Re: HELP!!

First off, I'm not too sure if that Printer is a color printer. Its a color scanner yes, but i don't think is a Color Laser Printer! Secondly, can you explain in more detail what kind of scanning and printing issues you have witht the printer? Prints unclear as in blurry or too light? are u having trouble installing the scanner or is it not scanning the images correctly? regards babb

How do you stop a test page from printing every time the printer is turned on?

Welcome to FixYa!

Here's how to stop the unwanted print out of test pages.

1. Let the printer print the test page.
2. Place the printed test page in the scanner face down and wait for 10 seconds.
3. Press the scan button of the printer to scan the printed test page.
Make sure that the printer scanned the document properly.

That's it. Every time you install a new cartridge, the printer aligns the print cartridge as well as testing/aligning the scanner.

Note: Try to look at the top of the test page, it should have instructions to place it in the scanner.

I hope that this will help.
Thank you for using FixYa.

Our printer will use the copier and scanner function fine but when we try to print some thing out it will not use any ink. we replaced both ink cartage black and color. All colors work when we copy or scan...

Do give the ink some time to come through, gravity will do the rest.

You could clean the ink heads to get the ink to come through quicker.

When printing the document, go through the settings and see if you see anything to do with the darkness of the print.

Copier feature (Black or Color) only produces a Black page

I beleive you are not able to make a color copy, once try to scan from the computer or all-in-one to check whether the scanner mechanism is working properly or not, if the scan comes out fine then remove the color cartridge and clean the copper contacts of the cartridge with soft cotton cloth and also check the ink level of the cartridge, if the issue persists replace the color cartridge and if even the scan does not comes out good then there is an issue with the scanner mechanism.
