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 and to email our rack list.

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.

  • System Preferences
  • Print & Fax
    • Printing
  • Use the "plus" sign below the list of printers to add a printer.
  • New window comes up: "Printer Browser." Click "IP" tab, not "Default".
    • Under "Protocol" dropdown, select IPP.
    • Enter IP address below it: . Computer will validate it, and should identify it as HP Laserjet 5Si. The default printing (Gimp) works for me, but as mentioned the PCL and Postscript options are available.
    • Click "add", close extra window.
  • Back in "Print&Fax", at "Selected Printer in Print Dialog" pick this printer. Or, when you go to print something, choose as your printer among your options.

The chip in the imaging drum of this printer tells it not to allow you to print from it anymore. The chip can be pried off of the imaging drum and replaced with a chip that has been pried off a spent HP toner cartridge.
