HP photosmart C4200 - alignment disable

I've run into this problem. The first simple thing to look at is the aligment page itself. Does it have colors on it or is it strictly greyscale/black and white? If your color cartridge is empty/a knockoff/not installed correctly, the printer will just print the alignment page in black/white and not necessarily notify you of a problem. However, the cartridges won't align if the aligment page isn't printed in color.

This is clearly a screw-up by HP, because there is nothing to notify you of this problem in the software or manual. The printer will automatically print an aligment page, and then tell you to scan it. If they did it right there would be some error message notifying the user that it couldn't print an aligment page rather than print one that is worse than useless.

I've changed the print cartridges for both color and black on a C4200 printer scanner. Now I'm getting a carriage jam message, when there doesn't seem to be anything jammed in the carriage. Help.

check whether the cartridges are installed properly or they seem to be loose.also apply a waxy material on the steal rod of the printer on which the carriage make it move frequently and fluently.
