Press enter to align cartridge

I have the hp psc 950 printer. I just changed cartridges and get "press enter to align cartridge" message. No matter how many times I press enter,and the printer aligns the cartridge, I get the same message over and over again even after opening and reinserting the cartridges, unpluging the unit, and cleaning the cartridges. The printer will not do anything but give the same message. HELP

    I have had this printer for several years and changing cartridges has been a breeze, but now after replacing new cartridge it ask to realign but only prints a blank paper. Now it says I have a paper mismatch--I have used the same paper for years.....



    I can print from Word but printer will not copy and print or print the alignment page.

Cartridges won't align


The HP printer can perform an print cartridge cleaning procedure even after the alignment message has displayed. Follow these steps to perform an print cartridge cleaning procedure at the front panel:
1.On the front panel, press the Menu or Setup button (depending on the model).
1.Press the right arrow button (>) until Maintenance or Tools is displayed, and then press the OK or Enter button (depending on the model).
1.The Clean Print Cartridges message should display on the front panel. Press Enter or OK to begin the cartridge cleaning process.
A page will be printed during the cleaning process with all of the colors on it. If any of the colors (including black) are missing, faded, or streaked on the alignment page, there is a ink cartridge problem.
If you go to HP website you can find more detailed information about alignment. Here is the link.

You may be doing everything right except the very last thing.

After replacing the cartridges, your product display will ask to do a cartridge alignment. Press ENTER on the control panel to align the print cartridges.

You must allow your printer to finish this procedure.

Message on my printer says (press entre to align


You need to blot the cartridges on a paper towel and make sure all the colors are showing, It won't complete the alignment until it can see all the colors on the alignment sheet. Sometimes you need to blot on a damp paper towel to get them flowing.

My hp psc2175 is keep asking "press enter to align cartridges", even though I did many times and it printed many time. I don't know what to do with it.


Read the manual. Or check online. Often when it wants you to align the cartridges, it then wants to scan the page that just printed.
