HP Envy 5642 Setup - Complete Solutions

A printer should be unpacked and set up properly before it is used for printing or scanning. Your printer’s setup process is also straightforward to perform. Begin the setup process from unpacking if you’re setting up a new printer.

If you are setting up an already used (second-hand) printer, restore its settings to their defaults and then begin the setup. On this page, we’ve shown you how to perform the HP Envy 5642 setup for the first time.

HP Envy 5642 Setup - Ten Simple Steps

  • Unpack the printer to begin the setup. Don’t leave even a single piece of packing material or protective tape on the printer. Remove all the packing materials from inside and outside the printer. Move the unpacked printer to a stable, neat surface.
  • Now, load the recommended paper into the tray. Ensure that only the recommended number of papers is loaded into the tray.
  • Get the power cord that was shipped with your printer. Connect the printer to your outlet using the same cord. Turn on the printer.
  • The screen with the list of printer languages will open if you’re turning on the machine for the first time. Choose the language of your preferences from the list and tap Confirm.
  • Similarly, configure the other basic printer settings by following the on-screen instructions. Once you have done it, the HP Envy 5642 printer will display the Install Cartridges message on its screen.
  • Get the genuine HP ink cartridges that were shipped with the printer and unpack them. Open the cartridge access door. Install the prepared cartridges into their slots once the carriage becomes stable. After installing the cartridges, close the door.
  • Now, your HP Envy printer will start printing an alignment page. If the printer doesn’t print the page, open the Setup menu. Choose Printer Maintenance > Align Printer to make the printer print the alignment page. Scan the page to align the ink cartridges.
  • The HP Envy 5642 printer’s hardware setup is completed by aligning the ink cartridges. Now, use the HP Smart app or the printer software to complete the rest of the setup.
  • Using the HP Smart app: Click Continue on the Welcome to HP Smart! screen. Connect and set up your printer on the computer by following the on-screen instructions.
  • Using the printer software: Run the HP Envy 5642 setup file for Windows or Mac on your computer. Select and install the printer drivers when prompted. Complete the setup by performing the on-screen prompts.
