HP Deskjet 350 Series Printer - Infrared Printing Overview

Issue:
How is the Infrared Adapter used with the printer?
Solution
The HP Infrared Adapter (C3393A) plugs into the HP Deskjet 350 series printer, replacing the printer cable to provide a wireless connection to any IrDA-compliant computer. The infrared adapter supports data transmission speeds up to 115 Kbps.
DETAILS: See the sections below for more information on Infrared printing.
What Is IrDA?
The Infrared Data Association (IrDA) has established a worldwide industry standard for “point and beam” data transfer, allowing computers to link up with printers using an infrared connection.
Requirements
  • HP Deskjet 350 series printer
  • HP Infrared Adapter
  • Computer with infrared capability
  • IrDA-compliant software with printing features (obtained from computer manufacturer or operating system vendor)
Installing the HP Infrared Adapter on the printer
  1. Attach the HP Infrared Adapter to the printer's interface port.
  2. Place the printer within 1-meter (3 feet) of the PC.
  3. Ensure that the infrared port on the PC is pointed directly toward the HP Infrared Adapter. Move the printer or computer, if necessary.
      note:
    There should be no obstructions between the IR adapter and the computer's IR port that could block the signal.
  4. Swivel the lens of the HP Infrared Adapter so that the lens is pointing at the infrared port on the PC. Ensure that the HP Infrared Adapter is positioned within a 30-degree wide range of the PC’s infrared port.
  5. Turn on the printer. The indicator on the HP Infrared Adapter will light up when the printer is switched on.
Enabling infrared (IR) printing
The HP Deskjet 350 series printer supports IR printing only when used with Windows 98, Windows Millennium Edition (Me), Windows XP or Windows 2000. The following steps must be performed in order to enable IR printing.
  1. Enable the PC's IR port. This is typically done through a setting in the computer's BIOS or CMOS settings. Please refer to the guide that comes with your computer for instructions.
  2. Starting (booting) the computer after enabling the IR port should prompt for installation of the Windows 98, Windows Me, Windows XP or Windows 2000 IR software. If needed, insert the appropriate Windows 98, Windows Me, Windows XP or Windows 2000 installation CD into the CD-ROM drive and follow the instructions on the screen to complete the installation. Upon completion, there should be an infrared icon displayed in the Task Tray.
      note:
    The infrared icon is displayed in the Task Tray in Windows 98 always. The infrared icon is displayed in the Task Tray in Windows Me, Windows 2000, and Windows XP only when there is a good infrared connection. In Windows 2000 the icon is called Wireless Link.
  3. Ensure that the HP Deskjet 350 series printer software has been installed in your PC.
  4. Select Start, Settings, and then Printers.
  5. Verify that there is an icon in the Printers window for the HP Deskjet 350 Printer. If not, refer to the HP Deskjet 350 Series Printer User’s Guide or Customer Care Guide for driver installation instructions.
  6. Change the port setting in the printer driver to the infrared port created by the IR software.
      note:
    The IR port is typically a virtual COM or LPT port. The configuration screens for the IR software should indicate which port to use. In Windows 2000 select the IR Local Port.
    1. Select Start, Settings, and then Printers.
    2. Right-click the HP Deskjet 350 Printer icon and choose Properties.
    3. For Windows 98, select the Details tab. For Windows Me and Windows 2000, select the Ports tab.
    4. Set the port to the IR port created by the IR software.
    5. Choose OK to save the settings. Close the Printers window.
Print via IR using the HP Deskjet 350 series printer
  1. Ensure that the printer is on, the IR adapter is installed properly, and the infrared icon appears at the Task Tray.
  2. Open the document you wish to print.
  3. When you are ready to print the document, select File and then Print from within the application.
  4. Make sure the correct printer is selected and then choose Print or OK. The infrared icon in the Task Bar will change to show communication between the computer and printer.
      note:
    IR printing is typically slower than printing through a parallel cable. Allow some time for the printer to process the incoming data. Processing may require several minutes for complex documents.
