Downgrade printer firmware

Downgrade printer firmware

Downgrade printer firmware

(OP)
Hi

We have two HP3005 printers w/different firmware versions

PRT01 20110406 02.140.2
PRT02 20080411 02.040.2

When these printers print the same report in landscape, PRT01 trims/omit about the first 8 positions. What I want to try, if possible, is downgrade PRT01's firmware to PRT02's. They're identical printers/identical drivers.

Can you downgrade old firmware? I haven't been able to locate it.

Thanks

RE: Downgrade printer firmware

I don't have an answer to your question, but I am suspicious.

Can you print to a file through the setup that prints properly?

If so, then copy the file directly to each of the two printers
and compare the results?

RE: Downgrade printer firmware

Have you printed and stepped through the printer's configuration menus to verify all the settings are identical?  There could be a setting that's different that you'd notice only with a line per line comparison?
