Question about Dell M5200n Laser Printer
900 RIP error message is a generic error.
In order to understand when it's coming from you have to give more information.
Does it happen when printer is printing a job from a PC, or when it just stands alone idle?
In first case it's probably a job that is generated by the driver which cannot be properly "digested" by the printer. In this case, press select and return on the OP as soon as you get the secondary code message and write it down. Then call Dell support and tell them about it.
If the printer is getting 900 RIP error when being idle, I'd recommend disconencting it from the network for a couple of days to see if the error appears. If it doesn't, then it's something from the network which is causing the problem. Perform the same procedure of collecting the secondary code and contact Dell.
If it still gives 900 RIP error when disconnecting, then it's one of the hardware part which is causing the problem. It might be an option such as a drawer, or a memory unit, or just a main board. try disconnecting one by one the options and see if the problem goes away. Whenever it comes back, collect the secondary codes.

The 900 error usually indicates a software or communications problem. If the 900 error occurs only when the printer is receiving information from a network or computer, you should contact your software/network support. If the error occurs when the printer is idle or not connected to the network or PC, there may be a printer hardware or connection problem. Sometimes a bad connection with an Internal Network Adapter/Network Card can cause the problem. The first thing to check is the base printer.
To check the base printer
Turn off the printer and disconnect every cable, except for the power cord.
Turn on the printer and see if the error returns.
If the error does not return, try to print a test page from the Test Menu.
If the test page prints correctly, the printer
