Question about Lexmark Optra T612 Laser Printer
Service manual indicates this is a logic board issue, but I've seen this error numerous times, and a logic board never fixes it.
What ends up being the issue is a bad print job, could be caused by a bad driver. Test by disconnecting the printer from network, and printing the menu settings from the panel. If it prints, then it's a bad print job or driver.

SOURCE: 900 Service RIP software error
a 900 rip error is the engine card. located behind the system board (formatter) if you can get the printer to a ready state you can phone 1800lexmark and get a pin code from them costs about 15 bucks. if this flash does not work you will likley need a new engine card.

900 RIP errors are errors in the Engine Code. There is an EC1 file available at: http://support.lexmark.com/perl/support/support.cgi.
Download and install the file by following the link on the above page, first error discription.

Are there any memory or Barcode SIMM's in the printer? If so, remove them (power off first!) and turn the printer back on and see if it acts normally. I have had 1 instance where the Barcode SIMM has caused that error. The Barcode SIMM had to be replaced. Most other times the 900 RIP error occured, a simple turn off/on "fixed" it (sometimes only temporarily). If all that doesn't help, flash the engine code with the latest from Lexmark support. If that doesn't do it, then engine and/or controller card need replacing.

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.
check the base printer:
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.
