hp ENVY 4520 All-in-One Series - Cartridge warranty information

For a copy of the HP Limited Warranty Statement for the printer, see the printed documentation that came with the product.

Anonymous usage information storage

The HP cartridges used with this printer contain a memory chip that assists in the operation of the printer. In addition, this memory chip stores a limited set of anonymous information about the usage of the printer, which might include the following: the number of pages printed using the cartridge, the page coverage, frequency of printing, and the printing modes used.

This information helps HP design future printers to meet our customers’ printing needs. The data collected from the cartridge memory chip does not contain information that can be used to identify a customer or user of the cartridge or their printer.

HP collects a sampling of the memory chips from cartridges returned to HP’s free return and recycling program (HP Planet Partners: www.hp.com/recycle ). The memory chips from this sampling are read and studied in order to improve future HP printers. HP partners who assist in recycling this cartridge might have access to this data, as well.

Any third party possessing the cartridge might have access to the anonymous information on the memory chip. If you prefer to not allow access to this information, you can render the chip inoperable. However, after you render the memory chip inoperable, the cartridge cannot be used in an HP printer.

If you are concerned about providing this anonymous information, you can make this information inaccessible by turning off the memory chip’s ability to collect the printer’s usage information.

To disable the usage information function

  1. From the printer control panel, touch Setup .
  2. Touch Preferences .
  3. Flick to the end of the option list and switch off the Send Usage Info option.
    NOTE: You can continue to use the cartridge in the HP printer if you turn off the memory chip’s ability to collect the printer’s usage information.

Tips for working with cartridges

Use the following tips to work with cartridges:

  • To protect the cartridges from drying out, always turn the printer off using the On button, and wait until the On button light goes out.
  • Do not open or untape cartridges until you are ready to install them. Leaving tape on the cartridges reduces ink evaporation.
  • Insert the cartridges into the correct slots. Match the color and icon of each cartridge to the color and icon for each slot. Make sure the cartridges snap into place.
  • Alignment is automatic after new cartridge installation. Alignment can also help later, in cases of blurred or jagged lines. See Fix print quality issues on page 53 for more information.
  • When the Estimated Ink Levels screen shows one or both cartridges in a low state, consider getting replacement cartridges to avoid possible printing delays. You do not need to replace the cartridges until print quality becomes unacceptable. See Replace the cartridges on page 31 for more information.
  • If you remove a cartridge from the printer for any reason, try to replace it again as soon as possible. Outside of the printer, if unprotected, cartridges begin to dry out.

Fix print quality issues

Step-by-step instructions for resolving most print quality issues — Troubleshoot print quality issues online.

Read general instructions in the Help for resolving print quality issues

NOTE: To avoid print quality problems, always turn the printer off using the On button, and wait until the On button light goes out before you pull the plug or turn off a power strip. This allows the printer to move the cartridges to a capped position, where they are protected from drying out.

To improve print quality

  1. Make sure you are using original HP ink cartridges.
  2. Check the printer software to make sure you have selected the appropriate paper type from the Media drop-down list and print quality from the Quality Settings drop-down list.
    • In the printer software, click Print & Scan and then click Set Preferences to access the print properties.
  3. Check the estimated ink levels to determine if the cartridges are low on ink. For more information, see Check the estimated ink levels on page 30. If the ink cartridges are low on ink consider replacing them.
  4. Check the paper type.
    For best print quality, use high quality HP paper, or papers that adhere to the ColorLok® standard. For more information, see Paper basics on page 5.
    Always make sure the paper you are printing on is flat. For best results when printing images, use HP Advanced Photo Paper.
    Store specialty paper in its original packaging inside a resealable plastic bag on a flat surface in a cool, dry place. When you are ready to print, remove only the paper you plan to use immediately. When you have finished printing, return any unused photo paper to the plastic bag. This prevents the photo paper from curling.
  5. Align the cartridges.
    To align the cartridges from the printer software
    NOTE: Aligning the cartridges ensures the high-quality output. The HP All-in-One prompts you to align the cartridges every time you install a new cartridge. If you remove and reinstall the same ink cartridge, the HP All-in-One will not prompt you to align the ink cartridges. The HP All-in-One remembers the alignment values for that ink cartridge, so you do not need to realign the ink cartridges.

To improve print quality (OS X)

  1. Make sure you are using original HP cartridges.
  2. Make sure you have selected the appropriate paper type and print quality in the Print dialog.
  3. Check the estimated ink levels to determine if the cartridges are low on ink. Consider replacing the print cartridges if they are low on ink.
  4. Check the paper type.
    For best print quality, use high quality HP paper, or papers that adhere to the ColorLok® standard. For more information, see Paper basics on page 5.
    Always make sure the paper you are printing on is flat. For best results when printing images, use HP Advanced Photo Paper.
    Store specialty paper in its original packaging inside a resealable plastic bag on a flat surface in a cool, dry place. When you are ready to print, remove only the paper you plan to use immediately. When you have finished printing, return any unused photo paper to the plastic bag. This prevents the photo paper from curling.
  5. Align the printer cartridges.
    To align print cartridges from the software
    • a. Load Letter or A4 plain, white paper in the paper tray.
    • b. Open HP Utility.
      NOTE: HP Utility is located in the Hewlett-Packard folder in the Applications folder at the top level of the hard disk.
    • c. Select the HP ENVY 4520 series from the list of devices at the left of the window.
    • d. Click Align.
    • e. Click Align and follow the on-screen instructions.
    • f. Click All Settings to return to the Information and Support pane.
  6. Print a test page.
    To print a test page
    • a. Load Letter or A4 plain, white paper in the paper tray.
    • b. Open HP Utility.
      NOTE: HP Utility is located in the Hewlett-Packard folder in the Applications folder at the top level of the hard disk.
    • c. Select the HP ENVY 4520 series from the list of devices at the left of the window.
    • d. Click Test Page.
    • e. Click the Print Test Page button, and follow the on-screen instructions.
      Check the test page for jagged lines in the text or streaks in the text and colored boxes. If you are seeing jagged lines, or streaks, or no ink in portions of the boxes, then automatically clean the cartridges.
  7. If the diagnostic page shows steaks or missing portions of the text or colored boxes, clean the print cartridges automatically.
    To automatically clean the print head
    • a. Load Letter or A4 plain, white paper in the paper tray.

    • d. Click Clean Printheads.
    • e. Click Clean, and follow the on-screen instructions.
      CAUTION: Clean the print head only when necessary. Unnecessary cleaning wastes ink and shortens the life of the print head.
      NOTE: If print quality still seems poor after you complete cleaning, try aligning the printer. If print quality problems persist after cleaning and aligning, contact HP support.
    • f. Click All Settings to return to the Information and Support pane.
Fix ink smears on printouts

If a printout shows smears of ink, for subsequent prints, try using the Clean Ink Smear function from the printer display. This process takes several minutes to complete. Full-size plain paper needs to be loaded and will be moved back and forth during the cleaning. Mechanical noises are normal at this time.

  1. Load Letter or A4 unused plain white paper into the input tray.
  2. From the printer control panel display, touch Tools .
  3. Touch Clean Page Smears, and then follow the on-screen instructions.
