7

Insert up to 500 sheets of paper into the tray. Do not fill the input tray above the paper fill marks on the guide.

a Load Letter or A4 paper with the top of the page toward the rear of the tray and with the side-to-beprinted down for single-sided printing.

For two-sided printing, load the top of the page toward the rear of the tray and with the first side-tobe-printed up.

b Load short-edge fed media with the top of the page toward the right side of the tray and with the side-to-be-printed down for singlesided printing.

For two-sided printing, load media with the top of the page toward the left side of the tray and with the first side-to-be-printed up.

8

Make sure the paper size tab is set correctly.

9

Slide the tray back into the printer.

If you wish to select your paper by type rather than tray (source), see your online user guide.

If you wish to print on paper sizes larger than letter or A4, adjust the paper stop guide on the Standard Output Bin (Facedown). (See your online user guide for instructions.)

Load Trays 2 and 3

Step 8 Load Tray 1 (Optional)

Tray 1 is a multi-purpose tray and holds up to 100 sheets of paper or 10 envelopes.

Tray 1 provides a convenient way to print envelopes, transparencies, custom-size paper, labels, or other types of media without having to unload the other trays.

CAUTION

To avoid a paper jam, never add or remove paper from Tray 1 while the printer is printing.

To avoid damaging the printer, print labels, envelopes, and transparencies from Tray 1 only. Send them to the Faceup Bin, do not print them on both sides, and remove them promptly.

Note

Paper loaded in Tray 1 will be printed first unless the Tray 1 setting is changed from the printer control panel. To change the order in which trays will be printed from, see your online user guide.

To ensure reliability, use an IEEE-1284 bi-directional C-type parallel cable. (These cables are clearly marked with “IEEE-1284.”) Only

IEEE-1284 cables support all of the printer’s advanced features.

1

Make sure the printer and your computer are turned off.

Note

The cable should install easily. If installation is difficult, check the cable orientation.

2

Connect the parallel cable to the printer parallel port. Press the locking release levers in while connecting the cable.

Step 14 Install Printing Software

Note

The printer comes with printing software on a CD-ROM. The printer drivers on this CD-ROM must be installed to take full advantage of the printer features. If your computer does not have a CD-ROM drive, but you have access to one, you can copy the printing software from the

CD-ROM onto diskettes for installation on your computer.

If you do not have access to a CD-ROM drive, go to www.hp.com and download the drivers, or call HP to order diskettes. The most recent drivers are available on the Internet. Depending on the configuration of Windows-driven computers, the installation program for the printer software automatically checks the computer for Internet access to obtain the latest software.

Printer installation software for UNIX (HP-UX, Sun Solaris) networks is available for download at http://www.hp.com/support/net_printing.

For configuration and management using your web browser, use

HP Web JetAdmin. For information on HP Web JetAdmin, go to http://www.hp.com/go/webjetadmin.

See the HP Customer Care pages at the front of the printer user guide for more information.
