Information about any printer accessible within the Noisebridge network should be listed here. If you're adding a new printer, a good suggestion would be to post user/password information physically onto the printer.

If you need to connect to a printer try searching for printers within your OS's printer config doodad. Currently they should automagically show up, if not see what tossing around the IP address of a printer can do for you.

HP Color LaserJet Pro 1525nw

Color laser printer with both USB and built-in tcp/ip ethernet networking. It prints up to 12ppm black and up to 8ppm color. It has 128 MB memory. Uses 4 toner cartridges: cyan, magenta, yellow, black. Purchased new for Noisebridge. The purchase included a 1-year warranty.

Details about this printer are on hp's website: HP LaserJet Pro CP1525 Color Printer series - Overview and Features .

The i.p. address (as of February 6, 2011) is .

This printer uses all 4 of the following toner cartridges:

HP 128A Cyan LaserJet Toner Cartridge CE321A

HP 128A Magenta LaserJet Toner Cartridge CE323A

HP 128A Yellow LaserJet Toner Cartridge CE322A

HP 128A Black LaserJet Toner Cartridge CE320A

Brother HL-5140

Currently hooked up to Zebra. Shared via IPP. Select the Brother HL-5140 specific PPD for faster printing. The generic postscript PPD should work fine, but be prepared to wait ~60 seconds per page. Note that SMB sharing is not enabled, you have to use IPP.

HP LaserJet 5Si MX (treechopper)

Speaks the usual JetDirect stuff on port 9000. Supports PCL and Postscript. See the Network page for the current address.

  • Use the "plus" sign below the list of printers to add a printer.
