Hi Monica,

You should have replaced new ink cartridges recently and since from that the printer must be printing Alignment test sheet. It means that you have not completed the alignment test.

Please follow below step to complete the test

  1. Turn the printer OFF and then ON, allow the printer to print the test page.
  2. Place the test page correctly on the scanner flatbed and press the scan button.
  3. Now the printer ON light will start blinking.
  4. Wait until the power light stops flashing.
  5. Now the test is complete and test the printer again by powering off and on.
Regards
Riztech

12/640 PS wont feed from tray


I found the owners manual for your model, and it has detailed explanations of how to turn off the printing of the Startup page: This is where the owners manual is available online in .pdf format, at this URL: http://download.info.apple.com/Apple_Support_Area/Manuals/printers/0340211ALW12640UM.PDF Startup Page Info From your Owners Manual: (Yes, I've been reading the Manual for your printer. I have no life. :P ) From page 25 of the manual: "The printer takes a minute or two to warm up, and then it automatically prints a startup page. It prints the startup page every time you restart unless you turn the startup page off using either the Apple Printer Utility for the Mac OS or the Apple LaserWriter Utility for Windows. See Appendix A for details on these utilities." From page 249 of the manual: "Appendix A - Setting the Printer Default Settings" "Though the printer itself has no control panel, you can configure it by using programs on computers connected to the printer: - On Mac OS?based computers, use the Apple Printer Utility and the desktop printer?s setup function." So the answer is YES, you CAN setup the printer to not print the test page, but you have to use the setup utility on your computer to do so. Opening the Apple Printer Utility (From page 251) "The Apple Printer Utility has two windows: the Printer Selector window, which is similar to the Chooser, and the printer features window, which you use to view or change the printer?s settings." 1. Double-click the Apple Printer Utility. - The Installer puts the Apple Printer Utility in the Apple LaserWriter Software folder. You can move it wherever you like. 2. In the Printer Selector window, select and open the printer you want. - If the network has zones, click the zone where the printer is located. - Click the name of the printer you want. 3. Click Open Printer. - The printer feature window appears with the Printer Information category displayed. 4. To view or change settings under a category, click the arrow beside the category name to open the category and display its information and options. - Additional options may appear that you can also open and work with. When you are finished changing options in a particular category, you can click the arrow again to collapse the options. (NOTE: The option you want is "Startup Page".) 5. After viewing the information and making changes, click the Send button to send your changes to the printer. 6. Click the Close box to close the window. Turning the startup page on or off (From page 257) "The LaserWriter 12/640 PS normally prints a sample page when you turn the printer on. This page shows the printer?s name, the total number of pages printed, the amount of memory, installed options, and communication settings. You can turn this feature off if you wish. 1. Open the Startup Page category. - The Startup Page panel appears. 2. Click the checkbox to turn the startup page on or off. - When an X appears in the checkbox, the printer is set to print the startup page. 3. Click Send to send the startup page setting to the printer. That should remove the default printing of your startup page. HOWEVER, there is another possibility to affect a repair to your problem... As the paper-feed rollers get older, the rubber on the rollers gets slick and won't grip the paper anymore. Try buffing the rubber rollers with some fine sandpaper and see if that allows the machine to pick the paper up once again. If this is your problem, then you might make the lower-feed paper tray work again. Hope this helps, but let us know if you need more information to solve this problem. ;)

My HP 3100 series always prints a test page on startup. How do I make it stop???


Hi,
there is a similar problem described on this site.
Try here:
http://www.fixya.com/support/t317689-hp_photosmart_c3100_series

I also found this on the internet which apparently works:

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.)

Regards,
Steve

Every time I rurn my computer & f2180 printer on it prints a scan page. how can I stop this. I have uninstalled the printer and reinstalled it but still it prints a scan page. can anyone help


is this a test page or is it scanning? When you installed the unit did you follow all the steps because some all in ones won't rest until they have done all the 9 yards.
Check you printer default settings. Got to control panel>printers>properties for the printer you have installed. It may have an option for the printer to print the test page on startup

Test Page


Go to the printer settings through the software given by HP, probably HP solution centre and choose printer settings and further you can go deep to disable the test page at startup.

Test page


Brivron, The printer will continue to print the test page at startup until it thinks the cartridge alignment process has completed correctly. Running through the process on this HP support page should take care of the problem. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00473778&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=428800&dlc=en&lang=en Let us know if you have any more questions and please don?t forget to rate this posting.
