HP EcoSolutions (HP and the Environment)
HP is committed to helping you optimize your environmental footprint and empowering
you to print responsibly—at home or in the office.
For more detailed information about environmental guidelines HP follows during the
manufacturing process, see Environmental product stewardship program. For more
information about HP's environmental initiatives, visit www.hp.com/ecosolutions.
Manage power
To conserve electricity, try the following:
•
•
•
Turn on the printer's Sleep Mode feature, and then select the option for the shortest
time. After the printer has been inactive for this period of time, the printer will go into
low-power mode. To configure this feature, touch
(eco button) on the printer’s
control panel display, touch Sleep, and then touch the desired option.
Use the printer's Schedule On and Off feature, and then select the days and time you
want the printer to turn on and turn off automatically. For example, you can schedule
the printer to turn on at 8am and turn off at 8pm from Monday to Friday. In this way,
you will save energy during the night and weekends. To configure this feature, touch
(eco button) on the printer's control panel display, touch Schedule On and
Off, and then set the time to turn on and off the printer.
Adjust the screen brightness to a dimmer setting. To configure this feature, touch
(eco button) on the printer's control panel display, touch Screen
Brightness, and then set the desired option.
NOTE: The printer's Sleep Mode and Schedule On and Off features are temporarily
not available if one or more of the ink cartridges are missing. After the cartridge is
reinstalled, these features resume.
CAUTION: HP recommends that you replace any missing cartridges as soon as
possible to avoid print quality issues and possible extra ink usage or damage to the
ink system. Never turn off the printer when ink cartridges are missing.
Optimize printing supplies
To optimize printing supplies such as ink and paper, try the following:
•
•
•
•
•
8
Recycle used original HP ink cartridges through HP Planet Partners. For more
information, visit www.hp.com/recycle.
Optimize paper usage by printing on both sides of the paper. If the printer has an HP
automatic two-sided printing accessory (duplexer), see Print on both sides
(duplexing).
Save ink and paper when printing web content with HP Smart Print. For more
information, visit www.hp.com/go/smartprint.
Change the print mode to a draft setting. The draft setting uses less ink.
Do not clean the printhead unnecessarily. This wastes ink and shortens the life of the
cartridges.

To connect a storage device
1. If you are connecting a digital camera, change the USB mode of the camera to storage
mode, and then connect one end of the USB cable to the camera.
NOTE: Different cameras use different terms to describe the storage mode. For
instance, some cameras have a digital camera setting and a disk drive setting. In
this instance, the disk drive setting is the storage mode setting. If storage mode
does not work on your camera, you might need to upgrade the camera firmware.
For more information, see the documentation that came with the camera.
2. Insert the USB storage device or the other end of the camera’s USB cable to the USB
port on the front of the printer.
NOTE: If your USB device does not fit into this port due to size limitations, or if the
connector on the device is shorter than 11 mm (0.43 in), you will need to purchase
a USB extension cable in order to use your device with this port. For more information

from Tray 2 (if it is installed and loaded with media). You can change this default behavior
by using the following features:
•
•
Tray Lock: Use this feature to protect special media such as letterhead or preprinted
media from accidental use. If the printer runs out of media while printing a document,
it will not use media from a locked tray to complete the print job.
Default Tray: Use this feature to determine the first tray from which the printer draws
media.
NOTE: To use the tray lock and default tray settings, you must select the automatic
tray selection option in the printer software. Also, if the printer is on a network and
you set a default tray, the setting will affect all users of the printer.

Work with ink cartridges
To ensure the best print quality from the printer, you need to perform some simple
maintenance procedures. This section provides guidelines for handling the ink cartridges,
instructions for replacing the ink cartridges, and aligning and cleaning the printhead.

Information on ink cartridges and the printhead
The following tips help maintain HP ink cartridges and ensure consistent print quality.
•
The instructions in this user guide are for replacing ink cartridges, and are not
intended for first time installation.
•
CAUTION: HP recommends that you replace any missing cartridges as soon as
possible to avoid print quality issues and possible extra ink usage or damage to
the ink system. Never turn off the printer when ink cartridges are missing.
•
•
Keep all ink cartridges in the original sealed packages until they are needed.
Be sure to turn off the printer properly. For more information, see Turn the printer
off.
Store ink cartridges at room temperature (15-35° C or 59-95° F).
Do not clean the printhead unnecessarily. This wastes ink and shortens the life of the
cartridges.
Handle ink cartridges carefully. Dropping, jarring, or rough handling during installation
can cause temporary printing problems.
If you are transporting the printer, do the following to prevent ink leaking from the
printer or other damage from occurring to the printer:
◦ Make sure you turn off the printer by pressing the
(Power button). Wait until
•
•
•
•
◦
◦
all sounds of internal motion stop before unplugging the printer. For more
information, see Turn the printer off.
Make sure you leave the ink cartridges and printhead installed.
The printer must be transported sitting flat; it should not be placed on its side,
back, front, or top.

Chapter 4
Check the estimated ink levels
You can check the estimated ink levels from the printer software or from the printer control
panel. For information about using these tools, see Printer management tools and Use
the printer control panel. You can also print the Printer Status page to view this information
(see Understand the Printer Status Report).
NOTE: Ink level alerts and indicators provide estimates for planning purposes only.
When you receive a low-ink alert, consider having a replacement cartridge available
to avoid possible printing delays. You do not have to replace the cartridges until you
are prompted to do so.
NOTE: If you have installed a refilled or remanufactured cartridge, or a cartridge that
has been used in another printer, the ink level indicator might be inaccurate or
unavailable.
NOTE: Ink from the cartridges is used in the printing process in a number of different
ways, including in the initialization process, which prepares the printer and cartridges
for printing, and in printhead servicing, which keeps print nozzles clear and ink flowing
smoothly. In addition, some residual ink is left in the cartridge after it is used. For more
information, see www.hp.com/go/inkusage.
Print when one or more ink cartridges are depleted
The printer can still operate when the black ink cartridge or one or more color ink
cartridges are depleted, but it will print more slowly. Also, the quality of printed documents
might be affected.
The printer will not be able to print when both the black cartridge and a color cartridge
are depleted.
•
•
If the black cartridge is depleted, any black color in printed documents is created using
a combination of the remaining colors. As a result, blacks might not appear to be as
dark.
If a color cartridge is depleted, the printer will print in grayscale using the black
cartridge.
When possible, replace any depleted ink cartridges. For information about how to install
new ink cartridges, see Replace the ink cartridges.
CAUTION: While ink cartridges are not damaged when left outside of the printer,
the printhead does need to have all cartridges installed at all times after the printer is
set up and in use. Leaving one or more cartridge slots empty for an extended period
may lead to print quality problems and possibly damage the printhead. If you have
recently left a cartridge out of the printer for an extended period, or if you have had a
recent paper jam, and have noticed poor print quality, clean the printhead. For more
information, see Clean the printhead.

NOTE: Not all cartridges are available in all countries/regions.
CAUTION: HP recommends that you replace any missing cartridges as soon as
possible to avoid print quality issues and possible extra ink usage or damage to the
ink system. Never turn off the printer when ink cartridges are missing.
Use these steps to replace the ink cartridges.
To replace the ink cartridges
1. Make sure the printer is turned on.
2. Open the ink cartridge access door.
NOTE: Wait until the print carriage stops moving before proceeding.
3. Press the front of the ink cartridge to release it, and then remove it from the slot.
4. Remove the new ink cartridge from its packaging.
5. Using the color-coded letters for help, slide the ink cartridge into the empty slot until
it is securely installed in the slot.
CAUTION: Do not lift the latch handle on the print carriage to install the ink
cartridges. Doing so could cause the printhead or ink cartridges to be incorrectly
seated, which can cause errors or print quality problems. The latch must remain
down in order to correctly install the ink cartridges.

Anonymous Usage Information Storage
The HP cartridges used with this printer contain a memory chip that assists in the
operation of the printer.
In addition, this memory chip stores a limited set of anonymous information about the
usage of the printer, which might include the following: the date when the cartridge was
first installed, the date when the cartridge was last used, the number of pages printed
using the cartridge, the page coverage, frequency of printing, the printing modes used,
any printing errors that might have occurred, and the printer model.
48
Work with ink cartridges
This information helps HP design future printers to meet our customers' printing needs.
The data collected from the cartridge memory chip does not contain information that can
be used to identify a customer or user of the cartridge or their printer.
HP collects a sampling of the memory chips from cartridges returned to HP's free return
and recycling program (HP Planet Partners: www.hp.com/hpinfo/globalcitizenship/
environment/recycle). The memory chips from this sampling are read and studied in order
to improve future HP printers. HP partners who assist in recycling this cartridge might
have access to this data, as well.
Any third party possessing the cartridge might have access to the anonymous information
on the memory chip. If you prefer to not allow access to this information, you can render
the chip inoperable. However, after you render the memory chip inoperable, the cartridge
cannot be used in an HP printer.
If you are concerned about providing this anonymous information, you can make this
information inaccessible by turning off the memory chip's ability to collect the printer's
usage information:
To disable the usage information function
1. On the printer control panel, touch (right arrow), and then touch Setup.
2. Select Preferences, and then select Cartridge Chip Information.
3. Touch OK to turn off usage information collection.
NOTE: To re-enable the usage information function, restore the factory defaults.
NOTE: You can continue to use the cartridge in the HP printer if you turn off the
memory chip's ability to collect the printer's usage information.

Try the following solutions if the printer is printing very slowly.
•
•
•
Solution 1: Use a lower print quality setting
Solution 2: Check the ink levels
Solution 3: Contact HP support
Solution 1: Use a lower print quality setting
Solution: Check the print quality setting. Best and Maximum dpi provide the best
quality but are slower than Normal or Draft. Draft provides the fastest print speed.
Cause:
The print quality was set to a high setting.
If this did not solve the issue, try the next solution.
Solution 2: Check the ink levels
Solution:
Check the estimated ink levels in the ink cartridges.
NOTE: Ink level alerts and indicators provide estimates for planning purposes
only. When you receive a low on ink message, consider having a replacement
cartridge available to avoid possible printing delays. You do not need to replace
the ink cartridges until prompted to do so.

Solve a problem
NOTE: The printer can operate with one or more depleted cartridges. However,
printing with depleted cartridges slows the printer and affects the quality of printed
documents. If the black cartridge is depleted, blacks are not as dark. If a color
cartridge is depleted, output is in grayscale. When possible, replace the depleted
cartridge. Do not remove the depleted cartridge until you have a new ink cartridge
available. For information about how to install new cartridges, see Replace the
ink cartridges.
CAUTION: While ink cartridges are not damaged when left outside of the printer,
the printhead does need to have all cartridges installed at all times after the printer
is set up and in use. Leaving one or more cartridge slots empty for an extended
period may lead to print quality problems and possibly damage the printhead. If
you have recently left a cartridge out of the printer for an extended period, or if
you have had a recent paper jam, and have noticed poor print quality, clean the
printhead. For more information, see Clean the printhead.
For more information, see:
Check the estimated ink levels
Cause: The ink cartridges might have insufficient ink. Printing with depleted
cartridges slows the printer.
If this did not solve the issue, try the next solution.
Solution 3: Contact HP support
Solution:
Contact HP support for service.
Go to: www.hp.com/support. This website provides information and utilities that can
help you correct many common printer problems.

Chapter 5
Solution 1: Make sure you are using genuine HP ink cartridges
Solution:
Check to see if your ink cartridges are genuine HP ink cartridges.
HP recommends that you use genuine HP ink cartridges. Genuine HP ink cartridges
are designed and tested with HP printers to help you easily produce great results,
time after time.
NOTE: HP cannot guarantee the quality or reliability of non-HP supplies. Printer
service or repairs required as a result of using a non-HP supply are not covered
under warranty.
If you believe you purchased genuine HP ink cartridges, go to:
www.hp.com/go/anticounterfeit
Cause:
Non-HP ink cartridges were being used.
If this did not solve the issue, try the next solution.
Solution 2: Check the ink levels
Solution:
Check the estimated ink levels in the ink cartridges.
NOTE: Ink level alerts and indicators provide estimates for planning purposes
only. When you receive a low-ink alert, consider having a replacement cartridge
available to avoid possible printing delays. You do not need to replace the ink
cartridges until prompted to do so.
NOTE: The printer can operate with one or more depleted cartridges. However,
printing with depleted cartridges slows the printer and affects the quality of printed
documents. If the black cartridge is depleted, blacks are not as dark. If a color
cartridge is depleted, output is in grayscale. When possible, replace the depleted

If this did not solve the issue, try the next solution.
58
Solve a problem
Solution 3: Check the paper loaded in the input tray
Solution: Make sure the paper is loaded correctly and that it is not wrinkled or too
thick.
• Load paper with the print side facing down. For example, if you are loading glossy
photo paper, load the paper with the glossy side down.
• Make sure the paper lays flat in the input tray and is not wrinkled. If the paper is
too close to the printhead during printing, the ink might be smeared. This can
happen if the paper is raised, wrinkled, or very thick, such as a mailing envelope.
For more information, see:
Load paper.
Cause: The paper was loaded incorrectly, or it was wrinkled or too thick.
If this did not solve the issue, try the next solution.
Solution 4: Check the paper type
Solution: HP recommends that you use HP papers or any other paper type with
ColorLok technology that is appropriate for the printer. All papers with the ColorLok
logo are independently tested to meet high standards of reliability and print quality,
and produce documents with crisp, vivid color, bolder blacks and dry faster than
ordinary plain papers.
Always make sure the paper you are printing on is flat. For best results when printing
images, use HP Advanced Photo Paper.
Store specialty media in its original packaging inside a resealable plastic bag on a
flat surface in a cool, dry place. When you are ready to print, remove only the paper
you plan to use immediately. When you have finished printing, return any unused
photo paper to the plastic bag. This prevents the photo paper from curling.
NOTE: For this issue, there is not a problem with your ink supplies. Therefore,
replacing the ink cartridges is not necessary.
For more information, see:
Select paper
Cause: The wrong kind of paper was loaded in the input tray.
If this did not solve the issue, try the next solution.

Chapter 5
Solution 5: Check the print settings
Solution: Check the print settings.
• Check the print settings to see if the color settings are incorrect.
For example, check to see if the document is set to print in grayscale. Or, check
to see if advanced color settings such as saturation, brightness, or color tone, are
set to modify the appearance of colors.
• Check the print quality setting and make sure it matches the type of paper loaded
in the printer.
You might need to choose a lower print quality setting if colors are running into
each other. Or, choose a higher setting if you are printing a high-quality photo,
and then make sure photo paper such as HP Advanced Photo Paper is loaded in
the input tray.
NOTE: On some computer screens, colors might appear differently than they do
when printed on paper. In this case, there is nothing wrong with the printer, print
settings, or ink cartridges. No further troubleshooting is required.
For more information, see:
Select paper
Cause:
The print settings were set incorrectly.
If this did not solve the issue, try the next solution.
Solution 6: Print and evaluate a print quality report
Solution:
To print a print quality report
• Control panel: Touch (right arrow), and then touch Setup, select Reports, and
then select Print Quality Report.
• Embedded web server: Click the Tools tab, click Print Quality Toolbox under
Utilities, and then click Print Quality Report button.

If the Network Status is Ready, the printer
is actively connected to a network.
If the Network Status is Offline, the printer
is not connected to a network. Run the
Print Wireless Network Test (using the
instructions at the beginning of this
section) and follow any
recommendations.
The URL shown here is the network address
assigned to the printer by your router. You
need this to connect to the embedded web
server (EWS).

If you cannot open the EWS or are still having problems using the printer over the network,
continue to the next section regarding firewalls.
Step 3 - Make sure your computer is not connected to your network over a Virtual
Private Network (VPN)
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) is a computer network that uses the Internet to provide
a remote, secure connection to an organization’s network. However, most VPN services
do not allow you to access local devices (like your printer) on your local network while
your computer is connected to the VPN.
To connect to the printer, disconnect from the VPN.
TIP: To use the printer while connected to the VPN, you can connect the printer to
your computer with a USB cable. The printer uses its USB and network connections
at the same time.
For more information, contact your network administrator or the person who set up the
wireless network.
Step 4 - Make sure the printer is online and ready
If you have the HP software installed, you can check the printer’s status from your
computer to see if the printer is paused or offline, preventing you from using it.
To check the printer’s status, follow the instructions for your operating system:
Windows

Step 5 - Make sure the wireless version of the printer is set as the default printer
driver (Windows only)
If you install the HP software again, the installer might create a second version of the
printer driver in your Printers or Printers and Faxes or Devices and Printers folder. If
you have difficulties printing or connecting to the printer, make sure the correct version
of the printer driver is set as the default.
1. Click Start, and then click Printers or Printers and Faxes or Devices and
Printers.
- Or Click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Printers.
2. Determine if the version of the printer driver in the Printers or Printers and Faxes
or Devices and Printers folder is connected wirelessly:
a. Right-click the printer icon, and then click Properties, Document Defaults, or
Printing Preferences.
b. On the Ports tab, look for a port in the list with a checkmark. The version of the
printer driver that is connected wirelessly has HP network re-discovery port
monitor as the Port description, next to the checkmark.
3. Right-click the printer icon for the version of the printer driver that is connected
wirelessly, and select Set as Default Printer.
NOTE: If there is more than one icon in the folder for the printer, right-click the printer
icon for the version of the printer driver that is connected wirelessly, and select Set
as Default Printer.
Step 6 - Check to see if the firewall software is blocking communication
If you cannot access the EWS and are sure both the computer and printer have active
connections to the same network, the firewall security software might be blocking
communication. Temporarily turn off any firewall security software running on your

computer and then try to open the EWS again. If you can open the EWS, try using the
printer (for printing).
If you are able to open the EWS and use your printer with the firewall turned off, you need
to reconfigure your firewall settings to allow the computer and printer to communicate
with each other over the network. For more information, see Configure your firewall
software to work with the printer.
If you are able to open the EWS, but are still unable to use the printer even with the firewall
turned off, try enabling the firewall software to recognize the printer. For more information,
see the documentation provided with your firewall software.
After resolving the problems
After you resolve any problems and have successfully connected the printer to your
wireless network, complete the following steps for your operating system:
Windows
1. On the computer desktop, click Start, select Programs or All Programs, click HP,
click the name fo the folder, and then click Printer Setup & Software.
- Or On the Start screen, click Printer Setup & Software.
2. Click Connect a new printer, and then select the type of connection you want to use.
Mac OS X
1. Open HP Utility. For more information, see HP Utility (Mac OS X).
2. Click the Applications icon on the HP Utility toolbar, double-click HP Setup
Assistant, and then follow the onscreen instructions.
Configure your firewall software to work with the printer
A personal firewall, which is security software running on your computer, can block
network communication between your printer and your computer.
If you are having problems such as:
•
•
•
Printer not found when installing HP software
Unable to print, print job stuck in queue or printer goes offline
Unable to see printer status on your computer
The firewall might be preventing your printer from notifying computers on your network
where it can be found.
If you are using the HP software on a computer running Windows and cannot find the
printer during installation (and you know the printer is on the network)—or if you have
already successfully installed HP software and experience problems—check the
following:
•
•
72
If you have just installed the HP software, try turning off your computer and the printer,
and then turning them both on again.
Keep your security software up to date. Many security software vendors provide
updates that correct known issues and provide the latest defenses against new
security threats.
Solve a problem
•
•
•
•
•
If your firewall has "High", "Medium", or "Low" security settings, use the "Medium"
setting when your computer is connected to your network.
If you have changed any firewall settings from default, try going back to the default
setting.
If your firewall has a setting called "trusted zone", use this setting when your computer
is connected to your network.
If your firewall has a setting to "not show alert messages", you should disable this.
When installing the HP software and using the HP printer you may see alert messages
from your firewall software that provide options to "allow", "permit" or "unblock". You
should allow any HP software that causes an alert. Also, if the alert has a "remember
this action" or "create a rule for this" selection, select it. This is how the firewall learns
what can be trusted on your network.
Do not have more than one firewall enabled at the same time on your computer. An
example would be having both the Windows firewall provided by the operating system
and a 3rd party firewall enabled at the same time. Having more than one firewall
enabled at the same time will not make your computer any safer and may cause
problems.
For more information about using your printer with personal firewall software, visit
www.hp.com/go/wirelessprinting, and then click Firewall Help in the Need Help
Troubleshooting? section. The Firewall Help section also includes workarounds for
known issues with some firewalls.

Clean the printhead
If your printed output is streaked or has any incorrect or missing colors, the printhead
might need to be cleaned.
There are three stages of cleaning. Each stage lasts about two minutes, uses one sheet
of paper, and uses an increasing amount of ink. After each stage, review the quality of
the printed page. You should only initiate the next phase of cleaning if the print quality is
poor.
If print quality still seems poor after you complete both stages of cleaning, try aligning the
printer. If print quality problems persist after cleaning and aligning, contact HP support.

Guidelines for printing on both sides of a page
•
Always use media that conforms to the printer specifications. For more information, see Paper
specifications.
•
Specify two-sided printing options in your application or in the printer driver.
•
Do not print on both sides of envelopes, photo paper, glossy media, or paper lighter than 16 lb
bond (60 g/m2) or heavier than 28 lb bond (105 g/m2). Jams might occur with these media types.
Printer specifications
95
Appendix A
•
Several kinds of media require a specific orientation when you print on both sides of a page.
These include letterhead, preprinted paper, and paper with watermarks and prepunched holes.
When you print from a computer running Windows, the printer prints the first side of the media
first. Load the media with the print side facing down.
•
For auto-duplexing, when printing finishes on one side of the media, the printer holds the media
and pauses while the ink dries. Once the ink dries, the media is pulled back into the printer and
the second side is printed. When printing is complete, the media is dropped onto the output tray.
Do not grab it before printing is complete.

Guidelines for ensuring wireless network security
The following information can help you keep your wireless network and wireless printer secure from
unauthorized use.
For more information, visit www.hp.com/go/wirelessprinting.
This section contains the following topics:
•
Overview of security settings
•
•
Add hardware addresses to a wireless router (MAC filtering)
Other wireless security guidelines
Overview of security settings
To help improve the security of the wireless network and prevent unauthorized access, the printer
supports many common types of network authentication, including WEP, WPA, and WPA2.
•
WEP: Provides security by encrypting data sent over radio waves from one wireless device to
another wireless device. Devices on a WEP-enabled network use WEP keys to encode data. If
your network uses WEP, you must know the WEP key(s) it uses.
•
WPA: Increases the level of over-the-air data protection and access control on existing and
future wireless networks. It addresses all known weaknesses of WEP, the original native security
mechanism in the 802.11 standard. WPA uses the Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP) for
encryption and employs 802.1X authentication with one of the standard Extensible
Authentication Protocol (EAP) types available today.
•
WPA2: Provides enterprise and consumer wireless users with a high level of assurance that
only authorized users can access their wireless networks. WPA2 provides the Advanced
Encryption Standard (AES). AES is defined in counter cipher-block chaining mode (CCM) and
supports the Independent Basic Service Set (IBSS) to enable security between client
workstations operating connected wirelessly without a wireless router (such as a Linksys
wireless router or Apple AirPort Base Station).
Add hardware addresses to a wireless router (MAC filtering)
MAC filtering is a security feature in which a wireless router or wireless access point is configured
with a list of hardware addresses (also called "MAC addresses") of devices that are allowed to gain
access to the network through the router.
If the router filters hardware addresses, then the printer's hardware address must be added to the
router’s list of accepted hardware addresses. If the router does not have the hardware address of a
printer attempting to access the network, the router denies the printer access to the network.
CAUTION: This method is not recommended, however, because your MAC addresses can
easily be read and falsified by unwanted users outside your network.
Set up the printer for wireless communication
127
Appendix C
To add hardware addresses to a wireless router or wireless access point
1. Print the network configuration page, and then locate the printer’s hardware address. For more
information, see Understand the network configuration page.
NOTE: The printer maintains separate hardware addresses for the Ethernet connection
and for wireless connection. Both hardware addresses are listed on the printer’s network
configuration page.
2.
Open the configuration utility for the wireless router or wireless access point, and add the
printer's hardware address to the list of accepted hardware addresses.
NOTE: For more information about using the configuration utility, see the documentation
provided with the router or wireless access point.
Other wireless security guidelines
To keep the wireless network secure, follow these guidelines:
•
Use a wireless password with at least 20 random characters. You can use up to 64 characters
in a WPA wireless password.
•
Avoid any common words or phrases, easy sequences of characters (such as all 1s), and
personally-identifiable information for wireless passwords. Always use random strings
composed of uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and if allowed, special characters such
as punctuation.
•
Change the default wireless password provided by the manufacturer for administrator access
to the access point or wireless router. Some routers let you change the administrator name as
well.
•
Turn off administrative access over wireless if possible. If you do this, you need to connect to
the router with an Ethernet connection when you want to make configuration changes.
•
Turn off remote administrative access over the Internet on your router, if possible. You can use
Remote Desktop to make an encrypted connection to a computer running behind your router
and make configuration changes from the local computer you are accessing over the Internet.
•
To avoid accidentally connecting to another party's wireless network, turn off the setting to
automatically connect to non-preferred networks. This is disabled by default in Windows XP.
Guidelines for reducing interference on a wireless network
The following tips will help reduce the chances for interference in a wireless network:
•
Keep the wireless devices away from large metal objects, such as filing cabinets, and other
electromagnetic devices, such as microwaves and cordless telephones, as these objects can
disrupt radio signals.
•
Keep the wireless devices away from large masonry structures and other building structures as
these objects can absorb radio waves and lower signal strength.
•
Position the access point or wireless router in a central location in line of sight with the wireless
devices on the network.
•
Keep all wireless devices on the network within range of one another.
Uninstall and reinstall the HP software
If your installation is incomplete, or if you connected the USB cable to the computer before prompted
by the HP software installation screen, you might need to uninstall and then reinstall the HP software
that came with the printer. Do not simply delete the printer application files from your computer. Make
sure to remove them correctly using the uninstall utility provided when you installed the HP software.

About cookies
The embedded web server (EWS) places very small text files (cookies) on your hard drive when you
are browsing. These files let the EWS recognize your computer the next time you visit. For example,
if you have configured the EWS language, a cookie helps remember which language you have
selected so that the next time you access the EWS, the pages are displayed in that language. Though
some cookies are cleared at the end of each session (such as the cookie that stores the selected
language), others (such as the cookie that stores customer-specific preferences) are stored on the
computer until you clear them manually.
NOTE: The cookies that the EWS stores on your computer are only used for saving settings
on your computer or for sharing information between the printer and the computer. These
cookies are not sent to any HP websites.
You can configure your browser to accept all cookies, or you can configure it to alert you every time
a cookie is offered, which allows you to decide which cookies to accept or refuse. You can also use
your browser to remove unwanted cookies.
NOTE: Depending on your printer, if you disable cookies, you also disable one or more of the
following features:
•
Starting where you left the application (especially useful when using setup wizards)
•
Remembering the EWS browser language setting
•
Personalizing the EWS Home page
For information about how to change your privacy and cookie settings and how to view or delete
cookies, see the documentation available with your web browser.
To open the embedded web server
NOTE: The printer must be on a network and must have an IP address. The IP address and
hostname for the printer are listed on the status report. For more information, see Understand
the network configuration page.
In a supported web browser on your computer, type the IP address or hostname assigned to the
printer.
For example, if the IP address is 123.123.123.123, type the following address into the web browser:
http://123.123.123.123
TIP: After opening the embedded web server, you can bookmark it so that you can return to it
quickly.
TIP: If you are using the Safari web browser in Mac OS X, you can also use the Bonjour
bookmark to open the EWS without typing the IP address. To use the Bonjour bookmark, open
Safari, and then from the Safari menu, click Preferences. On the Bookmarks tab, in the
Bookmarks bar section, select Include Bonjour, and then close the window. Click the
Bonjour bookmark, and then select your networked printer to open the EWS.

Product security features
This product supports security standards and protocols that help secure the product, protect
information on your network, and simplify monitoring and maintenance of the product.
For information about HP's secure imaging and printing solutions, visit www.hp.com/go/
Secureprinting. The site provides links to white papers and FAQ documents about security features
and may include information about additional security features that are not contained in this
document.
Assign an administrator password in the embedded web server
The embedded web server allows you to assign an administrator password so that unauthorized
users cannot change product configuration settings in the embedded web server. When the admin
password is assigned and applied, you must enter the password to make any configuration changes
that are done through the embedded web server. If you change an existing password, you must first
enter that password. You can also remove the password by entering the existing password and then
deleting the assigned password.
Control panel lock
The embedded web server allows the ability to lock certain features on the product’s control panel
to prevent unauthorized use. Once the control panel lock is enabled, certain control panel
configuration features cannot be changed from the control panel. The control panel lock setting itself
can also be secured. This is accomplished by setting the embedded web server administrator
password. Once the embedded web server administrator password is set, the admin password must
be entered when accessing the control panel lock enable/disable setting.
Disable unused protocols and services
The embedded web server allows the ability to disable unused protocols and services. These
protocol and services settings can also be protected from being changed by setting the EWS admin
password. These protocols and services include the following:
•
IPv4 and IPv6 disable/enable: To operate properly on a TCP/IP network, the product must be
configured with valid TCP/IP network configuration settings, such as an IP address that is valid
for your network. This product supports two versions of this protocol: version 4 (IPv4) and version
6 (IPv6). IPv4 and IPv6 can be enabled/disable individually or simultaneously enabled.
•
Bonjour disable/enable: Bonjour services are typically used on small networks for IP address
and name resolution where conventional a DNS server is not used. The Bonjour service can be
enabled or disabled.
•
SNMP disable/enable: SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) is used by network
management applications for product management. This product supports the SNMPv1 protocol
on IP networks. This product allows the ability to enable/disable SNMPv1.
•
WINS disable/enable: If you have a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) service on
your network, the product automatically obtains its IP address from that server and registers its
name with any RFC 1001 and 1002-compliant dynamic name services as long as the Windows
Internet Name Service (WINS) server IP address has been specified. The WINS server IP
address configuration can be enable or disabled. If enabled, then the primary and secondary
WINS server can be specified.
•
SLP disable/enable: Service Location Protocol (SLP) is an Internet standard network protocol
that provides a framework to allow network applications to discover the existence, location and
configuration of networked services in enterprise networks. This protocol can be enabled or
disabled.
•
LPD disable/enable: Line Printer Daemon (LPD) refers to the protocol and programs associated
with line-printer spooling services that may be installed on various TCP/IP systems. LPD can
be enabled or disabled.
Product security features

Appendix D
•
•
LLMNR disable/enable: Link-Local Multicast Name Resolution (LLMNR) is a protocol based
on the Domain Name System (DNS) packet format that allows both IPv4 and IPv6 hosts to
perform name resolution for hosts on the same local link. LLMNR can be enabled or disabled.
Port 9100 disable/enable: The product supports raw IP printing through TCP Port 9100. This
HP-propriety TCP/IP port on the product is the default port for printing and it is accessed by HP
software. Port 9100 can be enabled or disabled.
•
Web Services disable/enable: The product supports the ability to enable or disable Microsoft
Web Services Dynamic Discovery (WS Discovery) protocols or Microsoft Web Services for
Devices (WSD) Print services supported on the product. These web services can be enabled
or disabled together or WS Discovery can be enabled separately.
•
Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) disable/enable: Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) is an Internetstandard protocol that allows you to print documents and manage jobs over the internet. IPP
can be disabled or enabled.
Administrator settings
The embedded web server allows the ability to enable and disable certain product capabilities. These
include network, Ethernet, wireless, wireless access point (i.e. disables wireless direct capability),
USB, control panel lock, color print from memory devices, all web services, only ePrint, and only
Apps. The product must be turned off, and then turned on again, for settings to take effect.
Color access control
HP’s suite of color access control tools allows you to enable or disable color by individuals users or
groups and applications. For more information see www.hp.com/go/upd. The embedded web server
also allows you to disable color faxing, color copying, and color print from memory devices.
Protected protocols – HTTPS
The embedded web server features the ability to enable encryption of product communication
through the HTTPS redirection feature. When used, HTTPS prevents others from viewing
information between the EWS and the product via encryption – providing a secure communication
method.
Firewall
The embedded web server allows the ability to enable and configure product firewall rules, priorities,
templates, services and policies. The firewall feature provides a network-layer of security on both
IPv4 and IPv6 networks. The firewall configuration capability provides control over IP addresses that
are allowed access the product, and the ability to set permissions and priorities for digital send,
management, discovery, and print services--providing a more secure way of controlling access to
the product.
Syslog
Support of Syslog, a standard protocol for logging status messages to a designated server, can be
used to track the activities and status of devices on the network. The embedded web service provides
the ability to enable Syslog and to specify the server to which the status messages will be sent.
Specifying the priority of those status messages is also supported.
Certificates
The embedded web server provides the ability to install and manage certificates for the
authentication of product, server and network. This includes the ability to create a certificate, install
a certificate, and import and export certificates.
Signed firmware
Support of digitally-signed firmware updates eliminates exposure to malicious software by preventing
the installation of non-approved firmware on the product.
