Error message on lexmark printer

Hi,  my printer is acting up. It is a C522 model that is saying "900.43 Service RIP software" on the screen and it sounds like it's constantly running. I've tried turning it off for a couple minutes and turning it back on, but the message keeps returning. I can't find my troubleshooting book so any help you can offer would  be greatly appreciated! thanks,  Becky

    The printer's engine just runs with the error message, "900.43 service RIP software" showing in the window. Sometimes it prints, sometimes it don't. Can figure out why.

900 Service RIP errors are usually a firmware failure. Upgrade to the latest firmware from Lexmark. This link is for the C52X network model:

Lexmark C510 not printing - message 900 service RIP software

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 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

900 Service RIP Software

Are there any memory or Barcode SIMM's in the printer? If so, remove them (power off first!) and turn the printer back on and see if it acts normally. I have had 1 instance where the Barcode SIMM has caused that error. The Barcode SIMM had to be replaced. Most other times the 900 RIP error occured, a simple turn off/on "fixed" it (sometimes only temporarily). If all that doesn't help, flash the engine code with the latest from Lexmark support. If that doesn't do it, then engine and/or controller card need replacing.

Printer Lexmark T630

The error message is normally caused by either plugging accessories into the rip controller board or the engine board. In some models the board may be conbined. Or invalid or illegal commands sent from the printer. Try upgrading the firmware first. If that does not work you you may have a bad board.
