HP LaserJet P4010 and P4510 Series Printers - Install memory, internal USB devices, and external print server cards

Overview
The formatter has the following open slots and ports for expanding the product's capabilities:
  • One dual inline memory module (DIMM) slot for upgrading the product with more memory
  • Two internal USB ports for adding fonts, languages, and other third-party solutions
  • One external I/O (EIO) slot for adding an external print server, an external hard disk, or a parallel port
    If the product already has an embedded HP Jetdirect print server installed, you can add an additional networking device in the EIO slot.
For information about specific components that are available and information about ordering them, see Supplies and accessories.
To find out how much memory is installed in the product or to find out what is installed in the USB ports or the EIO slot, print a configuration page.
Install memory
You might want to add more memory to the product if you often print complex graphics, print PostScript (PS) documents, or use many downloaded fonts. Added memory also gives you more flexibility in supporting job-storage features, such as quick copying.
This product supports printing PDF files when 128 MB of memory is installed. However, for the best performance, upgrade the memory to at least 192 MB.
  note:
Single inline memory modules (SIMMs) used in previous HP LaserJet products are not compatible with the product.
Install product memory
This product has one DIMM slot.
  caution:
Static electricity can damage DIMMs. When handling DIMMs, either wear an antistatic wrist strap or frequently touch the surface of the DIMM antistatic package, then touch bare metal on the product.
If you have not already done so, print a configuration page to find out how much memory is installed in the product before adding more memory. See Print the information and show-me-how pages.
  1. After the configuration page has printed, turn the product off and disconnect the power cord.

  2. Disconnect all interface cables.

  3. Remove the right-side panel by sliding it towards the rear of the product to unlatch it.
    Figure : Right-side panel
  4. Open the access door by pulling on the metal tab.

  5. Remove the DIMM from the antistatic package.

      caution:
    To reduce the possibility of damage caused by static electricity, always wear an electrostatic discharge (ESD) wrist strap or touch the surface of the antistatic package before handling DIMMs.
  6. Hold the DIMM by the edges, and align the notches on the DIMM with the DIMM slot. (Check that the locks on each side of the DIMM slot are open.)

  7. Press the DIMM straight into the slot, and press firmly. Make sure the locks on each side of the DIMM snap into place.
    Figure : DIMM installation
      note:
    To remove a DIMM, first release the locks.

  8. Close the access door, and press firmly until it snaps into place.

  9. Reinstall the right-side panel. Align the tabs on the panel with the slots in the product, and push the panel toward the front of the product until it latches into place.

  10. Reconnect the interface cables and the power cord.

  11. Turn the product on.
Check DIMM installation
After installing the DIMM, make sure that the installation was successful.
  1. Turn the product on. Check that the Ready light is illuminated after the product has gone through the startup sequence. If an error message appears, a DIMM might have been incorrectly installed. See Interpret control-panel messages.
  2. Print a configuration page (see Print the information and show-me-how pages).
  3. Check the memory section on the configuration page and compare it to the configuration page that was printed before the memory installation. If the amount of memory has not increased, the DIMM might not be installed correctly, or the DIMM might be defective. Repeat the installation procedure. If necessary, install a different DIMM.
  note:
If you installed a product language (personality), check the "Installed Personalities and Options" section on the configuration page. This area should list the new product language.
Save resources (permanent resources)
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.
