paper types
If you want the best print quality, we recommend 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 be filled in completely. For more
information about HP Papers, go to our website at:

your HP Officejet. They can jam the HP Officejet or actually repel ink.
•
Multi-part forms (such as duplicate and triplicate forms). They can wrinkle
or get stuck. The ink is also more likely to smear.
•
Envelopes with clasps or windows.

avoid jams
To help avoid paper jams, follow these guidelines:
Prevent curled or wrinkled paper by storing all unused media flat in a
resealable bag.
•
Remove printed papers from the output tray frequently.
•
Ensure that media loaded in the automatic document feeder and the paper
tray lay flat and the edges are not bent or torn.
•
Do not combine different paper types and paper sizes in either the
automatic document feeder or in the paper tray. Always load the same
paper type and paper size in the automatic document feeder or in the
paper tray.
•
Adjust paper guides in the automatic document feeder and the paper tray
to fit snugly against all media. Make sure the paper guides do not bend
the media.
•
Do not force media too far forward in the paper tray.
•
Use paper types that are recommended for your HP Officejet.
load originals
You can copy, fax, or scan an original by placing it in the document feeder tray.
The following procedure describes how to load originals into the HP Officejet
automatic document feeder.
Note: The document feeder tray holds a maximum of 20 sheets of paper.
Tip: When working with fragile, torn, or odd-sized originals, we
recommend that you use a document sleeve or sheet protector
(available from most office-product stores) for the original. Place a
single sleeve into the ADF with the sealed edge first and the
transparent side down.
1
Load your original in the center of the document feeder tray face down and
top first.
Tip: Always load small originals in a portrait orientation, with the
shorter edge going into the HP Officejet first.

increase copy speed or quality
The HP Officejet 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.
•
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 reduces the frequency of replacing your print cartridges, because it
uses less ink.
•
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.

Scanning is the process of converting pictures and text into an electronic format
for your computer. You can scan photos and text documents.
Because the scanned image or text is in an electronic format, you can bring it
into your word processor or graphics software program and modify it to suit your
needs. You can do the following:
•
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.
•
Scan text from an article into your word processor and quote it in a report,
saving you a lot of retyping.
To use the scan features, your HP Officejet and computer must be connected and
turned on. The HP Officejet software must also be installed and running on your
computer prior to scanning. To verify that the HP Officejet software is running on
a Windows PC, look for the hp officejet 4200 series icon in the system tray at
the lower right side of your screen, next to the time. On a Macintosh, the
HP Officejet software is always running.
You can start a scan from your computer or from your HP Officejet. This section
explains how to scan from the front panel of the HP Officejet only.
For more information about how to scan from the computer and how to adjust,
resize, rotate, crop, and sharpen your scans, see the onscreen
hp image zone help that came with your software.
Note: High resolution scanning (600 dpi or higher) requires a large amount
of hard disk space. If there is not enough hard disk space available, your
system might stall.

Many phone companies offer a distinctive ringing feature that allows you to have
several phone numbers on one phone line. When you subscribe to this service,
each number will have a different ring pattern, for example, single, double, and
triple rings.
If you connect your HP Officejet to a line with distinctive ringing, have your
telephone company assign one ring pattern to voice calls and another to fax
calls. We recommend that you request double or triple rings for a fax number.
When the HP Officejet detects the specified ring pattern, it will answer the calls

Error Correction Mode (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 can accept poorer quality in exchange for reduced charges.

If copy or print quality still seem poor after you clean the print cartridges,
try cleaning the print cartridge contacts before replacing the print cartridge
that is affected. For information on replacing print cartridges, see replace
the print cartridges on page 82.
clean the print cartridge contacts
Clean the print cartridge contacts only if you get repeated front panel messages
prompting you to check a print cartridge after you already have cleaned or
aligned the print cartridges.
Before cleaning remove the cartridge and verify that nothing is covering the print
cartridge contacts then reinstall the cartridge. If you continue to get messages to
check the cartridges, clean the contacts.
Caution! Do not remove both print cartridges at the same time.
Remove and clean each print cartridge one at a time.
Make sure you have the following materials available:
•
Dry foam rubber swabs, lint-free cloth, or any soft material that will not
come apart or leave fibers.
•
Distilled, filtered, or bottled water (tap water might contain contaminants
that can damage the print cartridges).
Caution! Do not use platen cleaners or alcohol to clean the print
cartridge contacts. These can damage the print cartridge or the

extent of limited warranty
Hewlett-Packard (“HP”) warrants to the end-user customer (“Customer”) that each
HP Officejet 4200 Series product (“Product”), including related software, accessories,
media, and supplies, shall be free from defects in material and workmanship for the
duration (specified below), which begins on the date of purchase by the Customer.
For each software Product, HP’s limited warranty applies only to a failure to execute
programming instructions. HP does not warrant that the operation of any Product shall be
uninterrupted or error free.
HP’s limited warranty covers only those defects which arise as a result of normal use of a
Product, and does not cover any other problems, including those which arise as a result of
(a) improper maintenance or modification, (b) software, accessories, media, or supplies
not provided or supported by HP, or (c) operation outside the Product’s specifications, or
unauthorized modifications or misuse.
For any hardware Product, the use of a non-HP print cartridge or a refilled print cartridge
does not affect either the warranty to the Customer or any HP support contract with the
Customer. However, if Product failure or damage is attributable to the use of a non-HP or
refilled print cartridge, HP shall charge its standard labor and materials charges to service
the Product for the failure or damage.
If HP receives, during the applicable warranty period, notice of a defect in any Product,
HP shall either repair or replace the defective Product, that is covered by HP’s warranty, at
HP’s option. Where labor charges are not covered by HP’s limited warranty, repairs shall
be at HP’s standard charges for labor.
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.
HP shall have no obligation to repair, replace, or refund until the Customer returns the
defective Product to HP.
warranty information
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.
HP products, including each Product, may contain remanufactured parts, components, or
materials equivalent to new in performance.
HP’s limited warranty for each Product is valid in any country/region or locality where the
covered HP product is distributed by HP. Contracts for additional warranty service, such as
on-site service, are available from any authorized HP service facility in countries/regions
where the product is distributed by HP or by an authorized representative.

regulatory model identification number
For regulatory identification purposes, your product is assigned a Regulatory Model
Number. The Regulatory Model Number for your product is either SDG0B-0306-01 or
SDG0B-0306-02. This regulatory number should not be confused with the marketing name
(HP Officejet 4200 Series) or product number (Q5600A, Q5610A).
notice to users of the U.S. telephone network: FCC requirements
This equipment complies with FCC rules, Part 68. On this equipment is a label that
contains, among other information, the FCC Registration Number and Ringer Equivalent
Number (REN) for this equipment. If requested, provide this information to your telephone
company.
An FCC compliant telephone cord and modular plug is provided with this equipment. This
equipment is designed to be connected to the telephone network or premises wiring using
a compatible modular jack which is Part 68 compliant. This equipment connects to the
telephone network through the following standard network interface jack: USOC RJ-11C.
The REN is useful to determine the quantity of devices you may connect to your telephone
line and still have all of those devices ring when your number is called. Too many devices
on one line may result in failure to ring in response to an incoming call. In most, but not
all, areas the sum of the RENs of all devices should not exceed five (5). To be certain of
the number of devices you may connect to your line, as determined by the REN, you should
call your local telephone company to determine the maximum REN for your calling area.
If this equipment causes harm to the telephone network, your telephone company may
discontinue your service temporarily. If possible, they will notify you in advance. If advance
notice is not practical, you will be notified as soon as possible. You will also be advised of
your right to file a complaint with the FCC. Your telephone company may make changes
in its facilities, equipment, operations, or procedures that could affect the proper operation
of your equipment. If they do, you will be given advance notice so you will have the
opportunity to maintain uninterrupted service.
If you experience trouble with this equipment, please contact the manufacturer, or look
elsewhere in this manual, for warranty or repair information. Your telephone company may
ask you to disconnect this equipment from the network until the problem has been corrected
or until you are sure that the equipment is not malfunctioning.
This equipment may not be used on coin service provided by the telephone company.
Connection to party lines is subject to state tariffs. Contact your state’s public utility
commission, public service commission, or corporation commission for more information.

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 Officejet. This filter removes the digital signal that would
block your HP Officejet 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 Officejet.

Caution! If you do not use the supplied cord to connect from the
DSL filter to your HP Officejet, you may not be able to fax
successfully. If you live in one of the countries listed in the table on
page 119, you received a special 2-wire cord. This special 2-wire
cord is different from the more common 4-wire phone cords you
might already have in your office. For more information about how
to tell the difference between the cords, see I have difficulties when
sending faxes and when receiving faxes on page 146.

Using the phone cord supplied in the box with your HP Officejet, connect
one end to the open port on the DSL filter, then connect the other end to the
port labeled “1-LINE” on the back of your HP Officejet.

faxing with a PBX phone system or an ISDN line
Caution! Many digital PBX systems include a call-waiting tone that
is factory-set to “on.” This call-waiting tone will interfere with any
fax transmission, and you will not be able to send or receive faxes
with your HP Officejet. Refer to your digital PBX system’s
documentation for instructions on how to turn off the call-waiting
tone.
If you are using either a PBX or an ISDN converter, make sure the HP Officejet is
connected to the port that is designated for fax and phone use.
Some ISDN systems allow you to configure the ports for specific phone
equipment—for example, you might have assigned one for telephone and Group
3 fax and another for multiple purposes.
Note: If you have problems when connected to the fax/phone port of your
ISDN converter, try using the port designated for multiple purposes (might
be labeled “multi-combi” or something similar).
how to tell if the following instructions apply to you
The rest of 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
table below.
•
If all of your telephone equipment (modems, phones, answering machines,
and faxes) connects directly to your telephone wall jack, you probably
have a serial-type telephone system. Check the table below to make sure
that your country/region does not appear in the list. If you are unsure
which kind of telephone system you have (parallel or serial), check with
your telephone company. If you have a serial system, you do not need to
read further. If you have Caller ID on the line where you will install your
HP Officejet, please refer to use caller ID on page 66 and block junk fax
numbers on page 66.

how to choose the right fax setup for your office
Caution! Please refer to how to tell if the following instructions
apply to you on page 119 before following any of these
instructions.
To fax successfully, you need to know what types of equipment and services (if
any) share the same telephone line with your HP Officejet. This is important
because you might need to connect some of your existing office equipment
directly to your HP Officejet, 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 Officejet 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.
120
1
Do you subscribe to a distinctive ring service through your phone company
that provides multiple phone numbers with different ring patterns?
!
Yes, 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 124. 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 ring feature that allows you to have several phone numbers on
one phone line.
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 Officejet—to tell the difference between voice and fax calls when
the phone rings.
2
Do you receive voice calls at the same phone number you will use for fax
calls on your HP Officejet?
!
Yes, I receive voice calls.
!
No.
Please continue answering questions.
3
Do you have a PC modem on the same telephone line as your
HP Officejet?
hp officejet 4200 series
fax setup
Yes, I have a PC modem.
!
No.
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 through a dial-up connection?
– Do you use e-mail on your computer through a dial-up connection?
– Do you access the Internet from your computer through a dial-up
connection?
Please continue answering questions.
4
Do you have an answering machine that answers voice calls at the same
phone number you will use for fax calls on your HP Officejet?
!
Yes, I have an answering machine.
!
No.
Please continue answering questions.
5
Do you subscribe to a voice mail service through your phone company at
the same phone number you will use for fax calls on your HP Officejet?
!
Yes, I have a voice mail service.
!
No.

Make sure you connected the HP Officejet from the port labeled
“1-LINE” to your telephone wall jack using the phone cord supplied
in the box with your HP Officejet.* This special 2-wire cord is
different from the more common 4-wire cords you might already
have in your office. Check the end of the cord and compare it to the
two types of cords shown below:
2-wire cord
End view of the 2-wire phone cord
supplied in the box with your
HP Officejet
4-wire cord
End view of a 4-wire phone cord that
will probably cause faxing problems if
connected directly to your HP Officejet
* This possible cause/solution applies only in the countries/regions that
receive a 2-wire phone cord in the box with the HP Officejet, including:
Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Greece,
India, Indonesia, Ireland, Japan, Korea, Latin America, Malaysia, Mexico,
Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Spain,
Taiwan, Thailand, USA, Venezuela, and Vietnam.
If you used a 4-wire cord, disconnect it, find the supplied 2-wire
cord, and then connect the 2-wire cord to the HP Officejet (at the
port labeled “1-LINE”).
Note: If the 2-wire cord is not long enough and you need to extend
it, you might want to purchase an in-line coupler and use a 4-wire
cord to increase the length. The type of coupler you would need
allows you to connect a 2-wire cord at one end, and a 4-wire cord
at the other. Attach the 2-wire cord from the “1-LINE” port of the
HP Officejet to one side of the coupler; then attach a 4-wire cord
from the opposite side of the coupler to the telephone wall jack.

•
Make sure you have correctly connected the HP Officejet to the
telephone wall jack, and correctly connected any additional
equipment and services that share the phone line with your
HP Officejet.
•
Using a telephone line splitter can cause faxing problems. (A
splitter is two-cord connector that plugs into a wall jack.) Try
removing the splitter and connecting the HP Officejet directly to the
telephone wall jack.
•
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 Officejet and try faxing again. For information,
see use error correction mode on page 65. Also contact your
phone company to report the noise problem on your line.
•
Other equipment using the same telephone line as the HP Officejet
might be in use. For example, you cannot use your HP Officejet for
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 subscriber line (DSL), make sure that you
have a DSL filter 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 Officejet from
communicating properly with the telephone line.
•
•
For information on how to connect the DSL filter, see faxing from a
DSL line on page 131.
Check for error messages on the front panel display of your
HP Officejet. 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 hp officejet 4200 series troubleshooting section
in the onscreen hp image zone help that came with your software.
If you are using either a PBX or an ISDN converter, make sure the
HP Officejet 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 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.
If you have a voice mail service at the same phone number you use
for fax calls, you must receive faxes manually, not automatically. For
information on how to receive faxes manually, see receive a fax
manually from a phone on page 48.
•
If you have a PC modem on the same phone line with your
HP Officejet, check to make sure that the modem’s software is not
set to receive faxes automatically. Modems with this auto fax
receive feature turned on will take over the phone line to receive all
incoming faxes, which will prevent the HP Officejet from receiving
fax calls.
•
If you have an answering machine on the same phone line with
your HP Officejet, you might have one of the following problems:
–
•
Your outgoing message might be too long or too loud to allow
the HP Officejet to detect fax tones, and the calling fax machine
might disconnect.
– Your answering machine might not have enough quiet time after
your outgoing message to allow the HP Officejet 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 faxing 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 Officejet 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 this setting, see change the answer ring pattern
(distinctive ringing) on page 63.
Note that some ring patterns cannot be recognized by the
HP Officejet, 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.

All Rings. For information, see change the answer ring pattern
(distinctive ringing) on page 63.
If your HP Officejet shares the same phone line with other types of
phone equipment—such as an answering machine or a PC
modem—the fax signal level could be reduced, causing fax
reception problems.
To find out if other equipment is causing a problem, disconnect
everything except the HP Officejet from 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.
I cannot send faxes, •
but I can receive faxes
If you are using speed dial to dial the fax number, the HP Officejet
might be dialing too fast or too soon. To solve this problem, try one
of the following:
–
•
Try manually dialing the fax number from the HP Officejet front
panel, or from an attached phone. For information, see send a
fax using monitor dialing on page 43 or send a fax manually
from a telephone on page 43.
– Re-create the speed dial setting and insert some pauses. For
information, see create individual speed-dial entries on
page 56.
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 voice mail service could be interfering with
the recipient’s phone line.
