Printing Problem I have a HP C3180 hooked up by usb to my macbook, i bought both brand new very recently. I installed the printer, the test page printed fine and then when i try to print anything else i only get a line of words, not the ones i wanted to print and then the printer shoots out paper without printing anything. What should i do?

Prints a test page every time i turn on printer on hpC3180 i just installed new black ink - hp brand

That is not the Test Page. That is the Alignment Page. The Alignment is not complete.
Scan the page once and then let the alignment complete.

Region codes for France for a photosmart c3180 all in one

Well I had the exact same problem with a C3180 bought in the USA and I moved to France. I called the HP tech support and after I bought 5 brand new cartridges upon their recommendation we haven't been able to print the 10 tap test page

I recommend that you try doing that before you call them otherwise you will be wasting your time

To print the 10 tap test page you need to press simultaneously CANCEL and START COLOR COPY. I couldn't print the 10 tap test page because the printer will not recognize the cartridges bought in France (START COLOR COPY and START BLACK COPY blinking + E in front of COPIES)

If somebody knows an alternate method to print the 10 tap test page, please share it as this is the blocking point with HP support

HP c3180 color printing problems

I would definitely start by printing a self-test page. With your model press and hold the Cancel button and then press the Start Color Copy button and then release both buttons. When this page comes out you should be able to identify the 4 different color, cyan, magenta and yellow. If any of these seperate areas are choppy or non-existant, you need to replace your cartridge. Here is a link that will show you examples of what you should/shouldn't see on the self-test report.
