SOURCE: Test page

I had the same problem and being helped by HP operator.
first take the USB cable out of your computer, then put it off and then on again...it starts to print the test page again...then after the printer stops printing, put the just printed testpage face down on the scanner(glas) and press scan manually...after the scanning(you wait till that is finnished) and then put the printer off and on again....then connect the USB cable to the computer and that will stop the printer from printing the testpage every time you startup your printer....

hope it wil solve your problem, it did for me...

SOURCE: MY test page always prints

Hi,

I belive that after replacing the INk cartridges, you are experiancing this problem. The Alignment test sheet always prints everytime you turn on the printer, if u haven't completed the Alignment process.

To complete the Alignment process,
>>Once the printer finished printing the Alignmnet test sheet.
>> Place the Test sheet staright on the scanner glass facing down towards right hand corner.
>>Press the scan button(color), the Power ON light will start flashing, wait until it stops flashing.
>>Alignmnet process completed.


Thank You

You were being cheap when you ran out of ink and replaced only the Black Ink Cartridge.

Replace the Color Cartridge and the test page will stop printing when you turn it on.

My HP C3180 printer has unprinted data stored in it. How can I delete all this data without printing it ?? Thanks,


What i would suggest would be to reset your printer:

***Perform a hard reset***

Follow these steps to reset the product.
-Turn the power off.
-Unplug the power cord and the data cable from the product.
-Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.
-Reconnect the power cord to the product and wall outlet, and then turn the power on.
-Print a self-test page again and check the print speed.
-If the test page prints in about 30 seconds, the reset has corrected the issue. If that does not resolve your problem, check the link below and follow it as per your issue.

Good luck,
Rodrick

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

Thanks

My printer keeps printing the test page every time it's switched on. I have C3180 all in one printer.


That is a "configuration-option" -- navigate through the controls on the printer itself to disable that option; or, just leave the printer on -- it will go to "power-save" mode after a few minutes of non-usage.

Unplug the printer and leave it for three minutes and then plug it back in. This will reboot it and it may cure the problem.
