Setting color options to the default or Automatic setting typically produces the best possible print quality for color documents. The default or Automatic color adjustment option optimizes the neutralgray color treatment, halftones, and edge enhancements for each element in a document. For more information, see the printer driver online Help.

Select the Print in Grayscale option (Windows) or the Print Color as Gray option (Mac) from the printer driver to print a color document in black and white.

Setting description

Halftone

Halftone options affect the color output resolution and clarity.

Setting options

Smooth provides better results for large, solid-filled print areas and enhances photographs by smoothing color gradations.

Select this option when uniform and smooth area fills are the top priority.

Neutral Grays

Detail is useful for text and graphics that require sharp distinctions among lines or colors, or images that contain a pattern or a high level of detail. Select this option when sharp edges and details are the top priority.

Black Only generates neutral colors (grays and black) by using only black toner. This guarantees neutral colors without a color cast. This setting is best for documents and grayscale viewgraphs.

The Neutral Grays setting determines the method for creating gray colors used in text, graphics, and photographs.

4-Color generates neutral colors (grays and black) by combining all four toner colors. This method produces smoother gradients

Edge Control

The Edge Control setting determines how edges are rendered. Edge control has two components: adaptive halftoning and trapping. Adaptive halftoning increases edge sharpness. Trapping reduces the effect of color-plane misregistration by overlapping the edges of adjacent objects slightly.

Maximum is the most aggressive trapping setting. Adaptive halftoning is on.

Normal sets trapping at a medium level. Adaptive halftoning is on.

Light sets trapping at a minimal level. Adaptive halftoning is on.

Off turns off both trapping and adaptive halftoning.

Use the HP EasyColor option

If you are using the HP PCL 6 printer driver for Windows, the HP EasyColor technology automatically improves mixed-content documents that are printed from Microsoft Office programs. This technology scans documents and automatically adjusts photographic images in .JPEG or .PNG format.

HP EasyColor technology enhances the entire image at one time, rather than dividing it into several pieces, which results in improved color consistency, sharper details, and faster printing.

If you are using the HP Postscript printer driver for Mac, HP EasyColor technology scans all documents and automatically adjusts all photographic images with the same improved photographic results.

In the following example, the images on the left were created without using the HP EasyColor option.

The images on the right show the enhancements that result from using the HP EasyColor option.

The HP EasyColor option is enabled by default in both the HP PCL 6 printer driver and the HP Mac

Postscript printer driver, so you do not need to make manual color adjustments. To disable the option so you can manually adjust the color settings, open the Color tab in the Windows driver or the Color/

The process of matching product output color to a computer screen is quite complex because printers and computer monitors use different methods of producing color. Monitors display colors by light pixels using an RGB (red, green, blue) color process, but printers magenta, yellow, and black) process. print colors using a CMYK (cyan,

Several factors can influence the ability to match printed colors to those on a monitor. These factors include:

Paper

Printer colorants (inks or toners for example)

Printing process (inkjet, press, or laser technology for example)

Overhead lighting

Personal differences in perception of color

Software programs

Print drivers

Computer operating system

Monitors and monitor settings

Video cards and drivers

Operating environment (humidity for example)

For most situations, the best method for matching colors on the screen to the printed page is to print sRGB colors.

Sample book color matching

The process for matching product output to preprinted sample books and standard color references is complex. In general, you can obtain a reasonably good match to a sample book if the inks used to create the sample book are cyan, magenta, yellow, and black. These are usually referred to as process color sample books.

Some sample books are created from spot colors. Spot colors are specially created colorants. Many of these spot colors are outside of the range of the product. Most spot color sample books have

Interpret control-panel messages

Control-panel message types

Four types of control-panel messages can indicate the status of or problems with the product.

Message type

Status messages

Warning messages

Error messages

Critical-error messages

Description

Status messages reflect the current state of the product. They inform you of normal product operation and require no interaction to clear them. They change as the state of the product changes. Whenever the product is ready, not busy, and has no pending warning messages, the

Ready status message appears if the product is online.

Warning messages inform you of data and print errors. These messages typically alternate with the

Ready or status messages and remain until you press the OK button. Some warning messages are clearable. If the Clearable Warnings menu in the Display Settings menu is set to the Job option, the next print job clears these messages.

Error messages communicate that some action must be performed, such as adding paper or clearing a jam.

Some error messages are auto-continuable. If the Continuable Events menu in the Display Settings menu is set to the Auto-Continue option, the product continues normal operation after an autocontinuable error message appears for 10 seconds.

NOTE: Pressing any button during the 10-second auto-continuable error message overrides the auto-continue feature, and the button function takes precedence. For example, pressing the Stop button pauses printing and offers the option to cancel the print job.

Critical error messages inform you of a product failure. You can clear some of these messages by turning the product off and then on. These messages are not affected by the Auto-Continue setting.

If a critical error persists, service is required.

Control-panel messages

The product provides robust control panel messaging. When a message appears on the control panel, follow the on-screen instructions to resolve the issue. If the product displays an “Error” or

“Attention” message, and no steps are shown to resolve the issue, turn the product off then on.

Contact HP support if you continue to experience issues with the product.

Cause

The paper length and width guides are not adjusted correctly.

The media does not meet specifications.

Solution

Adjust the guides so they are against the paper stack.

You are using media that has already passed through a printer or copier.

An input tray is loaded incorrectly.

The media is skewed.

The media is binding or sticking together.

The media is removed before it settles into the output bin.

The paper is too heavy.

Use only media that meets HP specifications. See

The input-tray guides are not adjusted correctly. Adjust them so they hold the stack firmly in place without bending it.

Remove the media, flex it, rotate it 180 degrees, or flip it over. Reload the media into the input tray.

NOTE: Do not fan paper. Fanning can create static electricity, which can cause paper to stick together.

Wait until the page completely settles in the output bin before removing it.

Do not use paper that exceeds the supported weights for the input tray. See

Supported paper types and tray capacity on page 18 .

The media is in poor condition.

The internal rollers from the tray are not picking up the media.

Do not use paper that exceeds the supported weight for automatic duplex printing. See

Supported paper sizes for duplex printing on page 17
