Travel tips

The following tips will help you prepare for traveling with your device:

  • If you are bringing an extra black or photo print cartridge, follow these guidelines: For a partially used black print cartridge or a partially used or full photo print cartridge, store it in the travel holder to prevent ink leakage (see Store printing supplies). A newly opened black print cartridge will leak slightly at high altitudes (such as in airplanes). To avoid this, wait to install new black cartridges until you reach your destination. Until then, keep them in their original, taped packaging.
  • You can bring the device in a carrying case. For more information, see HP supplies and accessories. The carrying case has compartments for both your notebook and the device. The compartments also detach if you want to carry the notebook and device separately.
  • Turn off the device using HP Officejet H470 User Manual 67 (Power button). This ensures that the print cartridges return to the home position at the left side of the device and lock in place.

HP Officejet H470 User Manual 87 WARNING! To help prevent damaging the device, wait until all lights have turned off completely before removing the battery or power cord. This process might take approximately 16 seconds.

  • Disconnect the device cable and power adapter from the device. Slide down the input tray extension and close the input tray.
  • If you are traveling to another country/region, bring the necessary plug adapter with you.
  • If you need to buy print cartridges while traveling to another country/region, see the online help called “Traveling with your HP Mobile Printer” for regional cartridge compatibility information. This help is available through the Toolbox (Windows), HP Printer Utility (Mac OS), or Toolbox software for PDAs (Pocket PC and Palm OS).

Chapter 1

  • Use only the power adapter that is supplied with the device. Do not use any other voltage transformer or converter. The power adapter can be used with AC power sources of 100 to 240 volts, 50 or 60 Hz.
  • Remove the battery if you will not be using the device for more than a month.
  • When traveling with photo paper, pack it flat so it doesn’t warp or curl. Photo paper should be flat before printing. If the corners of the photo paper curl more than 10 mm (3/8 inch), flatten the paper by putting it in the resealable storage bag, then rolling the bag on a table edge until the paper is flat.

This section contains the following topics:

About 802.11

802.11 wireless technology allows you to wirelessly connect to your device by setting up “ad hoc” communication between your computer and the device. 802.11 does not require a direct line of sight between the sending device and the receiving device.

When you set up ad hoc communication between your computer and the device, you are creating a network of two devices. This is the recommended setup for 802.11 printing to this mobile printer.

802.11 also lets you set up the device on an existing “infrastructure” network. Setting it up on an infrastructure network puts the device directly onto a local area network (LAN) using a wireless connection to an 802.11 wireless access point (WAP). Once the device is successfully connected to the network wirelessly, then all the computers on the same subnet can use the device.

Before setting up the device, it is recommended that you temporarily connect the device to the computer with a USB cable to set up the wireless connection. Once the wireless connection is established, you will remove the cable and print wirelessly. You can also set up the device without using a USB cable.

To set up and configure the device for 802.11 wireless printing, see 802.11 wireless connection.

Install and use 802.11 and Bluetooth accessories 17

Chapter 2

About Bluetooth

Bluetooth wireless technology allows you to wirelessly connect to your device using radio waves in the 2.4 GHz spectrum. Bluetooth is typically used for short distances (up to 10 meters or 30 feet) and does not require a direct line of sight between the sending device and the receiving device.

Different Bluetooth profiles emulate different types of standard cable connections and have different capabilities. For more information about Bluetooth profiles, see Configure Bluetooth wireless settings.

When your device is directly connected to your computer (either by cable or Bluetooth), it is possible to share it on a network using “printer sharing”. However, your computer has to be connected to the network for others to use the device.

To set up and configure the device for Bluetooth wireless printing, see Bluetooth wireless connection.

HP Officejet H470 User Manual 133 NOTE: To configure Bluetooth settings or monitor device status (such as ink levels) using the Toolbox, you must connect the device to your computer with a USB cable.

Use the device

This section contains the following topics:

Select print media

The device is designed to work well with most types of office media. It is best to test a variety of print media types before buying large quantities. Use HP media for optimum print quality. Visit the HP Web site at www.hp.com for more information about HP media.

This section contains the following topics:

Tips for selecting and using print media

For the best results, observe the following guidelines.

  • On models that have an input tray extension, make sure the input tray extension is fully extended.
  • Load media print-side up and aligned squarely against the alignment guides. For more information on loading media, see Load media.
  • Do not overload the trays. For more information, see Understand specifications for supported media.
  • To prevent jams, poor print quality, and other printing problems, avoid the following media:
    • Multipart forms
  • Media that is damaged, curled, or wrinkled
  • Media with cutouts or perforations

Use the device 19

Chapter 3

  • Media that is heavily textured, embossed, or does not accept ink well
  • Media that is too lightweight or stretches easily
  • Do not leave media in the input tray overnight. This might cause it to bend.
  • Remove each sheet of media as it prints and set aside to dry. Allowing wet media to stack up might cause smearing.
  • For instructions on calibrating color, see Calibrate color.

Cards and envelopes

  • Avoid envelopes that have a very slick finish, self-stick adhesives, clasps, or windows. Also avoid cards and envelopes with thick, irregular, or curled edges, or areas that are wrinkled, torn, or otherwise damaged.
  • Use tightly constructed envelopes, and make sure the folds are sharply creased.
  • Always load envelopes into the printer with the flap facing the back of the printer and the stamp position oriented according to the envelope icon.

HP Officejet H470 User Manual 137HP Officejet H470 User Manual 139HP Officejet H470 User Manual 137

Photo media

  • Use the Best mode to print photographs. Note that in this mode, printing takes longer and more memory is required from your computer.
  • Remove each sheet as it prints and set it aside to dry. Allowing wet media to stack up may cause smearing.
  • Photo paper should be flat before printing. If the corners of the photo paper curl more than 10 mm (3/8 inch), flatten the paper by putting it in a resealable plastic bag, and roll them into a tube. Roll the sheets so the curve of the tube is in the opposite direction of the original curl of the paper. Roll the tube no smaller than a 1.5 inch (4 cm) in diameter.
