Question about HP Color LaserJet 4550n Printer

1 Answer

Hard drive or memory

My printer appears to have stopped working. It just ignors me!

I believe it has a 64mb memory, and I have bought a 128mb sd ram replacement, which I have not yet fitted.

My concern is that the problem might be with the hard drive and I have been advised that I can hook this up to my compuer for testing if I can remove it from the printer. So I have been trying to find the manuel which on line so that I can discuver how to do that, but I have not been sucessful.

Can you either tell me how to remove the hard drive or how I can easily get the manual? I bought the printer in 2001. If you think the hard drive is not likely to be the problem, please let me know.

Thank you.

Joe.

Types of sdram


PC66 SDRAM
PC66 SDRAM is the original module speed of SDRAM. PC66 SDRAM was the earliest version of SDRAM and therefore came in a number of smaller megabyte sizes than later versions. Most early motherboards were rated for PC66 SDRAM. The available sizes are 32MB (megabytes), 64MB and 128MB.
PC100 SDRAM


PC100 SDRAM was released after PC66 SDRAM and runs at a higher speed. It has the same number of pins as the earlier memory module and is capable of utilizing the same RAM slot. The only difference when installing this SDRAM in compatible computers with older systems (PC66 slots) is that the SDRAM will run at a slower speed. PC100 RAM comes in sizes such as 32MB, 64MB, 128MB, 256MB and 512MB.
PC133 SDRAM

The last generation of SDRAM is PC133. The PC133 memory provided a speed upgrade and comes in larger sizes than previous generations of SDRAM. PC133 modules are backward compatible with older SDRAM slots. The PC133 memory, however, will be forced to run at the slot's slower bus speed (PC66 or PC100). The memory comes in sizes like 128MB, 256MB, 512MB and 1024MB.

What is meant by a memory failure Replace dimm 0


There is a memory stick in a socket on the formatter board in the right side of the machine. If you pull the right rear cover to the rear it will come off revealing a metal cover you open by the tab. Once open it shows the formatter board. Inside is a laptop sized memory stick,or DIMM. With power off you spread the tabs to release it then pull the memory out, same as in a laptop. You likely have 96mb RAM - most come with a 64mb memory on the formatter (non removable) and a 32mb option. On the P3005N and P3005DN the memory is required to make the embedded (builtin) network card function, otherwise you can run it fine without the bad DIMM if you use USB. If you want to replace you need a 200 pin DDR2 DIMM in either 32mb, 64mb, 128mb or 256mb value. Last I bought was on ebay for $20 for a 128mb brand new. HP wants like $220 for the same.

Beeping on start up


Your motherboard has 64Mb built-in RAM and the video card needs some video RAM and has grabbed 8Mb of RAM which leaves the system with 56Mb of RAM. When you insert a 64Mb RAM module you have a total of 128Mb of which the video has grabbed 8Mb which leaves the system with 120Mb.
You can't change stop the video card from grabbing 8Mb of RAM, the RAM is essential for the video to work.
You can upgrade the RAM by removing the 64Mb RAM module and insert a 128Mb or 256Mb RAM module. You may even be able to insert a 512Mb RAM module if the motherboard will accept it, you need to check the specification of your laptop to see the maximum amount of RAM the laptop can handle.

Sound like the memory is not compatable, try booting with no memory installed and see if the hard drive appears, if so it's a memory problem.

Memory card question


I think its just a warning message but it shouldn't stop you from recording to tape.

If you can pick one up and install it in the camera, that will get rid of it.

It should take SD cards. They can be anywhere from 64mb to 2 gig in size. You should use the high speed cards as well such as a San Disk Ulra II. Standard cards may cause quality issues.
