Turning printer on

In the last month, everytime I turn my printer on, it prints one of those practice sheets.  It's wasting a ton of ink, but I don't know how to stop it.

Thats because the Alignment was not completed sucessfully.

Remove both the ink cartridges from the All-In-One unplug the power cord from the Printer and also from the wall outlet.
Leave it unplugged for at least about 1Min time.
Now insert the ink cartridges back to the All-In-One and reconnect the power cord to the wall outlet and Al-In-One
And after it prints the alignmamnt page make sure to align the page as per the instructions either in the computer or in the All-In-One.

Does not print


***hi there,il be willing to help you on that. ****
the nozzles of the printer might be clogged by dried inks thats why when your printing, its feeding the paper, as if its printing but no inks on the paper. print a nozzle check to see which part or color have clogs, if there are gaps or breaks, do head cleaning untill no more gaps then try printing.
Running a Printer Check
1. Load a few sheets of plain paper in the sheet feeder. 2. Turn off the Epson Stylus NX100 Series. 3. Hold down the nx100_tx100_ug.1.96.1.jpg Stop button as you press the nx100_tx100_ug.1.96.2.jpg On button to turn the Epson Stylus NX100 Series back on. Hold down both buttons until the nx100_tx100_ug.1.96.3.jpg On light begins to flash, then release the buttons. 1. Load a few sheets of plain paper in the sheet feeder. 2.

Hold down both buttons until the nx100_tx100_ug.1.96.3.jpg On light begins to flash, then release the buttons. 4. Check the nozzle check pattern that prints to see if there are gaps in the lines. nx100_tx100_ug.1.96.5.jpg 5. If there are no gaps, the print head is clean and you can continue printing. If there are gaps or the pattern is faint, clean the print head. If your printouts are unexpectedly light, or dots or lines are missing, you may need to clean the print head. This unclogs the nozzles so they can deliver ink properly. Print head cleaning uses ink, so clean it only if quality declines.
You can also clean the print head by holding down the stop button on the printer for three seconds. (This only works when the red ink light is off.) Run a nozzle check to confirm that the print head is clean.
Caution: When you don’t turn on your printer for a long time, print quality can decline, so turn it on and print a few pages at least once a month to maintain good print quality. ***if my troubleshooting steps are helpful, pls vote for me, i will appreciate it, so that I can be a part of fixya, thanks, Godbless****

Turn off alignment feature


After you install new ink cartridges or attach the printer to a different computer it will go through this exercise. Make sure you also do the next step... a scan of what you printed-out; or you'll get that message every time.

Can you explain me please, how can I disable printing of Cleaning Page? It prints everytime before I want to print something. thanks


How long between print jobs? If you mean that it prints every time you turn it on, there's no way to stop that. This is what prevents your printhead from becoming hopelessly plugged. These printers are best suited for volumes over 3,000 per month. Anything less than 1,000 will end up costing you in repairs or wasted ink.

Test paper


Can only think that if the printer has a menu screen there may be an option to turn off that function. If it is only happening when you use it within office software...that the option is there to switch off the function......more often than not that is the case.
