HP 6xi memory

What kind of memory does this printer take.
I don't want model numbers from vendors, I want parity, non-parity, or EDO.
Sizes?

Memory for printers are specific...you can not use standard PC RAM in them. Check this site out to order memory:

I know most lasers do have specific memory, but this one has a 72 pin socket and I was told that it took "standard" memory.
I have P,NP, and EDO laying around.

Try it and see....but I wouldn't....But its up to you. It will only take a 1mb, 2mb, or 4mb simm.

This is another reason to buy memory from HP...they will give you instructions on how to install....I am not familiar with the place to install memory on that printer, You can use my recomendations or wait for someone else to comment or answer...this is just my opinion :)

I have the book and know where the memory goes, but it won't accept the memory when I put it in.  It has 4 72pin slots that will hold a maximum of 50M.  I was told that it took non-parity.

Like I said...I don't believe you can use computer RAM in there...I'm not sure who told you you could but I think they are wrong.

Yes you can use standard PC Ram in your printer but it has to be NON-EDO (although edo may work) it needs to be standard 8 chip memory if it is single sided, or 16 chip if it is double sided regardless of the size of the simm.

You can just try any memory you have and see if it will work, you will not harm your printer if it does not.  I have done this many, many times before.

Good Luck!

I did finally get the answer!
Your answer was close but not complete, jrhelgeson.
Since you obviously work with these printers also, I will tell you what I found.

The memory must be:
NON-PARITY
70ns OR SLOWER
and MUST HAVE PRESENCE DETECT (Whatever that is)

I finally broke down and called HP ($) for the answer.

Thanks!

What's with the grade you gave me?  I deserved more than just a D.

Sorry, gave me the answer that I had already stated above, and the just try it and see wasn't the answer I was looking for.  I needed to know why all the memory I have was not working.

Since you got the closest, I gave you the points.
