Use the Resolution Enhancement technology (REt) setting to produce print with smooth angles, curves, and edges.
REt does not affect print quality if the print resolution is set to FastRes 1200 or ProRes 1200. All other print resolutions benefit from REt.
It is best to change the REt setting in the program or print driver. (Program and printer-driver settings override control-panel settings.)
The default setting is MEDIUM.
ECONOMODE
ON
OFF
EconoMode is a feature that allows the product to use less toner per page. Selecting this option will extend the life of the toner supply and may reduce cost per page. However, it will also reduce print quality. The printed page is lighter, but it is adequate for printing drafts or proofs.
HP does not recommend full-time use of EconoMode. If EconoMode is used full-time, the toner supply might outlast the mechanical parts in the print cartridge. If print quality begins to degrade under these circumstances, you will need to install a new print cartridge, even if there is toner supply remaining in the cartridge.
It is best to turn EconoMode on or off in the program or printer driver. (Program and printer-driver settings override control-panel settings.)
The default setting is OFF.

DIAGNOSTICS
EMBEDDED TESTS
This menu provides tests to help diagnose network hardware or TCP/IP network connection problems.
Embedded tests help to identify whether a network fault is internal or external to the product. Use an embedded test to check hardware and communication paths on the print server. After you select and enable a test and set the execution time, you must select EXECUTE to initiate the test.
Depending on the execution time, a selected test runs continuously until either the product is turned off, or an error occurs and a diagnostic page is printed.
LAN HW TEST
Running this embedded test will erase your TCP/IP configuration.
This test performs an internal loopback test. An internal loopback test will send and receive packets only on the internal network hardware. There are no external transmissions on your network.
Select YES to choose this test, or NO to not choose it.
HTTP TEST
This test checks operation of HTTP by retrieving predefined pages from the product, and tests the embedded Web server.
Select YES to choose this test, or NO to not choose it.
SNMP TEST
This test checks operation of SNMP communications by accessing predefined SNMP objects on the product.
Select YES to choose this test, or NO to not choose it.
DATA PATH TEST
This test helps to identify data path and corruption problems on an HP postscript level 3 emulation product. It sends a predefined PS file to the product, However, the test is paperless, so the file does not print.
Select YES to choose this test, or NO to not choose it.
SELECT ALL TESTS
Select this item to run all the embedded tests. Select YES to run all tests, or select NO to not run all tests.
EXECUTION TIME [H]
Use this item to specify the length of time (in hours) that an embedded test will be run. You can select a value from 1 to 60 hours. If you select zero (0), the test runs indefinitely until an error occurs or the product is turned off.
Data gathered from the HTTP, SNMP, and Data Path tests is printed after the tests have completed.
EXECUTE
NO*: Do not initiate the selected tests.
YES: Initiate the selected tests.
PING TEST
This test is used to check network communications. This test sends link-level packets to a remote network host, then waits for an appropriate response.
DEST TYPE
Specify whether the target device is an IPv4 or IPv6 node.
DEST IPV4
Type the IPv4 address.
DEST IPV6
Type the IPv6 address.
PACKET SIZE
Specify the size of each packet, in bytes, to be sent to the remote host. The minimum is 64 (default) and the maximum is 2048.
TIMEOUT
Specify the length of time, in seconds, to wait for a response from the remote host. The default is 1 and the maximum is 100.
COUNT
Specify the number of ping test packets to send for this test. Select a value from 1 to 100. To configure the test to run continuously, select 0.
PRINT RESULTS
If the ping test was not set for continuous operation, you can choose to print the test results. Select YES to print results. If you select NO (default), results are not printed.
EXECUTE
Specify whether to initiate the ping test. Select YES to initiate the test, or NO to not run the test.
PING RESULTS
Use this item to view the ping test status and results using the control panel display.
PACKETS SENT
Shows the number of packets (0 - 65535) sent to the remote host since the most recent test was initiated or completed.
PACKETS RECEIVED
Shows the number of packets (0 - 65535) received from the remote host since the most recent test was initiated or completed.
PERCENT LOST
Shows the percent of ping test packets that were sent with no response from the remote host since the most recent test was initiated or completed.
RTT MIN
Shows the minimum detected roundtrip- time (RTT), from 0 to 4096 milliseconds, for packet transmission and response.
RTT MAX
Shows the maximum detected roundtrip- time (RTT), from 0 to 4096 milliseconds, for packet transmission and response.
RTT AVERAGE
Shows the average round-trip-time (RTT), from 0 to 4096 milliseconds, for packet transmission and response.
PING IN PROGRESS
Shows whether a ping test is in progress. YES indicates a test in progress, and NO indicates that a test completed or was not run.
REFRESH
When viewing the ping test results, this item updates the ping test data with current results. Select YES to update the data, or NO to maintain the existing data. However, a refresh automatically occurs when the menu times out or you manually return to the main menu.
LINK SPEED
The link speed and communication mode of the print server must match the network. The available settings depend on the product and installed print server. Select one of the following link configuration settings:
If you change the link setting, network communications with the print server and network device might be lost.
AUTO*: The print server uses auto-negotiation to configure itself with the highest link speed and communication mode allowed. If auto-negotiation fails, either 100TX HALF or 10TX HALF is set depending on the detected link speed of the hub/switch port. (A 1000T half-duplex selection is not supported.)
10T HALF: 10 Mbps, half-duplex operation.
10T FULL: 10 Mbps, full-duplex operation.
100TX HALF: 100 Mbps, half-duplex operation.
100TX FULL: 100 Mbps, full-duplex operation.
100TX AUTO: Limits auto-negotiation to a maximum link speed of 100 Mbps.
1000TX FULL: 1000 Mbps, full-duplex operation.
PRINT PROTOCOLS
Use this item to print a page that lists the configuration of the following protocols: IPX/SPX, Novell NetWare, AppleTalk, DLC/LLC.

Item
Values
Explanation
RESTORE FACTORY SETTINGS
There is no value to select.
Performs a simple reset and restores most of the factory (default) and network settings. This item also clears the input buffer for the active I/O.
Restoring factory settings during a print job cancels the print job.
SLEEP MODE
ON
OFF
Turns Sleep mode on or off. Using Sleep mode offers the following advantages:
  • Minimizes the amount of power that the product consumes when it is idle.

  • Reduces wear on electronic components in the product (turns off the display backlight, but the display is still readable).

The product automatically comes out of Sleep mode when you send a print job, press a control-panel button, open a tray, or open the top cover.
You can set how long the product remains idle before it enters Sleep mode.
The default setting is ON.
