HP All-in-One overview
Use the HP All-in-One to quickly and easily accomplish tasks such as making a copy,
scanning documents, or printing photos from a memory card. You can access many
HP All-in-One functions directly from the control panel, without turning on your
computer.
Note This guide introduces basic operations and troubleshooting, as well as
providing information for contacting HP support and ordering supplies.
The onscreen Help details the full range of features and functions, including
use of the HP Photosmart software that came with the HP All-in-One. For more
information, see Access the onscreen Help on page 8.
Copy
The HP All-in-One allows you to produce high-quality color and black-and-white
copies on a variety of paper types. You can enlarge or reduce the size of an original to
fit a specific paper size, adjust the copy quality, and make high-quality copies of
photos, including borderless copies.
Scan
Scanning is the process of converting text and pictures into an electronic format for
your computer. You can scan almost anything (photos, magazine articles and text
documents) on the HP All-in-One.
Print photos
The HP All-in-One is equipped with memory card slots which enable you to insert a
memory card and begin printing photos from your digital camera without uploading
your photos to a computer first. Additionally, if the HP All-in-One is connected to a
computer with a USB cable, you can also transfer your photos to the computer to
print, edit, or share.
Warning Do not insert more than one memory card at a time. If more than
one memory card is inserted, unrecoverable data loss might occur.
Print from your computer
The HP All-in-One can be used with any software application that allows printing. You
can print a range of projects, such as borderless images, newsletters, greeting cards,
iron-on transfers, and posters.

Grounded power outlet
If you are using a power strip, make sure the power strip is on. Or, try plugging the
HP All-in-One directly into a grounded power outlet.
Test the power outlet to make sure it is working. Plug in an appliance that you know
works, and see if the appliance has power. If not, then there might be a problem with
the power outlet.
If you plugged the HP All-in-One into a switched outlet, make sure the switch is on. If it
is switched to on but still does not work, then there might be a problem with the power
outlet.

Once you have installed the software, connecting your computer to the HP All-in-One with a
USB cable is straightforward. Simply plug one end of the USB cable into the back of your
computer and the other into the back of the HP All-in-One. You can connect to any USB
port on the back of your computer.
For more information on installing the software and connecting the USB cable, see the
Setup Guide that came with the HP All-in-One.

Troubleshooting and support
●
Open the print cartridge door to access the print carriage area. Remove any objects
that are blocking the print carriage, including any packing materials. Turn the HP All-inOne off and then turn it on again.
Check that the HP All-in-One print queue is not paused (Windows) or stopped (Mac). If
it is, choose the appropriate setting to resume printing. For more information about
accessing the print queue, see the documentation that came with the operating system
installed on your computer.
Check the USB cable. If you are using an older cable, it might not be working properly.
Try connecting it to another product to see if the USB cable works. If you experience
problems, the USB cable might need to be replaced. Also verify that the cable does
not exceed 3 meters (9.8 feet) in length.
Make sure your computer is USB ready. Some operating systems, such as Windows
95 and Windows NT, do not support USB connections. Check the documentation that
came with your operating system for more information.
Check the connection from the HP All-in-One to your computer. Verify that the USB
cable is securely plugged into the USB port on the back of the HP All-in-One. Make
sure the other end of the USB cable is plugged into a USB port on your computer.
After the cable is connected properly, turn the HP All-in-One off and then on again.
If you are connecting the HP All-in-One through a USB hub, make sure the hub is
turned on. If the hub is on, try connecting directly to your computer.
Check other printers or scanners. You might need to disconnect older products from
your computer.
Try connecting the USB cable to another USB port on your computer. After you check
the connections, try restarting your computer. Turn the HP All-in-One off and then on
again.
If the HP All-in-One is offline, turn the HP All-in-One off and on again. Start a print job.
If necessary, remove and then install the software you installed with the HP All-in-One
again.

defects in materials and workmanship for the duration specified above, which duration begins on the date of purchase
by the customer.
2. For software products, HP's limited warranty applies only to a failure to execute programming instructions. HP does
not warrant that the operation of any product will be uninterrupted or error free.
3. HP's limited warranty covers only those defects that arise as a result of normal use of the product, and does not cover
any other problems, including those that arise as a result of:
a. Improper maintenance or modification;
b. Software, media, parts, or supplies not provided or supported by HP;
c. Operation outside the product's specifications;
d. Unauthorized modification or misuse.
4. For HP printer products, the use of a non-HP ink cartridge or a refilled ink cartridge does not affect either the warranty
to the customer or any HP support contract with the customer. However, if printer failure or damage is attributable to
the use of a non-HP or refilled ink cartridge, HP will charge its standard time and materials charges to service the
printer for the particular failure or damage.
5. If HP receives, during the applicable warranty period, notice of a defect in any product which is covered by HP's
warranty, HP shall either repair or replace the product, at HP's option.
6. If HP is unable to repair or replace, as applicable, a defective product which is covered by HP's warranty, HP shall,
within a reasonable time after being notified of the defect, refund the purchase price for the product.
7. HP shall have no obligation to repair, replace, or refund until the customer returns the defective product to HP.
8. Any replacement product may be either new or like-new, provided that it has functionality at least equal to that of the
product being replaced.
9. HP products may contain remanufactured parts, components, or materials equivalent to new in performance.
10. HP's Limited Warranty Statement is valid in any country where the covered HP product is distributed by HP. Contracts
for additional warranty services, such as on-site service, may be available from any authorized HP service facility in
countries where the product is distributed by HP or by an authorized importer.

OTHER WARRANTY OR CONDITION OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR
CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY, SATISFACTORY QUALITY, AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
PURPOSE.
C. Limitations of liability
1. To the extent allowed by local law, the remedies provided in this Warranty Statement are the customer's sole and
exclusive remedies.
2. TO THE EXTENT ALLOWED BY LOCAL LAW, EXCEPT FOR THE OBLIGATIONS SPECIFICALLY SET FORTH IN

from state to state in the United States, from province to province in Canada, and from country to country elsewhere
in the world.
2. To the extent that this Warranty Statement is inconsistent with local law, this Warranty Statement shall be deemed
modified to be consistent with such local law. Under such local law, certain disclaimers and limitations of this Warranty
Statement may not apply to the customer. For example, some states in the United States, as well as some
governments outside the United States (including provinces in Canada), may:

(e.g., the United Kingdom);
b. Otherwise restrict the ability of a manufacturer to enforce such disclaimers or limitations; or
c. Grant the customer additional warranty rights, specify the duration of implied warranties which the manufacturer
cannot disclaim, or allow limitations on the duration of implied warranties.
3. THE TERMS IN THIS WARRANTY STATEMENT, EXCEPT TO THE EXTENT LAWFULLY PERMITTED, DO NOT
EXCLUDE, RESTRICT, OR MODIFY, AND ARE IN ADDITION TO, THE MANDATORY STATUTORY RIGHTS
APPLICABLE TO THE SALE OF THE HP PRODUCTS TO SUCH CUSTOMERS.
