Aligning Ink Cartridges Your printer automatically aligns the ink cartridges when they are installed or replaced. To verify your ink cartridges are aligned, you can print an alignment page. After you close the printer unit, press the Menu button. The alignment page begins printing. During printing, the operator panel display reads Alignment Page Printing. When complete, the message reads Auto Alignment Complete. Your ink cartridges are now aligned for optimal print quality.
You may also need to align ink cartridges when characters are not properly formed or are not aligned at the left margin, or when vertical or straight lines appear wavy.
To align the ink cartridges:

  1. Load plain paper. For more information, see Loading Paper.

  2. Click Start® Programs or All Programs® Dell Printers® Dell Photo AIO Printer 922® Dell Printer Solution Center.

  3. Click the Maintenance tab

  4. Click Align to fix blurry edges.

  5. Click Print.

The ink cartridges align when the page prints.


If this helps you plz rate this fixya. Thank you kindly. If you need more help post it & I'll be glad to do what I can.

Hi I have a 928 Dell photo printer. For some reason the printwer kept taking the pages at an angle no matter what I did. When it began to take them correctly a page dot stuck. I eventually got it out but now the machine is making a weird knocking sound when printing and I cant seem to find where its coming from. Now words are coming out blurred and I kep being told the alignment is wrong...I hope its not bust because I was careful but it doesnt sound good when it prints.

SOURCE: Can't seem to print in black only.

Are ya sure it isn't only preventing scanning direct to printer output? Is it also disallowing scanning to file? Epson printers can´t operate if one of the cartridges is empty. There is no workaround for that. Epson printers actually use a LITTLE ink from ALL the color carts, even when you select "black only" in the driver. They do this to help keep the nozzles from clogging in the case of users who mostly print in black. Nobody [besides perhaps Epson] ever claimed Epson printers were the most efficient or environmentally-friendly ones in the world. for quite a while now Epson uses piezoelectric printheads, as opposed to the thermal heads used on most other printers. The enemy of piezo heads is air bubbles. They candamage the costly head, and that's why you cannot continue to use the printer if ANY individual cartridge runs out of ink. In fact, Epson designed its cartridges to signal "empty" when there's still around 15% (higher by some estimates) ink left! That's to make certain you can't run the cart completely dry and thereby introduce air into the head. If you don't believe that, carefully open up a spent cartridge over a sink, slice open the plastic film covering the various ink channels and rinse it out -- repeatedly push in the spring loaded outlet valve as well. There's so much ink left, it will take quite a while before the water begins to clear! It's incredibly wasteful and annoying, but it actually saves money in the long run, because it's even MORE wasteful to run tons of cleaning cycles just to purge the head once you've gotten air in the system. Aftermarket carts and ink can save lots of money, but they're a crap shoot. Fed up with OEM price gouging and scare tactics, I decided to try a clear-cartridge refill kit for my R200. The RX600 uses the same kit: http://www.inkjetcarts.us/servlet/Detail?no=8 Good Luck!

SOURCE: Epson rx580 printer

I just started calling Epson's customer service line every time. They always offered to FEDEX new ink. I got tired of waiting for it to come and began returning bad cartridges to office depot where I had bought it and found out that they will take it back if it doesn't work. Now I've decided that some (a lot) of Epson's ink cartridges for the RX580 are bad and that I just have to keep trying until I get ink cartridges that work. I had tried the qtip cleaning, checking the ink/sensor connection, and making sure I had them snapped in tight. I've finally figured out it IS the ink. BTW, I always use the ink Epson reccomends, so it is definately that many of their cartridges are faulty. It's a pain to have to return them but as long as I can return and replace them and eventually have a machine that will print when I need it to, I can live with that.

Try to remove the ink jet cartridges and blow with compressed air in a can.

Also, try to download the latest drivers and firmware from the hp.com site for your printer.

If this doesn't work, then the printer may be damaged beyond repair, especially if you have tried to align the cartridges, and clean to no avail.

Luckily, ink jet printers don't cost that much compared to homework backing up, so i would consider a new printer.

How to change all the ink cartridges at the same time because I was unable to remove some ink cartridges. The whole cartridges cannot be fully exposed.


Here are instructions on how to change the printer cartridges in an Epson Stylus. First open the printer cover. Look for the button with the picture of the ink drop on it. Press the button but do not hold it down for more then ten seconds. At fifteen seconds the align print cartridge function comes on and this will interfere with changing your cartridges. When you push the button with the picture of the ink drop on it, it will make the machine line up the cartridges in an area that you can reach easily. Then just remove the one you wish to replace. Use these instructions each time you change the cartridges.

I have just changed my black ink cartridge however still patchy


Typically you do not have to change the color cartridge when you replace the black cartridge.
As far as the spotty printing, it sounds like you have some clogged nozzles caused by the lower quality of ink in refilled or aftermarket cartridges. There cartridge inks may not be up to specification. This is especially true for the ultra fine printers.
To clear the problem you need to insert an OEM cartridge, run the deep nozzle cleaning utiliity at least twice followed by the alignment utility. This should clear up the problem with the spotty and washed out printout.
Let me know if this solves your problem otherwise we can explore other solutiions. For the record, which printer do you have?
Please rate this solution. Thanks.

Alignment


Remove both the cartridges from the printer and check the expiry dates on both cartridges, if any of the cartridge is expired then change the cartridge and check the result. If the cartridges are not expired then check the ink levels present in the cartridges from the HP Solution Center. If the ink levels are good then clean the copper contacts of the cartridges with a soft cotton cloth and power cycle the printer.

  1. Turn the product off.
  2. Unplug the power cord from the product.
  3. Wait 30 seconds, and then reconnect the power cord to the product.
  4. Turn the product on.
Now insert the cartridges and align them, after alignment page prints then scan the page.

If it still gives alignment failed message then remove the cartridges and reset the printer and check for the result.

Horizontal lines in pictures


If you are using original cartridges then there should not be a problem. The horizontal lines come from the cartridge. Can you pinpoint if it is a color or black line that is missing? My guess is that during the alignment procedure, you are asked to choose a number or letter that corresponds to picture of a the lines that show the best alignment. If you did this correctly, may I ask how many pictures you printed before seeing that line. Is it on the first print or 10th printing? Cuz if it is on the 5th or more full color picture, then the problem is that you you really have the wrong printer. The F380 capacity for printing full color pictures is miniscule. 1 ml per color. So usually after the 3rd color picture, the ink starts to run out. Let me know if this helps.

hmmmm...assuming that the cartridge is installed properly, yes? seems that your black ink cartridge may need to go through a 'clean' process, prior to alignment(sure wish that the replacement folks would insist on cleaning out the old heads, before doing an alignment. It's like changing the oil on your car, but using the old filter. Same gunk still in the system.
