I had the same exact problem.  My printer would simply say, failed to print constantly, unless I turned my pritner off and then back on, but then it would only print me a test sheet and nothing else.  This started happening right when I got a new ink cartridge.
The problem: While I was putting in my new ink cartridge, I accidentally pulled my printer back too far, and it was unplugged.  
Solution: Make sure your printer is plugged into the computer.  I know it is a simple mistake, but you are having the same problem, this is the solution.

HP Photosmart C3100 printer is printing very slow.


Check 'properties' when printing and make sure that you are not printing at the highest quality color if you are not printing pictures.

Photosmart 2610 prints doc'sPC but not from IE


I wonder if Internet Explorer is corrupt or there could be a virus, adware, or spyware messing things up.

Try scanning the computer for viruses and pups and see if that fixes it.

The only other thing that you could try is to reinstall Internet Explorer but I would scan it first.

HP Photosmart C3100 series


I just got off the HP help line.  After changing my black ink cartridge a test page was printing each time I turned the machine on.  This is very costly, in both time and ink as the cartridges themselves for this machine hold very little ink.  I tried to learn from HP tech how to turn off the test-print while keeping my color cartridge empty.  It turns out that you cant do it.  HP requires you to keep buying and using cartridges whether you need them or not.If you buy the color ink it will use it up in its testings.  And if you dont buy the color cartridge it will use up your black ink by printing the test each time you turn on the printer.  The printer was inexpensive sure, but I'm paying for it in wasted ink.
