3
Turn off the printer, then disconnect the power cord from the back of the printer.
If you installed the optional HP Photosmart Internal Battery in the printer, remove
it, then replace the battery compartment cover.
Wipe the outside of the printer with a soft cloth that has been lightly moistened
with water.
Caution 1 Do not use any type of cleaning solution. Household cleaners and
detergents may damage the printer’s finish.
Caution 2 Do not clean the interior of the printer. Keep all fluids away from
the interior.
Cleaning the print cartridge
If you notice white lines or single-color streaks on the photos you print, the print
cartridge may need to be cleaned. Do not clean the cartridge more often than
necessary, since cleaning uses up ink.
1
Remove any memory cards from the memory card slots.
Caution Do not pull out a memory card while the Memory Card light is
flashing. For more information, see Removing a memory card.

If the print quality of the test page looks good, select No, then press OK.
HP Photosmart 320 series User's Guide
29
Chapter 5
You can clean the cartridge up to three times. Each successive cleaning is more
thorough and uses more ink.
If you complete all three levels of cleaning using this procedure and you still notice
white streaks or missing colors on the test page, you may need to clean the print
cartridge copper-colored contacts. For more information, see the following section.
Note If the cartridge or printer has been recently dropped, you may also see white
streaks or missing colors in your prints. This problem is temporary and clears
up within 24 hours.
Cleaning the print cartridge contacts
If you use the printer in a dusty environment, debris may accumulate on the coppercolored contacts and cause printing problems.
To clean the print cartridge contacts:
1
Gather the following items to clean the contacts:
–
–
2
3
Distilled water (tap water may contain contaminants that can damage the
print cartridge)
Cotton swabs or other soft, lint-free material that will not stick to the print
cartridge
Open the print cartridge door.
Remove the print cartridge and place it on a piece of paper with the ink nozzle
plate facing up. Be careful not to touch the copper-colored contacts or the ink
nozzle plate with your fingers.
Caution Do not leave the print cartridge outside the printer for more than
30 minutes. Ink nozzles exposed to the air longer than this may dry out
and cause printing problems.
4
5
Lightly moisten a cotton swab with distilled water and squeeze any excess water
from the swab.
Gently wipe the copper-colored contacts with the cotton swab.
Caution Do not touch the ink nozzle. Touching the ink nozzle will result
in clogs, ink failure, and bad electrical connections.

If the “x” still appears, replace the print cartridge.
Storing the printer and print cartridges
Protect the printer and print cartridges by storing them properly when you are not
using them.
Storing the printer
The printer is built to withstand long or short periods of inactivity.
●
●
●
Close the In and Out tray doors when the printer is not in use.
Store the printer indoors out of direct sunlight in a place without temperature
extremes.
If the printer and print cartridge have not been used for one month or more, clean
the print cartridge before printing. For more information, see Cleaning the print
cartridge.
Storing the print cartridges
When you store or transport the printer, always leave the active print cartridge inside
the printer. The printer stores the print cartridge in a protective cap during the powerdown cycle.
32
HP Photosmart 320 series
Caution Make sure the printer completes its power-down cycle before you
unplug the power cord or remove the internal battery. This allows the printer to
store the print cartridge properly.
Follow these tips to help maintain HP print cartridges and ensure consistent print
quality:
●
●
●
When you remove a print cartridge from the printer, store it in a print cartridge
protector to prevent the ink from drying out.
In some countries/regions the cartridge protector is not included with the printer,
but comes with the Gray Photo cartridge that can be purchased separately. In
other countries/regions, the protector is included with the printer.
Keep all unused print cartridges in their original sealed packages until they are
needed. Store print cartridges at room temperature (15–35 degrees C or 59–95
degrees F).
Do not remove the plastic tape covering the ink nozzles until you are ready to
install the print cartridge in the printer. If the plastic tape has been removed from
the print cartridge, do not attempt to reattach it. Reattaching the tape damages
the print cartridge.
Maintaining the quality of photo paper
For best results with photo paper, follow the guidelines in this section.
Storing photo paper
●
●
●
Store the photo paper in its original packaging or in a resealable plastic bag.
Store the packaged photo paper on a flat, cool, and dry surface.
Return unused photo paper to the plastic bag. Paper left in the printer or exposed
to the elements may curl.
Handling photo paper
●
●
Always hold photo paper by the edges to avoid fingerprints.
If the photo paper has curled edges, place it in its plastic storage bag and gently
bend it in the opposite direction of the curl until the paper lies flat.
Transporting the printer
It's easy to transport and set up the printer almost anywhere. Take it with you on
vacations and to family gatherings and social events to instantly print and share
photos with family and friends.
To make it even easier to print on the go, you can purchase these accessories:
●
●
●
HP Photosmart Internal Battery: Power the printer with a rechargeable battery
so you can print anywhere.
HP Photosmart Automobile DC Adapter: Power the printer from the cigarette
lighter in a car.
HP Photosmart Carrying Case for compact photo printers: Carry the printer and
printing supplies together in this convenient travel case.

The print cartridge may be running out of ink. Check the ink-level icon on the
printer screen, and replace the cartridge if necessary. For more information, see
Insert the cartridge.
You may have selected a low-resolution setting on the digital camera when you
took the photo. For better results in the future, set the digital camera to a higher
resolution.
Make sure you are using the right type of photo paper for the project. Use HPdesigned photo paper for best results. For more information, see Choosing the
right paper.
You may be printing on the wrong side of the paper. Make sure the paper is
loaded with the side to be printed facing up.
The print cartridge may need to be cleaned. For more information, see Cleaning

the print cartridge.
The photos I marked for printing in the digital camera do not print.
Some digital cameras, such as the HP 318 and HP 612, let you mark photos for
printing both in the camera's internal memory and on the memory card. If you mark
photos in the internal memory, and then move photos from the camera's internal
memory to the memory card, the marks do not transfer. Mark photos for printing after
you transfer them from the digital camera's internal memory to the memory card.
