My Panasonic KX-P4410 laser printer gives me a ram overflow message when printing graphics or tables. I was previously able to print these documents until about a week ago. What is causing this?

Print out a test page and see what the installed options show. Is the memory amout correct. Maybe it has gone bad.

Perhaps you're trying to print now in a higher resolution without noticing it.

As a higher resolution requires more printer memory, your printing is wasting all available memory before ending the whole graphic. Try to lower resolution values.

It could be either, actually. In any case, I'd suggest you to increase the amount of memory in the printer itself.

I changed printer resolution and am now having no trouble printing. I do wonder how the resolution could have been changed without my knowing it as I was able to print many of these documents previously.
