  15. 15. Print cartridges Three print cartridges can be used with the printer. 1 Black print cartridge 2 Tri-color print cartridge 3 Photo print cartridge For information about printing with the print cartridges, see Using print cartridges. For information about buying new print cartridges, see Replacing print cartridges. Using print cartridges The print cartridges can be used in the following ways: Everyday printing Use the black and tri-color print cartridges for everyday print jobs. Quality color photos For more vibrant colors when printing color photographs or other special documents, remove the black print cartridge and install a photo print cartridge. The photo print cartridge, in combination with the tri-color print cartridge, provides you with virtually grain-free photos. Replacing print cartridges When buying print cartridges, look for the print cartridge selection number. You can find the selection number in three places: ● Selection number label: Look at the label on the print cartridge that you are replacing. User's Guide 13
  16. 16. Chapter 3 1 Selection number label ● Printer documentation: For a list of print cartridge selection numbers, see the reference guide that came with the printer. ● HP Inkjet Toolbox: Open the HP Inkjet Toolbox and then select the Supplies panel. If a print cartridge runs out of ink, the printer can operate in ink-backup mode. For information about installing a replacement print cartridge, see the print cartridge installation page. 14 HP Deskjet 5700 Series
  17. 17. Ink-backup mode Use the ink-backup mode to operate the printer with only one print cartridge. The ink- backup mode is initiated when a print cartridge is removed from the print cartridge cradle. ● Ink-backup mode output ● Exiting ink-backup mode Ink-backup mode output Printing in ink-backup mode slows the printer and affects the quality of printouts. Installed print cartridge Result Black print cartridge Colors print as grayscale. Colors print but black is grayed and is not Tri-color print cartridge a true black. Photo print cartridge Colors print as grayscale. Note HP does not recommend using the photo print cartridge for ink-backup mode. Exiting ink-backup mode Install two print cartridges in the printer to exit ink-backup mode. For instructions about installing a print cartridge, see the print cartridge installation page. Automatic Paper-Type Sensor The Automatic Paper-Type Sensor automatically selects the print settings that are appropriate for the media that is being printed on, particularly when HP paper and media are being used. For more information, see How the Automatic Paper-Type Sensor works. How the Automatic Paper-Type Sensor works When the Automatic Paper-Type Sensor is engaged, the printer uses a red optical sensor light to scan the first page of a document and determine the best paper-type setting. After the paper-type setting is determined, the document is printed. For more information, see Using the Automatic Paper-Type Sensor. Caution Do not place the printer in direct sunlight. Direct sunlight can interfere with the Automatic Paper-Type Sensor. User's Guide 15

Follow these steps to activate the auto-off feature: 1 Open the HP Inkjet Toolbox. 2 Select the Configuration panel. 3 Follow the onscreen instructions. Aligning print cartridges The printer automatically aligns the print cartridges after a new print cartridge is installed. You can also align the print cartridges at other times to ensure optimal print quality. To align the print cartridges, follow these steps: 1 Load Letter or A4 plain, white paper in the In tray. 2 Open the HP Inkjet Toolbox. 3 Select the Calibrate panel. 4 Click the Align button, and then follow the onscreen instructions. Calibrating color Perform a color calibration only if the colors in photographs that are printed with the photo print cartridge are consistently tinted. Before performing a color calibration, align the print cartridges, and then reprint your photograph. If the color is still tinted, perform a color calibration. To calibrate color, follow these steps: 1 Load Letter or A4 plain, white paper in the In tray. 2 Verify that a photo print cartridge is installed in the printer. 3 Open the HP Inkjet Toolbox. 4 Select the Calibrate Color panel. 5 Follow the onscreen instructions.

  65. 65. Maintaining the printer body Because the printer ejects ink onto the paper in a fine mist, ink smudges will eventually appear on the printer case and adjacent surfaces. To remove smudges, stains, or dried ink from the exterior of the printer, use a soft cloth moistened with water. When cleaning the printer, keep these tips in mind: ● Do not clean the interior of the printer. Keep all fluids away from the interior. ● Do not use household cleaners or detergent. If a household cleaner or detergent has been used on the printer, wipe the exterior surfaces with a soft cloth moistened with water. ● Do not lubricate the support rod that the print cartridge cradle uses to slide back and forth. Noise is normal when the cradle moves back and forth. Removing ink from your skin and clothing Follow these instructions to remove ink from your skin and clothing: Surface Remedy Skin Wash the area with an abrasive soap. Wash the fabric in cold water and use White fabric chlorine bleach. Wash the fabric in cold water and use Color fabric sudsy ammonia. Caution Always use cold water to remove ink from fabric. Warm or hot water can set the ink into the fabric. User's Guide 63

Maintaining print cartridges The following tips will help maintain HP print cartridges and ensure consistent print quality: ● Keep all print cartridges in their sealed packages until they are needed. Print cartridges should be stored at room temperatures (15° to 35° C or 59° to 95° F). ● Do not remove the plastic tape covering the ink nozzles until you are ready to install the print cartridge in the printer. If the plastic tape has been removed from the print cartridge, do not attempt to reattach it. Reattaching the tape damages the print cartridge. For information about storing print cartridges if they are removed from the printer, see Storing print cartridges. User's Guide 65
