LaserJet 4MP RAM

I've just got a old LaserJet 4MP printer which I'd like to have some more RAM into. It's specs says it uses 72 pin FPM non-parity 70ns <= 8 MB RAM.

Can I install a generic 8mb 70 ns FPM RAM stick? Do anyone has already done that with(out) success?

And, in the lack of 70ns RAM, has anyone tried 60ns sticks?

PS: I know these memories are cheap and easily found, but the trouble getting them imported isn't worth.

Thanks.

It's been quite a while since I worked on those printers, but as I recall, we used any old SIMM that was 72 pin - the 60ns EDO was backward compatible.

One warning I would give is that you be sure that anything you purchase for this printer specifically indicates its for an HP Laserjet 4MP.  The parts for an HP Laserjet 4 series printer are not always compatible across the whole series.  A Bad exception to the normal process HP currently seems to use

Hope this Helps!!!.
