Most common cause of the error on this printer is the memory on the CPB (copy processing board) is bad. This board is picky about memory and typically only works with the actual HP memory designed for it. The easiest fix is to use the memory that is currently installed on the formatter, which is identical, and purchase 3rd party memory for the formatter, which will support any compatible memory.
62.0 memory error. This error indicates that the memory that is soldered to the formatter is likely bad. If the error was 62.1 or 62.2 that would indicate that the memory in one of the upgrade slots was bad. The only real solution to 62.0 will be to replace the formatter.
Regarding Gibberish printing or say garbage printing, If the above utility does not fix this issue, probably the printer drivers are corrupted, and you may have to uninstall the printer software from your pc and download and reinstall the latest drivers. this link below will let you choose the operating system of your PC and download the drivers
If the printer freezes or crashes at memory count or if the printer shows error Mem test failure replace DIMM or if the printer display is completely blank in that case obviuosly you can try reseating Mmeory Module.
However that doesn't fix the problem formatter board is faulty.
Need to get Formatter replaced.
Your posting is a little unclear, but let me answer with the information you have provided.
You have a brother multifunction printer and you have instructions for adding memory.
the memory in the printer is referred to as "volitile" which means that it holds informaiton as long as there is electricity put to it. If you would like to clear the memory, simply unplug the machine for about 30 seconds.
if you have a problem and are being directed to fix that problem by adding memory, then the print job that you are sending to the printer is too large for the amount you have loaded in it.
If the printer has additional memory, remove the memory and reboot
the printer. If the printer initializes, the ram memory may be
defective. Try reseating the optional memory, if unit fails to
initialize, memory option is defective. If the printer does not
have any additional memory, this "RAM CHECK" condition is probably
being caused by a low voltage power supply problem. It is recommended
to replace the low voltage power supply - part number 41991601.
Add memory to the machine and it should resolve your issues. The 2840 comes with 96MB built-in and has one slot open for additional memory located under the right side cover. It can take a max of 224MB total. I would recommend adding a 128MB memory card to max out the machine. It takes 100 pin, 133MHz, SDRAM.
Don't by it from HP as they list it at $500.00 or so. Buy the clone memory for around $25.00 for 128MB.
