The error message is normally caused by either plugging accessories into the rip controller board or the engine board. In some models the board may be conbined. Or invalid or illegal commands sent from the printer. Try upgrading the firmware first. If that does not work you you may have a bad board.

900 service rip software


The 900 error usually indicates a software or communications problem. If the 900 error occurs only when the printer is receiving information from a network or computer, you should 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


Turn off the printer and disconnect every cable, except for the power cord.

Turn on the printer and see if the error returns.

If the error does not return, try to print a test page from the Test Menu.

If the test page prints correctly, the printer

900 service RIP software error - how do you fix it?


Please try to do the following steps. Remove parallel, USB, and/or network connections andrecycle the printer's power so that it is operating as a standalone machine. If it powers up to the Ready state, print the MenuSettings page(s) from the Utilities Menu. If the printer works without error while disconnectedeither from the network or a locally attached computer, there is a strong possibilitythat a corrupted file or network/parallel/USB connection is causing theerror. Look for patterns such as aparticular file or a particular workstation generating the error when data issent to the printer. Clear the print queue and connect all cables back andturn the printer back on. Resubmit the print job(s) and try printing again b> If the error will not clear, please take note of thesecondary code and contact Lexmark Technical Support.

My Dell M5200 printer says 900 Service and RIP Software. I have restarted it several times and checked the menu - all looks o.k., but it won't print. It sounds like it is going to and then the above...


900 RIP error message is a generic error.
In order to understand when it's coming from you have to give more information.
Does it happen when printer is printing a job from a PC, or when it just stands alone idle?
In first case it's probably a job that is generated by the driver which cannot be properly "digested" by the printer. In this case, press select and return on the OP as soon as you get the secondary code message and write it down. Then call Dell support and tell them about it.
If the printer is getting 900 RIP error when being idle, I'd recommend disconencting it from the network for a couple of days to see if the error appears. If it doesn't, then it's something from the network which is causing the problem. Perform the same procedure of collecting the secondary code and contact Dell.
If it still gives 900 RIP error when disconnecting, then it's one of the hardware part which is causing the problem. It might be an option such as a drawer, or a memory unit, or just a main board. try disconnecting one by one the options and see if the problem goes away. Whenever it comes back, collect the secondary codes.

hope it will help, dont forget to thumbs-up

What does 900 Service RIP Software error message mean and how do i reslove it


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.

How to fix message error 900.00 service RIP software on Lexmark c 530 dn


Does the error pop up when the printer is booting up, receiving information via network, connected via usb, or connected via parallel cable? It could be two problem. If it would post during printing, then it could be cause by a software or network problem. Test the printer in a standalone mode without any usb or network connection, if the error would post upon power up and without any network connection or usb connection then its a hardware problem. If it's a hardware problem, it would require a service call.

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 lexmark t644 printer and have an error code of 900.44 any ideas on how to fix this


  1. If the printer is currently displaying a 900 RIP Software error, power off the printer and leave it powered off for 20 seconds or more. Doing this will clear the printer's memory.
  2. While the printer is off, clear any pending print jobs from the computer or the network queue. This will prevent any corrupted print jobs from being sent to the printer again when it is powered back on.
  3. Power the printer back on.
  4. If the printer goes to the Ready status, try printing again.
  5. If the 900 RIP Software error returns when the printer is powered up or when you try to print, there is a problem with either the printer, the communication cable connecting the printer to the computer, or with the print job itself. Follow the directions below to check each of these components.
    • If the error appears every time you power on the printer, regardless of whether you send a print job or not, the likely source of the problem is the printer or an option installed on the printer.
    • If the error appears only when you send print jobs to the printer, the likely source of the problem is the computer, a setting on the printer, or one of the communication cables.
