There is a possibility that the printhead is already defective. try to get the status of your printer through its status monitor in the computer. you can get it by going to control panel, printers and faxes(or printers for older version of windows) then right click your printer driver and choose properties. from the properties window, choose printing preferences then maintenance tab and check printer status.

The printer suddenly started printing fuzzy text. I think it is out of alignment but when I try to print the alignment page, it comes out fuzzy too. Is there another way to align the printer and take care...


There are several reasons why the HP All-in-One may fail to align the cartridges. The most common reason is an ink cartridge that has one of the following problems:
  • One of the ink cartridges is low or out of ink. Black and all three colors must be available.
  • The paper has already been printed on or is colored paper.
  • Protective tape on a new ink cartridge has not been removed.
  • Contacts on the ink cartridge are not meeting the contacts in the carriage correctly.
  • Cartridge is remanufactured or refilled. Refilled or remanufactured ink cartridges may have been damaged during the refilling process or have clogged ink nozzles.
  • The ink cartridge is defective

Ink cartridge


Try pressing the new cartridge onto a damp paper towel. Look for all colors to make a streak on the towel, if any color or black is missing it won't pass alignment. It won't pass alignment or let you print until you get all the colors working.

Dell 922 printer alignment problem after refilling cartridge


Sounds like the cartridge ink jets have dried up. Try running a cleaning on them to see if you can unclog them. If this fails to work try gently rubbing the ink jets with a Qtip and alcohol. If this doesn't work for you then you will need to purchase new cartridges.

Printer Alignment Failed in HP C5280


You must replace both with new GENUINE HP ink cartridges at the same time or alignment will fail.

This is how HP makes their money.
