You will only get the calibration page no matter what you try because the printer needs to complete that task before it will let anything else get printed. This cannot be avoided for this model printer! Just follow the instructions as listed on the calibration page (even though you think it may not be needed) and then the printer will act normally!
Calibration is one of the functions performed from the Printer Assistant icon on the desktop. If the Printer Assistant icon on the desktop has been deleted from the system, the same tasks can also be accomplished from the Printer Toolbox . The Printer Toolbox can be accessed through the Printer Folder or by right-clicking the Printer Icon on the Taskbar
Please follow these steps to calibrate your printer
Double-click the Printer Assistant icon on the desktop. The Printer Assistant menu will appear with a list of options
Select the Tools and Updates option or the Utilities option (depending on your driver version).
Printer Maintenance menu will appear.
Select the Calibrate Printer tab from the Printer Maintenance options
Click the Calibrate tab. The printer will print the first calibration page.
In the Cartridge alignment page, please inspect the straight colored lines in Sections A, B, C and D . Choose the straightest lines in each section to indicate the best cartridge alignment.
In the Page alignment area, please verify Section E . Then, select the bar and the arrow closest to the edge of the page without being cut off, to indicate the best page alignment.
In the Calibrate Device window, enter the selected alignment values in the Pen Alignment and in the Page Alignment fields and click the Continue tab
The second calibration page will be printed now. The page will contain two patterns: a square and a cross . The lines on the patterns should be horizontally and vertically aligned . Click the Done tab if the lines are correct or the Calibrate tab to repeat the calibration process
The first calibration page contains five sets of alignment patterns. The calibration will cover two areas of alignment. The Cartridge alignment is designed to obtain the best print quality and the Page alignment is designed to ensure that the print is aligned correctly on the page.
If the Printer Assistant and its files have been deleted from the system, the maintenance features in the Tools and Updates section of the Printer Assistant are also available in the Printer Toolbox . Open the Printer Toolbox and perform the services by following the instructions below:
Right-click the Printer Icon on the Taskbar .
Click Open the Deskjet Toolbox option.
Select the Printing Service tab in the Printer Toolbox .
Choose the Calibrate the printer option.
NOTE:HP recommends to use HP plain paper when performing the cartridges calibration process.
NOTE:These printers could work with one or two print cartridges. HP recommends to perform the cartridge calibration process with the two cartridges installed in order to get the best print quality. Anyway, the printer can also be calibrated with one cartridge installed if the customer decides to work in that way.
Run the "disable cartridge check" It will be in the Diagnostics. Once you start the test, you can remove all the cartridges. Put the cyan in the black cartridge slot. print a config page. If it is all blue, you have another bad cartridge. If it prints correctly(minus the other colors)...continue Now put the magenta in the cyan cartridge slot. Print the config page again. If you have red all over the page, you have a problem with the slot itself. Press the STOP button and then select EXIT diagnostics. Put the cartridges back where they all go and run CALIBRATION more than once. Select/menus/down arrow/configure devce/select configure device Down arrow/print quality/seect print quality Down arrow/ calibrate now. Select it and wait.
Try this one, Turn on the printer, Take out the inks, remove the printhead, put back the printhead make sure it will snap and you hear a click, put the inks back, wait for the printer to initialize, Press the Menu button, look for Calibrate printer, then print calibration page, then scan it after. Load a regular paper. Then try to print a demo page by pressing Photo and Copy at the same for 5 seconds then let it go. If same problem persist call this no for further assistance 1800 421 6699 Thanks
That is probably the calibration page (if that´s the case, it is always necessary when a new cartridge is installed). If the equipment is an All-in-One printer, put that page in the scanner and press the Scan button.
here is the troubleshooting steps
try to remove the ink cartridges and put it baack again but make sure to hear a click sound when you put the ink cartridges,after that try to print again picture and if still has lines through it press the menu in the printer scroll down until you can see the calibrate printer,press ok and select the print calibration page and hit the ok button..after it print place the calibration page in the scanner glass and press start, try to print again a picture and if still has a line call the kodak hot line 1 800 421 6699 and you might have a printhead replacement.
Hello, you can print a calibration sheet from the front panel of the printer. Hit menu on the panel of the printer and scroll down to calibration printer and hit ok. Then hit ok on print calibration page and it should proceed to print a calibration page. After it is done printing, it will tell you to scan the calibration sheet.
