this light indicates that you need to check
the status of your print cartridges. “Print Cartridge Status” on page 26 for more
information.
Warning
Only use the Power Button on the front of the printer to turn the printer on
and off. Using a power strip, surge protector, or a wall-mounted switch to
turn the printer on and off may cause premature printer failure.

Using Your Printer
Basic Printer Maintenance
Because the printer ejects ink onto the paper in a fine mist, ink smudges will
eventually appear on the printer case. To remove smudges, stains, and/or dried
ink from the exterior of the printer, use a soft cloth moistened with water.
When cleaning your printer, keep these tips in mind:
• Do not clean the interior of the printer. Keep all fluids away from the interior.
• Do not use household cleaners or detergent. In the event that a household
cleaner or detergent is used on the printer, wipe the printer’s exterior surfaces
with a soft cloth moistened with water.
• Do not lubricate the rod on which the print cartridge cradle moves. Noise is
normal when the cradles move back and forth.
For information on cleaning print cartridges and the print cartridge cradle, see
“Cleaning Print Cartridges” on page 29.

2 Using Your Printer Software
Note: Before you can use your printer, you must have installed the printer
and printer software as described on the Quick Start Poster.
Choosing Your Printer
If you haven’t already selected your HP DeskJet as the default printer in the
Chooser, you should do so now. To select your printer using a USB connection:
1 Make sure the computer and printer are turned on, and your printer is
connected to your computer with a USB cable.
2 From the Apple menu, select Chooser.
3 In the left side of the Chooser window, click the DeskJet 800 Series (USB)
icon.
4 In the right side of the Chooser window, click DeskJet 840C.
5 Close the Chooser.
Other Ways to Select a Default Printer
Besides using the Chooser, you can also select a default printer in the following
ways:
• Select the desired printer by clicking on the menu bar printer icon at the top of
the screen, and choosing DeskJet 840C.
• If your control strip is on, then select the desired printer by clicking the printer
icon in the control strip, and choosing DeskJet 840C.
• Drag the document you want to print to the desktop icon of the printer you
want to use.
• Click the icon of the HP DeskJet printer you want to use, and choose Set
Default Printer from the Printing menu.
The Print command will send your documents to this printer until you select a
new default printer. If you switch printers, check your document before you
print it to see whether the formatting or pagination changed.

Using Your Printer Software
Desktop Printing
Desktop printing is useful when you have a number of documents to print at once,
or when you have a document that is already formatted for printing on a
particular printer. There are two methods to print documents from the desktop. To
perform desktop printing, either:
• Drag the icons of the documents you want to print to the desktop icon of the
printer you want to use.
OR
• Select the icons of the documents you want to print, then choose Print from the
File menu. When the Print dialog box appears, select your print options, then
click the Print button.
Checking Printer Status
You can tell the status of a printer by looking at its desktop icon:

Using Your Printer Software
Color
Your HP DeskJet 800C Series Printer uses HP’s Color Matching technology to
intelligently analyze each element on a page—text, graphics, and photographs—
and provide the best color output.
Choose:
• HP Color
Matching (default)
• ColorSync
• Grayscale (print in
shades of gray)
• Black & White (no
color)
Slide to adjust:
• Saturation
• Brightness
• Color Tone
HP Color Matching is the default Image setting on the Color panel. While you
can adjust saturation, brightness, and color tone with the sliders that appear when
you choose this option, the center position of the sliders is optimized for most
printing uses and types of media.
The ColorSync setting can be used for color matching with other components
using the ColorSync matching system.
Grayscale prints in shades of gray. With this setting, you also have the option to
optimize printing for fax and photocopy.
Black & White prints only in black and white (no color, no gray).

Using and Caring for Your Print Cartridges
Storing Print Cartridges
To maintain excellent print quality from your print cartridges:
• Keep all print cartridges in their sealed packages, at room temperature
(60-78˚ F or 15.6-26.6˚ C), until you are ready to use them.
• Once installed, leave the print cartridges in their cradle at all times to keep
them from drying out or becoming clogged.
• If you store an unsealed print cartridge, do so in an airtight plastic container.
• Do NOT unplug the printer until printing is complete and the print cartridge
cradles have returned to their home position on the right side of the printer. The
print cartridges will dry out if not stored in their home position.
Warning
Only use the Power Button on the front of the printer to turn the printer on
and off. Using a power strip, surge protector, or a wall-mounted outlet
switch to turn the printer on and off may cause premature failure.

are printing.
When you use nonstandard paper sizes
and select the Custom Paper Size setting
in the HP print settings box, the paper
width must be between 77 and 215 mm
(3 and 8.5 inches) and the paper length
must be between 77 and 356 mm (3 and 14

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. Customer is responsible for
maintaining proof of date of purchase.
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.
HP’s limited warranty covers only those defects which arise
as a result of normal use of the product, and do not apply
to any:
a. Improper or inadequate maintenance or modification;
b. Software, interfacing, media, parts, or supplies not provided or supported by HP; or
c. Operation outside the product’s specifications.
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.
If HP receives, during the applicable warranty period,
notice of a defect in any software, media, or ink cartridge
product which is covered by HP’s warranty, HP shall
replace the defective product. If HP receives, during the
applicable warranty period, notice of a defect in any
hardware product which is covered by HP’s warranty, HP
shall either repair or replace the defective product, at HP’s
option.
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.
HP shall have no obligation to repair, replace, or refund
until the customer returns the defective product to HP.
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.
HP’s limited warranty is valid in any country where the
covered HP product is distributed by HP except for the
Middle-East, Africa, Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Venezuela,
and France’s “Departements D’Outre-Mer”; for those
excepted areas, the warranty is valid only in the country of
purchase. Contracts for additional warranty services, such
as on-site service, may be available from any authorized
HP service facility where the product is distributed by HP or
by an authorized importer.
B. Limitations of Warranty
1.
TO THE EXTENT ALLOWED BY LOCAL LAW, NEITHER HP
NOR ITS THIRD PARTY SUPPLIERS MAKE ANY OTHER
WARRANTY OR CONDITION OF ANY KIND, WHETHER
EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WITH RESPECT TO THE HP
PRODUCTS, AND SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIM THE 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 not allow limitations on the duration
of implied warranties.
3. FOR CONSUMER TRANSACTIONS IN AUSTRALIA AND
NEW ZEALAND, 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 HP PRODUCTS TO
SUCH CUSTOMERS.
HP Year 2000 Warranty
Subject to all of the terms and limitations of the HP Limited
Warranty Statement stated above, HP warrants that this HP
Product will be able to accurately process date data (including,
but not limited to, calculating, comparing, and sequencing)

and the years 1999 and 2000, including leap year calculations,
when used in accordance with the Product documentation
provided by HP (including any instructions for installing
patches or upgrades), provided that all other products (e.g.

Environmental
Statement
Hewlett-Packard continuously improves the design
processes of HP DeskJet printers to minimize the negative
impact on the office environment and on the
communities where printers are manufactured, shipped,
and used. Hewlett-Packard has also developed processes
to minimize the negative impact of the disposal of the
printer at the end of printing life.
Reduction and Elimination
Product Longevity: To ensure the longevity of your
DeskJet Printer, HP provides the following:
•
•
•
Extended Warranty - HP SupportPack provides
coverage for the HP hardware and product and all HP
supplied internal components. HP SupportPack must
be purchased by the customer within 30 days of
purchase. Contact the nearest HP dealer about this
service.
Spare Parts and Consumables are available for five
years after production has stopped.
Product Take-back - To return this product and ink
cartridges to HP at the end of its useful life, call your
local HP Sales or Service Office for instructions.
Paper Use: The printer’s automatic/manual two-sided
Energy Consumption
printing capability reduces paper usage and the resulting
demands on natural resources. This printer is suited for
the use of recycled papers according to DIN 19 309.
This printer was designed with energy conservation in
mind. This printer averages 4 watts in stand-by mode. Not
only does this save natural resources, but it also saves
money without affecting the high performance of this
printer. This product qualifies for the ENERGY STAR
Program (U.S. and Japan). ENERGY STAR is a voluntary
program established to encourage the development of
energy-efficient office products. ENERGY STAR is a US
registered service mark of the US EPA. As an ENERGY
STAR partner, Hewlett-Packard Company has determined
that this product meets ENERGY STAR Guidelines for
energy efficiency.
Ozone: Ozone-depleting chemicals such as CFCs have
been eliminated from Hewlett-Packard manufacturing
processes.
Recycling
Design for recycling has been incorporated into this
printer. The number of materials has been kept to a
minimum while ensuring proper functionality and
reliability. Dissimilar materials have been designed to
separate easily. Fasteners and other connections are easy
to locate, access, and remove using common tools. High
priority parts have been designed to access quickly for
efficient disassembly and repair. Plastic parts have been
primarily designed in no more than two colors to
enhance recycling options. A few small parts are colored
specifically to highlight customer access points.
Printer Packaging: The packaging materials for this
printer have been selected to provide maximum
protection for the least cost possible, while attempting to
minimize environmental impact and facilitate recycling.
The rugged design of the HP DeskJet printer assists in
minimizing both packaging materials and damage rates.
Plastic parts: All major plastics and plastic parts are
marked according to international standards. All plastic
parts used in the printer housing and chassis are
technically recyclable and all use a single polymer.
Energy consumption in off-mode: When the
printer is off, a minimal amount of energy is still
being consumed. Energy consumption can be
prevented by turning the printer power off, then
disconnecting the end of the printer power cord
from the electrical source.
