Question about HP DesignJet 500ps (42 in.) InkJet Printer
I don't know where is the memory slot and I don't know how to change it.
The Designjet 500 did not have a direct memory upgrade slot. You will have to purchase a HPGL2 (formatter) card first. This then has a memory slot on it for further upgrades. The plotter had 32Mb memory on board, the card another 32Mb and then you can upgrade by a further 64Mb (waste of money) or the best is 128Mb. This is then added to your original Ram giving you approx 164Mb which is then normally more than enough. The HPGL2 (formatter) card is sold by any HP supplier on order only. Part number is C7772A. Standing in front of the plotter its located in the left side at the back. Look behind the left cover and you will see a small cover in a sort of L shape near where the roll holder slots in, thats it, slip the small cover open (you will see an arrow on it showing how to open it), look if there are any additional cards in the machine, if not it means you still need to buy the card, otherwise you will simply need the RAM.
