Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
My HP PSC 1315 prints the test page every time I switch it on. The only way to stop it is to press Cancel every time right after switching on the printer. It used to be fine and only print the test page on demand, but after the ink was changed it does it every time. I have a HP 1500 and I am having the same problem. I tried the solutions suggested by others without success. I am wondering if it's because I bought a compatible cartridge, i.e. not a genuine HP one.

Take the test page ( also called : alighnment page ) that always prints when you switch on the printer and place it face down in the scanner.
Then press the scan button on the printer itself.
(this is the button at the bottom of all the buttons on the printer/scanner.)
Make sure that the printer scans the test page.
( sometimes you press the butoon and it doesn't scan )
( it makes a scanning noise when scanning succesfully )
Then it will stop printing the test page ( alignment page ) ever again.
This is a really stupid product feature on HP's part to waste ink and force people to buy more cartriges.

The Solution Provided from Hp PSC1513 is that the Printed alignment page (like test print page) face down on the scanner and press the "start Scan" button the printer scans and complets the alignment process. But In my case after that it again prints the alignment page... I think it is stupid feture, without asking to print the page every time and wasting lots of Ink.

I had this problem on few HP printers at last I have decided to thrash the HP printers and have changed the brands Lexmark and Samsung. This may not be a good solution how ever I have been happy ever after :)

Joshua777 Has the answer to the HP printed alignment pages. It works and thank you.Even though the url takes us back to HP it is a pPity that HP does not have the brains to include this with the printers or cartridges they sell.

The simple answer to this as stated many times here before. I have a HP PSC 1500v. Mine was doing the same thing for a few weeks, then I went back to realize that when you set the computer to align(which you can find in the control panel under printers then find yours and click on properties, then tool box, then click on align)Then you print a test page, then place it face down in the scanner, then wait about 10 seconds, then press scan. When the power light has stopped flashing, you have completed the process, and you shouldn't have any more unwanted test pages.
