The HP Image Zone software is installed on your computer when you set up your
HP all-in-one. For further information, see the Setup Guide that came with your device.
Access to the HP Image Zone software differs by operating system (OS). For example,
if you have a PC and are running Windows, the HP Image Zone software entry point is
the HP Director. If you have a Macintosh and are running OS X V10.1.5 or later, the
HP Image Zone software entry point is the HP Image Zone window. Regardless, the
entry point serves as the launching pad for the HP Image Zone software and services.
You can quickly and easily expand the functionality of your HP all-in-one by using the
HP Image Zone software. Look for boxes like this throughout the guide that provide
topic-specific tips and helpful information for your projects.
Access the HP Image Zone software (Windows)
Open the HP Director from the desktop icon, system tray icon, or the Start menu. The
HP Image Zone software features appear in the HP Director.
Note HP Image Zone software features are not available if you are using an
HP JetDirect 175x. For more information, see Connection information.

Load originals and load paper
This chapter provides instructions for loading originals in the automatic document
feeder or on the glass to copy, scan, or fax; choosing the best paper type for your job;
loading paper in the input tray; and avoiding paper jams.
Load originals
You can load an original for a copy, fax, or scan job in the automatic document feeder
or on the glass. Originals that are loaded in the automatic document feeder will
automatically be fed into the HP all-in-one.
Load an original in the automatic document feeder
You can copy, scan, or fax a multiple-page letter-, A4-, or legal-size document (up to 20
pages) by placing it in the document feeder tray.
Warning Do not load photos in the automatic document feeder; this might
cause damage to your photos.
Note Some features, such as the Fit to Page and Fill Entire Page copy features, do
not work when you load your originals in the automatic document feeder. For
more information, see Load an original on the glass.
To load an original in the automatic document feeder

Choose papers for printing and copying
You can use many types and sizes of paper in your HP all-in-one. Review the following
recommendations to get the best printing and copying quality. Whenever you change
paper types or sizes, remember to change those settings.
Recommended papers
If you want the best print quality, HP recommends using HP papers that are specifically
designed for the type of project you are printing. If you are printing photos, for example,
load glossy or matte photo paper in the input tray. If you are printing a brochure or
presentation, use a type of paper specifically designed for that purpose.
For more information about HP papers, see the onscreen HP Image Zone Help, or go
to www.hp.com/support.
Papers to avoid
Using paper that is too thin, paper that has a slick texture, or paper that stretches easily
can cause paper jams. Using paper that has a heavy texture or does not accept ink can
cause printed images to smear, bleed, or not fill in completely.

Prevent curled or wrinkled paper by storing all unused paper flat in a resealable
bag.
Remove printed papers from the output tray frequently.
Ensure that paper loaded in the input tray lays flat and the edges are not bent or
torn.
Do not combine different paper types and paper sizes in the input tray; the entire
stack of paper in the input tray must be the same size and type.
Adjust the paper-width guide in the input tray to fit snugly against all paper. Make
sure the paper-width guide does not bend the paper in the input tray.
Do not force paper too far forward in the input tray.

Use a PictBridge camera
The HP all-in-one supports the PictBridge standard, which lets you connect any
PictBridge-compatible digital camera to the camera port and print JPEG photos
contained on the memory card in the camera. The photos are printed directly from the
digital camera. For more information about printing from your camera, see the
documentation that came with your digital camera.

Make sure the HP all-in-one is turned on and that the initialization process is
finished.
Connect your PictBridge-compatible digital camera to the camera port on the front
of your HP all-in-one using the USB cable supplied with your camera.
Turn on your camera and make sure it is in PictBridge mode.
Note When the camera is connected correctly, the status light next to the camera port
blinks while the camera is being accessed. The light also stops blinking and
stays lit when printing from the camera.
If the camera is not PictBridge-compliant or is not in PictBridge mode, the status
light blinks amber and an error message displays on your computer monitor (if
you have the HP all-in-one software installed). Disconnect the camera, correct
the problem on the camera and reconnect. For more information about
PictBridge camera port troubleshooting, see the 6200 series Troubleshooting
section in the HP Image Zone Help.
After you successfully connect your PictBridge-compliant camera to the HP all-in-one,
you can print your photos. Make sure the size of the paper loaded in the HP all-in-one
matches the setting on your camera. If the paper size setting on your camera is set to
the default, the HP all-in-one uses the paper that is currently loaded in the input tray.
Refer to the user guide that came with your camera for detailed information on printing
from the camera.
Tip If your digital camera is an HP model that does not support PictBridge, you can
still print directly to the HP all-in-one. Connect the camera to the USB port on the
back of the HP all-in-one instead of to the camera port. Direct-printing from the
back port works with HP digital cameras only.

Use the copy features
The HP all-in-one allows you to produce high-quality color and black-and-white copies
on a variety of paper types, including transparencies. You can enlarge or reduce the
size of an original to fit a specific paper size, adjust the darkness and color intensity of
the copy, and use special features to make high-quality copies of photos, including 10
by 15 cm (4 by 6 inch) borderless copies.
This chapter provides instructions for increasing copy speed, enhancing copy quality,
setting the number of copies to print, guidelines for choosing the best paper type and
size for your job, and making iron-on transfers.

the other quality settings.
Normal delivers high-quality output and is the recommended setting for most of
your copying. Normal copies faster than Best.
Fast copies faster than the Normal setting. The text is comparable to the quality of
the Normal setting, but the graphics might be lower quality. The Fast setting uses

Use the scan features
Scanning is the process of converting text and pictures into an electronic format for
your computer. You can scan just about anything: photos, magazine articles, and text
documents, as long as you are careful not to scratch the glass on your HP all-in-one.
You can use the scanning features of your HP all-in-one to do the following:
●
●
●
●
●
Scan text from an article into your word processor and quote it in a report.
Print business cards and brochures by scanning a logo and using it in your
publishing software.
Send photos to friends and relatives by scanning your favorite prints and including
them in e-mail messages.
Create a photographic inventory of your house or office.
Archive treasured photos in an electronic scrapbook.
Note Scanning text (also known as optical character recognition or OCR) lets you
bring the content of magazine articles, books, and other printed matter into your
favorite word processor (and many other programs) as fully editable text.
Learning to do OCR right is important if you want to obtain the best results. Do
not expect scanned text documents to be letter-perfect the first time you use
your OCR software. Using OCR software is an art that takes time and practice to
master.
For more information about scanning documents, especially documents
containing both text and graphics, see the documentation that came with your
OCR software.
To use the scan features, your HP all-in-one and computer must be connected and
turned on. The HP all-in-one software must also be installed and running on your
computer prior to scanning. To verify that the HP all-in-one software is running on a
Windows PC, look for the HP all-in-one icon in the system tray at the lower right side of
the screen, near the time. On a Macintosh, the HP all-in-one software is always
running.
Note Closing the HP Windows system tray icon can cause your HP all-in-one to lose
some of its scan functionality and result in the No Connection error message. If
this happens, you can restore full functionality by restarting your computer or by
starting the HP Image Zone software.
For information about how to scan from the computer, and how to adjust, resize, rotate,
crop, and sharpen your scans, see the onscreen HP Image Zone Help that came with
your software.

The HP Image Zone has many tools that you can use to edit your scanned image. You
can improve the overall image quality by adjusting the brightness, sharpness, color
tone, or saturation. You can also crop, straighten, rotate, or resize the image. When the

After completing all steps in the Setup Guide, use the instructions in this chapter to
complete your fax setup. Please keep your Setup Guide for later use.
In this chapter, you will learn how to set up your HP all-in-one so that faxing works
successfully with equipment and services you might already have on the same phone
line as your HP all-in-one.
Before you begin setting up your HP all-in-one for faxing, determine which kind of phone
system your country/region uses. The instructions for setting up your HP all-in-one for
faxing differ depending whether you have a serial or parallel phone system.

Tip You can also check the end of the phone cord that came in the box with your

●
If the connector type on your shared telephone equipment (modems, phones, and
answering machines) does not allow a physical connection to the "2-EXT" port on
your HP all-in-one and instead must be connected at the telephone wall jack, you
probably have a serial-type telephone system. Check the table below to make sure
that your country/region does not appear in this list. If you are unsure which kind of
telephone system you have (serial or parallel), check with your telephone
company. This type of phone system uses a 4-wire phone cord to connect the
HP all-in-one to the telephone wall jack.
If your country/region is listed in the table, you probably have a parallel-type
telephone system. This type of phone system uses a 2-wire phone cord to connect
the HP all-in-one to the telephone wall jack.
Chapter 10
Choose the right fax setup for your home or office
To fax successfully, you need to know what types of equipment and services (if any)
share the same phone line with your HP all-in-one. This is important because you might
need to connect some of your existing office equipment directly to your HP all-in-one,
and you might also need to change some fax settings before you can fax successfully.

If you answered Yes, proceed directly to Case D: Fax with a distinctive ring service
on the same line. You do not need to continue answering questions.
If you answered No, please continue answering questions.
Are you unsure if you have distinctive ring? Many phone companies offer a
distinctive ring feature that allows you to have several phone numbers on one
phone line.
When you subscribe to this service, each phone number will have a different ring
pattern. For example, you can have single, double, and triple rings for the different
numbers. You might assign one phone number with a single ring to your voice
calls, and another phone number with double rings to your fax calls. This allows
you to tell the difference between voice and fax calls when the phone rings.

Case B: Set up your HP all-in-one with DSL
If you have a DSL service through your telephone company, use the instructions in this
section to connect a DSL filter between the telephone wall jack and your HP all-in-one.
The DSL filter removes the digital signal that can interfere with your HP all-in-one from
communicating properly with the phone line. (DSL might be called ADSL in your
country/region.)

If you are using either a PBX phone system or an ISDN converter/terminal adapter,
make sure you do the following:
●
56
If you are using either a PBX or an ISDN converter/terminal adaptor, connect the
HP all-in-one to the port that is designated for fax and phone use. Also, make sure
HP Officejet 6200 series all-in-one
that the terminal adapter is set to the correct switch type for your country/region, if
possible.
Note Some ISDN systems allow you to configure the ports for specific phone
equipment. For example, you might have assigned one port for telephone
and Group 3 fax and another port for multiple purposes. If you have
problems when connected to the fax/phone port of your ISDN converter, try
using the port designated for multiple purposes; it might be labeled "multicombi" or something similar.
●
If you are using a PBX phone system, set the call waiting tone to "off."
Caution Many digital PBX systems include a call-waiting tone that is
factory-set to "on." The call waiting tone will interfere with any fax
transmission, and you will not be able to send or receive faxes with your
HP all-in-one. Refer to the documentation that came with your PBX phone
system for instructions on how to turn off the call-waiting tone.
●
If you are using a PBX phone system, dial the number for an outside line before
dialing the fax number.
Make sure you use the supplied cord to connect from the telephone wall jack to
your HP all-in-one, you might not be able to fax successfully. This special phone

parallel splitter (also called a coupler) in order to send and receive faxes
successfully and use your PC modem. (A parallel splitter has one RJ-11 port on the
front and two RJ-11 ports on the back. Do not use a 2-line phone splitter, a serial
splitter, or a parallel splitter which has two RJ-11 ports on the front and a plug on
the back.) You will also need three additional phone cords. You can purchase a
parallel splitter and additional phone cords from an electronics store that carries
phone accessories.

When the phone rings, your answering machine will answer after the number of rings
you have set, and then play your recorded greeting. The HP all-in-one monitors the call
during this time, "listening" for fax tones. If incoming fax tones are detected, the HP allin-one will emit fax reception tones and receive the fax; if there are no fax tones, the
HP all-in-one stops monitoring the line and your answering machine can record a voice
message.
If you receive both voice calls and fax calls at the same phone number, and you also
have a PC modem and answering machine connected on this phone line, set up your
HP all-in-one as described in this section.
Since your PC modem shares the phone line with your HP all-in-one, you will not be
able to use both your PC modem and your HP all-in-one simultaneously. For example,
you cannot use your HP all-in-one for faxing if you are using your PC modem to send an
e-mail or access the Internet.
There are two different ways to set up your HP all-in-one with your computer based on
the number of phone ports on your computer. Before you begin, check your computer to
see if it has one or two phone ports:
●
●
If your computer has only one phone port, see the next section, Set up your
HP all-in-one to a computer with one phone port. You will need to purchase a
parallel splitter (also called a coupler) in order to send and receive faxes
successfully and use your PC modem. (A parallel splitter has one RJ-11 port on the
front and two RJ-11 ports on the back. Do not use a 2-line phone splitter, a serial
splitter, or a parallel splitter which has two RJ-11 ports on the front and a plug on
the back.) You will also need three additional phone cords. You can purchase a
parallel splitter and additional phone cords from an electronics store.
If your computer has two phone ports, see Set up your HP all-in-one to a computer
with two phone ports.

If you receive both voice calls and fax calls at the same phone number, use a PC
modem on the same phone line, and subscribe to a voice mail service through your
telephone company, set up your HP all-in-one as described in this section.
Note You cannot receive faxes automatically if you have a voice mail service at the
same phone number you use for fax calls. You must receive faxes manually; this
means you must be available to respond in person to incoming fax calls. If you
want to receive faxes automatically instead, contact your telephone company to
subscribe to a distinctive ring service, or to obtain a separate phone line for
faxing.
Since your PC modem shares the phone line with your HP all-in-one, you will not be
able to use both your PC modem and your HP all-in-one simultaneously. For example,

This feature is useful if the fax number you are trying to reach is busy or temporarily
unavailable. The HP all-in-one scans the originals into memory and sends them once it
is able to connect to the receiving fax machine. After the HP all-in-one scans the pages
into memory, you can immediately remove the originals from the document feeder tray.

Load your originals face up in the document feeder tray with the top of the page on

change it to the default. For more information, see Set new default settings.
Send a fax using monitor dialing
Monitor dialing allows you to dial a number from the control panel as you would dial a
regular telephone. This feature is useful when you want to use a calling card to charge
the call and you need to respond to tone prompts while dialing. It also allows you to dial
the number at your own pace, if necessary.
Note Make sure the volume is turned on, or you will not hear a dial tone. For

Receive a fax
Your HP all-in-one can receive faxes automatically or manually, depending on the
answer mode that you set. If the light next to the Auto Answer button is on, your
HP all-in-one automatically answers incoming calls and receive faxes. If the light is off,
you need to receive faxes manually. For more information on the answer mode, see
Set up the HP all-in-one to receive faxes.
Note If you installed a photo print cartridge for printing photos, you might want to
replace it with the black print cartridge when receiving faxes. See Work with print
cartridges.
Set the number of rings before answering
You can specify how many rings should occur before your HP all-in-one automatically
answers the incoming call.
Note This setting only applies if your HP all-in-one is set to receive faxes
automatically.
The Rings to Answer setting is important if you have an answering machine on the
same phone line as your HP all-in-one. The answering machine must answer the call
before your HP all-in-one. The number of rings to answer for the HP all-in-one should
be greater than the number of rings to answer for the answering machine.

Poll to receive a fax
Polling allows your HP all-in-one to ask another fax machine to send a fax that it has in
its queue. When you use the Poll to Receive feature, the HP all-in-one calls the
designated fax machine and requests the fax from it. The designated fax machine must
be set for polling and have a fax ready to send.
Note The HP all-in-one does not support polling pass codes. This is a security feature
that requires the receiving fax machine (your HP all-in-one) to provide a pass
code to the device it is polling in order to receive the fax. Make sure the device
you are polling does not have a pass code set up (or changed the default pass
code) or the HP all-in-one will not be able to receive the fax.

Enter text and symbols
You can enter text and symbols from the control panel by using the keypad on the
control panel when you set up speed-dial entries and the fax header information.
You can also enter symbols from the keypad when you dial a fax or phone number.
When the HP all-in-one dials the number, it will interpret the symbol and respond
accordingly. For example, if you enter a dash in the fax number, the HP all-in-one will
pause before dialing the remainder of the number. A pause is useful if you need to
access an outside line before dialing the fax number.

Change the answer ring pattern (distinctive ringing)
Many phone companies offer a distinctive ringing feature that allows you to have
several phone numbers on one phone line. When you subscribe to this service, each
number will have a different ring pattern. For example, you can have single, double, and
triple rings for the different numbers. You can set up your HP all-in-one to answer
incoming calls that have a specific ring pattern.
If you connect your HP all-in-one to a line with distinctive ringing, have your telephone
company assign one ring pattern to voice calls and another ring pattern to fax calls. We
recommend that you request double or triple rings for a fax number. When the HP allin-one detects the specified ring pattern, it will answer the call and receive the fax.
Use the fax features
For example, you might have your telephone company assign double rings to your fax
number and a single ring to your voice number. In this setup, set the Answer Ring
Pattern for your HP all-in-one to Double Rings. You can also set the Rings to Answer
setting to 3. When a call comes in with a double ring, the HP all-in-one answers it after
three rings and receives the fax.

Set backup fax reception
The HP all-in-one stores all received faxes in memory. If there is an error condition that
prevents the HP all-in-one from printing the faxes, Backup Fax Reception allows you
to continue receiving faxes. During the error condition, with Backup Fax Reception
enabled, the faxes are stored in memory.
Error conditions, such as the following, may prevent the HP all-in-one from printing
faxes:
●

●
●
There is no paper loaded in the input tray
There is a paper jam
The print-carriage access door is open
The print carriage is stalled
During normal operation (whether Backup Fax Reception is On or Off), the HP all-inone stores all faxes in memory. After the memory becomes full, the HP all-in-one
overwrites the oldest, printed faxes as it receives new faxes. If you want to delete all the
faxes in memory, turn off the HP all-in-one by pressing the On button.
Note If Backup Fax Reception is On and there is an error condition, the HP all-in-one
stores the faxes it receives in memory as "unprinted." All unprinted faxes remain
in memory until they are printed or deleted. When the memory becomes full of
unprinted faxes, the HP all-in-one will not receive any more fax calls until the
unprinted faxes are printed or deleted from memory. For information on printing

For example, if the HP all-in-one is out of paper and Backup Fax Reception is
enabled, all received faxes are stored in memory. After you load more paper, you can
print the faxes. If you disable this feature, the HP all-in-one will not answer incoming fax
calls until the error condition is resolved.

Use error correction mode
Error Correction Mode (ECM) eliminates data that is lost due to poor phone lines by
detecting errors that occur during transmission and automatically requesting
retransmission of the erroneous portion. Phone charges are unaffected, or might even
be reduced, on good phone lines. On poor phone lines, ECM increases sending time
and phone charges, but sends the data much more reliably. The default setting is on.
Turn ECM off only if it increases phone charges substantially, and you can accept
poorer quality in exchange for reduced charges.
The following rules apply to ECM:
●
●
●
If you turn ECM off, this applies only to faxes that you send. This does not apply to
faxes that you receive.
If you turn ECM off, set the Fax Speed to Medium. If the Fax Speed is set to Fast,
the fax will automatically be sent with ECM on. For information on changing the Fax
Speed, see Set the fax speed.
If you send a fax in color, the fax will be sent with ECM on, regardless of the option
currently set.

Reprint or delete the faxes in memory
You can reprint or delete the faxes stored in memory. You might need to reprint a fax in
memory if your HP all-in-one runs out of paper while receiving a fax. Or, if the memory
of the HP all-in-one becomes full, you might need to clear it in order to continue
receiving faxes.
Note The HP all-in-one stores all faxes it receives in memory, even when the faxes are
printed. This allows you to reprint the faxes later, if needed. After the memory
becomes full, the HP all-in-one overwrites the oldest, printed faxes as it receives
new faxes.

Fax over the Internet
You may subscribe to a low cost phone service that allows you to send and receive
faxes with your HP all-in-one by using the Internet. This method is called Fax over
Internet Protocol (FoIP). You probably use a FoIP service (provided by your telephone
company) if you:

Have an IP converter box that connects to the Internet and provides analog phone
ports for the fax connection.

Use the fax features
Note You will need to press Cancel for each stored fax in order to stop it from
printing.
Chapter 11
Note You can only send and receive faxes by connecting a phone cord to the port
labeled "1-LINE" on the HP all-in-one and not from the Ethernet port. This means
that your connection to the Internet must be done either through a converter box
(which supplies regular analog phone jacks for fax connections) or your
telephone company.
The FoIP service might not work properly when the HP all-in-one is sending and
receiving faxes at high speed (33600bps). If you experience problems sending and
receiving faxes, use a slower fax speed. You can do this by changing the Fax Speed
setting from High (the default) to Medium. For information on changing this setting, see
Set the fax speed.
You should also check with your telephone company to make sure their Internet phone
service supports faxing. If they do not support faxing, you will not be able to send and
receive faxes through the Internet.
Stop faxing
You can cancel a fax you are sending or receiving at any time.
To stop faxing from the control panel
➔
Press Cancel on the control panel to stop a fax you are sending or receiving. Look
for the Fax Cancelled message on the control panel display. If it does not appear,

Use HP Instant Share
HP Instant Share makes it easy to share photos with family and friends. Just scan a
photo, select a destination for your photo, and then send the photo on its way. You can
even upload your photos to an online photo album or an online photo finishing service.
Availability of services varies by country/region.
With HP Instant Share E-mail, family and friends always get photos they can view: no
more large downloads or images that are too big to open. An e-mail message with
thumbnail images of your photos is sent with a link to a secure Web page where family
and friends can easily view, share, print, and save the photos.
Overview
If your HP all-in-one is USB-connected, you can share photos with friends and relatives
using your device and the HP software installed on your computer. If you have a
Windows-based computer, use the HP Image Zone software; if you have a Macintosh,
use the HP Instant Share client application software.
Note A USB-connected device is an HP All-in-One that is connected to a computer by
means of a USB cable and relies on the computer for access to the Internet.
Use HP Instant Share to send images from your HP all-in-one to a destination of your
choice. The destination, for example, can be an e-mail address, an online photo album,
or an online photo finishing service. Availability of services varies by country/region.
Note You can also send images to a friend or relative's network-connected HP All-inOne or photo printer. To send to a device, you must have an HP Passport user ID
and password. The receiving device must be set up and registered with
HP Instant Share. You will also need to obtain the name the recipient assigned to
the receiving device. Further instructions are provided in step 6 in Send images
using your HP all-in-one.
You must have the following to use HP Instant Share with your HP all-in-one:

Maintain your HP all-in-one
The HP all-in-one requires little maintenance. Sometimes you might want to clean the
glass and lid backing to remove surface dust and ensure that your copies and scans
remain clear. You will also need to replace, align, or clean your print cartridges
occasionally. This chapter provides instructions for keeping your HP all-in-one in top
working condition. Perform these simple maintenance procedures as necessary.
Clean the HP all-in-one
Clean the glass
Fingerprints, smudges, hair, and dust on the main glass surface slow down
performance and affect the accuracy of features such as Fit to Page.
In addition to the main glass surface, you might also need to clean the small glass strip
inside the automatic document feeder. Streaks can occur if the glass strip inside the
automatic document feeder is dirty.
To clean the glass
1
Turn off the HP all-in-one, unplug the power cord, and raise the lid.
Note When you unplug the power cord, the date and time are erased. You will
need to reset the date and time later, when you plug the power cord back
in. Any faxes stored in memory are also erased.
2
Clean the glass with a soft cloth or sponge slightly moistened with a nonabrasive
glass cleaner.
Warning Do not use abrasives, acetone, benzene, or carbon tetrachloride
on the glass; they can damage it. Do not place or spray liquid directly on the
glass; the liquid might seep under the glass and damage the device.

Align the print cartridges
Maintain your HP all-in-one
The HP all-in-one prompts you to align cartridges every time you install or replace a
print cartridge. You can also align the print cartridges at any time from the control panel
or by using the HP Image Zone software on your computer. Aligning the print cartridges
ensures high-quality output.
Note If you remove and reinstall the same print cartridge, the HP all-in-one will not
prompt you to align the print cartridges. The HP all-in-one remembers the
alignment values for that print cartridge, so you do not need to realign the print
cartridges.
To align the print cartridges from the control panel when prompted
➔ Make sure you have letter or A4 unused plain white paper loaded in the input tray,
and then press OK.
The HP all-in-one prints a print cartridge alignment sheet and aligns the print
cartridges. Recycle or discard the page.
Note If you have colored paper loaded in the input tray when you align the print
cartridges, the alignment will fail. Load unused plain white paper into the
input tray, and then try the alignment again.
If the alignment fails again, you might have a defective sensor or print
cartridge. Contact HP Support. Go to www.hp.com/support. If prompted,

your HP all-in-one. For more information on connecting this phone cord and
setting up your HP all-in-one for faxing, see Fax setup.
If the supplied phone cord is not long enough, you can extend it. For
information see The phone cord that came with my HP all-in-one is not long
enough.
Try connecting a working phone and phone cord to the telephone wall jack
that you are using for the HP all-in-one and check for a dial tone. If you do not
hear a dial tone, contact your telephone company and have them check the
line.
Other equipment, which uses the same phone line as the HP all-in-one, might
be in use. For example, you cannot use your HP all-in-one for faxing if an
extension phone is off hook, or if you are using your PC modem to send an email or access the Internet.
The phone line connection might be noisy. Phone lines with poor sound quality
(noise) can cause faxing problems. Check the sound quality of the phone line
by plugging a phone into the telephone wall jack and listening for static or
other noise. If you hear noise, turn Error Correction Mode (ECM) off and try
faxing again. For information, see Use error correction mode. If the problem
persists, contact your telephone company.
If you are using a digital subscriber line (DSL) service, make sure that you
have a DSL filter connected or you will not be able to fax successfully. The
DSL filter removes the digital signal and allows your HP all-in-one to
communicate properly with the phone line. Obtain a DSL filter from your DSL
provider. If you already have a DSL filter, make sure it is connected correctly.
For information, see Case B: Set up your HP all-in-one with DSL.
Make sure your HP all-in-one is not connected to a telephone wall jack that is
set up for digital phones. To check if your phone line is digital, connect a
regular analog phone to the line and listen for a dial tone. If you do not hear a
normal sounding dial tone, it might be a phone line set up for digital phones.
If you are using either a private branch exchange (PBX) or an integrated
services digital network (ISDN) converter/terminal adapter, make sure the
HP all-in-one is connected to the port that is designated for fax and phone
use. Also, make sure that the terminal adapter is set to the correct switch type
for your country/region, if possible.
Note that some ISDN systems allow you to configure the ports for specific
phone equipment. For example, you might have assigned one port for
Chapter 15

telephone and Group 3 fax and another port for multiple purposes. If you
continue to have problems when connected to the fax/phone port, try using the
port designated for multiple purposes; it might be labeled "multi-combi" or
something similar. For information on setting up your HP all-in-one with a PBX
phone system or ISDN line, see Fax setup.
If your HP all-in-one shares the same phone line with a DSL service, the DSL
modem might not be properly grounded. If the DSL modem is not properly
grounded, it can create noise on the phone line. Phone lines with poor sound
quality (noise) can cause faxing problems. You can check the sound quality of
the phone line by plugging a phone into the telephone wall jack and listening
for static or other noise. If you hear noise, turn off your DSL modem and
completely remove power for at least 15 minutes. Turn the DSL modem back
on and listen to the dial tone again.
Note You might notice static on the phone line again in the future. If your
HP all-in-one stops sending and receiving faxes, repeat this process.

If the phone line is still noisy or for more information on turning your DSL
modem off, contact your DSL provider for support. You can also contact your
telephone company.

Your answering machine might not be set up properly with your HP all-inone.
Your outgoing message might be too long or too loud to allow the HP allin-one to detect fax tones, and the calling fax machine might disconnect.
Your answering machine might hang up too quickly after the outgoing
message plays if it does not detect someone trying to record a message,
as when a fax is calling. This prevents the HP all-in-one from detecting the
fax tones. This problem is most common with digital answering machines.

If you are not using a distinctive ring service, check to make sure that the
Answer Ring Pattern feature on your HP all-in-one is set to All Rings. For
information, see Change the answer ring pattern (distinctive ringing).
If Auto Answer is set to Off, you will need to manually receive faxes;
otherwise, your HP all-in-one will not receive the fax. For information on
receiving faxes manually, see Receive a fax manually.
If you have a voice mail service at the same phone number you use for fax
calls, you must receive faxes manually, not automatically. This means that you
must be available to respond in person to incoming fax calls. For information

Make sure the Rings to Answer setting is correct. Set your answering
machine to answer in 4 rings and your HP all-in-one to answer in the
maximum number of rings supported by your device. (The maximum
number of rings varies by country/region.) In this setup, the answering
machine will answer the call and the HP all-in-one will monitor the line. If
the HP all-in-one detects fax tones, the HP all-in-one will receive the fax.
If the call is a voice call, the answering machine will record the incoming
message. For information on setting the number of rings to answer, see
Set the number of rings before answering.
Disconnect the answering machine and then try receiving a fax. If you can
receive a fax without the answering machine, the answering machine
might be causing the problem.
Reconnect the answering machine and rerecord your outgoing message.
Make sure the message is as short as possible (no more than 10 seconds
long), and that you speak softly and slowly when recording it. At the end
of your outgoing message, record an additional 4 - 5 seconds of silence
with no background noise. Try to receive a fax again.

If your HP all-in-one shares the same phone line with other types of phone
equipment, such as an answering machine, a PC modem, or multi-port switch
box, the fax signal level might be reduced. This can cause problems during fax
reception.
To find out if other equipment is causing a problem, disconnect everything
except the HP all-in-one from the phone line, and then try to receive a fax. If
you can receive faxes successfully without the other equipment, one or more
pieces of the other equipment is causing problems; try adding them back one
at a time and receiving a fax each time, until you identify which equipment is
causing the problem.
If you have a special ring pattern for your fax phone number (using a distinctive
ring service through your telephone company), make sure that the Answer
Ring Pattern feature on your HP all-in-one is set to match. For example, if the
telephone company has assigned your fax number a double ring pattern, make
sure Double Rings is selected as the Answer Ring Pattern setting. For
information on changing this setting, see Change the answer ring pattern
(distinctive ringing).
Note The HP all-in-one cannot recognize some ring patterns, such as those
with alternating short and long ringing patterns. If you are having
problems with a ring pattern of this type, ask your telephone company to
assign a non-alternating ring pattern.

The FoIP service might not work properly when the HP all-in-one is sending
and receiving faxes at high speed (33600bps). If you experience problems
sending and receiving faxes, use a slower fax speed. You can do this by
changing the Fax Speed setting from High (the default) to Medium. For
information on changing this setting, see Set the fax speed.
You can only send and receive faxes by connecting a phone cord to the port
labeled "1-LINE" on the HP all-in-one and not from the Ethernet port. This
means that your connection to the Internet must be done either through a
HP Officejet 6200 series all-in-one

converter box (which supplies regular analog phone jacks for fax connections)
or your telephone company.
You should also check with your telephone company to make sure their
Internet phone service supports faxing. If they do not support faxing, you will
not be able to send and receive faxes through the Internet.

Warning If the paper tears when you are removing it from the rollers,
check the rollers and wheels for torn pieces of paper that might be

The automatic document feeder picks up too many pages or none at all
Cause
You need to clean the separator pad or rollers inside the automatic document
feeder. Pencil lead, wax, or ink can build up on the rollers and separator pad after

extensive use, or if you copy handwritten originals or originals that are heavy with
ink.

●
If the automatic document feeder does not pick up any pages at all, the rollers
inside the automatic document feeder need to be cleaned.
If the automatic document feeder picks up multiple pages instead of single
sheets, the separator pad inside the automatic document feeder needs to be
cleaned.
Solution
Load one or two sheets of unused plain white full-size paper into the document
feeder tray, and then press Start Copy Black to pull the pages through the
automatic document feeder. The plain paper releases and absorbs residue from the
rollers and separator pad.
If the problem persists, or the automatic document feeder does not pick up the plain
paper, you can clean the rollers and separator pad manually.

Chapter 17
Hewlett-Packard limited global warranty statement
The following information specifies the HP limited global warranty.
Extent of limited warranty
Hewlett-Packard ("HP") warrants to the end-user customer ("Customer") that each HP Officejet
6200 series all-in-one product ("Product"), including related software, accessories, media, and
supplies, shall be free from defects in material and workmanship for the duration, which begins on
the date of purchase by the Customer.
For each hardware Product, the duration of HP's limited warranty is one year for parts and one
year for labor. For all other Products, the duration of HP's limited warranty for both parts and labor
is ninety days.
For each software Product, HP's limited warranty applies only to a failure to execute programming
instructions. HP does not warrant that the operation of any Product shall be uninterrupted or error
free.
HP's limited warranty covers only those defects which arise as a result of normal use of a Product,
and does not cover any other problems, including those which arise as a result of (a) improper
maintenance or modification, (b) software, accessories, media, or supplies not provided or
supported by HP, or (c) operation outside the Product's specifications.
For any hardware Product, the use of a non-HP ink cartridge or a refilled ink cartridge does not
affect either the warranty to the Customer or any HP support contract with the Customer.
However, if Product failure or damage is attributable to the use of a non-HP or refilled ink
cartridge, HP shall charge its standard labor and materials charges to service the Product for the
failure or damage.
If HP receives, during the applicable warranty period, notice of a defect in any Product, HP shall
either repair or replace the defective Product, at HP's option. Where labor charges are not covered
by HP's limited warranty, repairs shall be at HP's standard charges for labor.
If HP is unable to repair or replace, as applicable, a defective Product which is covered by HP's
warranty, HP shall, within a reasonable time after being notified of the defect, refund the purchase
price for the Product.
HP shall have no obligation to repair, replace, or refund until the Customer returns the defective
Product to HP.
Any replacement product may be either new or like-new, provided that it has functionality at least
equal to that of the Product being replaced.
HP products, including each Product, may contain remanufactured parts, components, or materials
equivalent to new in performance.
HP's limited warranty for each Product is valid in any country/region or locality where the covered
HP product is distributed by HP. Contracts for additional warranty service, such as on-site service,
are available from any authorized HP service facility in countries/regions where the product is
distributed by HP or by an authorized representative.
Limitations of warranty

Notice to users of the U.S. telephone network: FCC requirements
Technical information
This equipment complies with FCC rules, Part 68. On this equipment is a label that contains,
among other information, the FCC Registration Number and Ringer Equivalent Number (REN) for
this equipment. If requested, provide this information to your telephone company.
An FCC compliant telephone cord and modular plug is provided with this equipment. This
equipment is designed to be connected to the telephone network or premises wiring using a
compatible modular jack which is Part 68 compliant. This equipment connects to the telephone
network through the following standard network interface jack: USOC RJ-11C.
The REN is useful to determine the quantity of devices you may connect to your telephone line and
still have all of those devices ring when your number is called. Too many devices on one line may
result in failure to ring in response to an incoming call. In most, but not all, areas the sum of the
RENs of all devices should not exceed five (5). To be certain of the number of devices you may
connect to your line, as determined by the REN, you should call your local telephone company to
determine the maximum REN for your calling area.
If this equipment causes harm to the telephone network, your telephone company may discontinue
your service temporarily. If possible, they will notify you in advance. If advance notice is not
practical, you will be notified as soon as possible. You will also be advised of your right to file a
complaint with the FCC. Your telephone company may make changes in its facilities, equipment,
operations, or procedures that could affect the proper operation of your equipment. If they do, you
will be given advance notice so you will have the opportunity to maintain uninterrupted service.
If you experience trouble with this equipment, please contact the manufacturer, or look elsewhere
in this manual, for warranty or repair information. Your telephone company may ask you to
disconnect this equipment from the network until the problem has been corrected or until you are
sure that the equipment is not malfunctioning.
This equipment may not be used on coin service provided by the telephone company. Connection
to party lines is subject to state tariffs. Contact your state public utility commission, public service
commission, or corporation commission for more information.
This equipment includes automatic dialing capability. When programming and/or making test calls
to emergency numbers:
●
Remain on the line and explain to the dispatcher the reason for the call.
●
Perform such activities in the off-peak hours, such as early morning or late evening.
Note The FCC hearing aid compatibility rules for telephones are not applicable to this
equipment.
The Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991 makes it unlawful for any person to use a
computer or other electronic device, including fax machines, to send any message unless such
message clearly contains in a margin at the top or bottom of each transmitted page or on the first
page of transmission, the date and time it is sent and an identification of the business, other entity,
or other individual sending the message and the telephone number of the sending machine or
such business, other entity, or individual. (The telephone number provided may not be a 900
number or any other number for which charges exceed local or long-distance transmission
charges.) In order to program this information into your fax machine, you should complete the
steps described in the software.
FCC statement
The United States Federal Communications Commission (in 47 CFR 15.105) has specified that the
following notice be brought to the attention of users of this product.
Declaration of Conformity: This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a
Class B digital device, pursuant to part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following
two conditions: (1) this device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept
any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation. Class B

communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular
installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception,
which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to
correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:
●
Reorient the receiving antenna.
●
Increase the separation between the equipment and the receiver.
●
Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is
connected.
●
Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
For more information, contact the Product Regulations Manager, Hewlett-Packard Company, San
Diego, (858) 655-4100.

Note à l’attention des utilisateurs du réseau téléphonique Canadien/ notice to users
of the Canadian telephone network
Cet appareil est conforme aux spécifications techniques des équipements terminaux d’Industrie
Canada. Le numéro d’enregistrement atteste de la conformité de l’appareil. L’abréviation IC qui
précède le numéro d’enregistrement indique que l’enregistrement a été effectué dans le cadre
d’une Déclaration de conformité stipulant que les spécifications techniques d’Industrie Canada ont
été respectées. Néanmoins, cette abréviation ne signifie en aucun cas que l’appareil a été validé
par Industrie Canada.
Pour leur propre sécurité, les utilisateurs doivent s’assurer que les prises électriques reliées à la
terre de la source d’alimentation, des lignes téléphoniques et du circuit métallique d’alimentation
en eau sont, le cas échéant, branchées les unes aux autres. Cette précaution est particulièrement
importante dans les zones rurales.
Le numéro REN (Ringer Equivalence Number) attribué à chaque appareil terminal fournit une
indication sur le nombre maximal de terminaux qui peuvent être connectés à une interface
téléphonique. La terminaison d’une interface peut se composer de n’importe quelle combinaison
d’appareils, à condition que le total des numéros REN ne dépasse pas 5.
Basé sur les résultats de tests FCC Partie 68, le numéro REN de ce produit est 0.2B.
This equipment meets the applicable Industry Canada Terminal Equipment Technical
Specifications. This is confirmed by the registration number. The abbreviation IC before the
registration number signifies that registration was performed based on a Declaration of Conformity
indicating that Industry Canada technical specifications were met. It does not imply that Industry
Canada approved the equipment.
Users should ensure for their own protection that the electrical ground connections of the power
utility, telephone lines and internal metallic water pipe system, if present, are connected together.
This precaution may be particularly important in rural areas.

Notice to users in the European Economic Area
Technical information
This product is designed to be connected to the analog Switched Telecommunication Networks
(PSTN) of the European Economic Area (EEA) countries/regions.
Network compatibility depends on customer selected settings, which must be reset to use the
equipment on a telephone network in a country/region other than where the product was
purchased. Contact the vendor or Hewlett-Packard Company if additional product support is
necessary.
This equipment has been certified by the manufacturer in accordance with Directive 1999/5/EC
(annex II) for Pan-European single-terminal connection to the public switched telephone network
(PSTN). However, due to differences between the individual PSTNs provided in different
countries, the approval does not, of itself, give an unconditional assurance of successful operation
on every PSTN network termination point.
