without formatter, your dj800 is in dj500 mode.... I google it & found this one :

https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/closure/hp-designjet-500-printer-series/25301?ssfFl...

Before I used dj500, dj800 for over 15 years, due to dye ink fade too fast &  now I using Z3200 44" pigmented inks.

PCL driver should work nice .....good luck.

PS: my PC is 64bit Win 7, not sure yours, if 32bit & find that 32bit PCL... ok..

after download, click that file, it will unzip onto another sub-directory,

go to printer property...right click    dj800  ...  property    change setting.... update driver ... point it to that directory....

because  i do not have tat dj500 printer & can not tell you exact steps......  

bye.............
