|Fast, quiet, cheap ink, great for school Really bad support, software is overkill Speed ok. Quiet. Very easy to use if using HP products. Expensive cartridges with little ink. Color output stops when there is ink left. Output is beautiful. Printheads built into the ink carts. Cost per page! Smallish ink carts.|

Care and maintenance
The HP Photosmart 8200 series printer requires very little maintenance. Follow the guidelines in this chapter to extend the life span of the printer and printing supplies, and to ensure that the photos you print are always of the highest quality.
Cleaning and maintaining the printer
Keep the printer and ink cartridges clean and well maintained using the simple procedures in this section.
Cleaning the outside of the printer
1. 2. Turn off the printer, then disconnect the power cord from the back of the printer. Wipe the outside of the printer with a soft cloth that has been lightly moistened with water. Caution Do not use any type of cleaning solution. Household cleaners and detergents may damage the printer finish. Do not clean the interior of the printer. Keep all fluids away from the interior. Do not lubricate the metal rod on which the print head slides. Noise is normal when the print head moves back and forth.
Automatically cleaning the printhead
If you notice white lines or streaks on the photos you print, or in the color blocks of the self test report, use this procedure to clean the print head. Do not clean the print head unnecessarily, as this wastes ink and shortens the life of the ink nozzles on the print head. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Press Menu. Select Tools, then press OK. Select Clean printheads, then press OK. Following the directions on the printer screen, load letter or A4 unused plain white paper so the printer can print a self test report after cleaning the print head. Press OK to begin cleaning the print head. When the printer finishes cleaning the print head, it prints a self test report. If you are dissatisfied with the print quality in the self test report, repeat the cleaning. Recycle or discard the self test report.
If print quality still seems poor after you clean the print head, try aligning the printer using the procedure described in Aligning the printer. If print quality problems persist after cleaning and aligning, contact HP Customer Care.
Manually cleaning the ink cartridge contacts
Clean the copper-colored ink cartridge contacts if a message appears on the printer screen that says a cartridge is missing or damaged. Before cleaning the ink cartridge contacts, remove the ink cartridge and verify that nothing is covering the ink cartridge contacts or the ink cartridge slot, then reinstall the ink cartridge. If you continue to get a message that says a cartridge is missing or damaged, clean the ink cartridge contacts. If you still get this message after cleaning
the contacts, you will need a replacement ink cartridge. Remove the affected ink cartridge and look at the end-of-warranty date on the bottom, in YYYY/MMM/DD format. If it is before the end-of-warranty date, contact HP Customer Care to obtain a replacement ink cartridge. To clean the ink cartridge contacts: 1. Gather the following items to clean the contacts: Distilled, filtered, or bottled water (tap water may contain contaminants that can damage the ink cartridge) Caution Do not use platen cleaners or alcohol to clean the ink cartridge contacts. These can damage the ink cartridge or the HP Photosmart printer. Dry foam rubber swabs, lint-free cloth, or any soft material that will not come apart or leave fibers. Open the top cover of the printer. Squeeze the gray tab below an ink cartridge slot to release the gray latch inside the printer, then lift the latch. Caution Do not remove multiple ink cartridges at the same time. Remove and clean each ink cartridge one at a time. Do not leave the ink cartridge outside the printer for more than 30 minutes. 4. 5. Lightly moisten a swab or cloth with water and squeeze out any excess water. Hold the ink cartridge by its handle and gently wipe only the copper-colored contacts with the swab or cloth.
Gently wipe only the copper-colored contacts
6. 7. 8.
Place the ink cartridge back into the empty slot and press down on the gray latch until it clicks into place. Repeat if necessary for the other ink cartridges. Close the top cover. Caution The ink supply may become pressurized. Inserting a foreign object into the ink supply could result in ink being expelled and coming in contact with persons or property.
Printing a self test report
If you are experiencing problems with printing, print a self test report. This two-page reportlabelled the Extended Self Test Diagnostic Pagecan help you diagnose printing problems and can provide valuable information if you need to call HP customer support. You can also use this report to check on the approximate percentage of ink remaining in the ink cartridges. 1. 2. 3. Press Menu. Select Tools, then press OK. Select Print test page, then press OK.
The HP Photosmart prints a two-page self test report that contains the following information: Product information: Includes the model number, serial number, and other product information. Revision information: Includes the firmware version number and indicates whether or not you have an HP two-sided printing accessory (duplexer) installed. Ink delivery system information: Displays the approximate ink level of each installed ink cartridge, the status of each ink cartridge, the date each cartridge was installed, and the expiration date for each cartridge. Print head assembly information: Contains information that may be used for diagnostic purposes if you need to call HP customer support. Print head parameters: Contains information that may be used for diagnostic purposes if you need to call HP customer support. Print quality pattern: Displays six color blocks, representing each of the six installed cartridges. When streaks appear through the color blocks, or there are missing color blocks, clean the print head using the procedure described in Automatically cleaning the printhead. If the color blocks still show print quality problems after cleaning the print head, align the printer using the procedure described in Aligning the printer. If the color blocks continue to show print quality problems after cleaning and aligning, contact HP Customer Care. History log: Contains information that may be used for diagnostic purposes if you need to call HP customer support.
Self test report
Aligning the printer
Use the following procedure when the self test report shows streaking or white lines through any of the blocks of color. If you still have print quality problems after aligning the printer, try cleaning the print head using the procedure described in Automatically cleaning the printhead. If print quality problems persist after aligning and cleaning, contact HP Customer Care. 1. 2. 3. 4. Load letter or A4 unused plain white paper into the Main tray. Press Menu. Select Tools, then press OK. Select Align printer, then press OK. The printer aligns the print head, prints an alignment page, and calibrates the printer. Recycle or discard the alignment page.
Printing a sample page
You can print a sample page to test the printer photo printing quality and to make sure the paper is loaded correctly. 1. 2. 3. 4. Load paper in the Main tray. Use plain paper to conserve photo paper. Press Menu. Select Tools, then press OK. Select Print sample page, then press OK.
Photos are not printing correctly Solution You may have loaded the photo paper incorrectly. Load the photo paper with the side to be printed facing down. The photo paper may not have fed into the printer correctly. Try the following: Check for a paper jam. For more information, see Paper errors. Insert the photo paper as far as it will go into the Photo tray. Load one sheet of photo paper at a time.
The photos I marked for printing in the digital camera do not print Solution Some digital cameras let you mark photos for printing in both the camera's internal memory and on the memory card. If you mark photos in the internal memory, and then move photos from the camera's internal memory to the memory card, the marks do not transfer. Mark photos for printing after you transfer them from the digital camera's internal memory to the memory card.
