Question about HP PSC 2210xi All-In-One InkJet Printer
I replaced the color cartridge, and the printer asked me to press enter to align cartridges. I press enter and it starts printing the page and a few seconds later says printing was cancelled and asks me to press enter to align cartridges again. I have turned it off, disconnected it, cleaned the cartridges and nothing works. Help
SOURCE: align cartridges error
This means one of the cartridges is defective, they cant align if they cant print. What i did to fix this problem is insert 2 working cartridges and get it to align properly, even if they are low on ink, then lift the cover and the cartridges will move to the center. When this happens pull the power cable out, then insert the full non functioning cartridge. Plug the power cable back in. I tried this with a color cartridge, the color cartridge was non functioning but i was able to print in black.
Basically you align the cartridges and then swap them so the printer thinks they are still aligned.
The color still doesnt work and it is probably a defective color cartridge.

In my experience, usually alignment is canceled because one (or both) of the cartridges is not printing properly, and needs to be cleaned.
Hopefully, your alignment page will have printed something before it got canceled. Look at it and see whether the print is in color or black -- then clean whichever cartridge is NOT printing. (Search for "how to clean HP/Compaq/Brother etc. cartridge" for details of the right way to do it for your particular printer. What often works, though, is to take a Q-tip, moisten it with hot water, and gently rub the print head. You can escalate from there to immersing print head in boiling water, using water/alcohol, using an ultrasonic cleaner, etc.)
After you've cleaned the cartridge, the printer may say "remove and check cartridge." Sometimes, all you have to do is take it out and put it in again.
