Media paths

The following sections describe the input trays, output bins, and media paths.

Single-sheet priority input slot (Tray 1)

You should use the single-sheet priority input slot when feeding one sheet of paper, envelope, postcard, label, or transparency. You can also use the single-sheet priority input slot to print the first page on different media than the rest of the document.

Media guides ensure that the media is correctly fed into the printer and that the print is not skewed (crooked on the media). When loading media, adjust the media guides to match the width of the media that you are using.
HP Laserjet 1320n Manual User Manual 7

NoteThe printer automatically prints from the single-sheet priority input slot before printing from
the main input tray.
See Choosing paper and other media for more information about media types.

Main input tray (Tray 2)

The enclosed main input tray, accessed from the front of the printer, holds up to 250 sheets of 20 lb paper or other media.

The main input tray supports paper with the following specifications:

Weight: Up to 60 to 105 g/m2 (16 to 28 lb.).

Size: From 147 x 211 mm (5.8 x 8.27 inches) to 216 x 356 mm (8.5 x 14 inches).

ENWW Media paths 7

Media guides ensure that the media is correctly fed into the printer and that the print is not skewed (crooked on the media). The main input tray has both side and rear media guides. When loading media, adjust the media guides to match the length and width of the media that you are using.
HP Laserjet 1320n Manual User Manual 9

Straight-through output path

The straight-through output path is useful when you are printing envelopes, transparencies, heavy media, or any media that tends to curl when printed. Printed media exits in reverse order when the straight-through output door is open.
HP Laserjet 1320n Manual User Manual 11

NotePrinted media does not stack when you use the straight-through output path. The media
drops to the surface below unless you remove each sheet as it exits the printer.

8 Chapter 1  Printer basics ENWW

Output bin

The output bin is located on the top of the printer. Printed media is collected here in the correct sequence when the straight-through output door is closed. The media support provides improved stacking for large print jobs. Use the output bin when printing normal and large, collated documents.
HP Laserjet 1320n Manual User Manual 13

Printer Properties (driver)

Printer Properties control the printer. You can change the default settings, such as media size and type, printing multiple pages on a single sheet of media (N-up printing), resolution, and watermarks. You can access the printer Properties in the following ways:

  • Through the software application that you are using to print. This only changes the settings for the current software application.
  • Through the Windows operating system. This changes the default settings for all future print jobs.

Because many software applications use a different method of accessing the printer Properties, the following section describes the most common methods used in Windows 98, 2000, Me, and Windows XP.

To only change the settings for the current software application

Although the steps can vary between software applications, this is the most common method.

  1. From the File menu in the software application, click Print.
  1. On the Print dialog, click Properties.
  1. Change the settings, and click OK.

12 Chapter 1  Printer basics ENWW

To change the default settings for all future print jobs in Windows 98, 2000, and Me

  1. In the Windows task bar, click Start, select Settings, and click Printers.
  1. Right-click the HP LaserJet 1160 or HP LaserJet 1320 series printer icon.
  1. Click Properties (in Windows 2000, you can also click Printing Preferences).
  1. Change the settings, and click OK.

Note In Windows 2000, many of these features are available from the Printing Preferences menu.

To change the default settings for all future print jobs in Windows XP

  1. Right-click the HP LaserJet 1160 or HP LaserJet 1320 series printer icon.
  1. Click Properties, or click Printing Preferences.
  1. Change the settings, and click OK.

Print setting priorities

There are three ways to change print settings for this printer: in the software application, in the printer driver, and in the HP toolbox. For the HP LaserJet 1320 series printer, you can also change print settings through the embedded Web server. Changes made to print settings are prioritized according to where the changes are made, as follows:

  • Changes made in the software application override settings changed anywhere else. Within a software application, changes made in the Page Setup dialog box override changes made in the Print dialog box.
  • Changes made in the printer driver (printer Properties dialog box) override settings in the HP toolbox. Changes made in the printer driver do not override settings in the software application.
  • Changes made in the HP toolbox and the embedded Web server have the lowest priority.

If a particular print setting can be changed in more than one of the ways listed above, use the method that has the highest priority.

Printer Properties online help

The printer Properties (driver) online help includes specific information about the functions in the printer Properties. This online help guides you through the process of changing your printer’s default settings. For some drivers, online Help gives instructions on using context-sensitive Help. Context-sensitive Help describes the options for the driver feature you are currently accessing.

To access the printer Properties online help

  1. From the software application, click File, and then click Print.
  1. Click Properties, and then click Help.

Software for Windows

The following software is available to all users of the printer.

Printer drivers

A printer driver is the software component that provides access to printer features and provides the means for the computer to communicate with the printer. Choose a printer driver based on the way you use the printer.

  • Use the PCL 5e printer driver if you need print results to look consistent with those from older HP LaserJet printers. Certain features are not available in this printer driver. (Do not use the PCL 5e driver for this printer with older printers.)
  • Use the PCL 6 printer driver to take full advantage of the printer features

(HP LaserJet 1320 series printer only). Unless complete backward compatibility with previous PCL drivers or older printers is necessary, the PCL 6 driver is recommended.

  • Use the PS printer driver for compatibility with PostScript (HP LaserJet 1320 series printer only). Certain printer features are not available in this printer driver.

The printer automatically switches between PS and PCL printer languages depending on the driver you have selected.

Available printer drivers

The following printer drivers are included with the printer.
