Tom, can you provide a link to this technical newsletter. I can't find it despite a determined search.
Can I mention again how much I hate the HP websites?
Well I logged onto HP's site (it is very confusing and hierarchical isn't it?), and first selected my products, and then Tips and Tricks section which brings up a list of PDF files. Old files here for v 5 firmware. This is where I thought I got it from, and when I clicked on a link that sounded promising the page comes up as inaccessible.
For a long pause, I cannot remember if I originally got my pdf via the old link which was at...
» Working with non HP papers (Update for firmware 5) (1.5 MB PDF)*
and now doesn't work, or through a newer link which sadly isn't showing as available. So...
I searched HP using part of the name of the newsletter "Profile Other Commercially available Paper" as the search term worldwide and got the following...
This is the page which has downloadable paper presets listed for my Model Z3100ps GP. Scroll down to the first break where you see the following text which contains the links. Not sure if these links will work or not, but you should be able to find it.
At the table break the text reads as follows (I added the links for you, YMMV)...
* Make sure you are using the latest firmware. If your paper selection is not on this list, use the paper type available in the front panel of your printer.

In true to the Zed HP form these links all refer to v220.127.116.11 Firmware and the Z3100 & Z2100 models, but its on the page for my printer. My printer, the Z3100ps GP uses firmware version 18.104.22.168. One has to assume that this applies to me as well as the Z3100 users, but HP doesn't make this clear, and they won't treat me with the respect I wish I could get. ;-) I have asked them over and over for more clarity regarding the Z3100ps GP model vrs the rest of the Zed printers for over 6 months, and how it is referred to in their posting and web site and publications. Sigh.
I hope this helps.
So long for now, TOM
