As it says the memory has a problem, if your printer is an hp laser jet then you can find it on the side of the printer, just open the side panel of the printer it is inserted on a slot that really looks like a computer memory,detached it from the printer then use eraser to clean the contact, but before removing it turn off the printer and unplug the power. Be careful when you return it, because it has a positive side and negative, if you inserted it incorrectly, you might damaged the printer formatter.

SOURCE: Mem Test Failure Replace Dimm

The biggest problem with the P3005 is the main board. There has been a warranty extension on the P3005 if it is the main board.

it maybe a memory problem too, but unless you added memory, its usually part of the main board.

What does printer code "mem test failure 1/6


Hello carmen_alley,
This means the memory test process failed due to a bad module. DIMM ( Dual In-line Memory Module ) is the memory of your printer. It is really similar to computer RAM (memory).
If the printer is under warranty I would contact the manufacturer for a repair/replacement. If it is not, I would still contact them and get further information on what DIMM you would need to purchase to replace the bad one.
Hope this helps!

Mem test failure replace dimm 1


As the message says, DIMM 1 failed.
It's pretty straight forward fix for a tech.
So the cost should be minimal for the labor and whatever the
replacement DIMM costs.

My printer shows memory error on its screen why?


Mem test failure replace Dimm 0 or Mem test failure replace Dimm 1
If either of the are the messages displayed, the problem lies with the mother board (formatter).
DIMM 0 = On Board Memory - cannot be changed. DIMM 1 = Add On Ram - Can be Changed
Make Sure the printer firmware is up to date FIRMWARE
Most Likely the formatter board would require replacing.

The printer states mem test failure replace dimm 0, what is this and how much does it cost?


Dimm 0 is the memory that is onboard the Format board, you can't just replace it like a memory upgrade where you would add another dimm. You would have to replace the whole format board, part number Q7848-61006. cost all depends on how much you shop around.

Printer hangs and after displays a message"MEM TEST FAILURE REPLACE DIMM 0"


This is a straightforward error message saying that the first bank of memory is defective and needs repalcing. All you need to do is locate the module in the memory bay and replace it with a similar one. These only cost a few dollars so it is avery cheap repair.

Hp P3005x hang up!


The DIMM is a removable memory chip installed for adding additional memory. You'll have to replace it. Look in your manual for how to change the DIMM. You can usually remove it and see if the printer works. If you don't see the message again, then you should replace the chip.
