Question about HP Photosmart 4180 All-in-One Printer

Printer "out of memory"

My HP4180 has recently started to give an error message saying "Out of memory Save or close any open files or applications" whenever I try to print a spreadsheet out of Microsoft Works 8. Word documents print perfectly. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the printer software several times but to no avail. The document in question prints perfectly on my other (Epson) printer. Any clues for a solution???

    When I click on PRINT PREVIEW when using Works 8 spreadsheet I'm given the OUT OF MEMORY SAVE OR CLOSE..... warning. When I click on X the warning goes away and the print preview appears as though there had been no "out of memory" warning and everything works normally.



    It's a false warning and it's annoying. I did not have this until I recently installed Works 8 in place of Works 9. Works 9 did not have a converter needed to open older versions of Works.



    I'm using Windows Vista with an HP Deskjet 3845.

I tried all of the above including reinstalling my printer and Works 7.0; nothing worked. Finally I just went to Best Buy and bought Works 9.0 for $40. Everything is fine now. It's annoying that Microsoft can't or won't provide a reasonable fix for this problem.

I would do a major PC cleanup to try and free up memory. :

Do a virus control update and scan

Go to start>all>programs>accessories>system tools>disc cleanup and do that

Go to the toolbar>Tools>Internet options>delete all your cookies

Look in the lower right corner where your little icons are for running programs. There should be only the most necessary items there. Having a bunch of programs ther usies a ton of memory. If you do have alot get back to me and I will explain how to turn them off. They do not need to be running all the time.

Do you have a registry cleaning program? If you do run that.

Go through your files and delete unwanted docus, photos, etc. or put them on a CD if you want to keep them. That actually will give you more drive space but it doesnt hurt to clean that up wwhile you are doing this.

Go through the icons on your desktop. right click on any that you no longer use or don;t need so readily available and delte them. This will not delete the programs.

Empty your recycle bin

do a defrag

Restart your computer.

While you are doing all this, send me a list of all the little icons of running programs in the lower right corner

I'll be glad to help in any way I can.

The problem isn't your printer. The problem is with your Microsoft Works software. I know of six solutions that may work.

1) Download the latest service pack for .NET Framework 1.1. http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=A8F5654F-088E-40B2-BBDB-A83353618B38&displaylang=en

2) Go to this website and download the update. http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=65f5b806-e6a1-4f92-a656-e56eeda67e3d&displaylang=en

3) Uninstall printer completely (again). Unplug the printer from the computer. Reboot computer. Download the lastest driver from HP website. When installing the driver software, choose (type)a different directory,( ie. C:\MYHP\HP4180\ ). Plug Printer back to computer.

4) Go to this website. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/841220

5) Click START, click RUN, type SPOOL. Double click printer folder, clear (delete) any files in this folder.

6) Download the latest version of Microsoft Works 9.0.

Let me know if this works.

Scaner Epson CX-5400 error message


What is the error message? SCANNER ERROR?
If that is what you getting, turn printer off then open scanner cover- on the left hand side there is a toggle log for scanner, position it to unlock then turn printer on then try scanning/copying again.

if your having a different error message pls indicate the exact error that you are getting.

Printer cover open error message


I had that problem too.

Unplug the printer.
Hold the printer cover open while you plug in the printer.
Then wait for the printer to power on while still holding the cover open.
Then close the cover.
The buttons should work and th error message should be gone.

It worked for me.
