media or clearing a media jam. These messages are usually accompanied by a
blinking red Attention light. Take the appropriate action to continue printing.
If the error message shows an error code, press the Power button to turn off the
device, and then turn it on again. In most situations, this action solves the problem. If
the message persists, your device might need service. Write down the error code, and
then go to HP Instant Support to learn more about possible causes for the message.
For more information, see HP Instant Support.
Critical error messages
Critical error messages inform you of a device failure. Some of these messages can
be cleared by pressing the Power button to turn off the device, and then turning it on
again. If a critical error persists, service is required. For more information, see Support

For the best results, observe the following guidelines.
•
•
•
•
•
•
Always use media that conforms to the device specifications. For more
information, see Understand specifications for supported media.
Load only one type of media at a time into a tray.
For Tray 1 and Tray 2, load media print-side down and aligned against the right
and back edges of the tray. Tray 2 is available with some models. For more
information, see Load media.
Tray 2 is designed to hold only plain paper.
Do not overload the trays. For more information, see Understand specifications for
supported media.
To prevent jams, poor print quality, and other printing problems, avoid the following
media:
• Multipart forms
• Media that is damaged, curled, or wrinkled
• Media with cutouts or perforations
• Media that is heavily textured, embossed, or does not accept ink well
• Media that is too lightweight or stretches easily
Cards and envelopes
• Avoid envelopes that have a very slick finish, self-stick adhesives, clasps, or
windows. Also avoid cards and envelopes with thick, irregular, or curled edges, or
areas that are wrinkled, torn, or otherwise damaged.
• Use tightly constructed envelopes, and make sure the folds are sharply creased.
• Load envelopes with the flaps facing up.
32
Use the all-in-one
Photo media
• Use the Best mode to print photographs. Note that in this mode, printing takes
longer and more memory is required from your computer.
• Remove each sheet as it prints and set it aside to dry. Allowing wet media to stack
up may cause smearing.
Transparencies
• Insert transparencies with the rough side down and the adhesive strip pointing
towards the back of the device.
• Use the Normal mode to print transparencies. This mode provides longer drying
time and ensures that the ink dries completely before the next page is delivered to
the output tray.
• Remove each sheet as it prints and set it aside to dry. Allowing wet media to stack
up may cause smearing.
Custom-sized media
• Use only custom-sized media that is supported by the device.
• If your application supports custom-sized media, set the media size in the
application before printing the document. If not, set the size in the print driver. You
might need to reformat existing documents to print them correctly on custom-sized
media.
Understand specifications for supported media
Use the Understand supported sizes and Understand supported media types and
weights tables to determine the correct media to use with your device, and determine
what features will work with your media.

Configure trays
NOTE: Tray 2 is available with some models. For ordering information, see Order

By default, the device draws media from Tray 1. If Tray 1 is empty, the device draws
media 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 device 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 device
draws media.
NOTE: To use the tray lock and default tray settings, you must select the
automatic tray selection option in the device software. If the device is on a network
and you set a default tray, the setting will affect all users of the device.
Tray 2 is designed to hold only plain paper.

Print on both sides (duplexing)
You can print on both sides of a sheet of media, either automatically by using the
optional automatic two-sided printing accessory (duplexer), or manually by turning the
media over and feeding it into the device again.

•
•
•
•
•
•
Always use media that conforms to the device specifications. For more
information, see Understand specifications for supported media.
Specify duplex options in your application or in the printer driver.
Do not print on both sides of transparencies, 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.
Several kinds of media require a specific orientation when you print on both sides
of a page, such as letterhead, preprinted paper, and paper with watermarks and
prepunched holes. When you print from a computer running Windows, the device
prints the first side of the media first. When you print from a computer using the
Mac OS, the device prints the second side first. Load the media with the front side
facing down.
For auto-duplexing, when printing finishes on one side of the media, the device
holds the media and pauses while the ink dries. Once the ink dries, the media is
pulled back into the device 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.
You can print on both sides of supported custom-sized media by turning the media
over and feeding it into the device again. For more information, see Understand
specifications for supported media.
To perform duplexing (Windows)
1. Load the appropriate media. For more information, see Guidelines for printing on
both sides of a page and Load media.
2. Make sure the duplexer is properly installed. For more information, see Install the
duplexer.
3. With a document open, click Print on the File menu, and then click Setup,
Properties, or Preferences.
4. Click the Features tab.
5. Select the Two-sided printing drop-down list. For auto-duplexing, ensure that
Automatic is selected.
6. To automatically resize each page to match the document's onscreen layout,

Edit a scanned original
You can edit a scanned image using the HP Photosmart Software. You can also edit a
scanned document by using your Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software.
Edit a scanned photo or graphic
You can edit a scanned photo or graphic using the HP Photosmart Software. Use this
software to adjust the brightness, contrast, color saturation, and more. You can also
rotate the image using the HP Photosmart Software.
For more information, see the onscreen HP Photosmart Software Help.
Edit a scanned document using optical character recognition (OCR) software
You can use OCR software to import scanned text into your preferred word-processing
program for editing. This allows you to edit faxes, letters, newspaper clippings, and
many other documents.
You can specify the word-processing program that you want to use for editing. If the
word-processing icon is not present or active, either you do not have word-processing
software installed on your computer, or the scanner software did not recognize the
program during the installation. See the onscreen Help for the HP photo and imaging
software for information about how to create a link to the word-processing program.
The OCR software does not support scanning colored text. Colored text is always
converted to black-and-white text before being sent to OCR. Thus, all text in the final
document is in black and white, regardless of the original color.
Because of the complexity of some word-processing programs and their interaction
with the device, it is sometimes preferable to scan to Wordpad (a Windows
56
Scan
accessory), and then cut and paste the text into the preferred word-processing
program.

Connect a digital camera
59
Chapter 7
The device supports two industry-standard formats, PictBridge and Digital Print Order
Format (DPOF) file format 1.1, so you do not have to reselect the photos to print.
•
•
The PictBridge standard saves the print instructions on the camera itself. In order
to print photos using PictBridge, you need to put the camera into PictBridge mode,
and then plug the camera into the front USB port of the device with a USB cable.
The DPOF standard saves the print instructions as a file on your memory card. In
order to print photos from a DPOF file, you need to remove the memory card from
your camera and then insert the memory card into the appropriate slot on the
device.
When you print camera-selected photos, the device print settings do not apply; the
PictBridge or DPOF settings for page layout and number of copies override those of
the device.
NOTE: Not all digital cameras enable you to tag your photos for printing. See the
documentation that came with your digital camera to see if your camera supports
the PictBridge standard or DPOF file format 1.1.
To print camera-selected photos using the PictBridge standard
1. Connect your digital camera to the front USB port on the device using the USB
cable supplied with your camera.
2. Turn on your camera and make sure it is in PictBridge mode.
NOTE: Check your camera documentation to verify how to change the USB
mode to PictBridge. Different cameras use different terms to describe
PictBridge mode. For instance, some cameras have a digital camera setting
and a disk drive setting. In this instance, the digital camera setting is the
PictBridge mode setting.
To print camera-selected photos using the DPOF standard
1. Insert your memory card into the appropriate slot on the device.
2. When prompted, do one of the following:
• Press OK to print all DPOF-tagged photos.
The device prints all DPOF-tagged photos.
• Press the arrow keys to highlight No, and then press OK.
This bypasses DPOF printing.

Work with memory devices (some models only)
Connect a storage device
You can connect a storage device such as a keychain drive, portable hard drive, or a
digital camera in storage mode to the front USB port. The front USB port is located
beneath the memory card slots.
NOTE: Digital cameras that are in storage mode can be attached to the front USB
port. The device treats cameras that are in this mode as a normal storage device.
Digital cameras in storage mode are referred to as storage devices throughout this
section.
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 millimeters, you will need to purchase a
USB extension cable in order to use your device with this port. For more
information on supported USB devices, see Supported devices.
Check your camera documentation to verify how to change the USB mode to
storage mode. 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.
Once you have connected the storage device, you can do the following with the files
that are stored on your storage device:

Fax (some models only)
You can use the device to send and receive faxes, including color faxes. You can
schedule faxes to be sent at a later time and set up speed-dials to send faxes quickly
and easily to frequently used numbers. From the control panel, you can also set a
number of fax options, such as resolution and the contrast between lightness and
darkness on the faxes you send.
If the device is directly connected to a computer, you can use the HP photo and
imaging software to perform fax procedures that are not available from the control
panel. For more information about using the HP photo and imaging software, see Use
the HP photo and imaging software.
NOTE: Before you begin faxing, make sure you have set up the device properly
for faxing. You might have already done this as part of the initial setup, by using
either the control panel or the software that came with the device. You can verify
the fax is set up correctly by running the fax setup test from the control panel. To

Send a fax
You can send a fax in a variety of ways. Using the control panel, you can send a blackand-white or color fax. You can also send a fax manually from an attached phone.
This allows you to speak with the recipient before sending the fax.
Send a basic fax
You can easily send a single- or multiple-page black-and-white fax by using the control
panel.
NOTE: If you need printed confirmation that your faxes were successfully sent,
enable fax confirmation before sending any faxes.
TIP: You can also send a fax manually from a phone or by using monitor dialing.
These features allow you to control the pace of your dialing. They are also useful
when you want to use a calling card to charge the call and you have to respond to
tone prompts while dialing.

original is loaded print-side down on the glass, and then select Yes.
TIP: If the recipient reports issues with the quality of the fax you sent, you can
try changing the resolution or contrast of your fax.
Send a fax manually from a phone
You can send a fax from a telephone on the same phone line if you prefer to use the
keypad on your phone, instead of the keypad on the control panel of the device. You
can do this by plugging in a phone into the 2–EXT port on the back of the device.
When you send a fax manually, you can hear the dial tones, telephone prompts, or
other sounds through the handset on your telephone. This makes it easy for you to
use a calling card to send your fax.
Depending on how the recipient has their fax machine set up, the recipient might
answer the phone, or the fax machine might take the call. If a person answers the
phone, you can speak with the recipient before sending the fax. If a fax machine
answers the call, you can send the fax directly to the fax machine when you hear the
fax tones from the receiving fax machine.
To send a fax manually from a phone
1. Load your originals. For additional information, see Load media.
NOTE: This feature is not supported if you load your originals on the glass.
You must load your originals in the document feeder tray.
2. Dial the number by using the keypad on the phone that is connected to the device.
NOTE: Do not use the keypad on the control panel of the device when
manually sending a fax. You must use the keypad on your phone to dial the
recipient's number.

that they should press Start on their fax machine after they hear fax tones.
The telephone line is silent while the fax is transmitting. At this point, you can hang
up the telephone. If you want to continue speaking with the recipient, remain on
the line until the fax transmission is complete.
Send a fax using monitor dialing
Monitor dialing allows you to dial a number from the control panel as you would dial a
regular telephone. When you send a fax using monitor dialing, you can hear the dial
tones, telephone prompts, or other sounds through the speakers on the device. This
enables you to respond to prompts while dialing, as well as control the pace of your
dialing.
TIP: If you do not enter your calling card PIN fast enough, the device might start
sending fax tones too soon and cause your PIN not to be recognized by the calling
card service. If this is the case, you can create a speed dial entry to store the PIN
for your calling card.
NOTE: Make sure the volume is turned on, or you will not hear a dial tone.
To send a fax using monitor dialing from the control panel
1. Load your originals. For additional information, see Load media.

Set up backup fax reception
Depending on your preference and security requirements, you can set up the device to
store all the faxes it receives, only the faxes it receives while the device is in an error
condition, or none of the faxes it receives.
The following Backup Fax Reception modes are available:
On
The default setting. When Backup Fax Reception is On, the device
stores all received faxes in memory. This enables you to reprint up to
eight of the most recently printed faxes if they are still saved in memory.
NOTE: When device memory is low, it overwrites the oldest, printed
faxes as it receives new faxes. If the memory becomes full of unprinted
faxes, the device stops answering incoming fax calls.
NOTE: If you receive a fax that is too large, such as a very detailed
color photo, it might not be stored in memory due to memory limitations.
74
On Error Only
Causes the device to store faxes in memory only if an error condition
exists that prevents the device from printing the faxes (for example, if the
device runs out of paper). The device continues to store incoming faxes
as long as there is memory available. (If the memory becomes full, the
device stops answering incoming fax calls.) When the error condition is
resolved, the faxes stored in memory print automatically, and then they
are deleted from memory.
Off
Faxes are never stored in memory. For example, you might want to turn
off Backup Fax Reception for security purposes. If an error condition
occurs that prevents the device from printing (for example, the device
runs out of paper), the device stops answering incoming fax calls.
Fax (some models only)
NOTE: If Backup Fax Reception is enabled and you turn off the device, all faxes
stored in memory are deleted, including any unprinted faxes that you might have

as new faxes are received. If all the stored faxes are unprinted, the device does
not receive any fax calls until you print or delete the faxes from memory. You might
also want to delete the faxes in memory for security or privacy purposes.
Depending on the sizes of the faxes in memory, you can reprint up to eight of the most
recently printed faxes, if they are still in memory. For example, you might need to

Set the number of rings before answering
If you turn on the Auto Answer setting, you can specify how many rings occur before
incoming calls are automatically answered.
The Rings to Answer setting is important if you have an answering machine on the
same phone line as the device, because you want the answering machine to answer
the phone before the device does. The number of rings to answer for the device
should be greater than the number of rings to answer for the answering machine.
For example, set your answering machine to a low number of rings and the device to
answer in the maximum number of rings. (The maximum number of rings varies by
country/region.) In this setup, the answering machine answers the call and the device
monitors the line. If the device detects fax tones, it receives the fax. If the call is a

is assigned a different ring pattern. You can set up the device to answer incoming calls
that have a specific ring pattern.
If you connect the device to a line with distinctive ring, have your telephone company
assign one ring pattern to voice calls and another ring pattern to fax calls. HP
recommends that you request double or triple rings for a fax number. When the device
detects the specified ring pattern, it answers the call and receives the fax.
If you do not have a distinctive ring service, use the default ring pattern, which is All
Rings.

Have an IP converter box that connects to the Internet and provides analog phone
ports for the fax connection.
NOTE: You can only send and receive faxes by connecting a phone cord to the
port labeled "1-LINE" on the device and not from the Ethernet port. This means
that your connection to the Internet must be done either through a converter box
(which supplies regular analog phone jacks for fax connections) or your telephone
company.
82
Fax (some models only)
Some Internet faxing services do not work properly when the device is sending and
receiving faxes at high speed (33600bps). If you experience problems sending and
receiving faxes while using an Internet fax service, use a slower fax speed. You can
do this by changing the Fax Speed setting from High (the default) to Medium. For
information on changing this setting, see Set the fax speed.
You should also check with your telephone company to make sure their Internet faxing
service supports faxing.
Test fax setup
You can test your fax setup to check the status of the device and to make sure it is set
up properly for faxing. Perform this test after you have completed setting up the device
for faxing. The test does the following:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Tests the fax hardware
Verifies the correct type of phone cord is connected to the device
Checks that the phone cord is plugged into the correct port
Checks for a dial tone
Checks for an active phone line
Tests the status of your phone line connection
The device prints a report with the results of the test. If the test fails, review the report
for information on how to fix the problem and rerun the test.
To test fax setup
1. Set up the device for faxing according to your particular home or office setup
instructions.
2. Make sure the ink cartridges and printheads are installed, and that full-size paper
is loaded in the input tray before starting the test.
3. From the control panel, press Setup.
4. Select Tools, and then select Run Fax Test.
The device displays the status of the test on the display and prints a report.
5. Review the report.
• If the test passes and you are still having problems faxing, check the fax
settings listed in the report to verify the settings are correct. A blank or
incorrect fax setting can cause problems faxing.
• If the test fails, review the report for more information on how to fix any
problems found.
Use reports
You can set up the device to print error reports and confirmation reports automatically
for each fax you send and receive. You can also manually print system reports as
required; these reports provide useful system information about the device.
By default, the device is set to print a report only if there is a problem sending or
receiving a fax. A confirmation message that indicates whether a fax was successfully
sent appears briefly on the control-panel display after each transaction.

Chapter 9
Set up faxing (parallel phone systems)
Before you begin setting up the device for faxing, determine which kind of phone
system your country/region uses. The instructions for fax setup differ depending on
whether you have a serial- or parallel-type phone system.
•
If you do not see your country/region listed in the table below, you probably have a
serial-type phone system. In a serial-type phone system, the connector type on
your shared telephone equipment (modems, phones, and answering machines)
does not allow a physical connection to the "2-EXT" port on the device. Instead, all
equipment must be connected at the telephone wall jack.
NOTE: In some countries/regions that use serial-type phone systems, the
phone cord that came with the device might have an additional wall plug
attached to it. This enables you to connect other telecom devices to the wall
jack where you plug in the device.
•
If your country/region is listed in the table below, you probably have a parallel-type
telephone system. In a parallel-type phone system, you are able to connect shared
telephone equipment to the phone line by using the "2-EXT" port on the back of
the device.
NOTE: If you have a parallel-type phone system, HP recommends you use
the 2-wire phone cord supplied with the device to connect it to the telephone
wall jack.

If you are unsure which kind of telephone system you have (serial or parallel), check
with your telephone company.
Choose the correct fax setup for your home or office
To fax successfully, you need to know what types of equipment and services (if any)
share the same phone line with the device. This is important because you might need
102
Configure and manage
to connect some of your existing office equipment directly to the device, and you might
also need to change some fax settings before you can fax successfully.
To determine the best way to set up the device in your home or office, first read
through the questions in this section and record your answers. Next, refer to the table
in the following section and choose the recommended setup case based on your
answers.
Make sure to read and answer the following questions in the order they are presented.
1. Do you have a digital subscriber line (DSL) service through your telephone
company? (DSL might be called ADSL in your country/region.)
If you answered Yes, proceed directly to Case B: Set up the device with DSL. You
do not need to continue answering questions.
If you answered No, continue answering questions.
2. Do you have a private branch exchange (PBX) phone system or an integrated
services digital network (ISDN) system?
If you answered Yes, proceed directly to Case C: Set up the device with a PBX
phone system or an ISDN line. You do not need to continue answering questions.
If you answered No, continue answering questions.
3. Do you subscribe to a distinctive ring service through your telephone company that
provides multiple phone numbers with different ring patterns?
If you answered Yes, proceed directly to Case D: Fax with a distinctive ring service
on the same line. You do not need to continue answering questions.
If you answered No, continue answering questions.
Are you unsure if you have distinctive ring? Many phone companies offer a
distinctive ring feature that allows you to have several phone numbers on one
phone line.
When you subscribe to this service, each phone number will have a different ring
pattern. For example, you can have single, double, and triple rings for the different
numbers. You might assign one phone number with a single ring to your voice
calls, and another phone number with double rings to your fax calls. This allows
you to tell the difference between voice and fax calls when the phone rings.
4. Do you receive voice calls at the same phone number you will use for fax calls on
the device?
Continue answering questions.
5. Do you have a computer dial-up modem on the same phone line as the device?
Are you unsure if you use a computer dial-up modem? If you answer Yes to any of
the following questions, you are using a computer dial-up modem:
• Do you send and receive faxes directly to and from your computer software
applications through a dial-up connection?
• Do you send and receive e-mail messages on your computer through a dial-up
connection?
• Do you access the Internet from your computer through a dial-up connection?
Continue answering questions.

6. Do you have an answering machine that answers voice calls at the same phone
number you will use for fax calls on the device?
Continue answering questions.
7. Do you subscribe to a voice mail service through your telephone company at the
same phone number you will use for fax calls on the device?
After you have completed answering the questions, proceed to the next section to
select your fax setup case.
Select your fax setup case
Now that you have answered all the questions about the equipment and services that
share the phone line with the device, you are ready to choose the best setup case for
your home or office.
From the first column in the following table, choose the combination of equipment and
services applicable to your home or office setting. Then look up the appropriate setup
case in the second or third column based on your phone system. Step-by-step
instructions are included for each case in the sections that follow.
If you have answered all the questions in the previous section and have none of the
described equipment or services, choose "None" from the first column in the table.
NOTE: If your home or office setup is not described in this section, set up the
device as you would a regular analog phone. Make sure you use the phone cord
supplied in the box to connect one end to your telephone wall jack and the other
end to the port labeled 1-LINE on the back of the device. If you use another phone
cord, you might experience problems sending and receiving faxes.

3. (Optional) Change the Rings to Answer setting to the lowest setting (two rings).
4. Run a fax test.
When the phone rings, the device answers automatically after the number of rings you
set in the Rings to Answer setting. The device begins emitting fax reception tones to
the sending fax machine and receives the fax.
Case B: Set up the device with DSL
If you have a DSL service through your telephone company, and do not connect any
equipment to the device, use the instructions in this section to connect a DSL filter
between the telephone wall jack and the device. The DSL filter removes the digital
signal that can interfere with the device, so the device can communicate properly with
the phone line. (DSL might be called ADSL in your country/region.)
NOTE: If you have a DSL line and you do not connect the DSL filter, you will not
be able to send and receive faxes with the device.

4. Run a fax test.
Case C: Set up the device with a PBX phone system or an ISDN line
If you are using either a PBX phone system or an ISDN converter/terminal adapter,
make sure you do the following:
•
If you are using either a PBX or an ISDN converter/terminal adaptor, connect the
device to the port that is designated for fax and phone use. Also, make sure that
the terminal adapter is set to the correct switch type for your country/region, if
possible.
NOTE: Some ISDN systems allow you to configure the ports for specific
phone equipment. For example, you might have assigned one port for
telephone and Group 3 fax and another port for multiple purposes. If you have
problems when connected to the fax/phone port of your ISDN converter, try
using the port designated for multiple purposes; it might be labeled "multicombi" or something similar.
•
If you are using a PBX phone system, set the call waiting tone to "off."
NOTE: Many digital PBX systems include a call-waiting tone that is set to "on"
by default. The call waiting tone will interfere with any fax transmission, and
you will not be able to send or receive faxes with the device. Refer to the
documentation that came with your PBX phone system for instructions on how
to turn off the call-waiting tone.
•
•
If you are using a PBX phone system, dial the number for an outside line before
dialing the fax number.
Make sure you use the supplied cord to connect from the telephone wall jack to
the device. If you do not, you might not be able to fax successfully. This special
phone cord is different from the phone cords you might already have in your home
or office. If the supplied phone cord is too short, you can purchase a coupler from
your local electronics store and extend it.

For more information, see To set up wireless
communication using SecureEasySetup (SES).
* An ad hoc network can be set up using the Wireless Connection Utility on the Starter
CD.
NOTE: If you encounter problems, see Solve wireless problems.
To use the device with any wireless connection, you must run the installation
program at least once from the Starter CD and create a wireless connection.
Make sure the device is not connected to the network using a network cable.
The sending device must have built-in 802.11 capabilities or an 802.11 wireless
card installed.
The device and the computers that use it must be on the same subnet.
Before installing the device software, you may wish to find out the settings of your
network. Obtain the information from your system administrators, or complete the
following tasks:
•
•
•
Obtain your network's network name or Service Set Identifier (SSID) and
communication mode (infrastructure or ad hoc) from the configuration utility for the
network's wireless access point (WAP) or the computer's network card.
Find out the type of encryption your network uses, such as Wired Equivalent
Privacy (WEP).
Find out the security password or encryption key of the wireless device.
Understand 802.11 wireless network settings
Network name (SSID)
By default, the device looks for the wireless network name or SSID named "hpsetup."
Your network may have a different SSID.
Communication mode
There are two communication mode options:
•
130
Ad hoc: On an ad hoc network, the device is set to ad hoc communication mode
and communicates directly with other wireless devices without the use of a WAP.
All devices on the ad hoc network must:
• Be 802.11 compatible
• Have ad hoc as the communication mode
• Have the same network name (SSID)
Configure and manage
•
• Be on the same subnet and same channel
• Have the same 802.11 security settings
Infrastructure (recommended): On an infrastructure network, the device is set to
infrastructure communication mode and communicates with other devices on the
network, whether the devices are wired or wireless, through a WAP. WAPs
commonly act as routers or gateways on small networks.
Security settings
NOTE: For the available settings for the device, see Understand the network
configuration page.
For more information on wireless security, visit www.weca.net/opensection/pdf/
whitepaper_wi-fi_security4-29-03.pdf.
•
•
Network authentication: The device's factory default setting is 'Open,' which
does not require security for authorization or encryption. The other possible values
are 'OpenThenShared,' 'Shared,' and 'WPA-PSK' (Wi-Fi® Protected Access PreShared Key).
WPA increases the level of over-the-air data protection and access control on
existing and future Wi-Fi networks. It addresses all known weaknesses of WEP,
the original native security mechanism in the 802.11 standard.
WPA2 is the second generation of WPA security; it provides enterprise and
consumer Wi-Fi users with a high level of assurance that only authorized users
can access their wireless networks.
Data encryption:
• Wired Equivalent Privacy (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 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 a new encryption scheme, 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 in ad hoc mode.

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.
For an infrastructure network, position the WAP 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.

To add hardware addresses to a WAP
Other guidelines
To add hardware addresses to a WAP
MAC filtering is a security feature in which a WAP is configured with a list of MAC
addresses (also called "hardware addresses") of devices that are allowed to gain
access to the network through the WAP.
If the WAP does not have the hardware address of a device attempting to access the
network, the WAP denies the device access to the network.
If the WAP filters MAC addresses, then the device's MAC address must be added to
the WAP's list of accepted MAC addresses.
1. Print the network configuration page. For information on the network configuration
page, see Understand the network configuration page.
2. Open the WAP's configuration utility, and add the device's hardware address to the
list of accepted MAC addresses.
134
Configure and manage
Other guidelines
To keep the wireless network secure, follow these guidelines:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Use a password with at least 20 random characters. You can use up to 63
characters in a WPA password.
Avoid any common words or phrases, easy sequences of characters (such as all
1s), and personally-identifiable information for passwords. Always use random
strings composed of uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and if allowed,
special characters such as punctuation.
Change the password periodically.
Change the default 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.
Place the access point or router in the center of a room and not near a window.
Turn off administrative access over wireless if possible. If you do this, you need to
connect to the router with a wired 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.

Scanned image quality is poor
The original is a second-generation photo or picture
Reprinted photographs, such as those in newspapers or magazines, are printed by
using tiny dots of ink that make an interpretation of the original photograph, which
degrades the quality. Often, the ink dots form unwanted patterns that can be detected
when the image is scanned or printed or when the image appears on a screen. If the
Solve scan problems
171
Chapter 10
following suggestions do not solve the problem, you might need to use a better-quality
version of the original.
• To eliminate the patterns, try reducing the size of the image after scanning.
• Print the scanned image to see if the quality is better.
• Make sure that the resolution and color settings are correct for the type of scan job.
• For best results, use the flatbed scanner for scanning rather than the ADF.
• Text or images on the back of a two-sided original appear in the scan
Two-sided originals can "bleed" text or images from the back side to the scan if the
originals are printed on media that is too thin or too transparent.
• The image quality is better when printed
The image that appears on the screen is not always an accurate representation of
the quality of the scan.
• Try adjusting your computer monitor settings to use more colors (or levels of
gray). On Windows computers, you typically make this adjustment by opening
Display on the Windows control panel.
• Try adjusting the resolution and color settings.
• The scanned image is skewed (crooked)
The original might have been loaded incorrectly. Be sure to use the media guides
when you load the originals into the ADF. For more information, see Load the
originals.
• The scanned image shows blots, lines, vertical white stripes, or other defects
• If the scanner glass is dirty, the image produced does not have optimum
clarity. See Clean the device for cleaning instructions.
• The defects might be on the original and not a result of the scanning process.
• Graphics look different from the original
The graphics settings might not be suitable for the type of scan job that you are
performing. Try changing the graphics settings.
• Take steps to improve the scan quality
• Use the flatbed scanner to scan rather than the ADF.
• Use high-quality originals.
• Load the media correctly. If the media is loaded incorrectly, it might skew,
which causes unclear images. For more information, see Load the originals.
• Adjust the software settings according to how you plan to use the scanned
page.
• Use or make a carrier sheet to protect your originals.
• Clean the scanner glass. See Clean the scanner glass for more information.

Try connecting a working phone and phone cord to the telephone wall jack that
you are using for the device and check for a dial tone. If you do not hear a dial
tone, call your local telephone company for service.
Other equipment, which uses the same phone line as the device, might be in
use. For example, you cannot use the device for faxing if an extension phone
is off the hook, or if you are using a computer dial-up modem to send an e-mail
or access the Internet.
Check to see if another process has caused an error. Check the display or
your computer for an error message providing information about the problem
and how to solve it. If there is an error, the device will not send or receive a fax
until the error condition is resolved.
The phone line connection might be noisy. Phone lines with poor sound quality
(noise) can cause faxing problems. Check the sound quality of the phone line
by plugging a phone into the telephone wall jack and listening for static or other
noise. If you hear noise, turn Error Correction Mode (ECM) off and try faxing
again. For information about changing ECM, see the onscreen Help. If the
problem persists, contact your telephone company.
If you are using a digital subscriber line (DSL) service, make sure that you
have a DSL filter connected or you will not be able to fax successfully. For
more information, see Case B: Set up the device with DSL.
Make sure the device is not connected to a telephone wall jack that is set up
for digital phones. To check if your phone line is digital, connect a regular
analog phone to the line and listen for a dial tone. If you do not hear a normal
sounding dial tone, it might be a phone line set up for digital phones.
If you are using either a private branch exchange (PBX) or an integrated
services digital network (ISDN) converter/terminal adapter, make sure the
device is connected to the correct port and the terminal adapter is set to the
correct switch type for your country/region, if possible. For more information,
see Case C: Set up the device with a PBX phone system or an ISDN line.
If the device shares the same phone line with a DSL service, the DSL modem
might not be properly grounded. If the DSL modem is not properly grounded, it
can create noise on the phone line. Phone lines with poor sound quality (noise)
can cause faxing problems. You can check the sound quality of the phone line
by plugging a phone into the telephone wall jack and listening for static or other
noise. If you hear noise, turn off your DSL modem and completely remove
power for at least 15 minutes. Turn the DSL modem back on and listen to the
dial tone again.
NOTE: You might notice static on the phone line again in the future. If the
device stops sending and receiving faxes, repeat this process.
•
If the phone line is still noisy, contact your telephone company. For information
on turning your DSL modem off, contact your DSL provider for support.
If you are using a phone splitter, this can cause faxing problems. (A splitter is a

If you have a voice mail service at the same phone number you use for fax
calls, you must receive faxes manually, not automatically. This means that you
must be available to respond in person to incoming fax calls. For information
on setting up the device when you have a voice mail service, see Case F:
Shared voice/fax line with voice mail. For information on receiving faxes
manually, see Receive a fax manually.
If you have a computer dial-up modem on the same phone line with the device,
check to make sure that the software that came with your modem is not set to
receive faxes automatically. Modems that are set up to receive faxes
automatically take over the phone line to receive all incoming faxes, which
prevents the device from receiving fax calls.
If you have an answering machine on the same phone line with the device, you
might have one of the following problems:
• Your answering machine might not be set up properly with the device.
• Your outgoing message might be too long or too loud to allow the device to
detect fax tones, and the sending fax machine might disconnect.
• Your answering machine might not have enough quiet time after your
outgoing message to allow the device to detect fax tones. This problem is
most common with digital answering machines.
The following actions might help solve these problems:
• When you have an answering machine on the same phone line you use for
fax calls, try connecting the answering machine directly to the device as
described in Case I: Shared voice/fax line with answering machine.
• Make sure the device is set to receive faxes automatically. For information
on setting up the device to receive faxes automatically, see Receive a fax.
• Make sure the Rings to Answer setting is set to a greater number of rings
than the answering machine. For more information, see Set the number of
rings before answering.
• Disconnect the answering machine and then try receiving a fax. If faxing is
successful without the answering machine, the answering machine might
be causing the problem.
• Reconnect the answering machine and record your outgoing message
again. Record a message that is approximately 10 seconds in duration.
Speak slowly and at a low volume when recording your message. Leave at
least 5 seconds of silence at the end of the voice message. There should
be no background noise when recording this silent time. Try to receive a
fax again.
NOTE: Some digital answering machines might not retain the
recorded silence at the end of your outgoing message. Play back your
outgoing message to check.

If the device shares the same phone line with other types of phone equipment,
such as an answering machine, a computer dial-up modem, or a multi-port
switch box, the fax signal level might be reduced. The signal level can also be
reduced if you use a splitter or connect extra cables to extend the length of
your phone. A reduced fax signal can cause problems during fax reception.
To find out if other equipment is causing a problem, disconnect everything
except the device from the phone line, and then try to receive a fax. If you can
receive faxes successfully without the other equipment, one or more pieces of
the other equipment is causing problems; try adding them back one at a time
and receiving a fax each time, until you identify which equipment is causing the
problem.
If you have a special ring pattern for your fax phone number (using a distinctive
ring service through your telephone company), make sure that the Distinctive
Ring feature on the device is set to match. For more information, see Change
the answer ring pattern for distinctive ring.
The device cannot send faxes, but can receive faxes
Solution:
• The device might be dialing too fast or too soon. You might need to insert
some pauses in the number sequence. For example, if you need to access an
outside line before dialing the phone number, insert a pause following the
access number. If your number is 95555555, and 9 accesses an outside line,
you might insert pauses as follows: 9-555-5555. To enter a pause in the fax
number you are typing, press Redial/Pause, or press the Space (#) button
repeatedly, until a dash (-) appears on the display.
You can also send the fax using monitor dialing. This enables you to listen to
the phone line as you dial. You can set the pace of your dialing and respond to
prompts as you dial. For more information, see Send a fax using monitor dialing.
• The number you entered when sending the fax is not in the proper format or
the receiving fax machine is having problems. To check this, try calling the fax
number from a telephone and listen for fax tones. If you cannot hear fax tones,
the receiving fax machine might not be turned on or connected, or a voice mail
service could be interfering with the recipient's phone line. You can also ask
the recipient to check the receiving fax machine for any problems.

Maintain and troubleshoot
Fax tones are recorded on my answering machine
Solution:
• When you have an answering machine on the same phone line you use for fax
calls, try connecting the answering machine directly to the device as described
in Case I: Shared voice/fax line with answering machine. If you do not connect
the answering machine as recommended, fax tones might be recorded on your
answering machine.
• Make sure the device is set to receive faxes automatically and that the Rings
to Answer setting is correct. The number of rings to answer for the device
should be greater than the number of rings to answer for the answering
machine. If the answering machine and the device are set to the same number
of rings to answer, both devices answer the call and fax tones are recorded on
the answering machine.
• Set your answering machine to a low number of rings and the device to answer
in the maximum number of rings supported. (The maximum number of rings
varies by country/region.) In this setup, the answering machine answers the
call and the device monitors the line. If the device detects fax tones, the device
receives the fax. If the call is a voice call, the answering machine records the
