123.hp.com/envy120 | 123 HP Envy 120 Features
The Envy 120 impresses with its style quotient, starting with the black box and the packaging that it comes in. With a see through scanner lid and a glass front panel that elevates itself to a 45 degree angle to reveal the paper tray, the Envy is sure to get some looks but it disappoints a tad bit when it comes to the print speed of 2.1 ppm.
The text and graphics print quality is above par but the Envy 120 is a good bargain with its in built apps that print articles, newspapers or even crosswords at scheduled intervals. You can also print directly from a USB and save paper with the Duplex printing mode. The Envy 120 is for you if you’re willing to compromise print speed over looks.

- • Open the ink cartridge access area and the lock lever.
- • Remove the cartridge from the wrapper and remove the transparent film on the copper coloured contacts using the orange pull tab. Don’t touch the nozzles or the copper coloured contacts as they might affect the printer performance.
- • Insert the cartridge into the slot and close the lock lever such that it snaps into place perfectly.
- • To insert the black cartridge into the slot, follow the same steps.
- Once the printer has ascertained that the cartridges installed are genuine, it asks you to load unused paper into the tray.

• In order to load unused paper into the paper tray, tap the Paper Tray icon right beside the Wireless icon.
• The front panel opens and the paper tray slides out.

Connecting your printer wirelessly would be a better option since it allows hassle-free access to various web services. These instructions guide you through the Wireless Setup process. Once you’ve selected Wireless as the mode of connection, the Wireless Setup Wizard can guide you through the Wireless connection process after which you can download the software drivers from 123.hp.com/setup 120 .
123 HP Envy 120 Wireless Setup Wizard
Wireless Setup Wizard helps your printer connect to your wireless router. Before getting started with this Setup, gather your Network Name (SSID) and the password. Also make sure that your router is switched on and within the printer’s detectable range. Check if your computer is connected to the same network as the one that your printer must be connected to. Now, follow the steps given below to setup the Wireless Setup Wizard.
• Once you’ve chosen Wireless as the preferred connection, the printer automatically searches for the available networks in the area and displays them on the control panel.
• Select the name of the network that you wish to connect to and enter the password with the correct case letters.
The printer now attempts to connect to the network. If the name of your network is not found, do the following.
• Try to bring the router closer to the printer so that it can be detected by the printer.
• Enter the name of your network manually using the correct case letters.
If the above method doesn’t work, visit HP’s official support website for more details. You can now learn how to download and install the software drivers from 123.hp.com/setup 120.
123 HP Envy 120 Driver Download and Installation
Since the Installation CD might not have the drivers for your operating system if it was updated after the printer release, it is always a good idea to download the software drivers from 123.hp.com/setup 120.
• Open a browser and go to 123.hp.com/setup 120.
• The HP Printer Support website opens. Click the download button and wait for the download to finish.
• Click the software on the download bar of the browser.
• The HP Easy Start Utility opens and begins extracting the required files for your HP Envy 120.
• HP Easy Start Utility now guides you through the installation process.
Here are some points to be kept in mind during the installation process.
• The printer must be detected automatically during the installation process. In case it isn’t detected, select the name of the printer automatically from the list.
• The software will prompt you to choose between a full feature software download and a basic feature software download. The basic feature software driver only includes basic functionality like printing and scanning.
• Also, make sure that you enable HP Auto Connect so that the system can apply wireless settings from the system to the printer.
• Once the whole installation process is complete, the printer automatically prints a Web Services Information sheet.
This completes the Wireless Setup of your printer from 123.hp.com/setup 120 or 123.hp.com/envy120 .
