Jump to navigationJump to searchThe HP LaserJet 5 was a group of monochrome laser printers produced in the mid-1990s as part of the LaserJet series by Hewlett Packard (HP). It was the successor to the HP LaserJet 4 series of printers. After the LaserJet 5 series, however, HP introduced a new naming convention for its LaserJet line. While the LaserJet 5L and 5P were replaced with the LaserJet 6L and 6P, there was never a LaserJet 6; the successor to the LaserJet 5/5M/5N/5se line was the LaserJet 4000 series, and the successor to the LaserJet 5si/5siMX/5siNX was the LaserJet 8000 series. In addition, the LaserJet 4V/4MV was not succeeded by a LaserJet 5 series printer, as its successor was the LaserJet 5000 series.Contents1LaserJet 5 range2Tips And Tricks2.15/5N/5M Unofficial memory capacity2.55/5N/5M/5Si Jetdirect cards3ReferencesLaserJet 5 rangeComparison table of HP LaserJet 5 modelsModelIntroductionCanon print enginePrint resolution(DPI)Print speed(PPM)Standard memory(RAM in MB)Maximum memory(RAM in MB)5Si (5Si MX)November 1995WX (24PPM)600244/12132/76Tips And Tricks5/5N/5M Unofficial memory capacityThe LaserJet 5/5N/5M can unofficially support 32MB 72pin SIMM modules (with presence detect), allowing a maximum 128MB of memory to be installed. This is twice the official capacity of 66MB. Use of the PostScript module will reduce the total maximum memory to 100MB due to the fact that the PostScript module takes up a memory slot and has only 4MB of RAM used in printing. The 72-pin SIMMs must also be 32-bit, no parity, with presence detect enabled, and 70ns or slower.5Si Network ConnectionThe LaserJet 5Si comes without a network adaptor, but an expansion slot is provided, and the firmware supports network printing. If an added network card can not be enabled, reset the printer to default factory settings - to do this, power off the printer, press and hold the online button and switch on the printer. Allow the printer to fully boot, then release the button. The printer is now reset to factory defaults, and the network configuration should now work.5M/5Si Jetdirect cardsThese printers have an expansion slot used with a JetDirect card for I/O expansion.
