Maintaining and transporting
the printer
The HP Photosmart 330 series printer requires very little maintenance. Follow the
guidelines in this chapter to extend the life span of the printer and printing supplies,
and to ensure that the photos you print are always of the highest quality.
Cleaning and maintaining the printer
Keep the printer and print cartridges clean and well maintained using the simple
procedures in this section.
Cleaning the outside of the printer
1.
2.
3.
Turn off the printer, then disconnect the power cord from the back of the printer.
If you installed the optional HP Photosmart Internal Battery in the printer, remove
it, then close the battery compartment door.
Wipe the outside of the printer with a soft cloth that has been lightly moistened
with water.
Caution 1 Do not use any type of cleaning solution. Household cleaners and
detergents may damage the printer’s finish.
Caution 2 Do not clean the interior of the printer. Keep all fluids away from
the interior.
Cleaning the print cartridge
If you notice white lines or single-color streaks on the photos you print, the print
cartridge may need to be cleaned. Do not clean the cartridge more often than
necessary, since cleaning uses up ink.
1.
Remove any memory cards from the memory card slots.
Caution Do not pull out a memory card while the Memory Card light is
flashing. For more information, see Removing a memory card.

Press OK to begin cleaning the print cartridge.
When the printer finishes cleaning the cartridge and prints a test page, check the
test page and select from the following options:
– If the test page has white streaks or missing colors, the print cartridge needs
to be cleaned again. Select Yes, then press OK.
– If the print quality of the test page looks good, select No, then press OK.
You can clean the cartridge up to three times. Each successive cleaning is more
thorough and uses more ink.
HP Photosmart 330 series User's Guide
33
Chapter 5
If you complete all three levels of cleaning using this procedure and you still notice
white streaks or missing colors on the test page, you may need to clean the print
cartridge copper-colored contacts. For more information, see the following section.
Note If the cartridge or printer has been recently dropped, you may also see
white streaks or missing colors in your prints. This problem is temporary and
clears up within 24 hours.
Cleaning the print cartridge contacts
If you use the printer in a dusty environment, debris may accumulate on the coppercolored contacts and cause printing problems.
To clean the print cartridge contacts:
1. Gather the following items to clean the contacts:
– Distilled water (tap water may contain contaminants that can damage the
print cartridge)
– Cotton swabs or other soft, lint-free material that will not stick to the print
cartridge
2. Open the print cartridge door.
3. Remove the print cartridge and place it on a piece of paper with the ink nozzle
plate facing up. Be careful not to touch the copper-colored contacts or the ink
nozzle plate with your fingers.
Caution Do not leave the print cartridge outside the printer for more than
30 minutes. Ink nozzles exposed to the air longer than this may dry out
and cause printing problems.
4.
5.
Lightly moisten a cotton swab with distilled water and squeeze any excess water
from the swab.
Gently wipe the copper-colored contacts with the cotton swab.
Caution Do not touch the ink nozzle. Touching the ink nozzle will result
in clogs, ink failure, and bad electrical connections.
6.
7.
Repeat steps 4–5 until no ink residue or dust appears on a clean swab.
Insert the print cartridge in the printer, then close the print cartridge door.
Printing a test page
Print a test page before contacting HP Customer Care. The test page contains
diagnostic information you can use when working with HP Customer Care to solve
printing problems. Look at the ink nozzle pattern on the test page to check the ink
level and condition of the print cartridge. If any line or color is missing from the
pattern, try cleaning the print cartridge. For more information, see Cleaning the print
cartridge.

If an “x” appears to the left of any of the bars, align the print cartridge again.
If the “x” still appears, replace the print cartridge.
Storing the printer and print cartridges
Protect the printer and print cartridges by storing them properly when you are not
using them.
Storing the printer
The printer is built to withstand long or short periods of inactivity.
●
●
●
Close the In and Out tray doors when the printer is not in use.
Store the printer indoors out of direct sunlight in a place without temperature
extremes.
If the printer and print cartridge have not been used for one month or more, clean
the print cartridge before printing. For more information, see Cleaning the print
cartridge.
Storing the print cartridges
When you store or transport the printer, always leave the active print cartridge inside
the printer. The printer stores the print cartridge in a protective cap during the powerdown cycle.
Caution Make sure the printer completes its power-down cycle before you
unplug the power cord or remove the internal battery. This allows the printer to
store the print cartridge properly.
36
HP Photosmart 330 series
Follow these tips to help maintain HP print cartridges and ensure consistent print
quality:
●
●
●
When you remove a print cartridge from the printer, store it in a print cartridge
protector to prevent the ink from drying out.
In some countries/regions the cartridge protector is not included with the printer,
but comes with the HP Gray Photo cartridge that can be purchased separately. In
other countries/regions, the protector is included with the printer.
Keep all unused print cartridges in their original sealed packages until they are
needed. Store print cartridges at room temperature (15–35 degrees C or 59–95
degrees F).
Do not remove the plastic tape covering the ink nozzles until you are ready to
install the print cartridge in the printer. If the plastic tape has been removed from
the print cartridge, do not attempt to reattach it. Reattaching the tape damages

Paper does not feed into the printer correctly.
Solution
● Make sure that the paper-width guide fits close to the edge of the paper
without bending the paper.
● There may be too much paper loaded in the In tray. Remove some paper
and try printing again.
● If sheets of photo paper stick together, try loading one sheet at a time.
● If you are using the printer in an extremely high or low humidity environment,
insert the paper as far as it will go into the In tray, and load one sheet of
photo paper at a time.
● If you are using photo paper that is curled, place the paper in a plastic bag
and gently bend it in the opposite direction of the curl until the paper lies flat.
If the problem persists, use paper that is not curled. For information about
proper storage and handling of photo paper, see Maintaining the quality of
photo paper.
● The paper may be too thin or too thick. Try using HP-designed photo paper.
For more information, see Choosing the right paper.

The paper jammed while printing.
Solution Check the printer screen for instructions. To clear a paper jam, try the
following solutions.
● If the paper came part way through the front of the printer, gently pull the
paper towards you to remove it.
● If the paper did not come part way through the front of the printer, try
removing it from the back of the printer:
– Remove the paper from the In tray, then pull down on the In tray to open
it fully to a horizontal position.
– Gently pull the jammed paper to remove it from the back of the printer.
– Lift the In tray up until it snaps back into paper-loading position.
● If you cannot grasp the edge of the jammed paper to remove it, try the
following:
– Turn off the printer.
– If the optional HP Photosmart Internal Battery is not installed in the
printer, unplug the printer power cord. Wait about 10 seconds, then plug
the power cord back in.
– If the optional HP Photosmart Internal Battery is installed in the printer,
unplug the printer power cord, if it is plugged in. Open the battery
compartment cover and remove the battery. Wait about 10 seconds,
then reinstall the battery. If desired, plug in the power cord.
– Turn on the printer. The printer checks for paper in the paper path and
will automatically eject the jammed paper.
Press OK to continue.
Tip If you experience paper jams while printing, try loading one sheet of
photo paper at a time. Insert the paper as far as it will go into the In tray.
A blank page came out of the printer.
Solution
● Check the ink-level icon on the printer screen. If the print cartridge is out of
ink, replace it. For more information, see Inserting print cartridges.
● You may have begun printing and then cancelled the process. If you
cancelled the process before the photo started printing, the printer may have
already loaded paper in preparation for printing. The next time you print, the
printer will eject the blank page before starting the new printing project.
The photo did not print using the printer's default print settings.
Solution You may have changed the print settings for the selected photo. Print
settings you apply to an individual photo override the printer's default print
settings. Discard all print settings that have been applied to an individual photo by
deselecting the photo. For more information, see Selecting photos to print.

HP Photosmart 330 series
The printer ejects the paper when preparing to print.
Solution Direct sunlight could be interfering with the operation of the automatic
paper sensor. Move the printer out of direct sunlight.
Print quality is poor.
Solution
● The print cartridge may be running out of ink. Check the ink-level icon on the
printer screen, and replace the cartridge if necessary. For more information,
see Insert the cartridge.
● You may have selected a low-resolution setting on the digital camera when
you took the photo. For better results in the future, set the digital camera to a
higher resolution.
● Make sure you are using the right type of photo paper for the project. Use
HP-designed photo paper for best results. For more information, see
Choosing the right paper.
● You may be printing on the wrong side of the paper. Make sure the paper is
loaded with the side to be printed facing up.
● The print cartridge may need to be cleaned. For more information, see
Cleaning the print cartridge.
● The print cartridge may need to be aligned. For more information, see
Aligning the print cartridge.
The photos I marked for printing in the digital camera do not print.
Solution Some digital cameras let you mark photos for printing both in the
camera's internal memory and on the memory card. If you mark photos in the
internal memory, and then move photos from the camera's internal memory to the
memory card, the marks do not transfer. Mark photos for printing after you
transfer them from the digital camera's internal memory to the memory card.

HP product
Duration of limited warranty
Software
90 days

warranty does not cover HP ink products that have been refilled,

Printer peripheral hardware (see the following for details) 1 year
A. Extent of limited warranty
1. Hewlett-Packard (HP) warrants to the end-user customer that the HP products specified above will be free from
defects in materials and workmanship for the duration specified above, which duration begins on the date of purchase
by the customer.
2. For software products, HP's limited warranty applies only to a failure to execute programming instructions. HP does
not warrant that the operation of any product will be uninterrupted or error free.
3. HP's limited warranty covers only those defects that arise as a result of normal use of the product, and does not cover
any other problems, including those that arise as a result of:
a. Improper maintenance or modification;
b. Software, media, parts, or supplies not provided or supported by HP;
c. Operation outside the product's specifications;
d. Unauthorized modification or misuse.
4. For HP printer products, the use of a non-HP ink cartridge or a refilled ink cartridge does not affect either the warranty
to the customer or any HP support contract with the customer. However, if printer failure or damage is attributable to
the use of a non-HP or refilled ink cartridge, HP will charge its standard time and materials charges to service the
printer for the particular failure or damage.
5. If HP receives, during the applicable warranty period, notice of a defect in any product which is covered by HP's
warranty, HP shall either repair or replace the product, at HP's option.
6. If HP is unable to repair or replace, as applicable, a defective product which is covered by HP's warranty, HP shall,
within a reasonable time after being notified of the defect, refund the purchase price for the product.
7. HP shall have no obligation to repair, replace, or refund until the customer returns the defective product to HP.
8. Any replacement product may be either new or like-new, provided that it has functionality at least equal to that of the
product being replaced.
9. HP products may contain remanufactured parts, components, or materials equivalent to new in performance.
10. HP's Limited Warranty Statement is valid in any country where the covered HP product is distributed by HP. Contracts
for additional warranty services, such as on-site service, may be available from any authorized HP service facility in
countries where the product is distributed by HP or by an authorized importer.
B. Limitations of warranty
TO THE EXTENT ALLOWED BY LOCAL LAW, NEITHER HP NOR ITS THIRD PARTY SUPPLIERS MAKES ANY
OTHER WARRANTY OR CONDITION OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR
CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY, SATISFACTORY QUALITY, AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
PURPOSE.
C. Limitations of liability
1. To the extent allowed by local law, the remedies provided in this Warranty Statement are the customer's sole and
exclusive remedies.
2. TO THE EXTENT ALLOWED BY LOCAL LAW, EXCEPT FOR THE OBLIGATIONS SPECIFICALLY SET FORTH IN
THIS WARRANTY STATEMENT, IN NO EVENT SHALL HP OR ITS THIRD PARTY SUPPLIERS BE LIABLE FOR
DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, WHETHER BASED ON
CONTRACT, TORT, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY AND WHETHER ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF
SUCH DAMAGES.
D. Local law
1. This Warranty Statement gives the customer specific legal rights. The customer may also have other rights which vary
from state to state in the United States, from province to province in Canada, and from country to country elsewhere
in the world.
2. To the extent that this Warranty Statement is inconsistent with local law, this Warranty Statement shall be deemed
modified to be consistent with such local law. Under such local law, certain disclaimers and limitations of this Warranty
Statement may not apply to the customer. For example, some states in the United States, as well as some
governments outside the United States (including provinces in Canada), may:
a. Preclude the disclaimers and limitations in this Warranty Statement from limiting the statutory rights of a consumer
(e.g., the United Kingdom);
b. Otherwise restrict the ability of a manufacturer to enforce such disclaimers or limitations; or
c. Grant the customer additional warranty rights, specify the duration of implied warranties which the manufacturer
cannot disclaim, or allow limitations on the duration of implied warranties.
3. THE TERMS IN THIS WARRANTY STATEMENT, EXCEPT TO THE EXTENT LAWFULLY PERMITTED, DO NOT
EXCLUDE, RESTRICT, OR MODIFY, AND ARE IN ADDITION TO, THE MANDATORY STATUTORY RIGHTS
APPLICABLE TO THE SALE OF THE HP PRODUCTS TO SUCH CUSTOMERS.
HP Limited Warranty
Dear Customer,
You will find below the name and address of the HP entity responsible for the performance of the HP Limited Warranty in your
