Important notes regarding these Font and Firmware DIMMs


The font and firmware DIMM’s shown above are optional upgrades for all network and non-network versions for P2015 duplex and non-duplex printers. These memory products were originally designed to supplement the PCL 5 fonts included in the basic version of P2015/d/dn printers. All P2015 printers contain at least 22 PCL 5 fonts, 81 PCL 6 fonts, and 160 PostScript fonts. These font DIMM’s increase the total number of PCL 5 fonts from 22 to either 105, 110, or 127. Some enhanced versions of the P2015 printers were sold with the font DIMM’s pre-installed at the factory.

Note: The optional font and firmware DIMM’s shown on this page are not compatible with the similar P2014 printer models which use host-based rasterization, instead of PCL and PostScript. Host-based rasterization involves developing the entire image in the memory of the computer workstation and is often used for languages with a large number of complex characters.

The purpose of the font DIMM is to add most of the fixed-point and scalable fonts typically found in previously introduced and historically much more expensive HP LaserJet products so that the P2015 printers become compatible with legacy software applications which sent PCL and PostScript page descriptions calling for these fonts to be resident in the printer. These additional fonts are required for the P2015 printers to become compatible replacements for older HP printer models in certain specific software environments such as some enterprise accounting systems. Legacy mainframe software which send PostScript and PCL data streams directly to the printer (without using a workstation operating system driver to intercede and download bit-mapped soft fonts as needed) are often the sort of applications which require certain hard fonts and scalable fonts to be printer resident.

As the P2015 product has matured, HP engineers introduced firmware updates to add features, correct bugs, and maintain and add software compatibility with evolving network protocols. Most PC users will never encounter a need for updated software as the updates relate to very esoteric situations. HP typically makes firmware updates freely available on some of its websites, but the process to upgrade the printer firmware is tedious and requires some technical knowledge. If the process is not done correctly, the printer formatter can become non-functional. To make firmware updates easy for novices, HP chose to add the firmware updates to the second generation of the firmware DIMM’s.


The basic P2015 printer, without a font DIMM installed contains 22 fixed-size PCL 5 fonts..

All versions of the P2015 printers, with or without a font DIMM contain 81 scalable PCL 6 fonts. The PCL 5 font DIMM’s do not add any additional PCL 6 fonts. All versions of the P2015 printers contain 160 PostScript scalable PostScript typefaces. The PCL 5 Font DIMM do not add any additional PostScript fonts..


The table at the top of this page shows the fonts DIMMs and provides links to PDF file printouts of the fonts which are resident in the printer when the DIMM’s are installed. The CB456A DIMM is only a PCL 5 font DIMM. The CE517-6790X DIMM can also be used to update the printer firmware. Detailed information with links to PDF scans of actual printed fonts lists is included to answer all questions about which fonts are included. This information was difficult to find anywhere on the web, so we decided to include it here.
