Re: Can I leave the power on 24/7 on my new Photosmart C7280 All In One? (776 Views)
12-21-2008 09:33 AM
I network the printer in my home and don't want to go down and turn it on every time I need to print. But I am concerned that this will hurt the LED display over time as there doesn't appear to be a power saving feature with non use and the display stays on all the time. Anyone know if there is a power saving feature that will shut off the display after a period of time with non use but still leave the printer on to print the next time you need it?

I leave the power on my C7180 24/7 because I primarily link to the printer via TCP/IP and Bluetooth. After a period (I've never timed it to see how long but it is less than a day) the LCD screen will go out. I assume that the C7280 would be the same. It may be that on the C7280 it's been made a configuration item in the Setup.
