You can use the program that comes with the printer. Its called HP Solution Center. There you can view your printers status, etc.. In addition you can choose to copy, scan or print files.

I have a HP Photosmart B209 Printer and no matter wht I do the pictures come out very orange. They look great on my camera & on the computer screen but the pictures are just awful. I can't find any...


I think the problem is not settings, but cyan colour from ink cartridge( no cyan ink). Maybe you must use HP SureSupply to determine the cartridge compatibility and which cartridges are best for certain printing tasks. Did you install the right drivers for this printer?

Does the HP Photosmart B209 print on CD's?


Hello,

No it does not. The best you can do is to print CD labels, but you would need a program with software to handle them.

Thanks for using Fixya.

PS. The manual is a large file (13MB) so be patient if you download it..

I just brought a new HP Photosmart B209 and as long as it is hooked up to the usb port it is fine but as soon as i disconnect it from the usb it says it is offline. how can i get it to stay connected to...


I suggest that you turn off the printer power, then unhook from usb. That disconnect from usb can sometimes scramble the printer driver and control firmware, and require a reinstallation. Also, plug the printer directly into a wall socket, especially for scanning.

Scanning pictures


I'm working on a Mac and bought my printer in Japan, but when you do the scan, the machine does scan the whole piece.  You need to drag the dotted lines to the proper edges of the scan.  That will give you a full scan.
