Question about HP Printers & Copiers

I have C4200 All-in-One printer. I installed a new color catridge. I printed align sheet, put it on glass, clicked color button. But when I try to make a copy, all I get is another alignment sheet.

    There is a OK button. It says use it, but nothing happens. I push on that OK button very hard.

The alignment procedure is usually required after replacing an ink cartridge and you haven't yet completed or paid attention to the instructions it provides to fully complete it. Once completed it will return to normal operation.

Feeder.
2. Hold down the RESUME/CANCEL button until the POWER lamp flashes four
times.

hello, machine will need to finish calibration so it will not come back, so if machine failes it could be that the color cartridge is not printing, because this machine uses yellow to calibrate with.

HP 6000 Won't print with yellow cartridge


Try this :

Take out the power cable from the back of the printer keep on tapping the power button for 30 secs ; then plug it back.
Take out the catridges clean them with a Lint free cloth (copper contacts); also clean the catridge slot of the printer; put in back the catridges ;
Unplug the power cable from the back of the printer; press and hol down the (#) and the (6) button simultaneously with one hand and with the other hand put in back the power cable; and then release the (#) and (6) button;
It will perform a reset on the printer
IF still then it doesn't work then the catridge slot's copper contacts has gone bad and need to replace

Tops and bottoms of letters are cut off. I have changed the ink cartridge


Replace the old ink cartridge.
Verify that the unit is on. The On button is lit when the unit is on. If the device is not on, press the button to turn on the unit. Open the print cartridge door. The print carriage moves to the far right side of the unit. Wait until the print carriage is idle and silent, and then lightly press down on a print cartridge to release it. When replacing the tri-color print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the left. When replacing the black or photo print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the right. Pull the print cartridge toward you and out of its slot. If the print cartridge is being removed because it is low or out of ink, recycle the print cartridge. Remove the new print cartridge from its packaging. Remove the plastic tape by using the pink pull tab. Removing the Tape from the catridge.
  1. Will have Copper-colored contacts.
  2. Plastic tape with pink pull tab ( must be removed before installing ).
  3. Ink nozzles under tape
  4. 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.
  5. Top & Bottom not printing properly.
  6. Load unused, plain, white letter, A4, or legal paper into the input tray
  7. If coloured paper is loaded in the Input tray when the print catridges are aligned, the alignment will fail. Load unused, plain white paper into the input tray when the Printer catridges are aligned, the alignment will fail. Load and unused plain white paper into the Input Tray and then try the alignment again.
    1. Press 6 to select Tools .
    2. Press 2 to select Align Print Cartridge The unit prints a print cartridge alignment sheet.
    3. Load the alignment sheet print-side down and top first in the center of the document feeder tray, and then press OK. Now the printer will print properly.

Black ink not printing or very light or split. Have installed new ink cartridges. Getting some color and headings or seals. But mostly Blank!


HI

Usually when you install new cartridges,the printer print an alignment sheet.
in case if the printer isn't printing the colors okay,
you can try cleaning the cartridges by going to the printer drivers,
goto the control panel--->printers and faxes--->rt click the printer icon and goto properties,under properties there should be an option for either maintenance or service this device button,when you click it ,it gives an option for aligning the cartridges,
you can also goto the printing preferences and it allows you to adjust the color
there is an option to clean ink cartridges

i have the same problem. i think mine centers around the fact that i refuse to spend the money to buy a color cartridge. i believe the alignment sheet must be in full color.
i did find a very strange solution to preventing the alignment page from printing, but i haven't tried it yet. http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Printer-All-in-One-Software-and/Alignment-Page-HP-PSC1315-prints-every-time-printer-is-turned-on/m-p/224243

Are you sure that there is not an "OK" button and you don't push the actual screen? I am guessing you have to find an "OK" button. I don't think that machine has a touch screen interface. I hope this helps.
