If you want the best print quality, HP recommends HP papers. Using paper that
is too thin, paper that has a slick texture, or paper that stretches easily can cause
paper jams. Using paper that has a heavy texture or does not accept ink can
cause printed images to smear, bleed, or not fill in completely. For more
information about HP Premium Inkier papers, go to the HP website:

what is a memory card?
If your digital camera uses a memory card to store photos, you can insert the
memory card in your HP PSC to print or save your photos.
You can print a proof sheet, which might be several pages long and shows
thumbnail views of photos stored on the memory card, and print photos from the
memory card, even if your HP PSC is not connected to a computer.
Your HP PSCcan read CompactFlash (I, II), Memory Sticks, MultiMediaCard
(MMC), Secure Digital, SmartMedia, and xD memory cards.
Note: You can scan a document and send the scanned image to an
inserted memory card. See send the scan to a memory card loaded in your
hp psc on page 53 for details.
Your HP PSC features four slots for memory cards, shown in the illustration on
the next page, with the memory cards that correspond to each slot.

Warning! By default, Windows XP will format a memory card of 8 MB or
less and 64 MB or more with the FAT32 format. Digital cameras and other
devices use the FAT (FAT16 or FAT12) format and cannot operate with a
FAT32 formatted card. Either format your card in your camera or select FAT
format to format your card in a Windows XP PC.

Tip: You can optimize the quality of the photos you print with
your HP PSC by purchasing a photo print cartridge. Remove the
black print cartridge and insert the photo print cartridge in its
place. With the tri-color print cartridge and photo print cartridge
installed, you have a six-ink system, which provides enhanced
quality photos. When you want to print regular text documents,
swap the black print cartridge back in.
For more information, see order supplies on page 77.
Do you want to do more than just print your photos? You can enhance and edit
digital photos Before printing them by using the HP Image Editor available
through the HP Director. Just start the HP Director and click HP Gallery. Select
the photo you want to edit, and click Image Editor in the top pane. Add text or
special effects to the photo, improve a poor quality photo, or get rid of red eye.
Macintosh users can simply double-click an image in the HP Gallery to open it
for editing in an Image Window.

The Digital Print Order Format (DPOF) is an industry-standard file that can be
created by some digital cameras. Camera-selected photos are photos you
marked for printing with your digital camera. When you select photos with your
camera, the camera creates a Digital Print Order Format (DPOF) file that
identifies which photos have been tagged for printing. Your HP PSC can read
the DPOF file from the memory card so you do not have to reselect the photos
to print.
Note: Not all digital cameras allow you to tag your photos for printing. See
your digital camera documentation to see if it supports Digital Print Order
Format (DPOF). Your HP PSC supports DPOF file format 1.1.
When you print camera-selected photos, the HP PSCprint settings do not apply;
the settings in the DPOF file for photo layout and number of copies override
those of your HP PSC.

overview
You can make copies by using the front panel of your HP PSC or by using the
HP Photo & Imaging Director (HP Director) software on your computer. Many
copy features are available through either method. However, you might find that
the software offers easier access to special copy features.
This section explains how to perform common copy tasks from the HP PSC front
panel only. For information on performing copy tasks from the HP Director, see
the onscreen hp photo & imaging help that came with your software.

chapter 4
increase copy speed or quality
The HP PSC provides three options that affect copy speed and quality.
•
Normal delivers high-quality output and is the recommended setting for
most of your copying. Normal copies faster than Best.
•
Best produces the highest quality for all paper and eliminates the banding
(striping) effect that sometimes occurs in solid areas. Best copies more
slowly than the other quality settings.
•
Fast copies faster than the Normal setting. The text is of comparable quality
to the Normal setting, but the graphics might be of lower quality. Using
Fast cuts down on the frequency of replacing your print cartridges, because
it uses less ink.

use the scanfeatures
Scanning is the process of converting text and pictures into an electronic format
for your computer. You can scan just about anything: photos, magazine articles,
text documents, and even 3D objects, as long as you are careful not to scratch
the glass.
Because the scanned image or text is in an electronic format, you can bring it
into your word processor or graphics application and modify it to suit your
needs. You can do the following:
•
Scan text from an article into your word processor and quote it in a report,
saving you a lot of retyping.
•
Scan a logo and use it in your publishing software, allowing you to print
business cards and brochures for yourself.
•
Scan photos of your kids and e-mail them to relatives, create a
photographic inventory of your house or office, or create an electronic
scrapbook.
To use the scan features, your HP PSC and computer must be connected and
turned on. The HP PSC software must also be installed and running on your
computer prior to scanning. To verify that the HP PSC software is running on a
Windows PC, look for the hp psc 2400 series icon in the system tray at the lower
right side of the screen, next to the time. On a Macintosh, the HP PSCsoftware
is always running.
You can start a scan from your computer or from your HP PSC. This section
explains how to scan from the front panel of the HP PSConly.
For information about how to scan from the computer, and how to adjust, resize,
rotate, crop, and sharpen your scans, see the onscreen hp photo & imaging help

faxes unless you have selected No Answer for the Rings to Answer setting. For
more information on Rings to Answer, see set number of rings before answering
on page 59.
If you receive a legal-size fax and your HP PSC is not currently set to use legalsize paper, the device automatically reduces the fax so that it fits on the paper
that is loaded. If you have disabled the automatic-reduction feature, the fax will
be printed on two pages. For more information, see sel aulomalic reduclion for
incoming faxes on page 68.
If you have an answering machine connected to the same line as your HP PSC,
you might need to set the number of rings required before the HP PSC begins
receiving the fax. The default number of rings before the HP PSC receives a fax
is 6 (varies by country/region). For more information on setting the number of
rings to answer, see set number of rings before answering on page 59.
You might also want to set up your HP PSCto answer fax calls manually if you
have a voice mail service through your phone company.

ECM eliminates data lost due to poor phone lines by detecting errors that occur
during transmission and automatically requesting retransmission of the
erroneous portion. Phone charges are unaffected, or might even be reduced, on
good phone lines. On poor phone lines, ECM increases sending time and
phone charges, but sends the data much more reliably. Turn ECM off (the
default setting is on) only if it increases phone charges substantially and you are

- The test patterns are even and show a complete grid. If the grids are
not complete, this might indicate a problem with the nozzles. You might
need to clean the print cartridges. For more information, see clean the
print cartridges on page 87.
- The Low Ink warning message value. The value will appear above the
test pattern for the black, photo (if applicable), or tri-color print
cartridges. This value represents the number of Low Ink warning
messages that have displayed for each of the print cartridges. If the
value displays 1, 2, or 3, the print cartridge might be low on ink. You
might need to replace the print cartridge. For more information on
replacing print cartridges, see replace the print cartridges on page 83.
- The lines of color extend across the page.
- The color blocks have even consistency. You should see cyan, magenta,
yellow, violet, green, and red color blocks. If color blocks are missing,
this might indicate that the tri-color print cartridge is out of ink. You
might need to replace the print cartridge. For more information on
replacing print cartridges, see replace the print cartridges on page 83.

how to tell if the instructionsin this chapter apply to you
The fax setup instructions in this chapter are intended for parallel-type telephone
systems, which are most common in the countries/regions listed in the following
table.
Check the table to see if you are located in one of the listed countries/
regions.
-
If your country/region is listed, use the instructions in this chapter to
complete your fax setup.
If your country/region does not appear in this list, you probably have
a serial-type telephone system and you should not use the connection
instructions in this chapter. In a serial-type telephone system, connect
all other telephone equipment (modems, phones, and answering
chapter 13
machines) directly at your telephone wall jack. If you are unsure which
kind of telephone system you have (parallel or serial), check with your
telephone company.

how to choosethe right fax setupfor your office
To fax successfully, you need to know what types of equipment and services (if
any) share the same telephone line with your HP PSC. This is important because
you might need to connect some of your existing office equipment directly to
your HP PSC, and you might also need to change some fax settings before you
can fax successfully.
To determine the best way to set up the HP PSC in your office, first read through
the questions in this section and record your answers. Next, refer to the table in
the following section and choose the recommended setup case based on your
answers.
Be sure to read and answer the following questions in the order they are
presented.
1
Do you subscribe to a distinctive ringing service through your phone
company that provides multiple phone numbers with different ring
patterns?
DYes, I have distinctive ring.
_No.
If you answered "Yes," proceed directly to case B: faxing with a distinctive
ring service on the same line on page 119. You do not need to continue
answering questions.
If you answered "No," please continue answering questions.
Not sure if you have distinctive ring? Many phone companies offer a
distinctive ringing feature that allows you to have several phone numbers
on one phone line.
hp psc 2400 series
fax setup
When you subscribe to this service, each number will have a different ring
pattern, for example, single, double, and triple rings. You might assign
one phone number with a single ring to your voice calls, and another
phone number with double rings to your fax calls. This allows you--and
your HP PSC--to tell the difference between voice and fax calls when the
phone rings.
Do you receive voice calls at the same phone number you will use for fax
calls on your HP PSC?
DYes, I receive voice calls.
_No.
Please continue answering questions.
Do you have a PC modem on the same telephone line as your HP PSC?
DYes, I have a PC modem.
DNo.
Here is how to determine if you have a PC modem. If you answer "yes" to
any of the following questions, you are using a PC modem:
-
Do you send and receive faxes directly to and from your computer
programs via dial-up connection?
Do you use e-mail on your computer via dial-up connection?
Do you access the Internet from your computer via dial-up connection?
Please continue answering questions.
4
Do you have an answering machine thai answers voice calls at the same
phone number you will use for fax calls on your HP PSC?
D
Yes, I have an answering machine.
D
No.
Pleasecontinue answering questions.
Do you subscribeto a voicemail servicethrough your phone company at
the same phone number you will usefor fax calls on your HPPSC?
D
Yes,I have a voicemail service.
D
No.
Please continue answering questions.
Do you have a digital subscriber line (DSL)through your phone company?
DYes, I have a DSL line.
DNo.
If you answered "Yes," you will need to connect a DSL filter between your
telephone wall jack and your HP PSC.
First select and connect a fax setup case according to your answers to the
previous questions, and then see faxing from a DSL line on page 130 for
instructions on how to connect the DSL filter.
Caution! If you have a DSL line and you do not connect a DSL
filter, you will not be able to send and receive faxes with your
HP PSC.

Now you need to decide how you want to answer fax calls: automatically or
manually.
how to answer fax calls automatically
The HP PSC is factory-set to answer all calls automatically after 5 rings, so you
do not need to change any settings if you want to automatically receive faxes.
Your HP PSC will not be able to distinguish between fax and voice calls in this
case, however, so if you suspect a voice call is incoming, you will need to
answer it before the 5th ring or the HP PSC will answer first.
Note: If you pick up the phone before the 5th ring and hear fax tones from
a sending fax machine, you will need to manually answer the fax call. For
information on how to receive fax calls manually from your attached phone
and from an extension phone, see receive a fax manually on page 61.

how to answer fax calls manually
You must be available to respond in person to incoming fax calls, or your HP PSC
cannot receive faxes. For information on how to receive fax calls manually from
your attached phone and from an extension phone, see receive a fax manually
on page 61.
faxing from a DSLline
If you have a digital subscriber line (DSL) service through your phone company,
use the instructions in this section to connect a DSL filter between the telephone
wall jack and your HP PSC. This filter removes the digital signal that would block
your HP PSC from communicating properly with the telephone line.
Caution! If you have a DSL line and you do not connect the DSL
filter, you will not be able to send and receive faxes with your
HP PSC.

Note: While connecting your setup case, you might have already
connected your HP PSCto the telephone wall jack using the HP-supplied
cord. If so, remove this cord from the wall jack and connect it to the open

HP Instant Share makes it easy to sencl photos that family and friends can view.

end of the connector to the telephone wall jack.
Make sure you have correctly connected the HP PSC to the

equipment and services that share the phone line with your
HP PSC.
Use the 1-LINE port on the back of the HP PSC to connect to the

telephone wall jack.

(continued)
•
Check that the telephone wall jack has a working telephone line by
plugging in a phone and checking for a dial tone.
•
Telephone lines with poor sound quality (noise) can cause faxing
problems. Check the sound quality of the telephone line by
plugging a phone into the wall jack and listening for static or other
noise. If you hear noise, turn off the Error Correction Mode (ECM)
feature on your HP PSC and try faxing again. For information, see
use error correction mode (ECM) on page 68. Also contact your
phone company to report the noise problem on your line.
•
Other equipment using the same telephone line as the HP PSC
might be in use. For example, you cannot use your HP PSCfor
faxing if an extension phone is off-hook, or if you are using your
PC modem to e-mail or access the Internet.
•
If you are using a digital subscribe line (DSL), make sure that you
have a DSLfilter connected or you will not be able to fax
successfully. Obtain a DSL filter from your DSL provider. The DSL
filter removes the digital signal that blocks your HP PSC from
communicating properly with the telephone line. For information
on how to connect the DSLfilter, see faxing from a DS/line on
page 130.
•
Check for error messages on the front panel of your HP PSC. Until
a product error condition is resolved, you will not be able to send
or receive faxes. For information on resolving error conditions, see
the Error Messages section of the hp psc 2400/2500 series
troubleshooting section in the onscreen hp photo & imaging help.
•
If you are using either a PBX or an ISDN converter, make sure the
HP PSC is connected to the port that is designated for fax and
phone use.
Note that some ISDN systems allow you to configure the ports for
specific phone equipment; for example, you might have assigned
one port for telephone and Group 3 fax and another for multiple
purposes. If you continue to have problems when connected to the
fax/phone port, try using the port designated for multiple purposes
(might be labeled "multi-combi" or something similar).

•
The Rings to Answer feature might not be set to answer after the
appropriate number of rings for your office setup. For more
information, see how to choose the right fax setup for your office
on page 116.
•
If you have a voicemail service at the same phone number you use
for fax calls, you must receive faxes manually, not automatically.
For information on setting up for faxing when you have a voicemail
service, see fax setup on page 115. For information on how to
receive faxes manually, see set up your hp psc to answer fax calls
manually on page 60.

problem

foxes, but l can send
foxes
(continued)
oossible cause and solution
If you have a PC modem on the same phone line with your
HP PSC, check to make sure that the modem's software is not set to
receive foxes automatically. Modems with this auto fax receive
feature turned on will take over the phone line to receive all
incoming foxes, which will prevent the HP PSC from receiving fax
calls.
If you have an answering machine on the same phone line with
your HP PSC, you might have one of the following problems:
-
Your outgoing message might be too long or too loud to allow
the HP PSC to detect fax tones, which could cause the calling
fax machine to disconnect.
-
Your answering machine might not have enough quiet time
after your outgoing message to allow the HP PSC to detect fax
tones. This problem is more common with digital answering
machines.
The following actions might help solve these problems:
a.
Disconnect the answering machine and then try receiving a
fax. If foxing is successful without it, the answering machine
might be causing the problem.
b. Reconnect the answering machine and re-record your outgoing
message. Make sure the message is as short as possible (no
more than 10 seconds long), and that you speak softly and
slowly when recording it. Try again to receive a fax.
If you have a special ring pattern for your fax phone number (using
a distinctive ring service through your telephone company), make
sure that the Answer Ring Pattern feature on your HP PSC is set to
match. For example, if the phone company has assigned your fax
number a double ring pattern, make sure Double Rings is selected
as the Answer Ring Pattern setting. For information on changing
thissetting, see change the answer ring pattern (distinctiveringing)
on page 68.
Note that some ring patterns cannot be recognized by the HP PSC,
such as those with alternating short and long ringing patterns. If
you are having problems with a ring pattern of this type, ask your
phone company to assign a non-alternating ring pattern.
If you are not using a distinctive ring service, check to make sure
that the Answer Ring Pattern feature on your HP PSC is set to All
Rings. For information, see change the answer ring pattern
(distinctive ringing) on page 68.

•
(continued)
If your HP PSC shares the same phone line with other types of
phone equipment--such as an answering machine or a PC
modem--the fax signal level might be reduced, causing fax
reception problems.
To find out if other equipment is causing a problem, disconnect
everything except the HP PSCfrom the phone line, and then try to
receive a fax. If fax reception is successful without the equipment,
then one or more pieces of the equipment is causing problems; try
adding them back one at a time and faxing, until you identify
which equipment is causing the problem.
•
If you are using speed dial to dial the fax number, the HP PSC
might be dialing too fast or too soon. Try re-creating the speed dial
entry and inserting some pauses. For information, see create speeddial entries on page 64.
•
If your telephone line has a PBX system, make sure you are dialing
the number for an outside line before dialing the fax number.
•
The receiving fax machine might be having problems. To check
this, try calling the fax number from a telephone and listen for fax
tones. If you cannot hear fax tones, the receiving fax might not be
turned on or connected, or a voicemail service could be interfering
with the recipient's phone line.
•
When you have an answering machine on the same phone line
you use for fax calls, you must connect the answering machine
directly to the HP PSC (or through a directly-connected PC modem,
if applicable) as described in fax setup on page 115. If you do not
connect it as recommended, fax tones might be recorded on your
answering machine.

HP PSC
If you did not connect the HP PSC from the port labeled "l-LINE" to
your telephone wall jack using the phone cord supplied in the box
with your HP PSC, you might hear static on your phone line and
you might not be able to fax successfully.* This special 2-wire cord
is different from the more common 4-wire cords you might already
have in your office. For more information, see I have difficulties
when sending faxes and when receiving faxes on page 145.

India, Indonesia, Ireland, Japan, Korea, LatinAmerica, Malaysia, Mexico,
Philippines, Poland, Portugal,Russia,Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Spain,
Taiwan, Thailand, USA,Venezuela, and Vietnam.
Using a telephone line splitter might affect the sound quality of
your phone line, causing static. Try removing the splitter and
connecting the HP PSC directly to the telephone wall jack.
