Okay, just chatted online with an HP tech, and she helped me solve the problem!

She said: the printer prints an alignment page everytime you turn on due to incomplete initialization process.

Turn off the printer and Turn on.
Please unplug the usbcable.

  1. Lift the scanner lid of the product.
  2. Place the top of alignment page face down in the left front corner of the glass.
  3. Place the alignment page face down
  4. Close the scanner lid of the printer.
  5. Press the Scan button.
  6. The On/Resume light will blink during the alignment process.
  7. After the On/Resume light stops blinking, alignment is complete.
  8. Turn off printer and Turn on.
It shouldn't print the alignment page any more! :)
Hope this helps!

I have a 3100 series HP. On it you select "Properties", then the "Features" tab. On that tab, there is a "Resizing Options" menu item. It has a drop down menu with "Letter", "More...", and "Custom" choices. There you can define the size.

SOURCE: How do I install ink HP photosmart c3180

Hey DDD,

It looks like HP put together an animation to help with replacing the ink cartridges. I know you are just trying to install them for the first time, but it might be helpful:

Also, since you are just setting up the new product, double check that you've removed all the packing material and tape from the cartridges. I've made that mistake before ;-)

Cheers,

_K

I have a Canon printer. Whenever pictures or text gets a double or blurry image I open the printer solutions menu. It sounds as though there is a problem with inkjet alignment. By clicking the realignment button the printer will automatically realign the jets. I usually test the alignment by printing a page from that program. All the line segments should line up.
