Question about Printers & Copiers

4 Answers

I have a hp psc 1315 scanner. Each time I start it up, it insists on carrying out a test print. Also, it often locks when I try to print out a scan, and the printer control on my PC indicates that it's trying to print a second page of two, even though I've only got one page to print. Deleting this attempted print is always a lengthy business! Help, please!!

Hi djdale

Use the settings from the HP software that you will find on the right hand side of your task bar. If you don't setup the printer from here, it will do weird things. I have experienced this myself, seems to be some conflict between windows settings and the HP settings. I found once I had setup the colour settings and so forth in the HP software, everything went smoothly.

The test print is actually an alignment page. After the page finishes it should be loaded on the scanner bed, close the lid and press the scan button. Once the alignment completes successfully it will not be requested again until a cartridge is replaced.

For the print problem, does the printer actaully try to print an additional page, or is it just the driver indicating that it is printing another page? When printing graphics the Windows spooler may indicate multiple pages being printed for a single physical page.

Uninstall the printer software. Restart your computer after. When it turns back on, reinstall the printer software using the cd installer it came with.

The printer 1310, won't scan after installation


First the printer is hp psc 1315 not 1310, my mistake.
I think the problem arose because of the order in which I was installing the cartridge. Instead of waiting for the printer to print out the test sheet, I was placing a test sheet, of which I have a number of copies, in the printer immediately after installing the colour cartridge and then pressing 'scan'. Nothing seemed to happen. I then tried waiting for the printer to produce a test sheet. This took a surprisingly long time. However after placing the test sheet which the printer had just produced in the printer and then pressing 'scan', the scanning operation was completed successfully. Problem was probably caused by my not reading instructions carefully. Roland Bishop

My hp c3150 prints a test page every time i turn it on


Do this. The next time it prints a test page, keep the same test page under the scanner and push the scan button on the c3150. This would complete the test cycle and it would not print test pages from the next time.

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.

HP PSC 1315, scanner and Mac os


To scan documents on Mac OS X using your HP PSC 1315, you need to download HP's "Device Manager" software which is available here : http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=mp-41992-1&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=374572&os=219&lang=en

I just installed the software and am now scanning problem-free.

Test printing


If you've recently changed your cartridges, the printer will try to print a test/alignment page. Note the instructions on the test page indicate what to do to complete the testing/alignment procedure.

1) Let it print.
2) Place the test page upside down on the scan plate.
3) Hit "Scan" and let it finish.

When the machine completes the scanning procedure, you'll be able to switch the printer on and off or reboot your computer without it printing the test page. By Dubbya

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
