Prepare the printer

  4. Turn the cardboard support 90o degree to the right.
  5. Lift the cardboard support up and out of the printer. It will not be needed again; you can discard it.
  6. Inside the right-hand side of the printer, you will see an orange carriage stopper. Release the stopper by lifting the lever wrapped with light blue paper, and then remove the stopper from the printer.
  7. Part of the stopper may fall off while you are removing it; in this case, remove both parts. The stopper will not be needed again; you can discard it.
  8. Move to the rear of the printer and fit the rear tray to the printer.
  9. Slide it in and then down.
  10. Push up the back of the tray in to its closed position.
  11. Connect the supplied network cable to the appropriate socket on the rear right of the printer, and secure the cable with the clip provided, to prevent accidental unplugging.
  12. Connect the power cable to the printer’s power socket.
  13. Switch On power to the printer using the switch just above the power socket. Remove the plastic film covering the window and the plastic film covering the front panel (LCD Display).
Install the Ink cartridges
  1. On the front panel, the HP logo appears. Please wait a while. You will then be prompted to select the language of the printer.
  2. The printer checks for the presence of ink cartridges. On finding none, it prompts you to install the ink cartridges.
  3. Open the cover on the left-hand side of the printer.
  4. Insert the ink cartridges one by one. Each cartridge is marked with its own color, and should be inserted only into the slot of the same color. Avoid touching pins, leads or circuits.
  5. The cartridges must be inserted the right way around: the ink outlet in the cartridge should meet the ink inlet in the slot. Push the cartridge into the slot until it clicks in to the place. The printer beeps whenever a cartridge is successfully inserted.
  6. When you have inserted all of the ink cartridges correctly, the printer must prepare the ink system for its first use. It will do this immediately if you press the OK key, or after a 60-second pause if you do not press OK key. When the ink system is ready, the front panel will prompt you to open the window.
Install the Printheads
  1. Open the window and grasp the blue handle of the printhead cover.
  2. Pull the blue handle towards you as far as it will go.
  3. Lift the handle up to open the print head cover. The front panel prompts you for the next step: removing the printheads. Do not press OK until you have removed all the printheads.
  4. The setup printheads exists only to prevent the escape of ink during ink cartridge installation. The front panel now prompts you to remove the setup printheads and press the OK key when you have finished.
  5. Remove and discard all orange setup printheads. You may need to use force to extract each print head.
      warning:
    The setup printheads contain ink, which could leak out. Avoid touching pins, leads or circuits.
  6. Press the OK key on the front panel when you have removed all of the setup printheads. The front panel then prompts you to install the new printheads.
  7. Unwrap each printhead and remove all orange parts.
  8. Insert the printheads one by one. Each printhead is marked with its own colors, and should be inserted only into the correct slot marked with the same colors. Insert the printheads with the blue handle towards you.
  9. Push each printhead into the slot until it clicks into place. The front panel tells you whether the printhead has been inserted correctly.
  10. Pull the blue handle towards you as far as it will go, picking up the latch in the process.
  11. Push the handle down on top of the printhead cover. The printer checks and prepares the new printheads, which may take 30 to 40 minutes depending on the condition of the printheads and of the environment. Close the window after this.
  12. While the printer is preparing the printheads, you could spend the time installing the printer software on your computer. Be sure to follow the software installation instructions, connecting your printer before installing the software can lead to printer errors.
  13. Once the printhead check has finished, the printer will be ready to load paper for the printhead alignment.
Load a roll of paper
  1. When the front panel prompts you to load paper for printhead alignment, go to the rear of the printer, and remove the orange stoppers from each end of the spindle.
  2. Remove the spindle by lifting out first the right-hand end, then the left.
  3. If the blue removable stop is on the spindle, remove it. Put the roll onto the right way around: the leading edge of the paper should go into the printer from the top of the roll. Add the removable stop to the spindle to keep the roll in place.
  4. Push the removable stop towards the roll as far as it will go.
      note:
    No gap should be left between stop and paper.
  5. Replace the spindle into the printer, left end first, with the fixed stop on the left and the blue removable stop on the right.
Align the printheads
  1. Feed the leading edge of the paper into the printer until the printer takes hold of it. Then move to the front of the printer.
  2. The front panel will ask whether you are loading roll or sheet paper. The printer will proceed to align the printheads. This process involves printing, and therefore needs to use some paper.
  3. The front panel will display a series of messages showing the progress of the printhead alignment. There is no need to take any action until the alignment has finished. When the message shown in the following image is displayed, press OK key.
  4. You can now, or at same time, color calibrate the paper type that you intend to use in the printer. Color calibration is recommended for accurate color printing. It can be started from the Printer Utility program installed as part of your printer software, or from the front panel’s Image Quality Maintenance menu.
