Navigator or Microsoft's Internet Explorer) without installing any
software. You can use the Embedded Web Server to configure
JetDirect print servers, or view status information for the JetDirect
print server and the connected peripheral.
The JetDirect device is mapped to a unique URL and is accessible
from a web browser using the JetDirect IP address or hostname (this
can be bookmarked for easy continued access to the Embedded Web
Server’s home page).
Access the Embedded Web Server by going to:

Purchasing Paper and Other Media
HP LaserJet printers produce excellent print quality documents. You
can print on a variety of print media, such as paper (including up to
100% recycled fiber content paper), envelopes, labels, overhead
transparencies, and custom-sized media. Properties such as weight,
grain, and moisture content are important factors affecting printer
performance and output quality.
To achieve the best possible print quality, use only high-quality,
copier-grade paper. See Media Specifications for more details.
Note
Always test a sample of paper before purchasing large quantities.
Your paper supplier should understand the requirements specified
in the HP LaserJet Printer Family Print Media Guide. See Media
Specifications for more information. For ordering information, see
Supplementary Documentation, or go to http://www.hp.com/ljsupplies.

Printing on Custom-Sized Media or Cardstock
Postcards, 3 by 5 in. (index) cards, and other custom-sized media
can be printed from Tray 1. The minimum media size is 76 by
127 mm (3 by 5 in.) and the maximum media size is 216 by 356 mm
(8.5 by 14 in.).
Note
You may experience some paper jams when using any media with a
length less than 178 mm (7 in.). This may be caused by paper that has
been affected by environmental conditions. For optimum performance,
make sure you are storing and handling the paper correctly (see
Printing and Paper Storage Environment). Using media from another
manufacturer may also help.
Custom-Sized Media and Cardstock Guidelines:
!
Always insert the short-edge first into Tray 1. If you want to print
in landscape mode, make this selection through your software.
Inserting paper long-edge first may cause a paper jam.
!
Use the rear output bin to reduce curl.
!
Do not print on media smaller than 76 mm wide (3 in.) or 127 mm
(5 in.) long.

away from the edges of the media.
See Media Specifications for more information.
EN
Chapter 2 Printing Tasks 45
Printing on Both Sides of Paper (Duplexing)
The printer can automatically print on both sides of paper. This is
called duplexing or two-sided printing.
The duplexer supports letter, A4, 8.5 x 13, and legal paper sizes.
If you want to duplex paper other than the supported sizes or weights
(for example, paper heavier than 105 g/m2 (28 lb) or very thin paper),
you will have to go to the printer and reinsert the paper manually after
the first side has printed. You will also have to reinsert the paper
manually if you select Straight Paper Path in your printer driver.
Follow the instructions in the driver.
Guidelines for Printing Both Sides of Paper
CAUTION
Do not print on both sides of labels, transparencies, or vellum.
Damage to the printer and paper jamming might result.
To print on both sides of paper, make the selection from your software
application or printer driver (select Print on Both Sides from the
Finishing tab). For non-Windows operating systems, this feature
may be available through HP Web JetAdmin (see HP Web JetAdmin).
Note
When using the built-in duplexer, the paper you are printing will partially
come out of the top output bin. Do not grab the paper until duplexing
is complete.
46 Chapter 2 Printing Tasks
EN
Paper Orientation for Printing Both Sides of Paper

Printing on Letterhead or Preprinted Forms
Note
This section describes letterhead or preprinted forms orientation for
single-sided printing. For duplex (two-sided printing) orientation, see
paper orientation for Printing on Both Sides of Paper (Duplexing).
Tray 1 letterhead orientation: print-side up, top-edge toward
the printer.
Tray 2 or optional 250- or 500-sheet Tray 3 letterhead orientation:
print-side down, top-edge toward you.
EN
Chapter 2 Printing Tasks 49
Note
Do not use letterhead paper that is printed with low-temperature
inks, such as those used in some types of thermography.
Do not use raised or embossed letterhead.
The printer uses heat and pressure to fuse toner to the paper. Make
sure that any colored paper or preprinted forms use inks that are
compatible with this fusing temperature (200° C or 392° F for
0.1 second).
50 Chapter 2 Printing Tasks

Canceling a Print Job
A print job can be stopped from a software application, a print queue,
or the JOB CANCEL button.
!
If the printer has not started printing, first try to cancel the job
within the software application that sent the print job.
!
If the print job is waiting in a print queue or print spooler such as
the Printers group in Windows 95 or Print Monitor in Mac, delete
the job there.
!
If the print job is already printing, press the printer JOB CANCEL
button. The printer will finish printing any pages that are already
moving through the printer and delete the rest of the print job.
If the control panel status lights continue to cycle after a job has been
canceled, the computer is still sending the job to the printer. Either
delete the job from the print queue or wait until the computer has
finished sending data (the printer will return to the ready state, with
the Ready light on).
Job Cancel Tips
Pressing JOB CANCEL cancels only the current job in the printer. If
more than one print job is in printer memory, JOB CANCEL must be
pressed once for each job.

EN
Language
Click the down arrow, then select the language (for example; English,
French, German) that you want used in device generated reports,
such as the configuration report and the demo page.
Tray Lock
Tray Lock is a feature that allows you to “lock” a tray so that the only
time the printer will draw from that tray is when it is specifically
requested, or if a tray override was requested and all unlocked trays
are empty. This is useful when you want to put special paper in a tray,
such as letterhead. For example, if you are using “First Available Tray,”
for the paper source and you lock Tray 1, the printer will only draw
from the remaining trays, either Tray 2 or optional Tray 3, if it is
installed. You can still print from the locked tray, but you must specify
the source. See Selecting a Paper Source.
Note
The feature will not allow you to lock all the trays. One tray must be
“unlocked.”
Windows
1. Run the HP LaserJet Device Configuration or HP Web JetAdmin.
2. From the Tray Setup tab, select the tray you wish to lock.
Macintosh
For Macintosh computers, this setting is available in the
HP LaserJet Utility. (See Accessing the HP LaserJet Device
Configuration or HP LaserJet Utility).
EN
Chapter 2 Printing Tasks 59
Printing by Size of Paper
Note
For printing by type of paper, see Tray Lock.
You can configure the printer to select paper by size (such as letter or
A4), as opposed to source (a paper tray).
If you frequently use several different sizes of paper, once trays are
set up correctly using the HP LaserJet Device Configuration, you do
not have to check which size is loaded in each tray before you print.
To print by size of paper, do the following:
1. Be sure to adjust and load the trays correctly. (See the sections
on loading paper, starting with Loading Media into Tray 1.)
2. From the Tray Setup tab in the HP LaserJet Device Configuration,
select the paper size for each tray.
3. From the software or printer driver, select the desired size of
paper. From a Windows application, click File and select Page
Setup (software) or click File and select Print and then Properties
(printer driver).
Note
The size settings may also be configured from HP Web JetAdmin.
See HP Web JetAdmin.
Settings in the printer driver and software application override printer
settings made in the configuration utility. (Software application settings
override printer driver settings.)

Managing the UltraPrecise Toner Cartridge
HP Policy on Non-HP Toner Cartridges
Hewlett-Packard Company cannot recommend use of non-HP toner
cartridges, either new, refilled, or remanufactured. Because they
are not HP products, HP cannot influence their design or control
their quality.
Toner Cartridge Storage
Do not remove the toner cartridge from its package until you are
ready to use it. The shelf life of a cartridge in an unopened package
is approximately 2.5 years. The shelf life of a cartridge in an opened
package is approximately 6 months.
CAUTION
To prevent damage to the toner cartridge, do not expose it to light for
more than a few minutes.
Toner Cartridge Life Expectancy
The life of the toner cartridge depends on the amount of toner that
print jobs require. When printing text at 5% coverage, an HP LaserJet
2200 series toner cartridge lasts an average of 5,000 pages.
This assumes the print density is set to 3 and EconoMode is off.
(These are the default settings.)
Recycling Toner Cartridges
To install a new HP toner cartridge and recycle the used cartridge,
follow the instructions included in the new toner cartridge box.
See HP LaserJet Printing Supplies for more information on recycling
toner cartridges.
62 Chapter 3 Printer Tips and Maintenance
EN
Redistributing the Toner
1
2
When toner is low, faded or light areas
may appear on a printed page. You may
be able to temporarily improve print
quality by redistributing the toner. The
following procedure may allow you to
finish the current print job before
replacing the toner cartridge.
1
Open the top cover.
2
Remove the toner cartridge from
the printer.
WARNING!
Avoid reaching too far into the printer.
The adjacent fusing area may be hot!
3
CAUTION
To prevent damage, do not expose the
toner cartridge to light for more than a
few minutes.
3
Rotate the toner cartridge and
gently shake from side to side to
redistribute the toner. (Do not tip the
cartridge on end, or it might leak.)
CAUTION
If toner gets on your clothing or hands,
wipe it off with a dry cloth and wash
clothing in cold water. (Hot water sets
toner into fabric.)
Continued on the next page.

Reinsert the toner cartridge into the
printer and close the top cover.
If the print remains light, install a new
toner cartridge. (Follow the instructions
provided with the new toner cartridge.)
64 Chapter 3 Printer Tips and Maintenance
EN
Cleaning the Printer
To maintain print quality, follow the cleaning procedure on the
following pages every time the toner cartridge is changed or
whenever print quality problems occur. As much as possible,
keep the printer free from dust and debris.
CAUTION
!
Clean the outside of the printer with a lightly water-dampened
cloth.
!
Clean the inside with a dry, lint-free cloth.
Do not use ammonia-based cleaners on or around the printer. While
cleaning the printer, be careful not to touch the transfer roller (located
underneath the toner cartridge). Skin oils on the roller can cause print
quality problems.
Using the Printer Cleaning Process
During the printing process, paper, toner and dust particles can
accumulate inside the printer. Over time, this buildup can cause print
quality problems such as toner specks or smearing. This printer has a
cleaning mode that can correct and prevent these types of problems.
Engine Cleaning
This process uses a transparency from Tray 1 to remove dust and
toner from the paper path. Use this process if toner specks or dots
appear on printouts. This process will provide a blank page which
should be discarded.
EN
Chapter 3 Printer Tips and Maintenance 65
Note
For best results, use a transparency during this process. If a
transparency is not available, use copier grade paper and not
bond or rough paper.
Note
During the engine cleaning process, the printer pulls the transparency
into the printer and then stops. This is not a jam. The transparency
will be slowly stepped through the printer to complete the engine
cleaning.
To Start Engine Cleaning
1. Make sure the printer is turned on and in the ready state. Load a
transparency in Tray 1.
2. Press and hold the GO and JOB CANCEL buttons until all lights
flash. This will take about 10 seconds. Release the buttons when
the lights flash.
3. Press the GO button.
4. Discard the blank page produced from the engine cleaning
process.

Over time, particles of toner and paper
will begin to accumulate inside the
printer. This may cause print quality
problems during printing. Cleaning the
printer will eliminate or reduce these
problems.
WARNING!
Before cleaning the printer, turn the
printer off and unplug the power cable.
1
Open the top cover.
2
Remove the toner cartridge.
CAUTION
To prevent damage, do not expose the
toner cartridge to light for more than a
few minutes.
3
With a dry, lint-free cloth, wipe any
residue from the paper path area
and the toner cartridge cavity.
4
Replace the toner cartridge
and close the top cover. Plug in
the power cable, and turn the
printer on.

Solving Print Quality Problems
Print Quality Checklist
General print quality problems can be solved by following the
checklist below.
!
Check the printer driver to make sure you are using the
best available print quality option (see Choosing Print Quality
Settings).
!
Print using a different HP LaserJet 2200 printer driver.
!
Redistribute the toner in the toner cartridge (see Redistributing
the Toner).
!
Clean the inside of the printer (see Cleaning the Printer).
!
Check the paper type and quality (see Media Specifications).
!
Check to make sure EconoMode is off in the software (see Using
EconoMode or Draft Printing).
!
Troubleshoot general printing problems (see Troubleshooting
General Printing Problems).
!
Install a new HP toner cartridge, then check print quality again.
(See instructions provided with the toner cartridge.)
Note
If the page is totally blank (all white) check to make sure the sealing
tape is removed from the toner cartridge and ensure that the toner
cartridge is installed correctly.
Note
Newer printers have been optimized to print characters more
accurately. This may result in characters looking lighter or thinner
than you are used to having them print on your older printer.
Note
If the page is printing images darker than on an older printer, and you
want the images to match the older printer, in your printer driver, select
the Finishing tab, choose Print Quality, choose Custom, click on Details,
and deselect Print Images Lighter.

Light Print or Fade
If a vertical white streak or faded area appears on the page:
!
The toner supply is low. You may be able to temporarily extend
the toner cartridge life. See Redistributing the Toner. If this does
not improve the print quality, install a new HP toner cartridge.
!
The paper may not meet HP’s paper specifications (for example,
the paper is too moist or too rough). See Media Specifications.
!
If the whole page is light, the print density adjustment is too light
or EconoMode may be on. Adjust the print density and
EconoMode within the software driver. See Using EconoMode or
Draft Printing. For non-Windows operating systems, this feature
is also available in HP Web JetAdmin.
Toner Specks
!
The paper may not meet HP’s paper specifications (for example,
the paper is too moist or too rough). See Media Specifications.
!
The transfer roller may be dirty. See Internal Cleaning Procedure.
!
The paper path may need cleaning. See Engine Cleaning.
Dropouts
If faded areas, generally rounded, occur randomly on the page:
!
A single sheet of paper may be defective. Try reprinting the job.
!
The moisture content of the paper is uneven or the paper has
moist spots on its surface. Try paper from a different source.
See Media Specifications.
!
The paper lot is bad. The manufacturing processes can cause
some areas to reject toner. Try a different kind or brand of paper.
See Media Specifications.
!
The toner cartridge may be defective. See Vertical Repetitive
Defects.
!
If these steps do not correct the problem, contact an HPauthorized dealer or service representative. See HP Customer
Care (Service and Support) or Worldwide Sales and Service
Offices.
86 Chapter 4 Problem Solving
EN
Vertical Lines
If black or white vertical streaks appear on the page:
!
The photosensitive drum inside the toner cartridge has probably
been scratched or is worn out. Install a new HP toner cartridge.
Gray Background
If the amount of background toner shading becomes unacceptable,
the procedures described below may help to clear the condition:
!
Decrease the density setting through the HP LaserJet Device
Configuration (Windows) or from the HP LaserJet Utility
(Macintosh). This will decrease the amount of background
shading.
!
Change the paper to a lighter basis weight. See Media
Specifications.
!
Check the printer’s environment; very dry (low humidity)
conditions can increase the amount of background shading.
!
Install a new HP toner cartridge.
Toner Smear
!
If toner smears appear on the leading edge of the paper, the
paper guides are dirty. See Internal Cleaning Procedure.
!
Check the paper type and quality. See Media Specifications.
!
Try installing a new HP toner cartridge.
Loose Toner
EN
!
Clean the inside of the printer. See Internal Cleaning Procedure.
!

In the printer driver, select the Paper tab and set Optimize for:
to match the type of paper you are printing. Print speed may be
slower if you are using heavy paper. For non-Windows operating
systems, this feature is also available in HP Web JetAdmin.
Chapter 4 Problem Solving 87
Vertical Repetitive Defects
If marks repeatedly appear on the printed side of the page at even
intervals:
!
The toner cartridge may be damaged. The circumference of the
toner cartridge drum is 94 mm (3.7 in.). If a repetitive mark occurs
every 94 mm (3.7 in.) on the page, install a new HP toner
cartridge.
!
Internal parts may have toner on them. If the defects occur on the
back of the page, the problem will likely correct itself after a few
more pages.
!
In the printer driver, select the Paper tab and set Optimize for:
to match the type of paper you are printing. For non-Windows
operating systems, this feature is also available in
HP Web JetAdmin.
!
The fusing assembly may be damaged. Contact an HP-approved
service technician. See HP Customer Care (Service and
Support) or Worldwide Sales and Service Offices.
Misformed Characters
!
If characters are improperly formed, producing hollow images,
the paper may be too slick. Try a different paper type. See Media
Specifications.
!
If characters are improperly formed, producing a wavy effect, the
laser scanner may need service. Verify that it also occurs on a
demo page by pressing GO when the printer is ready. If you
need service, contact an HP-authorized dealer or service
representative. See Hewlett-Packard Limited Warranty
Statement. See HP Customer Care (Service and Support),
or Worldwide Sales and Service Offices.
Page Skew

!
Make sure the paper or other media is loaded correctly and that
the guides are not too tight or too loose against the paper stack.
See Loading Media into Tray 1, Loading Media into Tray 2 or
Optional 250-sheet Tray 3, or Loading Media into Optional 500sheet Tray 3.
88 Chapter 4 Problem Solving
EN
Curl or Wave
!
Check the paper type and quality. Both high temperature and
humidity will cause paper curl. See Media Specifications.
!
Turn over the stack of paper in the tray. Also try rotating the paper
180° in the input tray.
!
Open the rear door and try printing to the rear output bin.
Wrinkles or Creases
!
Make sure that paper is loaded properly.
!
Check the paper type and quality. See Media Specifications.
!
Open the rear door and try printing to the rear output bin.
!
Turn over the stack of paper in the tray or try rotating the paper
180° in the input tray.
Toner Scatter Outline
!
If large amounts of toner have scattered around the characters,
the paper may have high resistivity. (Small amounts of toner
scatter is normal for laser printing.) Try a different paper type.
See Media Specifications.
!
Turn over the stack of paper in the tray.
!
Use paper designed for laser printers. See Media Specifications.
Random Image Repetition
If an image that appears at the top of the page (in solid black) repeats
further down the page (in gray field), the toner may not have been
completely erased from the last job. (The repeated image may be
lighter or darker than the field it appears in.)
EN
!
Change the tone (darkness) of the field that the repeated image
appears in.
!
Change the order in which the images are printed. For example,
have the lighter image at the top of the page, and the darker
image further down the page.
!
From your software application, rotate the whole page 180° to
print the lighter image first.
!
If the defect occurs later in a print job, turn the printer off for ten
minutes, and then turn the printer on to restart the print job.

PPD allows you to print, but limits your access to printer
features.
8. In the Setup dialog box, click Select, and then click OK to return
to the Chooser.
Note
If you manually select a PPD, an icon might not appear next to the
selected printer in the Select a PostScript Printer box. In the Chooser,
click Setup, click Printer Info, and then click Update Info to bring up the
icon.
9. Close the Chooser.
Renaming the Printer
If you are going to rename the printer, do this before selecting the
printer in the Chooser. If you rename the printer after selecting it in
the Chooser, you will have to go back into the Chooser and reselect it.
Use the Set Printer Name feature in the HP LaserJet Utility to rename
the printer.

Troubleshooting PostScript (PS) Errors
The following situations are PS language specific and may occur
when several printer languages are being used.
Note
To receive a printed or screen displayed message when PS errors
occur, open the Print Options dialog box and click the desired selection
next to the PS Errors section. You can also access this from the Print
PS Errors check box in the HP LaserJet Device Configuration.
PS Errors
Symptom
Possible Cause
Solution
The job prints in Courier (the
printer’s default typeface)
instead of the typeface you
requested.
The requested typeface is not
downloaded. A personality
switch may have been
performed to print a PCL job
just before the PS printing job
was received.
Download the desired font and
send the print job again. Verify
the type and location of the
font. Download to printer if
applicable. Check with the
software documentation.
A legal page prints with
clipped margins.
Print job too complex.
You may need to print your job
at 600 dots per inch, reduce
the complexity of the page, or
install more memory.
A PS error page prints.
Print job may not be PS.
Make sure the print job is a PS
job. Check to see whether the
software application expected
a setup or PS header file to be
sent to the printer.

Service and Support
Availability
HP provides a variety of service and support options around the
world. Availability of these programs will vary depending upon your
location.
HP Express Exchange
1. The customer contacts the local HP Customer Care Center listed
in the product documentation. A technician troubleshoots the
situation and determines whether the printer has actually failed. If
so, the technician refers the customer to the HP Service Center.
2. A representative from the service center requests product and
customer information. In some regions, collateral may also be
requested.
3. HP ships a refurbished replacement unit to arrive the next day.
(Geographic distance might prevent next-day shipping.)
4. The customer sends the defective printer to Hewlett-Packard at
HP's expense.
Customers with on-site support service provided by HP should work
directly with the local HP Customer Care Center instead of following
the steps outlined here.
Exchanged units carry the remainder of the original unit’s warranty or
90 days, whichever is greater. The faster turnaround from HP Express
Exchange minimizes downtime over traditional service programs that
require you to ship the failed unit to the manufacturer, and then wait
for it to be repaired and returned. Because HP pays the shipping
charges, you incur no hidden costs for the service.

Guidelines for Repacking the Printer
CAUTION
!
Remove and retain any DIMMs (dual in-line memory modules)
installed in the printer.
!
Remove and retain any cables and optional accessories installed
in the printer.
Static electricity can damage DIMMs. When handling DIMMs, either
wear an antistatic wrist strap or frequently touch the surface of the
DIMMs’ antistatic package, then touch bare metal on the printer. To
remove the DIMMs see Installing Memory.
!
CAUTION
Remove and retain the toner cartridge.
To prevent damage to the toner cartridge, store the cartridge in its
original packing material, or store it so that it is not exposed to light.
!
Remove and retain the HP JetDirect EIO print server card.
!
Use the original shipping container and packing material, if
possible. (Shipping damage as a result of inadequate packing is
the customer’s responsibility.) If you have already disposed of the
printer’s packing material, contact a local mailing service for
information on repacking the printer.
!
If possible, include print samples and 50-100 sheets of paper or
other media that did not print correctly.
!
Include a completed copy of the Service Information Form.
!
HP recommends insuring the equipment for shipment.

HP Maintenance Agreements
HP has several types of maintenance agreements that meet a wide
range of support needs. Maintenance agreements are not part of the
standard warranty. Support services vary by area. Check with your

To provide you with the level of support best suited to your needs, HP
has on-site service agreements with three response times:
Priority On-Site Service
This agreement provides 4-hour service response to your site for calls
made during normal HP business hours.
Next-Day On-Site Service
This agreement provides support by the next working day following a
service request. Extended coverage hours and extended travel
beyond HP’s designated service zones are available on most on-site
agreements (for additional charges).
Weekly (Volume) On-Site Service
This agreement provides scheduled weekly on-site visits for
organizations with many HP products. This agreement is designated
for sites using 25 or more workstation products, including printers,
plotters, computers, and disk drives.

EN
Printing and Paper Storage Environment
Ideally, the printing and paper storage environment should be at or
near room temperature, and not too dry or too humid. Remember
paper is hygroscopic; it absorbs and loses moisture rapidly.
Heat works with humidity to damage paper. Heat causes the moisture
in paper to evaporate, while cold causes it to condense on the sheets.
Heating systems and air conditioners remove most of the humidity
from a room. As paper is opened and used, it loses moisture, causing
streaks and smudging. Humid weather or water coolers can cause
the humidity to increase in a room. As paper is opened and used it
absorbs any excess moisture, causing light print and dropouts. Also,
as paper loses and gains moisture it can distort. This can cause
paper jams.
As a result, paper storage and handling are as important as the
paper-making process itself. Paper storage environmental conditions
directly affect the feed operation.
Care should be taken not to purchase more paper than can be easily
used in a short time (about 3 months). Paper stored for long periods
may experience heat and moisture extremes, which can cause
damage. Planning is important to prevent damage to a large supply of
paper.
Unopened paper in sealed reams can remain stable for several
months before use. Opened packages of paper have more potential
for environmental damage, especially if they are not wrapped with a
moisture-proof barrier.
The paper storage environment should be properly maintained to
ensure optimum printer performance. The required condition is 20° to
24° C (68° to 75° F), with a relative humidity of 45% to 55%. The
following guidelines should be helpful when evaluating the paper's
storage environment:
EN
!
Paper should be stored at or near room temperature.
!
The air should not be too dry or too humid (due to the
hygroscopic properties of paper).
!
The best way to store an opened ream of paper is to rewrap it
tightly in its moisture-proof wrapping. If the printer environment is
subject to extremes, unwrap only the amount of paper to be used
during the day's operation to prevent unwanted moisture
changes.
Appendix B Media Specifications 139
Envelopes
Envelope construction is critical. Envelope fold lines can vary
considerably, not only between manufacturers, but also within a box
from the same manufacturer. Successful printing on envelopes
depends upon the quality of the envelopes. When selecting
envelopes, consider the following components:
!
Weight: The weight of the envelope paper should not exceed
105 g/m2 (24 lb) or jamming may occur.
!
Construction: Prior to printing, envelopes should lie flat with less
than 6 mm (0.25 in.) curl, and should not contain air.
!
Condition: Envelopes should not be wrinkled, nicked, or
otherwise damaged.
!
Temperature: You should use envelopes that are compatible with
the heat and pressure of the printer.
!
Size: You should use only envelopes within the following size
ranges.
Tray 1
Note
Minimum
Maximum
76 by 127 mm
(3 by 5 in.)
216 by 356 mm
(8.5 by 14 in.)
Use only Tray 1 to print envelopes.
You may experience some paper jams when using any media with a
length less than 178 mm (7 in.). This may be caused by paper that has
been affected by environmental conditions. For optimum performance,
make sure you are storing and handling the paper correctly (see
Printing and Paper Storage Environment).
In the printer driver select Optimize for: and choose envelopes in the
drop-down box (see Optimizing for Media Types). For non-Windows
operating systems, this feature is also available in HP Web JetAdmin.
140 Appendix B Media Specifications
EN
Envelopes with Double Side Seams
Double side-seam construction has vertical seams at both ends of the
envelope rather than diagonal seams. This style may be more likely to
wrinkle. Be sure the seam extends all the way to the corner of the
envelope as illustrated below.
Correct
Incorrect
Envelopes with Adhesive Strips or Flaps
Envelopes with a peel-off adhesive strip or with more than one flap
that folds over to seal must use adhesives compatible with the heat
and pressure in the printer. The extra flaps and strips might cause
wrinkling, creasing, or even jams and may even damage the fuser.

For the best print quality, position margins no closer than 15 mm
(0.6 in.) from the edges of the envelope.
Avoid printing over the area where the envelope’s seams meet.
Envelope Storage
Proper storage of envelopes helps contribute to print quality.
Envelopes should be stored flat. If air is trapped in an envelope,
creating an air bubble, then the envelope may wrinkle during printing.
For more information, see Printing on Envelopes.
142 Appendix B Media Specifications
EN
Labels
CAUTION
To avoid damaging the printer, use only labels recommended for laser
printers
To prevent serious jams, always use Tray 1 to print labels and always
use the rear output bin.
Never print on the same sheet of labels more than once or print on a
partial sheet of labels.
Label Construction
When selecting labels, consider the quality of each component:
!
Adhesives: The adhesive material should be stable at 200° C
(392° F), the printer’s fusing temperature.
!
Arrangement: Only use labels with no exposed backing between
them. Labels can peel off sheets with spaces between the labels,
causing serious jams.
!
Curl: Prior to printing, labels must lie flat with no more than
13 mm (.5 in.) of curl in any direction.
!
Condition: Do not use labels with wrinkles, bubbles, or other
indications of separation.
For more information, see Printing on Labels.

Checking Memory Installation
To verify that DIMMs are installed correctly:
1. Turn the printer on. Check that the printer control panel displays
the Ready light after the printer has gone through the startup
sequence. If an error message appears, a DIMM may have been
incorrectly installed. See Troubleshooting Control Panel
Messages.
2. Print a self test/configuration page by pressing GO and JOB
CANCEL simultaneously.
3. Check the Installed Personalities and Options section on the self
test/configuration page and compare it with the self
test/configuration page printed before the DIMM installation.
If the amount of recognized memory has not increased:

!
The DIMM may not be installed correctly (repeat the installation
procedure).
!
Try another DIMM slot.
!
The DIMM may be defective (try a new DIMM).

Printer
Commands
Overview
Most software applications do not require you to enter printer
commands. See your computer and software documentation to find
the method for entering printer commands, if needed.
PCL
PCL printer commands tell the printer which tasks to perform or which
fonts to use. This appendix provides a quick reference for users who
are already familiar with PCL command structure.
The PCL 5e printer commands are backward-compatible with
previous versions of PCL.
The PCL 6 printer commands take full advantage of the printer’s
features.
HP-GL/2
The printer has the ability to print vector graphics using the HP-GL/2
graphics language. Printing in the HP-GL/2 language requires that
the printer leave PCL language and enter HP-GL/2 mode, which can
be done by sending the proper PCL codes. Some software
applications switch languages through their drivers.
EN
Appendix D Printer Commands 151
PJL
HP's Printer Job Language (PJL) provides control above PCL and
other printer languages. The four major functions provided by PJL
are:
!
printer language switching
!
job separation
!
printer configuration
!
status readback from the printer
PJL commands may be used to change printer default settings.
Note
The table at the end of this appendix contains commonly used PCL 5e
commands.
152 Appendix D Printer Commands
EN
Understanding PCL Printer Command Syntax
Before using printer commands, compare these characters:
Lowercase l:
l
Uppercase O:
O
Number one:
1
Number 0:
0
Many printer commands use the lowercase letter l (l) and the number
one (1), or the uppercase letter O (O) and the number zero (0). These
characters may not appear on your screen as shown here. You must
use the exact character and case specified for PCL printer
commands.
The following illustration displays the elements of a typical printer
command (in this instance, a command for page orientation).
Escape character
(begins escape
sequence)
Value field (contains both
alpha and numeric characters)
Category of command
EN
Uppercase letter
(terminates escape
sequence)
Appendix D Printer Commands 153
Combining Escape Sequences
Escape sequences may be combined into one escape sequence
string. There are three important rules to follow when combining
code:
1. For each escape sequence, the first two characters after the ?
character must be the same.
2. When combining escape sequences, change the uppercase
(termination) character in each individual escape sequence to
lowercase.
3. The final character of the combined escape sequence must be
uppercase.
The following escape sequence string would be sent to the printer to
select legal paper, landscape orientation, and 8 lines per inch:
?&l3A?&l1O?&l8D
The following escape sequence sends the same printer commands
by combining them into a shorter sequence:
?&l3a1o8D
Entering Escape Characters
Printer commands always begin with the escape character (?).
The following table shows how the escape character can be entered
from various DOS software applications.

Selecting PCL Fonts
PCL printer commands for selecting fonts can be found on the PCL
Font List which can be printed from the HP LaserJet Device
Configuration (Windows) or the HP LaserJet utility (Macintosh). A
sample section is shown below. Notice the two variable boxes for
symbol set and point size:
These variables must be filled in or the printer will use defaults. For
example, if you want a symbol set that contains line-draw characters,
select the 10U (PC-8) or 12U (PC-850) symbol set. Other common
symbol set codes are listed in the Common PCL Printer Commands
table.
Note
Fonts are either “fixed” or “proportional” in spacing. The printer contains
both fixed fonts (Courier, Letter Gothic, and Lineprinter) and
proportional fonts (CG Times, Arial, Times New Roman, and others).
Fixed-spaced fonts are generally used in applications such as
spreadsheets and databases, where it is important for columns to line
up vertically. Proportional-spaced fonts are generally used in text and
word processing applications.
