    way to align-------

    From the front panel (Macintosh and Windows)
    Press MENU or SETUP (depending on the model).
    Press the right ARROW repeatedly until the display window reads Maintenance.
    Press ENTER.
    Press the right ARROW repeatedly until the display window reads Align Print Cartridges.
    Press ENTER. The unit will begin the alignment process and the display window will read Printing Alignment Page
    Verify that the alignment was successful after the page is complete.
    From the Director screen (Windows and HP Officejet all-in-one product only)
    Open the Director Screen in one of the following ways:
    From the desktop, double-click the HP all-in-one product icon.
    Click Start , click Programs , click HP all-in-one folder, and then click HP Director . 
    From the Director Screen, click Settings , and then click Maintenance . 
    Click the Align print cartridges option. A window will appear with information about aligning the print cartridges. 
    Click Align . The unit will begin the alignment process and the display window will read Printing Alignment Page. 
    Check the alignment page when it is completed.
    If all of the alignment tasks have green checkmarks beside them, click OK to close the alignment window. 
    From the HP Toolbox (Windows and HP Officejet all-in-one product only)
    Click Start , click Programs , and then click the HP all-in-one product folder. 
    Click HP Toolbox . 
    From the HP Toolbox Print Services menu, click Align the Print Cartridges . A window will appear with information about aligning the print cartridges. 
    Click Align . The unit will begin the alignment process and the display window will read Printing Alignment Page 
    Check the alignment page when it is completed.
    If all of the alignment tasks have green checkmarks beside them, click OK to close the alignment window. 
    If the alignment fails
    If the alignment process fails, the unit will either display the message Alignment Failed, Please Try Again or it will return to the message, Press Enter to Align Cartridges. The alignment process may also terminate prematurely. 
    Sensor failure 
    Look into the paper output tray of the unit as the alignment page is printing; a blue light should be visible periodically. If this light is not present, the unit will not be able to align and will require service.
    A blank page is ejected immediately 
    If a blank page ejects immediately without the unit attempting to print, the unit will require service. Other errors that may occur are a Paper Mismatch or a Paper too Narrow error message. A damaged paper-type sensor lens causes this error. 
    Ink related failures 
    If a problem exists with the cartridge and ink is not printed on the page, the alignment process will fail. NOTE: Turn on the power to access the ink cartridges. This allows the carriage to move to the center when the access door is opened. Unplug the power cord before proceeding to the cleaning steps below.

    Check the following:
    Verify that the cartridge is not out of ink, including all three colors in the tri-color cartridge. The alignment page should look like Figure 1, including the three bands of color (cyan, magenta and yellow) toward the bottom. Another test is making a color copy of a page with various colors and black. Replace the ink cartridge if either the black or the color cartridges are not printing correctly.
    If this is a new ink cartridge, verify that the blue tape covering the nozzles has been removed. Do not remove the copper flexible circuit with the electrical contact points. If no tape is present, try reinserting the original cartridge and performing the alignment process before trying the new cartridge again.
    If the unit still will not print, remove and reinsert both ink cartridges. Verify that the cartridges are the correct part numbers for this model.WARNING: To avoid the risk of electrical shock or damage to the unit, unplug the power cord before continuing with the cleaning steps below. 

    Clean the ink cartridge. The ink cartridge nozzles may be clogged, or the electrical contacts may have something on them that interferes with the electrical connection. If the ink nozzles are clogged, the print may be faded or have white lines. Use the following steps to clean the ink cartridge:
    Clean the cartridge with a cotton swab or clean cloth slightly dampened with distilled, filtered, or bottled water. Unfiltered water may contain contaminants that can damage the print cartridges.
    Clean the areas on either side of the nozzle plate (Figure 2, call-out 2).
    Only clean the nozzle plate (Figure 2, call-out 1) as a last resort to recover the cartridge. Place the damp cotton swab on the very bottom of the ink cartridge over the nozzle plate (the shiny rectangle). Remove any ink or dirt from the bottom of the ink cartridge. Do not touch the nozzle plate with anything other than the cotton swab.
    Clean the electrical contacts on the ink cartridge (Figure 2, call-out 3) with a soft clean cloth lightly dampened with distilled, filtered, or bottled water. The ink cartridge ships with a protective coating on the contacts that may need to be removed to restore proper operation.
    Inside the HP all-in-one product, clean the contact points inside the print carriage (the cartridge holder) with a soft clean cloth lightly dampened with distilled, filtered, or bottled water. Allow them to dry for at least five minutes before reinserting the cartridge(s) to avoid damaging the HP product.
    Figure 2: Cleaning the cartridge 

    1- The nozzle plate 
    2- Areas to be cleaned to remove ink or dirt 
    3- Cartridge electrical contacts 
    The ink cartridge may be defective; replace the ink cartridge.
    If the issue is still unresolved, replace the ink cartridge that was not previously replaced and try again.
    The problem still exists after try all the troubleshooting steps 
    If the print alignment continues to fail, there may be a problem with the unit. This may occur after inserting the wrong ink cartridge. Contact HP technical support for additional assistance.

My epson t13 printer doesnt go printing cannot detect the cartridge what should i do?


To rectify this error with your printer, first of all, you need to snap the cartridge in and out a few times. If this doesn't work, you need to remove the printer cartridge from the printer and then clean off the foil contacts. You need to be careful while doing this and do not wipe the nozzles from where the ink comes out. Insert the cartridge and switch on the printer. Now your problem might be fixed. If this does not work, it is better to inform the manufacturer or contact online technical support experts.

I just loaded new HP 94 and HP 97 ink cartridges in my HP 6210 Officejet. I went through the alignment process and received a sheet that had colors, but no black ink. The printout indicated the alignment...


Make sure all the protective tape on the Black cartridge has been removed. Also are the inks re-filled? I have seen many re-filled cartridges fail in a similar maner.

New Brother MFC 885CW - fails to print in black - even with new cartridge.


Have you tried to align the print cartridge? Also, try cleaning the nozzle, both using the Brother diagnostics utilities that should have come with the printer. If all else fails it may be the print carriage that's broken.

Have just unpacked new HP Photosmart C4200 All-in-One Cannot get machine to accept cartidges which werre supplied with the printer


NOTE: The product must be on before you can insert the print cartridges.
  1. Open the print cartridge door. Figure 7: Opening the print cartridge door c00880893.jpg
  2. Make sure the print carriage moves to the right. If it does not move to the right, turn the device off, then turn it back on again.
  3. Open the packaging and remove the tape from both cartridges. Figure 8: Removing the tape c00880894.jpg CAUTION: Do not touch the copper-colored contacts or re-tape the cartridges.
  4. Hold the cartridges with the HP logo on top.
  5. Insert tri-color cartridge in the left cartridge slot and the black cartridge in the right cartridge slot . Figure 9: Inserting the print cartridges c00880895.jpgc00880896.jpg
  6. Push the cartridge firmly into the slot until it snaps into place.
  7. Close the print cartridge door.
Step eight: Align the print cartridges When a new print cartridge is installed, the product aligns the cartridge. Align the print cartridges at any other time by using the software installed with the product. Aligning the print cartridges ensures high-quality output. NOTE: If a print cartridge is removed and reinserted, the product will not prompt for an alignment. The product memory retains the alignment values for that print cartridge. Follow these steps to align newly installed print cartridges.
  1. When prompted, make sure that plain, white letter or A4 paper is loaded in the input tray, and then press the button next to OK . The alignment page prints.
  2. Lift the lid. Place the top of the alignment page face-down on the front, right corner of the scanner glass. Figure 10: Placing the alignment page c00880898.jpg
  3. Close the lid.
  4. Press the button next to OK . When the On button stops flashing, the alignment is complete and the page can be removed.

Change ink cartridge


go to start>control panel> printers and faxes>preferences>services> ( This is how I bet to services on my own HP.) There may be another route for you. At any rate you need to get to the services tab to figure out wihich cartridge is low, if you don't know. When you do know, just open the lid of your printer while it has power and the cartridges will move to the position where you can remove them. Just gently lift out the old cartridge, peel off the protect tape on the new one, being careful not to touch the copper contact area, and insert it in the slot.DO not leave the new cartridge standing out of the pacage more than thirty minutes. It should slip right in and you will know that it is snug and in place.. If your printer does not then automatically print an calibration page within a few minutes, you should do so, from the same area where you checked your cartridges above. Good luck. This aligns the new cartridges and guarantees a good color print.

  5. Click Send.
In Outlook Express:
  1. Click Create Mail to open a New Message window.

Trying start my computer it says bootmgr missing pressctrl alt del. still wont work


your windows config has been coppupted. Insert ops system disk and reboot, select repair. This will only apply with genuine ops system disks. If this fails, do the same above again, only this time select new installation - downside is it will wipe your drive and you will loose all data.
