If you need to call HP, it is often useful to print the printer status report before calling.


Printer Information: Shows printer information (such as the printer name, model
number, serial number, and firmware version number), the accessories that are
installed (such as the automatic two-sided printing accessory or duplexer), and
the number of pages printed from the trays and accessories.


Ink Delivery System Information: Shows the estimated ink levels (represented
in graphical form as gauges) and the part numbers and warranty expiration dates
for the ink cartridges.

NOTE: Ink level warnings and indicators provide estimates for planning
purposes only. When you receive a low-ink warning message, consider
having a replacement cartridge available to avoid possible printing delays.
You do not need to replace cartridges until prompted to do so.


Additional Assistance: Provides information about where you can go to get
more information about the printer, as well as information about how to set up a
Fax Text and how to run a Print Wireless Network Test.
