HP Photosmart 7150 Printer - Using the Printer Toolbox


The HP Photosmart Printer Toolbox can be used to calibrate and clean the printer and ink cartridges, print a test page, and view the onscreen User’s Guide. Access the HP Toolbox from the printer Properties, the Windows Start menu, or the HP Photosmart printer icon located on the Taskbar.

Use the HP Toolbox to perform the following tasks

  • Calibrate the printer to align the print cartridges.

  • Clean the print cartridges when lines and dots are missing from your printout.

  • Print a test page to check for clarity after cleaning or to verify that the printer can receive data and print from the computer correctly.

  • Print a diagnostic page to show how the print cartridge nozzles are working.

    NOTE: It is only necessary to print a diagnostic page if instructed to do so by HP Services and Support.
  • Check the ink levels of the print cartridges.
