg term where the battery sits, earth out for at least 6 seconds, this takes place after inserting new ram, hope this helps
Mem test failure replace Dimm 0 or Mem test failure replace Dimm 1
If either of the are the messages displayed, the problem lies with the mother board (formatter).
DIMM 0 = On Board Memory - cannot be changed.
DIMM 1 = Add On Ram - Can be Changed
Make Sure the printer firmware is up to date FIRMWARE
Most Likely the formatter board would require replacing.
Did you remove the "old" RAM, or did you add the "new" RAM to the old RAM?
Try using your computer with ONLY the "new" RAM installed.
Try using your computer with ONLY the "old" RAM installed.
Try using your computer with the "new" RAM in the 1st slot, and the "old" RAM in the 2nd slot.
Try using your computer with the "old" RAM in the 1st slot, and the "new" RAM in the 2nd slot.
Try turning the computer on without the new memory stick in. If that works, it's either the new memory stick is not plugged all the way in (most probable), the new memory stick is not compatible with your computer (highly unlikely since I'm sure you checked compatibility first).
Best way to put a mem stick in is to hold it on top and push it firmly downwards until the clips that secures the mem stick click in place. :)
hey First of all kindly specify what how many rams slots and how many ram chips are there like 1 X 4GB or 2 X 2 GB Generally, with RAM there can be a few problems 1) the frequency of ram whichmotherboard supports might be less than the freq at which the ramyou are puttin works, hence in this case RAM wont work on this motherboard and ull have to get the RAM replaced 2) some motherboards donot support a 1 x 4 GB RAM where as they might support a 2 X 2 RAM (ifyou do have 2 mem slots for ram) and then there is the mosttrivial problem of the slot not being clean or arm not being putproperly, i can think of ne other reason for the ram not workingproperly..
