    jaggujoshi, thanks. I have already done that - it has not helped. Sometimes the printer 'freezes' after this, and I have to either go to 'printers/faxes' and cancel print or go to admin tools/print spooler/stop/restart, then back to print/fax and cancel print job. then I can print a job. and, receive a new test/realign page!!
    (I am acrueing a fine amount of scrap notepaper - but it's an expensive way to obtain it!)

    Thank you chanddra2009.

    Yes, I did do that.

    I have disconnected all leads for a period of time. Reconnected them. Opened cartridge compartment, removed and replaced both b&w and Colour cartridges, executed the alignment facility (again!), Deleted print jobs in the queue and - just for luck - aligned the cartridges again.

    Result --- At the moment, I am not getting an alignment/test page print-out!!

    Thanks everyone, for all the input.

    (I have no idea what caused the problem in the first place, nor do I have any idea why it appears to have been solved. All the things that I have just done, I did before!)

Dear Sir,

Welcome back to Fixya

After changing ink cartridge,did you let the unit do an alignment? If not, you need to allow the unit to finish the alignment.If couldn't print another "alignment page" since the print queue was frozen in "pending" status ,so open the printer and remove and re-insert the ink cartridges.

Then place that "alignment page" on to the scanning bed and press the printer's scan button. The scanner startup again and 60 seconds later, then it start printing the documents remaining in the printer queue.

I think it deffinately solves your problem.If you have any problem regarding this issue leave a feedback we were happy to assist you.


Have a Nice Day!

Dear,

When you get that test page. As per instruction on that test page. Scan it once and then it will be fine to work. Do it once. It will work.

Cheers
Jaggu

HP PSC 1315 Prints test page every time printer is installed


Hi Jay,
This is mike, actually the problem is that that printer has not completed the aligning process, as a result the printer is printing the test page (Alignment page) every time when you turn it ON. So, I would suggest you to let the printer prints the alignment page and check whether the printer prints the page with all colors and it printed fine, once it is done, disconnect the USB cable behind the printer and then place the alignment page on the scanner glass by facing down the printed page downwards and press the scan button. This start the alignment process and the scanning process will be completed once the ON light is stop blinking. This will complete the alignment process.

Once done try to turn off and turn on the printer and check for the result. This should resolve the issue.

However, if the issue persist, then please revert back to me. Be sure that you use the HP genuine ink cartridges, not refilled nor re-manufacture.

Test printing


If you've recently changed your cartridges, the printer will try to print a test/alignment page. Note the instructions on the test page indicate what to do to complete the testing/alignment procedure.

1) Let it print.
2) Place the test page upside down on the scan plate.
3) Hit "Scan" and let it finish.

When the machine completes the scanning procedure, you'll be able to switch the printer on and off or reboot your computer without it printing the test page. By Dubbya

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

Stop jobs keeps preventing print jobs


Windows is absoulty notorious in glitching any time it takes a notion. There is software out there that will prevent about 80% of it too. ( freebees ) I suggest first step go to add/remove programs, dleate the program for it ( software ) and re load it. Generally this cures probleums like re-booting your computer. If it's afeeding probleum, then the rollers need to be cleaned. I use denatured achol and quality "Q" tips. If printing is the probleum, the ports in the tank feeds ecome clogged from time to time too. Same senerio there-denaturd achol and quality "Q" tips.Denatured achol doese not leave behind any resedue like other types. If after all this it still doesn't co-operate, then replacement is in order. ( if warentee is deleated ) Dancer
