Print cartridge tips
HP Vivera Inks deliver true-to-life photo quality and exceptional fade resistance
resulting in vivid colors that last for generations! HP Vivera Inks are speciallyformulated and scientifically tested for quality, purity, and fade resistance.
For best print quality, HP recommends that you install all retail print cartridges before
the install-by date stamped on the box.
For optimal printing results, HP recommends using only genuine HP print cartridges.
Genuine HP print cartridges are designed and tested with HP printers to help you
easily produce great results, time after time.
Note HP cannot guarantee the quality or reliability of non-HP ink. Printer
service or repairs required as a result of printer failure or damage attributable
to the use of non-HP ink will not be covered under warranty.
Caution To prevent ink loss or spillage: leave the print cartridges installed
while transporting the printer, and avoid leaving used print cartridge(s) out of
the printer for extended lengths of time.
Inserting and replacing the print cartridges
To prepare the printer and cartridges
1. Make sure the power is on and you have removed the cardboard from inside the
printer.
2. Raise the main cover of the printer.
3. Remove the bright pink tape from the cartridges.
12
HP Photosmart 8000 series
Note Do not touch the ink nozzles or the copper-colored contacts, and do not
re-tape the cartridges.
To insert the cartridges
1. If you are replacing an HP Black, HP Photo, or HP Gray Photo cartridge, push
down and pull outward on the cartridge in the right stall to remove it.
2. Hold the new cartridge with the label on top. Slide the cartridge at a slight upward
angle into the right stall so the copper-colored contacts go in first. Gently push
the cartridge until it snaps into place.
Caution To avoid print carriage jams, make sure the print cartridge
snaps securely into place as you insert it.
3.
4.
Repeat the previous steps to install the HP Tri-color cartridge in the left stall.
Lower the main cover.
When you are not using a print cartridge
Whenever you remove a print cartridge from the printer, store it in the print cartridge
protector. The cartridge protector keeps the ink from drying out when the cartridge is
not being used. Failure to properly store your cartridge can cause the cartridge to
malfunction.
➔ To insert a cartridge into the cartridge protector, slide the cartridge into the
protector at a slight angle and snap it securely into place.

Care and maintenance
The HP Photosmart 8000 series printer requires very little maintenance. Follow the
guidelines in this chapter to extend the life span of the printer and printing supplies,
and to ensure that the photos you print are always of the highest quality.
Cleaning and maintaining the printer
Keep the printer and print cartridges clean and well maintained using the simple
procedures in this section.
Cleaning the outside of the printer
To clean the exterior of the printer
1. Turn off the printer, then disconnect the power cord from the back of the printer.
2. Wipe the outside of the printer with a soft cloth that has been lightly moistened
with water.
Caution Do not use any type of cleaning solution. Household cleaners and
detergents may damage the printer finish. Do not clean the interior of the
printer. Keep all fluids away from the interior. Do not lubricate the metal rod on
which the print cartridge cradle slides. Noise is normal when the cradle moves
back and forth.
Automatically cleaning the print cartridges
If you notice white lines or single-color streaks on the photos you print, the print
cartridges may need to be cleaned. Do not clean the cartridges more often than
necessary, since cleaning uses up ink. Follow the steps in this section to run an
automatic cartridge-cleaning procedure.
To automatically clean the print cartridges
1. Press Menu.
2. Select Tools, then press OK.
3. Select Clean cartridges, then press OK.
4. Following the directions on the printer screen, load paper so the printer can print
a test page after cleaning the cartridges. Use plain paper to conserve photo paper.
5. Press OK to begin cleaning the print cartridges.
6. When the printer finishes cleaning the cartridges and prints a test page, it asks
whether you want to Continue to second level cleaning. Check the test page
and select from the following options:
– If the test page has white streaks or missing colors, the print cartridges need
to be cleaned again. Select Yes, then press OK to continue to a second level
cleaning.
– If the print quality of the test page looks good, select No, then press OK.
You can clean the cartridges up to three times. Each successive cleaning is more
thorough and uses more ink.
HP Photosmart 8000 series User's Guide
33
Chapter 5
If you complete all three levels of cleaning using this procedure and you still notice
white streaks or missing colors on the test page, you may need to clean the print
cartridge contacts. For more information, see Manually cleaning the print cartridge
contacts.
Note If a cartridge has been recently dropped, you may also see white
streaks or missing colors in your prints. This problem is temporary and clears
up within 24 hours.
Manually cleaning the print cartridge contacts
If you use the printer in a dusty environment, debris may accumulate on the coppercolored contacts and cause printing problems.
To clean the print cartridge contacts
1. Gather the following items to clean the contacts:
– Distilled water (tap water may contain contaminants that can damage the
print cartridge)
– Cotton swabs or other soft, lint-free material that will not stick to the print
cartridge
2. Open the main cover of the printer.
3. Remove the print cartridge and place it on a piece of paper with the ink nozzle
plate facing up. Be careful not to touch the copper-colored contacts or the ink
nozzle plate with your fingers.
Caution Do not leave the print cartridge outside the printer for more than
30 minutes. Ink nozzles exposed to the air longer than this may dry out
and cause printing problems.
4.
5.
Lightly moisten a cotton swab with distilled water and squeeze any excess water
from the swab.
Gently wipe the copper-colored contacts with the cotton swab.
Caution Do not touch the ink nozzle plate. Touching the ink nozzle plate
will result in clogs, ink failure, and bad electrical connections.
6.
7.
Repeat steps 4 and 5 until no ink residue or dust appears on a clean swab.
Insert the print cartridge in the printer, then close the main cover.
Printing a test page
You can print a test page to check the condition of the print cartridge.

4
Diagnostic information. Use the text information on this page when working with
Customer Care to solve printing problems.
Aligning the print cartridges
The first time you install a print cartridge in the printer, the printer aligns it
automatically. However, if colors in the photos you print are misaligned, or if the
alignment page does not print correctly when you install a new print cartridge, use the
following procedure to align the print cartridges.
To align the print cartridges
1. Press Menu.
2. Select Tools, then press OK.
3. Select Align cartridge.
4. Following the directions on the printer screen, load paper so the printer can print
an alignment page. Use plain paper to conserve photo paper.
5. Press OK to begin aligning the print cartridge.
When the printer finishes aligning the cartridge, it prints an alignment page to
confirm that the alignment was successful.
– The check marks verify that the print cartridge is installed correctly and
functioning properly.
– If an “x” appears to the left of any of the bars, align the print cartridge again.
If the “x” still appears, replace the print cartridge.
Printing a sample page
You can print a sample page to test the printer photo printing quality and to make sure
the paper is loaded correctly.

5.
36
Turn off the printer.
Remove all paper from the paper trays.
If the Output tray extender is extended, push it in.
Lift and fold up the Output tray.
Lift and fold up the Main tray until it snaps into place.
HP Photosmart 8000 series
The printer is built to withstand long or short periods of inactivity.
●
●
Store the printer indoors out of direct sunlight in a place without temperature
extremes.
If the printer and print cartridge have not been used for one month or more, clean
the print cartridges before printing. For more information, see Cleaning and
maintaining the printer.
Storing the print cartridges
When you store the printer, always leave the active print cartridges inside the printer.
The printer stores the print cartridges in a protective cap during the power-down cycle.
Caution Make sure the printer completes its power-down cycle before you
unplug the power cord. This allows the printer to store the print cartridges
properly.
Follow these tips to help maintain HP print cartridges and ensure consistent print
quality:
●
●
●
When you remove a print cartridge from the printer, store it in a print cartridge
protector to prevent the ink from drying out.
In some countries/regions the cartridge protector is not included with the printer,
but comes with the HP Gray Photo cartridge that can be purchased separately. In
other countries/regions, the protector is included with the printer.
Keep all unused print cartridges in their original sealed packages until they are
needed. Store print cartridges at room temperature (15–35 degrees C or 59–95
degrees F).
Do not remove the plastic tape covering the ink nozzles until you are ready to
install the print cartridge in the printer. If the plastic tape has been removed from
the print cartridge, do not attempt to reattach it. Reattaching the tape damages
the print cartridge.
Maintaining the quality of photo paper
For best results with photo paper, follow the guidelines in this section.
Storing photo paper
●
●
●
Store the photo paper in its original packaging or in a resealable plastic bag.
Store the packaged photo paper on a flat, cool, and dry surface.
Return unused photo paper to its original packaging or in a resealable plastic
bag. Paper left in the printer or exposed to the environment may curl or yellow.
Handling photo paper
●
●
Always hold photo paper by the edges to avoid fingerprints.
If the photo paper has curled edges, place it in its plastic storage bag and gently
bend it in the opposite direction of the curl until the paper lies flat.

A cartridge is out of ink. Replace it.
Some of the ink nozzles on a cartridge are clogged. Clean the cartridges.
See Cleaning and maintaining the printer.
No page came out of the printer. —OR— The paper jammed while printing.
Solution
● The printer may need attention. Read the printer screen for instructions.
● The power may be off or there may be a loose connection. Make sure the
power is on, and that the power cord is securely connected.
● You may not have any paper in the Main tray or Photo cassette. Check that
the paper is loaded correctly. For paper-loading instructions, see Loading
your paper.
● The paper may have jammed while printing.
– Turn off the printer, then unplug it from the power source. Clear the
printer of any paper that may be obstructing the paper path. For more
information, see To clear a paper jam.
– If you were printing labels, make sure a label did not become unglued
from the label sheet while going through the printer.
– If you experience paper jams when using the Photo cassette, make sure
that the photo paper-width guide and the photo paper-length guide fit
close to the edges of the photo paper without bending the paper. Make
sure the Photo cassette is fully engaged by gently pushing the Photo
cassette toward the printer until it stops. If you still have problems, try
loading one sheet of photo paper at a time.
A blank page came out of the printer.
Solution
● You may have begun printing and then cancelled the process. If you
cancelled the process before printing started, the printer may have already
loaded paper in preparation for printing. The next time you print, the printer
will eject the blank page before starting the new printing project.
● Check the ink-level icons on the printer screen. Replace any print cartridges
that are out of ink. For more information, see Inserting and replacing the print
cartridges.
● If you are trying to print a fax, first save the fax in a graphic format such as
TIFF. Place it in a word processing document and print it from there.
The photo did not print using the printer default print settings.
Solution You may have changed the print settings for the selected photo. Print
settings you apply to an individual photo override the printer default print settings.
Discard all print settings that have been applied to an individual photo by
deselecting the photo. For more information, see Selecting photos to print.

The printer ejects the paper when preparing to print.
Solution Direct sunlight could be interfering with the operation of the automatic
paper sensor. Move the printer out of direct sunlight.
Print quality is poor.
Solution
● You may be printing in Ink-backup Printing Mode. The printer enters Inkbackup Printing Mode when one of the print cartridges is missing. Replace
the missing print cartridge with a new one. For more information, see
Inserting and replacing the print cartridges.
● If you magnified the photo using the Zoom button on the printer control
panel, you may have magnified the photo too much. To reduce the
magnification, press Zoom to enter Zoom mode, and then press Select
Photos one or more times to reduce the magnification.
● One of the print cartridges may be running out of ink. If a print cartridge is
running low on ink, replace it. For more information, see Inserting and
replacing the print cartridges.
● Use photo paper designed for the printer. For best results, use HP paper.
● You may be printing on the wrong side of the paper. Make sure the paper is
loaded with the side to be printed facing down.
● You may have selected a low-resolution setting on the digital camera.
Reduce the size of the image and try printing again. For better results in the
future, set the digital camera to a higher photo resolution.
● There may be a problem with a print cartridge. Try the following:
– Remove and then reinsert the print cartridges.
– Run an automatic print cartridge cleaning procedure from the printer
control panel. For more information, see Cleaning and maintaining the
printer.
– Align the print cartridges from the printer control panel. For more
information, see Aligning the print cartridges.
– If this does not solve the problem, try cleaning the copper-colored
contacts on the print cartridges. For more information, see Manually
cleaning the print cartridge contacts.
– If these solutions do not work, replace the print cartridge(s).
Printed photos are not fitting to the paper as desired.
Solution
● You may have loaded the photo paper incorrectly. Load the photo paper with
the side to be printed facing down.
● The photo paper may not have fed into the printer correctly. Try the following:
– If you have a paper jam, see To clear a paper jam.
– Load one sheet of photo paper at a time.
● You may have selected the wrong layout. For information, see Selecting a
photo layout.

The photos I marked for printing in the digital camera do not print.
Solution Some digital cameras, such as the HP 318 and HP 612, let you mark
photos for printing in both the camera's internal memory and on the memory card.
If you mark photos in the internal memory, and then move photos from the
camera's internal memory to the memory card, the marks do not transfer. Mark
photos for printing after you transfer them from the digital camera's internal
memory to the memory card.

A. Extent of limited warranty
1. Hewlett-Packard (HP) warrants to the end-user customer that the HP products specified above will be free from
defects in materials and workmanship for the duration specified above, which duration begins on the date of purchase
by the customer.
2. For software products, HP's limited warranty applies only to a failure to execute programming instructions. HP does
not warrant that the operation of any product will be uninterrupted or error free.
3. HP's limited warranty covers only those defects that arise as a result of normal use of the product, and does not cover
any other problems, including those that arise as a result of:
a. Improper maintenance or modification;
b. Software, media, parts, or supplies not provided or supported by HP;
c. Operation outside the product's specifications;
d. Unauthorized modification or misuse.
4. For HP printer products, the use of a non-HP ink cartridge or a refilled ink cartridge does not affect either the warranty
to the customer or any HP support contract with the customer. However, if printer failure or damage is attributable to
the use of a non-HP or refilled ink cartridge, HP will charge its standard time and materials charges to service the
printer for the particular failure or damage.
5. If HP receives, during the applicable warranty period, notice of a defect in any product which is covered by HP's
warranty, HP shall either repair or replace the product, at HP's option.
6. If HP is unable to repair or replace, as applicable, a defective product which is covered by HP's warranty, HP shall,
within a reasonable time after being notified of the defect, refund the purchase price for the product.
7. HP shall have no obligation to repair, replace, or refund until the customer returns the defective product to HP.
8. Any replacement product may be either new or like-new, provided that it has functionality at least equal to that of the
product being replaced.
9. HP products may contain remanufactured parts, components, or materials equivalent to new in performance.
10. HP's Limited Warranty Statement is valid in any country where the covered HP product is distributed by HP. Contracts
for additional warranty services, such as on-site service, may be available from any authorized HP service facility in
countries where the product is distributed by HP or by an authorized importer.
B. Limitations of warranty
TO THE EXTENT ALLOWED BY LOCAL LAW, NEITHER HP NOR ITS THIRD PARTY SUPPLIERS MAKES ANY
OTHER WARRANTY OR CONDITION OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR
CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY, SATISFACTORY QUALITY, AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
PURPOSE.
C. Limitations of liability
1. To the extent allowed by local law, the remedies provided in this Warranty Statement are the customer's sole and
exclusive remedies.
2. TO THE EXTENT ALLOWED BY LOCAL LAW, EXCEPT FOR THE OBLIGATIONS SPECIFICALLY SET FORTH IN
THIS WARRANTY STATEMENT, IN NO EVENT SHALL HP OR ITS THIRD PARTY SUPPLIERS BE LIABLE FOR
DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, WHETHER BASED ON
CONTRACT, TORT, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY AND WHETHER ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF
SUCH DAMAGES.
D. Local law
1. This Warranty Statement gives the customer specific legal rights. The customer may also have other rights which vary
from state to state in the United States, from province to province in Canada, and from country to country elsewhere
