How do I remove the memory chip from this printer so it can be donated?

    I was told more details might help get comments. We wanted to donate our printer to Goodwill, but they refused it due to a memory card that might have private information on it. I just need to know how to remove the memory so we can get rid of it!

Printers - donate or destroy and trash


Many printers do store the last page printed, this can be cleared by printing a blank page. Generally though, printers have no way of storing mass amounts of personal data. If your printer has an LCD display built-in you can look for a factory reset option.

Supply memory error


Remove cartridge, observe a small chip mounted on cartridge shell..This chip calculates the approximate toner levels, once its reached "Zero" printer says cartridge empty/low replace it.. If the memory is not detected due to any reason printer will say supply error or 10:xx supply error..
Replace this memory if available( locally its available ) or replace the cartridge.. Very few cases same error appears with faulty DC controller..

10.1000 memory error


Thank you for contacting FixYa with your printer inquiry.
This error is normally associated with a supplies error. I have extracted information on this error from the HP 6L manual.

Error Codes
Error 10 - Supplies Memory Error 10.XX.YY Exact format is dependent on printer model
    The printer is unable to read the electronic information (elabel) on the print cartridge. This helps track page count and life of consumable.
    XX Description 00 memory error on the cartridge or 01 memory device not found
    10.00.00 Black print cartridge
    10.00.01 Cyan print cartridge
    10.00.02 Magenta print cartridge
    10.00.03 Yellow print cartridge

  1. Supplies used in newer printer models contain a memory chip. The information contained on this chip is dependent on the printer model and the supply. The error 10 indicates a problem with the printer obtaining the information from this chip. The chip may be missing or defective or contain incorrect information. There may be a problem with connection between the memory chip and DC controller. Turn the printer off/on to attempt to clear or reset the message. Remove and reinstall the supply, replace the supply.
  2. Replace the memory chip cable/connector or the DC controller.
    How did we do?
Hope this helps helps. Please keep us updated and remember to rate this answer.

I have an error code C-D201 after removing fax option


CD201 = File Memory Mounting Error. On most Minolta's there is also a memory chip that goes with the fax option. Most likely this error is from you removing only part of the fax option. There is still a memory / dimm chip still installed that should not be.

Memory error 100000


This indicates that the Black Cartridge has a memory chip error or is missing. You will need to remove the cartridge and make sure there is no protective covering over the chip area orf the cartridge and then reinstall it. If the issue persists then try using a new cartridge and if it still persists you will need to call a service engineer or take the unit to a repair shop.

Erase faxes in memory


I had the same problem and wanted to remove confidential faxes from memory in order to be able to sell or donate old T45. Manual does NOT help.

My solution is based on fact that I have a separate FAX and voice line. I connected my Windows machine (which has a fax/data modem) to my voice line and faxed a large (80 page) software manual to the fax machine. This fills the available memory, thus erasing the old documents. (To save paper, remove paper supply first, the fax machine will still receive and store the document.)
