HP Designjet 330/350C Printers - Setting Up the Printer

Issue:
Setting up the printer.
Solution
Installation steps are as follows:
Position the Printer
  1. Position the printer.
    1. Make sure the printer is sitting on a level surface.
    2. Allow enough space above the printer to open the cover.
    3. Leave enough space for your largest sheet size to hang freely from the media exit slot without touching the ground.
    4. Place the printer at the edge of the support so that sheets exit without hitting the top of the support.
      switch on
  2. Make sure that the power switch on the front of the printer is in the off position.
      warning:
    Be sure that the power cord supplied with your printer matches your AC power connection requirements. Use only three-wire (earth-grounded) power cords with this printer.
  3. Plug the power cord into the socket at the back of the printer, and then into your power outlet.
  4. Switch on the printer by pushing the power switch.
    Load The Print Cartridge(s)
  5. Make sure that, on the front panel, the Film and Error lights are flashing.
  6. Open the cover. If necessary, wait for the cartridge carriage to move to the service station (the area on the left of the printer).
      warning:
    Do not touch the stainless steel strip that runs the length of the printer behind the cartridge carriage; its edge is very sharp. Keep hair, jewelry, clothing, and foreign objects away from the printer mechanisms.
  7. A set of cartridges was supplied with the printer:
    • The HP DesignJet 330 printer is supplied with one black cartridge.
    • The HP DesignJet 350C printer is supplied with four cartridges: Yellow, Cyan, Magenta, and Black.
    • For the HP DesignJet 350C printer, each stall in the carriage has a dot indicating the color of the cartridge that should be installed: You must put the correct cartridge in the correct stall. The sequence of the stall colors, from left to right: yellow, cyan, magenta, and black.
        note:
      It is not recommended that you operate the HP DesignJet 350C printer with only the black cartridge loaded.
    For each cartridge in the set:
    1. Take the cartridge out of its box.
    2. Remove the colored protective tape and tab from the cartridge’s nozzles.
    3. Make sure that the printer is still switched on. (Never install cartridges with the printer switched off.)
    4. Insert the cartridge in the stall. Press down lightly and push the cartridge away from you until it snaps into place. If it is installed correctly, the READY light flashes for a few seconds. Otherwise, re-seat it.
    5. When all the cartridges are installed, lower the cover. On the front panel, the READY light should flash for up to about a minute and then go off. The LOAD MEDIA light should.
      Connect The Printer To Your Computer
  8. Decide whether to use the parallel or serial interface.
    If your computer and your application software support it, use the parallel interface, as it is faster. You may connect both the parallel and the serial interface simultaneously if you wish: The printer uses the interface that first receives data.
  9. Choose an interface cable.
  10. Switch off the printer and the computer.
  11. Connect one end of the cable to the appropriate port on the back of the printer.
  12. Connect the other end of the cable to your computer. For help choosing the correct port on the computer, refer to your computer documentation.
  13. Switch on the computer and the printer.
    Send A Demo Plot
  14. If media is not already loaded, load roll media or a single sheet.
  15. Press simultaneously on the following two keys: Setup and Continue Plotting.
