Question about Lexmark X2470 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Test and scanning the alignment page

I have installed my new x2470 printer and driver on my HP Pavillion with Vista OS. Every time I try to print in any program, it prompts me to print an alignment page to scan. I have done this 25 times. The test page prints perfectly with both the blue and black inks. THe problem is in the scanning. No matter which way I place the page or where on the glass, it always comes up with an error. I have tryed cleaning the glass...shutting off the printer and restarting my computer and it doesn't fix the problem. I cannot print without this alignment being done and it keeps printing the test page and wasting my ink. Is there any way to bypass this alignment step?

How do you stop a test page from printing every time the printer is turned on?


Welcome to FixYa!

Here's how to stop the unwanted print out of test pages.

1. Let the printer print the test page.
2. Place the printed test page in the scanner face down and wait for 10 seconds.
3. Press the scan button of the printer to scan the printed test page.
Make sure that the printer scanned the document properly.

That's it. Every time you install a new cartridge, the printer aligns the print cartridge as well as testing/aligning the scanner.

Note: Try to look at the top of the test page, it should have instructions to place it in the scanner.

I hope that this will help.
Thank you for using FixYa.

I get an alignment failure on my HP C4280 every time. Now I get a huge black band on my paper when I scan and copy. Printing works fine


Have you uninstalled the software and re-installed it?? OR download latest software from HP's site and uninstall old software / re-install new. If you have changed OS to Vista then download / install Vista driver.

Alignment page prints every time printer is turned on. HP1315 on Windows Vista Home Premium.


Take the test page ( also called : alighnment page ) that always prints when you switch on the printer and place it face down in the scanner.

Then press the scan button on the printer itself.
(this is the button at the bottom of all the buttons on the printer/scanner.)

Make sure that the printer scans the test page.
( sometimes you press the butoon and it doesn't scan )
( it makes a scanning noise when scanning succesfully )


Then it will stop printing the test page ( alignment page ) ever again.

HP PSC 1315 Prints test page every time printer is installed


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 have experienced this before...
Disconnect the printer and remove the installed drivers, that is to remove the virus-infected file or a corrupt printer driver.

Now re-install the printer and the driver.

This is a really stupid product feature on HP's part to waste ink and force people to buy more cartriges.
