HP Designjet 700 Series Printers - How to Configure the Interface for Serial

Configuring the Interface for Serial
The following table shows the settings available for the printer's serial interface parameters, the factory defaults, and the most likely requirements for different computers.

* = factory default
  note:
Parity of None = 8 data bits, 1 stop bit
Parity of Even or Odd = 7 data bits, 1 stop bit
The settings on the printer must match those of the computer and software sending the data. Use their documentation to find the requirements. If in doubt, try with the above suggestions. If the printer's defaults already match the requirements, then you can skip the rest of this task.
To Change the Printer’s Serial Interface Settings
Through the front-panel display, you can create and save two sets of configurations for the serial interface, called Configurations A and B. By default, they are set to the factory defaults shown in the table above. The factory default configuration is always available as well, giving you up to three stored configurations to choose from.
The instructions that follow explain how to specify and apply Configuration A.
