Taking out a HP printer, plugging it in and seeing that something is out of order can sometimes lead to the feeling of being scammed. After all, you just bought a printer from the top brand which swears that devices are user-friendly. So why can’t you just plug and play?
Well, printers are complex devices, and just because HP has done a good job of marketing their devices as accessible doesn't mean they reinvented the confounding technology behind printers. The HP printer setup can be the most important step for the duration of the device, as it often dictates how well the printer will function as time goes on (read: how likely it's to break with prolonged use).
Therefore, you can't afford to have an out-of-the box attitude, and Anya would very much like for you to read her printer set-up guides instead of trying to go for a DIY approach. Taking a little extra time during the initial setup can help avert a host of issues down the line, and the few minutes you spend reading Anya's setup instructions can help prevent a lot of issues and malfunctions down the line.
