I believe that after changing the ink cartridge you havent completed the alignment process.This Alignment test page will print everytime you turn the printer ON.To Complete the alignment follow my steps.
1.After turning the printer ON, wait untill the printer prints the Alignment test page.
2.Then place the alignment test paper on the scanner, facing down in a correct position.
3.Then press the Scan button(color) and wait untill the printer ON light stops flashing.
4.After the light stops flashing, take the paper out and the alignment process is completed.
Turn OFF and turn On the printer, it will not print the Test page again.try it and please let me know.Would really appreciate your rating for my solution.
Does this help? You obviously have to insert the media type into the media slot on the far right.(omoademola)
