SOURCE: 900.00 Service

When I have seen this error in the field, I have cured it by updating the firmware. Lexmark has a paper in their Knowledge Base on 900 errors:
http://support.lexmark.com/cgi-perl/knowledgebase.cgi?ccs=229:1:0:556:0:0&framed=&docid=ENUS22164&relevance=1

Go through the suggested steps to try to narrow the problem down.

But if it needs a firmware update:

http://support.lexmark.com/printerfirmware/

Use code: Isfap129 to download the package the C530dn.

Hope this helps!

I too ran into this problem. Printer is about 2-1/2 yrs old.
Using it as a network device. I updated firmware from
a Mac OS X computer on the network.

a. Uploaded the firmware by going to lexmark site.
Do this first in preparation of upgrading firmware.
Follow instructions to get firmware update.
b. power cycle the printer (turn off & unplug power from unit)
c. power printer and turn switch back ON.
happily printer stays alive long enough to upload the new
firmware update.
d. Log on to your printer via a computer on your network
Open a browser, address will be your printer's IP address
or dns name. ex: http://192.168.1.3 (note: if you password
protected the account, you will need that info)
e. Follow menu to Configure -> Update Code where you will
"browse" to the file on your local computer (ex:
LSSTN234.FLX) and then hit the FLASH button

SOURCE: What does 900 Service RIP Software error message

If the 900 error occurs only when the printer is receiving information from a network or computer, contact your software/network support. If the error occurs when the printer is idle or not connected to the network or PC, there may be a printer hardware or connection problem. Sometimes a bad connection with an Internal Network Adapter/Network Card can cause the problem. The first thing to check is the base printer. To check the base printer:

  1. Turn off the printer and disconnect every cable, except for the power cord.
  2. Turn on the printer and see if the error returns.
  3. If the error does not return, try to print a test page from the Test Menu.
    1. Press Menu > to enter Menus.
      Optra S series and Optra K series printers: Continue to press Menu > until you see TESTS MENU.
      Optra T and Lexmark T and W series printers: Continue to press Menu > until you see UTILITIES MENU.
    2. Press Select to view the menu items. TESTS/UTILITIES MENU is now on the first line of the display.
    3. Press the Menu > button until Print Menus appears on the second line.
    4. Press Select.
    5. If the display tells you to change paper, press Select or the GO button to print.
  4. If the test page prints correctly, the printer's hardware is most likely working correctly. The source of the problem is probably outside the base printer.
  5. If the 900 error occurs again before, during, or after the printing of the test page, remove all options (internal network adapters, optional feeders, second drawer options, finisher options, additional memory, etc.) from the printer.
  6. Then turn on the printer and try to print the test page. If it still posts the 900 error, the printer may need to be serviced.
  7. If the error does not return, then the problem may be with one of the options.
IMPORTANT: If you receive an Invalid Engine Code error message when you power the printer back on, there is a problem with the printer. An Invalid Engine Code condition will cause a 900 RIP Software Error message to appear if you try to use the printer. The Invalid Engine Code error means either that your printer has lost its stored operating code for the engine board or that the printer's engine board has gone out.

Error 900.44 .... RIP Software


The error relates to the system board / formatter.

R.I.P = Rest in Peace

Turn off machine for 10 minutes.

If error persists follow theses steps:

1. ) If the machine is networked disconnect the cable and power cycle. If the error doesn't come back up swap the network cable, with a good one.

2.) Firmware upgrade

3.) Replace the system board

Based on my experience it's either the network cable or the system board.

The error message on the display was error message is 900.00 service RIP software. When printing large data files, such as a PowerPoint presentation, the printer would error out.

Per Dell's recommendation I configured the virtual printer to not spool the print jobs and send them directly to the printer. This seems to have corrected the issue so far.

Since I have HP printers on the same print server and none of them have had any kind of issue printing the same large files, I starting to think that the problem is due to either bad printer hardware or print drivers from Dell.

Lexmark C510 not printing - message 900 service RIP software


Hi, This error could be due to several things, the most common one is that whatever is being sent from the computer is not being recognized by the printer causing the 900 Rip Soft Error. You can try to reset the printer and try sending the print job again. If the error persisted. Then the problem could be a hardware problem with the System Board.

I have a problem with t644 indicated 900.00 service rip software before this error printer indicated 960 service.after turn printer off then on error code indicated immediatly


Try this...power off printer. Then if it is a network printer go the to print server and clear all the documents from the print cue. If it is a local printer clear all documents in the local print cue then power the printer back on. Once the printer powers up the error should clear, if it doesn't clear power the unit back off and ensure that all documents have been removed from the print cue then power printer back on. This worked for me on the C782e, x854e and x940e models that I have.
