    I need to calidrate my HP PSC 1210 All-In-One InkJet Printer.

    Can you please tell me how to do this.

    When I re-newed the cartridges and printed the new sheet for calibration, only the instructions printed, not the black and yellow squares.

    in Windows Vista, there is no option to calibrate the printer. Because the printer uses basic-drivers by the operating system and HP didn't make the old drivers from XP compatible with Vista

    the options mentioned are not available on windows vista

Hi *s*

(bottom left corner windows START)
got to;
start/settings/printers/ and click

right click your printer and select printing preferences
click on the tab that says SERVICES
then click on the services icon button (picture)

you will see three choices;
align,
clean
print a test page.

Aligning is what you want.(calibration is just a different word)

You can also remove the ink cartridges as you usually do and then put them back in, this triggers and automatic printed page and then walks you through scanning and the alignment.*s*

if by chance you still have blurry printing and know your machine should be ok, try cleaning.( same procedure, different last choice- you clean the heads)

You can also check to see if the proper paper is selected. For instance, if you are trying to print heavy greeting card paper it must be set to that or it will not print properly. *s*

If you have thrown up your hands and tried all this, and nothing works. Go through your printer preferences and select SET DEFAULT SETTINGS buttons.
It will knock everything back to the way it left the factory *S*

Thank you and good luck. Please remember to give my answer a rating *S*

How i replace ETB for hp cp4025


Replacing the Transfer Belt (ITB, Transfer Kit) HP Color LaserJet CP4525 CM4530
1. Open the printer's right side door.
2. Use the blue lever (see callout 1 in picture below) to lower the secondary transfer assembly.
3. Grasp the small handles on the transfer belt assembly (circled in blue in picture below), and begin gently pulling the assembly out towards you, until a set of 2 larger handles pop free on the sides of the transfer belt assembly.
4. Now grasp the larger handles on the transfer belt assembly, and continue pulling the transfer belt straight out of the printer until it is completely removed.
5. Avoid touching the surface of the new transfer belt. Install in reverse order, sliding it securely into the machine.
6. After replacing the Transfer Belt, it's a good idea to perform a Full Calibration (or even several Full Calibrations in a row, if you are having print quality issues). Full Calibrations help with print quality by aligning the color tones, the drums, and the color plane. Each Full Calibration takes about 4 minutes. To perform a Full Calibration: Press MENU to enter the menus. Press Down Arrow to highlight CONFIGURE DEVICE. Press Checkmark to select CONFIGURE DEVICE. Press Down Arrow to highlight PRINT QUALITY. Press Checkmark to select PRINT QUALITY. Press Down Arrow to highlight FULL CALIBRATE NOW. Press Checkmark to select FULL CALIBRATE NOW. Wait for the printer to calibrate (usually takes 4 minutes or so), and then print a test page. If print quality still needs improvement, repeat the Calibration. If multiple Calibrations don't help, some of the toner cartridges may need replacement.
