  • PrintPrint

Introduction

This document contains information about connecting to a Bluetooth-enabled device. You can print photos from devices, such as camera phones and Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs), that use an HP bt300 or HP bt400 series Bluetooth(R) Wireless Printer Adapter (HP Bluetooth adapter). Depending on the configuration of your computer, there are two procedures for connecting a Bluetooth device. Follow the procedure that is appropriate for you.
  • Connect the device using a Windows computer that has Microsoft XP, with Service Pack 2 installed
  • Connect the device using an HP computer with Bluetooth built in, or a computer that already has an HP Bluetooth adapter installed
This document applies to the following products:
  • 3207
  • 3210, 3210a, 3210v, 3210xi, 3213, 3214
  • 3308
  • 3310, 3310v, 3310x, 3313, 3313, 3314

Connect the device using a Windows computer that has Microsoft XP, with Service Pack 2 installed

  1. Verify that the HP All-in-One software is installed on the computer.
    NOTE:The purpose of installing the software is to make sure the print driver is available for the Bluetooth connection. Therefore, if you have already installed the software, you do not need to reinstall it. If you want both a USB and a Bluetooth connection to your HP All-in-One, install the USB connection first. However, if you do not want a USB connection, select Directly to the computer on the Connection Type screen. Also, on the Connect Your Device Now screen, select the check box next to If you are unable to connect your device now...at the bottom of the screen.
  2. Attach an HP Bluetooth adapter to the front USB port.
  3. If you are using an external Bluetooth adapter for your computer, make sure your computer is started and then attach the Bluetooth adapter to a USB port on the computer. If you have Windows XP with Service Pack 2 installed, the Bluetooth drivers are installed automatically. If you are prompted to select a Bluetooth profile, select HCRP. If your computer has Bluetooth built in, just make sure the computer is started.
  4. On the Windows taskbar, click Start, and then click Printers and Faxes.
  5. Double-click the Add Printer icon.
  6. Click Next, and then select A Bluetooth Printer.
  7. Follow the onscreen instructions to finish the installation.
  8. Print as you would to any printer.
