HP DeskJet 3632 Printer Unboxing




Just purchased this HP DeskJet 3632 Printer for a customer.  Part of the 3630 All-In-One series of HP printers, we selected the 3632 because it can easily print documents and pictures wirelessly from mobile devices (tablets and phones).



I’ve been charged with setting this up at her place, and the first part of doing that is to unbox it.  So, we detail here how to unbox this HP printer in the safest way, what comes with it.  So, let’s get started.

2. Slice the Clear Sealing Tape 

The tape runs across the top opening of the box, in the middle, where the two box flaps meet underneath the tape. The open box top is displayed in the next picture.

3. Slide Printer Out of Box

Note that it’s inside some Styrofoam supports, which will also slide out along with the printer.   In the next picture, our printer has been removed from the box, and is shown with the Styrofoam supports still encasing the sides.

4. Remove Styrofoam Supports from Printer

While doing so, be careful not to let the printer fall and bump against the table / floor.  Shown next, is the printer with the packing supports removed.

6. Pull Open the Outer Access Panel

Facing the printer as shown in the previous picture, the front panel latches are located on the left and right front corners of the printer, near the top.  The plastic door opens downward, as shown in the next picture.



7. Remove all Blue Tape and Loose Cardboard from Printer

Note the typical locations of this tape in the next picture, as pointed at by the pink arrows.

8. Open the Inner Access Panel

Inside the outer chamber, locate the inner access panel latch, near the top, just beneath the arrowed blue tape at the top center of the 3632.  Insert an index finger, and gently push down while at the same time, pulling the hatch outward.  The result is shown in the next picture.

9. Remove and Open Inner Box

See this small box as shown inside the printer in the last picture, with the piece of blue tape dangling from it.  This contains the cables and ink cartridges.



10. Check Included Printer Accessories

You should have received two (2) #63 ink cartridges (one black, and one color), a power cord, and a USB cable, as displayed in the next picture.
