About HP LaserJet 5200 Service Manual

HP LaserJet 5200 Series printers - Printer software
The printing-system software is included with the printer. See the getting started guide for installation instructions. The printing system includes software for end users and network administrators, and printer drivers for access to the printer features and communication with the computer.

HP LaserJet 5200 Printer drivers

Printer drivers allow you to gain access to the printer features and allow the computer to communicate with the printer (using a printer language). Check the installation notes and readme files on the printer CD for additional software and languages.
The HP LaserJet 5200 Series printers uses the PCL 5e, PCL 6, and PostScript 3 emulation printer description language (PDL) drivers.

  • Use the PCL 6 printer driver for the best overall performance.
  • Use the PCL 5 printer driver for general office printing.
  • Use the PS driver for printing from PostScript-based programs, for compatibility with PostScript Level 3 needs, or for PS flash font support.

HP LaserJet 5200 Installing printer memory

You might want to add more printer memory to the printer if you often print complex graphics, print PostScript (PS) documents, or use many downloaded fonts. Added memory also gives you more flexibility in supporting job-storage features, such as quick copying. One DIMM slot and two CompactFlash slots (CompactFlash slots are not available for the HP LaserJet 5200L) are available for upgrading the printer with the following item:

  • More printer memory—DIMMs are available in 32, 64, 128, 256, and 512 MB.
  • CompactFlash font cards—Unlike standard printer memory, CompactFlash cards can be used to permanently store downloaded items, such as fonts and forms, even when the printer is off. These cards can also be used to enable the printer to print non-Roman characters.
  • Other DIMM- and CompactFlash-based printer languages and printer options.

HP LaserJet 5200 Checking DIMM installation

After installing the DIMM, make sure that the installation was successful. To verify that DIMMs are installed correctly

  1. Turn the printer on. Check that the Ready light is illuminated after the printer has gone through the startup sequence. If an error message appears, a DIMM might have been incorrectly installed.
  2. Print a configuration page (see Configuration pages on page 283).
  3. Check the memory section on the configuration page and compare it to the configuration page that was printed before the memory installation. If the amount of memory has not increased, the DIMM might not be installed correctly, or the DIMM might be defective. Repeat the installation procedure. If necessary, install a different DIMM.

HP LaserJet 5200 Checking CompactFlash installation

After installing the CompactFlash card, make sure that the installation was successful. To verify that CompactFlash cards are installed correctly

  1. Turn the printer on. Check that the Ready light is illuminated after the printer has gone through the startup sequence. If an error message appears, a CompactFlash card might have been incorrectly installed.
  2. Print a configuration page (see Configuration pages on page 283).
  3. Check the installed personalities and options section on the configuration page and compare it to the configuration page that was printed before to verify CompactFlash installation. If there is not any information on the installed CompactFlash card, repeat the installation procedure. If necessary, install a different CompactFlash card.
