New for 2019: HP Color LaserJet 4700n
  
This is a Black and White duplex printer with it's own Jetdirect card and will possibly replace the Laserjet 1022.
+
The Hackspace's current office / general use printer is a HP Color LaserJet 4700n.  It lives next to Tesla on the reception desk. Please treat with care.  
  
* Replacement toner: 96A
+
* Current IP address for the LaserJet 4700n is: 10.0.70.147
* Location: Beside the desk with [[Lovelace]].
+
* How to connect: Use IP address.
* Paper size: A4
+
* Protocol: Select HP JetDirect Socket (if available). This lets you set most if not all of the printer features.  
* Type: Black and white laser printer
+
* Other Protocol options (less full featured): AirPrint (for iOS devices) and IPP for everything else.  LPD is ancient and best avoided.
* Static IP address allocated via DHCP: 172.31.24.9
 
* Status: Working.
 
* Duplex (2 sided) printing - '''Under installable options on your printer configuration set "Duplex Unit (for 2-sided printing)" to "installed"'''
 
 
   
 
   
Driver: HP Laserjet 2200 driver comes with most operating systems. You can use a PCL or Postscript driver.
+
Cost per A4 page:  
  
It's auto discoverable via mDNS from Mac OS, Windows 7, Linux and various other operating systems.
+
* 5p Mono (Black & white)
 +
* 10p Colour
  
If you need to set it manually the hostname is caxton and the ip address is 172.31.24.9. It supports HP Raw printing, LPD and IPP via ipp://caxton.lan.hack.rs:631/ipp
+
Pay by putting coins into the kitty / charity chugger menace weapon (gives +3 pester power) hanging next to it.
  
When setting a printer up manually configure it to connect to a printer over the network to the hostname "caxton" or if necessary the IP address, then if prompted select HP Raw printing, LPD or ipp and then select HP Laserjet 2200 (PCL or Postscript) as the print driver.

Genuine HP toner cartridges are somewhat expensive, so use "remanufactured" ones instead. [https://www.amazon.co.uk/Remanufactured-Replacement-Q5950A-1A-2A-Cyan/dp/B077RYFPHC/ heres some on Amazon that have been proven to work.] The printer will complain about non-genuine toner, but prints as normal.

- Use the new toner's box to recycle the old one and stick the postage-paid form on it. Then drop it to the post office
 
 
 
- Alternatively you can print your own forms on [https://h30248.www3.hp.com/recycle/ereturns/ordermaterials-cs.asp?__cc=gb&__la=en&segment=ho&focus=IJ| HP recycle's site here].

The version of ubuntu we run on babbage has a bug that means it dosn't share printers via dns-sd (aka rendevous, bonjour, mdns), see this:

Looks like this works now (?)
