Re: alignment

I've seen this happen with clogged heads as well. If even one color of the color cartridge does not print, it will mess up the alignment page. I'd say take a damp paper towel, wipe the print head off. That the area on the cartridge where ink comes out. after wiping, do a "foot print" test. Gently but firmly, lol press the print head into the damp paper towel. You should see a blue yellow and red foot print. They should be about the size of the print head itself. Do this for the black as well. IF you don't see good foot prints, then take them to your local cartridge world and get them replaced!

Re: alignment

Have you tried turning it off and unplugging it. Sometimes that simple trick works wonders.

Why does my printer keep saying to align cartridges when in fact i have already done that.

You should clean the printer head, several times. Then try insert cartidges again, and again.

Photosmart 3210 - A Printer alignment failed error

Mine has done the same thing.

To fix this you have to reinstall the software, then reboot your computer.

I did that, and the printer alignment function worked fine for a while, then I started getting the same problem again, possibly after I had installed other software not related to the printer -- I don't really know.

In any event, it's doing the same thing again, so I just "cancel" the alignment and continue to use the printer. My prints are fine.

Align cartridge issue

With this printer, we find, if the scanner mirror is dirty, it will not align. You will need to take the scanner glass out and clean glass and mirrors.

NOTE: If the fix doesn't work, you don't find answers to fix it and are going to get rid of it, please contact me, I would consider purchasing it from you.

Good Luck,

Print Alignment Page continues to fail

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Alignment after new cartridge

Hi I think that you will need to clean the gold dots on the printer carriage or if not done so remove the blue tape from the cartridge or if you are trying to use refills install some originals as this may help.

Hope this helps'
