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. hope it will help, dont forget to thumbs-up
If the 900 error occurs
only when the printer is receiving information from a network or
computer, 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.
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's hardware is most likely working correctly. The
source of the problem is probably outside the base printer.
If the 900 error occurs again
before, during, or after the printing of the test page, remove all
options (internal network adapters, optional feeders, second drawer
options, finisher options, additional memory, etc.) from the printer.
Then turn on the printer
and try to print the test page. If it still posts the 900 error, the printer may
need to be serviced.
If the error does not
return, then the problem may be with one of the options.
you receive an Invalid Engine
Code error message when you power the printer back on,
there is a problem with the printer. An Invalid Engine Code condition
will cause a 900
RIP Software Error message to appear if you try to use
the printer. The Invalid
Engine Code error means either that your printer has
lost its stored operating code for the engine board or that the
printer's engine board has gone out.

5310n: error message is 900.00 service RIP software
A few of my users were having trouble with a Dell 5310n
printer. The error message on the display was error message is 900.00
service RIP software. When printing large data files, such as a PowerPoint
presentation, the printer would error out.
Per Dell's recommendation I configured the virtual printer to not spool the
print jobs and send them directly to the printer. This seems to have corrected
the issue so far.
Hi, This error could be due to several things, the most common one is that whatever is being sent from the computer is not being recognized by the printer causing the 900 Rip Soft Error. You can try to reset the printer and try sending the print job again. If the error persisted. Then the problem could be a hardware problem with the System Board.
This means there is a problem with the engine board. You can try to reset to factury defolds. Turn off the printer, push the buttons 2,3 and 5 and than turn on the printer. When message "reset to defolds" apears release the buttons. If this does not work than you have to exchange the engineboard.
Good luck, Gerrit Jan
This typically indicates a controller board failure. I would need to know the exact printer model to tell you what part you would need order. Example: T632N model uses part number 56P3083 -- CARD SYSTEM NETWORK T632N
a 900 rip error is the engine card. located behind the system board (formatter) if you can get the printer to a ready state you can phone 1800lexmark and get a pin code from them costs about 15 bucks. if this flash does not work you will likley need a new engine card.
