I would want to know if you could send me the user's manual by mail for this machine, or where I can find this document.

Thanks for your help.

Re: HP 7979

This product (and the 7980) was developed in the 1980s, and I believe discontinued in the later part of the 1990s.

The product was done before the days of .pdf files and web-based support, and I am not aware of any electronic versions available.

The manual shipped in paper form with the product. I looked in and there is no user manual, but there is a service manual still available.
