I had to add extra memory to mine. It is easy and not too expensive.

Otherwise you can reduce the memory size of the picture in a graphics program (IrfanView is free and safe, for example).
-resample/resize it
-reduce the DPI (Dots Per Inch)
-reduce the color depth (32bits to 24 or 16 or 12)
-sometimes converting it to a more compressed JPG or PNG will allow it to print.

Also sometimes printing it through a different program works.

Easiest solution might be to cancel the print jobs... and turn off the printer. Then turn it back on after a few seconds and start over... see if that doesn't reset whatever has accidentally been set. (Oh and try removing the paper, then put paper in it again before you start the print job again)...

Good luck!!

PCL5 OUT OF MEMORY Phaser 8860

After reading some similar stories, I simply restarted the Xerox Phaser printer via the menu on the physical printer. I theorize perhaps the Phasers on board memory could have been bogged down from all the pictures involved in the problem documents and all the size problems associated with large files.

My pictures are suddenly printing out in pink tones

Are you inserting the card directly in the printer and printing? Also how long has your printer setup without printing? If it has not been used for sometime I would suggest cleaning it with a cotton swab and finger nail polish remover where the heads are located. If you insert new print carts and it still happens after cleaning I would avoid it, simply because the cost of repair will be too high.

Is there a typical application you are using? I noticed that file size (especially in adobe) can be an issue. If you go to printer settings (start / settings / printers / right click on the 1320 and select properties) choose device settings and the very bottom item is printer memory. I would increase this to like 80mb.... hope this helps
