HP Designjet 500ps and 800ps Series Printers - Mac OS: Detailed System Upgrade

Introduction
The System Maintenance Utility keeps HP Designjet 500ps and 800ps series printers up to date with the latest system software.
Downloading the System Maintenance Utility from a Macintosh
Ensure that the power to all printers requiring an update is on. Ensure that Desktop Printing is enabled on the Macintosh and that a Desktop printer has been created.
  1. Download the appropriate System Maintenance Utility from www.designjet.hp.com. If an HPGL\2 personality card is installed in the printer, download the file designated for use with an HPGL\2 card.
  2. After downloading, a file titled, DJ500.sea will result on the Macintosh.
  3. Double-click DJ500.sea to expand it.
  4. Click Save to save the expanded file.
  5. A folder titled, DJ500 will be created on the Macintosh.
  6. Open the folder and double-click Upgrade Designjet icon.
  7. The application will analyze the desktop printers created on the Macintosh and report if an upgrade is needed.
  8. When the correct printer is chosen, click Upgrade.
  9. When the upgrade has completed, the printer will reboot itself and the front panel will prompt to unload media.
  10. Unload any media, then reload. The printer will then recalibrate.
      note:
    The update process may take several minutes. Do not turn the printer off before the drawing showing the printer being unplugged appears on the front panel display.
