need the following:
❑ A wireless 802.11 network that includes a wireless router or access point.
❑ A desktop computer or laptop with either wireless networking support, or a network
interface card (NIC). The computer must be connected to the wireless network that
you intend to install the HP All-in-One on.
❑ If you connect the HP All-in-One on a wireless network that has Internet access, HP
recommends that you use a wireless router (access point or base station) that uses
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP).
❑ Network name (SSID).
❑ WEP key or WPA Passphrase (if needed).
Connect to an integrated wireless WLAN 802.11 network
The Wireless Setup Wizard provides an easy way to connect the HP All-in-One to your

8
Network setup
supports this feature. See the documentation that came with your wireless router or
access point to find out if it supports using EasySetup and for additional setup instructions.
CAUTION: To prevent other users from accessing your wireless network, HP
strongly recommends using a password or passphrase (WPA or WEP security) and
a unique network name (SSID) for your wireless router. Your wireless router might
have been shipped with a default network name, which is typically the manufacturer
name. If you use the default network name, your network can be easily accessed by
other users using the same default network name (SSID). It also means that the
HP All-in-One might accidently connect to a different wireless network in your area
which uses the same network name. If this happens you will not be able to access
the HP All-in-One. For more information on how to change the network name, see
the documentation that came with your wireless router.
NOTE: Before connecting to a wireless infrastructure network, ensure that the
ethernet cable is not connected to the HP All-in-One.
NOTE: HP provides an online tool that might be able to find your wireless security
settings automatically. Go to: www.hp.com/go/networksetup.
To connect the HP All-in-One with the Wireless Setup Wizard

Check the estimated ink levels
You can easily check the ink supply level to determine how soon you might need to
replace an ink cartridge. The ink supply level shows an estimate of the amount of ink
remaining in the ink cartridges.
NOTE: The HP All-in-One can only detect the ink levels for genuine HP ink. The ink
levels in ink cartridges that are refilled or have been used in other devices might not
register accurately.
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 device 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.

Solution: In order to establish a good signal between the HP All-in-One and wireless router
(infrastructure) or computer (ad hoc), you might have to experiment a bit. Assuming the
equipment is functioning properly, try doing the following things separately or in combination:
•
If there is a long distance between your computer or wireless router and the HP All-in-One,
move them closer together.
•
If there are metal objects (such as a metal bookcase or refrigerator) in the transmission
path, clear the path between the HP All-in-One and the computer or wireless router.
•
If a cordless telephone, microwave, or other device that emits radio signals transmitting at
2.4 GHz is nearby, move it farther away to reduce radio interference.
•
If your computer or wireless router is near an external wall, move them away from the wall.
Cause: Your network name (SSID) may be at the bottom of the SSID list that is displayed
when you install the HP All-in-One on a wireless network.
Solution: Touch
to scroll to the bottom of the list. Infrastructure entries are listed first, ad
hoc last.
Cause: An Ethernet cable is connected to the HP All-in-One.
Solution: When an Ethernet cable is plugged into the HP All-in-One, the wireless radio turns
off. Unplug the Ethernet cable.
Weak signal
Cause: The HP All-in-One is too far away from the wireless router or there is interference.
Solution: In order to establish a good signal between the HP All-in-One and wireless router,
you might have to experiment a bit. Assuming the equipment is functioning properly, try doing
the following things separately or in combination:
•
If there is a long distance between your computer or wireless router and the HP All-in-One,
move them closer together.
•
If there are metal objects (such as a metal bookcase or refrigerator) in the transmission
path, clear the path between the HP All-in-One and the computer or wireless router.
•
If a cordless telephone, microwave, or other device that emits radio signals transmitting at
2.4 GHz is nearby, move it farther away to reduce radio interference.
•
If your computer or wireless router is near an external wall, move them away from the wall.
Cannot connect to network during setup
Cause: The equipment is not turned on.
Solution: Turn on the networked devices, such as the wireless router for an infrastructure
network, or the computer for an ad hoc network. For more information on how to turn on the
wireless router, see the documentation that came with your wireless router.
Cause: The HP All-in-One is not receiving a signal.
Solution: Move the wireless router and the HP All-in-One closer together. Then run the
wireless setup again.
For more information, see:
“Integrated wireless WLAN 802.11 network setup” on page 7
Cause: If you manually entered your network name (SSID), you might have entered it
incorrectly.
Solution: Run the wireless setup process again and enter your network name (SSID)
carefully. Remember that the SSID is case-sensitive.

Troubleshooting and support
Invalid WEP key during wireless setup
Cause: If you are using WEP security, you might have entered the WEP key incorrectly during
the wireless setup process.
Solution: During the wireless setup process, you might have entered the WEP key incorrectly.
Some wireless routers provide up to four WEP keys. The HP All-in-One uses the first WEP key
(selected by the wireless router as the default WEP key). Run the wireless setup process again
and be sure to use the first WEP key provided by the wireless router. Enter the WEP key exactly
as it appears in the wireless router settings. The WEP key is case sensitive.
If you do not know the WEP key, see the documentation that came with your wireless router for
information on how to access the router's Embedded Web Server. You can find the WEP key
by logging onto the router's Embedded Web Server using a computer on the wireless network.
Invalid passphrase during wireless setup
Cause: During the wireless setup process, you might have entered the WPA passphrase
incorrectly.
Solution: Run the wireless setup process again and enter the correct passphrase. The
passphrase is case-sensitive.
The Printer Not Found screen appears during installation
Cause: A firewall, anti-virus, or anti-spyware application is preventing the HP All-in-One from
accessing your computer.
Solution: Uninstall the HP All-in-One software, and then reboot your computer. Temporarily
disable anti-virus or anti-spyware applications, and then reinstall the HP All-in-One software.
You can re-enable your anti-virus or anti-spyware applications after installation is complete. If
you see firewall pop-up messages, you must always accept or allow the pop-up messages.
If the screen still appears, try uninstalling the HP All-in-One software, rebooting your computer,
and temporarily disabling your firewall before reinstalling the HP All-in-One software. You can
re-enable your firewall application after installation is complete. If you still see firewall pop-up
messages, you must always accept or allow the pop-up messages.
For more information, see the documentation provided with the firewall software.
Cause: A Virtual Private Network (VPN) is preventing the HP All-in-One from accessing your
computer.
Solution: Temporarily disable the VPN before proceeding with the installation.
NOTE: The HP All-in-One functionality will be limited during VPN sessions.
Cause: The HP All-in-One is not turned on.
Solution: Turn on the HP All-in-One.
Clear paper jams
If the HP All-in-One has a paper jam, first check the rear door. If the jammed paper is not in the rear
rollers, check the top door.

Troubleshooting and support
Cause: The setting for MAC address filtering might be enabled on your wireless router.
Solution: Disable MAC address filtering on your wireless router until the HP All-in-One has
successfully connected to your network. If you re-enable MAC address filtering on your wireless
router, make sure the MAC address of the HP All-in-One is on the list of acceptable MAC
addresses.

Information on ink cartridges and the print head
The following tips help maintain HP ink cartridges and ensure consistent print quality.
•
Keep all ink cartridges in the original sealed packages until they are needed.
•
Turn off the HP All-in-One from the control panel. Do not turn off the device by turning off a
power strip or unplugging the power cord from the HP All-in-One. If you improperly turn off the
HP All-in-One, the print head assembly might not return to the correct position.
•
Store ink cartridges at room temperature (15.6°-26.6° C or 60°-78° F).
•
HP recommends that you do not remove the ink cartridges from the HP All-in-One until you have
replacement cartridges available to install. If you are transporting the HP All-in-One make sure
you leave the ink cartridges installed to avoid ink leakage from the print head assembly.
•
Clean the print head (via the Printer Toolbox Software maintenance) when you notice a
significant decrease in print quality.
•
Do not clean the print head 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.
