I am assuming you have Windows XP here. This quite often happens when you haven't aligned the cartridges. To do so go to
1. Start.
2. Settings (or Control Panel if you don't have settings).
3. Printers & Faxes.
4. Right click on HP PSC1210 (or whatever your machine is called)
5. Click on Properties.
6. Click Printing Preferences.
7. Click on the Services tab (top right).
8. Click on the big button with icon beside Service This Device.
9. Click the icon beside Align the print cartridges.
10. Finally, follow the process described. You will probably have a page print out which you then need to scan (make sure you scan it the right way).

After aligning is complete you will hopefully not get any more test pages (until you change the cartridges again that is).

Of course there may be another issue. If this doesn't fix the problem let me know and we can go from there.

How do i switch of align page when installing a new cartridge as it waste paper printing a test page everytime you switch it on. This is for a HP 1300 series


http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SupportTaskIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=238320&taskId=110

Click on the 'Automatically check to see if your driver needs updating (MS Windows Only).' box in order to check for latest updates to your driver.

Unfortunately, I looked over the unexpected page output and it didn't list this problem as one of them.

Does it really print a test page every time you switch it on? Or does it only print a test page after installing a new cartridge?

Definitely, the alignment page should be printed everytime a new cartridge is installed due to variations in manufacturing of print cartridges will throw off the alignment everytime a new cartridge is installed.

I'm not sure about the test page, though.

Good luck on this modification of standard operating of hp printers.

Canon bjc-3000 is not printing


Has the software for the printer been installed in your computer? Sorry if this sounds like a silly question, but I did the same thing, and it turned out I hadn't installed the software yet so it didn't recognize the printer.

PRINTING BLANK SHEETS


You need to put the test page that was printed into the scanner part of the printer and then press the scan/blue button. This is so the printer can calibrate the new ink. When you have done that the next time you turn on the printer a blank page will not be printed. When you next change ink you will have to repeat the above procedure.

Printer prints test page each time printer is turned on


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.
