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.

Good day. Your phone memory was full, meaning your phone cannot continue the process of receiving data. Remember do not use the phone memory for storing large files or your inbox message or save files, but instead use the extra memory card of your phone, its a big help. Pull off the memory card from your phone and insert it to your laptop or use a card reader. This way you can transfer files fast and easy.Thanks

I keep having an error come up saying Messaging: Memory full close some applications. I have also had an error saying General: Memory full close some applications. I have no applications open can you...


clear your browser cache as well

set your messages in messaging - options- settings - other to 999 and e memory.

restore factory settings *#7780# default code is 12345 that might just might help you a bit and turn off and on your phone when you do all these things see if it helps any.

“Memory Full…Close some applications and try again” is a normal
message that usually comes on Nokia N70. It showed the memory used in the phone doesn’t have space anymore. But if the message still appears although the user already closed some applications it can be theproblem.
Someone who experience in this memory full problem said, an error message of memory full like above is appears each time he’s opened the
Camera. It also happens for a few times when he’s trying to open
messages, Gallery, or other applications. And then it will force to restart the phone.
Seems like it’s a RAM problem and might there are some applications unable to close completely. If your Nokia N70 phone has gone a start
menu button you can try to hold it down. This way will show you
everything that you have open and they can be closed easily so that
you can continue to take your photos.
So if it can resolve the problem you can reset/format by pressing *#7370#
