Re: Will not print

Take the cartridge out and reinsert it. This should trigger off the alignment tool again. Otherwise look on your programs menu for utilities to change cartridge. Assuming you have XP follow this Click on start Click on printers & faxes Double click on your printer Click on printer Click on properties Click on advanced Click on printing defaults Click on services Open HP Toolbox (or whatever your option is) There you should see align Hope this helps

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.

How do I reset my hp officejet 6110 all-in-one printer? It keeps asking me to align cartridges.

Press menu and then press the Right Arrow key until you get to maintenance screen then press enter.
Option 2 is you align print cartridges.
Automatic cartridge alignment
Perform the following steps to align the ink cartridges:

1. Disconnect the power cord from the unit, wait five seconds, and then plug it back in. This will reinitialize the unit.
2. Print another alignment test page. If the Press Enter to align message is not currently on the front panel display, complete the following steps to print an alignment page:
1. Press Setup or Menu on the front panel (depending on the model).
2. Press the right arrow button (>) until Maintenance or Tools is displayed, and then press Enter or OK (depending on the model).
3. Press the right arrow button (>) until Align Print Cartridges is displayed, and then press Enter or OK (depending on the model).
3. To determine if the automatic alignment is functioning correctly, look into the output tray as the alignment page is printing; a blue light should be visible periodically on the page as the cartridges move back and forth. If this light is not visible, the product will not be able to align the cartridges and will require service. Service the product.
4. If the blue light is visible and the alignment pages are printing correctly, but the alignment pages still fails, there still may be a hardware problem with the unit.
If there are no other printing problems and you wish to continue, use the information in the Bypassing the ink cartridge alignment section below to bypass the alignment. The information from last successful alignment will be used.
If the message keeps reappearing or other print quality problems occur, service the product.

Need to install new ink

Lift the entire top including the scanner portion until it clicks to stay open by itself (like some vehicle hoods). You should see the print head containing all the ink. It will slide back and forth for a moment, this is normal. Wait until it comes to a stop. Notice any blinking lights below the ink cartridges. If the light is solid, there is enough ink. If the light is blinking you'll need to replace that cartridge for the best print quality. Remove the ink by carefully but forcefully pushing on the tab with one finger and holding the back of the cartridge with other. It should simply slide out. Note the EXACT #'s on the ink cartridges. Right down all the information and the type of printer you have and take it to your local best buy or equivalent store, they will give you the replacement cartridges you need. Unwrap the package and carefully remove the orange tab on the bottom by twisting in the direction shown. (You may want to wear rubber gloves because the ink stains fingers badly.) Carefully but forcefully slide the new cartridge in place of the old and push down until you hear a click. The light under the cartridge should now be solid. Once all carts have been replaced close the lid of the printer and give it a moment to situate. Run a print head alignment to manually align all nozzles for best printing quality. Simply click the head align software button and follow the instructions, quite easy. You should be all set and ready to print!

My HP printer PSC 1510 All-in-One no longer asks me to align my ink cartridges after a change of cartridges. Now, after a system recovery, it prints an alignment page every time I turn it on, whereas...

The only way to stop this is to press the cancel button, just as it tries to print the test page.

Various people have said the printer won't align (calibrate) successfully unless both ink cartridges are more than 50% full, and until it aligns successfully, it will continue to print the test page on start-up.

It is a total waste of ink and paper, so remember to hit the cancel button when you turn it on.

Color Cartridge Failure

You know, I'm not going to read the other solution. I know 100% FOR SURE, when a cartridge fails, it is dead and there is nothing you can do about it, but there is a good side. HP ink cartridges have a year warranty. Call them and tell them it failed, they'll send you a new one!
