Try this:

1) do a printer self test...it varies from model to model...but usually hold down the reset or teh ready button when you power the printer.
a) If this works then the problem is not with the printer but with the cable or the computer.
i. Try another cable
ii. re-install the driver
iii. restart the print spooler in services (let me knowif you need isntructions)
b) if it will not successfully print a self test from printer...then your printer needs serviced or trashed depending on value.

Good luck my fiend.

SOURCE: Test Page Prints Everytime Printer Cuts On

this is happen when you install an new catridge or refill one printer is automatically adjust the catridge by alingment so you do one thing when you switch on printer and it will print something just read the instrction and follow them bcoz you need to setup the alingment thing . when the print is come out just place it in to the scanner and just press the scan button the printer will store the setting and next time not print the extra page bcoz the setup is completed.

bye

SOURCE: in starting 1 page print

Hi,

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.

Thanks
Riz.

How do I make a test page for my printer to check color.


You need to clarify :
1. Your printer cannot print color even though it prints color well from a test page;
2. Your printer cannot print color in a test print page.

If it is the first one, then you have to set it properly in Window Print Configuration page of that printer;
If it is the second one, then you have to check whether you have installed the color ink cartridge properly in the printer. If the color ink cartridge is installed properly, try to replace another new color ink cartridge. Finally it is still not work, then you have to bring back to the repair center.

I have a HP PSC 1410 printer Every time I turn it on, it prints a "Test Page". The Check cartridge light is On, but I just had the cartridges filled. "E" shows in the Copies section I am only printing...


I suspect by "Test Page" you may mean alignment page. If the printer senses a problem with black or yellow colors it will continue putting out this page each time you start the printer. Be sure you correctly installed the print cartridges then follow the instructions on the paper to scan it and do a proper alignment. If you have done the alignment chances are something is wrong with your ink. I recommend against getting carts refilled. In the future be sure to use a new name brand ink cart to ensure proper printing. Please consult the following page for detailed diagrams:

If it is truly printing a Windows logo test page I'm sorry for time waste.

I installed new cartridges in my X2550 Lexmark I want to print a test page. It scanned the test page but will not print it. What do I do?


it depends on the error message why the test page won't print. If it just won't print at all, try to reseat the paper into the printer and turn off/on the printer then try to print the test page.

If it doesnt, then turn off the printer, remove cables. And then press and hold the power button on the printer for 5 seconds . Reinsert cables and turn on the printer and print the test page anew....

Printer not working


Hello Kathi1603,
Please try these few things to see if they will get your printer running again. First off, check to make sure your USB cable is properly connected at both the computer end and printer end. If that's OK..then power cycle the printer.. try to print a test page by going to the control panel from your start button and then select Printers and Faxes.. using the right mouse button for your printer, selcet Properties then pick 'print a test page' see if that works.. If that fails, then transfer the USB can;e to another USB port on your computer and retry all the previous things.. When all else fails, restart your computer and see if you can print a test page to your printer.. Hope this helps get you going..
