HP Designjet Printers - Verifying a Pallet Set Up

Issue:
Using a pallet setup on an HP Designjet printer, either through the front panel or the setup sheet (depending on the model), does not work from the software. This is most commonly seen from Windows applications that have to use the Windows driver and rely on the driver for pen settings. Current Windows drivers do not allow for any type of pen settings.
Solution
To verify that the HP Designjet printer is using the pallet that is set on the printer, type the following at a DOS prompt:
  • echo in;sp1;pa0,0;ci1000;sp2;ci2000;sp3;ci3000;sp0;pg; >LPT1 (port the printer is connected to).
     note:
    This test validates that the HP Designjet printer is functioning correctly.
This will draw 3 different sized circles using 3 different pens from the pallet set up on the HP Designjet printer. The "sp" command means select pen. You can change this for any pen in the pallet that is in question. The "ci" is circle, and this can be just about any value.
Workaround
Select an HPGL or HPGL/2 pen printer driver.
 note:
Make sure that the language on the HP Designjet printer is set to 7586, HPGL/2. For the original HP Designjet model 1633A, which is only HPGL/2, type the following:
echo
in;sp1;pa12000,12000;ci1000;sp2;ci2000;sp3;ci3000;sp0;pg; >port the printer is connected to.
