Question about HP PSC 2110 Color Printer

Scanner bar jammed by cartridge allignment

When I installed new print cartridges I was prompted to align print cartridges. The printer printed out instructions and a pattern page. I placed the pattern page on the scanner glass and pressed "enter." The printer viewer said the printer was alligning, however the scanner bar under the glass seems stuck and emits a loud clicking noise. How can I correct this problem?

Scanner failure align the cartridge

To Align the new ink cartridge

The HP All-in-One prompts for an alignment of the cartridges every time a print cartridge is installed or replaced. Follow these steps to align the print cartridges from the control panel.
  1. Load unused, plain, white letter, A4, or legal paper into the input tray. note.png
    NOTE:If colored paper is loaded in the input tray when the print cartridges are aligned, the alignment will fail. Load unused, plain, white paper into the input tray, and then try the alignment again.
  2. Press Setup.
  3. Press 6 to select Tools.
  4. Press 2 to select Align Print Cartridge.
    The unit prints a print cartridge alignment sheet.
  5. Load the alignment sheet print-side down and top first in the center of the document feeder tray, and then press OK.

I have a hp photosmart 3210 all-in-one and it keeps printing the same thing over and over as soon as you turn it on

It can happen due to different causes:
If the cartridges are new, the automatic alignment process is not complete, for that:
1.Turn off the printer and turn it on again
2.Let the printer print the allignment page
3.After printing the alignment page, disconnect the USB cable which is connected behind the printer
4.Place the allignment sheet inside the scanner glass and press the scan button on the printer
The alignment is complete when the printed page is scanned
Turn off the printer and turn it on again, it should be fixed

The other possible causes might be:
The cartridges are not correctly installed or one of the cartridges is defective.
In that case reinstall the cartridges after cleaning them with lint free soft cloth.

If that does not work, then at least one of the cartridges need to be replaced

Hi. I cant get my printer to allign. I've just replaced the black ink cartridge and when i put the allignment page inside the scanner it wont scan

Did you try to align the unit manually or with the computer?

Alignment page does not print

1 Make sure you remove the sticker and transparent tape from both print


2 Make sure the color print cartridge is secure in the left carrier and the black

print cartridge is secure in the right carrier.
3 Make sure you loaded the paper correctly and did not force the paper into
the printer.

Aligning your print cartridges without a computer

Make sure you follow the steps on the Setup sheet to complete hardware

installation. Continue with the following steps to optimize print quality.

1 Make sure you have loaded paper into the paper support, and then press

and hold Scan for three seconds. For help, see "Using the control panel"

on page 4.

An alignment page prints.

2 Place the printed alignment page onto the scanner glass.

3 Press Scan. For help, see "Using the control panel" on page 4.

Once scanning is complete, your print cartridges are aligned for optimal
print quality.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response.

Thanks, Joe

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 will show allignment failed as the particular colour is missing in your allignment sheet which is required to get the allignment complete.

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.
