loading paper
You can print color photos on 10x15 cm photo paper (with or without a tear-off tab), plain
paper, or index cards. For best printing results, use HP Photo Paper. HP papers can be found
at most computer and office supply stores or on the Web at: www.hpshopping.com (U.S.)
www.hp-go-supplies.com (Europe), www.jpn.hp.com/supply/inkjet (Japan), www. hp.com/paper
(Asia Pacific).

Note:
With papers other than HP Premium, you may experience
paper feeding or ejecting problems. Try loading fewer
sheets of paper at a time and be sure the edges of the
paper stack are even.
As it prints, the printer pulls the paper straight through the paper slot, out the back,
and then through to the front again. Be sure the rear paper path of the printer is at
least 10 inches away from any obstruction.

To load paper:

1. Open the paper tray door.
2. Place a stack of paper on the paper tray and
slide it underneath the output guide.

The printer prints on the side of the paper
that is facing up. If you are using photo
paper, load the paper with the glossy side
up. If you are using tabbed paper, load
the paper into the tray so the tab feeds
into the printer first.

•
Load 10 - 20 sheets of photo paper or
index cards. (For information, see the
loading instructions that come with your
photo paper.)
•
Use one type and size of paper at a time. Do not mix paper types or sizes in the
paper tray.
3. Move the paper width guide on the paper tray to fit close to the left edge of the paper
without bending the paper. This allows the paper to feed into the printer correctly so that
your photos will print straight.
22
installing or removing the print cartridge
To get the best performance from your printer, use only genuine HP factory-filled print
cartridges.
Make sure you are using the correct print cartridge (HP #57). Damage to the printer or
cartridge resulting from the modification or refilling of HP print cartridges is specifically
excluded from HP warranty coverage.
You can install and remove the print cartridge while the printer is either on or off. When you
insert a new print cartridge for the first time, the printer automatically prints a calibration
page. If you remove the print cartridge and reinsert it, another calibration page will not print.
To conserve photo paper, you can print the calibration page on an index card.
Note:
getting started
Caution:
If the printer is off when you change the print cartridge, the calibration page prints
when you turn the printer on.
23
To install the print cartridge:
getting started
1. Take the new print cartridge out of its package and pull the tab to remove the clear plastic
tape.
Note:
Do NOT touch the ink nozzles or the copper contacts on the print cartridge.
Touching these parts may cause print cartridge failure.

You are now ready to print your photos.
Caution:
Do not remove the memory card from the printer while the memory card is in use (the
memory card light is blinking). This may damage the printer, the memory card, or the
information on the memory card.
Caution:
When printing from the memory card while connected to a Windows PC, you may damage
the memory card if you remove it while Windows is still accessing it. For more information,

selecting photos to print
The printer assigns a photo number to each photo on the memory card. Due to differing
numbering schemes, and how some digital cameras handle re-numbering of photos when
photos are deleted, the photo numbers assigned by the printer may not match those shown
on your camera’s LCD. For this reason, it is always best to print an index page before
printing your photos, so that you will be using the printer’s photo numbers to select the
correct photos for printing.
40
To select a single photo to print:
1. Use XTab to position the cursor in the first part of the Choose Photos section of the Setup
LCD.
2. Use Scroll Up (+) or Scroll Down (-) to select the photo to print.
Tip:
To get to the desired photo faster, press and hold down either Scroll Up (+) or
Scroll Down (-) to activate auto-repeat. This allows you to reach the desired photo
number without having to repeatedly press the button.

approximately a minute and a half to print. Depending on the number of

The images on an index page print at a low resolution in order to print
quickly, so they do not represent the final print quality of the other photo
sizes.

printing from memory cards
Many digital cameras allow you to choose which photos to print while you are reviewing the
photos using the camera’s LCD. Your selections are stored in a digital print order format
(DPOF) file. This file tells the printer which photos to print, the size of each photo, and how
many of each photo to print.
Note:
If you have an HP direct printing digital camera, you can print camera-selected
photos by connecting directly to your printer’s USB port using the special USB cable
that shipped with your camera. After connecting the camera to the printer, the Print
Setup screen appears on the camera. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete
the printing process. Be sure to select 10x15 cm as the paper size. For more
information, see your camera documentation.

printing from a DPOF file
Note:
When you print from a DPOF file, you will not be able to use the control panel to
choose the photo size, range, or number of copies. This is because the DPOF file
created by the camera specifies these settings. If the DPOF file specifies “standard”
for the photo size, the photo will print at 10x15 cm; if it specifies “index” for the
photo size, the photo will print at 1.5x2 cm size.
51
printing from DPOF files
To print from a DPOF file:
1. Use your digital camera to create a DPOF file on the memory card.
Note:
The settings you can use when creating a DPOF file are specific to your camera.
See your digital camera’s documentation for information on creating a DPOF
file.
2. Insert the memory card into your printer. For details, see “inserting a memory card” on
page 28.
The printer automatically recognizes the DPOF file on the memory card.
•
The DPOF icon appears in the Status LCD
to indicate a DPOF file is on the memory
card.
•
DPOF appears in the Photo Size section to
indicate that the photo size (standard or
index) will be read from the DPOF file.
•
DPOF appears in the Choose Photos
section to indicate the photos to be printed
will be read from the DPOF file.
3. On the control panel, press Print.

To exit DPOF mode:
1. Press XTab, Scroll Up (+), or Scroll Down (-) to exit DPOF mode. The cursor will be in the

5 care and maintenance
transporting your printer
Your printer can travel with you. Be sure to always carry the printer upright.
To transport your printer:
1. Press Power to turn off the printer.
care and maintenance
Your printer requires little maintenance. Transport your printer with care, keep it clean and in
good condition, and keep the print cartridge inside the printer at all times.
2. Remove all paper from the paper tray.
3. Close the paper tray door.
Note:
Make sure the printer completes its power-down cycle before you disconnect the
power. This allows the printer to store the print cartridges in a protected state.
4. Unplug the power adapter and plug the two metal prongs back into the power adapter.
5. If your printer was connected to your computer, disconnect the USB cable from the
computer.
Note:
When transporting your printer, do not remove the print cartridge.
55
care and maintenance
When transporting your printer, make sure to bring the following items with you:
•
Paper
•
Power adapter
•
Memory card containing photos, or your digital camera
•
Extra HP #57 print cartridges (if you plan to print a lot of photos)
Note:
If you are going to connect your printer to a computer, make sure to also bring your
USB cable and printer software CD.
storing your printer and supplies
storing your printer
Your printer is built to withstand short or long periods of inactivity. Close the paper tray door
when the printer is not in use. Store the printer out of direct sunlight and in a place that does
not have temperature extremes (such as indoors).
storing the print cartridge
Always transport and store the used print cartridge inside the printer. The printer stores the
print cartridges in a protective cap.
56
Make sure the printer completes its power-down cycle before you disconnect the power. This
allows the printer to store the print cartridge correctly.
storing paper
Store photo paper in its original packaging on a level surface in a cool, dry location.
cleaning your printer
To clean the outside of the printer, use a cloth that has been lightly moistened with water.
care and maintenance
If the printer and print cartridge have been unused for a month or more, print a test page to
clean the print cartridge before using it. See below for details.
Important: Do not use cleaners or soaps as they may damage the printer’s finish.
printing a test page
The test page is used to diagnose print cartridge problems. Printing it also cleans the print
cartridge. You should print a test page any time you suspect something is wrong with your
print cartridge—the print cartridge cleaning that happens when you print the test page can
resolve many print quality problems.
57
care and maintenance
You can print the test page up to three times, each time completing a more thorough print
cartridge cleaning.
58
Note:
To conserve photo paper, you can print the test page on an index card.
To print a test page using the control panel:
1. If there is a memory card in any of the card slots, remove the memory card.
2. On the control panel, press and hold Print for a few seconds. The printer begins to print
a test page.
