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.

This means your formatter board has failed. This is quite common on the P3005. You need to call HP support and give them your serial number. They will tell you if it is under their extended warranty. They have a program to cover these defective boards. Just don't know wether your machine will still be under that repair program. In any case be assured it is the formatter board which is under the right side cover. The one that your network/USB cable plugs into. I repair HP printers and have personally seen this exact situation 4 or 5 times.
If your still unsure just Google search P3005 formatter or P3005 replace dimm 0. You will see lots of people with the same issue.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

This problem is one of two things. If you have additional memory installed, it might be bad. Remove any memory upgrades and trying restarting. If not then it is the formatter that is bad as the onboard memory has failed.

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.

Mem test fail replace DIMM1


This error indicates that either the formatter has failed, or if you have additional memory installed it is bad.

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.
