  1. Optimize Printing Supplies

Manage Power

To conserve electricity, the printer comes with the following features:

Sleep mode

Power usage is reduced while in Sleep mode. After initial setup of printer, the printer goes into low-power mode after 5 minutes of inactivity.

To change the time to Sleep mode

  1. From the printer control panel, touch the HP Officejet 7610 User Manual 1 (eco button), touch Sleep, and then touch the desired option.

HP Officejet 7610 User Manual 3 NOTE: If you change your country or region from the printer control panel, the time to sleep mode is automatcially set to the default, which is 5 minutes.

Auto- off

This feature turns the printer off after 2 hours of inactivity to help reduce energy use. Auto-Off turns the printer off completely, so you must use the Power button to turn the printer back on. If your printer supports this energy saving feature, Auto-Off is automatically enabled or disabled depending on printer capabilities and connection options. Even when Auto-Off is disabled, the printer enters Sleep mode after 5 minutes of inactivity to help reduce energy use.

  1. Auto-Off is enabled when the printer is turned on, if the printer does not have network, fax or Wi-Fi Direct capability, or is not using these capabilities.
  1. Auto-Off is disabled when a printer’s wireless or Wi-Fi Direct capability is turned on or when a printer with fax, USB, or Ethernet network capability establishes a fax, USB, or Ethernet network connection.

Schedule On and Off

Use the printer’s Schedule On and Off feature, and then select the days and time you want the printer to turn on and turn off automatically. For example, you can schedule the printer to turn on at 8 a.m. and turn off at 8 p.m. from Monday to Friday. In this way, you will save energy during the night and weekends.

To configure the printer’s Schedule On and Off feature

  1. From the printer control panel, touch the HP Officejet 7610 User Manual 1 (eco button), touch Schedule On and Off, and then set the time to turn on and off the printer.

ENWW HP EcoSolutions (HP and the Environment) 3

HP Officejet 7610 User Manual 7 CAUTION: HP recommends that you replace a missing ink cartridge as soon as possible to avoid print quality issues and possible extra ink usage or damage to the ink system. Never turn off the printer when a cartridge is missing.

Optimize Printing Supplies

To optimize printing supplies such as ink and paper, try the following:

  1. Recycle used original HP ink cartridges through HP Planet Partners. For more information, visit www.hp.com/recycle.
  1. Optimize paper usage by printing on both sides of the paper. If the printer has an HP automatic two-sided printing accessory (duplexer), see Print on both sides (duplexing) on page 38.
  1. Save ink and paper when printing web content with HP Smart Print. For more information, visit www.hp.com/go/smartprint.
  1. Change the print mode to a draft setting. The draft setting uses less ink.
  1. Do not clean the printhead unnecessarily. Doing so wastes ink and shortens the life of the cartridges.
