HP Color LaserJet CP2020 Printer Series - HP Embedded Web Server

The HP Embedded Web Server (HP EWS) is a Web server in the product that allows users to control settings on the HP Color LaserJet CP2020 Series printer through the Web browser. The HP EWS is available only if the HP Color LaserJet CP2020 Series printer is installed through a network rather than a USB connection.
To gain access to the HP EWS, open a Web browser and type the printer IP address in the address bar.
The printer IP address is documented on a configuration page. Print a configuration page by following these steps on the product control panel:
  1. Press OK to open the menus.
  2. Press the Left arrow or Right arrow to navigate to Main menu/Reports. Press OK.
  3. Press the Left arrow or Right arrow to navigate to Reports/Config report. Press OK.
  4. Find the IP address on the printed sheet beneath the Product Settings heading.
The following tabs are available in the HP EWS:

Status tab

Paper Handling

Use this screen to configure the paper-handling defaults for the printer. Change the default settings by clicking the blue arrow next to each option and highlighting the selection. Click Apply to save the new settings.
Figure : Paper Handling
The following options are available.
  • Default paper size. This drop-down menu lists all of the supported paper sizes.
    Because paper-size settings in most software programs override driver settings, use the driver to set paper size only when printing from software programs that do not include a paper-size setting, such as NotePad, or when producing a book or a booklet that does not require different paper sizes.
    note:
    Certain software programs can override the size command and specify different paper sizes within a single document.
    When you change the print-driver setting to a paper size that is not currently loaded in the printer, a control-panel message prompts you to load the paper size or select another tray.
  • Default paper type. This drop-down menu shows a selection of the paper types that the HP Color LaserJet CP2020 Series printer supports. When you use the default setting, Unspecified, the printer uses the default paper type, which is usually Plain. For more information about paper types, see Paper type:.
  • Duplex. The duplexing unit in the HP Color LaserJet CP2020 Series product prints on two sides of a sheet of paper when the Print on Both Sides option is specified in the print job. The HP Color LaserJet CP2020 Series product comes with a duplexing unit installed in the following models:
    • HP Color LaserJet CP2025dn
    • HP Color LaserJet CP2025x
    These product models support smart duplexing. The smart duplexing feature increases printing performance by preventing one-page print jobs or single-sided pages of a duplexed print job from going through the duplexing unit even when the duplexing feature has been selected in the driver.
    All paper types support the smart duplexing feature, except for paper types that cannot be printed on both sides (such as labels, transparencies, and envelopes) and the following paper types:
    • Prepunched
    • Preprinted
    • Letterhead
    When the paper type is set to Unspecified, the smart duplexing feature is disabled.
    To achieve the best print quality when printing on the second side of the page, the product needs to make adjustments to its print modes. When you select a paper type, you are, in effect, instructing the product to use a group of settings (such as fuser temperature and print speed) to print the paper with the best possible quality. This group of settings is known as print mode. A different print mode is used with each paper type. Print-mode adjustments for the second side of a duplexed page are automatic.
    For more information about the duplex feature, seeFinishing tab features .
  • Bind. Binding occurs along either the left edge or the top edge of the page. Short-side binding is for print jobs with pages that read by flipping over like the pages of a calendar. Long-side binding is for print jobs with pages that read by turning like the pages of a book.
    For more information about binding, seeFinishing tab features .
  • Tray size and type. Network administrators can use this feature to specify, in the driver, the paper size that is loaded into each available input tray. The use of forms constrains the choices that are available in the paper-size list on the Paper/Quality tab in the Printing Preferences driver tab set. This constraint prevents (or reduces the likelihood of) tying up the printer with paper-mount messages that occur when users request sizes or types that are not available.
    The trays listed on this screen include standard trays and optional accessory trays. Generally, items that are installed separately have a separate Installable Options setting.
    The input trays listed here are also listed as paper sources on the Paper/Quality tab.

Printing

Use the Printing screen to change the printing defaults for the printer.
Figure : Printing
  • Copies. This setting specifies the number of copies to print. This driver setting is useful for software programs that do not provide a copy count. If a copy count is available in the software program, set the copy count in the software program.
    The requested number of copies appears in the Copies option. Select the number by typing in the box or by using the up and down arrows on the right side of the text box. For the HP Color LaserJet CP2020 Series printer, valid entries are numbers from 1 to 9999. The copies value will not advance from the maximum number (9999) to 1 when the up arrow is used, or change from 1 to the maximum number (9999) when the down arrow is used.
    Invalid entries into the edit box (such as non-numerical input, numbers less than 1, or numbers greater than 9999) change to the last valid value that appeared in the box. The default number of copies is 1.
    Problems can develop when a software program and the driver it is running on both allow the user to set the number of copies to print. In most cases, the software program and the driver communicate, so that the number of copies set in one location (such as the program) appears in the other (such as the driver). For some software programs, this communication does not take place, and the copies values are treated independently. For example, setting 10 copies in the program and then setting 10 copies in the driver might result in the printer making 100 copies (10 x 10). Set the number of copies in the software program, whenever possible.
  • Orientation. Use this feature to choose the direction of the print job.
    • Portrait. The top edge of the document is the shorter edge of the paper. This is the default setting.
    • Landscape. The top edge of the document is the longer edge of the paper.

PCL5c

Use the PCL5c screen to change font information and form length.
Figure : PCL5c

PostScript

Use the PostScript screen to turn postscript error printing on or off.
Figure : PostScript
The Print PostScript errors setting specifies whether a PS error-handler message is sent. To get the printer to print an error page when an error occurs in the print job, click On.

Print Quality

Use the Print Quality screen to change when and how often the printer calibrates. You can also use the Calibrate Now button on this screen to cause the printer to calibrate.
