Read How to Sail Across HP Printer Problems
Hardly there is any brand in the market that holds as much diversification and patent in printer technology as HP does. It has pampered users across all segments including home, business, enterprises and government through its Photo smart, Office jet, Officejet Pro, All all-in-one, Deskjet and other printer series. It is known to be the pioneer when it comes to wireless or ePrint technology. Unlike other printer brands that induce 802.1 1b/g/n wireless and HP ePrint features with selected models, HP has made it basic. A few do bear HP AirPrint to entertain the users of iPad, iPod and iPhone.
Panel of experts at HP Support is quite polite to help new beginners. It will help you to setup, configure and network your system as per your choice either with the wired network or wireless one. Right printer settings can help you to save ink, paper and time all. Learn tips as how to use Draft or Economy Mode. To change the setting to Draft, in ‘Printing Preferences’, select ‘Draft’ and click ‘OK’. It saves your ink when you require average print-out quality.
However, to print important documents or images return to the ‘Best’ or ‘Normal’ mode. Put HP printer in Standby Mode if you need it frequently as the regular turn ON or OFF consumes extra ink and electricity during the initialization process. Avoid the habit of interrupting the print job while the cartridge is moving. This can not only damage the printer head, but can also cause the ink at the nozzle tip to dry up. This can block the nozzle and cause the ink to leak. Customize your printer to Black & White/ Grayscale mode to print text documents that won’t require color printing. Without that the printer color cartridges might mix different colors to form black. To get out of the printer jam issues it is advised to follow the manufacturer manual.
HP Technical Support is an abode of solutions. You can rely upon it to fix frequently incurred problems. Get drivers, firmware and software patches for your machine directly from it. Run HP Printer diagnostic tools to sort out difficult problems, it is available freely for all. Puzzled with printer driver’s incompatibility on your Windows 7-based system? Run the HP Printer Install Wizard. Remember, it works with products connected with a USB cable or with a wired (Ethernet) or wireless network connection. If you would like to connect your product wirelessly, but it is not yet on a wireless network, you need to temporarily connect the product with a USB cable to run the wizard. Take help of video tutorials, in case, there is any issues with the wizard. It will automatically detect the right driver, and you have just click on the download button to get it.
Rather than taking leap to HP Customer Support every time, it is better to give care and maintenance to your printer. Be careful not to tear the paper when it is stuck. If a small piece of paper is left in the printer, it could cause additional jams. Also make sure that correct paper size is used. Interpret the message displayed on the printer's control panel and take corrective measures. If a message reflects any pending print job then press “Go” to print or press “Cancel Job” to clear it from printer's memory.
