Finally, the manual method to configure specific TCP/IP settings can be done from the control panel, the embedded Web server, HP ToolboxFX, or HP Web Jetadmin. For additional help or network configuration, contact your network provider.

In order to use the Start Scan button, the product must be connected to a computer via USB or a network.

Scan directly from the product by using the control-panel scan buttons. Press Start Scan or Scan To to scan to a folder (Windows only) or to scan to e-mail.

Scan by using other software

The product is TWAIN-compliant and Windows Imaging Application (WIA)-compliant. The product works with Windows-based programs that support TWAIN-compliant or WIA-compliant scanning devices and with Macintosh-based programs that support TWAIN-compliant scanning devices.

While you are in a TWAIN-compliant or WIA-compliant program, you can gain access to the scanning feature and scan an image directly into the open program. For more information, see the Help file or the documentation that came with your TWAIN-compliant or WIA-compliant software program.

Scan from a TWAIN-compliant program

Generally, a software program is TWAIN-compliant if it has a command such as Acquire, File

Acquire, Scan, Import New Object, Insert from, or Scanner. If you are unsure whether the program is compliant or you do not know what the command is called, see the software program Help or documentation.

When scanning from a TWAIN-compliant program, the HP LaserJet Scan software program might start automatically. If the HP LaserJet Scan program starts, you can make changes while previewing the image. If the program does not start automatically, the image goes to the TWAIN-compliant program immediately.

Start the scan from within the TWAIN-compliant program. See the software program Help or documentation for information about the commands and steps to use.

Scan from a WIA-compliant program (Windows XP and Vista only)

WIA is another way to scan an image directly into a software program, such as Microsoft Word. WIA uses Microsoft software to scan, instead of HP LaserJet Scan software.

80 Chapter 9 Scan ENWW

Generally, a software program is WIA-compliant if it has a command such as Picture/From Scanner

or Camera in the Insert or File menu. If you are unsure whether the program is WIA-compliant, see the software program Help or documentation.

Start the scan from within the WIA-compliant program. See the software program Help or documentation for information about the commands and steps to use.

Scan file format

The file format of a scanned document or photo depends on the scan type as well as the object being scanned.

Scanning a document or a photo to a computer results in the file being saved as a .TIF file.

Scanning a document to email results in the file being saved as a .PDF file.

Scanning a photo to e-mail results in the file being saved as a .JPEG file.

NOTE:

Different file types can be selected when using the scan software program.

Scanner resolution and color

If you are printing a scanned image, and the quality is not what you expected, you might have selected a resolution or color setting in the scanner software that does not match your needs. Resolution and color affect the following features of scanned images:

Image clarity

Texture of gradations (smooth or rough)

Scan time

File size

Scanning resolution is measured in pixels per inch (ppi).

NOTE:

Scanning ppi levels are not interchangeable with printing dpi (dots per inch) levels.

Color, grayscale, and black and white define the number of colors possible. You can adjust the scanner hardware resolution to up to 1200 ppi. The software can perform an enhanced resolution up to

19,200 ppi. You can set color and grayscale at 1 bit (black and white), or at 8 bit (256 levels of gray or color) to 24 bit (true color).

The resolution and color guidelines table lists simple tips that you can follow to meet your scanning needs.

NOTE:

Setting the resolution and color to a high value can create large files that take up disk space and slow the scanning process. Before setting the resolution and color, determine how you are going to use the scanned image.

NOTE:

The best resolution for color and grayscale images is achieved by scanning from the flatbed scanner rather than from the automatic document feeder (ADF).

Receive fax settings

Set or change number of rings-to-answer

When the answer mode is set to Automatic, the product rings-to-answer setting determines the number of times the telephone rings before the product answers an incoming call.

If the product is connected to a line that receives both fax and voice calls (a shared line) and that also uses an answering machine, you might need to adjust the rings-to-answer setting. The number of ringsto-answer for the product must be greater than the rings-to-answer on the answering machine. This allows the answering machine to answer the incoming call and record a message if it is a voice call.

When the answering machine answers the call, the product listens to the call and automatically answers it if it detects fax tones.

The default setting for rings-to-answer is five for the U.S. and Canada, and two for other countries/ regions.

Use the rings-to-answer setting

Use the following table to determine the number of rings-to-answer to use.

Type of telephone line Recommended rings-to-answer setting

Dedicated fax line (receiving only fax calls) Set to a number of rings within the range shown on the controlpanel display. (The minimum and maximum number of rings allowed varies by country/region.)

One line with two separate numbers and a ring-pattern service One or two rings. (If you have an answering machine or computer voicemail for the other telephone number, make sure that the product is set to a greater number of rings than the answering system. Also, use the distinctive-ring feature to differentiate between voice and fax calls. See

Set up distinctive ring on page 108 .)

Five rings or more.

Shared line (receiving both fax and voice calls) with only an attached telephone

Shared line (receiving both fax and voice calls) with an attached answering machine or computer voicemail

Two rings more than the answering machine or computer voicemail.

Set the answer mode

Depending on the situation, set the product answer mode to Automatic or Manual. The factory-set default is Automatic.

Automatic: In this answer mode, the product answers incoming calls after a specified number of rings or upon recognition of special fax tones. To specify the number of rings, see

Set the number of rings-to-answer on page 106

.

TAM: In this answer mode, the product has a telephone answering machine (TAM) attached to the line-out port. The product does not answer incoming calls, but listens for fax call tones after the

TAM has answered the call.

Fax/Tel: In this answer mode, the product answers an incoming call and determines if the call is a voice call or fax call. If the call is a fax call, the product receives the fax from the call. If the call is a voice call, the product generates an audible ring to indicate an incoming voice call that you must answer on an extension phone.

Manual: In this answer mode, the product never answers calls. You must start the fax-receiving process yourself, either by pressing Start Fax on the control panel or by picking up a telephone that is connected to that line and dialing 1-2-3.

To set or change the answer mode, complete the following steps:

1.

On the control panel, press Setup ( ).

2.

Use the arrow buttons to select Fax setup, and then press OK .

3.

Use the arrow buttons to select Fax Recv. setup, and then press OK .

The control-panel display shows the answer mode setting that you specified.

Set fax forwarding

You can set your product to forward incoming faxes to another fax number. When the fax arrives at your product, it is stored in the memory. The product then dials the fax number that you have specified and sends the fax. If the product cannot forward a fax because of an error (for example, the number is busy) and repeated redial attempts are unsuccessful, your product prints the fax.

If the product runs out of memory while receiving a fax, it terminates the incoming fax and only forwards the pages and partial pages that have been stored in the memory.

When it is using the fax-forwarding feature, the product (rather than the computer) must be receiving the faxes, and the answer mode must be set to Automatic.

Set up distinctive ring

Ring-pattern or distinctive-ring service is available through some local telephone companies. The service allows you to have more than one telephone number on a single line. Each telephone number has a unique ring pattern, so that you can answer voice calls and the product can answer fax calls.

If you subscribe to a ring-pattern service with a telephone company, you must set the product to answer the correct ring pattern. Not all countries/regions support unique ring patterns. Contact the telephone company to determine if this service is available in your country/region.

NOTE:

If you do not have ring-pattern service and you change the ring-pattern settings to something other than the default, All Rings, the product might not be able to receive faxes.

The settings are as follows:

All Rings: The product answers any calls that come through the telephone line.

Single: The product answers any calls that produce a single-ring pattern.

Double: The product answers any calls that produce a double-ring pattern.

Triple: The product answers any calls that produce a triple-ring pattern.

Double&Triple: The product answers any calls that produce a double-ring or triple-ring pattern.

To change ring patterns for call answering, complete the following steps:

1.

On the control panel, press Setup ( ).

2.

Use the arrow buttons to select Fax setup, and then press OK.

3.

Use the arrow buttons to select Fax Recv. setup, and then press OK .

Use autoreduction for incoming faxes

If the fit-to-page option is turned on, the product automatically reduces long faxes up to 75% to fit the information on the default paper size (for example, the fax is reduced from legal to letter size).

If the fit-to-page option is turned off, long faxes print at full size on multiple pages. The factory-set default for incoming fax autoreduction is On.

If you have the stamp-received faxes option turned on, you might also want to turn on autoreduction.

This reduces the size of the incoming faxes slightly, and prevents the page-stamp from forcing a fax onto two pages.

NOTE:

Use fax on a DSL, PBX, ISDN, or VoIP system

HP products are designed specifically for use with traditional analog phone services. They are not designed to work on DSL, PBX, ISDN lines, or VoIP services, but they might work with the proper setup and equipment.

NOTE:

HP recommends discussing DSL, PBX, ISDN, and VoIP setup options with the service provider.

The HP LaserJet product is an analog device that is not compatible with all digital phone environments

(unless a digital-to-analog converter is used). HP does not guarantee that the product will be compatible with digital environments or digital-to-analog converters.

DSL

A digital subscriber line (DSL) uses digital technology over standard copper telephone wires. This product is not directly compatible with digital signals. However, if the configuration is specified during

DSL setup, the signal can be separated so that some of the bandwidth is used to transmit an analog signal (for voice and fax) while the remaining bandwidth is used to transmit digital data.

NOTE:

Not all faxes are compatible with DSL services. HP does not guarantee that the product will be compatible with all DSL service lines or providers.

The DSL modem requires a high-pass filter. The service provider typically provides a low-pass filter, for normal telephone wiring.

NOTE:

Contact the DSL provider for more information or for assistance.

ENWW Use fax 113

PBX

The product is an analog device that is not compatible in all digital phone environments. Digital-to-analog filters or converters may be needed for faxing functionality. If faxing issues occur in a PBX environment, it might be necessary to contact the PBX provider for assistance. HP does not guarantee that the product will be compatible with digital environments or digital-to-analog converters.

Contact the PBX provider for more information and for assistance.

ISDN

Contact the ISDN provider for more information and for assistance.

VoIP

Voice over internet protocol (VoIP) services are often not compatible with fax machines unless the provider explicitly states that it supports fax over IP services.

If the product experiences problems getting a fax to work on a VoIP network, verify that all cables and settings are correct. Decreasing the fax-speed setting might allow the product to send a fax over a VoIP network.

If faxing problems continue, contact the VoIP provider.

Send a fax by dialing from a downstream phone

Occasionally, you might want to dial a fax number from a telephone that is connected to the same line as the product. For example, if you are sending a fax to a person whose device is in the manual receive mode, you can precede the fax with a voice call to let that person know that the fax is coming.

NOTE:

The telephone must be connected to the product "telephone" port ( ).

1.

Load the document into the automatic document feeder (ADF) input tray.

NOTE:

You cannot use the flatbed scanner when sending a fax by dialing from an extension telephone.

2.

Pick up the handset of a telephone that is connected to the same line as the product. Dial the fax number by using the telephone keypad.

3.

When the recipient answers, instruct the person to start the fax machine.

4.

When you hear the fax tones, press Start Fax , wait until Connecting appears on the control-panel display, and then hang up the telephone.

Send a delayed fax

Use the product control panel to schedule a fax to be sent automatically at a future time to one or more people. When this procedure is completed, the product scans the document into memory and then returns to the Ready state.

NOTE:

If the product cannot transmit the fax at the scheduled time, that information is indicated on the fax error report (if that option is turned on) or recorded in the fax activity log. The transmittal might not be initiated because the fax-sending call is not answered, or because a busy signal stops the redial attempts.

If a fax has been scheduled to be sent at a future time but it requires updating, send the additional information as another job. All faxes that are scheduled to go to the same fax number at the same time are delivered as individual faxes.

1.

Load the document into the automatic document feeder (ADF) input tray or onto the flatbed scanner.

2.

On the control panel, press Setup ( ).

3.

Use the arrow buttons until Fax functions appears, and then press OK .

4.

Use the arrow buttons until Send fax later appears, and then press OK .

5.

Use the alphanumeric buttons to enter the time.

Performance problems

Problem Cause Solution

Faxes are transmitting or being received very slowly.

The fax might be very complex, such as one with many graphics.

Complex faxes take longer to be sent or received. Breaking longer faxes into multiple jobs and decreasing the resolution can increase the transmission speed.

The receiving fax machine might have a slow modem speed.

The product sends the fax only at the fastest modem speed that the receiving fax machine can accept.

The resolution at which the fax was sent or is being received might be very high.

To receive the fax, call and ask the sender to lower the resolution and resend the fax. To send the fax, lower the resolution and resend the fax.

The telephone line might be experiencing line noise.

Hang up and resend the fax. Have the telephone company check the telephone line.

If the fax is being sent via a digital phone line, contact the service provider.

The fax is being sent via an international call.

Allow more time to transmit fax jobs internationally.

The original document has a colored background.

Reprint the original document with a white background, and then resend the fax.

The fax activity logs or fax call reports are printing at inappropriate times.

The fax activity log or fax call reports settings are not correct.

The product sounds are too loud or too soft.

The volume setting might not be adjusted correctly.

Print a configuration page and check when the reports print.

Adjust the product volume setting.

Paper handling

Use the HP ToolboxFX paper-handling options to configure the default settings. These are the same

options that are available on the product control-panel. For more information, see Control panel on page 9

.

Three options are available for handling print jobs when the product is out of media:

Select Wait for paper to be loaded.

Select Cancel from the Paper out action drop-down list to cancel the print job.

● Select Override from the Paper out time drop-down list to send the print job to another paper tray.

The Paper out time field specifies how long the product waits before acting on the selections. You can specify from 0 to 3600 seconds.

NOTE:

You must click Apply before the changes take effect.

Print quality

Use the HP ToolboxFX print-quality options to improve the appearance of print jobs. These are the same options that are available on the product control panel. For more information, see

Control panel on page 9

.

The four options provided for controlling print quality are resolution, REt (Resolution Enhancement technology), print density, and EconoMode.

Resolution. Select 600 resolution for average print jobs and Fast Res 1200 for higher-quality print jobs.

REt. You can turn on REt, which HP provides for improved print quality.

Print density. For increased print density, select a higher number. For decreased print density, select a lower number.

EconoMode. Turn EconoMode on when you are printing average print jobs. EconoMode is a feature that allows the product to use less toner per page. Selecting this option might extend the life of the toner supply and might reduce cost per page. However, it will also reduce print quality.

The printed image is lighter, but it is adequate for printing drafts or proofs. HP does not recommend full-time use of EconoMode. If EconoMode is used full-time, it is possible that the toner supply will outlast the mechanical parts in the print cartridge. If print quality begins to degrade under these circumstances, you will need to install a new print cartridge, even if there is toner supply remaining in the cartridge.

NOTE:

You must click Apply before the changes take effect.

Embedded Web server

This product is equipped with an embedded Web server (EWS), which provides access to information about product and network activities. A Web server provides an environment in which web programs may run, much in the same way that an operating system, such as Windows, provides an environment for programs to run on a computer. The output from these programs can then be displayed by a Web browser, such as Microsoft Internet Explorer, Safari, or Netscape Navigator.

An “embedded” Web server resides on a hardware device (such as an HP LaserJet product) or in firmware, rather than as software that is loaded on a network server.

The advantage of an EWS is that it provides an interface to the product that anyone with a networkconnected product and computer can use. There is no special software to install or configure, but you must have a supported Web browser on the computer. To gain access to the EWS, type the IP address for the product in the address line of the browser. (To find the IP address, print a configuration page.

For more information about printing a configuration page, see Information pages on page 140

.)

NOTE:

For Macintosh operating systems, you can use the EWS over a USB connection after installing the Macintosh software included with the product.

Features

The EWS allows you to view product and network status and manage printing functions from a computer.

With the EWS, you can complete the following tasks:

● View product status information

Determine the remaining life on all supplies and order new ones

● View and change part of the product configuration

View and print some internal pages

● Select the language in which to display the EWS pages

View and change network configuration

● Set, change, or clear the product security password (see

Turn on password protection on page 99

).

NOTE:

Changing network settings in the EWS might disable some of product software or features.

● Store the supply in a dark, dry location away from heat and magnetic sources.

HP policy on non-HP supplies

Hewlett-Packard Company cannot recommend the use of non-HP supplies, either new or remanufactured. Because they are not HP products, HP cannot influence their design or control their quality. Service or repairs required as a result of using a non-HP supply will not be covered under the warranty.

HP fraud hotline

Call the HP fraud hotline if the product or HP ToolboxFX indicates that the print cartridge is not an

HP print cartridge and you think that it is genuine. HP will help determine if the product is genuine and take steps to resolve the problem.

The print cartridge might not be a genuine HP one if you notice the following issues:

● You are experiencing a large number of problems with the print cartridge.

The print cartridge does not look like it usually does (for example, the pull tab or the box is different).

In the United States, call toll-free: 1-877-219-3183.

Outside the United States, you can call collect. Dial the operator and ask to place a collect call to this telephone number: 1-770-263-4745. If you do not speak English, a representative at the HP fraud hotline who speaks your language will assist you. Or, if someone who speaks your language is not available, a language line interpreter will connect approximately one minute after the beginning of the call. The language line interpreter is a service that will translate between you and the representative for the HP fraud hotline.

Print-media guidelines

For best results, make sure that the paper is of good quality, and free of cuts, nicks, tears, spots, loose particles, dust, wrinkles, voids, staples, and curled or bent edges.

For best-quality printing, use a smooth type of paper. Generally, smoother media produces better results.

If you are unsure what type of paper you are loading (such as bond or recycled), check the label on the package of paper.

Do not use media that is designed for inkjet printers only. Use media that is designed for laser printers.

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 or embossed letterhead.

The product 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 this fusing temperature (200°C or 392°F for

0.1 second).

CAUTION:

Failure to follow these guidelines could cause jams or damage to the product.

ENWW Solve image-quality problems 189

Problem

Part of the image did not scan.

The scan takes too long

Cause Solution

The original might have been loaded incorrectly.

A colored background might be causing images in the foreground to blend into the background.

The original is longer than 381 mm (15 inches).

Use the media guides when you load the originals into the ADF. See

Load originals for scanning on page 78 .

Try adjusting the settings before you scan the original or enhancing the image after you scan the original.

The maximum scannable length is 381 mm

(15 inches) when you use the automatic document feeder (ADF) input tray. If the page exceeds the maximum length, the scanner stops. (Copies can be longer.)

The original is too small.

The media size is incorrect.

CAUTION:

Do not try to pull the original from the ADF; you might damage the scanner or your original. See

Clear jams from the ADF on page 171 .

The minimum size that the flatbed scanner supports is 25 x 25 mm (1 x 1 inch). The minimum size that the ADF supports is 127 x 127 mm (5 x 5 inches). The original might be jammed. See

Clear jams from the ADF on page 171 .

In Scan settings, make sure that the input media size is large enough for the document that you are scanning.

The resolution or color level is set too high.

Change the resolution and color settings to the correct settings for your job. See

Scanner resolution and color on page 84 .

The software is set to scan in color.

The system default is color, which takes longer to scan even when scanning a monochrome original. If you acquire an image through TWAIN or WIA, you can change the settings so that the original scans in grayscale or black-and-white. See the product software Help for details.

A print job or copy job was sent before you tried to scan.

If someone sent a print job or copy job before you tried to scan, the scan will start if the scanner is not busy. However, because the product and scanner share memory, the scan might be slower.

Print-quality checklist

General print-quality problems can be solved by using the following checklist:

1.

Make sure that the paper or print media that you are using meets specifications. See

Paper and print media on page 45 . Generally, smoother paper provides better results.

2.

If you are using a special print media such as labels, transparencies, glossy, or letterhead, ensure that you have printed by type. See

Change the print driver to match the media type and size on page 52 .

3.

Print a configuration page and supplies status page at the product control panel. See Information pages on page 140 .

Check the supplies status page to see if any supplies are low or empty. No information is provided for non-HP print cartridges.

If the pages do not print correctly, the problem is with the hardware. Contact HP. See www.hp.com/support/ljm1522 or the support flyer that came in the product box.

4.

Print a demo page from HP ToolboxFX. If the page prints, the problem is with the printer driver.

Try printing from another printer driver. For example, if you are using the PCL 6 printer driver, print from the PS printer driver.

Use the Add Printer Wizard in the Printers (or Printers and Faxes in Windows XP) dialog box to install the PS driver.

5.

Try printing from a different program. If the page prints correctly, the problem is with the program from which you were printing.

6.

Restart the computer and the product and try printing again. If the problem is not resolved, see

General print-quality issues on page 179 .

Manage and configure printer drivers

Print-quality settings affect how light or dark the print is on the page and the style in which the graphics are printed. You can also use the print-quality settings to optimize the print quality for a specific media type.

You can change the settings in the product properties to accommodate the types of jobs that you are printing. The following settings are available, depending on the printer driver that you are using:

600 dpi

FastRes 1200

Custom: This setting produces the same resolution as the default setting, but you can change the scale patterns.

NOTE:

Changing the resolution can change the formatting of your text.

Temporarily change print-quality settings

To change the print-quality settings only for the current software program, open the properties through the Print Setup menu in the program that you are using to print.

Information pages on page 140

. Verify that the name, IP address, or "Rendezvous" or

"Bonjour" host name on the configuration page matches the product name, IP address, or "Rendezvous" or "Bonjour" host name in the

Printer Setup Utility.

An encapsulated PostScript (EPS) file does not print with the correct fonts.

Cause

This problem occurs with some programs.

Solution

Try downloading the fonts that are contained in the EPS file to the product before printing.

Send the file in ASCII format instead of binary encoding.

You are unable to print from a third-party USB card.

Cause

This error occurs when the software for USB printers is not installed.

Solution

Table 12-3 Problems with Mac OS X v10.3, Mac OS X v10.4, and Mac OS X v10.5 (continued)

When connected with a USB cable, the product does not appear in the Macintosh Printer Setup Utility after the driver is selected.

Cause

This problem is caused by either a software or a hardware component.

Solution

Software troubleshooting

● Check that your Macintosh supports USB.

Verify that your Macintosh operating system is Mac OS X v10.3

or Mac OS X v10.4.

● Ensure that your Macintosh has the appropriate USB software from Apple.

Hardware troubleshooting

● Check that the product is turned on.

Verify that the USB cable is connected correctly.

● Check that you are using the appropriate high-speed USB cable.

Ensure that you do not have too many USB devices drawing power from the chain. Disconnect all of the devices from the chain, and connect the cable directly to the USB port on the host computer.

● Check to see if more than two nonpowered USB hubs are connected in a row on the chain. Disconnect all of the devices from the chain and connect the cable directly to the USB port on the host computer.

NOTE:

The iMac keyboard is a nonpowered USB hub.

Solve PostScript (PS) errors

The following situations are PS language specific and may occur when several product languages are being used.

Options dialog box and click the selection next to the PS Errors section. You can also use the embedded

Web server.

Table 12-4 PS errors

Issue Cause Solution

The job prints in Courier (the product's default typeface) instead of the typeface you requested.

The requested typeface is not downloaded. A personality switch may have been performed to print a PCL job just before the PS printing job was received.

A legal page prints with clipped margins. Print job too complex.

A PS error page prints.

Print job may not be PS.

Download the desired font and send the print job again. Verify the type and location of the font. Download to the product if applicable. Check with the software documentation.

You may need to print your job at

600 dots per inch, reduce the complexity of the page, or install more memory.

Make sure the print job is a PS job. Check to see whether the software program expected a setup or PS header file to be sent to the product.

PERMITTED, DO NOT EXCLUDE, RESTRICT OR MODIFY AND ARE IN ADDITION TO THE MANDATORY

STATUTORY RIGHTS APPLICABLE TO THE SALE OF THIS PRODUCT TO YOU.

Customer self repair warranty service

HP products are designed with many Customer Self Repair (CSR) parts to minimize repair time and allow for greater flexibility in performing defective parts replacement. If during the diagnosis period, HP identifies that the repair can be accomplished by the use of a CSR part, HP will ship that part directly to you for replacement. There are two categories of CSR parts: 1) Parts for which customer self repair is mandatory. If you request HP to replace these parts, you will be charged for the travel and labor costs of this service. 2) Parts for which customer self repair is optional. These parts are also designed for

Customer Self Repair. If, however, you require that HP replace them for you, this may be done at no additional charge under the type of warranty service designated for your product.

Based on availability and where geography permits, CSR parts will be shipped for next business day delivery. Same-day or four-hour delivery may be offered at an additional charge where geography permits. If assistance is required, you can call the HP Technical Support Center and a technician will help you over the phone. HP specifies in the materials shipped with a replacement CSR part whether a defective part must be returned to HP. In cases where it is required to return the defective part to HP, you must ship the defective part back to HP within a defined period of time, normally five (5) business days. The defective part must be returned with the associated documentation in the provided shipping material. Failure to return the defective part may result in HP billing you for the replacement. With a customer self repair, HP will pay all shipping and part return costs and determine the courier/carrier to be used.

Safety statements

Laser safety

The Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has implemented regulations for laser products manufactured since August 1, 1976. Compliance is mandatory for products marketed in the United States. The device is certified as a “Class 1” laser product under the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) Radiation Performance Standard according to the Radiation Control for Health and Safety Act of 1968. Since radiation emitted inside the device is completely confined within protective housings and external covers, the laser beam cannot escape during any phase of normal user operation.

WARNING!

Using controls, making adjustments, or performing procedures other than those specified in this user guide may result in exposure to hazardous radiation.

Glossary

ADF Automatic document feeder. The ADF is used to automatically feed originals into the product for copying, scanning, or faxing.

browser Short for Web browser, a software program that is used to locate and open Web pages.

collate The process of printing a multiple-copy job in sets. When collate is selected, the product prints an entire set before printing additional copies. Otherwise, the product prints the specified number of copies of one page before printing the subsequent pages.

comma (,) A comma in a fax dial sequence indicates that the product will pause at that point in the dialing sequence.

contrast The difference between the dark and light areas of an image. The lower the number value, the more closely the shades resemble each other. The higher the number, the more the shades appear separate from each other.

dedicated line A single telephone line that is used exclusively for either voice calls or fax calls.

distinctive ring A service offered by some telephone companies in some countries/regions that allows two or three phone numbers to be set up on the same telephone line. Each phone number has a different ring pattern, and the fax machine can be configured to recognize the distinctive ring of the fax number.

dots per inch (dpi) A measurement of resolution that is used for printing. Generally, more dots per inch result in a higher resolution, more visible detail in the image, and a larger file size.

DSL Digital subscriber line, a technology that enables a high-speed, direct connection to the Internet through telephone lines.

e-mail (electronic mail) An abbreviation for electronic mail. Software that can be used to electronically transmit items over a communications network.

fax An abbreviation of facsimile. The electronic encoding of a printed page and the transmission of the electronic page over a telephone line. The product software can send items to electronic fax programs, which require a modem and fax software.

fax functions Fax-related tasks that are done from the control panel or software that affect only the current job, or are done only once before returning to the Ready state, such as clearing memory. These functions are in their own section in the control-panel menu.

fax settings Fax-related items that, when set or changed, continue to use the choice made until changed again.

An example would be the number of times set for the product to redial a busy number. These settings are in their own section of the control panel menu.

file format The way the contents of a file are structured by a program or group of programs.

ENWW Glossary 227

grayscale Shades of gray that represent light and dark portions of an image when color images are converted to grayscale; colors are represented by various shades of gray.

halftone An image type that simulates grayscale by varying the number of dots. Highly colored areas consist of a large number of dots, while lighter areas consist of a smaller number of dots.

HP Director A software screen that is used when working with documents. When the document is loaded into the automatic document feeder (ADF) and the computer is connected directly to the product, the HP Director appears on the computer screen to initiate faxing, copying, or scanning.

HP ToolboxFX HP ToolboxFX is a program that provides access to the product management and troubleshooting tools, embedded Web server, and product documentation. HP ToolboxFX does not support

Macintosh operating systems.

ISDN Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN) is a suite of internationally adopted standards for end-to-end digital communication over the public telephone network.

link A connection to a program or device that can be used to send information from the product software to other programs, such as e-mail, electronic fax, and OCR links.

optical character recognition (OCR) software OCR software converts an electronic image of text, such as a scanned document, into a form that word processor, spreadsheet, and database programs can use.

pixels per inch (ppi) A measurement of resolution that is used for scanning. Generally, more pixels per inch result in a higher resolution, more visible detail in the image, and a larger file size.

printer driver A printer driver is a program that software programs use to gain access to a product’s features.

A printer driver translates a software program’s formatting commands (such as page breaks and font selection) into a printer language (such as PostScript or PCL), and then sends the print file to the product.

private branch exchange (PBX) A small telephone switching system that typically is used by large businesses or universities to connect all telephone extensions within the organization. A PBX also connects to the public switched telephone network (PSTN) and may be either manual or dial, depending on the method used by extensions to place incoming or outgoing calls. Normally, the equipment is owned by the customer rather than leased from the telephone company.

public switched telephone network (PSTN) The worldwide dial-up telephone network or a portion of that network. Users are assigned unique phone numbers, which allow them to connect to the PSTN through local telephone exchange companies. Often, this phrase is used when referring to data or other non-telephone services carried over a path initially established using normal telephone signaling and ordinary switched long-distance telephone circuits.

Readiris An optical character recognition (OCR) program that was developed by I.R.I.S. and that is included with the product software.

resolution The sharpness of an image, measured in dots per inch (dpi). The higher the dpi, the greater the resolution.
