How do I get my HP C3100 printer to stop printing a test page every time I turn it on?

Don't turn it off. Seriously, it'll go into power down mode itself, and wake up when you need it. Also, if you use it as fax, turning it off doesn't make much sense.

HP Photosmart C3100 printer is printing very slow.

Check 'properties' when printing and make sure that you are not printing at the highest quality color if you are not printing pictures.

HP printer not printing true color all of a sudden.

Altho the cartridge is new, you may have used all of the ink of one color. Pictures take an enormous amount of ink to print and all three primary colors are used to create the hues and colors indicated on the picture. Try a new color cartridge and see if that works.

HP Photosmart C3100 series

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.
