HP Designjet 500 and 800 Series Printers - Printer Setup

Figure : The 24-inch printer with its stand and media bin attached
  note:
Read these instructions carefully and complete each step before you start the next.
  warning:
Because some of the components of the printer are bulky, you will need two or three people to lift them.
Assemble the stand
  1. Separate the stand from the media bin. Set aside the cardboard tray inside which separates the components of the media bin from those of the printer’s stand. This provides access to the stand components.
    Figure : Separating the stand from the media bin
  2. Attach the legs to the outside of the cross brace.
      note:
    The stand is assembled upside-down.
    Figure : Attaching the legs to the cross brace
  3. Insert eight screws into the legs. Use the smaller screws with washers.
    Figure : Inserting screws into the legs
  4. Position the horizontal foot brace onto the feet. Push the foot brace into the slot in each foot.

  5. Position the feet on the legs assembly.

  6. Secure the feet to the legs with ten screws and the torx driver wrench supplied with the printer. Again, use the smaller screws with washers.

Attach the stand to the printer
  1. Check that all the stand screws are tight. If the screws cannot be tightened properly, try unscrewing one or two so that the legs, feet and cross braces are properly aligned, and then retighten them.
    Figure : Checking that all the stand screws are tight
  2. Ensure all four brakes are applied, as shown.
    Figure : Ensuring all four breaks are applied
  3. Turn the stand the correct way up.

  4. Put the printer onto the stand assembly.

      warning:
    Two people should support the printer while a third secures the stand.
  5. Secure the stand with the four screws that have large flat heads. Two screws (on the right leg) are secured normally.
    Figure : Securing the stand
  caution:
Do not tighten the screws on the left side of the printer too tight. They are manufactured to remain somewhat loose and allow the printer to be self-leveling. This is to compensate if the printer is installed on an uneven surface, because torque may be applied to the printer and can damage it.
Assemble the media bin
  1. Insert the four bars into the slots in the right bin holder, and then mount the left bin holder onto the four bars.
    Figure : Inserting bars into right and left bin holders
  2. Remove the bin “film” from its container. You will need to form five creases in the film so that it will fit properly into the bin holders. Four of these creases are 1 cm (3.9 inches) and 2 cm (7.87 inches) from each end, both in the same sense, with an orientation circle on the outside. The third crease is also in the same sense, and 9 cm (35.4331 inches) from the end farthest from the orientation circle.

  3. Slide the bin film into the groove in the bin holders, and bend it into position. Insert the end with the two creases first. Slide the film fully to the end so that the creases are in the correct positions.

  4. Clip the film into place at one end.

  5. Attach the two caps to this end of the film.

  6. Clip the film into place at the other end.

  7. Attach the two caps to this end.
    Figure : Attaching caps to film end
  8. Clip the end pieces to the film and sides.

  9. The media bin is now complete. You should now peel off the orientation circle.

  10. Attach the right adapter to the stand. It is marked with the letter ‘R’ and must be attached to the front part of the right leg. First hook the bottom into its slot and then raise it into place; two clicks should be heard as the top is clipped in.
    Figure : Attaching right adapter to the stand
  11. Attach the left adapter to the stand. It is marked with the letter ‘L’, and must be attached to the front part of the left leg.
      note:
    If the adaptor needs to be removed, unclip the two latches near the top and insert a pencil or similar tool into the hole to release each latch.

  12. Insert the bin onto the adapters. Hold the bin horizontally and insert the small pins into their slots.
    Figure : Inserting the bin onto the adapters
  13. Raise the bin into its correct position. Raise the bin until the large pins align with their slots and the bin drops into place.
    Figure : Raising the bin into its correct position
Turning on the printer
After attaching the power cord to the power socket in the back of the printer, turn the printer on with the on/off push button (a soft button located on the left side of the front of the printer).
The printer’s front panel menu and all the printer’s internal files are available in the following languages: English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Korean, Traditional Chinese Simplified Chinese, and Catalan.
The printer will prompt for language selection upon the initial startup of the printer.
Priming the ink system
The 500 and 800 series printers use the HP modular ink system delivery system. The ink supply includes both printheads and ink cartridges.
When the printer is first turned on it will ask for ink cartridges.
  note:
Four setup printheads are already installed in the Carriage. Leave these printheads in the printer until the setup procedure is complete and the printer promts to replace the setup printheads with the normal printheads.
The printer will automatically run the priming procedure.
Altitude setting
The 500 or 800 series printers contain a vacuum pump, which is used to hold the media onto the platen. The altitude of the printer location affects the efficiency of this pump. Specify the altitude to ensure the pump operates correctly.
To set the altitude:
  1. Select the Setup –> Altitude option from the printer's front panel menu.
  2. Scroll to the required value (0 – 1000 m, 1000 m to 2000 m, or > 2000 m) and press ENTER.
The following table shows the corresponding altitude values in feet.
Meters
Feet
0 -1000
0 - 3300
1000 - 2000
3300 - 6600
>2000
>6600
