i had the same issue, but i fixed it. For whatever reason the contacts that are inside the printer were not making contact with the PCB ( printed Circuti board ) on the underside of the drum... i fixed the issue by cleaning the pcb and re-aligning the contacts inside the printer.

The RAM for the printer is temporary.
turn off the printer and unplug the printer from the outlet. wait for 20 sec. plug the printer in and turn it on.
you can select in the printer properties page of the printer to print immediately instead of spool and print from the last page first. that will eliminated the ob store in the RAM.
