Memory low message on hp laserjet pro 200


see HP LaserJet Pro Printers Memory is Low message displayed on the control...

HP LaserJet Pro Printers - 'Memory is Low' message displayed on the control panel HP LaserJet Pro - Troubleshoot 20.xx (memory failure) and 21.xx (print failure) error messages (ID: emr_na-c05049204)
HP Customer Support page and ensure the printer is running the latest available firmware. Print a Configuration Report from the control panel of the printer to check the installed firmware version.
  • If the printer supports expandable memory, you can install additional memory in the form of a DIMM. Check the printer's User Guide to see if it supports additional memory.
  • Break complex print jobs into smaller jobs that contain fewer pages.
  • If the printer is an MFP, delete stored faxes to increase available memory. Go to this document for instructions: HP LaserJet Pro MFP - Delete faxes from memory (ID: emr_na-c03264743)
  • Power cycle the printer to delete stored fonts or macros. It is possible to download fonts or macros in a way that power cycling the printer will not delete them; see Appendix A - Memory Allocation.
  • Changing some software and/or print driver settings might result in a less complex print job.
  • Use a different print driver. For example, a PostScript print driver will typically result in a more complex print file. If possible, try sending the file with a PCL6 or UPD printer driver.
  • Adobe PDF files can sometimes be very complex. Go to this document if printing PDF files is slow or resulting in memory out messages: HP LaserJet - Print job is slow or hangs in the print queue when printing Adobe PDF files (ID: emr_na-c04071740)
  • If the printer is connected via a network, try sending the file connected by USB cable only. This will eliminate possible network issues that are taking printer memory.
  • Appendix A
    Memory Allocation Utilities or jobs that you download to the product sometimes include resources (for example, fonts, macros, or patterns). Resources that are internally marked as permanent remain in the product memory until you turn the product off.
    Use the following guidelines if you use the page description language (PDL) ability to mark resources as permanent. For technical details, see an appropriate PDL reference for PCL or PS.
    • Mark resources as permanent only when it is absolutely necessary that they remain in memory while the product is turned on.
    • Send permanent resources to the product only at the beginning of a print job and not while the product is printing.
    NOTE: Overusing permanent resources or downloading them while the product is printing might affect product performance or the ability to print complex pages.

    www.hp.com/support/lj2430. Click Download Drivers and Software. Check for the latest firmware image version at the bottom of the page. If this firmware image is newer than the
    one installed on the printer and the printer can receive a firmware update,
    download the newer firmware upgrade. Not all printer models can

    4. Try printing a job from a different software program. If the job prints, go
    back to the first program and try printing a different file. If the message

    software vendor for assistance.

    1. After performing the actions listed in the preceding item, if the message

    4. Remove all of the EIO devices from the printer.

    6. If the error message disappears, reinstall each DIMM, Compact Flash card, and EIO device one at a time, making sure to turn the printer off and then on again (booting to the Ready
    prompt) as you install each device. To replace a DIMM, see Appendix D - Printer memory and expansion in the LaserJet 2400 Series User Guide.
    7. Replace the DIMM or EIO device that caused the error message.
    8. Remember to reconnect all of the cables that connect the printer to the
    network or computer.

    I am getting "memory is low/ insufficient memory" in my hp laserjet M2727 printer. what should I do?


    The internal memory is full try a nvram.

    1. Turn the printer off
    2. Hold down the right arrow and the cancel button
    3. Reboot the printer while holding the buttons and hold until permanent storage is displayed. Let go of the buttons and wait for the ready message on the display.

    This reset will clear all of your saved settings and contacts, if networked print out a configuration report after resetting the printer to view the ip address (IPV4). If the IP address has changed you will need to update the print driver's port tab and update the port.

    Low memory on hp laserjet 2420 printer


    If you are printing complicated graphics, you can easily run low on memory. Order a memory upgrade from HP or google your model to find cheaper memory dimms.
