My printer appears to have stopped working. It just ignors me!
I believe it has a 64mb memory, and I have bought a 128mb sd ram replacement, which I have not yet fitted.
My concern is that the problem might be with the hard drive and I have been advised that I can hook this up to my compuer for testing if I can remove it from the printer. So I have been trying to find the manuel which on line so that I can discuver how to do that, but I have not been sucessful.
Can you either tell me how to remove the hard drive or how I can easily get the manual? I bought the printer in 2001. If you think the hard drive is not likely to be the problem, please let me know.

The MP610 can read from SD Memory, SDHC, MultiMediaCard, miniSD, RS-MMC, microSD, CompactFlash and Microdrive, Memory Stick, Memory Stick PRO, Memory Stick Duo, Memory Stick PRO Duo and xD-Picture cards.
Cards will the slots will appear as removable drives on your computer.
There is a memory stick in a socket on the formatter board in the right side of the machine. If you pull the right rear cover to the rear it will come off revealing a metal cover you open by the tab. Once open it shows the formatter board. Inside is a laptop sized memory stick,or DIMM. With power off you spread the tabs to release it then pull the memory out, same as in a laptop. You likely have 96mb RAM - most come with a 64mb memory on the formatter (non removable) and a 32mb option. On the P3005N and P3005DN the memory is required to make the embedded (builtin) network card function, otherwise you can run it fine without the bad DIMM if you use USB. If you want to replace you need a 200 pin DDR2 DIMM in either 32mb, 64mb, 128mb or 256mb value. Last I bought was on ebay for $20 for a 128mb brand new. HP wants like $220 for the same.
Have you tried connecting the camera (with the memory card still inside it) to your PC? You should have a data cable that came with the camera, so instead of removing the card use your camera to download to the PC.
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.
The printer comes stock with 64MB of printer memory. On complex print jobs it is not enough.
Pick up an additional 64mb 133mhz cl3 sdram chip (the small size like a laptop memory chip) and it will double the printer memory and help stop this problem.
