Hp 56 cartridge prints perfectly but keeps indicating problem


This is a common problem with compatible cartridges where the chip on the cartridge is faulty, missing or is not making contact correctly with the printer cartridge connectors. The first thing to do is make sure that the plastic seal has been removed from the chip and that it is free of any residual adhesive etc. You can clean this with a cotton bud soaked in isopropyl alcohol or VCR tape head cleaner. DO NOT USE SURGICAL SPIRIT or any other cleanser as this will either leave a residue itself or damage the plastics and rubbers in the printer.

Once cleaned reinsert the cartridge and try again. If this is still unsuccessful the best solution is to return the cartridges to the vendor where you bought them and get another brand of cartridges or use genuine original cartridges. When you find a reliable manufacturer of cartridges, stay with them. Don’t forget to clean the print head and realign & recalibrate the printer at every cartridge change for optimum results. Also make sure that you use high quality paper for the best images results.

If you have colour or photo paper loaded in the Main tray when you align the printer, the alignment might fail. Load unused plain white letter or A4 paper into the Main tray, and then try the alignment again. If the alignment fails again, you might have a defective sensor or ink cartridge.

Printer will not align


Print cartridge

When the print cartridge contacts are dirty and the printer cannot detect/communicate with print cartridge.

Clean the contact points on the cartridges with a dry, lint-free cloth.

1. Open the top cover of the printer.

2. Remove the print cartridges.

3. Clean the copper-colored contact points on the cartridges with a damp, lint-free cloth.
Use a dry, lint-free cloth to remove moisture from the contacts.

5. Insert the cartridges back into the printer.

6. Close the top cover.

7. Try printing again.

If you still cant communicate try with new cartridge .

Printer keeps showing : Press enter to align cartridges. After doing this it then prints out an alignment page and shows: Alignment failed please: Press enter Alignment failed. This goes on and on. I have...


I have found that if I put in an old aligned page the printer reads it as and the alignment is accepted. As for the cancelled message being in the window, I have had this problem too. I've ignored it and selected the copy button and it took the command. The only problem with hitting cancel is that you cannot turn off your printer. Every time you do you have to repeat the aligning and cancellation process.

I have a Photosmart C5280 Have changed colour cartridge for the first time Alignment has failed twice Book tells me to contact you Print cartridge alignment failed.


# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
# Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
# Continue doing this until it looks clean.
# Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
# Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.
1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.
# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer.
then try to print if the alignment fails then you need to change the cart in the
printer if its original hp new cart then get replaced .....

Good luck..

Not printing


westenn, if there is no black ink on the alignment page, then your black cart is empty or the nozzles need cleaning. Your printouts will be blank if you're printing text since that would be black and you're out of black ink. Try cleaning it by carefully wiping the nozzles with a cotton ball swabbed in rubbing alcohol, and try cleaning the nozzles through the Solution Center. If that fails, try a new black cart - install it, print alignment and then everything should work.

eshchory - the tech may be wrong. If the accounting prog doesn't send print data to the spooler in a way in which the driver expects, then it's not the driver's fault, but worse it's not likely you can resolve the issue. You can try updating both the app and driver to the latest versions to see if it fixes it, but it isn't likely. Sometimes apps like this just won't work with certain brands of printer. If you were to get another brand of printer and see if it prints from the accounting prog, that might tell you once and for all who's to blame.

OfficeJet K60 All In One Problem:Aligning Cartridges


In the process of alignment there are two phases:

1. When the message comes to align the ink ..press ok and the page is printed out.

2. Once the page is printed then place the page on the scanner glass and tehn scan the same.

Follow these two steps in the same order and it will never give Align Ink Cart message again.
