Installing Flash SIMMs in the HP Laser Jet 5P and 5MP laser printers
Step A- To Open the Removable Side Panel
Turn the printer off and disconnect the power cord. The printer is off
when the on/off button is not pushed in.
Open the interface cable door, and disconnect all of the interface cables.
Open the top cover by pressing the Top Cover Release button on the side of
the printer. Press the removable side panel release latch (A) and slide the
removable side panel forward to the front of the printer (B) about 0.5 inches
(1 cm) until the alignment arrows (C) line up.
Pull the removable side panel away from the printer.
Before removing a new SIMM from its package or removing a SIMM from the printer,
follow the static protection guidelines below.
Step B - To Insert the SIMM
Even very small amounts of static electricity can damage the SIMM. When handling
the SIMM, follow all the instructions below
To protect the SIMM during installation, take the following precautions:
Wear an antistatic wrist strap, or touch the surface of the antistatic package
and any bare metal in the printer before removing the SIMM from its package.
To prevent generation of more static electricity, avoid moving about the
work area. Do not touch any other electronic devices, such as your telephone
or your PC.
Handle the SIMM carefully at all times.
Remove the SIMM from the antistatic package. Do not flex the SIMM or touch
any of its connection traces. Ensure that the blue jumper is installed on
Select the slot you want to use. (Use slots in this order--1, 2, 3.)
Align the notch on the bottom of the SIMM with the notch on the bottom of
the connector in the slot, holding the SIMM at a 30-degree angle.
Push the SIMM into the back of the slot to seat it firmly.
Rotate the SIMM to the side until the clips on the edges of the slot snap
into place (you will feel and hear a "click").
Check to make sure the SIMM is seated properly. If the SIMM is installed
securely, the two side pegs on the SIMM latch will show through the two guide
holes on the SIMM as shown.
Step C - To Replace the Removable Side Panel
Align the alignment arrow on the removable side panel with the alignment
arrow on the side of the printer.
Slide the panel toward the back of the printer until you feel it seat firmly
Reconnect the interface cables.
Close the printer's top cover.
Test the Flash SIMM by printing a status page from the programming software
or by sending the PCL codes to activate the images stored on the Flash SIMM
if it was pre-programmed.
