How to print test page hp envy 6000?

Printing a test page on an HP Envy 6000 series printer can help you verify the printer’s functionality and the quality of the print output. Here’s how to print a test page directly from the printer, without needing to connect to a computer:

Using the HP Smart App

The easiest way to print a test page for most users is through the HP Smart app, which is available for both Windows and macOS, as well as iOS and Android devices. This method requires your printer to be connected to the same network as your computer or mobile device.

  1. Download and Install the HP Smart App:
    • For mobile devices, download it from the App Store (iOS) or Google Play Store (Android).
    • For Windows or macOS, download it from the HP website or your respective app store.
  2. Set Up Your Printer in the HP Smart App:
    • Open the app and follow the instructions to add your HP Envy 6000 printer. This usually involves selecting ‘+ Add Printer’ and following the on-screen prompts.
  3. Print a Test Page:
    • Once your printer is added, look for a maintenance or printer health section within the app.
    • Select the option to print a ‘Printer Status Report’, ‘Diagnostic Page’, or similar. The exact wording may vary, but such a report functions as a test page, showing ink levels, printer status, and more.

From the Printer Control Panel

The HP Envy 6000 series printers are designed with simplicity in mind and may not have a built-in display or extensive control panel options to print a test page directly without using the HP Smart app or software. In such cases, the HP Smart app is the best method to print a test page or diagnostic report.

Using Printer Software on a Computer

If you have your HP printer installed on a Windows PC or Mac, you can also print a test page using the printer properties or settings.

On Windows:

  1. Open Control Panel and go to ‘Devices and Printers’ or ‘Printers & scanners’.
  2. Right-click on your HP Envy 6000 printer and select ‘Printer properties’.
  3. Look for a ‘Print Test Page’ button on the General tab or under ‘Maintenance’/’Tools’ tabs.

On macOS:

  1. Open System Preferences and go to ‘Printers & Scanners’.
  2. Select your HP Envy 6000 printer and click on ‘Options & Supplies’.
  3. Under the Utility tab, you may find an option to ‘Print Test Page’ or ‘Open Printer Utility’ where you can find similar options.


If your printer is new or you’ve recently changed the ink cartridges, it’s a good idea to use the HP Smart app or printer software to align the printer after printing the test page. This ensures optimal print quality.
