MFP serial #'s

MFP serial #'s

MFP serial #'s

Replaced formatters on a CM1312,and an M2727, but cant input the serial #'s. My serial JPL file works on every other printer I have, but not these two.
HP insists it works, but have given no further support. I use a network connection, and tried the USB to no avail.
Installed the "full solution" software {300mb!} but it does not install the ToolboxFX that would let me do that.
Any ideas?

RE: MFP serial #'s

I figured it out, no thanks to HP. They misdirected me at every turn. No ftp on these units.
The two M2727 MFP's needed a pjl command with an additional line and a net use lpt1 connection. One unit worked with the copy serial command, the other with a print serial command.
The CM1312 needed the standard pjl command, and the serial file printed from the dos box it is opened in.
All have their serial #'s and happy customers!
