What are the Symptoms of Faulty Laser Printer Memory?

If the memory your printer uses during print jobs becomes faulty, there are a number of symptoms that will allow you to recognise and diagnose the problem yourself. Armed with this knowledge, you can avoid having to replace the whole thing when swapping a component will suffice.

Partial or Defective Prints
If you have to print a large job that is too big for your printer’s memory, it will do its best to print to the limits of its capacity but will stop when it reaches that boundary. This will result in a partial print and a document that is all but useless to you. Whilst insufficient RAM might be more of an indication of a necessity to upgrade it, poorly performing or ‘faulty’ RAM will not work to its full capacity...hence the issue. Either way, you will need to purchase new printer memory upgrade.

Error Messages
A laser printer will typically display an error message when its RAM is playing up and this will usually report a ‘limitcheck’ or ‘vmerror’ problem. This may result in a number of unrequested pages being printed with machine code on them, especially if your printer doesn’t have an inbuilt display.

Stuck Print Jobs
Another symptom of bad printer memory is when print jobs seemingly disappear into thin air without printing or simply show in the print queue, unable to proceed further. Clearing the print queue should be quite a simple task, however, the root cause, i.e. insufficient memory, will have to be resolved to avoid the problem persisting.

Lasting Actions
There are short-term measures that can be taken to alleviate these kinds of issues, such as reallocating memory or printing complex documents in individual sections, but this is technically papering over the cracks, as you’re having to take these laborious steps to mitigate the effects of a bigger underlying memory issue.

If you’d like an easier, stress-free printer experience, we’d recommend taking steps to replace your defective printer memory as soon as you can. If you take the upgrade route, you must remember that printers are like laptops and PCs, in that they will have a maximum allowable amount of installable memory, so be sure to check your printer’s specs and capabilities before you moving forward. Your printer’s manual is a good place to start or you could have a chat with one of our advisers.

Don’t suffer from underperforming printer memory. Take action now. Your work colleagues will thank you for it!

History of Supermicro

Super Micro Inc is a California-based hardware manufacturer that specialises in rack solutions, networking devices, blades, servers, workstations and server management software. The company came into being back in 1993, when Charles Liang, Sara Liu, and Wally Liaw got together with the common goal of producing high quality computer hardware in the global market.

Just 2 years ago, Super Micro was ranked within the 20 fastest growing enterprises by Fortune Magazine. Situated in Silicon Valley, the company has its own ‘Green Computing Park’ at its California HQ, as it has a keen environmental conscience, reflected in the construction of its flagship building.

Nearly Zero Net Energy Building
The building is a menagerie of energy saving technology and provides all but 2% of the energy required to run the building itself via extremely clever features that gather energy from sunlight and other natural renewable sources. Their ‘Keep it Green’ motto is part of the company DNA and is something they are rightly proud of.

Strong and Consistent Growth
Supermicro is experiencing something of a meteoric growth, having increased to 5 times its size in just over 5 years. It is presently the top IT firm in the world in terms of its expansion with annual revenues of $2bn and growing.

The company is a leader in the field of high end computer hardware, servers and IT research and development. As well as doing extremely well on green issues, this is backed up by world-class end to end solutions, big data, HPC, enterprise IT and cloud computing.

Satellite Offices
As well as their California office, Supermicro also has subsidiary offices in the Netherlands and Taiwan. This gives the corporation a global reach to retail its server systems to Europe and the far east through multiple reseller partners. The number of international markets the company is in is quite staggering, boasting as it does, over 800 customers in more than 100 countries.

Despite only being in existence for 25 years (a relatively short time when you consider its current day status), Supermicro offers a massive range of products, from full rack architecture to complete server management and there seems to quite literally be ‘no job too big’ for the company.

Future R&D
Supermicro is a serious innovator and it performs the vast majority of its R&D efforts internally, which ensures that the design teams involved are able to better communicate and collaborate on development, meaning a shorter wait for new, more efficient technology to hit the market.
