5900 test page after each print

Hi Hp,

 

I'd like to ask what causes our 5900 printer to print a page with blue black squares  and blue lines (I presume it's a test page) after every single job ? This  must have sthg to do with the catriges we've just changed.

 

I did the procedure with holding down the power button, clicking cancel button twice, and also same procedure with 'resume button' pressed twice or nine times as well, but still no luck.

 

Any hints?

 

thanks!

Hello kielbasa2,

 

Welcome to the HP Support Forum.

 

After reading your post I see that your HP 5900 will print an Alignment page after every printed page. This usually happens when the alignment has failed or the printer thinks it fails.

 

I would be happy to help you with this but I need you to provide the Model of Printer because when i look for 5900 no printers come up.

 

Thanks,

Hi Jeretrends,

 

It seems that's the 5940 model.

Hello,

 

I would like you to follow "Issue: One or both of the Print Cartridge status lights blink" section of this HP document: Blinking Lights. The steps listed will have you checking the cartridges, cleaning them and having the printer start and complete an Alignment.

 

Let me know how this works for you.
