HP laserjet 4100 printer error 53.10.03

I have a HP Laserjet 4100 printer which has a problem of giving an error 53.10.03 whenn i turn it on. I read the troubleshoot and knows that code means the Memory in the third DIMM slot has failed the RAM test.I changed the memory and also replaced the Formatter board. Memory passed the ram test but the printer is still not working. Someone help me plz.
Moe is 100\% correct. The RAM memory built into the formatter board failed the test.

give it a couple taps on the left side of the machine. This fixed my problem

Does "is still not working" mean that you are still getting the same 53 error code? Only 2 things that can cause the error are the memory and the formatter.

I think you read the troubleshooting wrong. Here's what my book says.
y=internal memory
zz=Failed RAM test

I have the same 53.10.03 error which only appeared after I tried to add memory. The same error remains after removing the known-good extra memory.
Did I damage a good formatter board in the the process of snapping in the new memory, and perhaps pressing too hard?
Would you confirm that the "internal memory" is in the formatter board, not in the ROM?

  1. I know a long time has passed, but I had not lined the formatter box up correctly when reinstalling it into the printer and got this error. Pulled the formatter, lined up the mounting pins correctly and the formatter seated all the way in and booted.

I had pulled the memory out of my 4200 in anticipation of adding more. When I put it back in, I got the error code! Tried everything to fix it with no luck. Finally, I read a comment above about just smacking the printer on the left side a couple of times. I rolled my eyes and thought, what a dumb comment that was. So now I went back to the printer to check connections but still got the error and, in frustration, smacked it a few times on the left side. IT WORKED!!!!

My apologies to "Anonymous" that posted that comment. You are a genius!
