Okay, just chatted online with an HP tech, and she helped me solve the problem!
She said: the printer prints an alignment page everytime you turn on due to incomplete initialization process.
Turn off the printer and Turn on.
Please unplug the usbcable.
Hope this helps!

I had the same problem. I hadn't used the printer in a long time and it took a few minutes to figure out what I did. This may not be your problem, but there are two sliders on the main tray. The first goes left to right and the second goes front to back. If you've use normal 4x6 paper you put the paper in and push the slider forward to lock in the paper so it prints straight. The problem is if you run out of paper and haven't used the printer in a long time, you may try to slide the paper in just like you would a normal printer. But for it to work, you have to pull the front-to-back slider back, and make sure the paper is forward of that slider. If you've pushed it way forward after trying to shove your paper in, you may have to find something to pull it back out again, because your fingers might not be able to get in that far.

This error comes due to carriage jam. Turn off the printer and unplug it from wall socket. Now, remove the cartridges and check for any dried up ink residue on cartridges on inside the carriage. Clean the cartridges contacts and carriage using a Q-tip dipped i alcohol. Let the carriage and cartridges dry before you plug in the printer.
Install the cartridges and check. If it still shows error then unplug the power cord coming to the printer without switching it off. Now, remove the rear door of the printer and check for any paper jams over there, remove if any. Wit for at least 15 seconds and plug in the power cord. Now check whether it is working.

Testimonial: "Thank you very much for the information. very helpful. I am sure this information will help other people as well. Thanks again. "
Unplug the power from the printer.
Press the # key and the 6 at the same time and hold them down
connect the power while continuing to hold down these keys
wait for a message about a semi-nvm reset or something like that to appear on the screen, and then release the buttons. If the unit shuts down while you are pressing the buttons, release them, and press power just long enough to turn the unit on.
If the printer does not react normally after this, post a reply here.
