Let me explain first what the problem was..they had a Graphic PDF that on the HD was 20 MB but when extracted was well over 200 MB..first I had thought the pdf was exeeding the Printers memory but after testing it was not. The customer was printing the document using adobe PRO I had him print the document in reader 8.1 and made sure the print as image under advanced was selected and the document printed..

Memory low message on hp laserjet pro 200

see HP LaserJet Pro Printers Memory is Low message displayed on the control...

HP LaserJet Pro Printers - 'Memory is Low' message displayed on the control panel HP LaserJet Pro - Troubleshoot 20.xx (memory failure) and 21.xx (print failure) error messages (ID: emr_na-c05049204)
HP Customer Support page and ensure the printer is running the latest available firmware. Print a Configuration Report from the control panel of the printer to check the installed firmware version.
  • If the printer supports expandable memory, you can install additional memory in the form of a DIMM. Check the printer's User Guide to see if it supports additional memory.
  • Break complex print jobs into smaller jobs that contain fewer pages.
  • If the printer is an MFP, delete stored faxes to increase available memory. Go to this document for instructions: HP LaserJet Pro MFP - Delete faxes from memory (ID: emr_na-c03264743)
  • Power cycle the printer to delete stored fonts or macros. It is possible to download fonts or macros in a way that power cycling the printer will not delete them; see Appendix A - Memory Allocation.
  • Changing some software and/or print driver settings might result in a less complex print job.
  • Use a different print driver. For example, a PostScript print driver will typically result in a more complex print file. If possible, try sending the file with a PCL6 or UPD printer driver.
  • Adobe PDF files can sometimes be very complex. Go to this document if printing PDF files is slow or resulting in memory out messages: HP LaserJet - Print job is slow or hangs in the print queue when printing Adobe PDF files (ID: emr_na-c04071740)
  • If the printer is connected via a network, try sending the file connected by USB cable only. This will eliminate possible network issues that are taking printer memory.
  • Appendix A
    Memory Allocation Utilities or jobs that you download to the product sometimes include resources (for example, fonts, macros, or patterns). Resources that are internally marked as permanent remain in the product memory until you turn the product off.
    Use the following guidelines if you use the page description language (PDL) ability to mark resources as permanent. For technical details, see an appropriate PDL reference for PCL or PS.
    • Mark resources as permanent only when it is absolutely necessary that they remain in memory while the product is turned on.
    • Send permanent resources to the product only at the beginning of a print job and not while the product is printing.
    NOTE: Overusing permanent resources or downloading them while the product is printing might affect product performance or the ability to print complex pages.

    Cancel print job with a linux operating system

    You've sent a print job to your printer and the green light is blinking, but the printer is not printing. The light blinks for a very long time.
    The blinking light indicates that the printer is recieving your print request and will print shortly. If the document you are attempting to print is very large or contains many graphics or images, the printer must spool this data into its memory before printing. This can take quite a bit longer than usual. PDF files are notorious for taking longer than other document types.

    In this case, it is best to wait a period of time before taking action. Give the printer 10 minutes and see if it prints.

    If it does not print within this window of time, do the following.

    1. In the bottom right corner of your screen, you will see a small printer icon. Double click on this icon to open the printer job menu.
    2. You will see your print job located there, with other information, including its status.
    3. Select the job by right clicking on it and select Cancel.
    4. The job should cancel itself.
    5. Unplug the printer, removing all power and leave it sit for a couple of minutes.
    6. Plug the printer back in and allow it to go through its start up phase until the "Ready" indicator light is solid. This indicates that the printer is ready to recieve jobs.
    7. You may now attempt to print again.

    Error code says invalid pdl file

    Uncheck the "Enable advanced printing features" checkbox under the Advanced tab in the printer's Properties page. I've observed this causes the print job to fail when I've attempted to print via USB cable. Also, any advice you read that suggests printing directly to printer isn't sound advice. You need to spool your job, or otherwise a large job that does not fit the printer's available memory (buffer) DOES NOT fail gracefully.

    Time Out Error

    This is from Xante's 3G Manual (downloadable via PDF)
    "Printer Timeout The Timeout feature allows you to select the number of seconds the
    printer waits for additional data before cancelling a job and returning
    to the READY/IDLE state.
    Set Timeout from the MISC:TIMEOUT configuration menu. The
    factory default of 40 seconds (40 Sec) is an average setting. Set
    timeout according to the type of files you send. Use a low setting for
    small, simple files to prevent an indefinite tie-up on one job. Use the
    300 or Never setting for large files, such as graphic intensive or CAD
    (Computer Aided Design) files, to allow enough processing time.
    With the NEVER selection, the printer does not timeout; it waits
    until it receives additional data or until the printer is reset."

    Here is the address where you can download the manual:

    20 mem overflow

    The printer received more data form the computer than can fit in its available user memory. You may have tried to transfer too many macros or soft fonts, or graphics that were too complex. This problem is also caused by printing too many typefaces at 600dpi. Press Continue to print the transferred data, then simplify your print job or install additional memory. I don't know why it would just start doing it, perhaps a memory module has gone bad and there is not as much available RAM as there used to be?
