I had this exact problem after replacing the Black Ink cartrdige.
Tried many things but nothing worked.
Eventually found the instructions below on a differnt forum and now the problem is resolved.

Hope it helps you guys

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
qoute:

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
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
of course I had to get the scanner working first as that was an other issue I was having

Can only think that if the printer has a menu screen there may be an option to turn off that function. If it is only happening when you use it within office software...that the option is there to switch off the function......more often than not that is the case.

SOURCE: 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.

Question re: test page


i have this printer, what you have to do is when you power it up, wait and listen until the printer grabs the paper to do the test print, then quickly press the CANCEL button once, the paper will pass through the printer but not print, then just put the paper back in the feed tray and start your day with a smile. The cancel button is on the left hand side underneath the power button. The printer prints a test page when you change ink cartridge as well by the way.

After turning on printer, prints initial "blank" sheet


You can fix this by turning off bidirectional support:

- Right click your printer, select properties
- go to the ports tab, uncheck Enable bidirectional support.

Your printer has to be turned on before printing.

That fixed the extra page printing S1M problem for me.

My printer needs to have the waste ink reset how do I do this


You can try this....
  1. Turn off Canon S300, S400, S9000 Printers
  2. Hold down Resume button and press Power button.
  3. Keep holding down Power button and let Resume button go.
  4. Press Resume button 2 times then let BOTH buttons go.
  5. Green lights will flash and then stop blinking.
  6. When green lights are solid, press the Resume button 4 times.
  7. Press the Power button and the printer should turn off, if not, press the Power button once more.
  8. Your Canon S300, S400, S9000 Printers should respond as normal.
But this happens because the waste tank is full. You need to locate it and use a paper towel to absorb the waste ink. Whenever the printer cleans itself ( when a new cartridge is installed, for example) some ink is cycled into this chamber. So if you reset and it is full, overflow may occur.....

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!

Noisy operation and black marks on left side of printed paper


vacuum out the waste toner passages that lead from the drum and transfer belt to the waste toner container. Toner is building up inside the transfer belt and/or drum and has no place to go except onto your paper.

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...


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.
