First time Printer Setup
To setup your HP Deskjet 2130 Printer on a USB connection, gather a USB cable that is shorter than 3m in length. Connect the USB directly to the USB port on the computer and not through a hub. Connecting it using a hub will limit the power supply that the printer can receive. Do not connect the USB cable to the computer until prompted during the installation. The steps to setup the printer for the first time are listed below.
- Step 1: Get the printer out of the box and remove all the plastic tape around the printer. Lower the output tray and open the cartridge access door to open it.

- Step 5: Remove the ink cartridge from its package and be careful to not touch anywhere other than the black part of the cartridge. Remove the plastic tape around it.
- Step 6: With the nozzles facing the printer, insert the cartridge into its respective slot. Right slot for the black cartridge and left one for the tri-color cartridge.
