Step 6. Install Toner Cartridge
1 Remove the toner cartridge from its
packaging (save packaging for
possible cartridge storage). Open
the printer by lifting the top cover.
2 Rotate the cartridge and gently
shake it from side to side to
distribute the toner evenly inside the
cartridge.
3 Locate the sealing tape tab on the
end of the cartridge. Carefully bend
the tab back and forth until it
separates from the cartridge.
4 Firmly pull the tab straight out from
the cartridge to remove the entire
length of tape (22 in, or 56 cm).
Avoid touching any black toner on
the tape.
Note
If the tab separates from the tape,
grasp the tape and pull it out of the
cartridge.
5 Position the cartridge as shown with
the arrow pointing into the printer.
Slide the cartridge into the printer as
far as it will go.
If the cartridge is installed correctly, the
cover will close easily.
Note
If toner gets on your clothing, wipe it off
with a dry cloth and wash clothing in
cold water. (Hot water sets toner into
fabric.)

Getting Started Guide 11
Step 7. Load Trays
Trays 2 and 3
Trays 2 and 3 are 250-sheet trays. For
supported sizes of paper, see the
printer user’s guide.
1 Pull the tray completely out of the
printer.
2 If the tray is not already set to the
desired paper size, snap the left and
right guides into place to match the
width of the paper.
3 Locate the release tabs (indicated
by the two arrows).
Squeeze the blue tabs to release
them from the slots while sliding the
back section of the tray to the
desired paper size. Make sure the
tabs lock into the correct slots.
4 Load paper into the tray.
5 Make sure the paper is flat in the tray
at all four corners and below the tabs
on the guides. Gently slide the tray
back into the printer.
The printer automatically senses the
size of paper if the tray is adjusted
correctly.
Repeat these steps for Tray 3.
12 Getting Started Guide
EN
Tray 1
Tray 1 is a multi-purpose tray that holds up to 100 sheets of paper,
10 envelopes, or 20 index cards.
Tray 1 provides a convenient way to print envelopes, transparencies,
custom-sized paper, or other type of media without having to unload
the other trays.
Note
The printer may pull paper from Tray 1 first. To change this, see the
printer user’s guide.
Tray 1 Orientation
Generally, load paper with the side to be printed facing up, and the
top, short edge toward the printer. See the sections on letterhead,
envelope, and duplexing in the printer user’s guide for proper
orientation for specific jobs.

Step 11. Install Printing Software
The printer comes with printing software on a compact disc. The
printer drivers on this compact disc must be installed to take full
advantage of the printer features. If your computer does not have a
CD-ROM drive but you have access to one, you can copy the
compact disc onto diskettes for installation into your computer.
If you do not have access to a CD-ROM drive, a diskette is provided
with the basic printer drivers. (The diskette does not have all of the
software available on the compact disc.) The most recent drivers
are available on the Internet. Depending on the configuration of
Windows-driven computers, the installation program for the printer
software automatically checks the computer for Internet access to
obtain the latest software.
See the HP Support pages at the front of the printer user’s guide
and the Readme file on the diskette for additional information or to
order diskettes if you do not have Internet access.
Installing Network Software
If the printer is to be used on a Novell or Windows NT Network, the
networking software should be installed and configured on the
network before individual users install the printing software.
1 Load the HP JetAdmin software from the compact disc, and run it.
Note
At this time load only the HP Jet Admin software. Once you have
configured the printer on the network, load the additional HP printing
software.
2 See the HP JetDirect Print Server software installation guide and
the HP JetAdmin software to configure the printer for your
network.
