Question about HP PSC 1610 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Allignment of new cartridge takes a very, very long time with garbled message on screen

I replaced a b/w cartridge and the alignment phase took over an hour...so I tried printed one line of script and it took 30 minutes. I unplugged everything, re-replaced the cartridge, still not working. The printers screen messages are all mixed up.
HELP...

My guess is that either the cartridge isn't compatible with the product or there's an issue with the electrical contact between the cartridge and the print carriage. I found a document at HP's web site that addresses both of these issues. After clicking on the following link, review Solutions 3 and 5 to see if either one helps. There's a link on that page after Solution 3 that lets you check the print cartridge compatiblity.

I changed the black ink cartridge as per instructions and the printer printed an alignment paper which i then placed in the printer for alignment but the alignment failed


the page should be absolutely new.and the scanner glass should be absolutely cleaned.and 1 main thing u replaced your black cartridge.but if your colour cartridge is empty it will not accept the allignment complete thing.it will show allignment failed as the particular colour is missing in your allignment sheet which is required to get the allignment complete.

Printer wont load paper


To align the color cartridge, simply try taking the cartridge out, and putting it back ini. Most often on Lexmark printers, this will bring up a message asking if your cartridges are new or old and of what number they are. after this menu you will likely be forwarded to a printing alignment page

Align page message


I have an OfficeJet 5780 and I have to do the alignment also. The allignment page it prints should have instructions on it. Just put it in the scanner and press "Enter". It needs to scan it to align the print heads.

This is from the manual on their website:

The HP Officejet prompts you to align cartridges every time you install or
replace a print cartridge. Aligning the cartridges ensures high-quality output.
To align the print cartridges when prompted:
1 Press Enter on the front panel.
An align cartridges (test pattern) page prints.
2 Load the align cartridges page face down in the ADF between the paperwidth
guides and press the Enter button again.
3 Recycle or discard the page.
