EN Installing the toner cartridge 9
Installing the toner cartridge
HP recommends use of HP LaserJet
toner cartridges. HP has designed the
printer, toner cartridges, and toner
formula to work together to give you
optimal image quality from your printer.
CAUTION
To prevent damage, do not expose the
toner cartridge to bright light. For
extended periods outside the printer,
place the cartridge in a closed drawer,
return it to the original packaging, or
cover it completely with a cloth.
To install your toner cartridge, you will
need to first remove the toner cartridge
from its packaging. (Save the packaging
for possible cartridge storage and
recycling.)
1To open the printer door, pull it
toward you in a forward motion using
both hands.
2Roll the toner cartridge back and
forth briskly to distribute the toner
evenly inside the cartridge.
3Grasp the end of the clear sealing
tape on the side of the cartridge. Pull
firmly to remove the entire length of
the tape. Once removed, the tape
should measure twice the length of
the toner cartridge or 490 mm (19.3
in).

10 Chapter 1 - Setup EN
4Hold the cartridge by the handle
(arrows facing the printer) and slide
it down and back into the printer.
The ends of the cartridge slide into
the black plastic grooves in the
printer. Push it firmly into place and
close the printer door.
Note
If toner gets on your clothing, wipe it off
with a dry cloth and wash clothing in
cold water. Hot water sets toner into
fabric.

EN Connecting printers cable and cord 11
Connecting printers cable and cord
Note
For best results, it is important that you
use an IEEE-1284 compliant parallel
cable, such as the HP LaserJet cable, to
connect the printer and computer. This
cable supports all of your printers
advanced printing capabilities.
Note
If your computer does not recognize your
printer, you may have a faulty cable.
1Connect a parallel cable to your
printer. Ensure the cable points in
the correct direction before inserting.
2Secure the cable by snapping the
two wire clips from the printer to the
cable. A secure cable helps prevent
communication problems between
the computer and printer.
3Connect the cable to a parallel port
on your computer. Secure the cable
by tightening the attached screws to
a parallel port.
CAUTION
Be sure to connect the cable to a parallel
port rather than a serial port. Connecting
to the wrong computer port can cause
damage. See your computers
documentation for more information
about the ports.
4Use only the power cord provided
with the printer. Connect the power
cord from the printer to a grounded
power strip or a wall outlet.

12 Chapter 1 - Setup EN
Using generic power strips and adapters
Note
HP does not recommend the use of
generic adapters (or power strips), like
the sample shown here, with your
printer.
WARNING!
Take care when plugging the printer into
a generic adapter, power strip or
universal power strip. When using a
universal power strip, align the printer
and computer power cords so they face
the same direction. It is essential that the
ground contact of the printer power cord
connect to the ground contact of the
power receptacle. You could sustain
serious injuries and cause damage to
your computer and printer if you insert
the printer cable plug incorrectly. Check
the adapter for specifications before
using it with your printer.
Once the power is connected, the
indicator lights on the printers control
panel will turn on and then blink in
sequence. The Error (top) light will stay
on if the paper input bin is empty.
You will not find an on/off switch on your
printer. After 15 minutes of inactivity, the
printer will automatically shift to a
powered-down state called SleepMode.
CAUTION
HP does not recommend use of battery
backup or uninterruptable power
supplies with your printer. Using them
could damage your printer.
EN Attaching the label to the printer 13
Attaching the label to the printer
A sheet of labels ships in the paper
output bin of your printer. You will need
to attach two labels to your printer: the
first label is entitled Remove and
Realign Paper Before Reloading," the
second label is entitled, "Do Not Switch
the Paper Path while Printing."
1Carefully remove labels from the
backing sheet. Attach labels to the
printers paper input bin.
2As the label indicates, always
remove and realign all paper before
reloading. By doing so, you can
reduce multiple paper feeds, paper
jams, or both.

14 Chapter 1 - Setup EN
Loading paper into the printer
Before loading paper into the printer,
raise the paper supports located behind
the paper input bin and the paper output
bin. Using paper supports can help
prevent unwanted paper curl and paper
jams.
1Raise the supports on the paper
input bin and on the paper output bin
until they snap into place.
2Insert up to 100 sheets of paper into
the paper input bin.
Note
Be careful not to overfill the bin.
3Center the paper using the paper
guides on the paper input bin.
To test your printer, you can print a self-
test page. To do so, make sure the
Ready (bottom) light is on and all other
indicator lights are off. Press and release
the control panel button. (If the printer is
in SleepMode [all lights are off], you will
need to press the control panel button
twice.) The Data (middle) light will come
on and the Ready (bottom) light will
blink. The self-test page prints.
Note
When adding paper to an existing stack
in the paper input bin, always remove
and realign all paper to avoid multiple
paper feeds, paper jams, or both.

EN Selecting the output paper path 29
Selecting the output paper path
CAUTION
To avoid paper jams, do not switch the
paper path lever once printer begins to
feed paper.
1Set the paper path lever to the upper
position to use the paper output bin.
By doing so, the sheets will stack in
the correct order.
2Set the paper path lever to the lower
position to use the heavy media
output slot. This straight-through
path is the best output option to print
postcards, transparencies, labels,
envelopes, and heavy paper (100- to
157-g/m2 [28- to 42-lb] bond weight).
CAUTION
If using the straight-through paper path,
do not allow more than one
transparency, 20 sheets of paper, or
other media to stack up in front of the
heavy media output slot. A paper jam
could result.
Adding paper
When adding paper to an existing stack
in the paper input bin, always remove
and realign all paper before reloading to
avoid multiple paper feeds or jams.

Using the single-sheet input slot
You can print one sheet of paper at a
time without unloading the paper input
bin. To do so, load one sheet into the
single-sheet input slot. The printer will
take from the single-sheet input slot
before it takes from the input bin.
Note
The single-sheet input slot is helpful to
use when the first page of your job is
different from the rest. For example, you
may want the first page of your print job
on letterhead, or you may want to print
an envelope first.
1Center the paper guides to the
approximate size of the sheet you
want to use.

EN Printing tasks 33
Printing tasks
Your printer capabilities include duplex printing, pausing between
pages, and stopping a print job. You can also reset your printer if
necessary.
Printing on both sides (duplexing)
When you print on both sides of a sheet, you may notice a difference
in the way the printer performs. When printing on the second side of
the sheet, you may experience some difficulties, such as getting the
sheet to feed into the printer or multiple feeds. In addition, the print
quality may be different on the second side of the sheet. To minimize
these problems, you will want to use paper meeting HP paper
specifications in appendix C.
1Print the first side of the sheet as you normally would. Some
software programs include options that are useful when duplex
printing, such as printing just the odd pages or the even
pages." Consult your software user manual.
2Allow the sheet to cool and flatten before printing on the second
side to get the best possible print quality.
3Print the second side by placing the sheet back into the paper
input bin or the single-sheet input slot. Make sure the side that
has already been printed is facing the back of the printer and the
top edge of the paper is down, as illustrated below.
34 Chapter 3 - Printing EN
Tips for duplex printing
To avoid paper curl, set the paper path lever to the lower position
and use the heavy media output slot for a straight-through paper
path.
To print one page at a time, select the manual feed option in your
software to pause the printer between pages.
Make certain that the sheets leading edge is not bent or curled.
Pausing the printer between pages
Occasionally, you may need the printer to pause so that you can load
special media, such as letterhead. If you specify manual feed in your
software, the printer will pause before printing the first page and
between each page you print. This will give you time to load the
special media.
1In your softwares printer menu or bin/tray selection, select the
manual feed mode.
2From your software, print the document. The Data light will blink
when the page is ready to print, indicating that the printer is
paused and waiting.
3After inserting the correct medium, the printer will pick the sheet
automatically. The printer will take media from the single-sheet
input slot first. If it does not find media in the single-sheet input
slot, it will take media from the paper input bin.
Resetting the printer
Resetting the printer accomplishes the following:
Clears all data from the printer memory (including unprinted data,
downloaded fonts, and macros).
Finishes printing the current page.
Removes some error conditions.
Resets the printer to its factory default settings.
To reset the printer
Press and hold the control panel button until the three indicator lights
begin to blink in succession (about 5 seconds), and then let go of the
button. After resetting, the Ready light will remain lit if no printer
errors are found.
EN Printing tasks 35
Stopping a print job
If the file you send to the printer is only one or two pages long, you
can stop the print job by resetting the printer as described above.
If you want to stop a large print job, see the steps below:
1Remove the media from the paper input bin except for any sheet
that is currently being fed into the printer.
2Stop and delete the print job through your software.
3Reset the printer.
36 Chapter 3 - Printing EN
Printing on special media
Your printer is designed to print on a variety of media, including
transparencies, envelopes, and custom-made paper. It is
recommended that you use media that meets HP specifications. See
appendix C for more information.
1Set the paper path lever to the lower position to use the heavy
media output slot for a straight-through paper path. This is
important when printing media such as postcards,
transparencies, labels, envelopes, and heavy paper (100- to 157-
g/m2 [28- to 42-lb] bond weight).
2Adjust the paper guides to the approximate size of media you are
using.
3Insert the media print side forward and top side down into the
single-sheet input slot or the paper input bin.
4Readjust the paper guides to center the media.
5Set the correct margins, paper size, and orientation in your
software.
6Choose Print in your software.
Additional tips for custom sizes
Do not print on media smaller than 76.2 mm (3 in) wide or 127
mm (5 in) tall.
Set margins of at least 6.4 mm (.25 in) in your software.
Always insert media lengthwise (vertically) into the printer. If you
want to print in landscape mode, make this selection through your
software.
EN Printing on special media 37
Additional tips for transparencies
To prevent transparency curl, remove the transparency as it comes
out of the printer and set it on a flat surface to cool.
WARNING! Use only transparencies specified for HP LaserJet printers.
Additional tips for printing labels
Do not use labels that are separating from the backing sheet or
that are wrinkled or damaged in any way.
Do not use any sheet of labels that has spaces in it where some
of the labels have been removed.
Do not feed a sheet of labels through your printer more than
once.
Note Use only labels specified for HP LaserJet printers.
38 Chapter 3 - Printing EN
Managing toner cartridge
It is recommended that you use HP LaserJet toner cartridge. HP has
designed the printer, toner cartridge, and toner formula to work
together to give you optimal image quality from your printer. To order
an HP LaserJet toner cartridge, see appendix A.
You can expect a toner cartridge to print approximately 2,500 pages
when you are printing typical business letters with text covering about
5% of the page. A page containing graphics uses more toner and
shortens the life of the cartridge.
Extending toner life through EconoMode
An excellent way to extend the life of your toner cartridge is by using
EconoMode. EconoMode uses approximately 50% less toner than
normal printing. The printed image is much lighter, but is adequate for
printing drafts or proofs. You can set the EconoMode option through
your software (see to Help for more information).
Note When printing a best-quality document, you must deselect the
EconoMode check box.
EN Managing toner cartridge 39
Extending toner life by redistributing toner
Areas of faded print are often an indicator that the toner cartridge is
near the end of its toner life. You can temporarily reestablish print
quality by redistributing the remaining toner in the cartridge. (This is
typically successful only one time.)
To redistribute toner
1Open the printer door and remove the toner cartridge.
2Hold the toner cartridge by the handle and pull it toward you so
that it slides out of the plastic grooves. (Remember to protect the
cartridge from light.)
3Briskly roll the toner cartridge back and forth to redistribute the
toner evenly inside the cartridge.
4Reinsert the toner cartridge and close the door.

Blank Page (Occasional) Page length and margins are
not set correctly for the paper
size.
Some sharing devices or
networks may generate a blank
page as a separator.
Your printer may be feeding two
or more sheets of paper at a
time because the paper is
difficult to separate.
Your software application may
be sending an extra page-eject
command.
If you are printing on small
paper and your page is
blank, try printing on larger
paper to see where the
image is printing. Adjust the
margins accordingly.
Contact your Network
Administrator.
Remove the paper from the
paper input bin and align the
edges of the paper. Break
the ream of paper by curving
it into an upside-down u-
shape; this may effectively
decrease multi-feeds. You
can also try turning the
paper around to feed the
opposite end first.
Check your softwares
printing configuration
information. If you are using
a word-processing program,
check for a natural page
break and a forced page
break that are close to each
other.

62 Chapter 4 - Troubleshooting EN
Networks and switchboxes
The printers status read-back feature requires a direct connection
between the printer and the computer. Most devices connected
between the printer and the host computer prevent the printer from
sending data back to the computer.
If you use a mechanical switchbox, follow these guidelines:
Do not switch while the printer is printing or receiving data (when
the Ready light is blinking).
Do not switch to a host computer that is OFF and then turn that
computer ON. The Ready light on the printer will blink as if the
computer is sending data. If the Error light is blinking, reset the
printer. To do so, press and hold the control panel button for five
seconds, and then send the job again.
Use a surge protector.
Out of memory
If the Error light is blinking, the page may be too complex for the
printers memory capacity. To clear this error, briefly press and
release the control panel button. Printing will resume; however, some
data loss may occur. To avoid this error in the future:
Reset the printer. To do so, press and hold the control panel
button for five seconds.
Set resolution to 300 dpi with your software.

Printer paper specifications
HP LaserJet printers produce excellent print quality. This printer
accepts a variety of media, such as cut-sheet paper (including
recycled paper), envelopes, labels, transparencies, vellum, and
custom-size paper. Properties such as weight, grain, and moisture
content are important factors affecting printer performance and output
quality.
The printer can use a variety of paper and other print media in
accordance with the guidelines in this manual. Paper that does not
meet these guidelines may cause the following problems:
Poor print quality
Increased paper jams
Premature wear on the printer, requiring repair
Hewlett-Packard Company cannot recommend the use of specific
brands. Because they are not HP products, HP cannot influence or
control their quality.
It is possible for paper to meet all of the guidelines in this manual and
still not produce satisfactory results. This might be the result of
improper handling, unacceptable temperature and humidity levels, or
other variables over which Hewlett-Packard has no control.
Always test paper before purchasing in large quantities. If you still
have questions, refer to the HP LaserJet Printer Family Paper
Specification Guide (English-only document). See the end of this
appendix for specific information.
Using paper outside HP specifications may cause problems for the
printer, requiring repair. This repair is not covered by the Hewlett-
Packard warranty or service agreements.
Supported paper sizes (printer)
Maximum supported paper size: 216 by 356mm (8.5 by 14 in)
Minimum supported paper size: 76 by 127mm (3 by 5 in)
EN Guidelines for using paper 77
Guidelines for using paper
For best results, use high-quality paper that is between 70 and
150g/m2 (20-lb bond). Make sure the paper is of good quality, and
free of cuts, nicks, tears, spots, loose particles, dust, wrinkles, voids,
and curled or bent edges.
If you are unsure what type of paper you are loading (such as bond or
recycled), check the label on the package of paper.
Some light-weight or poor-quality papers may cause print quality
problems, jamming, or damage to the printer.
Symptom Problem with Paper Solution
Poor print quality or toner
adhesion. Problems with
feeding.
Too moist, too rough, too
smooth, or embossed; faulty
paper lot.
Try another kind of paper.
Dropouts, jamming, curl. Stored improperly. Store paper flat in its moisture-
proof wrapping.
Increased gray background
shading. Too heavy. Use lighter paper.
Excessive curl.
Problems with feeding. Too moist, wrong grain
direction or short-grain
construction.
Use long-grain paper. Print
using the heavy media output
slot.
Jamming, damage to printer. Cutouts or perforations. Do not use paper with cutouts
or perforations.
Problems with feeding. Ragged edges. Use good quality paper.
78 Appendix C - Paper specifications EN
Labels
Label construction
When selecting labels, consider the quality of each component:
Arrangement: Only use labels with no exposed backing between
them. Labels can peel off sheets with spaces between the labels,
causing serious jams.
Curl: Prior to printing, labels must lie flat with no more than 13
mm (0.5 in) of curl in any direction.
Condition: Do not use labels with wrinkles, bubbles, or other
indications of separation.
Envelopes
Envelope construction
Envelope construction is critical. Envelope fold lines can vary
considerably, not only between manufacturers, but also within a box
from the same manufacturer. Successful printing on envelopes
depends upon the quality of the envelopes. When selecting
envelopes, consider the following components:
Weight: The weight of the envelope paper should not exceed 105
g/m2 (28 lb), or jamming may result.
Construction: Prior to printing, envelopes should lie flat with less
than 6mm (0.25 in) curl and should not contain air. (Envelopes
that trap air may cause problems.)
Condition: Make sure envelopes are not wrinkled, nicked, or
otherwise damaged.
Sizes: From 90 by 160 mm (3.5 by 6.3 in) to 178 by 254 mm (7 by
10 in).
EN Guidelines for using paper 79
Envelopes with double-side seams
Double-side-seam construction has vertical seams at both ends of
the envelope rather than diagonal seams. This style may be more
likely to wrinkle. Be sure the seam extends all the way to the corner of
the envelope as illustrated below.
Envelope storage
Proper storage of envelopes helps contribute to good print quality.
Envelopes should be stored flat. If air is trapped in an envelope,
creating an air bubble, the envelope may wrinkle during printing.
Card stock and heavy media
Many types of card stock can be printed from the paper input tray,
including index cards and postcards. Some card stock performs
better than others because its construction is better suited for feeding
through a laser printer.
For optimum printer performance, do not use paper heavier than
163g/m2 (43 lb). Paper that is too heavy might cause misfeeds,
stacking problems, paper jams, poor toner fusing, poor print quality, or
excessive mechanical wear.
Note Printing on heavier paper may be possible if the tray is not filled to
capacity, and paper with a smoothness rating of 100-180 Sheffield is
used.
Acceptable
Unacceptable
80 Appendix C - Paper specifications EN
Card stock construction
Smoothness: 135-163 g/m2 (36-43 lb) card stock should have a
smoothness rating of 100-180 Sheffield. 60-135 g/m2 (16-36 lb)
card stock should have a smoothness rating of 100-250 Sheffield.
Construction: Card stock should lie flat with less than 5 mm
(0.2 in) of curl.
Condition: Make sure card stock is not wrinkled, nicked, or
otherwise damaged.
Sizes: Use only card stock within the following size ranges:
Minimum: 76 by 127 mm (3 by 5 in) Maximum: 216 by 356 mm
(8.5 by 14 in).
Card stock guidelines
If cards curl or jam, print using the heavy media output slot. Set
margins at least 2 mm (0.08 inch) away from the edges of the
paper.

IN Memasang toner cartridge 9
Memasang toner cartridge
HP merekomendasikan penggunaan
toner cartridge HP LaserJet. HP telah
merancang printer, toner cartridge, dan
formula toner bekerja terpadu untuk
memberikan kualitas gambar yang
optimal dari printer Anda.
PERHATIAN
Untuk mencegah kerusakan, jangan
mengarahkan toner cartridge ke cahaya
yang terang. Jika cartridge berada di
luar printer untuk jangka waktu yang
lama, simpan di dalam laci tertutup,
kembalikan ke kemasan semula, atau
bungkus dengan kain.
Untuk memasang toner cartridge,
pertama-tama Anda harus
mengeluarkan cartridge dari
kemasannya. (Simpan kemasannya
untuk tempat cartridge jika diperlukan
dan pendauran ulang.)
1Untuk membuka pintu printer,
tariklah ke arah Anda dengan
gerakan maju dengan menggunakan
kedua tangan.
2Gerakkan toner cartridge maju dan
mundur dengan cepat untuk
meratakan toner di dalam cartridge.
3Pegang ujung pita perekat di sisi
cartridge. Tarik dengan kuat untuk
melepaskan keseluruhan pita.
Setelah dilepas, ukuran pita harus
dua kali panjang toner cartridge atau
sepanjang 490 mm (19,3 inci).

pegangannya (panah menghadap
printer) dan masukkan ke bawah
kembali ke dalam printer. Ujung
cartridge masuk ke dalam celah
plastik di dalam printer. Tekan
dengan kuat ke tempatnya lalu tutup
pintu printer.
Catatan
Jika toner mengenai baju Anda,
bersihkan
dengan kain kering lalu cuci di
air dingin. Air panas akan meresap toner
ke dalam kain.

IN Menghubungkan kabel printer 11
Menghubungkan kabel printer
Catatan
Untuk hasil terbaik, sangatlah penting
bagi Anda untuk menggunakan kabel
paralel IEEE-1284, seperti kabel
HP LaserJet untuk menghubungkan
printer dengan komputer. Kabel ini
mendukung seluruh kemampuan
pencetakan printer.
Catatan
Jika komputer tidak mengenali printer,
mungkin Anda menggunakan kabel yang
salah.
1Hubungkan kabel paralel ke printer
Anda. Pastikan kabel menunjuk ke
arah yang benar sebelum
dimasukkan.
2Amankan kabel dengan menjepitkan
kedua jepitan dari printer ke kabel.
Kabel yang diamankan membantu
mencegah masalah komunikasi
antara komputer dan printer.
3Hubungkan kabel ke port paralel
komputer Anda. Amankan kabel
dengan mengencangkan sekrup
yang ada di port paralel.
PERHATIAN
Pastikan bahwa kabel terhubung ke port
paralel, bukan port serial.
Menghubungkan ke port yang salah bisa
menyebabkan kerusakan. Untuk

12 Bab 1 - Pengaturan IN
Menggunakan sambungan listrik generik dan
adaptor
Catatan
HP tidak merekomendasikan
penggunaan adaptor generik (atau
sambungan listrik) pada printer Anda
seperti contoh yang diperlihatkan di sini.
PERINGATAN!
Hati-hati bila memasang printer pada
adaptor generik atau sambungan listrik.
Bila menggunakan sambungan listrik,
atur kabel printer dan komputer supaya
menghadap arah yang sama. Sangatlah
penting kontak ground kabel printer
terhubung ke kontak ground stopkontak
listrik. Anda bisa mengalami cedera
yang serius dan menyebabkan
kerusakan pada komputer dan printer
jika salah memasukkan colokan kabel
printer. Periksalah spesifikasi adaptor
sebelum menggunakannya pada printer
Anda.
Setelah listrik tersambung, lampu
indikator pada panel kontrol printer akan
menyala lalu berkedip teratur. Lampu
Salah (atas) akan menyala bila wadah
masukan kertas kosong.
Anda tidak akan menemukan sakelar on/
off pada printer. Setelah tidak aktif
selama 15 menit, printer secara otomatis
akan beralih ke situasi rendah daya yang
disebut Modus Tidur.
PERHATIAN
HP tidak merekomendasikan
penggunaan baterai cadangan atau UPS
dengan printer Anda. Penggunaan
tersebut bisa merusak printer Anda..
IN Menempelkan label pada printer 13
Menempelkan label pada printer
Lembaran label-label ada di wadah
keluaran kertas printer. Anda perlu
menempelkan dua label pada printer:
label pertama bertuliskan Remove and
Realign Paper Before Reloading," label
kedua bertuliskan, "Do Not Switch the
Paper Path while Printing."
1Lepaskan label dengan hati-hati dari
lembarannya. Tempelkan label pada
wadah masukan kertas printer.
2Seperti tertera pada label, selalu
keluarkan dan susun kembali kertas
sebelum dimasukkan kembali.
Dengan demikian, tidak akan terjadi
pemasukan beberapa lembar kertas
sekaligus, kertas macet, atau
keduanya.

14 Bab 1 - Pengaturan IN
Memasukkan kertas ke dalam printer
Sebelum memasukkan kertas ke dalam
printer, naikkan penyangga kertas yang
terletak di belakang wadah masukan
kertas dan wadah keluaran kertas.
Menggunakan penyangga kertas dapat
membantu mencegah lipatan kertas dan
kemacetan kertas yang tidak diinginkan.
1Naikkan penyangga pada wadah
masukan kertas dan pada wadah
keluaran kertas sampai pada
tempatnya.
2Masukkan 100 lembar kertas ke
dalam wadah masukan kertas.
Catatan
Hati-hati jangan mengisi wadah terlalu
penuh.
3Tengahkan kertas dengan
menggunakan pemandu kertas
pada wadah masukan kertas.
Untuk menguji printer, Anda bisa
melakukan uji cetak. Untuk
melakukannya, pastikan lampu Siaga
(bawah) menyala dan lampu-lampu
indikator lainnya mati. Tekan dan
lepaskan tombol panel kontrol. (Jika
printer berada pada Modus Tidur [semua
lampu mati], Anda harus menekan
tombol panel kontrol dua kali.) Lampu
Data (tengah) akan menyala dan lampu
Siaga (bawah) akan berkedip. Uji cetak
sendiri bekerja.
Catatan
Saat menambah kertas pada tumpukan
kertas yang ada di wadah masukan
kertas, selalu keluarkan dan susun
kembali kertas untuk menghindari
pemasukan kertas beberapa lembar
sekaligus, kemacetan kertas, atau
keduanya.

Tugas-tugas pencetakan
Kemampuan printer Anda termasuk pencetakan dupleks, berhenti
sementara antar halaman, dan menghentikan pencetakan. Jika perlu,
Anda juga bisa mengatur ulang printer.
Mencetak di kedua sisi (dupleks)
Jika Anda mencetak di kedua sisi lembaran, Anda akan melihat
perbedaan cara kerja printer. Pada saat mencetak pada lembar sisi
kedua, mungkin Anda mengalami kesulitan, misalnya memasukkan
lembaran ke dalam printer atau beberapa lembar pengumpanan.
Selain itu, kualitas cetak mungkin berbeda pada sisi kedua lembaran.
Untuk meminimalkan masalah-masalah tersebut, Anda mungkin ingin
menggunakan kertas yang sesuai dengan spesifikasi kertas HP di
lampiran C.
1Cetak sisi pertama lembaran seperti biasa. Ada program
perangkat lunak yang memberi pilihan yang berguna untuk
pencetakan dupleks, misalnya hanya mencetak halaman ganjil
atau halaman genap." Lihat buku petunjuk perangkat lunak.
2Untuk mendapatkan kualitas cetak terbaik, biarkan lembaran
dingin dan ratakan sebelum mencetak sisi kedua.
3Cetak sisi kedua dengan menempatkan lembaran kembali ke
wadah masukan kertas atau ke slot masukan satu lembar.
Pastikan sisi yang sudah dicetak menghadap ke belakang printer
dan ujung atas kertas menghadap ke bawah, seperti terlihat pada
gambar di bawah ini.
34 Bab3 - Mencetak IN
Tip untuk pencetakan dupleks
Untuk menghindari kertas kusut, atur tuas jalur kertas ke posisi
bawah dan gunakan slot keluaran media tebal untuk jalur kertas
lintasan lurus.
Untuk mencetak satu lembar per satu lembar, pilih pengumpanan
manual pada perangkat lunak untuk menghentikan printer setiap
mencetak satu lembar.
Pastikan ujung lembaran tidak menekuk atau kusut.
Menghentikan sementara printer antar
halaman
Kadangkala, Anda perlu menghentikan printer sementara sehingga
Anda bisa memasukkan media khusus, misalnya kop surat. Jika Anda
memilih pengumpanan manual pada perangkat lunak, printer akan
berhenti sementara sebelum mencetak halaman pertama dan antar
setiap halaman yang Anda cetak. Dengan demikian akan
memberikan Anda waktu untuk memasukkan media khusus.
1Pada menu perangkat lunak printer atau pemilihan wadah, pilih
modus Pengumpanan manual.
2Dari perangkat lunak, cetaklah dokumen. Lampu Data akan
berkedip bila halaman siap dicetak, menandakan printer berhenti
sementara dan menunggu.
3Setelah memasukkan media yang benar, printer akan mengambil
lembaran tersebut secara otomatis. Printer akan mengambil
media dari slot masukan satu lembar dahulu. Jika tidak
menemukan media di slot masukan satu lembar, printer akan
mengambil media dari wadah masukan kertas.
Mengatur ulang printer
Mengatur ulang printer menyebabkan hal-hal berikut ini:
Menghapus semua data dari memori printer (termasuk data yang
belum dicetak, font yang diambil dari internet, dan makro-makro).
Menyelesaikan pencetakan halaman yang sedang berlangsung.
Menghapus kondisi kesalahan.
Mengatur ulang printer ke pengaturan awal.
IN Tugas-tugas pencetakan 35
Untuk mengatur ulang printer
Tekan dan tahan tombol panel kontrol sampai ketiga lampu indikator
mulai berkedip berurutan (sekitar 5 detik), lalu lepaskan tombol.
Setelah diatur ulang, lampu Siaga akan tetap menyala jika tidak
ditemukan kesalahan printer.
Menghentikan pencetakan
Jika file yang Anda kirim ke printer panjangnya hanya satu atau dua
halaman, Anda bisa menghentikan pencetakan dengan mengatur
ulang printer seperti yang diuraikan diatas.
Jika Anda ingin menghentikan pencetakan yang banyak, lihat
langkah-langkah dibawah ini:
1Keluarkan media dari wadah masukan kertas kecuali lembar
yang sedang dimasukkan ke dalam printer.
2Hentikan dan hapus pencetakan melalui perangkat lunak.
3Atur ulang printer.
36 Bab3 - Mencetak IN
Mencetak pada media khusus
Printer Anda dirancang untuk mencetak berbagai media, termasuk
transparansi, amplop, dan kertas buatan tertentu. Disarankan Anda
menggunakan media yang sesuai dengan spesifikasi HP. Untuk
informasi lebih lanjut, lihat lampiran C.
1Atur tuas jalur kertas ke posisi bawah untuk menggunakan slot
keluaran media tebal untuk jalur kertas lintasan lurus. Hal ini
penting saat mencetak media seperti kartu pos, transparansi,
label, amplop, dan kertas tebal (100 sampai 157 g/m2 [28 sampai
42 pon]).
2Atur pemandu kertas sesuai ukuran media yang Anda gunakan.
3Masukkan media dengan bagian yang dicetak di muka dan
terbalik ke dalam slot masukan satu lembar atau wadah masukan
kertas.
4Atur kembali pemandu kertas supaya media berada ditengah.
5Atur margin yang benar, ukuran kertas, dan orientasi melalui
perangkat lunak.
6Pilih Cetak pada perangkat lunak.
Tip tambahan untuk ukuran tertentu
Jangan mencetak pada media yang lebarnya lebih kecil dari 76,2
mm (3 inci) atau yang tingginya kurang dari 127 mm ( 5 inci).
Atur margin sekurangnya 6,4 mm (0,25 inci) pada perangkat
lunak Anda.
Selalu masukkan media menurut panjangya (vertikal) ke dalam
printer. Jika Anda ingin mencetak dalam modus landscape,
lakukan melalui perangkat lunak.
IN Mencetak pada media khusus 37
Tip tambahan untuk transparansi
Untuk mencegah transparansi kusut, angkat transparansi begitu
keluar dari printer dan letakkan di permukaan yang rata hingga
dingin.
PERINGATAN! Gunakanlah hanya transparansi yang diperuntukkan printer HP
LaserJet.
Tip tambahan untuk mencetak label
Jangan menggunakan label yang terpisah dari lembar
perekatnya atau label yang berkerut atau rusak.
Jangan menggunakan lembaran label yang sebagian labelnya
sudah dilepas.
Jangan memasukkan lembaran label ke dalam printer lebih dari
sekali.
Catatan Gunakan hanya label yang diperuntukkan printer HP LaserJet.
38 Bab3 - Mencetak IN
Menangani toner cartridge
Anda dianjurkan menggunakan toner cartridge HP LaserJet. HP
telah merancang printer, toner cartridge, dan formula toner untuk
bekerjasama untuk memberikan kualitas gambar optimal dari printer
Anda. Untuk memesan toner cartridge HP LaserJet, lihat lampiran A.
Anda bisa mengharapkan toner cartridge mencetak sekitar 2500
halaman bila Anda mencetak surat-surat biasa dengan jumlah teks
sekitar 5% dari setiap halaman. Halaman yang berisi gambar
menggunakan lebih banyak toner dan memperpendek masa pakai
cartridge.
Memperpanjang usia toner melalui Modus Ekonomi
Cara terbaik untuk memperpanjang usia pakai toner cartridge Anda
adalah dengan menggunakan Modus Ekonomi. Modus Ekonomi
menggunakan toner sekitar 5% lebih sedikit dibandingkan
pencetakan normal. Hasil cetakan agak pudar, tetapi cukup baik
untuk mencetak draft atau contoh. Anda bisa mengatur pilihan Modus
Ekonomi melalui perangkat lunak (lihat Bantuan untuk informasi lebih
lanjut).
Catatan Saat mencetak dokumen kualitas terbaik, jangan memilih Modus
