How do you stop a test page from printing every time the printer is turned on?


Welcome to FixYa!

Here's how to stop the unwanted print out of test pages.

1. Let the printer print the test page.
2. Place the printed test page in the scanner face down and wait for 10 seconds.
3. Press the scan button of the printer to scan the printed test page.
Make sure that the printer scanned the document properly.

That's it. Every time you install a new cartridge, the printer aligns the print cartridge as well as testing/aligning the scanner.

Note: Try to look at the top of the test page, it should have instructions to place it in the scanner.

I hope that this will help.
Thank you for using FixYa.

Won't print. Screen keeps saying to press Enter to align cartridges but nothing happens


It is 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.

Have a nice day and do not forget to rate please...!

Printer problem for a dell 924 printer


I have run across several Dell & Lexmark printers that after a while of working great, decide to have an "issue"... If you are printing more than 1 page, they will print the first page, then stop. The computer says "Cartridge Stall" and the printer says "Hardware Error 0502" or something similar, depending on the printer... Anyway, the message on the computer suggests making sure your cartridges are installed correctly, and nothing is blocking their path... After dealing with this many times, I have finally found a solution that seems to work!

There is usually a metal bar that the cartridges slide back and forth on... over time, this bar can become "gunked up"... Use alcohol pads to clean up the bar, and the surrounding area.... Clean out as much of the track as you can also. Tada... .No more cartridge stall!!

My HP PSC 1401 printer always prints the test page everytime I switch the printer and put it back on. How can I stop this?


Take the test page ( also called : alighnment page ) that always prints when you switch on the printer and place it face down in the scanner.

Then press the scan button on the printer itself.
(this is the button at the bottom of all the buttons on the printer/scanner.)

Make sure that the printer scans the test page.
( sometimes you press the butoon and it doesn't scan )
( it makes a scanning noise when scanning succesfully )

Wont print


Friend,

Please print an internal test page. If this only will produce a blank page as well, replace the toner/ink cartridges/print heads.

HP psc 1315v (printer, scanner, copier) Will not print


The test page printing out every time it gets turned on is the printer's way of telling you it wants to be calibrated. Lay the test page on the scanner (follow the pictures on the test page) and scan it in. This should fix that problem and the "occasionally after waiting, something prints" problem.

Unfortunately, I don't have an answer to the "E" on the display or check printer cartridge light. Hope this helps!

Cartridge stalled


You need to clean the rollers in the back panel of the printer.

Unplug the printer while it is powered on and remove the back panel. Get a damp cloth (not too wet) and wipe off the rubber rollers in the printer as well as on the panel. Replace the panel and open the front where you load the cartridges in. Move them back and forth from side to side and make sure nothing is blocking them from moving. Plug printer back in. It should come on by itself and initialize.

Print a page from your computer. It should now only feed a single sheet at a time without causing a carriage or paper jam.

Not responding to PC instructions to print data


Hi,

You need to load the PRINTED ALIGNMENT PAGE on the scanner glass, then press on "OK" button. It should start scanning the alignment page. That way, you are completing the PROCESS of ALIGNMENT.

Thank you so much.
