Manage power
Use Sleep Mode, Auto-Off and Schedule Printer On/Off to conserve electricity.
Sleep mode
Power usage is reduced while in Sleep mode. After initial setup of printer, the printer will enter Sleep mode
after five minutes of inactivity.
Use the following instructions to change the period of inactivity before the printer sleeps.
1.
From the printer control panel, touch or swipe down the tab at the top of the screen to open the
Dashboard, touch
.
2.
Touch Sleep Mode, and then touch the desired option.
Auto-Off
This feature turns the printer off after 8 hours of inactivity to help reduce energy use. Auto-Off turns the
printer off completely, so you must use the Power button to turn on the printer again.
If your printer supports this energy saving feature, Auto-Off is automatically enabled or disabled depending
on printer capabilities and connection options. Even when Auto-Off is disabled, the printer enters Sleep mode
after 5 minutes of inactivity to help reduce energy use.
●
Auto-Off is enabled when the printer is turned on, if the printer does not have network, fax or Wi-Fi
Direct capability, or is not using these capabilities.
●
Auto-Off is disabled when a printer’s wireless or Wi-Fi Direct capability is turned on or when a printer
with fax, USB, or Ethernet network capability establishes a fax, USB, or Ethernet network connection.
Schedule On and Off
Use this feature to automatically turn the printer on or off on selected days. For example, you can schedule
the printer to turn on at 8 a.m. and turn off at 8 p.m. from Monday to Friday. In this way, you save energy
during the night and weekends.
Use the following instructions to schedule the day and time for On and Off.

off and on.
CAUTION:
Always turn the printer off properly, using either Schedule Off or
(the Power button) located
on the front left side of the printer.
If you improperly turn the printer off, the print carriage might not return to the correct position, causing
problems with the cartridges and print quality issues.
Never turn off the printer when cartridges are missing. HP recommends that you replace any missing
cartridges as soon as possible to avoid print quality issues, possible extra ink usage from the remaining
cartridges, or damage to the ink system.
Quiet Mode
Quiet Mode slows down printing to reduce overall noise without affecting print quality. It only works when
printing on plain paper. Additionally, Quiet Mode is disabled if you are printing using the best or presentation
print quality. To reduce printing noise, turn on Quiet Mode. To print at normal speed, turn Quiet Mode off.
Quiet Mode is off by default.
NOTE:
Quiet Mode does not work if you print photos or envelopes.
You can create a schedule by selecting the time when the printer prints in Quiet Mode. For example, you can
schedule the printer to be in Quiet Mode from 10 p.m. to 8 a.m. everyday.

Optimize Printing Supplies
To optimize printing supplies such as ink and paper, try the following:
●
Recycle used original HP ink cartridges through HP Planet Partners. For more information, visit
www.hp.com/recycle.
●
Optimize paper usage by printing on both sides of the paper.
●
Change the print quality in the printer driver to a draft setting. The draft setting uses less ink.
●
Do not clean the printhead unnecessarily. Doing so wastes ink and shortens the life of the cartridges.

is loaded in both Tray 1 and Tray 2.
●
Tray Lock: Lock a tray to prevent it from accidental use; for example, when you have loaded special
paper (such as letterhead or preprinted paper).
The printer will not use a locked tray even when the other tray is empty.

Guidelines for scanning documents as editable text
Use the following guidelines to ensure the software successfully converts your documents:
●
Make sure the scanner glass or document feeder window is clean.
Smudges or dust on the scanner glass or document feeder window can prevent the software from
converting the document to editable text.
●
Make sure the document is loaded correctly.
Make sure the original is properly loaded and that the document is not skewed.
48
Chapter 4 Copy and scan
ENWW
●
Make sure the text on the document is clear.
To successfully convert the document to editable text, the original must be clear and of high quality.
The following conditions can cause the software to not convert the document successfully:
●
—
The text on the original is faint or wrinkled.
—
The text is too small.
—
The structure of the document is too complex.
—
The text is tightly spaced. For example, if the text that the software converts has missing or
combined characters, "rn" might appear as "m."
—
The text is on a colored background. Colored backgrounds can cause images in the foreground to
blend too much.
Choose the correct profile.
Be sure to select a shortcut or preset that allows scanning as editable text. These options use scan
settings designed to maximize the quality of your OCR scan.
Windows: Use the Editable Text (OCR) or Save as PDF shortcuts.
OS X: Use the Documents with Text preset.
●
Save your file in the correct format.
If you want to extract just the text from the document, without any of the formatting of the original,
select a plain text format, such as Text (.txt) or TXT.
If you want to extract the text, as well as some of the formatting of the original, select Rich Text Format,
such as Rich Text (.rtf) or RTF, or searchable PDF format, such as Searchable PDF (.pdf) or Searchable
PDF .
Create a new scan shortcut (Windows)
You can create your own scan shortcut to make scanning easier. For example, you might want to regularly
scan and save photos in PNG format, rather than JPEG.
1.

part of the image.
●
Load your original print-side down on the scanner glass and align it with the marking on the rear left
corner of the glass.
●
To make a large copy of a small original, scan the original into the computer, resize the image in the
scanning software, and then print a copy of the enlarged image.
●
If you want to adjust scan size, output type, scan resolution, or file type, and so on, start scan from the
printer software.
●
To avoid incorrect or missing scanned text, make sure the brightness is set appropriately in the
software.
●
If you want to scan a document with several pages into one file instead of multiple files, start the scan
with the printer software instead of selecting Scan from the printer display, or use document feeder to
scan .

Send a fax in Error Correction Mode
Error Correction Mode (ECM) prevents loss of data 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 if you can accept poorer quality in exchange for reduced
charges.
If you turn ECM off:
●
The quality and transmission speed of faxes you send and receive are affected.
●
The Speed is automatically set to Medium .
●
You can no longer send or receive faxes in color.
To change the ECM setting from the control panel

Scroll to Error Correction Mode to touch to turn the feature on or off.
Receive a fax
You can receive faxes automatically or manually. If you turn off the Auto Answer option, you must receive
faxes manually. If you turn on the Auto Answer option (the default setting), the printer automatically answers
incoming calls and receives faxes after the number of rings that are specified by the Rings to Answer setting.
(The default Rings to Answer setting is five rings.)
If you receive a Legal-size or larger fax and the printer is not currently set to use Legal-size paper, the printer
reduces the fax so that it fits on the paper that is loaded. If you have disabled the Automatic Reduction
feature, the printer prints the fax on two pages.
NOTE: If you are copying a document when a fax arrives, the fax is stored in the printer memory until the
copying finishes.

On
The default setting. When Backup fax is On , the printer stores all received faxes in memory. This
enables you to reprint up to 30 of the most recently printed faxes if they are still saved in memory.
NOTE: When printer memory is low, it overwrites the oldest, printed faxes as it receives new
faxes. If the memory becomes full of unprinted faxes, the printer stops answering incoming fax
calls.
NOTE: If you receive a fax that is too large, such as a very detailed color photo, it might not be
stored in memory due to memory limitations.
56
On Error Only
Causes the printer to store faxes in memory only if an error condition exists that prevents the
printer from printing the faxes (for example, if the printer runs out of paper). The printer continues
to store incoming faxes as long as there is memory available. (If the memory becomes full, the
printer stops answering incoming fax calls.) When the error condition is resolved, the faxes stored
in memory print automatically, and then they are deleted from memory.
Off
Faxes are never stored in memory. For example, you might want to turn off Backup fax for security
purposes. If an error condition occurs that prevents the printer from printing (for example, the
printer runs out of paper), the printer stops answering incoming fax calls.

Reprint received faxes from memory
The received faxes that are not printed are stored in memory.
NOTE: After the memory becomes full, the printer cannot receive the new fax until you print or delete the
faxes from memory. You might also want to delete the faxes in memory for security or privacy purposes.
You can reprint up to 30 of the most recently printed faxes, if they are still in memory. For example, you might
need to reprint your faxes if you lost the copy of your last printout.

Set automatic reduction for incoming faxes
The Automatic Reduction setting determines what the printer does if it receives a fax that is too large for the
loaded paper size. This setting is turned on by default, so the image of the incoming fax is reduced to fit on
one page, if possible. If this feature is turned off, information that does not fit on the first page is printed on a
second page. Automatic Reduction is useful when you receive a fax larger than A4/Letter-size fax and A4/
Letter-size paper is loaded in the input tray.

Block unwanted fax numbers
If you subscribe to a caller ID service through your phone provider, you can block specific fax numbers so the
printer does not receive faxes received from those numbers. When an incoming fax call is received, the printer
compares the number to the list of junk fax numbers to determine if the call should be blocked. If the number
matches a number in the blocked fax numbers list, the fax is not received. (The maximum number of fax
numbers you can block varies by model.)
NOTE: This feature is not supported in all countries/regions. If it is not supported in your country/region,
Junk Fax Blocking does not appear in the Preferences menu.
NOTE: If no phone numbers are added in the Caller ID list, it is assumed that you are not subscribed to a
Caller ID service.

Set the number of rings before answering
If you turn on the Auto Answer setting, you can specify how many rings occur before incoming calls are
automatically answered.
The Rings to Answer setting is important if you have an answering machine on the same phone line as the
printer, because you want the answering machine to answer the phone before the printer does. The number
of rings to answer for the printer should be greater than the number of rings to answer for the answering
machine.
For example, set your answering machine to a low number of rings and the printer to answer in the maximum
number of rings. (The maximum number of rings varies by country/region.) In this setup, the answering
machine answers the call and the printer monitors the line. If the printer detects fax tones, it receives the fax.
If the call is a voice call, the answering machine records the incoming message.

Change the answer ring pattern for 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 number is assigned a different ring pattern. You can set
up the printer to answer incoming calls that have a specific ring pattern.
If you connect the printer to a line with distinctive ring, have your telephone company assign one ring pattern
to voice calls and another ring pattern to fax calls. HP recommends that you request double or triple rings for
a fax number. When the printer detects the specified ring pattern, it answers the call and receives the fax.
TIP: You can also use the Ring Pattern Detection feature in the printer control panel to set distinctive ring.
With this feature, the printer recognizes and records the ring pattern of an incoming call and, based on this
call, automatically determines the distinctive ring pattern assigned by your telephone company to fax calls.
If you do not have a distinctive ring service, use the default ring pattern, which is All Standard Rings .

Fax and digital phone services
Many telephone companies provide their customers with digital phone services, such as the following:
64
●
DSL: A Digital subscriber line (DSL) service through your telephone company. (DSL might be called ADSL
in your country/region.)
●
PBX: A private branch exchange (PBX) phone system.
Chapter 5 Fax
ENWW
●
ISDN: An integrated services digital network (ISDN) system.
●
VoIP: A low-cost phone service that allows you to send and receive faxes with your printer by using the
Internet. This method is called Fax on Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP).
For more information, see Fax on Voice over Internet Protocol.
HP printers are designed specifically for use with traditional analog phone services. If you are in a digital
phone environment (such as DSL/ADSL, PBX, or ISDN), you might need to use digital-to-analog filters or
converters when setting up the printer for faxing.
NOTE: HP does not guarantee that the printer will be compatible with all digital service lines or providers, in
all digital environments, or with all digital-to-analog converters. It is always recommended that you discuss
with the telephone company directly for the correct setup options based on their line services provided.
Fax on Voice over Internet Protocol
You might be able to subscribe to a low cost phone service that allows you to send and receive faxes with your
printer by using the Internet. This method is called Fax on Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP).
The following are indications you probably use a VoIP service:
●
Dial a special access code along with the fax number.
●
Have an IP converter box that connects to the Internet and provides analog phone ports for the fax
connection.
NOTE: You can only send and receive faxes by connecting a phone cord to the port labeled "1-LINE" on the
printer. 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.
TIP: Support for traditional fax transmission over any Internet protocol telephone systems are often
limited. If you experience problems faxing, try using a slower fax speed or disabling the fax error-correction
mode (ECM). However, if you turn off ECM, you cannot send and receive color faxes.
If you have questions about Internet faxing, contact your Internet faxing services support department or your
local service provider for further assistance.
Use reports
You can set up the printer to print error reports and confirmation reports automatically for each fax you send
and receive. You can also manually print system reports as required; these reports provide useful system
information about the printer.
By default, the printer is set to print a report only if there is a problem sending or receiving a fax. A
confirmation message that indicates whether a fax was successfully sent appears briefly on the control panel
display after each transaction.
NOTE: If the reports are not legible, you can check the estimated ink levels from the control panel or the HP
software. For more information, see Check the estimated ink levels.
NOTE: Ink level alerts and indicators provide estimates for planning purposes only. When you receive a lowink alert, consider having a replacement cartridge available to avoid possible printing delays. You do not need
to replace the cartridges until the print quality becomes unacceptable.
NOTE: Ensure that the printheads and cartridges are in good conditions and installed properly. For more
information, see Work with cartridges.

In this section, you learn how to set up the printer so that faxing works successfully with equipment and
services you might already have on the same phone line.
TIP: You can also use the Fax Setup Wizard (Windows) or HP Utility (OS X) to help you quickly set up some
important fax settings such as the answer mode and fax header information. You can access these tools
through the HP software you installed with the printer. After you run these tools, follow the procedures in this

Test fax setup
Set up faxing (parallel phone systems)
Before you begin setting up the printer for faxing, determine which kind of phone system your country/region
uses. The instructions for fax setup differ depending on whether you have a serial- or parallel-type phone
system:
●
68
If you do not see your country/region listed in the table, you probably have a serial-type phone system.
In a serial-type phone system, 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 the
printer. Instead, all equipment must be connected at the telephone wall jack.
Chapter 5 Fax
ENWW
NOTE: In some countries/regions that use serial-type phone systems, the phone cord that came with
the printer might have an additional wall plug attached to it. This enables you to connect other telecom
devices to the wall jack where you plug in the printer.
You might need to connect the phone cord to your country/region adapter.
●
If your country/region is listed in the table, you probably have a parallel-type telephone system. In
a parallel-type phone system, you are able to connect shared telephone equipment to the phone line by
using the "2-EXT" port on the back of the printer.
NOTE: If you have a parallel-type phone system, HP recommends you use the 2-wire phone cord
supplied with the printer to connect it to the telephone wall jack.

Case C: Set up the printer with a PBX phone system or an ISDN line
If you are using either a PBX phone system or an ISDN converter/terminal adapter, make sure you do the
following:
●
If you are using either a PBX or an ISDN converter/terminal adaptor, connect the printer 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: 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 "multi-combi" or something similar.
●
If you are using a PBX phone system, set the call waiting tone to "off."
NOTE: Many digital PBX systems include a call-waiting tone that is set to "on" by default. The call
waiting tone interferes with any fax transmission, and you cannot send or receive faxes with the printer.
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 the printer. If you do not,
you might not be able to fax successfully. This special phone cord is different from the phone cords you
might already have in your home or office. If the supplied phone cord is too short, you can purchase
a longer 2-wire phone cord from your local electronics store and extend it.

Now you need to decide how you want the printer to answer calls, automatically or manually:
●
If you set up the printer to answer calls automatically, it answers all incoming calls and receives
faxes. The printer cannot distinguish between fax and voice calls in this case; if you suspect the call
is a voice call, you need to answer it before the printer answers the call. To set up the printer to
answer calls automatically, turn on the Auto Answer setting.
●
If you set up the printer to answer faxes manually, you must be available to respond in person to
incoming fax calls or the printer cannot receive faxes. To set up the printer to answer calls
manually, turn off the Auto Answer setting.
Run a fax test.

Information on cartridges and the printhead
The following tips help maintain HP cartridges and ensure consistent print quality.
●
The instructions in this guide are for replacing cartridges, and are not intended for first time installation.
●
Keep all cartridges in the original sealed packages until they are needed.
●
Be sure to turn off the printer properly. For more information, see Turn the printer off .
●
Store cartridges at room temperature (15-35° C or 59-95° F).
●
Do not clean the printhead unnecessarily. This wastes ink and shortens the life of the cartridges.
●
Handle cartridges carefully. Dropping, jarring, or rough handling during installation can cause temporary
printing problems.
●
If you are transporting the printer, do the following to prevent ink leaking from the printer or other
damage from occurring to the printer:
—
Make sure you turn off the printer by pressing
(the Power button). Wait until all sounds of
internal motion stop before unplugging the printer.
—
Make sure you leave the cartridges installed.
—
The printer must be transported sitting flat; it should not be placed on its side, back, front, or top.
CAUTION: HP recommends that you replace any missing cartridges as soon as possible to avoid print quality
issues and possible extra ink usage or damage to the ink system. Never turn off the printer when cartridges
are missing.
NOTE: This printer is not designed to use continuous ink systems. To resume printing, remove continuous
ink system and install original HP (or compatible) cartridges.
94
Chapter 7 Work with cartridges
ENWW
NOTE: This printer is designed for ink cartridges to be used until they are empty. Refilling cartridges prior to
depletion might cause your printer to fail. If this happens, insert a new cartridge (either genuine HP or
compatible) to continue printing.

Check the estimated ink levels
Check the estimated ink levels
You can check the estimated ink levels from the printer software or from the printer control panel.
To check the estimated ink levels from the printer control panel
▲
From the printer control panel, touch or swipe down the tab at the top of the screen to open the
Dashboard, and then touch (Ink) to check the estimated ink levels.
NOTE: Ink level alerts and indicators provide estimates for planning purposes only. When you receive a lowink alert, consider having a replacement cartridge available to avoid possible printing delays. You do not have
to replace the cartridges until prompted to do so.
NOTE: If you have installed a refilled or remanufactured cartridge, or a cartridge that has been used in
another printer, the ink level indicator might be inaccurate or unavailable.
NOTE: Ink from the cartridges is used in the printing process in a number of different ways, including in the
initialization process, which prepares the printer and cartridges for printing, and in printhead servicing, which
keeps print nozzles clear and ink flowing smoothly. In addition, some residual ink is left in the cartridge after
it is used. For more information, see www.hp.com/go/inkusage .
Replace the cartridges
NOTE:
For information on recycling used ink supplies, see HP inkjet supplies recycling program.

Order cartridges
To order cartridges, go to www.hp.com . (At this time, some portions of the HP website are available in
English only.) Ordering cartridges online is not supported in all countries/regions. However, many countries
have information on ordering by telephone, locating a local store and printing a shopping list. In addition, you
can visit the www.hp.com/buy/supplies page to obtain information about purchasing HP products in your
country.
Use only the replacement cartridges that have the same cartridge number as the cartridge you are replacing.
You can find the cartridge number in the following places:
●
In the embedded web server, click the Tools tab, and then click Cartridge Level Gauge under Product
Information. For more information, see Embedded web server.
●
On the printer status report (see Understand printer reports).
●
On the label of the cartridge you are replacing.
●
On a sticker inside the printer. Open the cartridge access door to locate the sticker.
NOTE:
The Setup cartridge that comes with the printer is not available for separate purchase.
Store printing supplies
Cartridges can be left in the printer for extended periods of time. However, to assure optimal cartridge health,
be sure to turn off the printer properly when the printer is not in use.
For more information, see Turn the printer off .
Anonymous usage information storage
The HP cartridges used with this printer contain a memory chip that assists in the operation of the printer. In
addition, this memory chip stores a limited set of anonymous information about the usage of the printer,
which might include: the number of pages printed using the cartridge, the page coverage, frequency of
printing, and the printing modes used.
This information helps HP design future printers to meet our customers' printing needs. The data collected
from the cartridge memory chip does not contain information that can be used to identify a customer or user
of the cartridge or their printer.
HP collects a sampling of the memory chips from cartridges returned to HP's free return and recycling
program (HP Planet Partners: www.hp.com/recycle ). The memory chips from this sampling are read and
studied in order to improve future HP printers. HP partners who assist in recycling this cartridge might have
access to this data, as well.
Any third party possessing the cartridge might have access to the anonymous information on the memory
chip. If you prefer to not allow access to this information, you can render the chip inoperable. However, after
you render the memory chip inoperable, the cartridge cannot be used in an HP printer.
If you are concerned about providing this anonymous information, you can make this information inaccessible
by turning off the memory chip's ability to collect the printer's usage information.
To disable the usage information function

how to restore the defaults, see Restore original factory defaults and settings.
NOTE: You can continue to use the cartridge in the HP printer if you turn off the memory chip's ability to
collect the printer's usage information.
Cartridge warranty information
The HP cartridge warranty is applicable when the cartridge is used in its designated HP printing device. This
warranty does not cover HP ink cartridges that have been refilled, remanufactured, refurbished, misused, or
tampered with.
During the warranty period the cartridge is covered as long as the HP ink is not depleted and the end of
warranty date has not been reached. The end of warranty date, in YYYY/MM format, may be found on the
cartridge as indicated:

Learn how to avoid paper jams
To help avoid paper jams, follow these guidelines.
●
Remove printed papers from the output tray frequently.
●
Make sure that you are printing with paper that is not wrinkled, folded, or damaged.
●
Prevent curled or wrinkled paper by storing all unused paper flat in a resealable bag.
●
Do not use paper that is too thick or too thin for the printer.
●
Make sure that the trays are loaded correctly and are not too full. For more information, see Load paper.
●
Ensure that paper loaded in the input tray lays flat and the edges are not bent or torn.
●
Do not place too much paper in the document feeder tray. For information on the maximum number of
sheets allowed in the document feeder, see Specifications.
●
Do not mix 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 guides in the input tray to fit snugly against all paper. Make sure the paper-width
guides do not bend the paper in the input tray.
●
Adjust the paper-length guide in the input tray to fit snugly against all paper. Make sure the paperlength guide does not bend the paper in the input tray.
●
Do not force paper too far inside the input tray.
●
If you are printing on both sides of a page, do not print highly saturated images on light weight paper.
●
Use paper types that are recommended for the printer.
●
If the printer is about to run out of paper, allow the printer to run out of paper first, and then add paper.
Do not load paper when the printer is printing.
●
When removing the input tray, it is recommended to remove the tray completely from the printer to
make sure no paper is stuck at the rear of the tray. You might need to check the opening in the printer
where the tray was, and reach into the gap to remove any paper.

●
Verifies that the correct type of phone cord is connected to the printer
●
Checks that the phone cord is plugged into the correct port
●
Checks for a dial tone
●
Tests the status of your phone line connection
●
Checks for an active phone line
To test fax setup via the printer control panel

not long enough, you can use a longer phone cord to extend the length. You can purchase the cord at an
electronics store that carries phone accessories.
●
Other equipment that uses the same phone line as the printer might be in use. Make sure extension
phones (phones on the same phone line, but not connected to the printer) or other equipment are not in
use or off the hook. For example, you cannot use the printer for faxing if an extension phone is off the
hook, or if you are using a computer dial-up modem to send email or access the Internet.

Fax issues 129
After turning on the printer, HP recommends you wait five minutes before sending or receiving a fax. The
printer cannot send or receive faxes while it is initializing after being turned on.
●
If HP Digital Fax has been enabled, you might not be able to send or receive faxes if the fax memory is
full (limited by printer memory).
●
Make sure you used the phone cord supplied in the box with the printer to connect to the telephone wall
jack. One end of the phone cord should be connected to the port labeled 1-LINE on the back of the
printer and the other end to your telephone wall jack, as shown in the illustration.

●
Try connecting a working phone and phone cord to the telephone wall jack that you are using for the
printer and check for a dial tone. If you do not hear a dial tone, call your local telephone company for
service.
●
Other equipment, which uses the same phone line as the printer, might be in use. For example, you
cannot use the printer for faxing if an extension phone is off the hook, or if you are using a computer
dial-up modem to send an email or access the Internet.
●
Check to see if another process has caused an error. Check the display or your computer for an error
message providing information about the problem and how to solve it. If there is an error, the printer
cannot send or receive a fax until the error condition is resolved.
●
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. 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 cannot fax successfully.
●
Make sure the printer 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 printer is connected to the correct port and the terminal
adapter is set to the correct switch type for your country/region, if possible.
130 Chapter 10 Solve a problem
ENWW
●
If the printer shares the same phone line with a DSL service, the DSL modem might not be grounded
correctly. If the DSL modem is not grounded correctly, 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 the printer stops sending and
receiving faxes, repeat this process.
If the phone line is still noisy, contact your telephone company. For information on turning your DSL
modem off, contact your DSL provider for support.
●
If you are using a phone splitter, this can cause faxing problems. (A splitter is a two-cord connector that
plugs into a telephone wall jack.) Try removing the splitter and connecting the printer directly to the
telephone wall jack.
The printer cannot receive faxes, but can send faxes
●
If you are not using a distinctive ring service, check to make sure that the Distinctive Ring feature on the
printer is set to All Standard Rings .
●
If Auto Answer is set to Off , you need to receive faxes manually; otherwise, the printer cannot receive
the fax.
●
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.
●
If you have a computer dial-up modem on the same phone line with the printer, check to make sure that
the software that came with your modem is not set to receive faxes automatically. Modems that are set
up to receive faxes automatically take over the phone line to receive all incoming faxes, which prevents
the printer from receiving fax calls.
●
If you have an answering machine on the same phone line with the printer, you might have one of the
following problems:
—
Your answering machine might not be set up correctly with the printer.
—
Your outgoing message might be too long or too loud to allow the printer to detect fax tones, and
the sending fax machine might disconnect.
—
Your answering machine might not have enough quiet time after your outgoing message to allow
the printer to detect fax tones. This problem is most common with digital answering machines.
The following actions might help to solve these problems:
ENWW
—
When you have an answering machine on the same phone line you use for fax calls, try connecting
the answering machine directly to the printer.
—
Make sure the printer is set to receive faxes automatically.
—
Make sure the Rings to Answer setting is set to a greater number of rings than the answering
machine.
—
Disconnect the answering machine and then try receiving a fax. If faxing is successful without the
answering machine, the answering machine might be causing the problem.
—
Reconnect the answering machine and record your outgoing message again. Record a message
that is approximately 10 seconds in duration. Speak slowly and at a low volume when recording
Fax issues 131
your message. Leave at least 5 seconds of silence at the end of the voice message. There should be
no background noise when recording this silent time. Try to receive a fax again.
NOTE: Some digital answering machines might not retain the recorded silence at the end of your
outgoing message. Play back your outgoing message to check.
●
If the printer shares the same phone line with other types of phone equipment, such as an answering
machine, a computer dial-up modem, or a multi-port switch box, the fax signal level might be reduced.
The signal level can also be reduced if you use a splitter or connect extra cables to extend the length of
your phone. A reduced fax signal can cause problems during fax reception.
To find out if other equipment is causing a problem, disconnect everything except the printer 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 Distinctive Ring feature on the printer is set to match.
The printer cannot send faxes, but can receive faxes
●
The printer might be dialing too fast or too soon. You might need to insert some pauses in the number
sequence. For example, if you need to access an outside line before dialing the phone number, insert
a pause following the access number. If your number is 95555555, and 9 accesses an outside line, you
might insert pauses as follows: 9-555-5555. To enter a pause in the fax number you are typing, touch
the * repeatedly, until a dash (-) appears on the display.
You can also send the fax using monitor dialing. This enables you to listen to the phone line as you dial.
You can set the pace of your dialing and respond to prompts as you dial.
●
The number you entered when sending the fax is not in the proper format or the receiving fax machine is
having problems. To check this, try calling the fax number from a telephone and listen for fax tones. If
you cannot hear fax tones, the receiving fax machine might not be turned on or connected, or a voice
mail service could be interfering with the recipient's phone line. You can also ask the recipient to check
the receiving fax machine for any problems.
Fax tones are recorded on my answering machine
●
When you have an answering machine on the same phone line you use for fax calls, try connecting the
answering machine directly to the printer. If you do not connect the answering machine as
recommended, fax tones might be recorded on your answering machine.
●
Make sure the printer is set to receive faxes automatically and that the Rings to Answer setting is
correct. The number of rings to answer for the printer should be greater than the number of rings to
answer for the answering machine. If the answering machine and the printer are set to the same
number of rings to answer, both devices answer the call and fax tones are recorded on the answering
machine.
●
Set your answering machine to a low number of rings and the printer to answer in the maximum number
of rings supported. (The maximum number of rings varies by country/region.) In this setup, the
answering machine answers the call and the printer monitors the line. If the printer detects fax tones,
the printer receives the fax. If the call is a voice call, the answering machine records the incoming
message.

Maintain the printhead and cartridges
If you are experiencing problems with printing, you might have a problem with the printhead. You should
perform the procedures in the following sections only when directed to do so for resolving print quality
issues.
Performing the aligning and cleaning procedures unnecessarily can waste ink and shorten the life of the
cartridges.
●
Clean the printhead if your printed output is streaked or has any incorrect or missing colors.
There are three stages of cleaning. Each stage lasts about two minutes, uses one sheet of paper, and
uses an increasing amount of ink. After each stage, review the quality of the printed page. You should
only initiate the next phase of cleaning if the print quality is poor.
If print quality still seems poor after you complete all stages of cleaning, try aligning the printhead. If
print quality problems persist after cleaning and aligning, contact HP support. For more information, see
HP support.
●
ENWW
Align the printhead when the printer status page shows streaking or white lines through any of the
blocks of color, or if you are having print quality issues with your printouts.
Maintain the printer 139
The printer automatically aligns the printhead during the initial setup.
NOTE: Cleaning uses ink, so clean the printhead only when necessary. The cleaning process takes a few
minutes. Some noise might be generated in the process.
Always use the Power button to turn off the printer. Turning the printer off improperly can cause print quality
problems.
