Update May 30: This utility will also work with the DNP DSRX1 Photo Booth Printer.
Want to know how many prints you have made on your DNP DS 40 or DNP DS 80? Want to know how much media is left in the printer? Well, unfortunately, there is no print counter on the front of these machines. In fact, there is no LCD panel at all. Enter PrinterInfo v1.0 – yes that is really the name of this software application. It ain’t pretty but it get’s the job done. Launch DNP printer info and you will get updated stats on your printer.
This little app and the manual can be downloaded from DNP. Go to the following site and download the User Manual: PrinterInfo and the Status Display Tool: PrinterInfo…
The app will download as Setup Launcher Unicode DNPPIA. Click twice and run the installer. It will install in the directory C:DNPPIA\PrinterInfo. Open the folder and double-click on PrinterInfo.exe (PLEASE NOTE: Do not run the application while the printer is printing) Click on yes. You will see a screen similar to the shot above with info on your DNP printers. Uh-oh, getting low on media? Better call Imaging Spectrum 😉
