Question about HP Business InkJet 2800 Printer
I just got a new computer and upgraded to Windows 7. Now my HP Business Inkjet 2800dtn won't print custom size documents, specifically 11x17.. I tried in Acrobat as well as Photoshop. I made sure my preferences in the printer were set to the size I want, but it still only prints 8.5 x11.

Usually this happens when the black cartridge is out of ink or when it is damaged.
Try to print with a new black cartridge

Many people had a similar problem with the Color Inkjet cp1700 B-size printer.
Vista Patch for cp1700 Printer - Fixes Duplex and Large Format Printing
General page with links to the cp1700 and other printers as well.
Vista Duplex Solution - Back Page Upside Down
Another solution that worked for some people was installing the hp deskjet 9800 printer driver.
It appears what you need is a patched .gpd file for the BI 2800.
Try emailing Bob Headrick, who has done these patches. (Thanks Bob)!
Be sure to put Vista and Large Format Printing 11x17 in the subject line.

You'd think between HP and MS, they'd have this working right out of the box.
Did they think people would buy a B-size printer so they could hook it up to Vista and then not want to print mainly B-size documents?
They would have had happier customers if they would have included B-size support but left out A-size!

Remove the cartridges from the printer then unplug the power cable from the back of the printer and from the walljack wait for 30 seconds then replug the power cable to the wall out let and then to the printer.

Unfortunately the page you are trying to reach is not a valid page. As an HP tech I searched internal for a firmware update on that model and there isnt one available.
