Turning off the tester on my printer

Hi,

I do not know how to stop my printer from doing an automatic test every time I switch my printer on, it is HP, it is so annoying as it is using an awful lot of ink every time it does this. I would really appreciate any helpwith this. I have tried to do it myself, but I am very limited regarding the necessary procedures with both computers and printers!! My email address is j.burger@hotmail.com

Many thanks

I have the same problem, and I haven't figured out how to stop the page from starting to print, but I immediately press the "cancel" button when the paper is drawn into the printer, so the printer will kick out the page before it applies any ink to the paper. Pressing the "cancel" button clears the printer, so it's ready to print what I want to print.

you need to have both cartridges installed, working, with ink. are you refilling cartridges? i do that too but after a while it needs replacement. one of the drawbacks of a cheap printer

Winshield wiper delay intermitent module making noises


The wiper delay is in the steering column. It's a small box about 2 x 2 inches with a wiring harness attached. With the testing procedures I found below, you should be able to figure it out. I found wiper delays on eBay for around $10 to $20. Good luck.

WINDSHIELD WIPERS CHEROKEE, COMANCHE & WAGONEER 1. POWER INPUT Remove circuit breaker. Test battery side of circuit breaker. If battery voltage is not present, repair open to splice. Test across circuit breaker terminals. Tester reading should be zero (0) ohms. If not, replace circuit breaker. 2. GROUND Connector A unplugged. Test terminal G. Tester reading should be zero (0) ohms. If not, repair open to ground. 3. INTERMITTENT WIPERS Ignition switch in ACCY. Remove delay module and plug connectors together from the module. If wiper operate in LO and HI speed modes and mist (washer) is working, if wipers and mist operate, replace intermittent module. If not go to step 4. 4. WIPER/WASHER SWITCH Ignition in RUN, wiper switch position as indicated, back probe switch side of connector A for standard, connector B for intermittent: Test connector terminal E-wiper switch in LO and mist/intermittent. If battery voltage is not present, replace switch. test connector terminal C-wiper switch in HI. If battery voltage is not present, replace switch. Test connector terminal F-wiper switch to OFF. If battery voltage is present until wipers stop and then voltage drops to zero (0), system is working fine. If this does not occur, replace switch. 5. INTERMITTENT WIPERS Connector B unplug. Test across terminal A and D while rotating switch from minimum to maximum delay. If tester reading is not between 0-500 ohms, replace switch. Test across terminal A and G while rotating switch from minimum delay to maximum delay. If tester reading is between 0 and 500 ohms, replace wiper module. If not replace switch. 6. WIPER MOTOR Ignition in ACCY, wiper switch position as indicated, probe connector D. Test connector terminal 1. If resistance is no zero (0) ohms,repair open to ground. Test connector terminal 4-wiper switch in any position. If battery voltage is present, replace motor. if is not repair open from fuse panel. Test connector terminal 2-wiper switch in LO. If battery voltage is present, replace motor. If not , repair open from wiper switch. Test connector terminal 2-wiper switch in HI. If battery voltage is present, replace motor. If not , repair open from wiper switch. Test connector terminal 5-wiper switch OFF with voltmeter connected. If battery voltage is present until wipers stop and then voltage drops to zero, system is OK, replace motor. If not, repair open from wiper switch.

Need a replacement, where do I get one?


If I understand correctly you have a 3-speed fan.
And you need a 3-speed replacement pull-chain-type switch

Lowes carries 3 speed fan switches in the light fixture department.
These switches have multiple wires.
At any given time, there is one-and-only-one wire that connects to power from wall switch.
Lets call this the Power wire.
As you pull the chain, the power passes through the switch and goes to one-and-only-one of the other wires.
The other wires connect to windings in the motor.
The different motor windings control fan speed.

The key to replacing the switch is recording where each wire went before you disconnect old switch.
Once you know which of these wires is the Power wire, then you can test other wires with a continuity tester.
You also know the pull-chain sequence is OFF - HIGH - Medium - Low
Mark wires in fan and mark wires on old switch.
Pull out old switch.
Use regular electrical tester to find which wire in the fan is the power wire (separate wires, turn on power and test each wire to metal part of fan)
Now test the switch wires.
The switch is out of the fan.
You marked the wires so you know which wire is power wire.
Put the continuity tester on the power wire.
Test power wire to each of the other wires.
Click the switch and test to each of the other wires. Mark which wire lights up continuity tester.
Click the switch and test again. Mark which wire lights up continuity tester.
Click again, until each wire is marked in the sequence.
When you click the switch and no wire lights up, then that is the Switch OFF position.
Do the same test on the new pull-chain switch.
Connect the wires to match your testing.

Hi I have a 691 and want to outlet on all the time and the switch to control a light. Your diagram show black wires on one side and the white wires on the other side. Shouldn't a black wire be on one of...


If your switch is wired internally so the switch automatically controls the plug, then there is not a way to re-wire the insides of that device.

Look at the screws on your device.
If switch automatically controls the plug, there are probably gold-colored screws on one side of device and silver-colored screws on other side of device.
The blacks connect to gold, the whites to silver

If this is how your device looks, then the switch cannot control a light, so buy a device that looks like the one described next:

If the plug and switch can be wired separately, then the screws are different colors
1) On one side are dark-colored screws. The Hot wire from breaker box always connects to dark-colored screw.
2) On the other side of the device are 1 gold-colored screw and 1 silver-colored screw
- The white wire connects to silver screw and this will complete the circuit to the plug
- The wire going to your Load (light, fan motor) connects to gold-colored screw, and this will let the switch control power to the Load

You can buy a simple continuity tester and check your wiring devices before purchase:
257de8a.jpg
Continuity tester is used when power is turned off.
It has a battery
When you youch alligator clip to the tester point on end of tester, a light comes on.
When light comes on, that tells you the circuit is complete
For testing switches and plugs, you touch the pointer on one screw terminal, you touch the clip to another screw terminal ... then flip the switch on the electrical device to see which screw terminals cause the tester light to come on
If light comes on, then the circuit has 'continuity'
Continuity tester can be used on all sorts of small electrical devices, including troubleshooting electric water heater >>> and that's a fun project for next week.

How would you know high limit thermostat is defective. need to know before ordering part


Hi, you'll need a ohm tester (multi-tester) you will have to remove / disconnect wires from hi-limit, in normal room temperature, place tester lead on terminals where you remove wires, if you get a beep/continuity, hi-limit is o/k, if no beep/continuity, hi-limit faulty, for further test you can heat up hi-limit, (oven) and check with tester, hi-limit switch off when temperature gets to high, and switch on when temperature drops, so at room temperature hi-limit should be on, (hear beep on tester), if there's no beep/continuity at room temperature, high-limit is faulty. disconnect power before doing any repairs, good luck.

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!

Printer prints a test page every time it is turned on.


Hi everyone

After replacing the print cartridges 2 steps need to be done:

1. Wait for the test page to be printed out and

2. Put a page over the scanner glass and press scan button on your

printer.

Turn off the printer and turn it on again to see if the problem was

solved.

Test page


Try shutting down your PC and printer. Next,unplug PC from wall outlet. Next, unplug printer USB cable from the PC, then unplug the USB cable from the printer. Unplug the printer from the wall outlet. Wait 30 seconds. Next, plug PC back into outlet, turn it on, and wait until it has completely initialized and is ready to use. Next, plug in the USB cable from the printer to the PC, and turn on the printer. Windows should automatically detect the printer, and will proceed to install it. After the PC finishes the install, test the printer in all modes, including self-cleaning, to see if the problem is eliminated.

In starting 1 page print


Hi,

I believe that after changing the ink cartridge you havent completed the alignment process.This Alignment test page will print everytime you turn the printer ON.To Complete the alignment follow my steps.

1.After turning the printer ON, wait untill the printer prints the Alignment test page.

2.Then place the alignment test paper on the scanner, facing down in a correct position.

3.Then press the Scan button(color) and wait untill the printer ON light stops flashing.

4.After the light stops flashing, take the paper out and the alignment process is completed.

Turn OFF and turn On the printer, it will not print the Test page again.try it and please let me know.Would really appreciate your rating for my solution.

Thanks
Riz.
