    keeps saying align cartridge

  • leslvart May 14, 2009

    When I plug in the printer is says, "Press Enter to align cartridges". I do that and it says"printing align cartridges page". It starts printing and a few seconds later says that it failed and spits out a page with a longer solid black line and a shorter solid black line underneath the first line.

After changing ink carteidge it keep saying align cartridge, what can i do to erase this error?


It is my pleasure to guide you.

These steps will take you through the process of replacement and alignment.

HP PSC 2175 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1. Turn on the unit, then open the print-carriage access door by lifting the
handle until the door locks into place. The print carriage moves to the center of the unit.

2. After the carriage stops moving, lift the latch to release the print cartridge, then pull it toward you out of its slot.

3. If you are removing the black print cartridge in order to install the photo print cartridge, store it in the print cartridge protector.

4. Remove the new print cartridge from its packaging and, being careful to touch only the black plastic, gently remove the plastic tape.

Caution! Do not touch the copper contacts or ink nozzles.

5. Push the new print cartridge into the appropriate slot until it clicks into place. The tri-color print cartridge goes on the left and the black or photo print cartridge goes on the right.

6. Pull the end of the latch toward you, press down until it stops, and then release. Make sure the latch catches below the bottom tabs.

7. Close the print-carriage access door.

align the print cartridges

The HP PSC 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. A page of patterns is printed. The cartridges are aligned correctly. Recycle or discard the page.

To align the cartridges at any other time:
1. Press Setup.
2. Press 2, then press 2.
This selects Maintenance, and then selects Align Print Cartridges.
A page of patterns is printed. The cartridges are aligned correctly. Recycle or discard the page.
I found the manual for this printer, if you do not have it already. If you wish to download it click or copy this link

The printer can not align cartridges.


Try holding down the setup button, then hitting the options button at the same time. This worked on my hp 2175. Might work for you!

Hp psc 2175 all in one printer keeps giving me a paper mismatch message.


Hello tabbeach. The printing cartridge align page message appears if u have any alignment job pending, if it asks to print the alignment page. Follow the steps provided here.
Still if u are facing the same issue, perform a HP Media sense caliberation , which in most cases will resolve the issue
the steps to perform media sense calibration are provided here .

Aligning new cartridge


I had the same problem and did some searching on the HP support site (what a mess...)

I did find there was a new firmware update for the 2175. I tried it, and it worked for me. The note on the update says that there were problems.

Here's the link:
