Replace the cartridges .. do an alignment page and a utility cleaning .. that should take care of it

Just installed a old printer i had bought hp psc 950. Message 'press enter to align; wont go away. I dont think it prints a complete test page. Also I put in a 45 cartridge which hp say sis compatible...


Hello,

I disagree with a driver issue at this point. The printer wants to align the ink thus this has nothing to do with the software layer of the operating system. However if you purchased compatible ink but it says its the wrong ink you would need to visit Hp.com and check for any firmware software to update the printer.

Many cases people just purchase the wrong version ink witch would cause the error. I would not recommend refilling the 15 cartridge, your better off just purchasing a new number 15.

Please check HP.com for any firmware updates for your printer.
Please purchase another 15 cartridge then re run the align function again.

If all steps fail you might have a issue with the print head or nozzle, witch you better off just purchasing a new all in one Hp trow away.

All in one printers in my humble opinion if they cost under $200 bucks they don't last these days. Real good printers are over $200 and carry more then 1 year parts and labor such as Epson.

Thanks for using Fixya,

Best Regards

You printer maybe lock in alignment status.

Error message saying incorrect print cartridge.


Check the Electrical contacts on the cartridge itself, they all need to be clean and nice and shiny to work properly. Make sure you haven't overfilled the cartridge too, this can sometimes cause problems. To be honest, the HP cartridges do 'wear out' after a few refills. when they go electrically dead, there is nothing you can do about it apart from buy a new one!

Hp PSC 950 gives me a message to remove and check black cartridge


Did you remove the tape from the contacts of the new black cartridge? If so once the new one is in, unplug the printer from power and power it back on, it should do a full check after a power on off.

HP PSC 950 problem


Look in the printer software on the computer for paper size settings. If that doesn't help go into the settings menu on the printer it self. If you have HP Setup Assistant on your computer, use that to reset up your printer to your computer.
