Instructions

  1. Install the printer

    • 1

      Use the included USB cable to plug the printer into your computer and turn it on.

    • 2

      Insert the included drivers CD into your computer's CD drive and follow the onscreen instructions to install the printer software and set up your new printer.

    • 3

      Open up a document you want to print on your computer and leave it open while you complete the next section.

    Prep the printer

    • 4

      Open the lid on top of the computer to make sure the included ink is in place. Since this is a black and white printer, there may only be one cartridge. If the ink is in place, there will be a little green square above the cartridge. If the square is red, push the ink down until you hear a "click" and the green square appears. Close the lid and wait for the print head to reset.

    • 5

      Open the paper tray at the bottom of the printer by pulling it straight out towards you. Put in printer paper in a neat stack and close the paper tray.

    • 6

      Check the LCD screen for any messages or a confirmation from your computer, and press the green "OK" button.

    Print

    • 7

      Return to the document on your computer and click on File, then Print. Quick keys to print on Windows are Control+P, and on Mac Apple+P.

    • 8

      Click on the arrow to the right of the printer name and select the model of your new printer when the print options menu pops up.

    • 9

      Click "OK" or "Print" depending on the program, and your newly set up printer will print the document. For the first document, you may need to hit "OK" on the printer again. Also, sometimes the ink takes one or two pages to fully flow, so if the first page is spotty, try another.
