    Yep, same here. Haven't found the solution yet...pretty annoying.

    You can always cancel printing of the test page when turning on the printer, but haven't found any way to remove the problem yet...

    After updating the driver software a few months ago we heve the same problem. Every time we switch on the HP C3180 printer a test page is printed. With the old driver software this problem was not there.



    Is it possible to downgrade the driver software or to solve the problem an other way. The suggested solution by never turn off the pronter is not in my opinion a solution.

You can stop the test page print out every time you turn on the printer. the only way to stop that is leave the machine on. it will go to sleep if you don't use it for aperiod of time.

I don't want test copies made everytime I turn my printer on.


Follow the directions thoroughly when printing the test page.

The test page will print every time when there are ink cartridge/alignment issues such as an empty cartridge.

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.

My printer keeps printing the test page every time it's switched on


Unplug the printer and leave it for three minutes and then plug it back in. This will reboot it and it may cure the problem.

Prints test page


I already posted this some where on this site...but I like to help you...

I had the same problem and being helped by HP operator.
first take the USB cable out of your computer, then put it off and then on again...it starts to print the test page again...then after the printer stops printing, put the just printed testpage face down on the scanner(glas) and press scan manually...after the scanning(you wait till that is finnished) and then put the printer off and on again....then connect the USB cable to the computer and that will stop the printer from printing the testpage every time you startup your printer....

hope it wil solve your problem, it did for me...
