Media that may damage the printer
In rare circumstances media can damage the printer. The following media must be avoided to
prevent possible damage:
Do not use media with staples attached.
Do not use transparencies designed for inkjet printers or other low temperature printers. Use
only transparencies that are specified for use with HP LaserJet printers.
Do not use photo paper intended for inkjet printers.
Do not use paper that is embossed or coated and is not designed for the temperatures of the
printer’s image fuser. Select media that can tolerate temperatures of 200° C (392° F) for
0.1 second. HP produces a selection of media that is designed for the HP LaserJet 1010
Do not use letterhead paper with low temperature dyes or thermography. Preprinted forms or
letterhead must use inks that can tolerate temperatures of 200° C (392° F) for 0.1 second.
Do not use any media that produces hazardous emissions, or that melts, offsets, or discolors
when exposed to 200° C (392° F) for 0.1 second.
