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.

    SOURCE: low memory display on HP Laser Jet 3050

    Hello All,

    Please perform the following:
    Super NVRAM init
    When a super NVRAM init is performed, the all-in-one language and telecom country/region settings
    are undefined. The user is prompted to set the language and telecom country/region. Until these settings
    are defined, the all-in-one will not return to the Ready state.
    CAUTION A Super NVRAM init erases all data that is stored in both the unprotected and
    protected NVRAM memory.
    To perform a super NVRAM init
    Turn off the all-in-one.
    2. Press and hold down the * and 5 buttons.
    3. Continue to hold down the buttons while you turn on the all-in-one. Hold the buttons throughout
    the entire power-on sequence.
    4. When Permanent Storage Init. appears on the control-panel display, release the buttons.
    5. When prompted, set the language and telecom country/region.
    6. Allow the all-in-one to return to Ready before using it.

    A 59.xx error usually indicates a motor error. You can try a few things to clear the error.

    1. Power the printer off, then on again
    2. Check the paper path for any jams or foreign objects
    3. Reseat the fuser
    If you still receive the error after trying the above you should contact an authorized HP repair service. Check Google or Yelp for reviews. I've had very good experience with AM Exclusive.

    Memory low

    When getting the error message Low Memory, this means one of two things. Either the print job that you are sending to the printer is to big, or the fuser in the printer is to hot, and needs to cool down. I would not recommend printing in raster mode, as this can cause further issues within the software. A couple of steps that you could try are:

    1. If there are previous print jobs in the queue wait until they are completed
    2. Power down the printer for a minimum of 30 seconds
    3. If you are printing a large amount of pages, break it down into smaller jobs
    4. If printing documents, change the setting to either fast draft, or draft mode
