I was onsite today checking out problems with a network printer that was causing a massive problem on the network. It’s network card was jabbering so badly that it caused 90% packet loss to pings between systems on the network. The printer is a HP Color Laser Jet 3800 DN and I have no idea when it was purchased or even if it was still under warranty. I used a HP web site and entered the machines part number and serial number and it immediately told me if it was under warranty – how cool is that?
You can use the website located here to check the warranty status of most HP business level products. Thanks to Mel in our office for letting me know about this little gem.
