SOURCE: What is a PCL Error Press Set?

This is a somewhat generic error. It may indicate a problem printing that specific job (document). Sometimes a large or complex job can produce such an error such as a graphic intensive Word document or a large PDF.

You will want to first cancel any pending jobs.
Press Set on the printer.
Turn the printer off, wait 30 seconds, then turn it back on.
It doesn't hurt to restart your computer, too.

You can try printing the job again. If the same error is produced, try printing it from another application or from another computer. If that still fails, try printing the documents in smaller chunks. If the document is 100 pages long, try 25 at a time.

If the problem persists, you may want to consider how it is connected to your computer. If you are using a parallel port cable (fat cable with fat connectors on each end) you may want to switch to a USB connection. You will likely have to reinstall the printer using the driver CD that came in the box or by downloading the drivers from Dell's website. Though, if you have a newer operating system such as Windows 7 it may install automatically.

My printer says "out of Memory" press set. I have no idea where set is .I have never seen this before. the unit is a Dell Laser 3000cm


"Set" is the round button in the center of the control panel on the printer.

I have 192M of memory in mine, and haven't ever hit the out of memory error, and I use the PCL driver not the PS one.

Is there something complex about the document you're trying to print?

I have an HP Color LaserJet 3800 printer. I am trying to print a document and it keeps printing: PCL XL error Subsystem: GEDI Error: MemA L LocError Operator: ReadImage Position: 743


That means that the printer does not have sufficient memory tp [rint the document, if it is a text document (eg word) try to print pages in groups, if it is a different document try the following:
" I receive a 'PCL XL error' on my HP 4100mfp when making a 2 page copy as one page in duplex? Why?
The problem is related to a printer memory problem.

If following parameters are set in the HP 4100mfp you will receive and 'Insufficient Memory" error.
1) In 'COPYING' the 'IMAGE QUALITY' is set to 'BEST'
2) In 'ORIGINALS' the 'CONTENT' is set to 'PHOTO'

Following error message is printed:

PCL XL error

Subsystem: GEDI
Error: InsufficientMemory
Operator: EndSession
Position: 32

The solution is to set 'CONTENT' to 'MIXED' or 'TEXT' or set 'IMAGE QUALITY' to 'NORMAL' or you can add additional memory to the HP 4100mfp. "

Ram disk


Stangowner, In this case, the print job is too large for the available printer memory. Your choices are one of the following: Press to clear the message, cancel the current print job, and conduct the next print job, if any. · Press Cancel to cancel the current print job. · Press Menu to open the Stored Print and delete the current job. To avoid this error in the future, do the following: · Reduce the number of print pages such as splitting the print data. · Increase free memory space by deleting unnecessary data in the RAM disk. As for the RAM disk: When you send a job to the printer, you can specify in the driver that you want the printer to hold the job in memory. When you are ready to print the job, you must go to the printer and use the operator panel menus to identify which job in the memory you want to print. You can use this function to print a confidential job (Secure Print), or verify one copy before printing additional copies (Proof Print). NOTE: The printer holds the job until you delete it by using the operator panel or you turn off the printer. (This is the RAM disk) NOTE: Print and Hold functions require a minimum of 320 MB available printer memory. Also, you need to configure the RAM disk settings on either the OPERATOR PANEL OR THE PRINTER DRIVER. NOTE: Depending on the documents, its job may be too big for the available memory. In this case, an error occurs. Take this link and print it out. It will help you later when you get "other" error messages. http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/3100cn/en/UG/section19.html And here's a link for more "operational" situations. http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/3100cn/en/UG/section16.html#1087088 ZT3000 "Beta tester of "0"s and "1's"
