How Can I Install New HP Officejet Pro 9015 Series Printer?

The first-time setup- installation for HP Officejet Pro 9015 series printers is covered here. This document applies to the HP Officejet Pro 9010, 9015, 9018, 9020, and 9025 all-in-one printer family.


Step-1 Remove the packaging materials from your printer and unbox it.

To begin, open the printer’s box. Then take out the user guide and the ink cartridges that come with it. Remove the printer device from the packaging box now. Next, Remove the foam from both sides of the printer and set aside the power wire. Now take the printer out of the plastic bag. Remove all of the taps from the front of the printer as well as the control panel window. Now Close the scanner lid after removing the foam-based layer by lifting the cover.


Step-2 Make the necessary cable connections and preferences.

To begin, connect one end of the power line to the printer’s back and the other end to a wall outlet. Your printer will now start (turn ON) on its own. Then, from the printer control panel, pick your desired language and confirm. After that, you must choose your nation and then confirm your selection.


Step-3 Ink cartridges are installed.

To begin, open your printer’s front door and lift the cartridge access door. Remove the plastic insert when the carriage is idle or quiet. Now remove the cartridges from the packaging and unroll them. Next, pull the tab from the plastic tab on the black cartridge to reveal the vent slot. Hold the cartridge by its sides and twist the cap to remove it; you may need to use a lot of force. To avoid clogs, ink failure, and improper electrical connections, do not touch the ink port or metal contacts. Match the letter and colour of the cartridge to the carriage’s matching slot. After that, slip the cartridge into the slot while holding it by its sides.


Step-4 Place a stack of papers in the input tray.

The primary paper tray must first be slid out. Remove the cardboard constraint and tape after that. Place the paper guidelines at the top of the stack. After then, fill the stack with regular A4 paper. Make sure the paper stack is pushed all the way into the tray. Now adjust the paper guides so that they are in contact with the stack of papers. If a notice appears on the control panel screen, slide in the paper tray and then tap OK.


Step-5 An alignment page should be printed and scanned.

Firstly, remove the output tray by sliding it out. An alignment page will now print on its own. Before you start printing papers, make sure you scan the alignment page. So, open the scanner lid and set the paper on the scanner glass, print side down. For optimal positioning, please refer to the scan instructions. Now close the scanner lid and then press the Scan button. When the message “Alignment Successful” shows on the screen, press OK to finish the hardware setup or installation.
