Software for Windows-based computers
Network administrators: If the printer is attached to a network
through an HP JetDirect EIO card, the printer must be configured for
that network before you can print. For Microsoft and Novell NetWare
networks, you can use the printer installation software. For other
options, refer to the HP JetDirect Print Server Administrator’s Guide
(included with printers that contain an HP JetDirect print server).
Use the Customization Utility option to create a set of disks with the
exact software you want the end users to use. This allows you to
distribute drivers without distributing administration software to end
users.

Choose the right printer driver for your needs
Choose a printer driver based on the way you use the printer.
●
Use the PCL 6 driver to take full advantage of the printer’s
features. Unless backward compatibility with previous PCL
drivers or older printers is necessary, the PCL 6 driver is
recommended.
●
Use the PCL 5e driver if you want print results to look comparable
to those from older printers, or for font DIMM support.
●
Use the PS driver for compatibility with PostScript Level 2.
Certain features are not available in this driver.
●
The printer automatically switches between PS and PCL printer
languages.
Printer driver help
Each printer driver has help screens that can be activated either from
the Help button, the F1 key, or a question mark symbol in the upper
right corner in the printer driver (depending on the Windows operating
system used). These help screens give detailed information about the
specific driver. Printer driver help is separate from the software
application help.

HP JetSend communications technology
HP JetSend is a technology from HewlettPackard that allows devices to communicate
with each other simply and directly. HP
JetSend is built into your printer, allowing it to
receive information from any HP JetSendenabled sending device anywhere on your
network, whether it is in the same office or at
a remote location. When you use the HP Fast
InfraRed Receiver accessory, your printer can also receive
information from any HP JetSend-enabled infrared device. Examples
of HP JetSend sending devices include computers or laptops running
HP JetSend software or scanners with HP JetSend built in.
HP JetSend uses simple IP addressing between networked devices
and cableless communication between infrared devices.
To enable HP JetSend on your computer or laptop, visit the
HP JetSend website (www.jetsend.hp.com/products) for information
on HP JetSend software. With the software, you will be able to
exchange intra-company documents directly between two or more
computers and send to any HP JetSend enabled printers, without the
problems of incompatible software applications or versions.
HP JetSend software will allow your colleagues to create documents
on their computers and send copies directly to this printer without any
device-specific drivers or configuration difficulties.
You can visit the HP JetSend website to learn which other devices are
available to communicate easily and directly with your HP JetSendenabled printer.
Note
HP JetSend software is not supported for the languages of Japanese,
Korean, Simplified Chinese, or Traditional Chinese.

How the JetSend communications technology works
Networked devices
To use the HP JetSend capability between networked devices, print a
configuration page to find your HP JetSend IP address, and give your
address to anyone who wants to send information to your printer via
HP JetSend. (See “Configuration page” on page 152.)
From an HP JetSend sending device, a person only needs to enter
the printer’s IP address and press “send.”
Infrared devices
To use HP JetSend infrared capability, line up the infrared sensors
between the sending and receiving devices, and choose the “send”
option on the sending device.
The devices will automatically negotiate the best possible outcome
because they have HP JetSend in them.
Note

Printing tasks
Overview
This chapter presents basic printing tasks, such as:
●
selecting the output bin
●
loading the trays
●
printing on both sides of paper with the optional duplexer
●
printing on special paper, such as letterhead and transparencies
●
using the optional power envelope feeder
This chapter also introduces some advanced printing tasks:
EN
●
printing multiple originals
●
creating Quick Sets to save the printer’s setup information for
different kinds of print jobs
●
printing pages with a watermark in the background
●
printing the first page of a document on a different kind of paper
than the rest of the pages
●
printing multiple pages on one sheet of paper
●
printing booklets
●
printing with ZoomSmart
●
customizing what tray is used for printing
Overview 43
Selecting the output bin
The printer has two output locations: the rear output bin and the top
output bin. To use the top output bin, be sure the rear output bin is
closed. To use the rear output bin, open it.
●
If paper coming out of the top output bin has problems, such as
excessive curl, try printing to the rear output bin.
●
To avoid paper jams, do not open or close the rear output bin
while the printer is printing.
Printing to the top output bin
The top output bin collects paper face-down, in correct order. The top
output bin should be used for most print jobs and for transparencies.
44 Chapter 2 - Printing tasks
EN
Printing to the rear output bin
The printer always prints to the rear output bin if it is open. Paper
printed to this bin will be face-up, with the last page on top.
To open the rear output bin, grasp the handle at the top of the bin. Pull
the bin down, and slide out the extension.
Printing from tray 1 to the rear output bin provides the straightest
paper path (which can reduce curl). Opening the rear output bin might
improve performance with the following:
Note
EN
●
envelopes
●
labels
●
small custom-size paper
●
postcards
●
paper heavier than 28 lb (105 g/m2)
Opening the rear output bin disables the optional duplexer (if installed)
and the top output bin.
Selecting the output bin 45
Loading tray 1
1
2
3
Tray 1 is a multi-purpose tray that holds
up to 100 sheets of paper, 10 envelopes,
or 20 index cards. The printer’s default is
to pull paper from tray 1 first. To change
this, see “Customizing tray 1 operation”
on page 69.
Tray 1 provides a convenient way to print
envelopes, transparencies, custom-size
paper, or other types of media without
having to unload the other trays. It can
also be used just as a convenient
additional input tray. For supported sizes
of paper, see “Supported sizes and
weights of paper” on page 189.
Note
To avoid paper jams, do not load trays
while the printer is printing.
1
Open tray 1.
2
Pull out the tray extension.
3
Set the side guides to the desired
width.
4
Load paper in the tray.
4
Note
Make sure the paper fits under the tabs
on the guides and not above the load
level indicators.
5
Generally, load paper with the side to be
printed up, and the top, short edge
toward the printer. For information on
loading special paper, see “Printing
special paper” on page 53.

2A
Trays 2, 3, and 4 are 500-sheet paper
trays. Tray 3 is optional and comes with
the 4100TN and 4100DTN models. Tray
4 is an additional 500-sheet option.
The trays adjust for six standard sizes of
media, as well as for many custom sizes
(for details, see “Supported sizes and
weights of paper - trays 2, 3, and 4” on
page 190). Three adjustments on the
trays let the printer sense the paper size
that is loaded.
Note
To avoid paper jams, do not load trays
while the printer is printing.
1
Pull the tray completely out of the
printer.
2
If the tray is not already set to the
desired paper size, you will need to
make up to three adjustments:
2B
2A: To adjust the width, squeeze the
lever on the left guide and slide the
guides into place to match the width
of the paper.
2C
2B: To adjust the length, squeeze
the lever on the rear paper guide and
slide it to the desired paper size until
it clicks into place. Standard sizes
are labeled. For A5-size paper, lift
the metal backstop near the center
of the tray.
2C: To make the third adjustment,
squeeze the blue tab located on the
right side of the tray and move it to
the correct position based on the
paper size required.

Printing both sides of paper (optional duplexer)
The printer can automatically print on both sides of paper with an
optional duplex printing accessory (duplexer). This is called
duplexing.
The duplexer supports the following paper sizes: Letter, Legal,
Executive, A4, and B5 (JIS). It does not support custom sizes.
Note
See the documentation included with the duplexer for installation
instructions. Duplexing might require additional memory (see “Printer
memory and expansion” on page 229).
The tray 2 dust cover must be removed when the optional duplexer is
installed.

Printing both sides of paper (optional duplexer) 49
Guidelines for printing both sides of paper
Note the following guidelines:
●
Do not print on both sides of labels, transparencies, envelopes,
vellum, or paper heavier than 28 lb (105 g/m2). Paper jamming
might occur with these types of media, and damage to the printer
might occur with labels.
●
You might need to configure the printer driver to recognize the
duplexer. (See the printer driver online help for details.)
●
To print on both sides of paper, make the selection from the
software or printer driver. (See the printer driver online help.)
●
If you do not use the printer driver that came with the printer, you
might need to change the Duplex setting from the Paper Handling
Menu in the printer control panel to DUPLEX=ON. Also in the Paper
Handling Menu, set Binding to long edge or short edge. (For more
information, see “Layout options for printing both sides of paper”
on page 52.)
●
Close the rear output bin to use the duplexer (see “Selecting the
output bin” on page 44). Opening the rear output bin disables the
duplexer.

Placement for paper requiring a specific
orientation
Several kinds of paper require a specific orientation when you
duplex—for example, letterhead, preprinted paper, and paper with
watermarks and prepunched holes. The duplexer prints the second
side of paper first. Orient paper in the trays as shown below.
Tray 1
Trays 2, 3, 4
For tray 1, load the front side facing down and the top toward you. For
all other trays, load the front side facing up and the top toward the

●
“Printing transparencies” on page 62
●
“Printing cards, custom-size, and heavy paper” on page 63
Printing small or narrow paper
Follow the guidelines below if you will be printing primarily on small or
narrow paper:
●
Use the 6,000-page toner cartridge (part number C8061A). Toner
might leak if large quantities of small or narrow media are printed
using the 10,000-page cartridge (part number C8061X). (See
“Ordering information” on page 22.)
●
Print from tray 1 to the rear output bin if you experience problems
such as paper jams or curl.
See “Printing cards, custom-size, and heavy paper” on page 63 for
further information on printing on non-standard sizes.
Printing letterhead, prepunched, or preprinted
paper (single-sided)
When printing letterhead, prepunched, or preprinted paper, it is
important to correctly orient the paper. For instructions, see the next
page.
Note
EN
Follow the guidelines in this section for printing on one side only. For
guidelines on duplexing, see “Guidelines for printing both sides of

Printing envelopes
With the optional envelope feeder, the printer will automatically feed
up to 75 envelopes. To order an envelope feeder, see “Ordering
information” on page 22. To print with the envelope feeder, see
“Feeding envelopes automatically (optional envelope feeder)” on
page 57. For envelope specifications, see “Envelopes” on page 197.
Many types of envelopes can be printed from tray 1. Up to 10 can be
stacked in the tray. Printing performance depends on the construction
of the envelope. Always test a few sample envelopes before
purchasing a large quantity.
●
In the software, set margins at least 15 mm (0.6 in) from the edge
of the envelope.
●
Open the rear output bin to get a straight paper path. This
produces better results if envelopes are curling.
If you print large quantities of envelopes continuously or if you
interleave envelopes with wide media, you might need to select SMALL
PAPER SPEED = SLOW at the printer control panel. This setting reduces
the throughput speed of narrow media to allow the heat generated
from printing this media to dissipate. Although using this feature will
slow your printer's throughput speed, it will help protect your printer
from damage while ensuring excellent print quality.
WARNING!
Never use envelopes with coated linings, exposed self-stick adhesives,
or other synthetic materials. These items can emit noxious fumes.
CAUTION
Envelopes with clasps, snaps, windows, coated linings, exposed selfstick adhesives, or other synthetic materials can severely damage the
printer.
To avoid jamming and possible printer damage, never try to print on
both sides of an envelope.
Before you load envelopes, make sure they are flat and not damaged
or stuck together. Do not use envelopes with pressure-sensitive
adhesive.

the side-to-be-printed facing down, and the top edge toward you.
●
Try opening the rear output bin to reduce curl and other problems
(see “Printing to the rear output bin” on page 45).
Do not:
CAUTION
EN
●
Do not load the trays to capacity because labels are heavier than
paper.
●
Do not use labels that are separating from the backing sheet,
wrinkled, or damaged in any way.
●
Do not use labels that have the backing sheet exposed. (Labels
must cover the entire backing sheet with no exposed spaces.)
●
Do not feed a sheet of labels through the printer more than once.
The adhesive backing is designed for only one pass through the
printer.
●
Do not print on both sides of labels.
●
Do not print on sheets from which labels have been removed.
Failure to follow these instructions can damage the printer.

Printing transparencies
Use only transparencies recommended for use in laser printers. For
transparency specifications, see “Transparencies” on page 196
●
Load transparencies face up in tray 1 with the top toward the
printer. Up to 50 transparencies can be loaded in tray 1.
●
A stack of 50 to 100 transparencies can be printed from tray 2, 3,
or 4 (although stacking more than 50 at a time is not
recommended). Because transparencies are heavier than paper,
do not load tray 2, 3, or 4 to capacity. Load them with the side-tobe-printed facing down, and the top edge toward you.
●
To prevent transparencies from becoming too hot or sticking
together, use the top output bin.
●
Remove each transparency from the output bin before printing
another.
●
Do not feed transparencies through the printer more than once.
●
Print only on one side of a transparency.
●
Place transparencies on a flat surface to cool after removing them
from the printer.
●
Select the transparency paper type from the printer driver so that
the printer uses the low fuser mode that is best for printing them.
●
If two or more transparencies feed at the same time, try fanning
the stack.

Open the rear output bin to use it (see “Printing to the rear output bin”
on page 45).
The printer control panel can be set for one custom size at a time. Do
not load more than one size of custom paper into the printer.
Guidelines for printing custom-size paper
●
Do not attempt to print on paper smaller than 76 mm (3 in) wide
or 127 mm (5 in) long.
●
In the software application, set page margins at least 4.23 mm
(0.17 in) away from the edges.
●
Feed short-edge first.
Setting custom paper sizes
When custom paper is loaded, size settings need to be selected from
the software application (the preferred method), the printer driver, and
the printer control panel.
EN
Printing special paper 63
Note
Settings in the printer driver and software application override control
panel settings. (Software application settings generally override printer

Y (side edge)
If the settings are not available from the software, set the custom
paper size from the control panel:
1
From the Printing Menu set CONFIGURE CUSTOM PAPER=YES.
2
From the Printing Menu, select inches or millimeters as the unit of
measurement.
3
From the Printing Menu, set the X dimension (the front edge of
the paper) as shown in the figure above. The X dimension can be
76 to 216 mm (3 to 8.5 in).
4
Set the Y dimension (the side edge of the paper) as shown in the
figure above. The Y dimension can be 127 to 356 mm (5 to 14 in).
For example, if the custom paper is 203 by 254 mm (8 by 10 in),
set X=203 mm and Y=254.
5
If custom paper is loaded into tray 1, set TRAY 1 MODE=CASSETTE
and then set TRAY 1 SIZE=CUSTOM from the Paper Handling
Menu in the printer control panel. See “Customizing tray 1
operation” on page 69.
If custom paper is loaded in tray 2, 3, or 4, be sure the paper size
slider is set to Custom (see “Loading trays 2, 3, and 4” on
page 47).

RIP ONCE
RIP ONCE allows the print job to be processed one time at the
printer. The RIP ONCE capability creates an image of the page then
saves a compressed image of the page into memory. RIP ONCE is
enabled when a minimum of 32 MB of RAM or a hard disk accessory
is installed in the printer. Pages are printed by decompressing page
images without pausing to process the print job again. The print job
will print exactly the same every time because the compressed image
is not dependent on any other printer data.

Saving printer setup information (Quick Sets)
Printer drivers allow you to save the printer settings you use most
often as the default settings. For example, the driver might be set to
print on letter size paper, portrait orientation, with automatic tray
selection (from the first available tray).
Windows PCL 6 and PCL 5e printer drivers will allow you to save
printer settings for multiple kinds of print jobs. For example, you might
want to create a Quick Set for envelopes, or for printing the first page
of a document on letterhead.
See the printer driver online help for more information on the Quick
Sets feature.
Scaling page image (ZoomSmart)
Windows PCL 6 and PCL 5e printer drivers include a feature called
ZoomSmart that lets you scale the page image from any page size to
any page size. You can do this either by a numeric percentage or by
specifying a different paper size scale.
See the printer driver online help for more information on the
ZoomSmart feature.
Printing booklets
Windows PCL 6 and PCL 5e printer drivers let you control the printing
of booklets when duplexing. You have the choice of binding on the left
or right side on Letter, Legal, or A4 paper size.
See the printer driver online help for more information on this feature.
Printing with a watermark
A watermark is a notice, such as “Top Secret,” printed in the
background of each page in a document. Check the driver for
available options, or see the printer driver online help for more
information.
66 Chapter 2 - Printing tasks
EN
Different first page
Follow these instructions for printing a first page that is different from
other pages in the print job.
1
For Windows, select “Use different paper for first page” in your
printer driver. Choose one tray (or Manual Feed) for the first page
and one of the other trays for the remaining pages. Place the
paper for the first page in tray 1 (or whichever tray you selected).
(For manual feed, place paper in tray 1 after the job is sent to the
printer and the printer requests paper.) For loading tray 1, place
the paper with the side-to-be-printed up, the top of the page
facing the rear of the printer.
For Macintosh computers, select “First from” and “Remaining
from” in the print dialog box.
Note
Where and how you make selections depends on your software
application or associated printer driver. (Some options may only be
available through the printer driver.)
2
Load the paper for the remaining pages of the document into
another tray. You may select the first and remaining pages by type
of paper. For more information, see “Manually feeding paper from
tray 1” on page 71.
Printing multiple pages on one sheet of paper (n-up)
You can print more than one page on a single sheet of paper. This
feature is available in some printer drivers, and provides a costeffective way to print draft pages.
To print more than one page on a sheet of paper, look for a Layout or
Pages Per Sheet option in the printer driver. (This is sometimes called
2-up, 4-up, or n-up printing.)

Advanced printing tasks 67
Customizing what tray is used for printing
Understanding tray order
When the printer receives a print job, it selects the paper tray by trying
to match the requested paper type and size with what has been
loaded in the trays. Using an “autoselect” process, it searches all
available input paper trays for the paper that satisfies the request,
starting with the bottom tray and ending with the top tray (tray 1). The
printer begins printing the job as soon as it finds the proper type/size.
If any paper is loaded in tray 1 and tray 1 is set to FIRST mode in the
Paper Handling Menu, the printer will always pull paper from tray 1
first. (See the explanation of FIRST mode in “Customizing tray 1
operation” on page 69.)
If the search fails, the printer displays a message on the control panel
requesting you to load the correct paper type/size. You can load that
paper type/size, or you can override the request by entering a
different type/size at the control panel.
If a tray runs out of paper during a print job, the printer automatically
switches to any paper tray that contains the same paper type/size.
The autoselect process changes somewhat if you customize tray 1
operation (as explained in “Customizing tray 1 operation” on page 69)
or set tray 1 for manual feed (as explained in “Manually feeding paper
from tray 1” on page 71).
68 Chapter 2 - Printing tasks
EN
Customizing tray 1 operation
The printer can be set to print from tray 1 as long as it is loaded, or to
print only from tray 1 if the type of paper loaded is specifically
requested. Set TRAY 1 MODE=FIRST or TRAY 1 MODE=CASSETTE in
the Paper Handling Menu at the printer control panel (see “Paper
Handling Menu” on page 210).
Setting
Explanation
TRAY 1
MODE=FIRST
Means that the printer usually pulls paper from
tray 1 first unless it is empty or closed. If you do not
keep paper in tray 1 all the time, or you use tray 1
only for manually feeding paper, keep the default
setting of TRAY 1 MODE=FIRST in the Paper
Handling Menu.
Means that the printer treats tray 1 like trays 2, 3,
TRAY 1
MODE=CASSETTE and 4. Instead of looking for paper in tray 1 first, the
printer pulls paper from the tray that matches type
and size settings selected from the software.
When TRAY 1 MODE=CASSETTE is set, an option
appears in the Paper Handling Menu to configure
size as well as type settings for tray 1.
Through the printer driver, you can select paper
from any tray (including tray 1) by type, size, or
source. To print by type and size of paper, see
“Printing by type and size of paper (locking trays)”
on page 70.
EN
Advanced printing tasks 69
Printing by type and size of paper (locking trays)
You can configure the printer to select paper by type (such as plain or
letterhead) and size (such as letter or A4), as opposed to source (a
paper tray).
See “Supported sizes and weights of paper” on page 189 and
“Supported types of paper” on on page 192.
Benefits of printing by type and size of paper
If you frequently use several different kinds of paper, once trays are
set up correctly, you do not have to check which paper is loaded in
each tray before you print. This is especially helpful when the printer
is shared, and more than one person loads or removes paper.
Printing by type and size of paper is a way to be sure that print jobs
always print on the desired paper. (Some older model printers have a
feature which “locks out” trays to prevent printing on the wrong paper.
Printing by type and size of paper eliminates the need to lock out
trays.)
To print by type and size of paper
1
Be sure to load the trays correctly and make all three
adjustments. (See the sections on loading paper, starting with
“Loading tray 1” on page 46).
2
From the Paper Handling Menu in the printer control panel, select
the paper type for each tray. If you are unsure what type you are
loading (such as bond or recycled), check the label on the
package of paper.
3
Select the paper size settings from the control panel.
• Tray 1: If the printer has been set to TRAY 1 MODE=CASSETTE
from the Paper Handling Menu, also set the paper size from
the Paper Handling Menu. If custom paper is loaded, set the
size of custom paper from the Printing Menu to match the
paper loaded in tray 1. To print custom-size paper, see
“Guidelines for printing custom-size paper” on page 63.
• Trays 2, 3, and 4: Paper size is automatically detected when
paper is properly loaded into the tray and the paper size
adjustments have been made to match the paper size (see
“Loading trays 2, 3, and 4” on page 47 for information on tray
adjustments). If custom paper is loaded, set the size of custom
paper from the Printing Menu to match the paper loaded in the
tray. Set the paper size slider in the tray to Custom. To print
custom-size paper, see “Guidelines for printing custom-size
paper” on page 63.
70 Chapter 2 - Printing tasks
EN
• Optional envelope feeder: Set the paper size from the Paper
Handling Menu.
4
Note
From the software or printer driver, select the desired type and
size of paper.
The type and size settings can also be configured from HP Web
JetAdmin software for networked printers. See the printer driver online
help.
To print by type and size, it might be necessary to unload or close tray
1, or set TRAY 1 MODE=CASSETTE from the Paper Handling Menu in the
printer control panel. For more information, see “Customizing tray 1
operation” on page 69.
Settings in the printer driver and software application override control
panel settings. (Software application settings generally override printer
driver settings.)
Manually feeding paper from tray 1
The manual feed feature is another way of printing on special paper
from tray 1. Setting manual feed to on either from the printer control
panel or from the printer driver will stop the printer after each job is
sent, allowing you time to load special media in tray 1. Press GO to
continue printing.
If there is already paper in tray 1 when you send the print job and the
printer control panel has TRAY 1= FIRST as the default configuration
for tray 1 operation, the printer will not stop and wait for paper to be
loaded. To use this feature, set TRAY 1=CASSETTE in the Paper
Handling Menu (see the description of “TRAY 1 MODE= FIRST” on
page 210).
If you have selected MANUAL FEED=ON in the printer control panel, this
setting will override the printer driver, and all print jobs sent to the
printer will request manually fed paper in tray 1 unless a specific tray
has been selected from the printer driver. If this feature is to be used
only occasionally, it is best to set MANUAL FEED=OFF in the printer
control panel and to select the manual feed option from within the
printer driver on a job-by-job basis.

Advanced printing tasks 71
Job retention features
To use the job retention features listed below, you must install a hard
disk accessory in the printer and properly configure the drivers.
To support job retention features for complex jobs, HP recommends
that you install additional memory (see “Ordering information” on
page 22).
CAUTION
Make sure to identify your jobs in the printer driver before printing. Using
default names may override previous jobs with the same default name
or cause the job to be deleted.
Quick copying a job
The quick copy feature prints the requested number of copies of a job
and stores a copy on the printer’s hard disk accessory. Additional
copies of the job can be printed later. This feature can be turned off
from the driver.
For more information about specifying the number of quick copy jobs
that can be stored, see the QUICK COPY JOBS control panel item

printer needs additional space, the printer may delete other quick
copy jobs starting with the oldest job. The default number of quick
copy jobs that can be stored is 32. The number of quick copy jobs that
can be stored is set from the control panel (see the description of
“QUICK COPY JOBS=32” on page 221).

Printing with the optional HP Fast InfraRed
Receiver
The optional HP Fast InfraRed Receiver enables wireless printing
from any IRDA-compliant portable device (such as a laptop computer)
to the HP LaserJet Series printers.
The printing connection is maintained by positioning the sending
infrared (FIR) port within operating range. Note that the connection
can be blocked by objects such as a hand, paper, direct sunlight, or
any bright light shining into either FIR port.
Note
For more information, see the user guide that came with the HP Fast
InfraRed Receiver.
If your operating system does not have infrared software installed,
contact your computer manufacturer for drivers and installation
instructions.
Setting up to print with Windows 9x
Before launching the InfraRed Driver, complete the following steps:
1
Click Start, click Settings, and then click Printers.
2
Select the HP LaserJet 4100, 4100N, 4100TN, or 4100DTN as
your default printer.
3
While in the same Printers folder, choose Properties/Details,
and make sure that Virtual Infrared LPT Port is selected.
4
Select the file to print.
Setting up to print with Macintosh computers
The first step for setting up an infrared printer is creating a Desktop
Printer icon using the Desktop Printer Utility. By default, the Desktop
Printer Utility is located in the Apple Extras/Apple LaserWriter
folder on the hard drive.
Printer IR will not be an option if the Infrared Control Panel and
extensions are not active. In addition, the infrared print capability is
possible only with the HP LaserWriter version 8.6 driver or later.
1
Launch the Desktop Utility.
2
Select Printer IR (Infrared) and click OK.
80 Chapter 2 - Printing tasks
EN
Note
3
Change PostScript Printer Description (PPD) File to match the
printer.
4
On the File menu, select Save.
5
Enter a name and location for the desktop printer icon and click
OK.
Once the icon is on the desktop (or saved elsewhere), printer options
need to be manually configured. This step is essentially the same as
selecting Configure after setting up a printer in the Chooser. To set the
options, highlight the Desktop Printer icon and select Change Setup
from the Printing menu.
Printing a job
1
Align your laptop computer (or other portable device equipped
with an IRDA-compliant FIR window) within 1 meter (3 feet)
maximum of the HP Fast InfraRed Receiver. The FIR window
must be at an angle of within +/- 15 degrees relative to the printer
to ensure an effective connection for printing.
2
Print the job. The status indicator on the HP Fast InfraRed
Receiver lights up, and, after a short delay, the printer status
panel displays PROCESSING JOB.
If the status indicator does not light up, realign the HP Fast InfraRed
Receiver with the FIR port on the sending device, resend the print job,
and maintain the alignment of all devices. If you have to move the
equipment (for example, to add paper), make sure that all devices
remain within the range of operation to maintain the connection.
If the connection is interrupted before your print job is complete, the
HP Fast InfraRed Receiver status indicator turns off. You have up to
40 seconds to correct the interruption and continue the job. If the
connection is resumed within this time, the status indicator lights up
again.
Note
EN
The connection is permanently broken if the sending port is moved out
of operating range or if anything passing between the ports blocks
transmission for more than 40 seconds. (This block could be a hand,
paper, or even direct sunlight.) Depending on the size of the job, printing
with the HP Fast InfraRed Receiver may be slower than printing with a
cable connected directly to the parallel port.
Printing with the optional HP Fast InfraRed Receiver 81
Interrupting and resuming printing
The job interrupt and resume feature lets you temporarily stop the job
that is currently printing in order to print another job through an FIR
connection. When the FIR job is finished printing, the interrupted job
resumes printing.
To interrupt the job at the printer, connect to the FIR port on the
printer and send a job to the printer. The printer stops printing the
current job when it reaches the end of the copy it is printing. The
printer then prints the job sent over the FIR connection. When the
printer is done printing that job, it resumes printing the original job
with multiple copies where it left off.

Overview 83
Managing the toner cartridge
HP toner cartridges
When you use a genuine new HP toner cartridge (part number
C8061A or C8061X), you can obtain the following types of supplies
information:
●
amount of toner remaining
●
estimated number of pages remaining
●
number of pages printed
●
other supplies information
Non-HP toner cartridges
Hewlett-Packard Company cannot recommend use of non-HP toner
cartridges, either new or remanufactured. Because they are not
HP products, HP cannot influence their design or control their quality.
Service or repair required as a result of using a non-HP toner
cartridge will not be covered under the printer warranty.
When you use a non-HP toner cartridge, the printer is unable to
report on the number of pages that can still be printed with the
amount of toner left in the cartridge. The toner level estimate will only
be an approximate percentage.
If the non-HP toner cartridge was sold to you as a genuine HP
product, please call HP’s fraud hotline (see “HP fraud hotline” on
page 161).
Toner cartridge authentication
The printer will let you know that a cartridge is not a genuine HP toner
cartridge when you insert it in the printer. If you insert a used HP
cartridge from another HP printer, the printer can take up to 20
printed pages to receive the message authenticating that the
cartridge is a genuine HP part.
If the printer control panel message states that this is not a genuine
HP toner cartridge and you believe you purchased an HP cartridge,
call the HP fraud hotline at 1-887-219-3183 (toll-free in North
America).
84 Chapter 3 - Printer maintenance
EN
Toner cartridge storage
Do not remove the toner cartridge from its package until you are
ready to use it. The shelf life of a cartridge in an unopened package is
approximately 2.5 years.
CAUTION
To prevent damage to the toner cartridge, do not expose it to light for
more than a few minutes.
Toner cartridge life expectancy
The life of the toner cartridge depends on the amount of toner that
print jobs require. When printing text at 5% coverage, an HP toner
cartridge lasts an average of 10,000 or 6,000 pages, depending on
which toner cartridge is installed. (A typical business letter is about
5% coverage.) This assumes that print density is set to 3 and
EconoMode is off. (These are the default settings. For details on other
settings, see the description of ECONOMODE and TONER DENSITY in
“Print Quality Menu” on page 217.)
At any time, you can verify life expectancy by checking the toner level,
as described below.
Checking the toner level
You can check the toner level using the printer control panel, the
embedded web server, printer software, or HP Web JetAdmin.
Using the printer control panel
1
Press MENU until INFORMATION MENU appears.

Managing the toner cartridge 85
Using printer software
Three things are required to use this feature:
Note
●
the “Supplies Information and Ordering” software must be
installed on your computer (use the custom installation option to
install this software)
●
the printer must be directly connected to your computer (parallel)
●
you must have access to the World Wide Web
1
At the bottom right of your screen (in the system tray), doubleclick the Printer icon. This opens the status window.
2
On the left side of the status window, click the Printer icon from
which you wish to obtain status.
3
At the top of the status window, click the Supplies link. You can
also scroll down to Supplies Status.
If you want to order supplies, click Order Supplies. This opens a
browser that produces a URL from which to purchase consumables.
Select the supplies you wish to order and finish the ordering process.
Using HP Web JetAdmin
In HP Web JetAdmin, select the printer device. The device status
page shows toner level information.
Cartridge interaction (shaking)
When you install a toner cartridge for the first time, gently shake it
from side to side to distribute the toner evenly inside the cartridge.
Due to new cartridge design, this is the only time you will need to
shake the cartridge.
86 Chapter 3 - Printer maintenance
EN
Toner low and toner out conditions
When toner is low
When toner is low, the printer control panel displays a TONER LOW
message and the printer continues to print. The message first
appears when about 15% of the toner remains in the cartridge (about
1,500 pages remaining for the 10,000-page cartridge and about 900
pages remaining for the 6,000-page cartridge at 5% page coverage).
You might prefer to have the printer stop instead of continuing when
the TONER LOW message first appears—for example, if you want print
quality to remain consistently high during print jobs or if you do not
want toner to run out during a long print job. To configure the printer to
stop, change the TONER LOW menu item on the Print Quality Menu
from CONTINUE to STOP (see “TONER LOW= CONTINUE” on page 219).
Then when TONER LOW appears, the printer will stop printing. You can
resume printing by pressing GO.
When toner is out
When the toner cartridge runs out of toner, the printer control panel
displays a TONER OUT message and the printer stops printing. You
can continue printing the current job by pressing GO. The message
continues to appear for every job until you take one of the following
actions:
●
replace the toner cartridge
●
press GO (the printer will print the current job)
If you want the printer to continue printing when TONER OUT appears,
change the TONER OUT menu item on the Print Quality Menu from
STOP to CONTINUE (see “TONER OUT= STOP” on page 219). Subsequent
jobs will continue to print indefinitely while TONER OUT is displayed.
EN
Managing the toner cartridge 87
Cleaning the printer
General guidelines
Follow the cleaning procedure on the following page every time you
change the toner cartridge or whenever print quality problems occur.
As much as possible, keep the printer free from dust and debris.
CAUTION
●
Clean the outside of the printer with a slightly water-dampened
cloth.
●
Clean the inside with a dry, lint-free cloth.
Do not use ammonia-based cleaners on or around the printer.
While cleaning the printer, be careful not to touch the transfer roller (the
black, rubber roller located underneath the toner cartridge). Skin oils
on the roller can cause print quality problems.

Cleaning the fuser
Run the printer cleaning page to keep the fuser free of toner and
paper particles that can sometimes accumulate. Accumulation of
toner and particles can cause specks to appear on the front or back
side of your print jobs (see “Specks” on page 130).
To ensure optimum print quality, HP recommends that you use the
cleaning page every time you replace the toner cartridge or on an
automatic schedule that you can set up.
You can run a cleaning page in two ways:
●
manually as needed from the printer control panel
●
automatically according to an interval that you set
The cleaning procedure takes about 2.5 minutes to complete. A
message on the control appears while the cleaning is taking place
(either PROCESSING CLEANING PAGE or PROCESSING AUTO CLEANING
PAGE).
Running the cleaning page manually
In order for the cleaning page to work properly, print the page on
copier grade paper (not bond, heavy, or rough paper).
To run the cleaning page manually:
EN
1
At the printer control panel, press MENU until PRINT QUALITY
MENU appears.
2
Press ITEM until CREATE CLEANING PAGE appears.
3
Press SELECT to create the cleaning page. A page with a black
stripe prints.

Problem solving
Overview
This chapter will help you to troubleshoot and solve printer problems.
Clear paper jams
Occasionally, paper can jam during printing. This section will help
you to locate paper jams, properly clear them from the printer, and
solve repeated paper jams.
Understand
Many different messages can appear on the printer control panel
printer messages display. Some messages tell the printer’s current status, such as
INITIALIZING. Other messages require an action, such as
CLOSE TOP COVER. Many of these messages are self-explanatory.
However, some messages indicate a problem with the printer, or
request further action or description. This section lists these types
of messages, and tells what to do if a message persists.
Correct output
quality problems
The printer should produce print jobs of the highest quality. If print
jobs do not look sharp and clear, defects such as lines, specks, or
smears appear on the page, or paper is wrinkled or curled, use this
section to troubleshoot and solve the output quality problem.
Determine printer Before you can fix a printer problem, you must understand where
problems
the problem lies. Use the flowchart in this chapter to determine the
printer problem, and then follow the corresponding troubleshooting
suggestions.
Check printer
configuration
EN
From the printer, you can print information pages, which give details
about the printer and its configuration.
Overview 95
Clearing paper jams
If the printer control panel displays a paper jam message, look for
paper in the locations indicated in the figure on the next page, then
see the procedure for clearing the paper jam. You might need to look
for paper in other locations than indicated in the paper jam message.
If the location of the paper jam is not obvious, look first in the top
cover area underneath the toner cartridge.
When clearing paper jams, be very careful not to tear the paper. If a
small piece of paper is left in the printer, it could cause additional
jams. If paper jams are a recurring problem, see “Solving repeated
paper jams” on page 110.
Note
The top cover of the printer must be opened and then closed to clear
a paper jam message.

Clearing paper jams 109
Solving repeated paper jams
If paper jams occur frequently, try the following:
●
Check all the paper jam locations (see “Clearing paper jams” on
page 96). A piece of paper might be stuck somewhere in the printer.
Even a small torn piece of paper in the printer path can cause repeated
jams.
●
If using a duplexer, check all areas (including under the duplexer).
●
Check that paper is correctly loaded in the trays, that all three
adjustments have been made, and that the trays are not overfilled. Make
sure paper is under the front and back tabs. (See the sections on loading
paper, starting with “Loading tray 1” on page 46.)
●
Check that all trays and paper handling accessories are completely
inserted into the printer. (If a tray is opened during a print job, this might
cause a paper jam.)
●
Check that all covers and doors are closed. (If a cover or door is opened
during a print job, this might cause a paper jam.)
●
Try printing to a different output bin (see “Selecting the output bin” on
page 44).
●
The sheets might be sticking together. Try bending the stack to separate
each sheet. Do not fan the stack.
●
If you are printing from tray 1, try reducing the size of the stack.
●
If printing from the envelope feeder, make sure it is loaded correctly,
pushing the bottom envelopes in slightly farther than the top envelopes
(see “Loading envelopes in the envelope feeder” on page 59).
●
If you are printing small sizes, feed paper short edge first (see
“Guidelines for printing custom-size paper” on page 63).
●
Turn over the stack of paper in the tray. Also try rotating the paper 180°.
●
Check the characteristics of the media you are using. Use only paper
that meets HP specifications (see “Paper specifications” on page 188).
Try using different paper to see if the problem goes away. Do not use
curled, deformed, damaged, or irregular paper.
●
Check that the environmental conditions for the printer are met (see
“Environmental specifications” on page 201).
●
Avoid using paper that has already been used in a printer or copier.
●
Do not print on both sides of envelopes or transparencies (see “Printing
envelopes” on page 55 or “Printing transparencies” on page 62).
●
Print only on full sheets of labels and do not print on both sides of label
sheets (see “Printing labels” on page 61).
●
Check that the power supplied to the printer is steady and meets printer
specifications (see “Electrical specifications” on page 201).
●
Clean the printer (see “Cleaning the printer” on page 88).
●
Perform preventative printer maintenance if maintenance is due (see
“Performing preventative maintenance” on page 93).

The printer is asking what size of paper has been loaded in tray 1. In
response, you can take either of the following actions:
• press SELECT to accept the current paper size
• press -VALUE+ to change the size and then press SELECT to accept
the new size
The printer will first display the TRAY 1 TYPE=xxxx message (see
the description of that message). If you do not press any buttons in
the timeout period (about 1 minute), it displays this TRAY 1 SIZE=

Note
Changing the size here changes the default for tray 1 paper size in
the Paper Handling Menu (see the description of “TRAY 1 SIZE=
LETTER” on page 210).
TRAY 1 TYPE =
[xxxx]
The printer has received a job under the three following conditions:
• the paper type requested by the job is not available in the printer
• tray 1 has been set for CASSETTE
• paper has been placed in tray 1 (thus triggering tray 1’s paper
sensor)
If you do press any buttons, the message disappears in about 1
minute. You can take either of the following actions:
• press SELECT to accept the paper type
• press -VALUE+ to change the type and then press SELECT to accept
the new type
Note
Changing the type here changes the default for tray 1 paper type in
the Paper Handling Menu (see the description of “TRAY 1 TYPE=
PLAIN” on page 211).
If you do not do anything during the timeout period (about 1 minute),
the printer will print on the paper in tray 1. It will also change the default
for tray 1 paper type in the Paper Handling Menu to the type requested
by the application that sent the job.

Correcting output quality problems
This section of the manual helps you define print quality problems
and what to do to correct them. Often output quality problems can be
handled quite easily by making sure that your printer is properly
maintained, using media that meets HP specifications, or running a
cleaning page.
Use the examples in the image defect table starting on this page to
determine which output quality problem you are experiencing, then
see the corresponding reference pages to troubleshoot. These
examples consist of the most common methods to remedy print
quality problems. If you still have problems after trying the suggested
remedies, contact HP Customer Care Service and Support (see
“Service and support” on page 157).

setting to see if it is set to PS or PCL (see “Configuration Menu” on
page 219). If it is set to PCL, set it to PERSONALITY=AUTO. If it is set
to AUTO, set it to PS for this print job only. When the job has printed,
return the setting to AUTO.
The job prints in Courier

font) instead of the font
you requested.
The requested typeface is not available in the printer or is not
present on the disk. Use a font download utility to download the
desired font.
Fonts downloaded to memory are lost when the printer is turned
off. They are also lost if Resource Saving is not used and a
personality switch is performed to print a PCL job. Disk fonts are
not affected by PCL jobs or by turning the printer off.
Print a PS Font Page to verify that the font is available (see “PCL
or PS font list” on page 156). If a disk font appears to be missing, it
may be because a software utility was used to delete the font,
because the disk was re-initialized, or because the disk drive is not
installed correctly. Print a configuration page to verify that the disk
drive is installed and functioning correctly (see “Configuration page”
on page 152).
Print a file directory to help identify available fonts (see “Information

Troubleshooting HP Fast InfraRed Receiver problems
Item
Explanation
FIR port status
indicator does not
light up.
Make sure that the printer is in READY mode and that the FIR port
you are printing from is IRDA-compliant and within the range of
operation described in the user guide for the HP Fast InfraRed
Receiver.
Make sure that the HP Fast InfraRed Receiver is properly connected
to the printer.
Print a configuration page (see “Configuration page” on page 152).
Make sure that “FIR POD (IRDA Compliant)” is printed under
Installed Personalities and Options.
Connection cannot be
established or seems to
take longer than usual.
Use a device that is IRDA-compliant; look for an IRDA symbol on
the device or see the computer’s user guide for IRDA specifications.
Connection often cannot take place because the computer does
not have the software that is required for FIR. Make sure that the
operating system on your computer includes an FIR driver and your
application uses an HP LaserJet 4100, 4100N, 4100TN, 4100DTN,
or compatible driver.
Note that complex pages take longer to print.
Position the HP Fast InfraRed Receiver within the range of operation
described in the user guide for the HP Fast InfraRed Receiver. Make
sure that no object is blocking the connection. (This object could be
a hand, paper, books, or even bright light.)
Make sure that the two IR ports are clean (free from dirt and grease).
Bright light of any kind (sunlight, incandescent light, fluorescent
light, or light from an infrared remote control, such as those used
for TVs and VCRs) shining directly into one of the IR ports might
cause interference. Make sure that no bright light is shining directly
into either IR port.
Position the portable device closer to the FIR port on the printer.
The printer prints only
part of a page or
document.
The connection has been broken during transmission. If you move
the portable device during transmission, the connection can be
broken. IRDA-compliant devices are designed to recover from
temporary connection interruptions. You have up to 40 seconds to
re-establish the connection (depending on the portable device
being used).

Communicating with an optional HP JetDirect
print server
If the printer contains an optional HP JetDirect print server, and you
cannot communicate with the printer over the network, verify the
operation of the print server.
●
Check the HP JetDirect configuration page (to print, see
“Configuration page” on page 152).
●
If the message, “I/O CARD READY” does not appear on the
HP JetDirect configuration page, see the troubleshooting section
of the HP JetDirect Print Server Administrator’s Guide.
If the printer contains an HP JetDirect 10/100TX print server, check to
see that the print server was able to link to the network:
●
Check the link-speed indicators (10 or 100) on the print server. If
both are off, the print server failed to link to the network.
●
Check the HP JetDirect configuration page. The message “LOSS
OF CARRIER ERROR” indicates that the print server failed to link
to the network.
If the print server failed to link, verify that all cables are correctly
connected. If all cables are correctly connected and the print server
still fails to link, follow the steps below to reconfigure the print server:
1
Use the EIO Menu to manually set the link speed (10 or
100 Mbps) and duplex mode (full- or half-duplex) so that they
match the network (see “EIO Menu” on page 225). For example, if
the port on the network switch is set for 100TX full-duplex
operation, you must set the print server for 100TX full-duplex
operation.
2
Turn the printer off and back on and check the print server
operation. If the print server fails to link, try a different network
cable.

Paper specifications
HP LaserJet printers produce excellent print quality. This printer
accepts a variety of media, such as cut-sheet paper (including
recycled paper), envelopes, labels, transparencies, and custom-size
paper. Paper properties such as weight, grain, and moisture content
are important factors affecting printer performance and output quality.
The printer can use a variety of paper and other print media in
accordance with the guidelines in this manual. Paper that does not
meet these guidelines may cause the following problems:
Note
●
poor print quality
●
increased paper jams
●
premature wear on the printer, requiring repair
For best results, use only high quality media, such as HP brand paper
and print media. Hewlett-Packard Company cannot recommend the
use of other brands. Because they are not HP products, HP cannot
influence or control their quality.
It is possible for paper to meet all of the guidelines in this manual and
still not produce satisfactory results. This might be the result of improper
handling, unacceptable temperature and humidity levels, or other
variables over which Hewlett-Packard has no control.
Before purchasing a large quantity of paper, make sure it meets the
requirements specified in this user guide and in the HP LaserJet Printer
Family Paper Specification Guide. (To order the guide, see “Ordering
information” on page 22, or visit the supplies website at
http://www.hp.com/go/ljsupplies.) Always test paper before purchasing
a large quantity.
CAUTION
Using paper outside HP specifications may cause problems for the
printer, requiring repair. This repair is not covered by the HewlettPackard warranty or service agreements.

Guidelines for using paper
For best results, use conventional 75 to 90 g/m2 (20 to 24 lb) paper.
Make sure the paper is of good quality, and free of cuts, nicks, tears,
spots, loose particles, dust, wrinkles, voids, and curled or bent edges.
If you are unsure what type of paper you are loading (such as bond or
recycled), check the label on the package of paper.
Some paper causes print quality problems, jamming, or damage to
the printer.
Symptom
Problem with paper
Solution

192 Appendix A - Specifications
EN
Note
Do not use letterhead paper that is printed with low-temperature inks,
such as those used in some types of thermography.
Do not use raised letterhead.
The printer uses heat and pressure to fuse toner to the paper. Make
sure that any colored paper or preprinted forms use inks that are
compatible with the printer’s temperature of 230° C (446° F) for
0.05 second.
Avoid using paper that has been damaged due to having already been
used in a printer or copier. (Do not print on both sides of envelopes,
transparencies, or labels.)

Paper weight equivalence table
Use this table to determine approximate equivalent points in weight
specifications other than U.S. bond weight. For example, to determine
the equivalent of 20 lb U.S. bond weight paper in U.S. cover weight,
locate the bond weight (in row 3, second column) and scan across the
row to the cover weight (in the fourth column). The equivalent is 28 lb.
Shaded areas indicate a standard weight for that grade.

Labels
CAUTION
To avoid damaging the printer, use only labels recommended for use
in laser printers.
If you have problems printing labels, use tray 1 and open the rear output
bin.
Do not print on the same sheet of labels more than once—peeling and
adhesive contamination might result.
Label construction
When selecting labels, consider the quality of each component:
●
Adhesives: The adhesive material should be stable at 230° C
(446° F), the printer’s maximum temperature.
●
Arrangement: Only use labels with no exposed backing between
them. Labels can peel off sheets with spaces between the labels,
causing serious jams.
●
Curl: Prior to printing, labels must lie flat with no more than
13 mm (0.5 in) of curl in any direction.
●
Condition: Do not use labels with wrinkles, bubbles, or other
indications of separation.
To print sheets of labels, see “Printing labels” on page 61.
Transparencies
Transparencies used in the printer must be able to withstand 230° C
(446° F), the printer’s maximum temperature. Close the rear output
bin to print transparencies to the top output bin.
If you have problems printing transparencies, use tray 1. Be sure to
remove each transparency from the output tray to keep them from
sticking together.
CAUTION
To avoid damaging the printer, use only transparencies recommended
for use in laser printers.
To print transparencies, see “Printing transparencies” on page 62.
196 Appendix A - Specifications
EN
Envelopes
Envelope construction
Envelope construction is critical. Envelope fold lines can vary
considerably, not only between manufacturers, but also within a box
from the same manufacturer. Successful printing on envelopes
depends upon the quality of the envelopes.
When selecting envelopes, consider the components listed below.
Many envelope manufacturers are now making envelopes optimized
for laser printers.
●
Weight: The weight of the envelope paper should be 75 to
105 g/m2 (20 to 28 lb), or jamming may result.
●
Construction: Prior to printing, envelopes should lie flat with less
than 6 mm (0.25 in) curl, and should not contain air. (Envelopes
that trap air may cause problems.)
●
Condition: Make sure envelopes are not wrinkled, nicked, or
otherwise damaged.
●
Sizes in tray 1: From 76 by 127 mm (3 by 5 in) to 216 by 356 mm
(8.5 by 14 in).
●
Sizes in the optional envelope feeder: From Monarch (#7-3/4)
(98.4 by 190.5 mm, or 3.88 by 7.50 in) to B5 (ISO) (176 by 250
mm, or 6.93 by 9.84 in).
If you do not have an optional envelope feeder, always print
envelopes from tray 1 (see “Printing envelopes” on page 55). To print
envelopes with the optional envelope feeder, see “Feeding envelopes
automatically (optional envelope feeder)” on page 57. If envelopes
curl, try opening the rear output bin.
Envelopes with double-side-seams
Double-side-seam construction has vertical seams at both ends of
the envelope rather than diagonal seams. This style may be more
likely to wrinkle unless properly constructed. Be sure the seam
extends all the way to the corner of the envelope.
Envelopes with adhesive strips or flaps
Envelopes with a peel-off adhesive strip or with more than one flap
that folds over to seal must use adhesives compatible with the heat
and pressure in the printer. The extra flaps and strips might cause
wrinkling, creasing, or jams.
EN

The following table gives typical address margins for a Commercial
#10 or DL envelope.

Return address
15 mm (0.6 in)

Delivery address
51 mm (2 in)
89 mm (3.5 in)
For the best print quality, position margins no closer than 15 mm
(0.6 in) from the edges of the envelope.
Envelope storage
Proper storage of envelopes helps contribute to good print quality.
Envelopes should be stored flat. If air is trapped in an envelope,
creating an air bubble, then the envelope may wrinkle during printing.
Card stock and heavy paper
Many types of card stock can be printed from tray 1, including index
cards and postcards. Some card stock performs better than others
because its construction is better suited for feeding through a laser
printer.
For optimum printer performance, do not use paper heavier than
199 g/m2 (53 lb) in tray 1 or 105 g/m2 (28 lb) in other trays. Paper that
is too heavy might cause misfeeds, stacking problems, paper jams,
poor toner fusing, poor print quality, or excessive mechanical wear.
Note
Printing on heavier paper may be possible if the tray is not filled to
capacity, and short grain paper with a smoothness rating of 100 to 180
Sheffield is used.
198 Appendix A - Specifications
EN
Card stock construction
●
Smoothness: Card stock should have smoothness in the range
of 100 to 180 Sheffield.
●
Construction: Card stock should lie flat with less than 5 mm
(0.2 in) of curl. It should be short grain paper to improve feeding
and reduce wear on the printer.
●
Condition: Make sure card stock is not wrinkled, nicked, or
otherwise damaged.
●
Sizes: Use only card stock within the following size ranges:
• minimum: 76 by 127 mm (3 by 5 in)
• maximum: 216 by 356 mm (8.5 by 14 in)
Before loading card stock in tray 1, make sure it is regular in shape
and not damaged. Also, make sure the cards are not stuck together.
Card stock guidelines
EN
●
If cards curl or jam, try printing from tray 1 and opening the rear
output bin.
●
Set margins at least 6 mm (0.24 in) away from the edges of the
paper.

HIGH 1 fuser mode provides a higher fuser
temperature. HIGH1 should be used with
rough-textured or heavy paper if you are having
trouble with toner adhering to the page.
HIGH 2 fuser mode uses the same higher
temperature as HIGH 1, but it also slows printer
throughput, which creates the best fusing for
very rough paper. HIGH 2 is available only for

Overview
The printer has three dual in-line memory module (DIMM) slots
for upgrading with:
Note
●
more printer memory—DIMMs are available in 4, 8, 16, 32,
64, and 128 MB, for a maximum of 256 MB
●
flash memory DIMMs—available in 2 and 4 MB; unlike
standard printer memory, flash DIMMs can be used to
permanently store downloaded items in the printer, even
when the printer is off
●
DIMM-based accessory fonts, macros, and patterns
●
other DIMM-based printer languages and printer options
Single in-line memory modules (SIMMs) used on previous HP LaserJet
printers are not compatible with the printer.
You might want to add more memory to the printer if you often
print complex graphics or PS documents, print with the optional
duplexer, use many downloaded fonts, or print at ProRes 1200.
Added memory also gives you more flexibility in supporting job
retention features, such as quick copying.
The printer has two enhanced input/output (EIO) slots for
expanding the printer’s capabilities with:
●
a network card
●
a connectivity card for serial, USB, or AppleTalk
●
a mass storage device, such as a hard disk
For ordering information, see “Ordering information” on page 22.
To find out how much memory is installed in the printer, or to find
out what is installed in the EIO slots, print a configuration page

EN
Installing memory 231
Checking memory installation
Follow this procedure to verify that DIMMs are installed correctly:
Note
1
Check that the printer control panel displays READY when the
printer is turned on. If an error message appears, a DIMM might
have been incorrectly installed. Check the printer messages (see
“Understanding printer messages” on page 111).
2
Print a new configuration page (see “Configuration page” on
page 152).
3
Check the memory section on the configuration page and
compare it to the configuration page printed before the DIMM
installation. If the amount of memory has not increased, the
DIMM might not be installed correctly (repeat the installation
procedure) or the DIMM might be defective (try a new DIMM).
If you installed a printer language (personality), check the Installed
Personalities and Options section on the configuration page. This area
should list the new printer language.
Saving resources (permanent resources)
Utilities or jobs that you download to the printer sometimes include
resources (for example, fonts, macros, or patterns). Resources that
are internally marked as permanent remain in the printer's memory
until you turn the printer's power off.
Use the following guidelines if you make use of the PDL (page
description language) ability to mark resources as permanent. For
technical details, see an appropriate PDL reference for PCL or PS.
Note
●
Mark resources as permanent only when it is absolutely
necessary that they remain in memory while the printer's power is
turned on.
●
Send permanent resources to the printer only at the beginning of
a print job and not while the printer is printing.
Overusing permanent resources or downloading them while the printer
is printing might decrease the printer's performance or its ability to print
complex pages.

Printer commands
Overview
Most software applications do not require you to enter printer
commands. See your computer and software documentation to find
the method for entering printer commands, if needed.
PCL 5e
PCL 5e printer commands tell the printer which tasks to perform or
which fonts to use. This appendix provides a quick reference for users
who are already familiar with PCL 5e command structure.
HP-GL/2
The printer has the ability to print vector graphics using the HP-GL/2
graphics language. Printing in the HP-GL/2 language requires that the
printer leave PCL 5e language and enter HP-GL/2 mode, which can
be done by sending the printer PCL 5e code. Some software
applications switch languages through their drivers.
PJL
HP’s Printer Job Language (PJL) provides control above PCL 5e and
other printer languages. The four major functions provided by PJL are:
printer language switching, job separation, printer configuration, and
status readback from the printer. PJL commands may be used to
change printer default settings.
Note
The table at the end of this appendix contains commonly used PCL 5e
commands (see “Common PCL 5e printer commands” on page 239).
For a complete listing and explanation of how to use PCL 5e,
HP-GL/2, and PJL commands, see the HP PCL/PJL Reference Set,
available on CD (HP part number 5961-0975).

Overview 235
Understanding PCL 5e printer command syntax
Before using printer commands, compare these characters:
Lowercase l:
Number one:
l
1
Uppercase O:
Number 0:
O
0
Many printer commands use the lowercase letter l (l) and the
number one (1), or the uppercase letter O (O) and the number zero
(0). These characters may not appear on your screen as shown here.
You must use the exact character and case specified for PCL 5e
printer commands.
The figure below displays the elements of a typical printer command
(in this instance, a command for page orientation).

(begins escape sequence) alpha and numeric characters)

EN
Combining escape sequences
Escape sequences may be combined into one escape sequence
string. There are three important rules to follow when combining
code:
1
The first two characters after the ? character (the parameterized
and group characters—see the figure on the previous page) must
be the same in all of the commands to be combined.
2
When combining escape sequences, change the uppercase
(termination) character in each individual escape sequence to
lower case.
3
The final character of the combined escape sequence must be
uppercase.
The following is an example of an escape sequence string that would
be sent to the printer to select legal paper, landscape orientation, and
8 lines per inch:
?&l3A?&l1O?&l8D
The following escape sequence sends the same printer commands
by combining them into a shorter sequence:
?&l3a1o8D
Entering escape characters
Printer commands always begin with the escape character (?).
The following table shows how the escape character can be entered
from various MS-DOS® software applications.

Understanding PCL 5e printer command syntax 237
Selecting PCL 5e fonts
The printer font list provides PCL 5e printer commands for selecting
fonts (see “PCL or PS font list” on page 156 for information how to
print the list). A sample section is shown below.
There is one variable box for entering symbol sets and one for
entering point size. These variables must be filled in or the printer will
use defaults. For example, if you want a symbol set that contains linedraw characters, select the 10U (PC-8) or 12U (PC-850) symbol set.
Other common symbol set codes are listed in the table on beginning
on the next page.

proportional fonts (CG Times, Arial, Times New Roman, and others).
Fixed-spaced fonts are generally used in applications such as
spreadsheets and databases, where it is important for columns to line
up vertically. Proportional-spaced fonts are generally used in text and
word processing applications.

Environmental product stewardship program
Protecting the environment
Hewlett-Packard Company is committed to providing quality products
in an environmentally-sound manner. The HP LaserJet printer has
been designed with several attributes to minimize impacts on the
environment.
This HP LaserJet printer eliminates:
●
Ozone production
The printer uses charging rollers in the electrophotographic
process and therefore generates no appreciable ozone gas (O3).
This HP LaserJet printer design reduces:
●
Energy consumption
Energy usage drops significantly while in low-power (PowerSave)
mode. Not only does this save natural resources, but it also saves
money without affecting the high performance of this printer. This
product qualifies for ENERGY STAR. ENERGY STAR is a voluntary
program established to encourage the development of energyefficient office products.
ENERGY STAR is a U.S. registered service
mark of the U.S. EPA. As an ENERGY STAR
partner, Hewlett-Packard Company has
determined that this product meets
ENERGY STAR Guidelines for energy
efficiency.
●
Toner consumption
EconoMode uses significantly less toner, which might extend the
life of the toner cartridge.
●
Paper use
Depending on the type of software program in use, you can
request that a number of pages of your document be printed on
one sheet of paper. This N-up printing practice and the printer’s
automatic duplexing feature, which provides two-sided printing,
can reduce paper usage and the resulting demands on natural
resources.
244 Appendix E - Regulatory information
EN
This HP LaserJet printer also contributes to protecting the
environment in the following ways:
●
Plastics marking for recycling
Plastic parts over 25 grams have markings according to
international standards that enhance the ability to identify plastics
for recycling purposes at the end of the printer’s life.
●
HP Planet Partners toner cartridge recycling program
In over 25 countries, this product’s
toner cartridges can be returned to
HP through the HP Planet Partners
toner cartridge recycling program.

and instructions are included in
every new HP LaserJet toner cartridge and consumables
package.
Since 1990, the HP Planet Partners toner cartridge recycling
program has collected more than 39 million used LaserJet toner
cartridges that otherwise might have been discarded in the
world’s landfills. The HP LaserJet toner cartridges go to a
collection center and are bulk-shipped to our recycling partners,
who disassemble the cartridge parts for recycling. Materials are
separated and converted into raw materials for use by other
industries to make a variety of useful products.
For more information about the Planet Partners recycling
program, see http://www.ljsupplies.com/planetpartners.
●
U.S. recycling returns
