Hi Adele,
The only way to reset your printer is to unplug the power cable, wait a few seconds, and plug it in again.
Also if you still have the driver/software cd that came with your printer, uninstall your printer driver which you will find by clicking on the start menu, then printers and faxes. Reinstall the driver and software from your cd and try using the printer again. If you no longer have the cd, you can find the software on HP's website:
If this does not resolve the problem, try putting a new cartridge in (as you will need a new one soon anyway). If this doesnt work, then I'm afraid you will have to send your printer in for servicing. Remember that it may cost you less to purchase a new printer than having your old one repaired.
Good luck.

Printer was working fine, suddenly prints very slowly. Tried uninstalling and re-installing. Still slow.


Thanks for trusting FIXYA for your problems

Its just the cartridge problem and needs to be replaced. Normally its with color cartridge but make sure and replace the faulty and it should be ok.

Align the print cartridges again to make sure its not the reason as this can also cause the printer to print slow.

HP LaserJet 1500... prints color yellow ONLY

It's possible that the toner in the cartridge is not evenly distributed. You can redistribute toner if you gently shake the cartridge from side to side, then reinstall it to see if this affects performance. Please also see this article.
You might wish to use the guided troubleshooting option available from HP support here. Or have a look at the troubleshooting section in the user manual here. Then clean the engine & calibrate the printer, as described pg. 88.
If that's no help, please see this forum post and the linked attachments within.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

HP Printer 1500 series

Normal 0 Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

I have an hp 1500 all in one series copy /scanner and every time i turn on the hp i get a test/alignment print out which is using up a lot of my ink how do i stop this from happening ?

Once the alignment page is printed you should scan it, if done successfully the next time you turn the printer on it won't happen.
If it happens again remove the ink cartridges and reseat them and try again.
