Load paper and print media
Tray 1
Tray 1 holds up to 150 pages of 75 g/m2 (20 lb) paper, or fewer pages of heavier media (15 mm (0.6 in)).
Load media with the top forward and the side to be printed on facing down.
Media guides ensure that the media feeds correctly into the product and that the print is not skewed.
Tray 1 has 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.
NOTE: 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. Do not fan the media. This reduces jams by preventing multiple
sheets of media from feeding through the product at one time.

Manage color
Manage color by changing the settings on the Color tab in the printer driver.
Automatic
Setting color options to Automatic typically produces the best possible print quality for color documents.
The Automatic color adjustment option optimizes the neutral-gray color treatment, halftones, and edge
enhancements for each element in a document. For more information, see your printer driver online
Help.
NOTE:
Automatic is the default setting and is recommended for printing all color documents.
Print in Grayscale
Select the Print in Grayscale option from the printer driver to print a color document in black and white.
This option is useful for printing color documents that will be photocopied or faxed.
When Print in Grayscale is selected, the product uses the monochrome mode, which reduces use of
the color cartridges.
Manual color adjustment
Use the Manual color adjustment option to adjust the neutral-gray color treatment, halftones, and edge
enhancements for text, graphics, and photographs. To gain access to the manual color options, from
the Color tab, select Manual, and then select Settings.
Manual color options
Use manual color options to adjust the Neutral Grays, Halftone, and Edge Control options for text,
graphics, and photographs.

Halftone
●
Smooth provides better results for large, solid-filled print areas
and enhances photographs by smoothing color gradations. Select
this option when uniform and smooth area fills are the top priority.
●
Detail is useful for text and graphics that require sharp distinctions
among lines or colors, or images that contain a pattern or a high
level of detail. Select this option when sharp edges and details are
the top priority.

Neutral Grays
●
The Neutral Grays setting determines the method for
creating gray colors used in text, graphics, and
photographs.
Black Only generates neutral colors (grays and black) by using
only black toner. This guarantees neutral colors without a color
cast. This setting is best for documents and grayscale viewgraphs.
●
4-Color generates neutral colors (grays and black) by combining
all four toner colors. This method produces smoother gradients
and transitions to other colors, and it produces the darkest black.
Edge Control
●
Maximum is the most aggressive trapping setting. Adaptive
halftoning is on.
●
Normal sets trapping at a medium level. Adaptive halftoning is on.
●
Light sets trapping at a minimal level, Adaptive halftoning is on.
●
Off turns off both trapping and adaptive halftoning.
The Edge Control setting determines how edges are
rendered. Edge control has two components:
adaptive halftoning and trapping. Adaptive halftoning
increases edge sharpness. Trapping reduces the
effect of color-plane misregistration by overlapping
the edges of adjacent objects slightly.

RGB Color
●
Default (sRGB) instructs the product to interpret RGB color as
sRGB. The sRGB standard is the accepted standard of Microsoft
and the World Wide Web Consortium (http://www.w3.org).
●
Vivid instructs the product to increase the color saturation in the
midtones. Less colorful objects are rendered more colorfully. This
setting is recommended for printing business graphics.
●
Photo interprets RGB color as if it were printed as a photograph
using a digital mini-lab. It renders deeper, more saturated colors
differently than Default (sRGB) mode. Use this setting for printing
photos.
●
Photo (AdobeRGB 1998) is for digital photos that use the
AdobeRGB color space rather than sRGB. When printing from a
professional software program that uses AdobeRGB, it is
important to turn off the color management in the software program
and allow the product to manage the color space.
●
None sets the printer to print RGB data in raw device mode. To
render photographs correctly when this option is selected, you
must manage color in the program in which you are working or in
the operating system.

Match colors
For most users, the best method for matching colors is to print sRGB colors.
The process of matching printer output color to your computer screen is complex, because printers and
computer monitors use different methods of producing color. Monitors display colors by using light pixels
that use an RGB (red, green, blue) color process, but printers print colors by using a CMYK (cyan,
magenta, yellow, and black) process.
Several factors can influence your ability to match printed colors to those on your monitor:
●
Print media
●
Printer colorants (inks or toners, for example)
●
Printing process (inkjet, press, or laser technology, for example)
●
Overhead lighting
●
Personal differences in perception of color
●
Software programs
●
Printer drivers
●
Computer operating systems
●
Monitors
●
Video cards and drivers
●
Operating environment (humidity, for example)
Keep these factors in mind when colors on your screen do not perfectly match your printed colors.
Match colors using the Microsoft Office Basic Colors palette

Advanced color use
The product provides automatic color features that generate excellent color results. Carefully designed
and tested color tables provide smooth, accurate color rendition of all printable colors.
The product also provides sophisticated tools for the experienced professional.
HP ColorSphere toner
HP designs the print system (printer, print cartridges, toner, and paper) to work together to optimize print
quality, product reliability, and user productivity. Original HP print cartridges contain HP ColorSphere
toner that is specifically matched to your printer so that it will produce a wide range of brilliant colors.
This helps you create professional looking documents that contain sharp, clear text and graphics and
realistic printed photos.
HP ColorSphere toner produces print-quality consistency and intensity you can depend on across a
wide range of papers That means you can produce documents that help you make the right impression.
Plus, HP professional-quality everyday and specialty papers (including a wide variety of HP media types
and weights) are designed for the way you work.
HP ImageREt 3600
ImageREt 3600 provides 3600 dots-per-inch (dpi) color laser-class quality through a multi-level printing
process. This process precisely controls color by combining up to four colors within a single dot and by
varying the amount of toner in a given area. ImageREt 3600 has been improved for this product. The
improvements offer trapping technologies, greater control over dot placement, and more precise control
of toner quality in a dot. These new technologies, coupled with HP's multi-level printing process, result
in a 600 x 600 dpi printer that provides 3600-dpi color laser-class quality with millions of smooth colors.
Media selection
For the best color and image quality, select the appropriate media type from the software printer menu
or from the printer driver.
Color options
Color options automatically provide optimal color output. These options use object tagging, which
provides optimal color and halftone settings for different objects (text, graphics, and photos) on a page.
The printer driver determines which objects appear on a page and uses halftone and color settings that
provide the best print quality for each object.
In the Windows environment, the Automatic and Manual color options are on the Color tab in the printer
driver.
Standard red-green-blue (sRGB)
Standard red-green-blue (sRGB) is a worldwide color standard that HP and Microsoft developed as a
common color language for monitors, input devices (scanners and digital cameras), and output devices
(printers and plotters). It is the default color space used for HP products, Microsoft operating systems,
the World Wide Web, and most office software. The sRGB standard represents the typical Windows
monitor and is the convergence standard for high-definition television.
NOTE: Factors such as the type of monitor you use and the room lighting can affect the appearance
of colors on your screen. For more information, see Match colors on page 88.
90
Chapter 10 Color for Windows
ENWW
The latest versions of Adobe PhotoShop®, CorelDRAW®, Microsoft Office, and many other programs
use sRGB to communicate color. Because it is the default color space in Microsoft operating systems,
sRGB has been adopted broadly. When programs and devices use sRGB to exchange color information,
typical users experience greatly improved color matching.
The sRGB standard improves your ability to match colors between the product, the computer monitor,
and other input devices automatically, and eliminates the need to become a color expert.

Scanner resolution and color
If you are printing a scanned image, and the quality is not what you expected, you might have selected
a resolution or color setting in the scanner software that does not match your needs. Resolution and
color affect the following features of scanned images:
●
Image clarity
●
Texture of gradations (smooth or rough)
●
Scan time
●
File size
Scanning resolution is measured in pixels per inch (ppi).
NOTE:
Scanning ppi levels are not interchangeable with printing dpi (dots per inch) levels.
Color, grayscale, and black and white define the number of colors possible. You can adjust the scanner
hardware resolution to up to 1200 ppi. The software can perform an enhanced resolution up to
19,200 ppi. You can set color and grayscale at 1 bit (black and white), or at 8 bit (256 levels of gray or
color) to 24 bit (true color).
The resolution and color guidelines table lists simple tips that you can follow to meet your scanning
needs.
NOTE: Setting the resolution and color to a high value can create large files that take up disk space
and slow the scanning process. Before setting the resolution and color, determine how you are going
to use the scanned image.
NOTE: The best resolution for color and grayscale images is achieved by scanning from the flatbed
scanner rather than from the automatic document feeder (ADF).

Receive fax settings
Set or change number of rings-to-answer
When the answer mode is set to Automatic, the product rings-to-answer setting determines the number
of times the telephone rings before the product answers an incoming call.
If the product is connected to a line that receives both fax and voice calls (a shared line) and that also
uses an answering machine, you might need to adjust the rings-to-answer setting. The number of ringsto-answer for the product must be greater than the rings-to-answer on the answering machine. This
allows the answering machine to answer the incoming call and record a message if it is a voice call.
When the answering machine answers the call, the product listens to the call and automatically answers
it if it detects fax tones.
The default setting for rings-to-answer is five for the U.S. and Canada, and two for other countries/
regions.
Use the rings-to-answer setting
Use the following table to determine the number of rings-to-answer to use.
Type of telephone line
Recommended rings-to-answer setting
Dedicated fax line (receiving only fax calls)
Set to a number of rings within the range shown on the controlpanel display. (The minimum and maximum number of rings
allowed varies by country/region.)

One or two rings. (If you have an answering machine or
computer voicemail for the other telephone number, make sure
that the product is set to a greater number of rings than the
answering system. Also, use the distinctive-ring feature to
differentiate between voice and fax calls. See Set up distinctive
ring on page 122.)

Set the answer mode
Depending on the situation, set the product answer mode to Automatic or Manual. The factory-set
default is Automatic.
●
Automatic: In this answer mode, the product answers incoming calls after a specified number of
rings or upon recognition of special fax tones. To specify the number of rings, see Set the number
of rings-to-answer on page 120.
●
TAM: In this answer mode, the product has a telephone answering machine (TAM) attached to the
line-out port. The product does not answer incoming calls, but listens for fax call tones after the
TAM has answered the call.
●
Fax/Tel: In this answer mode, the product answers an incoming call and determines if the call is
a voice call or fax call. If the call is a fax call, the product receives the fax from the call. If the call
is a voice call, the product generates an audible ring to indicate an incoming voice call that you
must answer on an extension phone.
●
Manual: In this answer mode, the product never answers calls. You must start the fax-receiving
process yourself, either by pressing Start Fax on the control panel or by picking up a telephone
that is connected to that line and dialing 1-2-3.

You can set your product to forward incoming faxes to another fax number. When the fax arrives at your
product, it is stored in the memory. The product then dials the fax number that you have specified and
sends the fax. If the product cannot forward a fax because of an error (for example, the number is busy)
and repeated redial attempts are unsuccessful, your product prints the fax.
If the product runs out of memory while receiving a fax, it terminates the incoming fax and only forwards
the pages and partial pages that have been stored in the memory.
When it is using the fax-forwarding feature, the answer mode must be set to Automatic.

Set up distinctive ring
Ring-pattern or distinctive-ring service is available through some local telephone companies. The
service allows you to have more than one telephone number on a single line. Each telephone number
has a unique ring pattern, so that you can answer voice calls and the product can answer fax calls.
If you subscribe to a ring-pattern service with a telephone company, you must set the product to answer
the correct ring pattern. Not all countries/regions support unique ring patterns. Contact the telephone
company to determine if this service is available in your country/region.
NOTE: If you do not have ring-pattern service and you change the ring-pattern settings to something
other than the default, All Rings, the product might not be able to receive faxes.
The settings are as follows:
●
All Rings: The product answers any calls that come through the telephone line.
●
Single: The product answers any calls that produce a single-ring pattern.
●
Double: The product answers any calls that produce a double-ring pattern.
●
Triple: The product answers any calls that produce a triple-ring pattern.
●
Double and Triple: The product answers any calls that produce a double-ring or triple-ring pattern.
To change ring patterns for call answering, complete the following steps:

ring-pattern service is working correctly.
Use autoreduction for incoming faxes
If the fit-to-page option is turned on, the product automatically reduces long faxes up to 75% to fit the
information on the default paper size (for example, the fax is reduced from legal to letter size).
If the fit-to-page option is turned off, long faxes print at full size on multiple pages. The factory-set default
for incoming fax autoreduction is On.
If you have the stamp-received faxes option turned on, you might also want to turn on autoreduction.
This reduces the size of the incoming faxes slightly, and prevents the page-stamp from forcing a fax
onto two pages.

Use fax on a DSL, PBX, ISDN, or VoIP system
HP products are designed specifically for use with traditional analog phone services. They are not
designed to work on DSL, PBX, ISDN lines, or VoIP services, but they might work with the proper setup
and equipment.
NOTE: HP recommends discussing DSL, PBX, ISDN, and VoIP setup options with the service
provider.
The HP LaserJet product is an analog device that is not compatible with all digital phone environments
(unless a digital-to-analog converter is used). HP does not guarantee that the product will be compatible
with digital environments or digital-to-analog converters.
DSL
A digital subscriber line (DSL) uses digital technology over standard copper telephone wires. This
product is not directly compatible with digital signals. However, if the configuration is specified during
DSL setup, the signal can be separated so that some of the bandwidth is used to transmit an analog
signal (for voice and fax) while the remaining bandwidth is used to transmit digital data.
NOTE: Not all fax products are compatible with DSL services. HP does not guarantee that the product
will be compatible with all DSL service lines or providers.
The DSL modem requires a high-pass filter for faxing. The service provider typically provides a low-pass
filter, for normal telephone wiring.
NOTE:
Contact the DSL provider for more information or for assistance.
126 Chapter 12 Fax (fax models only)
ENWW
PBX
The product is an analog device that is not compatible in all digital phone environments. Digital-to-analog
filters or converters may be needed for faxing functionality. If faxing issues occur in a PBX environment,
it might be necessary to contact the PBX provider for assistance. HP does not guarantee that the product
will be compatible with digital environments or digital-to-analog converters.
Contact the PBX provider for more information and for assistance.
ISDN
Contact the ISDN provider for more information and for assistance.
VoIP
Voice over internet protocol (VoIP) services are often not compatible with fax machines unless the
provider explicitly states that it supports fax over IP services.
If the product experiences problems getting a fax to work on a VoIP network, verify that all cables and
settings are correct. Decreasing the fax-speed setting might allow the product to send a fax over a VoIP
network.
If faxing problems continue, contact the VoIP provider.

Send a fax by dialing from a downstream phone
Occasionally, you might want to dial a fax number from a telephone that is connected to the same line
as the product. For example, if you are sending a fax to a person whose device is in the manual receive
mode, you can precede the fax with a voice call to let that person know that the fax is coming.
NOTE:
1.
The telephone must be connected to the product "telephone" port (
).
Load the document into the automatic document feeder (ADF) input tray.
NOTE: You cannot use the flatbed scanner when sending a fax by dialing from an extension
telephone.
2.
Pick up the handset of a telephone that is connected to the same line as the product. Dial the fax
number by using the telephone keypad.
3.
When the recipient answers, instruct the person to start the fax machine.
4.
When you hear the fax tones, press Start Fax, wait until Connecting appears on the control-panel
display, and then hang up the telephone or wait on the line until the fax is completed to resume
voice calling.
Send a delayed fax
Use the product control panel to schedule a fax to be sent automatically at a future time to one or more
people. When this procedure is completed, the product scans the document into memory and then
returns to the Ready state.
NOTE: If the product cannot transmit the fax at the scheduled time, that information is indicated on
the fax error report (if that option is turned on) or recorded in the fax activity log. The transmittal might
not be initiated because the fax-sending call is not answered, or because a busy signal stops the redial
attempts.
If a fax has been scheduled to be sent at a future time but it requires updating, send the additional
information as another job. All faxes that are scheduled to go to the same fax number at the same time
are delivered as individual faxes.

Embedded Web server
This product is equipped with an embedded Web server (EWS), which provides access to information
about product and network activities. A Web server provides an environment in which web programs
may run, much in the same way that an operating system, such as Windows, provides an environment
for programs to run on a computer. The output from these programs can then be displayed by a Web
browser, such as Microsoft Internet Explorer, Safari, or Netscape Navigator.
An “embedded” Web server resides on a hardware device (such as an HP LaserJet product) or in
firmware, rather than as software that is loaded on a network server.
The advantage of an EWS is that it provides an interface to the product that anyone with a networkconnected product and computer can use. There is no special software to install or configure, but you
must have a supported Web browser on the computer. To gain access to the EWS, type the IP address
for the product in the address line of the browser. (To find the IP address, print a configuration page.
For more information about printing a configuration page, see Information pages on page 158.)
NOTE: For Macintosh operating systems, you can use the EWS over a USB connection after installing
the Macintosh software included with the product.
Features
The EWS allows you to view product and network status and manage printing functions from a computer.
With the EWS, you can complete the following tasks:
●
View product status information
●
Determine the remaining life on all supplies and order new ones
●
View and change part of the product configuration
●
View and print some internal pages
●
Select the language in which to display the EWS pages and control panel messages
●
View and change network configuration
●
Set, change, or clear the product security password (see Turn on password protection from the
control panel on page 172).
●
Enable/disable the photo card slot on the product from the print tab
NOTE:

Changing network settings in the EWS might disable some of product software or features.

quality. Service or repairs required as a result of using a non-HP supply will not be covered under the
warranty.
HP fraud hotline
Call the HP fraud hotline if the product or HP ToolboxFX indicates that the print cartridge is not an

●
You are experiencing a large number of problems with the print cartridge.
●
The print cartridge does not look like it usually does (for example, the pull tab or the box is different).
In the United States, call toll-free: 1-877-219-3183.
Outside the United States, you can call collect. Dial the operator and ask to place a collect call to this
telephone number: 1-770-263-4745. If you do not speak English, a representative at the HP fraud hotline
who speaks your language will assist you. Or, if someone who speaks your language is not available,
a language line interpreter will connect approximately one minute after the beginning of the call. The
language line interpreter is a service that will translate between you and the representative for the HP
fraud hotline.

Change the resolution settings to the correct
settings for your job. See Scanner resolution

The software is set to scan in color.
The system default is color, which takes
longer to scan even when scanning a
monochrome original. If you acquire an
image through TWAIN or WIA, you can
change the settings so that the original
scans in grayscale or black-and-white. See
the product software Help for details.
A print job or copy job was sent before you
tried to scan.
If someone sent a print job or copy job before
you tried to scan, the scan will start if the
scanner is not busy. However, because the
product and scanner share memory, the
scan might be slower.
The scanning PC may not have enough
available resources.
Close unused applications on the PC. If the
scan is still too slow, try rebooting the
scanning PC.
Antivirus, antispyware, or firewall software
on the scanning PC may slow scanning.
Consult your antivirus, antispyware, or
firewall software documentation.

Scan-quality problems
Prevent scan-quality problems
The following are a few simple steps you can take to improve copy and scan quality.
●
Use the flatbed scanner, rather than the automatic document feeder (ADF) input tray, to scan.
●
Use high-quality originals.
●
Load the media correctly. If the media is loaded incorrectly, it might skew, which causes unclear
images. See Load paper and print media on page 58 for instructions.
●
Adjust the software settings according to how you plan to use the scanned page. See Scanner
resolution and color on page 100 for more information.
●
If your product frequently feeds more than one page at a time, the separation pad might need to
be replaced. Contact HP. See www.hp.com/support/CM1312series or the support flyer that came
in the product box.

Optimize and improve image quality
Print-quality checklist
General print-quality problems can be solved by using the following checklist:
1.
Make sure that the paper or print media that you are using meets specifications. See Paper and
print media on page 53. Generally, smoother paper provides better results.
2.
If you are using a special print media such as labels, transparencies, glossy, or letterhead, ensure
that you have printed by type.
3.
Print a configuration page and supplies status page at the product control panel. See Information
pages on page 158.
4.
◦
Check the supplies status page to see if any supplies are low or have reached their estimated
end of life. No information is provided for non-HP print cartridges.
◦
If the pages do not print correctly, the problem is with the hardware. Contact HP. See
www.hp.com/support/CM1312series or the support flyer that came in the product box.
Print a demo page from HP ToolboxFX. If the page prints, the problem is with the printer driver.
Try printing from another printer driver. For example, if you are using the PCL 6 printer driver, print
from the PS printer driver.
◦
Use the Add Printer Wizard in the Printers (or Printers and Faxes in Windows XP) dialog
box to install the PS driver.
5.
Try printing from a different program. If the page prints correctly, the problem is with the program
from which you were printing.
6.
Restart the computer and the product and try printing again. If the problem is not resolved, see
General print quality issues on page 202.
Manage and configure printer drivers
Print-quality settings affect how light or dark the print is on the page and the style in which the graphics
are printed. You can also use the print-quality settings to optimize the print quality for a specific media
type.
You can change the settings in the product properties to accommodate the types of jobs that you are
printing. The following settings are available, depending on the printer driver that you are using:
●
600 dpi
●
Custom: This setting produces the same resolution as the default setting, but you can change the
scale patterns.
NOTE:
Changing the resolution can change the formatting of your text.
Temporarily change print-quality settings
To change the print-quality settings only for the current software program, open the properties through
the Print Setup menu in the program that you are using to print.

Customer self repair warranty service
HP products are designed with many Customer Self Repair (CSR) parts to minimize repair time and
allow for greater flexibility in performing defective parts replacement. If during the diagnosis period, HP
identifies that the repair can be accomplished by the use of a CSR part, HP will ship that part directly to
you for replacement. There are two categories of CSR parts: 1) Parts for which customer self repair is
mandatory. If you request HP to replace these parts, you will be charged for the travel and labor costs
of this service. 2) Parts for which customer self repair is optional. These parts are also designed for
Customer Self Repair. If, however, you require that HP replace them for you, this may be done at no
additional charge under the type of warranty service designated for your product.
Based on availability and where geography permits, CSR parts will be shipped for next business day
delivery. Same-day or four-hour delivery may be offered at an additional charge where geography
permits. If assistance is required, you can call the HP Technical Support Center and a technician will
help you over the phone. HP specifies in the materials shipped with a replacement CSR part whether
a defective part must be returned to HP. In cases where it is required to return the defective part to HP,
you must ship the defective part back to HP within a defined period of time, normally five (5) business
days. The defective part must be returned with the associated documentation in the provided shipping
material. Failure to return the defective part may result in HP billing you for the replacement. With a
customer self repair, HP will pay all shipping and part return costs and determine the courier/carrier to
be used.

Country/region specific statements
Laser safety
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 device 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
device 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 may result in exposure to hazardous radiation.
