Try holding down the setup button, then hitting the options button at the same time. It seemed to clear out this error message for me (I also read this on another site after having the same problem.)

Every time i try to copy the screen says "press enter to align cartriges


Have you carried out a head alignment procedure, I would carry that out again
the online user manual is available from this link http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/manualCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=79499&lang=en&
The HP PSC 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. A page of patterns is printed. The cartridges are aligned correctly. Recycle or discard the page.
To align the cartridges at any other time:
  1. Press Setup.
  2. Press 5, then press 2.
  3. This selects Maintenance, and then selects Align Print Cartridges.
  4. A page of patterns is printed. The cartridges are aligned correctly.
  5. Recycle or discard the page.

My HP 950xi is stuck on "Press enter to align cartridges." How do I delete or bypass this message on my printer?


Have you already solved your problem? There are at least three posts about the same problem and the PSC 950.
If you solved your problem, please comment, saying how you did it, so that you can help others.
If you didn´t solve it, check this HP FAQ:
Solving Print Cartridge Alignment Problems
Note that it says (in the end) that you can bypass the alignment page and use the information from the last successful alignment in your printer, by pressing and holding the Enter button, and then pressing Setup .
I offered this same suggestion to other posters: one replied it didn't solve his/her problem; the other, let know it did.
It might work for you. Please try and give some feedback (even if it is not positive).

My hp psc2175 is keep asking "press enter to align cartridges", even though I did many times and it printed many time. I don't know what to do with it.


Read the manual. Or check online. Often when it wants you to align the cartridges, it then wants to scan the page that just printed.

Printer hp 2210 always says Press Enter to Align Cartridges. When I press enter it aligns and than says the same thing. When I try to print it won't print from the email or when I'm on line. When I press...


You press Enter , but the error message does not go away ? You have to bypass the cartridge alignment -
  1. Press and hold the Setup button.
  2. Press the Options button. The printer should be ready to print.

HP psc2175 remove and check cartridge


The ink cartridges are probably dried up inside.

I would try replacing them before tossing the printer.

Buy GENUINE HP carts.

2175 printer


This is a typical error with the 2175 / 2100 series.
1.) Error comes up if ink in cartridge's ink level gets too low.
2.) The ink cartridge's copper contacts are dirty. Dirt you can't see. Clean contacts with alcohol & cotton swab's (not dripping).
3.) The carridge contact's need cleaning. (Same as above).
4.) The cartridge, (even though new, can be defective).
5.) You are using a "refill kit" of some kind to refill ink cartridge's.
6.) After 1-5, re-set the printer. Power off printer wait a minute & power back on.
