    I have a refurbished HP 1510 All-in-One that I purchased over a year ago. I just opened the package last month and seem to be having the same problem as some other owners. The alignment page prints well. I put it onto the glass, close cover, and press SCAN. It scans, the light blinks for a while and it goes off. When I try to copy, I get a full black page. I have removed and put the cartridges back in place. I have even bought a new black cartridge and tried it with the same result. I don't find this problem listed in the manual, and it's very frustrating because of the waste of ink each time I try to copy. I have not installed the printer on a computer yet, as I needed it only as a copier the day I unpackaged it. Now, I don't want to install a printer that doesn't work. I would appreciate any help.

Thank u very much indeed. I took out the cartridges after opening the front door. and reslotted the same int their positions. The printer as usual printed the test page. I put the said printed test page in the top tray of the printer closed the lid and as advised pressed the start scan button on the printer. this started the scan and when the process was done the printer stopped blinking. I switched off the printer and the next session with the printer was trouble free. Dr. bhawnani.

Why does my printer only print half of a page?


Let's start by trying this:
Unplug the printer power cord from the printer and the wall.
Turn off the PC.
Disconnect the USB cable from both ends.
Plug the printer back in and turn it on.
Now, can you print a self-test page from the printer?
Make sure there is unused, plain white paper loaded in the input tray.
On the product control panel, press and hold the Power button and the Cancel (X) button at the same time.
Release both buttons. The diagnostic page prints.
If that does not work, are there any blinking lights on the printer? This document might explain them: Blinking lights.
If the self-test page does print normally, reconnect the USB cable, turn the PC back on and try to print a Windows test page:
Click the Windows icon and then click Control Panel . The Control Panel opens in a new window.
Click Hardware and Sounds .
Click Printers . The Printers folder opens.
Right-click the printer icon in the Printers folder.
Click Properties . The printer Properties window opens.
In the General tab, click Print Test Page . The Windows Printer Test Page prints.
If you have problems printing from Windows, you can try some of the troubleshooting steps in this document:
Printer Prints Blank Paper.
Finally, you may have to uninstall and reinstall the print driver.

Printing very light


Try performing a stop test. Send a test page and turn it off mid print. Retrieve the page from the printer to see if the image is readable before it went through the fuser. If so the the fuser may need to be replaced.

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....

may be you chaged the catridge.
It is not the test page it is alignment test page just put the printed alignment test page paper on scanner glass and press the scan button to complete the process. It is alignment process which is printer is doing for self testing after installing new cartridge. Just finish the process.
Hope this helps. Please rate my response.
Thanks.

Toner Capacity


This does not need to be done. there is a chip/fuse built into the toner that basically tells the printer how many paes that toner has printed in its life time. no adjustment is needed it is all automatic

i assume the cleaning method that you perform is offline (taking the cartridge our and clean them). I suggest you clean the head during the printer on.. try to perform below steps per the manual Cleaning the printer Printing the test pages Cleaning the print head I assume you do not have the manual anymore (no DVD) i list down the step below Its a bit long manual I suggest you download them from the canon website.. if you still have problem I can send to you the BJC 4300 manual Cleanning printer Make sure the printer is turned off before cleaning it. It is a good idea to unplug the AC adapter also. Do not clean the exterior of the printer with volatile liquids such as thinners, benzine, or any spray-type or chemical cleaners; doing so will damage the surface of the printer. When cleaning the printer, avoid the area near the print head on the BJ cartridge. Do not touch the print head. Ink may leak out and cause stains. Clean the printer regularly to avoid printing problems. Remove any ink mist or paper debris from the interior of the printer using a soft cloth moistened with water. Clean especially well around the platen area. If the rollers become dirty, you can clean them using a small soft brush. Clean the exterior of the printer with a soft cloth moistened with water. Clean away smudges and dust. Do not use paper products (such as paper towels or tissues) to clean the inside of the printer. Printing the Test Pages You can print these test pages to check the operation of your printer and your print quality. Test A This test prints a repeating pattern of characters. Demonstration This test prints a sample page describing the printer's features. Printing the Test Page From Windows You use the Test option on the Control tab in your BJC-4300 Printer Driver for Windows to print a self test, demonstration page, or a nozzle test pattern. Before selecting a Test option, make sure paper is properly loaded in the sheet feeder (see Automatically Feeding Paper starting on page 3-7). Click on the Test option and then click on the Print button. Printing the Test Pages Using the Operators Panel To print a test page, make sure the printer is turned off and paper is loaded. Press and hold the POWER button until you hear the number of beeps that correspond to the test page you want to print. Test Page Number of Beeps Pages Printed Demonstration 1 Continuous Printing Status Information 2 1 Page Test A 3 Continuous Printing Nozzle Test 4 1 Page When you release the POWER button, the test page starts to print. *All self-test prints require Letter or A4 size paper. Using a smallersize paper for a self-test print will result in parts of the printoutbeing printed directly on the platen. All self-test prints are printed in accordance with the current printing settings (font, printing mode, etc.) *Red- Information for technician not included in the user manual Cleaning the Print Head Your printer is equipped with a print head cleaning function to ensure constant high quality printing. Cleaning the Print Head From Windows If you are using Windows, you can execute print head cleaning from the Control sheet in the printer driver. Simply click on Clean Ink Head. 4300 Chapter 4 Page 6 Cleaning the Print Head Using the Operators Panel If you want to clean the print head from the operator panel, follow these steps: 1 Make sure the printer is turned on. Make sure the green POWER light is on. 2 Press and hold the RESUME button for at least two seconds until the printer beeps twice. The POWER light will blink for several seconds while the print head is being cleaned. Perform the print head cleaning only when you encounter a print quality problem. Unnecessary and repetitious cleaning will waste ink. If you execute the print head cleaning while paper is manually loaded, the printer will eject the paper and then perform the cleaning. 4300 Chapter 4 Page 7

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.
