Question about HP DesignJet 750c plus InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Ethernet port-DHCP I cant figure out how to set the ethernet card to DHCP. I can only get the printer to work with a parallel cable. Even setting it to a static IP would be better than the parallel.

First print a test page to determine the firmware version of the JetDirect card. If it's lower than A.05.05 it should be upgraded, first to A.05.05 (important!) and then to the latest version. Failing to do the "in-between" upgrade will render the JD card broken.

NOTE: If there's any doubt at all on how to do the JD firmware upgrade, contact your local HP support for help!

But after the upgrade you should be able to set the IP address (either fixed or DHCP) on the printer via the printer's control panel, if unsure your local HP Support should be able to help you. Then you need a HP Standard Port Monitor (can be found on HERE:) to get the best access to your printer. You don't need a new driver, ust install the HP Standard Port Monitor, go to the existing driver and create a new HP Standard TCP/IP port with the correct IP address.

Cannot ping ipf610

Many things could be the cause...

1st: Is the port you are plugging your Ethernet cable into live?
2nd: Is the Ethernet cable you are using a known good cable?
3rd: Do you have the IP address set in the right range of your network? If not sure of this it is best to first set it to DHCP and let the printer grab the proper scheme then go back and set the machine to static using the scheme that it pulled in DHCP.

I have just purchased a 4650EN Magicolor printer Aand want to know how to set it to work on a home network

Does the printer have an ethernet port? If so, just cable it into the network hub / switch. If you use a private network, and the printer was previously used, in a private or public network, then you will likely have to reset the static IP address of the printer. If the printer is new, then it may get an IP address from your DHCP Server. At some point, I recommend you give the printer a static IP address within your IP range, but outside the normal assignment range of the DHCP server to prevent conflicts.

If not, you can connect it via a parallel port to one of the computer systems currently on the network, and then set it as a shared device.

An 8400 prints with a USB or a cat 5 cable ( ethernet, regular internet cable). You can not print to a Phaser 8400 with a parallel cable. I really can't figure why you would get that message.You enter the network settgings and set an IP address, then configure your print driver to match.
There is no parallel port on a 8400.

Dell 3000cn Network Connection not working

First of, the ethernet must be 'on'. If dhcp available, set it to auto (or dhcp.. anyways..) and let it reboot, just in case :)
if not, try setting the IP-setting yourself. They should be somewhat similar to the settings on your local computer(s).

To add the printer to your computer, select 'Local' printer and specify 'tcp/ip' as which port its connected to. In the new window the ip to the printer should be entered. :) (at least for XP this is..)

Hope this gave you the correct solution..
