HP4250 Insufficient disk space for this job

When printing, even if just a small document, a page comes out with

Error: Unable to store job at printer
Reason: Insufficient disk space for this job

Solution: Delete some files from the disk before resending this job

There is no internal HDD, just RAMdrive, any suggestions?

This printer don't have HD (but you can install one).

Install more RAM or HD.

Ok, upon further investigation, according to the print queue on the server, there is a HDD installed, although browsing the printer, nothing is mentioned.

The printer has 64Mb and has been working fine for a year or so. Prints being sent are small docs.

Could this be a failure of the existing RAM?
Is there a way of clearing down jobs that may be stored on the HDD if this could be causing it?

I think your RAM is OK.

If you want initialize your Hard Disk, HP says that you have to use Web Jetadmin and the Device Storage Manager plug-in:

I have had an issue where the print jobs that seem small might be bigger than you think. Consider the type of doc you are attempting to print. If the doc is a PDF or word, through properties of that document find out how large the size is. If the file you are printing is a scanned image, more than likely it may be to large to print.
