Question about HP Printers & Copiers

My 1310 prints a test page each time I turn it on. I don't need one. The alignment is very good. I don't want to waste paper if possible. I use hp all in one paper to print from my laptop. How do I stop wasting paper?

Thats not the test page my friend that is the allignment page what you are getting out again n again.you just place that printed side of the paper on the scanner glassand then press the scan button in your printer the-- on --light will blink for sometime and then stops that means the allignment is complete.and it will never come again till you replace that particular cartridges.
it is also given on that page which comes out what to press with proper diagrams also see that for proper idea.do not do any thing in your computer till that period.it should only be done with the printer.

HP 3n1 keeps printing out a


This happens regularly in some models when the alignment of paper is not done correctly. If the cartridge does not have a good print quality, the scanner can not correctly read the alignment and alignment repeated several times until you get it right.
Check the alignment with cartridges in excellent condition.

How do i switch of align page when installing a new cartridge as it waste paper printing a test page everytime you switch it on. This is for a HP 1300 series

Click on the 'Automatically check to see if your driver needs updating (MS Windows Only).' box in order to check for latest updates to your driver.

Unfortunately, I looked over the unexpected page output and it didn't list this problem as one of them.

Does it really print a test page every time you switch it on? Or does it only print a test page after installing a new cartridge?

Definitely, the alignment page should be printed everytime a new cartridge is installed due to variations in manufacturing of print cartridges will throw off the alignment everytime a new cartridge is installed.

I'm not sure about the test page, though.

Good luck on this modification of standard operating of hp printers.

I have a HP PSC 1410 printer Every time I turn it on, it prints a "Test Page". The Check cartridge light is On, but I just had the cartridges filled. "E" shows in the Copies section I am only printing...


I suspect by "Test Page" you may mean alignment page. If the printer senses a problem with black or yellow colors it will continue putting out this page each time you start the printer. Be sure you correctly installed the print cartridges then follow the instructions on the paper to scan it and do a proper alignment. If you have done the alignment chances are something is wrong with your ink. I recommend against getting carts refilled. In the future be sure to use a new name brand ink cart to ensure proper printing. Please consult the following page for detailed diagrams:

If it is truly printing a Windows logo test page I'm sorry for time waste.

Photosmart 5580. How do I turn off the annoying


Because it is a photo printer it knows that the print heads must be aligned for optimum reproduction. You get a new print head with each cart.

For the amount of ink a test page uses I can't see the reason for complaint. If you begrudge the miniscule amount of ink and are not bothered about the best possible printing then just ignore it.

My HP printer PSC 1510 All-in-One no longer asks me to align my ink cartridges after a change of cartridges. Now, after a system recovery, it prints an alignment page every time I turn it on, whereas...


The only way to stop this is to press the cancel button, just as it tries to print the test page.

Various people have said the printer won't align (calibrate) successfully unless both ink cartridges are more than 50% full, and until it aligns successfully, it will continue to print the test page on start-up.

It is a total waste of ink and paper, so remember to hit the cancel button when you turn it on.

Every time I turn on my printer, a Dell 948, it prints a page


Hi
We have 30+ printers... which we use for testing empty inkjet cartridges prior to refilling with ink. Basically we inject a little Magic Inkjet Flush directly into the dried print head which allows us to unclog them. Then we soak them overnight on Magic Pillows which gives just enough to do a PRINT TEST next day.

As some of our printers always try the alignment test here´s what we do...

1. Pull paper stack slightly away from printer, when it tries to print it thinks it is out of paper and should offer a cancel print option.

2. Alternatively if you print daily? Try leaving your printer power on... Some do alignments every time you power up... so dont switch off (they use very little power in standby.)

3. When exchanging inks like HP immediately switch off printer which cancels the print test. Then just switch on again.

4. Reinserting your printed sheets each time will save paper if not ink.

Good Luck!

HP psc1317 printer - wasting paper on power on by printing test paper


If the alignment is not done sucessfully then the printer prints a test page every time the printer is turned on, so it is recommended to align the printer and the cartridge.

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.
