What does printer code "mem test failure 1/6

Hello carmen_alley,
This means the memory test process failed due to a bad module. DIMM ( Dual In-line Memory Module ) is the memory of your printer. It is really similar to computer RAM (memory).
If the printer is under warranty I would contact the manufacturer for a repair/replacement. If it is not, I would still contact them and get further information on what DIMM you would need to purchase to replace the bad one.
Hope this helps!

I bought this board with a p4 3.06mhz and 2 512mb corsair 400mhz ram, fastest at the time. I can't get any other ram to work in it. tried pny pc3200. 1ghz , some 256 pc2700's and some others and it won't...

you need to reset the cmos to recognize the ram, this is done by removing the cmos battery and joining conductive wire to the pos and neg term where the battery sits, earth out for at least 6 seconds, this takes place after inserting new ram, hope this helps

My printer shows memory error on its screen why?

Mem test failure replace Dimm 0 or Mem test failure replace Dimm 1
If either of the are the messages displayed, the problem lies with the mother board (formatter).
DIMM 0 = On Board Memory - cannot be changed. DIMM 1 = Add On Ram - Can be Changed
Make Sure the printer firmware is up to date FIRMWARE
Most Likely the formatter board would require replacing.

My asus p5q pro wont recognize 2 sticks of ram in the yellow slots but if i put one in yellw and one in black it recognizes them

is memory the same? probably not each slot set is for different memory need to add identical mem to slot yellow or black to increase mem.good luck!

Bought 1G ram from local computer store. It runs for about 5 minutes then i get a blue screen error and reboot. returned to store for a different mem stick...same issue. went to Crucial, found the...

Did you remove the "old" RAM, or did you add the "new" RAM to the old RAM?

Try using your computer with ONLY the "new" RAM installed.
Try using your computer with ONLY the "old" RAM installed.
Try using your computer with the "new" RAM in the 1st slot, and the "old" RAM in the 2nd slot.
Try using your computer with the "old" RAM in the 1st slot, and the "new" RAM in the 2nd slot.

Just added new memory and now nothing comes up when powered up I checked to make sure I had the stick in correctly, but the computer beeps when powered up, and nothing shows up on the monitor...

Try turning the computer on without the new memory stick in. If that works, it's either the new memory stick is not plugged all the way in (most probable), the new memory stick is not compatible with your computer (highly unlikely since I'm sure you checked compatibility first).

Best way to put a mem stick in is to hold it on top and push it firmly downwards until the clips that secures the mem stick click in place. :)

Trying to ugrade the ram from 512Mb to 1G. Once

mem needs to be installed in pairs, ie two 512 chips

New Memory wont work

unfortunately, chances are very high that whoever sold you the ram off e-bay relabeled slower ram that your bois doesn't recognize. If the seller has no warranty on his goods, you are stuck.

If you want to upgrade your ram, your best bet is to go ahead and pay the full price from a reputable dealer like tigerdirect, mwave, etc.

4gb ram not detected

First of all kindly specify what how many rams slots and how many ram chips are there
like 1 X 4GB or 2 X 2 GB
with RAM there can be a few problems
1) the frequency of ram whichmotherboard supports might be less than the freq at which the ramyou are puttin works, hence in this case RAM wont work on this motherboard and ull have to get the RAM replaced
2) some motherboards donot support a 1 x 4 GB RAM where as they might support a 2 X 2 RAM (ifyou do have 2 mem slots for ram)
and then there is the mosttrivial problem of the slot not being clean or arm not being putproperly, i can think of ne other reason for the ram not workingproperly..
