Question about HP LaserJet 5m Printer
I have an HP LaserJet 5M. Gradually the memory seemed to get worse, because it would print one page, or the first few test lines of one page, and then print its page saying "This job requires more memory than is available in this printer." It then says several things to try, but the first two I can't find in the Owner's Manual.
They are "For the output format, choose Optimize for Portability.
"In the Device Settings page, make sure the Available PostScript Memory is accurate."
I did find how to Clear Memory and Reset Memory to factory defaults, but that didn't help.
On the Self Test/Configuration page I noticed I have small memory values compared to values in the Manual's example page. My I/O Buffering memory is 60 time less than on the sample page, and Resource Saving is not enabled at all because an additional 2 Mbytes are needed.
I did not try to reset I/O Buffering on the Menu. And I will get another toner cartridge, although that doesn't seem to be the problem.
I'm a 66 year old guy with little computer expertise. Should I take this
printer to a repair shop? I have a directory of good ones, but not my own car to carry it.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
