My HP PSC 1315 printer/scanner prints the test page every time I turn it on. A 2008 post from littlebluemuffi helped until now, but today it still printed the test pages.


Hi,

This usually happens if the printer is not aligned properly. When you replace the cartridges, it prints a colorful sheet of paper. You need to place the paper face down on scanner glass and press OK button.

This completes alignment and the printer wont print test page again.

Hi, Wonder can you help my printer keeps printing off test page everytime it is turned on. this is only happening since i changed the cartridge, never did this before. thanks


Hi,

Your printer is printing alignment pages, because the cartridge alignment was not completed since you replaced them. Follow the below steps to complete alignment.

  1. Turn the printer OFF and then turn back ON.
  2. Wait until the alignment sheet prints out fully.
  3. Place the alignment test page over the scanner glass.
  4. Press start color scan button.
  5. The printer "power" light will start flashing, indication the alignment process.
  6. After the printer stops flashing, turn off and then ON the printer.It will not print any test pages further.
We need to run alignment test every-time while we replace ink cartridges.

Button sequence for head test (to look for banding)


Turn the printer off.
Load a sheet of white laser paper.
Press and hold the "Power" & "Ready/FF" buttons at the same time.
Release the "Power" button, and keep pressing the Ready/FF" button.
Right after you release the "Power" button, count 4 seconds, and release the Ready/FF" button.
Immediately, press and release the "Ready/FF" button one last time.
The printer should start printing a series of letters, numbers, horizontal lines and a black solid bar at the bottom of the sheet.
Once this test page is completed, turn the printer off to stop the test.

Will not print test page or documents


  • Make sure the printer is turned off and the paper-release lever is pushed back to the single-sheet position. Raise the paper guide upright.
  • While holding down the LF/FF button, turn on the printer. The PAUSE light flashes.
  • Slide the left edge guide until it locks in place at the guide mark. Next, adjust the right edge guide to match the width of your paper.
  • Slide a sheet of paper down firmly between the edge guides until it meets resistance. The printer loads the sheet automatically.
  • Press the PAUSE button. The printer begins printing the self test.
  • To stop printing temporarily, press the PAUSE button.
  • To end the self test, make sure the printer is not printing. Press LF/FF to eject the sheet; then turn off the printer.

MY test page always prints


Hi,

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

Cannot restore the settings of printer like the tear of on the keybord... what did do to restore the settings of this printer... i cannot print  the print out is a symbol . same on the printest on the...


Hi,

To do a Default Setting Mode to an Epson LX300+, you need to:
1. Power OFF the printer (for at least 10 seconds or more);
2. Press Tear Off button while simultaneously powering ON;
3. Release button, maintain power ON, printer will print basic/default settings.

At most times, it is the parallel/printer cable that gets dislodged. loosely connected or perhaps would even require replacement.

Should you want to do a printer self-test on an Epson LX300+:
Printer's Self-Test - The built-in self test function demonstrates that the printer is working properly. You can run the test with either continuous paper or single sheets; this describes the easier way, with single sheets.

* Make sure the printer is turned off and the paper-release lever is pushed back to the single-sheet position. Raise the paper guide upright.
* While holding down the LF/FF button, turn on the printer. The PAUSE light flashes.
* Slide the left edge guide until it locks in place at the guide mark. Next, adjust the right edge guide to match the width of your paper.
* Slide a sheet of paper down firmly between the edge guides until it meets resistance. The printer loads the sheet automatically.
* Press the PAUSE button. The printer begins printing the self test.
* To stop printing temporarily, press the PAUSE button.
* To end the self test, make sure the printer is not printing. Press LF/FF to eject the sheet; then turn off the printer.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Good luck and kind regards.
