Question about HP LaserJet 5p Printer
Hi 92366, If your printer all of a sudden started giving you ?out of memory? errors while printing things you could print before, then you might have a problem. First thing to do is print out a copy of your printers configuration and verify how much memory the printer thinks it has. If it?s different from what you physically installed you may have issues with you memory. If you are trying to print large graphics they you simply may just need to increase you printers memory. If you?ve got plenty of memory, you haven?t changed or done anything to cause this error and you?ve been able to print this material before without errors here are some things to try: The 5P doesn?t have a display screen I?m assuming you?re getting this error in Windows. What is the status of the LEDs on the printer when you get this error? If you or anyone else with a similar problem is so inclined here is HPs LED code sheet: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?objectID=bpl04302 Try deleting your existing printer queue, downloading a new copy of the appropriate driver and reinstall. Here is the link to the HP site, simply select your operating system, select and download the appropriate driver. I personally am more partial to the pcl 5e driver and avoid everything else, in particular the PostScript drivers. Here is the HP link for their LaserJet 5p drivers: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DriverDownload.jsp?prodNameId=15011&lang=en&cc=us&taskId=135&prodClassId=-1&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=25481&debug=Keynote If none of this works let us know what happened that seems pertinent. Good luck and please don?t forget to rate the posting.
