Fixing this one is easy. Go to the unit and press the menu. Then with the arrows go to service and press ok / enter, with the arrows look for high speed usb and press enter, then look for ''off'' and press enter. The unit will reboot and you will be able to print

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.

    After giving a print i get a message (Page too complex) Plz help...


    Can I assume that you are printing spreadsheets?
    Press the "check mark" to clear the message. If that doesn't work, you'll have to add more memory to the printer.

    Dell 2135 full memory error message cannot print PDF files.


    All three replies are incredibly stupid, but especially Frank's. The issue is simply that you're trying to print something that has too much complexity in it for the printer's pre-installed memory to store the final rendering of before printing. The way a laser printer works, unlike an ink jet, it has to take the entire page to be printed and render the final output in memory before the page can be fed through since it doesn't go line by line. If you're trying to print something that has a very complex page in it, such as a full 8x10 photo, the base amount of memory may not be enough. Dell sells a 256MB add-on memory chip you can put in the printer to get around this. Unfortunately the only other way around the issue would be to reduce the complexity of the page; perhaps try printing the PDF scaled down to 70% so the printed output is a lot smaller but also takes up less of the page, meaning the printer may be more likely to be able to fit the page into the existing memory.

    Getting error message that is page to complex


    If you are windows 7 and connected through usb its just a matter of changing a few settings.

    under printing preferences change the raster compression to max and print data optimization to optomize for text and vector.

    Also on the printer in the service menu make sure that the usb high speed is on.

    If this does not fix the issue go to the hp website and download a universal post script print driver and change the settings under the advanced tab in the printing preferences menu.

    "Page Too Complex" message


    Press ENTER to clear the message.

    Allow the device to finish the job, or press CANCEL to cancel the job.

    Lower the USB speed on the product by turning off "High Speed USB". Following are instructions on how to do this from the Secondary Service Menu:

    To access the Secondary Service Menu press the Menu button.

    Now press the #2 button and use the < arrow to navigate to the High Speed USB selection.

    Press Enter and then use the arrow key to go to Off and press Enter again.

    Press the Cancel button twice to exit the Secondary Service Menu.

    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?
