This usually happens if the printer is not aligned properly. When you replace the cartridges, it prints a colorful sheet of paper. You need to place the paper face down on scanner glass and press OK button.
This completes alignment and the printer wont print test page again.
I know your problem and i want to know that have you changed or refill your cartridge?.
place one plain paper in the tray.
it will print the test paper
print it and place it on the scanner with the printed side down.
press the scan button from the printer
printer will blink the light for some time and stop blinking
now it didn't print test print every time you print
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.
I believe that after changing the ink cartridge you havent completed the alignment process.This Alignment test page will print everytime you turn the printer ON.To Complete the alignment follow my steps.
1.After turning the printer ON, wait untill the printer prints the Alignment test page.
2.Then place the alignment test paper on the scanner, facing down in a correct position.
3.Then press the Scan button(color) and wait untill the printer ON light stops flashing.
4.After the light stops flashing, take the paper out and the alignment process is completed.
Turn OFF and turn On the printer, it will not print the Test page again.try it and please let me know.Would really appreciate your rating for my solution.
There may be something initialised to print a test page everytime it starts, just remove printer, uninstall driver and re start.
Re install drivers and connect printer when prompted or when installation has finished.
This should revert to default settings.
