Alignment Error My printer prints fine but it prints blurry and distorted and every time I try to align it I get an error saying that It cannot automatically align itself. I have tried cleaning the cartridges, removing them and reinserting them. Is there anything I can do to fix this problem?

Re: Alignment Error

Yup I did the same, bought a Lexmark X3470 so I could plug my digital camera cards into it as well, cheaper ink, doesn't last as long but still a wayy better printer, I never needed the fax machine to begin with anyway and was getting tired of "feeding" pictures through to scan, wasn't great on pictures.

Re: Alignment Error

Well, got tired of it so, i trashed it-replaced it with a lexmark X3470, so far no problems, cheaper ink... great printer :) Plus it has a real scanner not one that feeds through

I have changed all ink cartridges on my canon pixma ip4200 printer and it now doesn't work, the green and amber lights flash for 11 times and the cartridge carrier doesn't move. Please can someone advice...

From Canon Help Files.

Automatic Print Head alignment failed
Possible causes are as follows:
6128_image_6.gif A4 or Letter-sized paper is not loaded on the Auto Sheet Feeder.
Press the RESUME/CANCEL button on the printer to clear the error, then load one sheet of A4 or Letter-sized paper in the Auto Sheet Feeder.
Automatic print head alignment cannot be performed using paper from the Cassette. For automatic print head alignment, always load paper in the Auto Sheet Feeder.

6128_image_6.gif Print Head nozzles are clogged.
Press the RESUME/CANCEL button on the printer to clear the error, and then print out the nozzle check pattern to examine the print head condition.

For information on how to print a nozzle check pattern, see "Printing the Nozzle Check Pattern."

6128_image_6.gif The Paper Output Slot has been exposed to a strong light source preventing correct Print Head alignment.
Press the RESUME/CANCEL button to clear the error and move the printer to a darker location.
After carrying out the above measures, if the problem continues after aligning the Print Head again, press the RESUME/CANCEL button to clear the error, and then perform manual print head alignment. For details on manual print head alignment, see "Manual Print Head Alignment."

I kept getting service error 5200 when I tried printing something. How do I fix this problem?

Hi there

Service error code 5200 is the print head error. Rub the print head into a plain paper with rubbing alcohol until ink flows and then after that remove all the USB cable connection and power cord and plug it again. Then run the print head cleaning maintenance like print nozzle or print alignment.

It should be fine right now. Please let me know if you need more help

My HP officejet 6110 all-in-one will not print. It keeps saying to align cartriges which i've done several times.

If you do a test print and any color is missing it won't pass alignment and keep giving the error. If you're happy with the printing, when it says press enter to align, press and hold the enter button and press the menu button. The error will go away and let you print.

Your problem could be because of bad alignment. That means paper alignment and printer alignment don't match. There will be instructions in,your manual to properply align your printer.

Lexmark x4270 Alignment Problem

When you say you checked to see if anything is obstructing the cartridge, please also make sure the clear tape/tab on the cartridge head was completely removed before use.
If you put another head in, does it work? Sometimes the cartridges are bad, if they have been exposed to extreme temperatures.
A fragment of the protection tab would explain the error as well as the printout, as you don't seem to have any yellow at all.
Hope this helps.
