Sure..you'll need to re install the software, and then register the printer when asked.

Every time we turn on the printer, it prints a test sheet. how can we stop this? it's a waste of paper and ink.


Not knowing what printer or O/S you have, try this:

Open START, Control Panel, Printers.
Select the printer that needs tweaking.
It should open a pop-up screen for that printer.
Click PRINTER from top left and select "Printing Preferences" or "Properties" from the list.
Somewhere in there each manufacturer has availability to turn on or off many features of your printer, including cover page and start-up test.

This is also where you can change your default to print in grey-scale or low-mode which is also a great ink saver. MOST of what we print doesn't need to be in color or anything beyond ReadAble! When you want to print photos or special documents, it's simple to click back to color mode.
HOPE this helps ... Meezer

E4 = No ink
E5-5 = The ink cartridges are not installed or a non-supported ink cartridge is installed, or the ink cartridges are not installed properly
E8 = Waste ink absorber full, or platen waste ink absorber full
E9 = The connected digital camera / video camera does not support Camera Direct Printing
E14 = The Ink cartridges whose destination are wrong

Turning printer on


Thats because the Alignment was not completed sucessfully.

Remove both the ink cartridges from the All-In-One unplug the power cord from the Printer and also from the wall outlet.
Leave it unplugged for at least about 1Min time.
Now insert the ink cartridges back to the All-In-One and reconnect the power cord to the wall outlet and Al-In-One
And after it prints the alignmamnt page make sure to align the page as per the instructions either in the computer or in the All-In-One.

For futher reference check the link bellow:

Test paper


Can only think that if the printer has a menu screen there may be an option to turn off that function. If it is only happening when you use it within office software...that the option is there to switch off the function......more often than not that is the case.

MY test page always prints


Hi,

I belive that after replacing the INk cartridges, you are experiancing this problem. The Alignment test sheet always prints everytime you turn on the printer, if u haven't completed the Alignment process.

To complete the Alignment process,
>>Once the printer finished printing the Alignmnet test sheet.
>> Place the Test sheet staright on the scanner glass facing down towards right hand corner.
>>Press the scan button(color), the Power ON light will start flashing, wait until it stops flashing.
>>Alignmnet process completed.


Thank You
