We are looking into other Designjet model support and hope to add support for them in the future.


My printer was not listed in the previous question, and is not listed in the product support table. When will a driver be available for my printer?


Our plan is to provide support for new printers as quickly as possible after they are introduced. Standard support timeframes vary from within 1 week to 1 month. However support can sometimes take longer than this.

Are drivers available for the Deskjet 710C, 712C, 720C, 722C, 820Cse, 820Cxi, 1000Cse, 1000Cxi; or Color LaserJet 1500, 2600 printers?


These are host based printers. Currently there are no plans to support these printers in HPLIP.  See the host-based printing article for more information.

Ghostscript print filters for the Deskjet products can be found at the pnm2ppa project.

What features are supported on my printer?


The list of supported printers and the features supported can be found on the products supported page.

My printer is unsupported, when will it be supported?


Most newer models are supported 2-3 weeks after the public release, sometimes even before that. Some older models that are not supported are being researched for possible support in the future, although this may or may not happen depending on the printer and technical details involved.

Some printers are unsupported and will most likely stay unsupported. The reasons for this may include issues with intellectual property, technical issues, or limited production numbers. Be advised that printers that appear on the unsupported list may never be supported by HPLIP.
