Manage Power

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

Sleep mode

Power usage is reduced while in Sleep mode. The printer goes into low-power mode after 5 minutes of inactivity.

To change the time to Sleep mode:

  1. Open the embedded web server (EWS). For more information, see Open the embedded web server.
  1. Click the Settings tab.
  1. In the Power Management section, click Energy Save Mode and select the desired option.
  1. Click Apply.
Auto-Off

Auto-Off is automatically enabled by default when you turn on the printer. When Auto-Off is enabled, the printer will automatically turn 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. For printer models with wireless or Ethernet network capability, Auto-Off is automatically disabled when the printer establishes a wireless or Ethernet network connection. Even when Auto-Off is disabled, the printer enters Sleep mode after 5 minutes of inactivity to help reduce energy use.

  1. Open the embedded web server (EWS). For more information, see Open the embedded web server.
  1. Click the Settings tab.
  1. In the Power Management section, click Auto Off and select the desired option.

Hp Officejet Pro 6230 User Manual 3 CAUTION: Always turn the printer off properly, using either Auto-Off or Hp Officejet Pro 6230 User Manual 5 (the Power button).

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.
  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 quality in the printer driver 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.
