Question about HP PSC 1210 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Hello, everytime I print something my printer prints a test page or two. What's up with that?
I am assuming you have Windows XP here. This quite often happens when you haven't aligned the cartridges. To do so go to
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.
