    my hp printer "j5780" had the same problem. every time I turned on the printer I had to print and alignment page and read it in and then got an error message that it could not recognize the alignment page. only then could I cancel the alignment and use the printer. I have been back and forth many times with the hp help desk, and they were no help. finally I googled the problem and found the solution right away. I put in a new color cartridge even though it was not empty and then the alignment worked.

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.

HP PSC 1315 Prints test page every time printer is installed


Hi Jay,
This is mike, actually the problem is that that printer has not completed the aligning process, as a result the printer is printing the test page (Alignment page) every time when you turn it ON. So, I would suggest you to let the printer prints the alignment page and check whether the printer prints the page with all colors and it printed fine, once it is done, disconnect the USB cable behind the printer and then place the alignment page on the scanner glass by facing down the printed page downwards and press the scan button. This start the alignment process and the scanning process will be completed once the ON light is stop blinking. This will complete the alignment process.

Once done try to turn off and turn on the printer and check for the result. This should resolve the issue.

However, if the issue persist, then please revert back to me. Be sure that you use the HP genuine ink cartridges, not refilled nor re-manufacture.

My HP printer PSC 1510 All-in-One no longer asks me to align my ink cartridges after a change of cartridges. Now, after a system recovery, it prints an alignment page every time I turn it on, whereas...


The only way to stop this is to press the cancel button, just as it tries to print the test page.

Various people have said the printer won't align (calibrate) successfully unless both ink cartridges are more than 50% full, and until it aligns successfully, it will continue to print the test page on start-up.

It is a total waste of ink and paper, so remember to hit the cancel button when you turn it on.

Replacing the print cartridgesgtabtop.gif
  1. Turn on the HP PSC and lower the print-carriage access door.
    The print carriage will move into the access area. Figure 1: Opening the print-carriage access door
    c00034850.jpg
  2. After the carriage stops moving, push down on the top of the print cartridge to release it, and then pull it toward you out of the slot.
      NOTE: The black cartridge is on the right side of the print carriage.
    Figure 2: Removing the print cartridge
    c00034851.jpg
      NOTE: It is normal to see ink buildup in the print cartridge slots.

  3. Remove the new print cartridge from the packaging and gently remove the plastic tape by using the pink pull tab.
      CAUTION: Do not touch the copper contacts or ink nozzles. Install the cartridge immediately upon removing the tape to prevent ink from drying in the nozzles.
    Figure 3: Removing the plastic tape
    c00034852.jpg
  4. Push the new print cartridge into the appropriate slot at a slight angle, until it clicks into place.
      CAUTION: Do not attempt to push the cartridge straight into the slot. It must slide in at a slight angle.
    Figure 4: Inserting the print cartridge

  5. Close the print-carriage access door.


Using a photo print cartridgegtabtop.gif To use the photo print cartridge, remove the black print cartridge and insert the photo print cartridge in its place.
The photo print cartridge can be purchased separately and will optimize the quality of printed photos.
With the tri-color print cartridge and photo print cartridge installed, you have a six-ink system, which provides enhanced quality photos. For printing regular text documents, use the black print cartridge.
Use a print cartridge protector to keep either print cartridge secure when it is not being used. Figure 5: Storing the print cartridge

Aligning the print cartridgesgtabtop.gif After installing or replacing a print cartridge, the HP PSC will automatically print a cartridge alignment page.

  2. Press Scan .
    The HP PSC will align the print cartridges. During the alignment the button LED will blink until the alignment is complete.

I just got off the HP help line.  After changing my black ink cartridge a test page was printing each time I turned the machine on.  This is very costly, in both time and ink as the cartridges themselves for this machine hold very little ink.  I tried to learn from HP tech how to turn off the test-print while keeping my color cartridge empty.  It turns out that you cant do it.  HP requires you to keep buying and using cartridges whether you need them or not.If you buy the color ink it will use it up in its testings.  And if you dont buy the color cartridge it will use up your black ink by printing the test each time you turn on the printer.  The printer was inexpensive sure, but I'm paying for it in wasted ink.

Aligning printer after new ink cartridge inserted


SOLUTION: Start the cartridge alignment by performing a series of button presses from the front panel of the product.
  • HP PSC 1200 and 1300 series:
    1. Turn on the HP PSC 1200 or 1300 series product.
    2. Disconnect the USB cable from the all-in-one.
    3. Press the sequence of front panel buttons below to start the print cartridge alignment process. The button-press sequence must be completed within ten seconds. It might take several tries to complete the sequence within ten seconds.
      1. Press and hold Cancel .
      2. While holding Cancel , press On .
      3. When the Check Paper and Check Print Cartridge lights begin to blink simultaneously, release both buttons.
      4. Press Cancel again.
      5. Press Copies .
      6. Press Paper Type .
      7. Press Color Start Copy . The alignment page will begin printing. If the alignment page does not print, repeat the button-press sequence in this step.
    4. When the alignment page has printed, place the page face down on the scanner glass and press Scan . The alignment is complete when the On light stops blinking.
    5. Reconnect the USB cable.
CAUSE: This can occur if the cartridge alignment is canceled or times out without a valid print cartridge alignment stored in memory.
