I love HP INSTANT PRINTING utility! Last night I was getting the blue screen of death as I tried to print a PDF that I've printed a hundred times...A search of Google shows me that this is a common complaint when printing to a Designjet 500 or other brands of plotters with ADOBE. A good way around this is to use the HP Instant Printing utility. It is a nifty little piece of software that HP puts out and you can use almost any OS and almost any plotter with it. Find the download HERE.

Below is a list of configurable parameters and the steps to set the TCP/IP parameters using the front control panel for each family of printers.NOTE: Some models, such as the Designjet 10ps, 20ps and 50ps printers, do not have the ability to configure the print server using the front control panel. If any other model is not listed in this document, it can be assumed that it does not have this ability.

In addition, the following links will provide downloads for firmware upgrades and for creating print queues and configuring the Jetdirect print servers.

Configurable TCP/IP parametersThe following basic TCP/IP parameters can be configured using the front control panel of the printer. See the specific printer models headings below for the steps on how to change these.
Configuring TCP/IP on the HP Designjet 600, 650, 700, 750, 755, and CP series printersNOTE: A delay of approximately 30 seconds may be expected between each step.

To print a Service Configuration page from an HP Designjet 800 and 500For these HP Designjet printers with an optional HP-GL/2 accessory card :
Without the HP-GL/2 accessory card , the HP Designjet 500 will not produce a Service Print. However, some Jetdirect information is available by viewing the control panel. Follow the steps below to retrieve this information:
Configuring TCP/IP on the HP Designjet 1050c, 1050c Plus, 1055cm, or 1055cm Plus front control panel when using a 600n cardNOTE: A delay of approximately 30 seconds may be expected between each step.
