Hi, Wonder can you help my printer keeps printing off test page everytime it is turned on. this is only happening since i changed the cartridge, never did this before. thanks


Hi,

Your printer is printing alignment pages, because the cartridge alignment was not completed since you replaced them. Follow the below steps to complete alignment.

  1. Turn the printer OFF and then turn back ON.
  2. Wait until the alignment sheet prints out fully.
  3. Place the alignment test page over the scanner glass.
  4. Press start color scan button.
  5. The printer "power" light will start flashing, indication the alignment process.
  6. After the printer stops flashing, turn off and then ON the printer.It will not print any test pages further.
We need to run alignment test every-time while we replace ink cartridges.

Regards
Riztech

I changed the ink cartrige,it keeps saying alignment cancelled and the copy button keeps flashing - when i open it up the ink cartrige wont slide back out it seems stuck.


The printer needs to be aligned and it wasn't done after changing the catridge so it does not want to continue. Have you tried pushing the flashing copy button to print another alignment page? Do you know how to align the printer?

After changing a cartridge the printer wants to print an alignment page to make sure that it prints correctly. Some printers have you print a page and they auto align themselves. Others cue you to print the alignment page which has a picture or other graphics that are in specific places and then it instructs you to insert the alignment page face down and press "ok". The printer scans the alignment page and configures the print heads to set up by the marks. It uses the alignment page as a map of where the print should be on the paper.

Try unplugging the printer from the power supply and wait about 30 seconds. Then plug it back in and turn it on. The display should say "print alignment page". Choose yes or confirm to continue. Your printer will either print the page and align itself, or print the page and tell you to insert it and continue. Either way follow the prompts and complete the alignment process in order to continue printing as normal.

If you are unable to get the printer to reset and start the alignment procedure over again, please advise and I will help you solve this problem.

Hi,
i understand that you are facing some problem with your printer. Please follow the below steps to resolve your issue:

1. Turn off your printer and disconnect all the possible removable parts from your printer like cables, memory cards (if any) cartridges, etc
2. Fix them all back to position again properly.
3. Uninstall all the software and drivers related your printer from your computer and use the driver cd which came along with your device to reinstall back. connect your device to computer when prompted to do so while installing the driver.
4. If your buttons on the printer seems to got struck within, then try to pull them out carefully and don't make that to struck again inside until you give the printer to service for next time.
5. Please click the below link to read to the basic manual which guides you about the device operation.
http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01416716.pdf

6. whenever you connect a new cartridge or reconnect the existing cartridge then you may be prompted to align the print cartrdges. If prompted, you may be asked to take a printout. Read the instructions shown and provide proper reply to it by seeing to the printed pages ( normally colour and lines will be printed) as this will align your print cartridges and will produce quality prints from next time onwards.

i hope this solves your issue and let me know your comments.
Thanks

Every time I change a cartridge in my HPC4280 printer, a window pops up on my monitor and says I need to do an alignment. Fine, but even though I tell it I already have an alignment sheet, it prints...


I believe that you are not completing the alignment process.

Let me explain the alignment process..

1- Remove the usb cable from printer and computer if connected through usb cable.

2- Turn off the printer, wait for 30 seconds, turn on the printer

3- It will print an alignment page

4- Place this page on scanner glass of printer from right hand corner

5- Press OK or SCAN button on printer

6- This will complete the alignment process.

It will not print an alignment page again and again.

Printing Allignment page


Re-install the software and do try to align it when it asks for it again. If it still asks you for the alignment, go to the printer options and try to find a control that will disable printer page alignment.

hope this helps!

Keep printing test sheets


A lot of HP printers print a page to enable the print head alignment and calabration. This normally orcurs when a cartridge has been changed. If the alignment page fails then it will reprint alignment page until it can align.

So, you need to get that page it prints and place it on the glass and press scan, then it will complete alignment and be ready to rock.

I just got off the HP help line.  After changing my black ink cartridge a test page was printing each time I turned the machine on.  This is very costly, in both time and ink as the cartridges themselves for this machine hold very little ink.  I tried to learn from HP tech how to turn off the test-print while keeping my color cartridge empty.  It turns out that you cant do it.  HP requires you to keep buying and using cartridges whether you need them or not.If you buy the color ink it will use it up in its testings.  And if you dont buy the color cartridge it will use up your black ink by printing the test each time you turn on the printer.  The printer was inexpensive sure, but I'm paying for it in wasted ink.
