The blue collar is when you are printing on the smaller CD/DVD's and you snap it into place. Most people just use the regular size cds so you won't need the collar.

You are not the first to be less than impressed with hp's directions on this function. That have recently released a video clip that can be very helpful.

How many miles is in 16821 steps


That is an arbitrary question without an answer unless you provide some input as to what is the "accepted" length of a "step". Obviously, as people are of varying heights and thus varying leg length, the length of a step can vary widely. If you assume a step as the 30" pace that the US military associates with the march step, then you can calculate a distance.

16821 steps @ 30 inches per step = 504630 inches.

504630 inches divided by 12 = 42052.5 feet

Since the 5280 feet in one mile, then:

42052.5 feet divided by 5280 = 7.9644886363636... miles.

You could print it out yourself. Set the printer to print 2 pages per sheet to save paper. Cut them apart and staple them or use a hole punch and put them into a binder.

HI

FIRST YOU HAVE TO MAKE SURE YOU HAVE PURCHASED THE CORRECT WHIT PRINTABLE DISKS.
YOUR PRINTER WOULD HAVE CAME WITH THE NECESSARY SFTWARE CALLED CD PRINT.
OPEN THE PROGRAM AND FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS TO CREATE THE IMMAGE ON THE CD/DVD.
YOU WILL BE WORKING WITH AN IMAGE OF A BLANK WHITE DISK, AND WHAT EVER YOU DO THERE WILL BE PRINTED ON YOUR REAL DISK.
YOUR CANNON PRINTER WILL HAVE AN OPENING IN FRONT WHERE YOU WILL HAVE TO INSERT THE DISK WITH THE PROVIDED TRAY ( A BLACK RECTANGLE WHICH THE CD/DVD WILL FIT ON).
FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS ON THE PC AND YOU CANNOT GO WRONG

Hp 5280 all-in-one does not print directly on cd


We had the same problem. We had to use HP's printing software. It was called HP Photosmart Essentials. We are using version 3.5. When we went to HP's website to download Photosmart Essentials, it only had version 2.5 for our printer. Our printer, the 5280, is now discontinued so we had to enter another all-in-one printer model that was similar to ours that allowed us to download the 3.5 version. Anyway, best of luck. P.S. - HP isn't what it used to be. I'm considering switching to maybe canon or something. Anyway, peace out.
