Hi.
Enable Hi speed USB on the printer.
Go to Menu using button on the printer, find Service option, Find USB settings and ensure it is set to high speed usb .

If that does not work, disconnect printer USB, and install updated drivers for this printer. You find them on: » Download drivers and software

Memory low message on hp laserjet pro 200


see HP LaserJet Pro Printers Memory is Low message displayed on the control...

HP LaserJet Pro Printers - 'Memory is Low' message displayed on the control panel HP LaserJet Pro - Troubleshoot 20.xx (memory failure) and 21.xx (print failure) error messages (ID: emr_na-c05049204)
HP Customer Support page and ensure the printer is running the latest available firmware. Print a Configuration Report from the control panel of the printer to check the installed firmware version.
  • If the printer supports expandable memory, you can install additional memory in the form of a DIMM. Check the printer's User Guide to see if it supports additional memory.
  • Break complex print jobs into smaller jobs that contain fewer pages.
  • If the printer is an MFP, delete stored faxes to increase available memory. Go to this document for instructions: HP LaserJet Pro MFP - Delete faxes from memory (ID: emr_na-c03264743)
  • Power cycle the printer to delete stored fonts or macros. It is possible to download fonts or macros in a way that power cycling the printer will not delete them; see Appendix A - Memory Allocation.
  • Changing some software and/or print driver settings might result in a less complex print job.
  • Use a different print driver. For example, a PostScript print driver will typically result in a more complex print file. If possible, try sending the file with a PCL6 or UPD printer driver.
  • Adobe PDF files can sometimes be very complex. Go to this document if printing PDF files is slow or resulting in memory out messages: HP LaserJet - Print job is slow or hangs in the print queue when printing Adobe PDF files (ID: emr_na-c04071740)
  • If the printer is connected via a network, try sending the file connected by USB cable only. This will eliminate possible network issues that are taking printer memory.
  • Appendix A
    Memory Allocation Utilities or jobs that you download to the product sometimes include resources (for example, fonts, macros, or patterns). Resources that are internally marked as permanent remain in the product memory until you turn the product off.
    Use the following guidelines if you use the page description language (PDL) ability to mark resources as permanent. For technical details, see an appropriate PDL reference for PCL or PS.
    • Mark resources as permanent only when it is absolutely necessary that they remain in memory while the product is turned on.
    • Send permanent resources to the product only at the beginning of a print job and not while the product is printing.
    NOTE: Overusing permanent resources or downloading them while the product is printing might affect product performance or the ability to print complex pages.

    You don't need the original HP install disc. Go to the H Support site and download and install the newest one listed for your operating system. Turn the printer off and unplug it, wait 10 secs and plug it back in after installing the latest driver and software. Should work fine for you.

    I want to install a u-print cdp78 printer. It was bought about 2 years ago and want to know if it will install in win 7 64 bit. Both printer and laptop are new.


    Hi,

    According to the information available on the manufacturer's support website, U-Print CDP78 works with Windows XP and later operating systems.

    You can download the Windows 7 64-bit compatible driver from the driver download page by clicking this link.

    On the page which opens, download the "U-Print Label Printer Driver" in .zip format from the PC Driver/Software Download section.

    Hope this helps. Thanks for using FixYa.

    TallyGenicom 2265+ not printing with custom paper size


    There may be a number of causes for the problem you are seeing. There are a number of places which may hold the origin to the page length problem you are seeing, in order of precedence these are;

    1. The page size set in the software package printing the 6 x 4.25 cards
    2. The page size set the printer driver printing to the printer
    3. The page size set on the printer
    I would recommend the follwoing;

    1. Set the form length on the printer to 6 inches (i am assuming this is the length of the card)
      The form length can be set through the menu and is normally set in lines (normaly the print size is set to 6 LPI) so the form length should be set to 33 lines
    2. Create a custom form size in SERVER PROPERTIES on the Windows XP machine to match the form size you are using.
      Ensure you select this form size in both PRINTER PROPERTIES and PRINTING PREFERENCES
    3. Try printing some Windows Test pages to see if these respect the page size selected withing the printer driver properties.
    If the Windows Test Pages do not print correctly I would recommend checking how you are creating the CUSTOM SIZE form, perhaps create a new form and double check the form properties one it has been saved to confirm these are correct.

    Check you are using the correct printer driver for the printer, you should be using the 2265+ printer driver. As a test you may wish to install the GENERIC TEXT printer driver or the EPSON LQ2250 driver, these will be included in the Windows Add Printers Wizard and should print OK to the 2265+.

    If the Windows Test Page prints OK I think you would need to look at the software package printing to the printer. Ensure the correct page size is selected here also, perhaps try printing from another software package selecting your custom size form to see if these print correctly.

    It is passable your software package is sending escape commands to the printer to call up the page size, I note you say Genicom printers printed ok from Win 98. The 2265+ may not have the same emulations as the Genicom printers.
    You can print a menu print on both Genicom (if these are available) and 2265+ and compare the settings on these.

    I do not believe the 2265+ has a Genicom emulation as standard, but you may be able to load an alternative version of firmware into the 2265+ which provides the Genicom emulation. If the data going to the printer contains Genicom Escape command to set form length this may resolve the issue.
    You may need to contact your TallyGenicom support department for the firmware (I think it may be called 7265+ firmware)
    If you are able to provide Hex Dumps of the data to the TallyGenicom support people they should be able to say what is going wrong with the form length setting.

    20 mem overflow


    The printer received more data form the computer than can fit in its available user memory. You may have tried to transfer too many macros or soft fonts, or graphics that were too complex. This problem is also caused by printing too many typefaces at 600dpi. Press Continue to print the transferred data, then simplify your print job or install additional memory. I don't know why it would just start doing it, perhaps a memory module has gone bad and there is not as much available RAM as there used to be?
