Initially featureless asides from the power switch, the right side also holds a removable panel
which covers the I/O section of the printer. A metal casing
further protects the components here from EMI, and it can be levered open
with the metal tab towards the front of the case.
Under this panel lies the 'motherboard' of the
printer, where you can find the two memory slots, a pair of compact
flash connectors for adding extra fonts, and the EIO port.
As you'd expect,
the rear of the LaserJet 2420dn holds the various interface ports. IEEE 1284
(parallel), USB 2.0 and 10/100 Ethernet were all represented on our model. The metal plate on the top
left covers the vacant EIO port.
