Though I didn't try it on the printer I installed for my sister, the printer does have an angled in line paper path similar to that of Epson units which i use regularly. I don't think that it would be a problem for it.

You do not use toner with this product. You use printer ink cartridges (big difference in price!!).

You do receive 2 ink cartridges with the printer a black ink, and a tri-color ink. This is all you need to print or copy. Additional ink runs between $15-$20.

There is a black & white and a color ink cartridge included in the box with the printer (#61). You can get refills at Target, Staples, etc. I think for about $21 each, but I would shop around. I haven't had to replenish it yet but I've only used it for a few days.

answer 3
Ink Cartridges are included (HP 61 Black, HP 61 Tri-color cartridges). A print cartridge has an expected life of 24 months. This is divided between shelf life and installed life. A print cartridge can be installed in a printer any time during its 18 month shelf life. If it is installed after 18 months accumulated pigments, congealing, and/or hardening ink may adversely affect product performance.
Replacement pricing may vary according to place of purchase and promotions available at time of replacement.

You can connect it with the USB cable. To go wireless, you will need a router. If you have a wireless modem, it may contain the router function as well. If so, you will not need anything else to connect wirelessly.

If your laptop is set up with wifi, all you should need to do is plug in an ethernet cable to both machines (the printer and the laptop) long enough for them to learn each other's language. They should work fine with each other.

You can use just about any wireless router that is designed to create a wireless home network. I like the Linksys E1200 Wireless-N Router. This model supports fast wireless N, is very affordable, has a very sleek and attractive appearance, and has great reviews. You can view more information at the following link:

How do you connect a second computer to a wireless printer throw wifi and not network?

I just bought the HP Deskjet 3050 Wireless All-In-One Printer and I successfully connected it wireless to my macbook as the main computer. I am having trouble connecting it to my mom's computer witch is Windows XP. I would love to have it connected to my mom's computer wireless as she has a desktop with it not being WiFi compatible throw an Ethernet cable from my wireless router which my printer is wireless to and not a network setup where all computers are connected together.

Just put the disk that came with the printer in your mom's computer and follow the instruction's when it comes to the connect part. It will ask if you are going wirerless and you push the yes button.It will then prompt you to enter the password for your wirerless router.I hope this helped.

You might need to connect it once via USB for it to set up with the PC, then disconnect and all should be well.

You may have to network it, but you should be able to connect it with an Ethernet cable OR, just buy a cheap ethernet card to plug into a USB port on the desktop. This will allow it to connect to the internet, as well as the printer.

Name lables ? as in ebay custers address an all that ?

I'm sure it will print that on normal paper and then you can just apply tape over the name

but if you go to office depot and get those lables that are blank for a few bucks that are pre-cut I think those wont work as good

if you want to look like a pro you can get a added on lable printer or get some sofat ware that can be printed from any printer with the softwares selected paper type shown on your software box

checkout the labels at office depot

I've used generic labels and they work just fine. Just make sure that when you are creating them in Word or Works that you are selecting the correct label. To find this look on the package the labels came in, it will have a number such as Avery 8160 and be sure to select that one in your label options.

I don't see how it would interfere with other wireless printers since it connects to your own, personal wireless router. During set-up, it verifies your router, so there's really no way of messing the set-up process.

Wireless computers and printers hook up through security keys which you control when setting up. That way this type of problem is avoided, also this type of security has a password that you set so someone can't use your printer without the password.
