Inserting print cartridges
HP provides different types of print cartridges so you can choose the best cartridge for
your project. The cartridge numbers you can use with this printer vary by country/
region and appear on the back cover of this printed guide.
HP Vivera Inks deliver true-to-life photo quality and exceptional fade resistance
resulting in vivid colors that last. HP Vivera Inks are specially-formulated and
scientifically tested for quality, purity and fade resistance.
For optimum printing results, HP recommends using only genuine HP print cartridges.
Genuine HP print cartridges are designed and tested with HP printers to help you
easily produce great results, time after time.

Inserting memory cards
After you have taken pictures with a digital camera, you can remove the memory card
from the camera and insert it into the printer to view and print your photos. The printer
can read the following types of memory cards: CompactFlash™, Microdrive, Memory
Sticks, MultiMediaCard™, Secure Digital™, and xD-Picture Card™.
Caution Using any other type of memory card may damage the memory card
and the printer.
To learn about other ways of transferring photos from a digital camera to the printer,
see Getting connected.
Supported file formats
The printer can recognize and print the following file formats directly from a memory
card: JPEG, uncompressed TIFF, Motion JPEG AVI, Motion-JPEG QuickTime, and
MPEG-1. If your digital camera saves photos and video clips in other file formats,
save the files to your computer and print them using a software application. For more
information, see the onscreen Printer Help.
Inserting a memory card
Find your memory card in the following table and use the instructions to insert the
card into the printer.
Guidelines:
●
●
Insert only one memory card at a time.
Gently push the memory card into the printer until it stops. The memory card
does not insert all the way into the printer; do not try to force it.
Caution 1 Inserting the memory card any other way may damage the card
and the printer.
When the memory card is inserted correctly, the Memory Card light flashes
and then remains solid green.
Caution 2 Do not pull out a memory card while the Memory Card light is
flashing. For more information, see Removing a memory card.
The printer reads the memory card, prompts you to save any new photos on the
internal printer hard drive, and then displays the photos in folders and albums. If you
used your digital camera to select photos on the card, the printer asks you if you want
to print the camera-selected photos.

Removing a memory card

Removing a memory card while it is being accessed may damage the printer
and the memory card or corrupt the information on the memory card.

Select Clean cartridge, then press OK.
Following the directions on the printer screen, load paper so the printer can print
a test page after cleaning the cartridge. Use plain paper or index cards to
conserve photo paper.
Press OK to begin cleaning the print cartridge.
When the printer finishes cleaning the cartridge and prints a test page, it asks
whether you want to Continue to second level cleaning. Check the test page
and select from the following options:
– If the test page has white streaks or missing colors, the print cartridge needs
to be cleaned again. Select Yes, then press OK.
– If the print quality of the test page looks good, select No, then press OK.
You can clean the cartridge up to three times. Each successive cleaning is more
thorough and uses more ink.
If you complete all three levels of cleaning using this procedure and you still notice
white streaks or missing colors on the test page, you may need to replace the cartridge.
Note If the cartridge or printer has been recently dropped, you may also see
white streaks or missing colors in your prints. This problem is temporary and
clears up within 24 hours.
Printing a test page
Print a test page before contacting HP Customer Care. The test page contains
diagnostic information you can use when working with HP Customer Care to solve
printing problems. Look at the ink nozzle pattern on the test page to check the ink
level and condition of the print cartridge. If any line or color is missing from the
pattern, try cleaning the print cartridge. For more information, see Automatically

Storing the printer and print cartridges
Protect the printer and print cartridges by storing them properly when you are not
using them.
Storing the printer
The printer is built to withstand long or short periods of inactivity.
●
●
●
Close the In and Out tray doors and push the printer screen down into the flat
position when the printer is not in use.
Store the printer indoors out of direct sunlight in a place without temperature
extremes.
If the printer and print cartridge have not been used for one month or more, clean
the print cartridge before printing. For more information, see Automatically
cleaning the print cartridge.
Storing the print cartridge
When you store or transport the printer, always leave the active print cartridge inside
the printer. The printer stores the print cartridge in a protective cap during the powerdown cycle.
Caution Make sure the printer completes its power-down cycle before you
unplug the power cord or remove the internal battery. This allows the printer to
store the print cartridge properly.
Follow these tips to help maintain HP print cartridges and ensure consistent print
quality:
●

When you remove a print cartridge from the printer, store it in a print cartridge
protector to prevent the ink from drying out.
HP Photosmart 470 series
●
●
In some countries/regions the cartridge protector is not included with the printer,
but comes with the HP Gray Photo cartridge that can be purchased separately. In
other countries/regions, the protector might be included with the printer.
Keep all unused print cartridges in their original sealed packages until they are
needed. Store print cartridges at room temperature (15–35° C or 59–95° F).
Do not remove the plastic tape covering the ink nozzles until you are ready to
install the print cartridge in the printer. If the plastic tape has been removed from
the print cartridge, do not attempt to reattach it. Reattaching the tape damages
the print cartridge.
Maintaining the quality of photo paper
For best results with photo paper, follow the guidelines in this section.
Storing photo paper
●
●
●
Store the photo paper in its original packaging or in a resealable plastic bag.
Store the packaged photo paper on a flat, cool, and dry surface.
Return unused photo paper to the plastic bag. Paper left in the printer or exposed
to the elements may curl.
Handling photo paper
●
●
Always hold photo paper by the edges to avoid fingerprints.
If the photo paper has curled edges, place it in its plastic storage bag and gently
bend it in the opposite direction of the curl until the paper lies flat.

Bluetooth printing problems
Before contacting HP Customer Care, read this section for troubleshooting tips, or go
to the online support services at www.hp.com/support. Be sure to also read the
documentation that came with your HP Bluetooth wireless printer adapter and your
device with Bluetooth wireless technology.
My Bluetooth device cannot find the printer.
Solution
● Make sure the HP Bluetooth wireless printer adapter is plugged into the
camera port on the front of the printer. The light on the adapter flashes when
the adapter is ready to receive data.
● Bluetooth Visibility may be set to Not visible. Change this setting to Visible
to all as follows:
– Press Menu to display the printer menu.
– Select Bluetooth, then press OK.

Bluetooth Security level may be set to High. Change this setting to Low as
follows:
– Press Menu to display the printer menu.
– Select Bluetooth, then press OK.
– Select Security level, then press OK.
– Select Low, then press OK.
The Passkey (PIN) that the device with Bluetooth wireless technology is
using for the printer may be incorrect. Make sure the correct Passkey for the
printer is entered in the device with Bluetooth wireless technology.
You may be too far from the printer. Move the device with Bluetooth wireless
technology closer to the printer. The maximum recommended distance
between the device with Bluetooth wireless technology and the printer is
10 meters (30 feet).
No page came out of the printer.
Solution The printer may not recognize the type of file sent by the device with
Bluetooth wireless technology. For a list of the file formats that the printer
supports, see Specifications.
Print quality is poor.
Solution The photo you printed may be low resolution. For better results in the
future, set the digital camera to a higher resolution. Be aware that photos taken
with VGA-resolution cameras, such as those found in wireless phones, may not
have high enough resolution to produce a high-quality print.
The photo printed with borders.
Solution The printing application installed on your device with Bluetooth
wireless technology may not support borderless printing. Contact the vendor of
the device, or go to their support website to obtain the latest updates for the
printing application.
My computer cannot set the device name using the Bluetooth wireless
connection.
Solution Use a USB cable to connect your computer to the printer in order to
set the printer Bluetooth device name using the printer Toolbox. The printer
software must already be installed on the computer. See Installing the software
and the onscreen Printer Help.

Error messages
Before contacting HP Customer Care, read this section for troubleshooting tips or go
to the online support services at www.hp.com/support.
The following error messages may appear on the printer screen. Follow the
instructions to resolve the problem.
Error message: Paper jam. Clear jam then press OK.
Solution To clear a paper jam, try the following:
● If the paper came part way through the front of the printer, gently pull the
paper towards you to remove it.
● If the paper did not come part way through the front of the printer, try
removing it from the back of the printer:
– Remove the paper from the In tray, then pull down on the In tray to open
it fully to a horizontal position.
– Gently pull the jammed paper to remove it from the back of the printer.
– Lift the In tray up until it snaps back into paper-loading position.
● If you cannot grasp the edge of the jammed paper to remove it, try the
following:
– Turn off the printer.
– If the optional HP Photosmart Internal Battery is not installed in the
printer, unplug the printer power cord. Wait about 10 seconds, then plug
the power cord back in.
– Turn on the printer. The printer checks for paper in the paper path and
will automatically eject the jammed paper.
● Press OK to continue.
Error message: Automatic paper sensor failed.
Solution The automatic paper sensor is obstructed or damaged. Try moving
the printer out of direct sunlight, then press OK and try printing again. If this does
not work, go to www.hp.com/support or contact HP Customer Care.
Error message: Cartridge is not compatible. Use appropriate HP cartridge.
Solution Replace the print cartridge with one that is compatible with the printer.
For more information, see Inserting print cartridges.
Error message: Print cartridge cradle is stuck. Clear jam then press OK.
Solution Follow these steps to clear any obstruction in the path of the print
cartridge cradle:
1. Open the print cartridge door.
2. Clear any obstruction in the cradle path.
3. Close the print cartridge door, then press OK to continue.
HP Photosmart 470 series User's Guide

Chapter 6
Error message: Cartridge service station is stuck.
Solution The print cartridge service station is the component located beneath
the print cartridge cradle that wipes and caps the print cartridge for storage.
Follow these steps to clear the obstruction blocking the print cartridge service
station:
1. Open the print cartridge door.
2. Gently push the print cartridge and print cartridge cradle to the left to access
the print cartridge service station.
3. Remove any obstruction.
4. Close the print cartridge door, then press OK to continue.
Error message: Photo is corrupted
Cause While the printer was printing from a memory card, either another
memory card was inserted or a USB device was connected to the front camera
port.
Solution Insert only one memory card at a time. Do not insert a USB device
while the printer is printing from a memory card. Your photo is not corrupted.
Cause
The indicated photo is corrupted on the inserted memory card.
Solution
Select and print a different photo, or insert a different memory card.
Error message: Card access error. See user manual.
Cause A card access error may indicate that an xD-Picture Card memory card
is in a write-protected condition. xD-Picture Card memory cards have a special
protection feature to ensure that your pictures are kept safe.
Note During this condition, you can still use the printer for printing and
saving photos from the xD-Picture Card to a secure location, such as the
computer hard drive.
Solution
● Reinsert the xD-Picture Card memory card into your camera and turn on the
camera. In most cases, the camera automatically makes the necessary
changes.
● Reformat the xD-Picture Card memory card. See the documentation that
came with your camera for instructions on reformatting the memory card.
Note that this process erases the pictures currently saved to your memory
card. To save these pictures, transfer them to the computer before
reformatting the memory card. Once you reformat the memory card, transfer
those photos back to the memory card using the computer.

HP printer limited warranty statement
HP product
Duration of limited warranty
Software
90 days
Print cartridges

on the cartridge has been reached, whichever occurs first. This
warranty does not cover HP ink products that have been refilled,
remanufactured, refurbished, misused, or tampered with.
Accessories
1 year
Printer peripheral hardware (see the following for details) 1 year
A. Extent of limited warranty
1. Hewlett-Packard (HP) warrants to the end-user customer that the HP products specified above will be free from
defects in materials and workmanship for the duration specified above, which duration begins on the date of purchase
by the customer.
2. For software products, HP's limited warranty applies only to a failure to execute programming instructions. HP does
not warrant that the operation of any product will be uninterrupted or error free.
3. HP's limited warranty covers only those defects that arise as a result of normal use of the product, and does not cover
any other problems, including those that arise as a result of:
a. Improper maintenance or modification;
b. Software, media, parts, or supplies not provided or supported by HP;
c. Operation outside the product's specifications;
d. Unauthorized modification or misuse.
4. For HP printer products, the use of a non-HP ink cartridge or a refilled ink cartridge does not affect either the warranty
to the customer or any HP support contract with the customer. However, if printer failure or damage is attributable to
the use of a non-HP or refilled ink cartridge, HP will charge its standard time and materials charges to service the
printer for the particular failure or damage.
5. If HP receives, during the applicable warranty period, notice of a defect in any product which is covered by HP's
warranty, HP shall either repair or replace the product, at HP's option.
6. If HP is unable to repair or replace, as applicable, a defective product which is covered by HP's warranty, HP shall,
within a reasonable time after being notified of the defect, refund the purchase price for the product.
7. HP shall have no obligation to repair, replace, or refund until the customer returns the defective product to HP.
8. Any replacement product may be either new or like-new, provided that it has functionality at least equal to that of the
product being replaced.
9. HP products may contain remanufactured parts, components, or materials equivalent to new in performance.
10. HP's Limited Warranty Statement is valid in any country where the covered HP product is distributed by HP. Contracts
for additional warranty services, such as on-site service, may be available from any authorized HP service facility in
countries where the product is distributed by HP or by an authorized importer.
B. Limitations of warranty
TO THE EXTENT ALLOWED BY LOCAL LAW, NEITHER HP NOR ITS THIRD PARTY SUPPLIERS MAKES ANY
OTHER WARRANTY OR CONDITION OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR
CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY, SATISFACTORY QUALITY, AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
PURPOSE.
C. Limitations of liability
1. To the extent allowed by local law, the remedies provided in this Warranty Statement are the customer's sole and
exclusive remedies.
2. TO THE EXTENT ALLOWED BY LOCAL LAW, EXCEPT FOR THE OBLIGATIONS SPECIFICALLY SET FORTH IN
THIS WARRANTY STATEMENT, IN NO EVENT SHALL HP OR ITS THIRD PARTY SUPPLIERS BE LIABLE FOR
DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, WHETHER BASED ON
CONTRACT, TORT, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY AND WHETHER ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF
SUCH DAMAGES.
D. Local law
1. This Warranty Statement gives the customer specific legal rights. The customer may also have other rights which vary
from state to state in the United States, from province to province in Canada, and from country to country elsewhere
in the world.
2. To the extent that this Warranty Statement is inconsistent with local law, this Warranty Statement shall be deemed
modified to be consistent with such local law. Under such local law, certain disclaimers and limitations of this Warranty
Statement may not apply to the customer. For example, some states in the United States, as well as some
governments outside the United States (including provinces in Canada), may:
a. Preclude the disclaimers and limitations in this Warranty Statement from limiting the statutory rights of a consumer
(e.g., the United Kingdom);
b. Otherwise restrict the ability of a manufacturer to enforce such disclaimers or limitations; or
c. Grant the customer additional warranty rights, specify the duration of implied warranties which the manufacturer
cannot disclaim, or allow limitations on the duration of implied warranties.
3. THE TERMS IN THIS WARRANTY STATEMENT, EXCEPT TO THE EXTENT LAWFULLY PERMITTED, DO NOT
EXCLUDE, RESTRICT, OR MODIFY, AND ARE IN ADDITION TO, THE MANDATORY STATUTORY RIGHTS
APPLICABLE TO THE SALE OF THE HP PRODUCTS TO SUCH CUSTOMERS.
HP Limited Warranty
Dear Customer,
You will find below the name and address of the HP entity responsible for the performance of the HP Limited Warranty in your
country.
