Turn the printer on.
Lift the lid that covers the print-head assembly.
The print-head should slide to a position from where you can "unlock" an ink-cartridge from the carrier, and remove the cartridge(s).
Usually you can print a configuration page and it will tell you the IP address that is assigned to the printer. You should be able to use the small menu screen on the printer to navigate to, and print a configuration page, or use it to navigate to the network settings to view and/or edit the current configuration. If all else fails, sometimes you can run Angry IP Scanner on a computer that is on the same network as the printer and see if any of the hosts come up with a name that matches the printer, then you will see the address of that host.
To have an IP address for the printer you must either have a HP4200n or install a Jetdirect card into the printer. The Jetdirect or "N" version of the printer with the built in Jetdirect holds the network IP address. Subnet Mask, Gateway Derfault and handles the networking functions. If you have a 4200n or Jetdirect installed it will print out on the configuration page.
The standard HP 4200 doesn't have the networking capability without adding the card. In the event that you have a card installed and its not recognizing the card on the configutation page it may be bad. The HP 615n cards are known to have burn out issues. If you have to install a card to upgrade your printer, I recommend a HP 620n or better to get around the known bad issues with the 615n cards.
