I have turned it on and off and have searched for anything put of the ordinary in my printer but it keeps on saying i should follow the animated help and instructions but they directons make absolutely no sense at all.

Okay i used to have the same problem, but all you have to do is this:
1.  Plug in HP PSC 2110xi All-in-One to the computer 2.  Turn the printer on 3.  Unplug the power chord from the printer (don't turn it off before you do this) 4.  Wait at least 45 seconds (and actually wait 45 seconds, don't guess) 5.  Plug the printer power chord back into the outlet 6.  If the printer does not automatically turn on, turn it on 7.  When it asks you to align cartridges, press enter, and follow the directions
This time it should work :]

Cartridge alignment


Put a teeny tiny bit of oil (3 in one on fingertip) all over the slide (chrome bar that you see looking into the printer from the front) and retry. Just a thin film, NOT enough to drip.

The self test and align 'scan and print' procedure is timing out.

Align page message


I have an OfficeJet 5780 and I have to do the alignment also. The allignment page it prints should have instructions on it. Just put it in the scanner and press "Enter". It needs to scan it to align the print heads.

This is from the manual on their website:

The HP Officejet prompts you to align cartridges every time you install or
replace a print cartridge. Aligning the cartridges ensures high-quality output.
To align the print cartridges when prompted:
1 Press Enter on the front panel.
An align cartridges (test pattern) page prints.
2 Load the align cartridges page face down in the ADF between the paperwidth
guides and press the Enter button again.
3 Recycle or discard the page.

This issue occurs if the alignment page is not perfectly or with good colors. Replace the low ink cartridge. If the ink levels are good do the following steps to clean cartridges :

1. Turn the unit on and open the lid or top cover.
2. Remove the cartridges.
3. Using a clean, dry lint-free cloth (a coffee filter works well),
wipe the cartridge contacts, from the top to the bottom. The contact
area of the cartridge should be rubbed briskly to remove the waxy
lubricant material from the gold contacts.
4. The contacts inside the printer may also require cleaning. Using a
clean, dry, lint-free cloth, 5. gently wipe the contacts, from the
top to the bottom.
5. Re-insert the cartridges and close the printer's top cover.

Steps to manually align cartridges
----------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Press Setup until Maintenance appears, and then press Enter.
2. Press until Align Cartridge appears, and then press Enter. Two pages are printed, one with instructions and one with patterns.
3. Follow the instructions on the instruction page, then place the page with patterns on the glass and press Enter. The cartridges are aligned correctly.

If the issue persists do the below to by pass alignment :
-----------------------------------------------------
Press Setup and Options (or Copy Options) simultaneously when align message is prompted on the All-in-One.
