Installing a printer hard disk

    CAUTION—SHOCK HAZARD:  If you are accessing the controller board or installing optional hardware or memory devices sometime after setting up the printer, then turn the printer off, and unplug the power cord from the electrical outlet before continuing. If you have any other devices attached to the printer, then turn them off as well, and unplug any cables going into the printer.

    Warning—Potential Damage:  Controller board electronic components are easily damaged by static electricity. Touch a metal surface on the printer before touching any controller board electronic components or connectors.

  1. Access the controller board.

    For more information, see Accessing the controller board.

  2. Unpack the printer hard disk.

  3. Install the printer hard disk on the controller board.

    1. Using a flat‑head screwdriver, loosen the screws.

    2. Insert the plug of the printer hard disk interface cable into the receptacle of the controller board.

      Note:  The plug and the receptacle are color‑coded blue.

    3. Align the screws on the printer hard disk to the slots on the controller board bracket, and then slide the printer hard disk onto the brackets.

    4. Tighten the two screws.

  4. Close the controller board shield, and then close the controller board access door.

    Note:  When the printer software and any hardware options are installed, you may need to manually add the options in the printer driver to make them available for print jobs. For more information, see Adding available options in the print driver.
