Align your cartridges to solve print quality problems such as: • Characters are not properly formed or are not aligned at the left margin. • Vertical, straight lines are wavy. 1 Load paper in the paper support. 2 On the control panel, press Copy. 3 Press Options until Maintenance appears. 4 Press the right arrow until Align Cartridges appears, and then press Select. An alignment page prints. Once this page prints, your automatic alignment is complete.

YOU NEED TO LET THE PRINTER RE-ALIGN ITSELF AFTER INSTALLING PRINT CARTRIDGES, THE PRINTER SHOULD HAVE PAPER IN IT TO DO THIS, THE TEST PAGE PRINTED WILL THEN NEED TO BE PLACED IN THE PRINTER ON THE GLASS, PRESS SCAN, THIS SHOULS RESET YOUR PRINTER.

HOPE THIS HELPS!

How to reset the counter when replacing the inkjet cartridge.


Typically when you put a new ink cartridge in a printer you need to go to the cartridge maintenance location of the driver and "reset" the counter so the computer knows you have a new cartridge installed. By doing this the computer can keep track of the ink level because it knows approximately how many sheets can be printed on an average cartridge. This location can be accessed from the desktop by clicking on "start", then "control panel" then "printers and other hardware" then "view installed printers and other hardware", then click on the appropriate printer, then click on "printer" then "properties" then "cartridge maintenance". At this point there should be a selection where you can reset the counter, print a test page, print an alignement page, etc. I would recommend printing an alignment page. Every time you remove and install a new printer the alignment changes. Follow the instructions on the screen and your printer should be reset and printing like a champ.

Hi

Check if the alignment page has been printed correctly i mean the bars printed with a little yellow color around it right?

Okay what you can do is do a reset first. Follow the below things

1. When the printer is on remove the power directly from the back of the printer.
2. hold # and 9 key and connect the power
3. Printer will show you on the screen it is resetting the NVRAM then release the buttons

The printer will print alignment page again this time try to scan and it should work.

I installed a new printer cartridge. The alignment page printed out but I threw it out. I didn't realize I would need it for any reason. How do I align my cartridge without the paper.


Every HP I've owned has printed the alignment page until you scan it. Just plug in the printer, power it up, and check it out. If that doesn't work, try removing the ink cartridge, and reinstall it. One way or the other, I'm sure the HP will print a new alignment page.

  1. On your computer, go to "Start," "Programs," "Lexmark Series." Click "Lexmark Control Program."
  2. Step 2 Select the "Cartridges" tab. Click "Change Cartridges." The Change Cartridges screen appears, displaying the animated instructions for installing or changing cartridges. When you have finished viewing the animation, click the "Finished" button.
  3. Step 3 Remove the tape covering the print head of the new print cartridge. Insert the new print cartridge as shown in the animation.
  4. Step 4 When the "Choose Cartridges" screen appears, select the cartridge(s) you installed in your printer from the list boxes. Click the appropriate box to reset the ink levels to full. Click "OK."
  5. Step 5 The Automatic Alignment screen appears. Click "Align" to align the print cartridges for best print quality. The printer prints a page with a bi-directional alignment pattern. On the printed test page, locate the number that comes closest to forming a straight line under the bi-directional alignment pattern. Enter that number as the bi-directional alignment setting in the Alignment Cartridge dialog box. Click "OK."
