Question about HP PSC 1510 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Every time i turn the printer on, it print a test sheet. I tried the earlier suggestion regarding "open HP Director and click on the factory settings button". The factory setting button was not avaliable only the apply button. The printer is a HP PSC 1510v all-in one
A lot of HP printers print a page to enable the print head alignment and calabration. This normally orcurs when a cartridge has been changed. If the alignment page fails then it will reprint alignment page until it can align.
So, you need to get that page it prints and place it on the glass and press scan, then it will complete alignment and be ready to rock.

I had the same problem. Here's the solution:
1) Disconnect the power plug of the printer
2) Reconnect the power plug and at the seem time hold the first button (cancel) until you see the light flashing. As soon as you see it start flashing, release the cancel button. It will flash even faster for a moment.
After I reset my printer this way, it stopped trying to re-align on power-up.

If your printer is automatically print a test page every time you turn it on, try this: You literally have to turn it off, disconnect printer (with the USB port) from the computer, turn it back on (with the USB port still disconnected from the computer) and run a test alignment page, turn the printer off, reconnect the USB and then turn it on again. If you don't it will print a color alignment page every single time you turn it on. I hope this helps!

The problem is, you need both black and color cartridges to complete the alignment process. If you don't use color printing (like me and many other users), it won't accept the test page as a correct one and will print it again and again.The way I deal with this problem is that I keep the test page I printed when I bought the printer and had the alignment test for the first time, and I scan it every time I replace the ink. The alignment is far from perfect, though, and there is no way to do it yourself manually.

WHAT CAUSES THE HP OFFICEJET J5780 ALL-IN-ONE PRINTER TO TEST PRINT AN ALIGNM,ENT PAGE EACH TIME I TURN THE PRINTER ON. ALSO WHEN PLACING THE TEST SHEET INTO THE PRINTER AND PUSHING OKAY AS DIRECTED THE ALIGNMENT FAILS EVERY TIME BUT THE PRINTER PRINTS OKAY.

Here's my solution to the test page print problem --
Immediately after you turn the printer on press the CANCEL button. This stops the printer from running the test page routine.
If you find that you sometimes forget to press the CANCEL button or delay pressing it, you may want to get in the habit or removing all the paper from the paper tray when you have finished all your print jobs and intend to turn off the printer. Obviously the test page cannot print if the paper tray is empty.

You can bypass the cartidge alignment process. Steps for the various models are given at:

I had the same problem and after working with a HP technician discovered that the HP alignment page will continue to print until a successful alignment is completed. The HP technician stated that in order for a successful alignment to occur both cartridges need to be at least 50% full. In my case I replaced the black cartridge but, the color cartridge had less than 50% ink. I replaced the color cartridge, performed the alignment and the alignment page stopped printing. What a waste of ink.

LEAVE THE PRINTER ON 24/7. What an excellant idea from cshields175 to leave the printer on 24/7, at say an average power use of 5Kw this will cost less than $10 ( £8 ) for the YEAR. So HP have now caused us to seek economies by wasting power, evidence for future proof of their global irresponsibility. Class action groups please note. HP please get your house in order this month, by going green you may actually increase sales ! Ted
