I was given an HP Officejet J3640. I installed the HP21/22 ink cartridges, printed the alignment page, then loaded the alignment sheet in the feeder. After I loaded the alignment sheet, it responds...


Hi

Check if the alignment page has been printed correctly i mean the bars printed with a little yellow color around it right?

Okay what you can do is do a reset first. Follow the below things

1. When the printer is on remove the power directly from the back of the printer.
2. hold # and 9 key and connect the power
3. Printer will show you on the screen it is resetting the NVRAM then release the buttons

The printer will print alignment page again this time try to scan and it should work.

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.

Printer prints a test page every time it is turned on.


Hi everyone

After replacing the print cartridges 2 steps need to be done:

1. Wait for the test page to be printed out and

2. Put a page over the scanner glass and press scan button on your

printer.

Turn off the printer and turn it on again to see if the problem was

solved.

Every time i turn the printer on it prints an alignment page


I think the alignment page is printing every time you turn on the all-in-one.

Remove the USB cable from the all-in-one and keep the alignment page face down on the scanner glass and press scan button.

Now turn off the printer and turn on and check whether it printed again or not.

Keep printing test sheets


A lot of HP printers print a page to enable the print head alignment and calabration. This normally orcurs when a cartridge has been changed. If the alignment page fails then it will reprint alignment page until it can align.

So, you need to get that page it prints and place it on the glass and press scan, then it will complete alignment and be ready to rock.

Okay, just chatted online with an HP tech, and she helped me solve the problem!

She said: the printer prints an alignment page everytime you turn on due to incomplete initialization process.

Turn off the printer and Turn on.
Please unplug the usbcable.

  1. Lift the scanner lid of the product.
  2. Place the top of alignment page face down in the left front corner of the glass.
  3. Place the alignment page face down
  4. Close the scanner lid of the printer.
  5. Press the Scan button.
  6. The On/Resume light will blink during the alignment process.
  7. After the On/Resume light stops blinking, alignment is complete.
  8. Turn off printer and Turn on.
It shouldn't print the alignment page any more! :)
Hope this helps!

Aligning printer after new ink cartridge inserted


SOLUTION: Start the cartridge alignment by performing a series of button presses from the front panel of the product.
  • HP PSC 1200 and 1300 series:
    1. Turn on the HP PSC 1200 or 1300 series product.
    2. Disconnect the USB cable from the all-in-one.
    3. Press the sequence of front panel buttons below to start the print cartridge alignment process. The button-press sequence must be completed within ten seconds. It might take several tries to complete the sequence within ten seconds.
      1. Press and hold Cancel .
      2. While holding Cancel , press On .
      3. When the Check Paper and Check Print Cartridge lights begin to blink simultaneously, release both buttons.
      4. Press Cancel again.
      5. Press Copies .
      6. Press Paper Type .
      7. Press Color Start Copy . The alignment page will begin printing. If the alignment page does not print, repeat the button-press sequence in this step.
    4. When the alignment page has printed, place the page face down on the scanner glass and press Scan . The alignment is complete when the On light stops blinking.
    5. Reconnect the USB cable.
CAUSE: This can occur if the cartridge alignment is canceled or times out without a valid print cartridge alignment stored in memory.

Could be a number of things. I would try looking in printer settings first. Click on your printer, go to properties and check all settings, it may be set to do this or similar. If no go, try uninstalling and reinstalling it, or just turning it off and unplugging, replugging and turn on again can often reset irregulariites. Also try resetting default printer settings too.

My printer keeps printing the test page every time it's switched on


I had the same problem and it was driving me crazy until I did this. Please follow exactly and IN ORDER.

1. Turn off the printer and wait 10 seconds. Turn it on again

2. Let the printer print the test page.

3. After the test page is printed, disconnect the USB cable connecting the printer to your computer. DO NOT turn off the printer while disconnecting the USB cable.

4. Place the test page on the scanner glass and press the SCAN button on the printer. The ON light will flash as the page is being scanned.

5. Remove the test page when the ON light is steady.

6. Finally, turn off the printer and wait another 10 seconds. Then turn it on again. No more printing test pages! Yay!

(You may now reconnect the printer to your computer via the USB cable.)
