Miscellaneous

Printer supports direct text printing with the 'us-ascii' charset.

Comments

For basic printing functionality use the HPIJS driver . For advanced functionality such as printer status and maintenance features, use the HPLIP driver (which includes HPIJS).

Same printer as 842C.

Older comments:

Works out of the box with various PCL3 drivers.
Under Linux this printer does up to 600x600dpi in colour with CRET. To obtain this use the Gimp-Print driver (4.1.99) in 600x600 dpi, or the cdj880 or cdj970 drivers with RET turned on and presentation quality.

The german magazine c't - Magazin fuer Computertechnik (21/2000) recommends for the HP DeskJet 840C:
Text: cdj670/300x300
Photo: cdj880/2400x2400
STP not tested.

Consumables/Refills: One cartridge for black, another for CMY
