Computer connection information
The HP All-in-One comes equipped with a rear USB 2.0 High Speed port for connection
to a computer.
If you use a USB cable to connect the HP All-in-One to a computer on a network, you
can set up printer sharing on your computer. This enables other computers on the network
to print to the HP All-in-One, using your computer as the host.
The host computer (your computer, connected directly to the HP All-in-One by a USB
cable) has full software functionality. Other computers, which are referred to as the
clients, have access only to the print features. HP recommends up to 5 computers for
the best performance. You must perform other functions from the host computer or from
the control panel on the HP All-in-One.
To connect the product with the USB cable
▲ Refer to the Start Here guide that came with your product for information on
connecting to a computer with a USB cable.
NOTE: Do not connect the USB cable to the product until you are prompted to
do so.
To enable printer sharing on a Windows computer
▲ Refer to the user guide that came with your computer or see the Windows onscreen

Connect the HP All-in-One to a computer using a Bluetooth® wireless connection
A Bluetooth connection provides a quick and easy way to print images from a Bluetoothenabled computer without using a cable. With a Bluetooth connection you can access
many of the same printing features as with a USB connection. For example, you can
check the printer status, as well as the estimated amount of ink remaining in your ink
cartridges.
NOTE: The only software functionality available with a Bluetooth connection is
printing. Scanning and software-based copying cannot be done over a Bluetooth
connection. However, stand-alone copy functions are still available.
Before you print, you must connect an HP Bluetooth Adapter to the HP All-in-One.
You must have Windows Vista or Windows XP and either the Microsoft Bluetooth®
Protocol Stack or the Widcomm Bluetooth® Protocol Stack installed in order to connect

Microsoft stack: If you have Windows Vista or Windows XP with Service Pack 2
installed on your computer, then your computer has the Microsoft Bluetooth® Protocol
Stack. The Microsoft stack allows you to install an external Bluetooth® adapter
automatically. If your Bluetooth® adapter supports the Microsoft stack but it does not
install automatically, then you do not have the Microsoft stack on your computer.
Check the documentation that came with the Bluetooth® adapter to see if it supports
the Microsoft stack.
Widcomm stack: If you have an HP computer with Bluetooth® built in then your
computer has the Widcomm stack. If you have an HP computer and plug in an HP
Bluetooth Adapter, it will install automatically using the Widcomm stack.
To install and print using the Microsoft stack
1. Make sure that you have installed the product software on the computer.
NOTE: The purpose of installing the software is to make sure the printer driver
is available for the Bluetooth® connection. Therefore, if you have already installed
the software, you do not need to reinstall it. If you want both a USB and a
Bluetooth® connection to the product, install the USB connection first. For more
information, see the Start Here guide. However, if you do not want a USB

Papers to avoid
Using paper that is too thin or too thick, 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.
Papers to avoid for all print and copy jobs
• Any size paper other than those listed in the printer software.
• Paper with cutouts or perforations (unless specifically designed for use with HP inkjet
products).
• Highly textured stock, such as linen. It might not print evenly, and the ink can bleed
into these papers.
• Extremely smooth, shiny, or coated papers not specifically designed for the product.
They can jam the product or repel the ink.
• Multi-part forms, such as duplicate and triplicate forms. They can wrinkle or get stuck,
and the ink is more likely to smear.
• Envelopes with clasps or windows. They can get stuck in the rollers and cause paper
jams.
• Banner paper.

In addition to printing on paper, the HP All-in-One enables you to print directly on the
surface of specially coated CDs and DVDs for print jobs started from a connected
computer. You can design and create a custom label for your CD or DVD using the
software that came with the HP All-in-One. You can then print the label on your printable
CD or DVD media.
TIP: It is recommended that you write your data to the CD or DVD before printing
the label on it.
NOTE: The HP All-in-One does not support a CD/DVD print job started from the
control panel. You must use the software that came with the HP All-in-One to print on
a CD/DVD. For more information, see the software help.

Remove printed papers from the output tray frequently.
Prevent curled or wrinkled photo paper by storing all unused photo paper flat in a
resealable bag.
Ensure that paper loaded in the input tray lays flat and the edges are not bent or torn.
If you are printing labels, ensure that the label sheets are no more than two years old.
Labels on older sheets might peel off when the paper is pulled through the product,
and cause paper jams.
Do not combine different paper types and paper sizes in the input tray; the entire stack
of paper in the input tray must be the same size and type.
Adjust the paper-width guide in the input tray to fit snugly against all paper. Make sure
the paper-width guide does not bend the paper in the input tray.
Do not force paper too far forward in the input tray.
Use paper types that are recommended for the product.

Print a multiple-page document in reverse order
Because of the way the paper feeds through the HP All-in-One, the first page that prints
is print side up at the bottom of the stack. Usually this means you need to put the printed
pages in the correct order.
A better way is to print the document in reverse order so that the pages are stacked
correctly.
TIP: Set this option as a default setting so you do not have to remember to set it
every time you print a multiple-page document.

Change copy speed or quality
The HP All-in-One provides three options that affect copy speed and quality:
•
•
•
Best produces high quality for all paper and eliminates the banding (striping) effect
that sometimes occurs in solid areas. Best copies slower than the Normal or Fast
quality settings.
Normal delivers high quality and is the recommended setting for most of your
copying. Normal copies faster than Best and is the default setting.
Fast copies faster than the Normal setting. The text is comparable to the quality of
the Normal setting, but the graphics might be lower quality. The Fast setting uses
less ink and extends the life of your ink cartridges.
To change the copy quality from the control panel
1. Press OK when Copy is highlighted on the Home Screen.

Turn off the HP All-in-One by pressing the On button located on the product. Wait
until the On light turns off before unplugging the power cord or turning off a power
strip. If you improperly turn off the HP All-in-One, the print carriage might not return
to the correct position causing problems with the ink cartridges and print quality
issues.
Store ink cartridges at room temperature (15.6-26.6° C or 60-78° F).
If you notice a significant decrease in print quality, check the estimated ink levels
remaining in the ink cartridges. Replace any ink cartridges that are low on ink. If none
of the ink cartridges are low, clean the printhead.
Do not clean the printhead unnecessarily. This wastes ink and shortens the life of the
cartridges.
Handle ink cartridges carefully. Dropping, jarring, or rough handling during installation
can cause temporary printing problems.
If you are transporting the product, do the following to prevent ink leaking from the
print carriage or other damage from occurring to the product:
◦ Make sure you turn off the product by pressing the On button.
The print carriage should be parked on the right side in the service station.
◦ Make sure you leave the ink cartridges and printhead installed.
◦ Lightly pack the inside of the product with crumpled newspaper to prevent the
print carriage from moving during transportation.
◦ The product must be transported sitting flat; it should not be placed its side, back,
front, or top.

Check the estimated ink levels
You can easily check the ink supply level to determine how soon you might need to
replace an ink cartridge. The ink supply level shows an estimate of the amount of ink
remaining in the ink cartridges.
NOTE: If you have installed a refilled or remanufactured cartridge, or a cartridge that
has been used in another printer, the ink level indicator might be inaccurate or
unavailable.
NOTE: Ink level warnings and indicators provide estimates for planning purposes
only. When you receive a low-ink warning message, consider having a replacement
cartridge available to avoid possible printing delays. You do not have to replace the
cartridges until the print quality is unacceptable.
NOTE: Ink from the cartridges is used in the printing process in a number of different
ways, including in the initialization process, which prepares the product and cartridges
for printing, and in printhead servicing, which keeps print nozzles clear and ink flowing
smoothly. In addition, some residual ink is left in the cartridge after it is used. For more
information, see www.hp.com/go/inkusage.

If you do not see any defects on the print quality report, then the printing system is working
correctly. There is no reason to replace supplies or have the product serviced, because
they are functioning properly. If you still have a print quality problem, here are some other
things you can check:
•
•
•
•
Check the paper.
Check the print settings.
Make sure your image has sufficient resolution.
If the problem seems confined to a band near the edge of your printout, use the
software you installed with the product or another software application to rotate the
image 180 degrees. The problem might not appear on the other end of the print.

Information on paper
The HP All-in-One is designed to work well with most paper types. Test a variety of paper
types before buying a large quantity. Find a paper type that works well and is easy to
purchase. HP papers are designed for the best quality results. In addition, follow these
tips:
•
•
•
128
Do not use paper that is too thin, that has a slick texture, or that stretches easily. It
can feed incorrectly through the paper path, causing paper jams.
Store photo media in its original packaging inside a resealable plastic bag on a flat
surface in a cool, dry place. When you are ready to print, remove only the paper you
plan to use immediately. When you have finished printing, return any unused photo
paper to the plastic bag.
Do not leave unused photo paper in the input tray. The paper might start to curl, which
might reduce the quality of your printouts. Curled paper can also cause paper jams.
Troubleshooting
•
•
•
•
Always hold photo paper by the edges. Fingerprints on photo paper can reduce print
quality.
Do not use paper that is heavily textured. It can cause graphics or text to print
improperly.
Do not combine different paper types and paper sizes in the input tray; the entire stack
of paper in the input tray must be the same size and type.
Store printed photos under glass or in a storage book to prevent bleeding over time
from high humidity.

Troubleshooting
If your printout has one of the following print quality problems, try the solutions in this
section for help.
Chapter 14
Solution 1: Make sure you are using genuine HP ink cartridges
Solution:
Check to see if your ink cartridges are genuine HP ink cartridges.
HP recommends that you use genuine HP ink cartridges. Genuine HP ink 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 supplies. Product
service or repairs required as a result of using a non-HP supply will not be covered
under warranty.
If you believe you purchased genuine HP ink cartridges, go to:
www.hp.com/go/anticounterfeit
Cause:
Non-HP print cartridges were being used.
If this did not solve the issue, try the next solution.
Solution 2: Check the paper loaded in the input tray
Solution: Make sure the paper is loaded correctly and that it is not wrinkled or too
thick.
• Load paper with the side you want to print on facing down. For example, if you
are loading glossy photo paper, load the paper with the glossy side down.
• Make sure the paper lays flat in the input tray and is not wrinkled. If the paper is
too close to the printhead during printing, the ink might be smeared. This can
happen if the paper is raised, wrinkled, or very thick, such as a mailing envelope.
For more information, see:
“Load paper” on page 37
Cause:
The paper was loaded incorrectly, or it was wrinkled or too thick.
If this did not solve the issue, try the next solution.
Troubleshooting
Solution 3: Check the paper type
Solution: HP recommends that you use HP papers or any other paper type that is
appropriate for the product.
Always make sure the paper you are printing on is flat. For best results when printing
images, use HP Advanced Photo Paper.
Store photo media in its original packaging inside a resealable plastic bag on a flat
surface in a cool, dry place. When you are ready to print, remove only the paper you
plan to use immediately. When you have finished printing, return any unused photo
paper to the plastic bag. This will prevent the photo paper from curling.

Solution:
Check the estimated ink levels in the ink cartridges.
NOTE: Ink level warnings and indicators provide estimates for planning

Cause: The ink cartridges might have insufficient ink.
If this did not solve the issue, try the next solution.
Solution: Check the print settings.
• Check the print settings to see if the color settings are incorrect.
For example, check to see if the document is set to print in grayscale. Or, check
to see if advanced color settings such as saturation, brightness, or color tone, are
set to modify the appearance of colors.
• Check the print quality setting and make sure it matches the type of paper loaded
in the product.
You might need to choose a lower print quality setting, if colors are running into
each other. Or, choose a higher setting if you are printing a high-quality photo,
and then make sure photo paper such as HP Advanced Photo Paper, is loaded
in the input tray.
NOTE: On some computer screens, colors might appear differently than they do
when printed on paper. In this case, there is nothing wrong with the product, print
settings, or ink cartridges. No further troubleshooting is required.

documentation that came with your digital camera.
Cause: You formatted the card on a Windows XP computer. By default, Windows
XP formats a memory card of 8 MB or less and 64 MB or more with the FAT32 format.
Digital cameras and other products use the FAT (FAT16 or FAT12) format and cannot
recognize a FAT32 formatted card.
The Photo light next to the memory card slots is blinking
Solution: Do not pull out the memory card while the Photo light is flashing. A
flashing light means the product is accessing the memory card. Wait until the light

“Clean the glass” on page 111
Cause: Debris might have been stuck on the glass or on the back of the document
lid. This can cause poor-quality scans.
Solution 3: Select the correct OCR language
Solution:
Select the correct OCR language in the software.
NOTE: If you are using HP Photosmart Essential, the Optical Character
Recognition (OCR) software might not be installed on your computer. To install
the OCR software, you must re-insert the software disk and select OCR under the
Custom installation options.
Cause: The scan document settings were not set to the correct optical character
recognition (OCR) language. The OCR language tells the software how to interpret
the characters it sees in the original image. If the OCR language does not match the
language in the original, the scanned text might be incomprehensible.

Solution 1: Scan, enlarge, and then print a copy
Solution 2: Place the original correctly on the glass
Solution 3: Wipe the glass and the back of the document lid
Troubleshooting
Solution 1: Scan, enlarge, and then print a copy
Solution: Fit to Page can only enlarge the original up to the maximum percentage
allowed by your model. For example, 200% might be the maximum enlargement
percentage allowed by your model. Enlarging a passport photo by 200% might not
enlarge it enough for it to fit a full-size page.
If you want to make a large copy of a small original, scan the original into the computer,
resize the image in the HP scanning software, and then print a copy of the enlarged
image.
Cause: You were trying to increase the size of an original that was too small.

Solution 1: Use Fit to Page to enlarge the photo
Solution: If you want to enlarge a photo to fit a full-size page without cropping the
edges, use Fit to Page.
For more information, see:
“Resize an original to fit onto letter or A4 paper” on page 90

•
Solution 1: Scan, resize, and print the image
Solution 2: Use photo paper to make borderless copies
Solution 1: Scan, resize, and print the image
Solution: When you make a borderless copy of a very small original, the product
enlarges the original up to a maximum percentage. This might leave white space
around the edges. (The maximum percentage varies by model.)
Depending on the size of the borderless copy you are trying to make, the minimum
size of the original varies. For example, you cannot enlarge a passport photo to create
a letter-size borderless copy.
If you want to make a borderless copy of a very small original, scan the original into
the computer, resize the image, and then print a borderless copy of the enlarged
image.
Cause: You were trying to make a borderless copy of a very small original.

Chapter 14
The product stalled while printing a CD/DVD
Solution: Ensure that there is at least 7.5 cm (3 inches) of space behind the
product. Also, make sure that the slot on the back of the product is not blocked.
Cause: The product pulled the CD/DVD holder while printing on the CD/DVD. The
holder can protrude about 7.5 cm (3 inches) from the back of the product. If there is
not sufficient space behind the product, the holder stops and printing stalls.
The image on my printed disc is cropped and there is ink on the CD/DVD holder
Solution: If you are loading a regular-size (120 mm) CD/DVD onto the CD/DVD
holder to be printed, do not flip the blue ring over the disc. The blue ring should only
be used if you are printing on a small-size (80 mm) CD/DVD.
Before trying again, clean the CD/DVD holder to remove ink from the holder. This
avoids ink contamination within the product, as well as protects your discs, hands,
and clothing from stains later.
After the CD/DVD holder is clean and dry, load a new printable disc onto the holder
with the printable side up. Leave the blue ring in its original location on the opposite
side of the holder from your disc, as shown below. Reinsert the holder into the CD/
DVD tray until the lines on the holder line up to the white lines on the tray and try your
print again.
Cause:
You loaded the CD/DVD onto the CD/DVD holder incorrectly.

a silver printing surface.)
Cause: The surface of the disc was not compatible for printing.
Solution 2: Load a new CD/DVD with the printable side up
Solution: If you have already burned your content onto the CD/DVD, you might
need to burn your contents again onto a new disc. Load the new disc onto the CD/

Troubleshooting
Card is damaged
Solution: Reformat your memory card in your camera or format your memory card
in a Windows XP computer by selecting the FAT format. For more information, see
the documentation that came with your digital camera.
CAUTION: Reformatting the memory card will delete any photos stored on the
card. If you have previously transferred the photos from your memory card to a
computer, try printing the photos from the computer. Otherwise, you will need to
retake any photos you might have lost.
Cause: You formatted the card on a Windows XP computer. 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 recognize a FAT32 formatted card.

Cause: The CD/DVD was loaded upside down on the CD/DVD holder.
CD/DVD printing problem
Solution: Make sure that there is sufficient space behind the product and that the
CD/DVD exit slot on the back of the product is not blocked. If the product is placed
close to a wall, move it at least 7.5 cm (3 inches) away from the wall.

Solution: Replace the CD/DVD currently loaded on the CD/DVD holder with a CD/
DVD that is the same size as specified in the print job, or cancel the print job and start
again to specify the correct size in the software.
Cause: The size of the CD/DVD currently loaded on the CD/DVD holder did not
match the size you specified when you started the print job from the computer.

Paper mismatch
Solution: Change the print setting or load the appropriate paper in the input tray.
• Do not use paper that is too thin, that has a slick texture, or that stretches easily.
It can feed incorrectly through the paper path, causing paper jams.
• Store photo media in its original packaging inside a resealable plastic bag on a
flat surface in a cool, dry place. When you are ready to print, remove only the
paper you plan to use immediately. When you have finished printing, return any
unused photo paper to the plastic bag.
• Always hold photo paper by the edges. Fingerprints on photo paper can reduce
print quality.
• Do not use paper that is heavily textured. It can cause graphics or text to print
improperly.
• Do not combine different paper types and paper sizes in the input tray; the entire
stack of paper in the input tray must be the same size and type.
• Store printed photos under glass or in a storage book to prevent bleeding over
time from high humidity.
