Can’t work out how to set up design jet 1050c

HP Recommended
Hp design jet 1050c
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi all, I’ve recently picked up a 1050c but can’t get it to work. It didn’t come with any software and try as I might I can’t find any online that will work with it. If anyone can help I’d be grateful.

Getting an HP Designjet 1050c to work properly with WIN10 will be close to mission impossible.

That is an obsolete printer model and you can't expect that newest win10 will work on a device that is no longer supported for several years. Any chance you have an older computer running XP?

I've had very good luck using this driver from HP:

 

https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/hp-designjet-1000-printer-series/24023/model/12607

 

Select the Post Script driver, middle one listed.

 

This is the driver used on Vista 64.  Works good.  I have one set up on my laptop using Windows 10 and a TCP/IP port with an ethernet connection from laptop to printer but will also work with a USB/Serial cable.  USB/Serial cables are not all created equal so you may have to do some searching for one that will work.  The ethernet cable is much easier.

 

That same website has the drivers needed for XP also, though I've never tried that one.

 

Good luck.  Let us know how it works out.
