Printer prints test page each time printer is turned on

So far the only problem I have is the printer prints a test page each and every time I turn it on. The printer was working fine and then just started doing this. Am not sure why or what made it start doing this. Is there a fix or do I have to reinstall all software? thanks for your help Danny

I had this exact same problem, except my printer is a HP PSC 1315v. I did as was suggested (also just like it says on the printed test page), scanned the test page and it SOLVED my problem. THANKS!!

There may be something initialised to print a test page everytime it starts, just remove printer, uninstall driver and re start. Re install drivers and connect printer when prompted or when installation has finished. This should revert to default settings.

Dmcpherson2's suggestion is correct. This drove me absolutely crazy - I must have printed hundreds of test pages before I actually READ the test page directions, which illustrated to scan the test page once. Problem solved, except it still prints a test page every time a cartridge is replaced (which is often). I believe HP simply wants consumers to waste more ink for quicker 'turn'.

I had this same problem. I think sandrew's solution is nonsense. tomj23 suggested something which worked: If you look at the printed test page, it actually has instructions for what to do. Align it on the right side of the scanner window, and hit the Scan button. (I actually had to turn off my printer, turn it on again which printed another sheet, and then do this. I don't know why.) You won't have to do this every time you turn on printer, but I think you will have to do this every time you install new print cartridges.

HP PSC 1315 Prints test page every time printer is installed


Hi Jay,
This is mike, actually the problem is that that printer has not completed the aligning process, as a result the printer is printing the test page (Alignment page) every time when you turn it ON. So, I would suggest you to let the printer prints the alignment page and check whether the printer prints the page with all colors and it printed fine, once it is done, disconnect the USB cable behind the printer and then place the alignment page on the scanner glass by facing down the printed page downwards and press the scan button. This start the alignment process and the scanning process will be completed once the ON light is stop blinking. This will complete the alignment process.

Once done try to turn off and turn on the printer and check for the result. This should resolve the issue.

However, if the issue persist, then please revert back to me. Be sure that you use the HP genuine ink cartridges, not refilled nor re-manufacture.

My printer keeps printing the test page every time it's switched on


Unplug the printer and leave it for three minutes and then plug it back in. This will reboot it and it may cure the problem.

Printer prints a test page every time I turn it on


This means your printer needs alignment. Take that test (alignment) page. Place it face down in the scanner. Press the scanner button. This will stop that page being printed every time.

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.

Slow Printing


Hi, The slow printing issue can occure even if the cartridges are out or low in ink try to check the print function by the stand alone unit by printing a self test page Here are the steps to print a self test page: On the front panel of the product, press Menu (or Setup) . Press the Right Arrow until Print Reports displays, and then press Enter, Start, or OK . Press the Right Arrow until Self-Test Report displays, and then press Enter, Start, or OK . If the self test page takes less time to print and if all the color blocks and black block print fine the ink level are fine. if the time for self test is also more try to clean the cartridge contacts and replace the cartridges if needed this will fix the issue. If the printer works fine as stand alone self test and copy try to performe the steps in the below webpage: ========== http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00093466&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=2512010&rule=10185&lang=en ========== If the issue is still un fixed try to set the print directly settings in the printer properties Click on start >> control panel >> printer and faxes >> there look for the HP printer icon with the check mark and right click on it and select properties and then click on advance tab and under it select the print directly to printer and click on apply and ok to save the settings. Once done try to print and check with the issue. Hope this will fix the issue. Regards, Barret.

My printer keeps printing the test page every time it's switched on


I had the same problem and it was driving me crazy until I did this. Please follow exactly and IN ORDER.

1. Turn off the printer and wait 10 seconds. Turn it on again

2. Let the printer print the test page.

3. After the test page is printed, disconnect the USB cable connecting the printer to your computer. DO NOT turn off the printer while disconnecting the USB cable.

4. Place the test page on the scanner glass and press the SCAN button on the printer. The ON light will flash as the page is being scanned.

5. Remove the test page when the ON light is steady.

6. Finally, turn off the printer and wait another 10 seconds. Then turn it on again. No more printing test pages! Yay!

(You may now reconnect the printer to your computer via the USB cable.)
