Overview: The bt300 Bluetooth
Wireless printer adapter allows you to print on select HP printers without using
a cable. With the bt300, you can print from compatible camera phones, PDAs,
digital cameras, or computers.
Bluetooth Technology: Bluetooth
technology is a reliable, wireless link that allows you to easily connect mobile
phones, notebook and desktop PCs, handheld devices, and printers over short
distances (generally up to 30 meters or 100 feet). You can print images and messages, transfer
files, and exchange contacts and calendar items.
Compatible HP Printers: The
adapter is compatible with HP Photosmart 325, 375 (including 375 models with
battery), 8150 and 8450 photo printers.
Installation: The bt300
Bluetooth Wireless printer adapter plugs directly into the printer's USB camera
port (sometimes called the Pictbridge port) on the front panel of the printer.
LED Status Indicator: The
adapter features a small LED on the top which indicates the adapter's status:
- Blinking: (default state)
the bt300 is installed properly and has power
- Rapid Blinking: a sending
device is "discovering" the bt300
- On Steady: the bt300 is
Accessibility Modes: The
printer adapter has two available Accessibility modes for the printer on which
the device is installed. Using the printer's instructions, you can set the mode
to one of the following:
- Visible to All: any
Bluetooth device within range can "discover" and use the printer
- Not Visible: only sending
devices that have stored the printer's Bluetooth device address can discover
and use the printer
Security Levels: The connected
printer can have a high or low security level. When set to low, the printer does
not require a Passkey code, and any Bluetooth device can print to it. When set
to high, you must enter the Passkey code in the sending device in order to
print. (The Passkey code is a 4-digit code that is set on the printer.)
