Help: HP Laserjet 5M - how to replace cartridge?

Archived from groups: comp.sys.hp.hardware (More info?)

Hi
I have got a second hand HP Laserjet 5M printer with no manual book.
I have set it up for my home network and it now works fine (tricky
though.
Any one wants to know how to set it up please let me know).

Yesterday I was trying to pull the cartridge out but it seems it's
locked there.
I am not sure what is supposed to be the correct way to take it out.
I don't
want to break anything. Is there any lock/mechanism I need to
release before
I pull it out or just pull it hard until it comes out?

Any one who has experience on this printer please help. Thank you.

    Lift up slightly on the cartridge as you remove it. The 5M does not really LOCK
    the cartridge into place... Ben Myers

    Thanks Ben. I'll try. It was pretty tight.

    I have now connected my Win98 computer to the 5M printer by installing a program acitlp95.exe

    I am not sure what the program acitlp95.exe does, but the LJ5M has drivers on
    the Windows 98CD and also from the Adobe (owners of PostScript) web site.

    I asked for help in this group about a week ago on this issue. (Thanks
    for the help from people including you).

    The problem was that the printer was not visible as a network printer.
    Using the HP printer installation wizard did help. IP address and MAC
    address didn't help.

    With my WinXP machines I installed the printer as local and specify
    TCP/IP port. With Win98 however I couldn't do the same. acitlp95.exe
    creates TCP/IP port and allow connection to the printer.

    I am not very competent in IT. Hope I explained it correctly. Although
    the problem is solved I still don't understand why. I was thinking about
    two possible exlenations:

    1) 5M is an "IP printer" but not a todays "network printer".
    2) The wireless router I use played some sort of role in the problem.
    (But my other print server plugged into a Cannon printer has no
    problem at all).

    I am well familiar with the LJ 5M and 5N. I run two of them in my small office.
    Very inexpensive to run and reliable. There is little difference between the
    networking capabilities of the LJ 5M and today's printers. The newer HP (and
    other brand) printer network cards also can be set up to be accessed across the
    web, but in practice only very large enterprises would usually use this feature.

    I am surprised that the HP install printer installation wizard did not succeed
    in setting up the printer on the Windows 98 computers.

    The wireless router should not cause any problem. But you should make sure that
    the HP printer has an assigned and fixed IP address NOT within the range of IP
    addresses used by the router's DHCP server assign addresses to computers when
    they power up... Ben Myers

    BTW, I have taken the cartridge out last night without breaking anything^_^

    The trick is what you said to lift it up little bit.

    Thanks a lot.

    I have set the printer IP address as 192.168.0.10 (within the range of 192.168.0.0...
    ....192.168.0.50 set in the router) and I have let the router to reserve the
    address for this printer as I did for the other printer. I can see the priter from
    the router configuration interface with no problem. Just can't see the printer as a
    member of the network either from my WinXP machines or Win98 machine.

    In general, when the router provides IP addresses to network client devices via
    DHCP, any device or computer with a fixed IP address must have its IP address
    OUTSIDE the range of addresses supplied by the DHCP server.

    It is also most common in a Windows network to assign network printers fixed IP
    addresses, as you have done. Other networks may be able to handle IP addresses
    dynamically assigned by DHCP to a LaserJet JetDirect, but not Windows. A
    JetDirect card does allow IP assignment via DHCP, but don't use this option.

    Thanks Ben

    I might try to set the IP outside the DHCP range.

    By all means, do so. In theory, a DHCP server should work around a fixed IP
    address in the range. In practice, not all DHCP servers respond gracefully to
    this condition... Ben Myers

    Ben, I haven't tried a different IP address yet. I now found another problem.

    With acitlp95.exe, my Win98 machine can print to LJ 5M. However I can't print
    from IE while printing from Textpad and MS Word is OK, When I print a web page
    nothing happens. No print queue no error message.

    What can this be?
