I would suggest a test page, too
If it is printed normally then check the connection plugs.
On a network: make sure the right IP for the printer is set, you have the possibility to check that via browser, adress is http://PrinterIPAdress, e.g. http://192.168.178.20
Third option: a wrong printer is chosen in print menu

CM 1015mfp Colors are not aligned. when printing the characters looks like 3D.


If nothing else works, you may have to manually calibrate the dials inside the mirror box. This video link will show you how. http://youtu.be/R1DIko0a1MA
This may be necessary if the printer got bumped really hard.

Color printed pages are too light.


  • Troubleshooting Setup and Install If your device is not recognized:
    • Verify that your cable is USB 2.0 high-speed compliant.
    • Ensure that your cable is connected correctly. Remove the USB cable, look at the end of the cable, and then match it to the pattern on the USB port. Make sure that it is not upside down. Insert one end of the USB cable completely into the USB port on the HP device and the other end into the back of the computer.
    • Check that the peripheral is turned on. Peripherals will not be recognized if the power is off.
    • Ensure that your USB cable is no more than 15 feet or 5 meters in length.
    • Check that the USB port is enabled. Some computers ship with disabled USB ports.

Constantly flashes printing document biut no document printing


You need to isolate the problem to either your PC, application software, interface, or printer.

I would start by unpluging the printer data cable and rebooting it.
Then print the Configuration page from the printers <Information> menu.

If this is OK, then the problem lies at the PC end....

Make sure you printer queue is clear, then print the Windows test page from in the Printer Driver window.

Only prints in black. Windows 7 driver update


Print a 'Configuration Page' from the printers <Information Menu>

Press the green tick button to enter the menus, and use the <, > arrows to scroll thru menus.
Then press the green tick button to select...

If, as I suspect, your Configuration Page is in colour, and looking ok - the the problem is in your computer - Printer Driver setup, or Windows......
Like all the others

Have fun.
