Manage Power
Optimize Printing Supplies
Manage Power
To conserve electricity, the printer comes with the following features:
Sleep mode
Power usage is reduced while in Sleep mode. After initial setup of printer, the printer goes into low-power mode
after 5 minutes of inactivity.
To change the time to Sleep mode
▲
From the printer control panel, touch the
(eco button), touch Sleep, and then touch the desired option.
NOTE: If you change your country or region from the printer control panel, the time to sleep mode is
automatcially set to the default, which is 5 minutes.
Schedule On and Off
Use the printer's Schedule On and Off feature, and then select the days and time you want the printer to turn on
and turn off automatically. 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 will save energy during the night and weekends.
To configure the printer's Schedule On and Off feature
▲
From the printer control panel, touch the
time to turn on and off the printer.
(eco button), touch Schedule On and Off, and then set the
CAUTION: HP recommends that you replace a missing ink cartridge 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 a
cartridge is missing.
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. If the printer has an HP automatic two-sided
printing accessory (duplexer), see Print on both sides (duplexing). Otherwise, you can first print just the odd
pages, flip the pages over, and then print just the even pages.
Save ink and paper when printing web content with HP Smart Print. For more information, visit
www.hp.com/go/smartprint.
Change the print mode 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.

Guidelines for scanning documents as editable text
To ensure that the software can convert your documents successfully, do the following:
•
•
•
•
•
Make sure the scanner glass or ADF window is clean.
When the printer scans the document, smudges or dust on the scanner glass or ADF window can be
scanned, as well, and can prevent the software from converting the document to editable text.
Make sure the document is loaded correctly.
When scanning documents as editable text from the ADF, the original must be loaded into the ADF with the
top forward and face up. When scanning from the scanner glass, the original must be loaded with the top
facing the right edge of the scanner glass.
Also, make sure the document is not skewed. For more information, see Load an original on the scanner
glass or Load an original in the automatic document feeder (ADF).
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. In Windows, use the Editable Text (OCR) or Save as
PDF shortcuts. In Mac OS X, use the Documents 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 (Searchable PDF (.pdf) or Searchable PDF).

Send a fax manually from a phone
Sending a fax manually allows you to make a phone call and talk with the recipient before you send the fax. This
is useful if you want to inform the recipient that you are going to send them a fax before sending it. When you
send a fax manually, you can hear the dial tones, telephone prompts, or other sounds through the handset on
your telephone. This makes it easy for you to use a calling card to send your fax.
Depending on how the recipient has their fax machine set up, the recipient might answer the phone, or the fax
machine might take the call. If a person answers the phone, you can speak with the recipient before sending the

want to continue speaking with the recipient, remain on the line until the fax transmission is complete.
Send a fax using monitor dialing
Monitor dialing allows you to dial a number from the printer control panel as you would dial a regular telephone.
When you send a fax using monitor dialing, you can hear the dial tones, telephone prompts, or other sounds
through the speakers on the printer. This enables you to respond to prompts while dialing, as well as control the
pace of your dialing.
TIP: If you are using a calling card and do not enter your PIN fast enough, the printer might start sending fax
tones too soon and cause your PIN not to be recognized by the calling card service. If this is the case, you
can create a speed dial entry to store the PIN for your calling card. For more information, see Set up speeddial entries.
NOTE: Make sure the volume is turned on to hear a dial tone.

If the printer detects an original loaded in the automatic document feeder, it sends the document to each
number in the group speed dial entry.
NOTE: You can only use group speed dial entries to send faxes in black and white, because of
memory limitations. The printer scans the fax into memory then dials the first number. When
a connection is made, it sends the fax and dials the next number. If a number is busy or not answering,
the printer follows the settings for Busy Redial and No Answer Redial. If a connection cannot be
made, the next number is dialed and an error report is generated.
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.
Before turning the ECM setting off, consider the following. If you turn ECM off:
•
•
•
The quality and transmission speed of faxes you send and receive are affected.
The Fax 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
1.
From the printer control panel, touch (Right arrow), and then touch Setup.
2.
Touch Fax Setup, and then select Advanced Fax Setup.
3.
Select Error Correction Mode.
4.
Select 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. This can reduce the number of fax pages stored in memory.

5.
When you hear fax tones from a sending fax machine, do the following:
a.
Touch Fax, and then select Black or Color.
b.
After the printer begins to receive the fax, you can hang up the phone or remain on the line. The
phone line is silent during fax transmission.
Set up backup fax
Depending on your preference and security requirements, you can set up the printer to store all the faxes it
receives, only the faxes it receives while the printer is in an error condition, or none of the faxes it receives.
To set backup fax from the printer control panel
1.
Touch (Right arrow), and then select Setup.
2.
Touch Fax Setup, and then select Advanced Fax Setup.
3.
Touch Backup Fax Reception.
4.
Touch the required setting.
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: 1 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: 2 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.
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.

Chapter 5
Reprint received faxes from memory
If you set the Backup fax mode to On, the received faxes are stored in memory, whether the printer has an error
condition or not.
NOTE: After the memory becomes full, the oldest, printed faxes are overwritten as new faxes are received. If
all the stored faxes are unprinted, the printer does not receive any fax calls until you print or delete the faxes
from memory. You might also want to delete the faxes in memory for security or privacy purposes.
Depending on the sizes of the faxes in memory, you can reprint up to eight 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.
To reprint faxes in memory from the printer control panel
1.
Make sure you have paper loaded in the main tray. For more information, see Load paper.
2.
Touch (Right arrow), and then touch Setup.
3.

The faxes are printed in the reverse order from which they were received with the most recently received
fax printed first, and so on.
4.
If you want to stop reprinting the faxes in memory, touch the (Cancel button).
Poll to receive a fax
Polling allows the printer to ask another fax machine to send a fax that it has in its queue. When you use the Poll
to Receive feature, the printer 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 printer does not support polling pass codes. Polling pass codes are a security feature that
require the receiving fax machine to provide a pass code to the printer it is polling in order to receive the fax.
Make sure the printer you are polling does not have a pass code set up (or has not changed the default pass
code) or the printer cannot receive the fax.
To set up poll to receive a fax from the printer control panel

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
default 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 Legal-size fax and Letter-size paper is loaded in the
main tray.

1.
Touch (Right arrow), and then touch Setup.
2.
Touch Fax Setup, and then select Advanced Fax Setup.
3.
Touch Automatic Reduction, and then select On or Off.
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 print 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 printed. (The maximum number of fax numbers
you can block varies by model.)
NOTE: 1 This feature is not supported in all countries/regions. If it is not supported in your country/region,
Junk Fax Blocker does not appear in the Fax Options or Fax Settings menu.
NOTE: 2 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 Rings.
NOTE: The printer cannot receive faxes when the main phone number is off the hook.
To change the answer ring pattern for distinctive ring

Fax and digital phone services
Many telephone companies provide their customers with digital phone services, such as the following:
•
•
•
•
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.
ISDN: An integrated services digital network (ISDN) system.
FoIP: 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 over Internet Protocol (FoIP). For more information, see Fax 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 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 over Internet Protocol (FoIP).
You probably use a FoIP service (provided by your telephone company) when you:
•
•
52
Fax
Dial a special access code along with the fax number, or
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. (For more information about
changing the fax speed, see Set the fax speed. For more information about using ECM, see Send a fax in
Error Correction Mode.
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: 1 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 Printer management tools.
NOTE: 2 Ink level alerts and indicators provide estimates for planning purposes only. When you receive
a low-ink alert, consider having a replacement cartridge available to avoid possible printing delays. You do not
need to replace the ink cartridges until prompted to do so.
NOTE: 3 Ensure that the printheads and ink cartridges are in good conditions and installed properly. For
more information, see Work with ink cartridges.

The instructions in this user guide are for replacing ink cartridges, and are not intended for first time
installation.
Keep all ink 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 ink 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 ink 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
motion stop before unplugging the printer. For more information, see Turn the printer off.
◦
Make sure you leave the ink 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 ink
cartridges are missing.

Touch Tools, and then touch Display Estimated Ink Levels.
NOTE: 1 Ink level alerts and indicators provide estimates for planning purposes only. When you receive a
low-ink 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.
60
Work with ink cartridges
NOTE: 2 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: 3 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.
Print when one or more ink cartridges are depleted
The printer can still operate when the black ink cartridge or one or more color ink cartridges are depleted, but it
will print more slowly. Also, the quality of printed documents might be affected.
The printer will not be able to print when both the black cartridge and a color cartridge are depleted.
•
•
If the black cartridge is depleted, any black color in printed documents is created using a combination of the
remaining colors. As a result, blacks might not appear to be as dark.
If a color cartridge is depleted, the printer will print in grayscale using the black cartridge.
When possible, replace any depleted ink cartridges. For information about how to install new ink cartridges, see
Replace the ink cartridges.
CAUTION: While ink cartridges are not damaged when left outside of the printer, the printhead does need to
have all cartridges installed at all times after the printer is set up and in use. Leaving one or more cartridge
slots empty for an extended period may lead to print quality problems and possibly damage the printhead. If
you have recently left a cartridge out of the printer for an extended period, or if you have had a recent paper
jam, and have noticed poor print quality, clean the printhead. For more information, see Clean the printhead.
Replace the ink cartridges
NOTE: For information on recycling used ink supplies, see HP inkjet supplies recycling program.
If you do not already have replacement ink cartridges for the printer, see HP supplies and accessories.
NOTE: 1 At this time, some portions of the HP web site are available in English only.
NOTE: 2 Not all cartridges are available in all countries/regions.

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 following: the date when the cartridge was first installed, the date when the cartridge was last
used, the number of pages printed using the cartridge, the page coverage, frequency of printing, the printing
modes used, any printing errors that might have occurred, and the printer model.

Work with ink cartridges
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/hpinfo/globalcitizenship/environment/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
1.
On the printer control panel, touch (Right arrow), and then touch Setup.
2.
Select Preferences, and then touch Cartridge Chip Information.
3.
Touch OK to disable usage information collection.
NOTE: 1 To re-enable the usage information function, restore the factory defaults. For more information
about how to restore the defaults, see Restore factory defaults.

Solution 1: Use a lower print quality setting
Solution 2: Check the ink levels
Solution 3: Contact HP support
Solve a problem
Solution 1: Use a lower print quality setting
Solution: Check the print quality setting. Best and Maximum dpi provide the best quality but are slower
than Normal or Draft. Draft provides the fastest print speed.
Cause: The print quality was set to a higher setting.
If this did not solve the issue, try the next solution.
Solution 2: Check the ink levels
Solution: Check the estimated ink levels in the ink cartridges.
NOTE: Ink level alerts and indicators provide estimates for planning purposes only. When you receive
a low on ink message, consider having a replacement cartridge available to avoid possible printing
delays. You do not need to replace the ink cartridges until prompted to do so.
The printer can operate with one or more depleted cartridges. However, printing with depleted cartridges
slows the printer and affects the quality of printed documents. If the black cartridge is depleted, blacks are
not as dark. If a color cartridge is depleted, output is in grayscale. When possible, replace the depleted
cartridge. Do not remove the depleted cartridge until you have a new ink cartridge available. For information
about how to install new cartridges, see Replace the ink cartridges.
CAUTION: While ink cartridges are not damaged when left outside of the printer, the printhead does
need to have all cartridges installed at all times after the printer is set up and in use. Leaving one or
more cartridge slots empty for an extended period may lead to print quality problems and possibly
damage the printhead. If you have recently left a cartridge out of the printer for an extended period and
have noticed poor print quality, clean the printhead. For more information, see Clean the printhead.
For more information, see:
•
Check the estimated ink levels
Cause: The ink cartridges might have insufficient ink. Printing with depleted cartridges slows the printer.
If this did not solve the issue, try the next solution.
Solution 3: Contact HP support
Solution: Contact HP support for service.
Go to: www.hp.com/support. This website provides information and utilities that can help you correct many
common printer problems.
If prompted, choose your country/region, and then click Contact HP for information on calling for technical
support.
Cause: There was a problem with the printer.
Blank or partial page printed
Clean the printhead
•
Complete the printhead cleaning procedure. The printhead may need to be cleaned if the printer was turned
off incorrectly.

•
Make sure the margin settings for the document do not exceed the printable area of the printer. For more
information, see Set minimum margins.
TIP: If the top and bottom margins in your document are smaller than 16 mm (0.63 inches), the
document might not print out correct.
Check the color print settings
•
Make sure Print in Grayscale is not selected in the printer driver.
Check the printer location and length of USB cable
•
High electromagnetic fields (such as those generated by USB cables) can sometimes cause slight
distortions to printouts. Move the printer away from the source of the electromagnetic fields. Also, it is
recommended that you use a USB cable that is less than 3 meters (9.8 feet) long to minimize the effects of
these electromagnetic fields.
Check the paper size
•
Make sure the selected paper size matches the actual loaded paper size.
Placement of the text or graphics is wrong
Check how the paper is loaded
•
Make sure the paper guides fit snugly against the edges of the stack of paper, and make sure the tray is not
overloaded. For more information, see Load paper.
Check the paper size
•
Content on a page might be cut off if the document size is larger than the paper that you are using.
•
Make sure the paper size selected in the printer driver match the size of paper loaded in the tray.
Check the margin settings
•
If the text or graphics are cut off at the edges of the page, make sure the margin settings for the document
do not exceed the printable area of your printer. For more information, see Set minimum margins.
Check the page-orientation setting
•
Make sure the paper size and page orientation selected in the application match the settings in the printer
driver. For more information, see Print.

•
•
Solution 1: Make sure you are using genuine HP ink cartridges
Solution 2: Check the ink levels
Solution 3: Check the paper loaded in the input tray
Solution 4: Check the paper type
Solution 5: Check the print settings
Solution 6: Print and evaluate a print quality report
Solution 7: Contact HP support
Solution 1: Make sure you are using genuine HP ink cartridges
Solution: Check to see if your ink cartridges are genuine HP ink cartridges.
HP recommends that you use genuine HP ink cartridges. Genuine HP ink cartridges are designed and
tested with HP printers to help you easily produce great results, time after time.
NOTE: HP cannot guarantee the quality or reliability of non-HP supplies. Printer service or repairs
required as a result of using a non-HP supply are not covered under warranty.
If you believe you purchased genuine HP ink cartridges, go to:
www.hp.com/go/anticounterfeit
Cause: Non-HP ink cartridges were being used.
If this did not solve the issue, try the next solution.
Solution 2: Check the ink levels
Solution: Check the estimated ink levels in the ink cartridges.
NOTE: 1 Ink level alerts and indicators provide estimates for planning purposes only. When you
receive a low-ink alert, consider having a replacement cartridge available to avoid possible printing
delays. You do not need to replace the ink cartridges until prompted to do so.
NOTE: 2 The printer can operate with one or more depleted cartridges. However, printing with depleted
cartridges slows the printer and affects the quality of printed documents. If the black cartridge is
depleted, blacks are not as dark. If a color cartridge is depleted, output is in grayscale. When possible,
replace the depleted cartridge. Do not remove the depleted cartridge until you have a new ink cartridge
available to replace. For information about how to install new cartridges, see Replace the ink cartridges.

Chapter 8
CAUTION: While ink cartridges are not damaged when left outside of the printer, the printhead does
need to have all cartridges installed at all times after the printer is set up and in use. Leaving one or
more cartridge slots empty for an extended period may lead to print quality problems and possibly
damage the printhead. If you have recently left a cartridge out of the printer for an extended period, or if
you have had a recent paper jam, and have noticed poor print quality, clean the printhead. For more
information, see Clean the printhead.
For more information, see:
•
Check the estimated ink levels
Cause: The ink cartridges might have insufficient ink.
If this did not solve the issue, try the next solution.
Solution 3: Check the paper loaded in the input tray
Solution: Make sure the paper is loaded correctly and that it is not wrinkled or too thick.
•
Load paper with the print side facing down. For example, if you are loading glossy photo paper, load
the paper with the glossy side down.
•
Make sure the paper lays flat in the input tray and is not wrinkled. If the paper is too close to the
printhead during printing, the ink might be smeared. This can happen if the paper is raised, wrinkled,
or very thick, such as a mailing envelope.
For more information, see:
•
Load paper
Cause: The paper was loaded incorrectly, or it was wrinkled or too thick.
If this did not solve the issue, try the next solution.
Solution 4: Check the paper type
Solution: HP recommends that you use HP papers or any other paper type with ColorLok technology that
is appropriate for the printer. All papers with the ColorLok logo are independently tested to meet high
standards of reliability and print quality, and produce documents with crisp, vivid color, bolder blacks and
dry faster than ordinary plain papers.
Always make sure the paper you are printing on is flat. For best results when printing images, use
HP Advanced Photo Paper.
Store specialty paper in its original packaging inside a resealable plastic bag on a flat surface in a cool, dry
place. When you are ready to print, remove only the paper you plan to use immediately. When you have
finished printing, return any unused photo paper to the plastic bag. This prevents the photo paper from
curling.
NOTE: For this issue, there is not a problem with your ink supplies. Therefore, replacing the ink
cartridges is not necessary.
For more information, see:
•
Select print paper
Cause: The wrong kind of paper was loaded in the input tray.
If this did not solve the issue, try the next solution.
72
Solve a problem
Solution 5: Check the print settings
Solution: Check the print settings.
•
Check the print settings to see if the color settings are incorrect.
For example, check to see if the document is set to print in grayscale. Or, check to see if advanced
color settings such as saturation, brightness, or color tone, are set to modify the appearance of colors.
•
Check the print quality setting and make sure it matches the type of paper loaded in the printer.
You might need to choose a lower print quality setting if colors are running into each other. Or, choose
a higher setting if you are printing a high-quality photo, and then make sure photo paper such as
HP Advanced Photo Paper is loaded in the input tray.
NOTE: On some computer screens, colors might appear differently than they do when printed on
paper. In this case, there is nothing wrong with the printer, print settings, or ink cartridges. No further
troubleshooting is required.
For more information, see:
•
Select print paper
Cause: The print settings were set incorrectly.
If this did not solve the issue, try the next solution.
Solution 6: Print and evaluate a print quality report
Solution
To print a print quality report
•
Control panel: Touch (Right arrow), touch Setup, touch Reports, and then touch Print Quality
Report.
•
Embedded web server: Click the Tools tab, click Print Quality Toolbox under Utilities, and then
click the Print Quality Report button.

Scan takes too long
•
•
Check the settings
◦
Scanning with higher scan resolution takes longer and results in larger file sizes. Use high resolutions
only when necessary. Lower the resolution to scan more quickly.
◦
If you acquire an image through TWAIN on Windows computers, you can change the settings so that
the original scans in black and white. See the on-screen Help for the TWAIN program for information.
You can also change scan settings to black and white in the HP scanning software for Mac.
Check the status of the printer
◦
If you sent a print or copy job before you tried to scan, the scan starts if the scanner is not busy.
However, the printing and scanning processes share memory, which means that the scan might be
slower.
Part of the document did not scan or text is missing

•
Check the original
◦
Make sure that you loaded the original correctly. For more information, see Load an original on the
scanner glass or Load an original in the automatic document feeder (ADF).
◦
If you scanned the document from the ADF, try scanning the document directly from the scanner
glass. For more information, see Load an original on the scanner glass.
◦
Colored backgrounds can cause images in the foreground to blend into the background. Try adjusting
the settings before you scan the original, or try enhancing the image after you scan the original.
Check the settings
◦
Make sure that the input paper size is large enough for the original that you are scanning.
◦
If you are using the HP Printer Software, the default settings in the HP Printer Software might be set to
automatically perform a specific task other than the one that you are attempting. See the on-screen

If you are using a separate OCR (optical character recognition) program, the OCR program might be
linked to a word-processing program that does not perform OCR tasks. For more information, see the
documentation provided with the OCR program.
◦
Make sure you have selected an OCR language that corresponds to the language used for the
document you are scanning. For more information, see the documentation provided with the OCR
program.
Check the originals
◦
When scanning documents as editable text from the ADF, the original must be loaded into the ADF
with the top forward and face up. When scanning from the scanner glass, the original must be loaded
with the top facing the right edge of the scanner glass. Also, make sure the document is not skewed.
For more information, see Load an original on the scanner glass or Load an original in the automatic
document feeder (ADF).
◦
The software might not recognize text that is tightly spaced. For example, if the text that the software
converts has missing or combined characters, "rn" might appear as "m."
◦
The accuracy of the software depends on the image quality, text size, and structure of the original and
the quality of the scan itself. Make sure that your original has good image quality.
◦
Colored backgrounds can cause images in the foreground to blend too much.
Error messages appear
•
•
Unable to activate TWAIN source or An error occurred while acquiring the image
◦
If you are acquiring an image from another device, such as another scanner, make sure that the other
device is TWAIN-compliant. Devices that are not TWAIN-compliant do not work with the HP software
provided with the printer.
◦
If you are using a USB connection, make sure that you have connected the USB Device Cable to the
correct port on the back of your computer.

Scanned image quality is poor
•
•
•
•
80
The original is a second-generation photo or picture
Reprinted photographs, such as those in newspapers or magazines, are printed by using tiny dots of ink
that make an interpretation of the original photograph, which degrades the quality. Often, the ink dots form
unwanted patterns that can be detected when the image is scanned or printed or when the image appears
on a screen. If the following suggestions do not solve the problem, you might need to use a better-quality
version of the original.
◦
To eliminate the patterns, try reducing the size of the image after scanning.
◦
Print the scanned image to see if the quality is better.
◦
Make sure that the resolution and color settings are correct for the type of scan job.
◦
For best results, use the scanner glass for scanning rather than the ADF.
Text or images on the back of a two-sided original appear in the scan
◦
Two-sided originals can "bleed" text or images from the back side to the scan if the originals are
printed on paper that is too thin or too transparent.
The scanned image is skewed (crooked)
◦
The original might have been loaded incorrectly. Be sure to use the paper guides when you load the
originals into the ADF. For more information, see Load an original in the automatic document feeder
(ADF).
For best results, use the scanner glass for scanning rather than the ADF.

The display always shows Phone Off Hook
Solution: You are using the wrong type of phone cord. Make sure you are using the 2-wire phone cord
that came with the printer to connect the printer to your phone line. If the phone cord that came with the
printer is 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.
Solution: 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.
The printer is having problems sending and receiving faxes
Solution: Make sure the printer is turned on. Look at the display on the printer. If the display is blank and
the
(Power) button light is not lit, the printer is turned off. Make sure the power cord is firmly connected to
the printer and plugged into a power outlet. Press the
(Power) button to turn on the printer.
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.
Solution: If Fax to PC or Fax to Mac has been enabled, you might not be able to send or receive faxes if
the fax memory is full (limited by printer memory).

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. For information about changing ECM, see Send a fax in 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 cannot fax successfully. For more information, see Case B: Set up the printer with DSL.
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. For more
information, see Case C: Set up the printer with a PBX phone system or an ISDN line.
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
Solution
•
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 Rings. For more information, see Change the answer ring pattern for distinctive
ring.
•
If Auto Answer is set to Off, you need to receive faxes manually; otherwise, the printer cannot
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 on setting up the printer when you have a voice mail service, see
Case F: Shared voice/fax line with voice mail. For information on receiving faxes manually, see
Receive a fax manually.
•
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 solve these problems:
◦
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 as described in Case I: Shared voice/
fax line with answering machine.
◦
Make sure the printer is set to receive faxes automatically. For information on setting up the
printer to receive faxes automatically, see Receive a fax.
◦
Make sure the Rings to Answer setting is set to a greater number of rings than the answering
machine. For more information, see Set the number of rings before answering.
88
Solve a problem
◦
◦
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
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.
For more information, see Change the answer ring pattern for distinctive ring.
The printer cannot send faxes, but can receive faxes
Solution
•
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 * button 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. For more information,
see Send a fax using monitor dialing.
•
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
Solution
•
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 as described in Case I: Shared voice/fax line with
answering machine. 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. For more information, see Set the number of rings before answering.
The phone cord that came with my printer is not long enough
Solution: If the phone cord that came with the printer is not long enough, you can use a longer 2-wire
phone cord to extend the length. You can purchase the cord at an electronics store that carries phone
accessories.
TIP: If the printer came with a 2-wire phone cord adaptor, you can use it with a 4-wire phone cord to
extend the length. For information on using the 2-wire phone cord adaptor, see the documentation that
came with it.
To extend your phone cord
1.
Using the phone cord supplied in the box with the printer, connect to the port labeled 1-LINE on the
back of the printer.
2.
Connect another phone cord and the open port on the coupler and to the telephone wall jack.
Color faxes do not print
Cause: The Incoming Fax Printing option is turned off.
Solution: To print color faxes, make sure that the Incoming Fax Printing option in the printer control panel
is turned on.
The computer cannot receive faxes (Fax to PC and Fax to Mac)
Cause: The computer selected to receive faxes is turned off.
Solution: Make sure the computer selected to receive faxes is switched on at all times.
Cause: Different computers are configured for setup and receiving faxes and one of them may be
switched off.
Solution: If the computer receiving faxes is different from the one used for setup, both computers should
be switched on at all times.
Cause: Fax to PC or Fax to Mac is not activated or the computer is not configured to receive faxes.
Solution: Activate Fax to PC or Fax to Mac and make sure the computer is configured to receive faxes.

network.
NOTE: If your wireless router or Apple AirPort Base Station is using a hidden SSID, your printer cannot
automatically detect the network.
A: Make sure the printer is on the network
1.
If the printer supports Ethernet networking and is connected to an Ethernet network, make sure an Ethernet
cable is not plugged into the back of the printer. If an Ethernet cable is plugged into the back, then wireless
connectivity is disabled.
2.
If the printer is connected to a wireless network, run the Wireless Network Test. For more information about
how to print the wireless test page, see Test the wireless connection.
3.
After the page has been printed, check the wireless connection status, the Network Name (SSID), and the
IP address:
Connected
The Connected is listed in the Connectivity area, the
Diagnostics Results section, which indicates if the printer
is connected to your network — either your Ethernet
network or your wireless network.
•
•
If the Connected is Ready, the printer is actively
connected to a network.
If the Connected is Offline, the printer is not
connected to a network.
Network Name (SSID)
The Network Name (SSID) is listed in the Current
Configuration setction, which shows the network name
what your printer choose for connecting the wireless
network.
IP Address
The IP Address is listed in the Current Configuration
section, which indicates your printer has the valid IP
address.

Solve a problem
TIP: You can visit the HP online support website at www.hp.com/support for information and utilities that can
help you correct many common printer problems.
Configure your firewall software to work with the printer
A personal firewall, which is security software running on your computer, can block network communication
between your printer and your computer.
If you are having problems such as:
•
•
•
•
Printer not found when installing HP software
Unable to print, print job stuck in queue or printer goes offline
Scan communication errors or scanner busy messages
Unable to see printer status on your computer
The firewall might be preventing your printer from notifying computers on your network where it can be found.
If you are using the HP software on a computer running Windows and cannot find the printer during installation
(and you know the printer is on the network)—or if you have already successfully installed HP software and
experience problems—check the following:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
If you have just installed the HP software, try turning off your computer and the printer, and then turning
them both on again.
Keep your security software up to date. Many security software vendors provide updates that correct known
issues and provide the latest defenses against new security threats.
If your firewall has "High," "Medium," or "Low" security settings, use the "Medium" setting when your
computer is connected to your network.
If you have changed any firewall settings from default, try going back to the default setting.
If your firewall has a setting called "trusted zone," use this setting when your computer is connected to your
network.
If your firewall has a setting to "not show alert messages," you should disable this. When installing the HP
software and using the HP printer you may see alert messages from your firewall software that provide
options to "allow," "permit" or "unblock." You should allow any HP software that causes an alert. Also, if the
alert has a "remember this action" or "create a rule for this" selection, select it. This is how the firewall
learns what can be trusted on your network.
Do not have more than one firewall enabled at the same time on your computer. An example would be
having both the Windows firewall provided by the operating system and a third party firewall enabled at the
same time. Having more than one firewall enabled at the same time will not make you computer any safer
and may cause problems.
For more information about using your printer with personal firewall software, visit www.hp.com/go/
wirelessprinting, and then click Firewall Help in the Wireless Network Help section.

Printhead maintenance
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.
This section contains the following topics:
•
•
Clean the printhead
Align the printhead
Clean the printhead
If your printed output is streaked or has any incorrect or missing colors, the printhead might need to be cleaned.
There are two 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 both stages of cleaning, try aligning the printer. If print quality
problems persist after cleaning and aligning, contact HP support. For more information, see HP support.
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. Before cleaning the printhead, make sure you load
paper. For more information, see Load paper.
Not turning the printer off correctly can cause print quality problems. For more information, see Turn the
printer off.

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 automatic document feeder, see Paper specifications.
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.

Guidelines for printing on both sides of a page
•
•
•
•
•
•
Always use paper that conforms to the printer specifications. For more information, see Paper
specifications.
Specify two-sided printing options in your application or in the printer driver.
Do not print on both sides of envelopes, photo paper, glossy paper, or paper lighter than 16 lb bond (60 g/
m2) or heavier than 28 lb bond (105 g/m2). Jams might occur with these paper types.
Several kinds of paper require a specific orientation when you print on both sides of a page. These include
letterhead, preprinted paper, and paper with watermarks and prepunched holes. When you print from
a computer running Windows, the printer prints the first side of the paper first. Load the paper with the print
side facing down.
For auto-duplexing, when printing finishes on one side of the paper, the printer holds the paper and pauses
while the ink dries. Once the ink dries, the paper is pulled back into the printer and the second side is
printed. When printing is complete, the paper is dropped onto the output tray. Do not grab it before printing
is complete.
You can print on both sides of supported custom-size paper by turning the paper over and feeding it into the
printer again. For more information, see Paper specifications.

Additional fax setup
After completing all the steps in the getting started guide, use the instructions in this section to complete your fax
setup. Keep your getting started guide for later use.
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 Setup Assistant (Mac 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 section to complete your fax setup.
This section contains the following topics:

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.
•
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.
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 supplied phone cord to the adapter provided for your country/region.
•
If your country/region is listed in the table, you probably have a parallel-type telephone system. In a paralleltype phone system, you are able to connect shared telephone equipment to the phone line by using the "2EXT" 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 B: Set up the printer with DSL
If you have a DSL service through your telephone company, and do not connect any equipment to the printer,
use the instructions in this section to connect a DSL filter between the telephone wall jack and the printer. The
DSL filter removes the digital signal that can interfere with the printer, so the printer can communicate correctly
with the phone line. (DSL might be called ADSL in your country/region.)
NOTE: If you have a DSL line and you do not connect the DSL filter, you cannot send and receive faxes with
the printer.

If you encounter problems setting up the printer with optional equipment, contact your local service provider or
vendor for further assistance.
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.
You might need to connect the supplied phone cord to the adapter provided for your country/region.
If you encounter problems setting up the printer with optional equipment, contact your local service provider or
vendor for further assistance.

calls or it might not answer at all.
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. For more information, see Change the answer ring pattern for distinctive ring.

•
If you have a serial-type phone system, you might plug your phone directly on top of the printer cable
which has a wall plug attached to 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.
If you pick up the phone before the printer answers the call and hear fax tones from a sending fax machine, you
need to answer the fax call manually.
If you encounter problems setting up the printer with optional equipment, contact your local service provider or
vendor for further assistance.

Other wireless security guidelines
Network setup
Overview of security settings
To help improve the security of the wireless network and prevent unauthorized access, the printer supports many
common types of network authentication, including WEP, WPA, and WPA2.
•
•
•
WEP: Provides security by encrypting data sent over radio waves from one wireless device to another
wireless device. Devices on a WEP-enabled network use WEP keys to encode data. If your network uses
WEP, you must know the WEP key(s) it uses.
WPA: Increases the level of over-the-air data protection and access control on existing and future wireless
networks. It addresses all known weaknesses of WEP, the original native security mechanism in the 802.11
standard. WPA uses the Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP) for encryption and employs 802.1X
authentication with one of the standard Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) types available today.
WPA2: Provides enterprise and consumer wireless users with a high level of assurance that only authorized
users can access their wireless networks. WPA2 provides the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES). AES
is defined in counter cipher-block chaining mode (CCM) and supports the Independent Basic Service Set
(IBSS) to enable security between client workstations operating connected wirelessly without a wireless
router (such as a Linksys wireless router or Apple AirPort Base Station).
Add hardware addresses to a wireless router (MAC filtering)
MAC filtering is a security feature in which a wireless router or wireless access point is configured with a list of
hardware addresses (also called "MAC addresses") of devices that are allowed to gain access to the network
through the router.
If the router filters hardware addresses, then the printer's hardware address must be added to the router's list of
accepted hardware addresses. If the router does not have the hardware address of a printer attempting to access
the network, the router denies the printer access to the network.
CAUTION: This method is not recommended, however, because your MAC addresses can easily be read
and falsified by unwanted users outside your network.
To add hardware addresses to a wireless router or wireless access point
1.
Print the network configuration page, and then locate the printer's hardware address. For more information,
see Understand the network configuration page.
NOTE: The printer maintains separate hardware addresses for the Ethernet connection and for
wireless connection. Both hardware addresses are listed on the printer's network configuration page.
2.
Open the configuration utility for the wireless router or wireless access point, and add the printer's hardware
address to the list of accepted hardware addresses.
NOTE: For more information about using the configuration utility, see the documentation provided with the
router or wireless access point.
Other wireless security guidelines
To keep the wireless network secure, follow these guidelines:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Use a wireless password with at least 20 random characters. You can use up to 64 characters in a WPA
wireless password.
Avoid any common words or phrases, easy sequences of characters (such as all 1s), and personallyidentifiable information for wireless passwords. Always use random strings composed of uppercase and
lowercase letters, numbers, and if allowed, special characters such as punctuation.
Change the default wireless password provided by the manufacturer for administrator access to the access
point or wireless router. Some routers let you change the administrator name as well.
Turn off administrative access over wireless if possible. If you do this, you need to connect to the router with

Guidelines for reducing interference on a wireless network
The following tips will help reduce the chances for interference in a wireless network:
•
•
•
•
Keep the wireless devices away from large metal objects, such as filing cabinets, and other electromagnetic
devices, such as microwaves and cordless telephones, as these objects can disrupt radio signals.
Keep the wireless devices away from large masonry structures and other building structures as these
objects can absorb radio waves and lower signal strength.
Position the access point or wireless router in a central location in line of sight with the wireless devices on
the network.
Keep all wireless devices on the network within range of one another.
Change basic network settings
The control panel options enable you to set up and manage a wireless connection and to perform a variety of
network management tasks. This includes viewing the network settings, restoring the network defaults, turning
the wireless radio on and off, and changing the network settings.

Printer management tools
About cookies
The embedded web server (EWS) places very small text files (cookies) on your hard drive when you are
browsing. These files let the EWS recognize your computer the next time you visit. For example, if you have
configured the EWS language, a cookie helps remember which language you have selected so that the next time
you access the EWS, the pages are displayed in that language. Though some cookies are cleared at the end of
each session (such as the cookie that stores the selected language), others (such as the cookie that stores
customer-specific preferences) are stored on the computer until you clear them manually.
NOTE: The cookies that the EWS stores on your computer are only used for saving settings on your
computer or for sharing information between the printer and the computer. These cookies are not sent to any
HP websites.
You can configure your browser to accept all cookies, or you can configure it to alert you every time a cookie is
offered, which allows you to decide which cookies to accept or refuse. You can also use your browser to remove
unwanted cookies.
NOTE: Depending on your printer, if you disable cookies, you also disable one or more of the following
features:
•

•
Starting where you left the application (especially useful when using setup wizards)
Remembering the EWS browser language setting
Personalizing the EWS Home page
For information about how to change your privacy and cookie settings and how to view or delete cookies, see the
documentation available with your web browser.
To open the embedded web server
NOTE: The printer must be on a network and must have an IP address. The IP address and hostname for
the printer are listed on the status report. For more information, see Understand the network configuration
page.

In a supported web browser on your computer, type the IP address or hostname assigned to the printer.
For example, if the IP address is 123.123.123.123, type the following address into the web browser: http://
123.123.123.123
TIP: 1
After opening the embedded web server, bookmark it so that you can return to it quickly.
TIP: 2 If you are using the Safari web browser in Mac OS X, you can also use the Bonjour bookmark to
open the EWS without typing the IP address. To use the Bonjour bookmark, open Safari, and then from
the Safari menu, click Preferences. On the Bookmarks tab, in the Bookmarks bar section, select
Include Bonjour, and then close the window. Click the Bonjour bookmark, and then select your

Ink sensor warning
The ink sensor is reporting an unexpected condition. This could be caused by the cartridge, or the sensor may
have failed. If the sensor has failed, it can no longer sense when your cartridges are out of ink. Printing with an
empty cartridge will cause air to enter the ink system, which causes poor print quality. Significant amounts of ink
will be used up to recover from this condition, which will deplete much of the ink supply for all cartridges.
Solution: Click OK to continue printing or replace the cartridge. For information about how to install new
cartridges, see Replace the ink cartridges.
Problem with printer preparation

If there are no leaks, re-install cartridges and close the printer cover. Turn the printer off then on again. If you get
this message a second time, contact HP support.
For more information about contacting HP support, see HP support.
