designjet 455ca drivers

I acquired a 455ca (36) designjet, Where can I find drivers for XP, vista, or windows 7?  The plotter is in excellent condition and I just replaced the drive belt.  It appears to be ready to work but I cannot connect it to any of our computers.

The 64 bit version of the XP driver is available here.  It should work fine on 64 bit versions of XP, Vista and Windows 7.   Unzip the file to a temporary directory, then go to Add Printer and select "Have a disk", then point to the directory where you unzipped the driver.

 

For 32 bit systems download the XP driver here.  This should work for 32 bit version of Vista and Windows 7 as well.

Re: designjet 455ca drivers

I have a hp designjet 455ca.  I am in need of the print drivers.  I am running Vista 32 bit.  I have tried the posted links that are listed and they do not work.  Does anyone know where I can go to get these drivers.  HP basically told me I have a very expensive boat anchor :(  Any help would greatly be appreciated.

Re: designjet 455ca drivers

How is the plotter connected?  These days most computers do not have parallel port so people us a usb to parallel adapter and most times the adapter is the issue and not the drivers.

Re: designjet 455ca drivers

Thanks for the lead to the DesignJet 455CA (D) driver for 64 bit windows 7 system. I downloaded and installed the pl532en driver that is supposed to work with 64 bit windows 7. It seemed everything went fine with the install until the test page submission, which resulted in a error msg from the printer. The msg states "A print job in the print queue is preventing other print jobs from printing." It automatically 'fixed' the error. However, when I submit an another item for printing it does the same thing. How can I get beyond this? I loaded the driver vor the 455 CA version D 24 inch printer.  The attached  'details' log shows this as the only problem. Hope someone knows what to do! I's sure appreciate a solution to this . Thanks,

 

John

Here the links i found for thread:

I tried to install the driver at link: Mediafire

The Install crashes with error: "der hashwert ist ungültig"

 

The driver package at winline.com i have installed (successful) but the plotter don't work, the LED "reading" is flashing, the windows printer dashboard said it doesn't go after 20min.

Re: designjet 455ca drivers

Thank you David,
but this solution I've tried without result. Therefore I've tried to install like HP Forum1 and download the Driver like mediafire. The result is the same - it doesn't work.
Anybody an other idea?
