Chapter 1 Printer basics
ENWW
Media paths
The following sections describe the input trays, output bins, and media paths.
Single-sheet priority input slot (Tray 1)
You should use the single-sheet priority input slot when feeding one sheet of paper,
envelope, postcard, label, or transparency. You can also use the single-sheet priority input
slot to print the first page on different media than the rest of the document.
Media guides ensure that the media is correctly fed into the printer and that the print is not
skewed (crooked on the media). When loading media, adjust the media guides to match the
width of the media that you are using.
Note
The printer automatically prints from the single-sheet priority input slot before printing from
the main input tray.
See Choosing paper and other media for more information about media types.
Main input tray (Tray 2)
The enclosed main input tray, accessed from the front of the printer, holds up to 250 sheets
of 20 lb paper or other media.
The main input tray supports paper with the following specifications:
ENWW
●
Weight: Up to 60 to 105 g/m2 (16 to 28 lb.).
●
Size: From 147 x 211 mm (5.8 x 8.27 inches) to 216 x 356 mm (8.5 x 14 inches).
Media paths
7
Media guides ensure that the media is correctly fed into the printer and that the print is not
skewed (crooked on the media). The main input tray has both side and rear media guides.
When loading media, adjust the media guides to match the length and width of the media
that you are using.
Straight-through output path
The straight-through output path is useful when you are printing envelopes, transparencies,
heavy media, or any media that tends to curl when printed. Printed media exits in reverse
order when the straight-through output door is open.
Note
8
Printed media does not stack when you use the straight-through output path. The media
drops to the surface below unless you remove each sheet as it exits the printer.
Chapter 1 Printer basics
ENWW
Output bin
The output bin is located on the top of the printer. Printed media is collected here in the
correct sequence when the straight-through output door is closed. The media support
provides improved stacking for large print jobs. Use the output bin when printing normal and
large, collated documents.
ENWW
Media paths
9
Print cartridge access
The print cartridge door is located on the front of the printer. You must open the print
cartridge door to access the print cartridge, clear jams, and clean the printer. To open the
print cartridge door, grasp the center and pull the print cartridge door toward you.

also change print settings through the embedded Web server. Changes made to print
settings are prioritized according to where the changes are made, as follows:
●
Changes made in the software application override settings changed anywhere else.
Within a software application, changes made in the Page Setup dialog box override
changes made in the Print dialog box.
●
Changes made in the printer driver (printer Properties dialog box) override settings in the
HP toolbox. Changes made in the printer driver do not override settings in the software
application.
●
Changes made in the HP toolbox and the embedded Web server have the lowest priority.
If a particular print setting can be changed in more than one of the ways listed above, use
the method that has the highest priority.

Printer media specifications
HP LaserJet printers produce excellent print quality. The printer accepts a variety of media,
such as cut-sheet paper (including recycled paper), envelopes, labels, transparencies,
vellum, and custom-size paper. Properties such as weight, grain, and moisture content are
important factors affecting printer performance and output quality.
The printer can use a variety of paper and other print media in accordance with the
guidelines in this user guide. Media that does not meet these guidelines might cause the
following problems:
●
Poor print quality
●
Increased media jams
●
Premature wear on the printer, requiring repair
For best results, use only HP brand paper and print media. Hewlett-Packard Company
cannot recommend the use of other brands. Because they are not HP products, HP cannot
influence or control their quality.
It is possible for media to meet all of the guidelines in this user guide and still not produce
satisfactory results. This might be the result of improper handling, unacceptable temperature
and humidity levels, or other variables over which Hewlett-Packard has no control.
Before you purchase a large quantity of media, make sure that it meets the requirements
specified in this user guide and in HP LaserJet printer family media guide. The guidelines
can be downloaded from http://www.hp.com/support/ljpaperguide/ or see Ordering supplies
and accessories for more information about ordering the guidelines. Always test media
before you purchase a large quantity.
CAUTION
Using media that does not meet Hewlett-Packard's specifications might cause problems for
the printer, requiring repair. This repair is not covered by the Hewlett-Packard warranty or
service agreements.
Supported media sizes
The following are the supported media sizes:
18
●
Minimum: 76 x 127 mm (3 x 5 in.)
●
Maximum: 216 x 356 mm (8.5 x 14 in.)

Wireless printing
Wireless networks offer a safe, secure, and cost-effective alternative to traditional wired
network connections. The HP LaserJet 1320nw printer has built-in wireless connectivity. For
the other printer models, see 10/100 networking and wireless print servers for a list of
available wireless print servers.
IEEE 802.11b/g standard
With wireless IEEE 802.11b/g compliant connectivity, the printers can be placed in the office
or home and connected to a wireless network running Microsoft, Apple, NetWare, UNIX®, or
Linux® network operating systems. This wireless technology provides a high-quality printing
solution without the physical constraints of wiring. Peripherals can be conveniently placed in
an office or home and can be easily moved without changing network cables.
Optional external HP Jetdirect 802.11b/g print servers are available for USB connections.
See the documentation that came with the HP LaserJet 1320nw printer for more information.
Bluetooth
Bluetooth wireless technology is a low-power, short-range radio technology that can be used
to wirelessly connect computers, printers, personal digital assistants, cell phones, and other
devices.
Unlike infra-red technology, Bluetooth's reliance on radio signals means that devices do not
have to be in the same room, office, or cubicle with an unobstructed line of sight in order to
communicate. This wireless technology increases portability and efficiency within business
network applications.
Bluetooth adapters are available for USB and parallel connections.

Understanding print quality settings
Print quality settings affect how light or dark the print is on the page and the style that the
graphics are printed. You can also use the print quality settings to optimize the print quality
for a specific media type. See Optimizing print quality for media types for more information.
You can change the settings in the printer Properties to accommodate the types of jobs you
are printing. The following are the settings:
●
1200 dpi: (HP LaserJet 1320 series printer only) This setting uses ProRes 1200 to
provide fine-line detail at 1200 x 1200 dpi.
●
1200 dpi effective output quality: This setting provides 1200 dpi effective output
quality using FastRes 1200.
●
600 dpi: This setting provides 600 x 600 dpi output with Resolution Enhancement
technology (REt) for improved text.
●
EconoMode (Saves Toner): Text is printed using less toner. This setting is useful when
you are printing drafts. You can turn on this option independently of other print quality
settings. See Using EconoMode (saves toner) for more information.
1. Access the printer Properties (or Printing Preferences in Windows 2000 and XP). See
Printer Properties (driver) for instructions.
2. On the Paper/Quality tab or the Finishing tab (the Paper Type/Quality tab for some
Mac drivers), select the print quality setting you want to use.
Note
Not all printer features are available in all drivers or operating systems. See the printer
Properties (driver) online Help for information about availability of features for that driver.
Note
To change the print quality settings for all future print jobs, access the Properties through the
Start menu in the Windows task bar. To change the print quality settings only for the current
software application's use, access the Properties through the Print Setup menu in the
application you are using to print. See Printer Properties (driver) for more information.

Chapter 4 Printing tasks
ENWW
Using EconoMode (saves toner)
EconoMode is a feature that allows the printer to use less toner per page. Selecting this
option will extend the life of the toner supply and will 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 the full-time use of EconoMode. If EconoMode is used full-time
when the average toner coverage is significantly less than 5 percent, 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 must install a new print cartridge, even if there is
toner supply remaining in the cartridge.
1. To enable EconoMode, access the printer Properties (or Printing Preferences in
Windows 2000 and XP). See Graphics quality for instructions.
2. On the Paper/Quality tab or the Finishing tab (the Paper Type/Quality tab for some
Mac drivers), select the EconoMode checkbox.
Note
Not all printer features are available in all drivers or operating systems. See the printer

Guidelines for using media
The following sections provide guidelines and instructions for printing on transparencies,
envelopes, and other special media. Guidelines and specifications are included to help you
select media that optimizes print quality and avoid media that may cause jams or damage
the printer.
Paper
For best results, use conventional 75 g/m2 (20 lb) paper. Make sure that the paper is of good
quality and free of cuts, nicks, tears, spots, loose particles, dust, wrinkles, voids, and curled
or bent edges.
If you are unsure about what type of paper you are loading (such as bond or recycled),
check the label on the package of paper.
Some paper causes print quality problems, jamming, or damage to the printer.
Paper usage
Symptom
Problem with paper
Solution
Poor print quality or toner
adhesion.
Too moist, too rough, too
smooth, or embossed.
Problems with feeding.
Faulty paper lot.
Try another kind of paper:
between 100-250 Sheffield and
4-6 percent moisture content.
Check the printer and make
sure that the appropriate media
type has been selected.
Dropouts, jamming, or curl.
Stored improperly.
Store paper flat in its
moistureproof wrapping.
Increased gray background
shading.
Might be too heavy.
Use lighter paper.
Excessive curl.
Too moist, wrong grain
direction, or short-grain
construction.
Use long-grain paper.
Problems with feeding.
Print using the straight-through
output path.
Check the printer and make
sure that the appropriate media
type has been selected.
ENWW
Jamming or damage to printer.
Cutouts or perforations.
Do not use paper with cutouts
or perforations.
Problems with feeding.
Ragged edges.
Use good quality paper.
Guidelines for using media
43
The printer 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 the printer temperature (200° C
(392° F) for 0.1 second).
Note
Do not use letterhead that is printed with low-temperature inks, such as those used in some
types of thermography.
Do not use raised letterhead.
Do not use transparencies designed for Inkjet printers or other low temperature printers. Use
only transparencies that are specified for use with HP LaserJet printers.
Labels
HP recommends that you print labels from the single-sheet priority input slot (Tray 1) using
the straight-through output path. See Straight-through output path for more information.
CAUTION
Do not feed a sheet of labels through the printer more than once. The adhesive degrades
and might damage the printer.
Label construction
When selecting labels, consider the quality of the following components:
●
Adhesives: The adhesive material should be stable at 200° C (392° F), the printer's
maximum temperature.
●
Arrangement: Only use labels with no exposed backing between them. Labels can peel
off sheets that have spaces between the labels, causing serious jams.
●
Curl: Prior to printing, labels must lie flat with no more than 13 mm (0.5 in.) of curl in any
direction.
●
Condition: Do not use labels with wrinkles, bubbles, or other indications of separation.
Transparencies
Transparencies must be able to withstand 200° C (392° F), the printer's maximum
temperature.
CAUTION
You can print transparencies from the main input tray (Tray 2). However, do not load more
than 75 transparencies at one time.
Envelopes
HP recommends that you print envelopes from the single-sheet priority input slot (Tray 1)
using the straight-through paper path. See Straight-through output path for more information.
44
Chapter 4 Printing tasks
ENWW
Envelope construction
Envelope construction is critical. Envelope fold lines can vary considerably, not only between
manufacturers, but also within a box from the same manufacturer. Successful printing on
envelopes depends upon the quality of the envelopes. When selecting envelopes, consider
the following components:
●
Weight: The weight of the envelope paper should not exceed 90 g/m2 (24 lb), or
jamming might result.
●
Construction: Prior to printing, envelopes should lie flat with less than 6 mm (0.25 in.)
curl and should not contain air. Envelopes that trap air may cause problems. Do not use
envelopes that contain clasps, snaps, tie strings, transparent windows, holes,
perforations, cut outs, synthetic materials, stamping, or embossing. Do not use
envelopes with adhesives that do not require moistening, but rely instead on pressure to
seal them.
●
Condition: Make sure that the envelopes are not wrinkled, nicked, or otherwise
damaged. Make sure that the envelopes do not have any exposed adhesive.
●
Sizes: From 90 x 160 mm (3.5 x 6.3 in.) to 178 x 254 mm (7 x 10 in.).
Envelopes with double-side seams
An envelope with double-side-seam construction has vertical seams at both ends of the
envelope rather than diagonal seams. This style might be more likely to wrinkle. Make sure
that the seam extends all the way to the corner of the envelope as shown in the following
illustration:
1
2
acceptable envelope construction
unacceptable envelope construction
Envelopes with adhesive strips or flaps
Envelopes with a peel-off adhesive strip or with more than one flap that folds over to seal
must use adhesives compatible with the heat and pressure in the printer: 200° C (392° F).
The extra flaps and strips might cause wrinkling, creasing, or jams.
ENWW
Guidelines for using media
45
Envelope storage
Proper storage of envelopes contributes to good print quality. You should store envelopes
flat. If air is trapped in an envelope, creating an air bubble, the envelope might wrinkle during
printing.
Card stock and heavy media
You can print many types of card stock from the paper input tray, including index cards and
postcards. Some card stock performs better than others because its construction is better
suited for feeding through a laser printer.
For optimum printer performance, do not use paper heavier than 157 g/m2 (42 lb). Paper that
is too heavy might cause misfeeds, stacking problems, paper jams, poor toner fusing, poor
print quality, or excessive mechanical wear.
Note
You might be able to print on heavier paper if you do not fill the input tray to capacity and if
you use paper with a smoothness rating of 100-180 Sheffield.
Card stock construction
●
Smoothness: 135-157 g/m2 (36-42 lb) card stock should have a smoothness rating of
100-180 Sheffield. 60-135 g/m2 (16-36 lb) card stock should have a smoothness rating
of 100-250 Sheffield.
●
Construction: Card stock should lie flat with less than 5 mm (0.2 in.) of curl.
●
Condition: Make sure that the card stock is not wrinkled, nicked, or otherwise damaged.
●
Sizes: Only use card stock within the following size ranges:
●
Minimum: 76 x 127 mm (3 x 5 in.)
●
Maximum: 216 x 356 mm (8.5 x 14.0 in.)
Card stock guidelines
Set margins at least 2 mm (0.08 in.) away from the edges.
Letterhead and preprinted forms
Letterhead is premium paper that often has a watermark, sometimes uses cotton fiber, and
is available in a wide range of colors and finishes with matching envelopes. Preprinted forms
can be made of a broad spectrum of paper types ranging from recycled to premium.
Many manufacturers now design these grades of paper with properties optimized for laser
printing and advertise the paper as laser compatible or laser guaranteed. Some of the
rougher surface finishes, such as cockle, laid, or linen, might require the special fuser modes
that are available on some printer models to achieve adequate toner adhesion.
Note
46
Some page-to-page variation is normal when printing with laser printers. This variation
cannot be observed when printing on plain paper. However, this variation is obvious when
printing on preprinted forms because the lines and boxes are already placed on the page.
Chapter 4 Printing tasks
ENWW
To avoid problems when using preprinted forms, embossed paper, and letterhead, observe
the following guidelines:
ENWW
●
Avoid using low-temperature inks (the kind used with some types of thermography).
●
Use preprinted forms and letterhead paper that have been printed by offset lithography
or engraving.
●
Use forms that have been created with heat-resistant inks that will not melt, vaporize, or
release undesirable emissions when heated to 205° C (401° F) for 0.1 second. Typically,
oxidation-set or oil-based inks meet this requirement.
●
When the form is preprinted, be careful not to change the moisture content of the paper,
and do not use materials that change the paper's electrical or handling properties. Seal
the forms in moisture-proof wrap to prevent moisture changes during storage.
●
Avoid processing preprinted forms that have a finish or coating.
●
Avoid using heavily embossed or raised-letterhead papers.
●
Avoid papers that have heavily textured surfaces.
●
Avoid using offset powders or other materials that prevent printed forms from sticking
together.
Guidelines for using media
47
Choosing paper and other media
HP LaserJet printers produce excellent print quality documents. You can print on a variety of
media, such as paper (including up to 100% recycled fiber content paper), envelopes, labels,
transparencies, and custom-size media. The following are the supported media sizes:
●
Minimum: 76 by 127 mm (3 by 5 in.)
●
Maximum: 216 by 356 mm (8.5 by 14 in)
Properties such as weight, grain, and moisture content are important factors that affect
printer performance and quality. To achieve the best possible print quality, only use highquality media designed for laser printers. See Printer media specifications for detailed paper
and media specifications.
Note
Always test a sample of the media before you purchase large quantities. Your media
supplier should understand the requirements specified in the HP LaserJet printer family print
media guide (HP part number 5963-7863). See Printer media specifications for more
information.
HP media
HP recommends the following HP media:
●
HP Multipurpose Paper
●
HP Office Paper
●
HP All-in-One Printing Paper
●
HP LaserJet Paper
●
HP Premium Choice LaserJet Paper
Media to avoid
The HP LaserJet 1160 and HP LaserJet 1320 series printers can handle many types of
media. Use of media outside the printer's specifications will cause a loss of print quality and
increase the chance of paper jams occurring.
●
Do not use paper that is too rough.
●
Do not use paper with cutouts or perforations other than standard 3-hole punched paper.
●
Do not use multipart forms.
●
Do not use paper with a watermark if you are printing solid patterns.
Media that may damage the printer
In rare circumstances media can damage the printer. The following media must be avoided
to prevent possible damage:
48
●
Do not use media with staples attached.
●
Do not use transparencies designed for Inkjet printers or other low temperature printers.
Use only transparencies that are specified for use with HP LaserJet printers.
●
Do not use photo paper intended for Inkjet printers.
Chapter 4 Printing tasks
ENWW
●
Do not use paper that is embossed or coated and is not designed for the temperatures
of the printer's image fuser. Select media that can tolerate temperatures of 200° C
(392° F) for 0.1 second. HP produces a selection of media that is designed for the
HP LaserJet 1160 and HP LaserJet 1320 series printers.
●
Do not use letterhead paper with low temperature dyes or thermography. Preprinted
forms or letterhead must use inks that can tolerate temperatures of 200° C (392° F) for
0.1 second.
●
Do not use any media that produces hazardous emissions, or that melts, offsets, or
discolors when exposed to 200° C (392° F) for 0.1 second.

Loading media into the input trays
The following sections describe how to load media into the different input trays.
CAUTION
If you try to print on media that is wrinkled, folded, or damaged in any way, a jam might
occur. See Printer media specifications for more information.
Single-sheet priority input slot (Tray 1)
The single-sheet priority input slot holds one sheet of media up to 163 g/m2 (43 lb) or one
envelope, transparency, or card. Load media with the top forward and the side to be printed
facing up. To prevent jams and skewing, always adjust the side media guides before feeding
the media.
Note
When feeding media into the single-sheet priority input slot, the printer pulls the media
partially into the engine and waits for you to press the GO button (blinking light). You must
wait for the printer to stop before feeding another sheet of media. You can only feed one
sheet of media at a time.
250-sheet input tray (Tray 2 or optional Tray 3)
The input tray holds up to 250 pages of 75 g/m2 (20 lb) paper or fewer pages of heavier
media (25 mm (0.9 in) or less stack height). Load media with the top forward and the side to
be printed facing down. To prevent jams and skewing, always adjust the side and rear media
guides.
Note
50
When you add new media, make sure that you remove all of the media from the input tray
and straighten the stack of new media. This helps prevent multiple sheets of media from
feeding through the printer at one time, reducing media jams.
Chapter 4 Printing tasks
ENWW
Printing an envelope
Only use envelopes that are recommended for laser printers. See Printer media
specifications for more information.
Note
You must load envelopes one at a time in the single-sheet priority input slot (Tray 1).

Cleaning the printer
Clean the outside of the printer with a clean, damp cloth when necessary.
CAUTION
Do not use ammonia-based cleaners on or around the printer.
During the printing process, paper, toner, and dust particles can accumulate inside the
printer. Over time, this buildup can cause print quality problems, such as toner specks or
smearing, and paper jams. To correct and prevent these types of problems, you can clean
the print cartridge area and the printer media path.
Cleaning the print cartridge area
You do not need to clean the print cartridge area often. However, cleaning this area can
improve the quality of your printed sheets.
WARNING!
Before cleaning the printer, turn the printer off by unplugging the power cord, and wait for the
printer to cool.
1. Open the print cartridge door, and remove the print cartridge.
CAUTION
70
To prevent damage, do not expose the print cartridge to light. Cover the print cartridge if
necessary. Also, do not touch the black sponge transfer roller inside the printer. By doing so,
you can damage the printer.
Chapter 5 Maintenance
ENWW
2. With a dry, lint-free cloth, wipe any residue from the media path area and the print
cartridge cavity.
3. Replace the print cartridge, and close the print cartridge door.
4. Plug the power cord back into the printer.
ENWW
Cleaning the printer
71
Cleaning the printer media path
If you are experiencing toner specks or dots on the printouts, clean the printer media path.
This process uses a transparency to remove dust and toner from the media path. Do not use
bond or rough paper.
Note
For best results use a sheet of transparency. If you do not have any transparencies, you can
use copier grade media (70 to 900 g/m2 (18 to 24 lb.)) with a smooth surface.
1. Make sure that the printer is idle and the Ready light is on.
2. Load the media in the input tray.
3. Print a cleaning page using one of the following methods:
Note
72
●
Access the HP toolbox. See Using the hp toolbox for instructions. Click the
Troubleshooting tab, and click Print Quality Tools. Select the cleaning page. Or
●
On the printer control panel, press and hold the GO button until all three lights come
on (about 10 seconds). When all three lights come on, release the GO button.
The cleaning process takes approximately 2 minutes. The cleaning page will stop
periodically during the cleaning process. Do not turn the printer off until the cleaning process
has finished. You might need to repeat the cleaning process several times to thoroughly
clean the printer.

ENWW
Changing the pickup roller
Normal use with good media causes wear. The use of poor media might require more
frequent replacement of the pickup roller.
If the printer regularly mispicks (no media feeds through), you might need to change or clean
the pickup roller. See Ordering supplies and accessories to order a new pickup roller.
CAUTION
Failure to complete this procedure might damage the printer.

Clearing jams
Occasionally, media becomes jammed during a print job. You are notified of a media jam by
an error in the software and the printer control panel lights. See Status light patterns for
more information.
The following are some of the causes of media jams:
●
The input trays are loaded improperly or too full. See Loading media into the input trays
for more information.
When you add new media, always remove all of the media from the input tray and straighten
the stack of new media. This helps prevent multiple sheets of media from feeding through
the printer at one time, reducing media jams.
Note
●
The media does not meet HP specifications. See Printer media specifications for more
information.
●
The printer might need to be cleaned to remove paper dust and other particles from the
paper path. See Cleaning the printer for instructions.
There might be loose toner in the printer after a media jam. This toner clears up after a few
sheets print.
CAUTION
Media jams might result in loose toner on the page. If you get any toner on your clothes,
wash them in cold water. Hot water will permanently set the toner into the fabric.

Regulatory statements
Laser safety statement
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 printer 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 printer 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 could result in exposure to hazardous radiation.

Using HP print cartridges
The following sections provide information about HP print cartridges and instructions for
redistributing toner and changing the print cartridge.
HP policy on non-HP print cartridges
Hewlett-Packard Company cannot recommend the use of non-HP print cartridges, either
new, refilled, or remanufactured. Since they are not HP products, Hewlett-Packard cannot
influence their design or control their quality. Service or repair that is required as a result of
using non-HP print cartridges will not be covered under the printer warranty.
Note
The warranty does not apply to defects resulting from software, interfacing, or parts not
supplied by Hewlett-Packard.
Storing print cartridges
Do not remove the print cartridge from its package until you are ready to use it.
CAUTION
To prevent damage to the print cartridge, minimize its exposure to direct light.
Some HP LaserJet print cartridge packages are stamped with an alphanumeric date code.
This code represents a 30-month period beyond the date of production that facilitates
efficient inventory management processes between HP and its resellers. It does not serve as
an indication of toner life (shelf-life) or relate in any way to warranty terms and conditions.
Print cartridge life expectancy
The life of the print cartridge depends on the amount of toner that your print jobs require.
When printing text at 5 percent coverage, the print cartridge lasts for the following average
amounts:
●
HP LaserJet 1160 printer: 2,500 pages
●
HP LaserJet 1320 series printer: 2,500 pages (a replacement cartridge that lasts for
6,000 pages is also available)
This life expectancy assumes that you set the print density to 3 and turn EconoMode off.
(These are the default settings.)
Saving toner
While in EconoMode, the printer uses less toner on each page. Selecting this option will
extend the life of the print cartridge and reduce your cost per page, but it will reduce print
quality. HP does not recommend the full-time use of EconoMode. See Using EconoMode
(saves toner) for more information.
ENWW
Using HP print cartridges
151
Redistributing toner
When toner is low, faded or light areas appear on the printed page. You might be able to
temporarily improve print quality by redistributing the toner, which means that you might be
able to finish the current print job before replacing the print cartridge.
1. Open the print cartridge door, and remove the print cartridge from the printer.
CAUTION
To prevent damage, do not expose the print cartridge to light. Cover it with a sheet of paper.
2. To redistribute the toner, gently rock the print cartridge from front to back.
CAUTION
If toner gets on your clothing, wipe it off with a dry cloth and wash the clothing in cold water.
Hot water sets toner into the fabric.
3. Reinsert the print cartridge into the printer, and close the print cartridge door.
If the print is still light, install a new print cartridge. See Changing the print cartridge for
instructions.
152
Appendix D HP parts and accessories
ENWW
Changing the print cartridge
1. Open the print cartridge door, and remove the old print cartridge. See the recycling
information inside the print cartridge box.
CAUTION
To prevent damage, do not expose the print cartridge to light. Cover it with a piece of paper.
2. Remove the new print cartridge from the packaging.
3. Bend the tab on the left side of the cartridge to break it loose.
4. Pull the tab until all the tape is removed from the cartridge. Put the tab in the print
cartridge box to return for recycling.

DIMMs (memory or font)
The following sections provide instructions for installing, testing, and removing DIMMs.
Installing a memory DIMM (HP LaserJet 1320 series printer

complex print jobs.
To install a DIMM, follow the instructions below:
CAUTION
Handling a DIMM (memory) without wearing a grounded, antistatic device might damage the
DIMM. Touch any metal part of the printer or other grounded metal before touching the DIMM.
1. Turn off the power switch, and unplug all of the cables connected to the printer.
2. Open the print cartridge door. To open the left side panel, gently pull it out.

CAUTION
CAUTION
164
●
If possible, include print samples and 5 to 10 sheets of paper or other media that did not
print correctly.
●
Remove and keep any DIMMs (memory) installed in the printer. See Installing a memory

Remove and keep the print cartridge.
To prevent damage to the print cartridge, store the print cartridge in its original packing
material, or store it so that it is not exposed to light.
●
If possible, use the original shipping container and packing material. Shipping damage
as a result of inadequate packing is your responsibility. If you have already disposed of
the printer's packing material, contact a local mailing service for information on
repacking the printer.
●
Hewlett-Packard recommends that you insure the equipment for shipment.
