HP Universal Print Driver (UPD)
The HP Universal Print Driver (UPD) for Windows is a single driver that gives you instant access to
virtually any HP LaserJet product, from any location, without downloading separate drivers. It is built on
proven HP print driver technology and has been tested thoroughly and used with many software
programs. It is a powerful solution that performs consistently over time.
The HP UPD communicates directly with each HP product, gathers configuration information, and then
customizes the user interface to show the product’s unique, available features. It automatically enables
features that are available for the product, such as two-sided printing and stapling, so you do not need
to enable them manually.

Service name
Description
IPsec/Firewall
Provides network-layer security on IPv4 and IPv6 networks. A
firewall provides simple control of IP traffic. IPsec provides
additional protection through authentication and encryption
protocols.
Kerberos
Allows you to exchange private information across an open
network by assigning a unique key, called a ticket, to each user
who logs on to the network. The ticket is then embedded in
messages to identify the sender.
SNMP v3
Employs a user-based security model for SNMP v3, which
provides user authentication and data privacy through
encryption.
Access control list (ACL)
Specifies the individual host systems, or networks of host
systems, that are allowed to access the HP Jetdirect print
server and the attached network product.
SSL/TLS
Allows you to transmit private documents via the Internet and
guarantee privacy and data integrity between the client and
server applications.
IPsec batch configuration
Provides network-layer security through the simple control of
IP traffic to and from the product. This protocol provides the
benefits of encryption and authentication and allows for
multiple configurations.

Understand paper use
This product supports a variety of paper and other print media in accordance with the guidelines in this
user guide. Paper or print media that does not meet these guidelines might cause poor print quality,
increased jams, and premature wear on the product.
For best results, use only HP-brand paper and print media designed for laser printers or multiuse. Do
not use paper or print media made for inkjet printers. Hewlett-Packard Company cannot recommend
the use of other brands of media because HP cannot control their quality.
It is possible for paper to meet all of the guidelines in this user guide and still not produce satisfactory
results. This might be the result of improper handling, unacceptable temperature and/or humidity levels,
or other variables over which Hewlett-Packard has no control.
CAUTION: Using paper or print media that does not meet Hewlett-Packard's specifications might
cause problems for the product, requiring repair. This repair is not covered by the Hewlett-Packard
warranty or service agreements.
Special paper guidelines
This product supports printing on special media. Use the following guidelines to obtain satisfactory
results. When using special paper or print media, be sure to set the type and size in the printer driver
to obtain the best results.
CAUTION: HP LaserJet products use fusers to bond dry toner particles to the paper in very precise
dots. HP laser paper is designed to withstand this extreme heat. Using inkjet paper could damage the
product.

Automatic paper sensing (auto-sense mode)
The automatic media type sensor functions when that tray is configured to the ANY TYPE or plain type
setting. It also functions when the PRINT MODE setting for that tray is set to the AUTO SENSE
MODE option.
After it has picked up paper from the tray, the product can detect overhead transparencies, paper weight,
and gloss level.
For more control, a specific type must be selected in the job or configured in a tray.
Auto-sense settings
Full sensing (Tray 1 only)
For each sheet of paper that it picks up from the tray, the product detects light paper,
plain paper, heavy paper, glossy paper, tough paper, and transparencies.
Expanded sensing
For the first few sheets of paper that it picks up from the tray, the product detects
light paper, plain paper, heavy paper, glossy paper, tough paper, and
transparencies. The product assumes the rest of the pages are of the same type.
Transparency only
The product distinguishes between transparencies and non-transparencies.
For more information about setting these options, see Print Quality menu on page 23.
Select the paper by source, type, or size
In the Microsoft Windows operating system, three settings affect how the printer driver tries to pull media
when you send a print job. Source, Type, and Size settings appear in the Page Setup, Print, or Print
Properties dialog boxes in most software programs. Unless you change these settings, the product
automatically selects a tray using the default settings.
Source
To print by source, select a specific tray in the printer driver for the product to pull from. If you select a
tray that is configured for a type or size that does not match your print job, the product prompts you to
load the tray with the type or size of paper for your print job before printing it. When you load the tray,
the product begins printing.
Type and Size
98
●
Printing by type or size causes the product to pull from the tray that is loaded with the correct type
and size of paper.
●
Selecting paper by type rather than source helps protect special paper from accidental use.
●
Using the wrong setting might result in unsatisfactory print quality. Always print by type for special
print media, such as labels or transparencies.
●
Print by type or size for envelopes, if possible.

To print by type or size, select the type or size from the Page Setup dialog box, the Print dialog
box, or the Print Properties dialog box, depending on the software program.

If you often print on a certain type or size of paper, configure a tray for that type or size. Then, when
you select that type or size as you print a job, the product automatically pulls paper from the tray
that is configured for that type or size.

Table 8-1 Manual color options
Setting description
Setting options
Halftone
●
Smooth provides better results for large, solid-filled print areas
and enhances photographs by smoothing color gradations. Select
this option when uniform and smooth area fills are the top priority.
●
Detail is useful for text and graphics that require sharp distinctions
among lines or colors, or images that contain a pattern or a high
level of detail. Select this option when sharp edges and details are
the top priority.
Neutral Grays
●
The Neutral Grays setting determines the method for
creating gray colors used in text, graphics, and
photographs.
Black Only generates neutral colors (grays and black) by using
only black toner. This guarantees neutral colors without a color
cast. This setting is best for documents and grayscale viewgraphs.
●
4-Color generates neutral colors (grays and black) by combining
all four toner colors. This method produces smoother gradients
and transitions to other colors, and it produces the darkest black.
Edge Control
●
Maximum is the most aggressive trapping setting. Adaptive
halftoning is on.
Halftone options affect the color output resolution
and clarity.
The Edge Control setting determines how edges are
rendered. Edge control has two components:
●
adaptive halftoning and trapping. Adaptive halftoning
●
increases edge sharpness. Trapping reduces the
effect of color-plane misregistration by overlapping
●
the edges of adjacent objects slightly.
ENWW
Normal sets trapping at a medium level. Adaptive halftoning is on.
Light sets trapping at a minimal level. Adaptive halftoning is on.
Off turns off both trapping and adaptive halftoning.

Use the HP EasyColor option for Windows
If you are using the HP PCL 6 printer driver for Windows, the HP EasyColor technology automatically
improves mixed-content documents that are printed from Microsoft Office programs. This technology
scans documents and automatically adjusts photographic images in .JPEG or .PNG format.
HP EasyColor technology enhances the entire image at one time, rather than dividing it into several
pieces, which results in improved color consistency, sharper details, and faster printing.
In the following example, the images on the left were created without using the HP EasyColor option.
The images on the right show the enhancements that result from using the HP EasyColor option.
The HP EasyColor option is enabled by default in the HP PCL 6 printer driver, so you do not need to
make manual color adjustments. To disable the option so you can manually adjust the color settings,
open the Color tab, and click the HP EasyColor check box to clear it.

Match colors
The process of matching product output color to your computer screen is quite complex because printers
and computer monitors use different methods of producing color. Monitors display colors by light pixels
using an RGB (red, green, blue) color process, but printers print colors using a CMYK (cyan, magenta,
yellow, and black) process.
Several factors can influence your ability to match printed colors to those on your monitor. These factors
include:
●
Paper
●
Printer colorants (inks or toners for example)
●
Printing process (inkjet, press, or laser technology for example)
●
Overhead lighting
●
Personal differences in perception of color
●
Software programs
●
Printer drivers
●
Computer operating system
●
Monitors and monitor settings
●
Video cards and drivers
●
Operating environment (humidity for example)
Keep the above factors in mind when colors on your screen do not perfectly match your printed colors.
For most users, the best method for matching colors on your screen to your product is to print sRGB
colors.
Sample book color matching
The process for matching product output to preprinted sample books and standard color references is
complex. In general, you can obtain a reasonably good match to a sample book if the inks used to create
the sample book are cyan, magenta, yellow, and black. These are usually referred to as process color
sample books.
Some sample books are created from spot colors. Spot colors are specially created colorants. Many of
these spot colors are outside of the range of the product. Most spot color sample books have companion
process sample books that provide CMYK approximations to the spot color.
Most process sample books will state which process standards were used to print the sample book. In
most cases they will be SWOP, EURO, or DIC. To get optimal color matching to the process sample
book, select the corresponding ink emulation from the product menu. If you cannot identify the process
standard, use SWOP ink emulation.
Print color samples
To use the color samples, select the color sample that is the closest match to the desired color. Use the
sample’s color value in your software program to describe the object you wish to match. Colors may
ENWW
Match colors 143
vary depending on paper type and the software program used. For more details on how to use the color
samples, go to www.hp.com/support/cljcp4025 or www.hp.com/support/cljcp4525.
Use the following procedure to print color samples at the product using the control panel:
.
1.
Press the Home button
2.
Press the down arrow
3.
Press the down arrow to highlight either the PRINT RGB SAMPLES or the PRINT CMYK
SAMPLES option, and press the OK button.
to highlight the INFORMATION menu, and press the OK button.
PANTONE® color matching
PANTONE has multiple color matching systems. PANTONE MATCHING SYSTEM® is very popular
and uses solid inks to generate a wide range of color hues and tints. See www.hp.com/go/
cljcp4025_software or www.hp.com/go/cljcp4525_software for details on how to use PANTONE Colors
with this product.
NOTE: PANTONE Colors generated might not match PANTONE-identified standards. Consult current
PANTONE Publications for accurate color.

Advanced color use
The product provides automatic color features that generate excellent color results. Carefully designed
and tested color tables provide smooth, accurate color rendition of all printable colors.
The product also provides sophisticated tools for the experienced professional.
HP ColorSphere toner
HP designs the print system (printer, print cartridges, toner, and paper) to work together to optimize print
quality, product reliability, and user productivity. Original HP print cartridges contain HP ColorSphere
toner that is specifically matched to your printer so that it will produce a wide range of brilliant colors.
This helps you create professional looking documents that contain sharp, clear text and graphics and
realistic printed photos.
HP ColorSphere toner produces print-quality consistency and intensity you can depend on across a
wide range of papers. You can produce documents that help you make the right impression. Plus,
HP professional-quality everyday and specialty papers (including a wide variety of HP media types and
weights) are designed for the way you work.
HP ImageREt 3600
HP ImageREt 3600 print technology is a system of innovative technologies developed exclusively by
HP to deliver superior print quality. The HP ImageREt system sets itself apart from the industry by
integrating technology advancements and optimizing each element of the print system. Several
categories of HP ImageREt have been developed for a variety of user needs.
The system’s foundation is composed of key color laser technologies, including image enhancements,
smart supplies, and high-resolution imaging. As the level or category of ImageREt increases, these core
technologies are refined for more advanced system usage, and additional technologies are integrated.
HP offers superior image enhancements for general office documents and marketing collateral.
Optimized for printing on HP color laser high-gloss papers, HP Image REt 3600 provides superior results
on all supported media, and under a variety of environmental conditions.
Paper selection
For the best color and image quality, select the appropriate paper type from the control panel menu or
from the printer driver.
Color options
Color options automatically provide optimal color output. These options use object tagging, which
provides optimal color and halftone settings for different objects (text, graphics, and photos) on a page.
The printer driver determines which objects appear on a page and uses halftone and color settings that
provide the best print quality for each object.
In the Windows environment, the Automatic and Manual color options are on the Color tab in the printer
driver.
Standard red-green-blue (sRGB)
Standard red-green-blue (sRGB) is a worldwide color standard that HP and Microsoft developed as a
common color language for monitors, input devices (scanners and digital cameras), and output devices
(printers and plotters). It is the default color space used for HP products, Microsoft operating systems,
ENWW
Advanced color use 145
the World Wide Web, and most office software. The sRGB standard represents the typical Windows
monitor and is the convergence standard for high-definition television.
NOTE: Factors such as the type of monitor you use and the room lighting can affect the appearance
of colors on your screen. For more information, see Match colors on page 143.
The latest versions of Adobe PhotoShop®, CorelDRAW®, Microsoft Office, and many other programs
use sRGB to communicate color. Because it is the default color space in Microsoft operating systems,
sRGB has been adopted broadly. When programs and devices use sRGB to exchange color information,
typical users experience greatly improved color matching.
The sRGB standard improves your ability to match colors between the product, the computer monitor,
and other input devices automatically, and eliminates the need to become a color expert.

Print when a cartridge reaches estimated end of life
When a print cartridge reaches the end of its estimated useful life, the control panel displays a <COLOR>
CARTRIDGE VERY LOW message. You do not need to replace the supply at this time unless print
quality is no longer acceptable. When the supply has reached this condition, the HP premium protection
warranty for that supply has ended. The product does not supply more prompts after this message
appears.
You can configure the product to stop when the <COLOR> CARTRIDGE VERY LOW message displays.
The print cartridge might still be able to produce acceptable print quality. When the product stops, you
can continue printing either by replacing the supply or by using the AT VERY LOW setting in the
MANAGE SUPPLIES menu to reconfigure the product to continue printing. For more information, see
Manage supplies menu on page 16.
The cartridge-life remaining is an approximation only, and it varies depending on the types of documents
you print and other factors.

Cartridge memory tag
The HP print cartridges used with this product contain a memory tag that assists in product operation.
In addition, this memory tag collects a limited set of information about product usage, which might include
the following information:
●
The date when the print cartridge was first installed
●
The date when the print cartridge was last used
●
The number of pages printed using the print cartridge
●
The page coverage
●
The printing modes used
●
Any printing errors that might have occurred
●
The product model
This information helps HP design future products to meet customers' printing needs.
The data collected from the print cartridge memory tag does not contain information that can be used
to identify a customer or the specific product.
HP collects a sampling of the memory tags from print cartridges that are returned to HP's free return
and recycling program (HP Planet Partners: www.hp.com/recycle). The memory tags from this sampling
are read and studied to improve future HP products. HP partners who assist in recycling this print
cartridge might also have access to this data.
Any third-party company that possesses the print cartridge might have access to the anonymous
information on the memory tag. If you prefer to not allow access to this information, you can render the
tag inoperable. However, after you render the memory tag inoperable, the memory tag cannot be used
in an HP product.

until you turn the product off.
Use the following guidelines if you use the page description language (PDL) ability to mark resources
as permanent. For technical details, see an appropriate PDL reference for PCL or PS.
●
Mark resources as permanent only when it is absolutely necessary that they remain in memory
while the product is turned on.
●
Send permanent resources to the product only at the beginning of a print job and not while the
product is printing.
NOTE: Overusing permanent resources or downloading them while the product is printing might affect
product performance or the ability to print complex pages.

The speed of the computer you are using
●
The USB connection
●
The printer I/O configuration
●
The amount of memory installed in the product
●
The network operating system and configuration (if applicable)
●
The printer driver that you are using

Control-panel message types
Four types of control-panel messages can indicate the status of or problems with the product.
Message type
Description
Status messages
Status messages reflect the current state of the product. They inform you of normal product operation
and require no interaction to clear them. They change as the state of the product changes. Whenever
the product is ready, not busy, and has no pending warning messages, the status message Ready
appears if the product is online.
Warning messages
Warning messages inform you of data and print errors. These messages typically alternate with the
Ready or status messages and remain until OK is pressed. Some warning messages are clearable.
If CLEARABLE WARNINGS is set to JOB on the product CONFIGURE DEVICE menu, the next print
job clears these messages.
Error messages
Error messages communicate that some action must be performed, such as adding paper or clearing
a jam.
Some error messages are auto-continuable. If AUTO-CONTINUE is set on the menus, the product
will continue normal operation after an auto-continuable error message appears for 10 seconds.
NOTE: Pressing any button during the 10-second auto-continuable error message overrides the
auto-continue feature, and the button function takes precedence. For example, pressing the stop
pauses printing and offers the option to cancel the print job.

Critical-error messages
Critical error messages inform you of a product failure. Some of these messages can be cleared by

●
Use paper that meets HP specifications. See Paper and print media on page 79.
●
Clean the product as necessary. See Clean the paper path on page 176.
Example print quality problems
Some print quality problems arise from low or very low cartridges or other supplies. The solution is to
replace the low or very low supplies.
Some print quality problems arise from use of inappropriate paper.
●
Use paper that meets HP paper specifications.
●
The surface of the paper is too rough. Use paper that meets HP paper specifications.
●
The printer driver setting or paper tray setting might be incorrect. Be sure that you have configured
the paper tray at the product control panel and have also selected the correct driver setting for the
paper that you are using.
●
The print mode might be set incorrectly, or the paper might not meet recommended specifications.
●
The transparencies you are using are not designed for proper toner adhesion. Use only
transparencies designed for HP Color LaserJet products.
●
The moisture content of the paper is uneven, too high, or too low. Use paper from a different source
or from an unopened ream of paper.
●
Some areas of the paper reject toner. Use paper from a different source or from an unopened ream
of paper.
●
The letterhead you are using is printed on rough paper. Use a smoother, xerographic paper. If this
solves your problem, consult with the printer of your letterhead to verify that the paper used meets
the specifications for this product.
●
Several optimize print modes can be used to address print quality issues. See Print Quality menu

provinces do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above
limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.

LAWFULLY PERMITTED, DO NOT EXCLUDE, RESTRICT OR MODIFY AND ARE IN ADDITION TO
THE MANDATORY STATUTORY RIGHTS APPLICABLE TO THE SALE OF THIS PRODUCT TO YOU.

Customer self-repair warranty service
HP products are designed with many Customer Self Repair (CSR) parts to minimize repair time and
allow for greater flexibility in performing defective parts replacement. If during the diagnosis period, HP
identifies that the repair can be accomplished by the use of a CSR part, HP will ship that part directly to
you for replacement. There are two categories of CSR parts: 1) Parts for which customer self repair is
mandatory. If you request HP to replace these parts, you will be charged for the travel and labor costs
of this service. 2) Parts for which customer self repair is optional. These parts are also designed for
Customer Self Repair. If, however, you require that HP replace them for you, this may be done at no
additional charge under the type of warranty service designated for your product.
Based on availability and where geography permits, CSR parts will be shipped for next business day
delivery. Same-day or four-hour delivery may be offered at an additional charge where geography
permits. If assistance is required, you can call the HP Technical Support Center and a technician will
help you over the phone. HP specifies in the materials shipped with a replacement CSR part whether
a defective part must be returned to HP. In cases where it is required to return the defective part to HP,
you must ship the defective part back to HP within a defined period of time, normally five (5) business
days. The defective part must be returned with the associated documentation in the provided shipping
material. Failure to return the defective part may result in HP billing you for the replacement. With a
customer self repair, HP will pay all shipping and part return costs and determine the courier/carrier to
be used.

It’s easy to return and recycle your HP LaserJet print cartridges after use—free of charge—with
HP Planet Partners. Multilingual program information and instructions are included in every new
HP LaserJet print cartridge and supplies package. You help reduce the toll on the environment further
when you return multiple cartridges together rather than separately.
HP is committed to providing inventive, high-quality products and services that are environmentally
sound, from product design and manufacturing to distribution, customer use and recycling. When you
participate in the HP Planet Partners program, we ensure your HP LaserJet print cartridges are recycled
properly, processing them to recover plastics and metals for new products and diverting millions of tons
of waste from landfills. Since this cartridge is being recycled and used in new materials, it will not be

Safety statements
Laser safety
The Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has
implemented regulations for laser products manufactured since August 1, 1976. Compliance is
mandatory for products marketed in the United States. The device is certified as a “Class 1” laser product
under the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) Radiation Performance Standard
according to the Radiation Control for Health and Safety Act of 1968. Since radiation emitted inside the
device is completely confined within protective housings and external covers, the laser beam cannot
escape during any phase of normal user operation.
WARNING! Using controls, making adjustments, or performing procedures other than those specified
in this user guide may result in exposure to hazardous radiation.
