Additional setup information
This section provides assistance in resolving installation and configuration issues,
setting fax header information using the front panel, and adding and removing software.
The standard installation instructions are provided in your Setup Poster. Retain the
poster in case you need to refer to it at a later time.
For comprehensive information, see the fully searchable Onscreen Guide. To access the
guide, go to the Director, click Help, and choose Onscreen Guide.
Microsoft’s plug-and-play messages do not appear
If you installed the HP OfficeJet software first as requested on the Setup Poster and you
are a Windows 95/98/2000 user, a series of Microsoft New Hardware Found messages
should have appeared on your screen during software installation. This series of
messages would have ended with the following Congratulations message; if you are a
Windows NT 4.0 user, only this last message should have appeared.
If the Congratulations message did not appear, try the following:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Make sure that only one cable, parallel or USB, is in use.
If you are using a parallel cable, verify that it is the IEEE 1284 A-C cable that came
with your unit.
If you are using a USB cable with Windows 98 or 2000, verify that the cable is highspeed (12 Mbps) and does not exceed five meters in length, and verify that the PC
is USB-ready. For more information about determining whether your PC is USBready, see your PC’s documentation or check with the PC’s manufacturer.
Verify that the cable is securely connected to your HP OfficeJet and directly
connected to the applicable port of your PC. After the cable is connected properly,
turn your HP OfficeJet off and then on again.
Turn your HP OfficeJet off and then on again, and then restart your PC.
If the previous steps do not solve the problem, remove and reinstall the software.

best results, adjust the paper settings each time you change paper types. For more
information, see “Set the paper type.”
HP papers
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
HP Premium Inkjet Paper: Locate the gray arrow on the nonprinting side of the
paper, and insert paper with the arrow side facing up.
HP Premium Photo Paper: Load the glossy (print) side down. Always load at least
five sheets in the input tray. You can place the photo-paper sheets on top of plain
paper in the input tray.
HP Premium Plus Photo Paper: Always load at least five sheets in the input tray. You
can place the photo-paper sheets on top of plain paper in the input tray.
HP Premium or Premium Rapid-Dry Inkjet Transparency Film: Insert the film so
that the white transparency strip, with arrows and the HP logo, is on top and is
going into the tray first.
HP Iron-On T-Shirt Transfers: Flatten the transfer sheet completely before using it;
do not load curled sheets. (To prevent curling, keep transfer sheets sealed in the
original package until just before using.) Manually feed one sheet at a time, with the
unprinted side facing down (the blue stripe faces up).
HP Greeting Card, Glossy Greeting Card, or Textured Greeting Card Paper: Insert a
small stack of HP Greeting Card Paper with the print-side down into the input tray
until it stops.
HP Restickable Inkjet Stickers: Place the sheets in the input tray, print-side (stickerside) down.
Legal-size paper
Even though the paper-length adjuster is fully extended, make sure that the input tray
itself is pushed all the way in.
Labels (only works with printing)
•
•
•
Always use letter- or A4-size label sheets designed for use with HP inkjet products
(like Avery Inkjet Labels), and make sure that the labels are not over two years old.
Fan the stack of labels to make sure none of the pages is sticking together.
Place a stack of label sheets on top of standard paper in the input tray, print-side
down. Do not insert labels one sheet at a time.
Postcards (only works with printing)
Insert a stack of postcards with the print-side down into the input tray until it stops. Line
the postcards up on the right side of the input tray, slide the width adjuster up against
the left side of the cards, and slide the length adjuster in until it stops.

Regulatory information
The following sections describe product requirements from various regulatory agencies.
Notice to users of the U.S. telephone network: FCC requirements
This equipment complies with FCC rules, Part 68. On this equipment is a label that contains, among other
information, the FCC Registration Number and Ringer Equivalent Number (REN) for this equipment. If requested,
provide this information to your telephone company.
An FCC compliant telephone cord and modular plug is provided with this equipment. This equipment is designed
to be connected to the telephone network or premises wiring using a compatible modular jack which is Part 68
compliant. This equipment connects to the telephone network through the following standard network interface
jack: USOC RJ-11C.
The REN is useful to determine the quantity of devices you may connect to your telephone line and still have all
of those devices ring when your number is called. Too many devices on one line may result in failure to ring in
response to an incoming call. In most, but not all, areas the sum of the RENs of all devices should not exceed five
(5). To be certain of the number of devices you may connect to your line, as determined by the REN, you should
call your local telephone company to determine the maximum REN for your calling area.
If this equipment causes harm to the telephone network, your telephone company may discontinue your service
temporarily. If possible, they will notify you in advance. If advance notice is not practical, you will be notified as
soon as possible. You will also be advised of your right to file a complaint with the FCC. Your telephone company
may make changes in its facilities, equipment, operations, or procedures that could affect the proper operation of
your equipment. If they do, you will be given advance notice so you will have the opportunity to maintain
uninterrupted service.
If you experience trouble with this equipment, please contact the manufacturer, or look elsewhere in this manual,
for warranty or repair information. Your telephone company may ask you to disconnect this equipment from the
network until the problem has been corrected or until you are sure that the equipment is not malfunctioning.
This equipment may not be used on coin service provided by the telephone company. Connection to party lines
is subject to state tariffs. Contact your state's public utility commission, public service commission, or
corporation commission for more information.
This equipment includes automatic dialing capability. When programming and/or making test calls to emergency
numbers:
• Remain on the line and explain to the dispatcher the reason for the call.
• Perform such activities in the off-peak hours, such as early morning or late evening.
NOTICE: The FCC hearing aid compatibility rules for telephones are not applicable to this equipment.
The Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991 makes it unlawful for any person to use a computer or other
electronic device, including fax machines, to send any message unless such message clearly contains in a margin
at the top or bottom of each transmitted page or on the first page of transmission, the date and time it is sent and
Chapter 11—Technical information

an identification of the business, other entity, or other individual sending the message and the telephone number
of the sending machine or such business, other entity, or individual. (The telephone number provided may not be
a 900 number or any other number for which charges exceed local or long-distance transmission charges.) In
order to program this information into your fax machine, you should complete the steps described in the software.
Regulatory notices
The following sections are statements from various regulatory agencies.

against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio
frequency energy, and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful
interference to radio communications. However, there is not guarantee that interference will not occur in a
particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which
can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference
by one or more of the following measures:
•
•
•
•
Reorient the receiving antenna.
Increase the separate between the equipment and the receiver.
Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.
Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.

The user may find the following booklet prepared by the Federal Communications Commission helpful: How to
Identify and Resolve Radio-TV Interference Problems. This booklet is available from the U.S. Government
Printing Office, Washington DC, 20402. Stock No. 004-000-00345-4.
CAUTION
Pursuant to Part 15.21 of the FCC Rules, any changes or modifications to this equipment not expressly
approved by the Hewlett-Packard Company, may cause harmful interference and void the FCC
authorization to operate this equipment.
DOC statement (Canada)
Le present appareil numerique n’emet pas de bruitis radioelectriques depassant les limits applicables aux
appareils numeriques de la class B prescrites dans le Reglement sur le brouillage radioelectrique edicte par le
ministere des Communications du Canada.
This digital apparatus does not exceed the Class B limits for radio noise emissions from digital apparatus set out
in the Radio Interference Regulations of the Canadian Department of Communications.
Notice to users of the Canadian telephone network
The Industry Canada label identifies certified equipment. This certification means that the equipment meets
certain telecommunications network protective, operational and safety requirements as prescribed in the
appropriate Terminal Equipment Technical Requirements document(s). The Department does not guarantee the
equipment will operate to the user's satisfaction.
Before installing this equipment, users should ensure that it is permissible to be connected to the facilities of the
local telecommunications company. The equipment must also be installed using an acceptable method of
connection. The customer should be aware that compliance with the above conditions may not prevent
degradation of service in some situations.
Repairs to certified equipment should be coordinated by a representative designated by the supplier. Any repairs
or alterations made by the user to this equipment, or equipment malfunctions, may give the telecommunications
company cause to request the user to disconnect the equipment.
Users should ensure for their own protection that the electrical ground connections of the power utility,
telephone lines and internal metallic water pipe system, if present, are connected together. This precaution may
be particularly important in rural areas.

This equipment has been approved in accordance with Council Directive 98/482/EC for Pan-European singleterminal connection to the public-switched telephone net-work (PSTN). However, due to differences between the
individual PSTNs provided in different countries, the approval does not, of itself, give an unconditional assurance
of successful operation on every PSTN network termination point.
In the event of problems, you should contact your equipment supplier in the first instance.
Network compatibility Declaration of Conformity
This equipment is designed to work with telephone net-works in all European Union countries plus Switzerland
and Norway. Network compatibility depends on customer selected settings, which must be reset to use the
