Re: Printer cartridges

Are you trying to use brand new HP cartridges? If you are using an off brand cartridge (even if it says it will work with an HP printer) these do NOT always work. If they are HP brand then you might not be removing the plastic from them all the way (check for plastic covering the metal contacts on the bottom and the back of the cartridge which could be imparing contact). Also, make sure you are seating them properly. Some cartridges require you push them firmly into place. It shouldn't take a LOT of force to do so, but it would require more then just sliding it into place.

The steps below should help you override the error and make the printer accept the cartridges and allow you to print.

    • 1

      Remove and replace the print cartridge. If that doesn't solve the error, move on to Step 2.

    • 2

      Remove the print cartridge from the machine.

      • 3

        Wet the end of a cotton swab with rubbing alcohol.

      • 4

        Wipe the copper colored contacts on the print cartridge with the cotton swab to clean.

      • 5

        Wipe the contacts in the printer where the cartridge sits.

      • 6

        Replace the cartridge and try a test print. If removing residue for a clean connection didn't solve the error, move on to step 7.

      • 7

        Turn off the printer.

      • 8

        Unplug the printer from the power source and leave it unplugged for 15 to 30 minutes. This will reset the printer.

      • 9

        Plug the printer back into the power source and turn it on.

      • 10

        Print a test page.

    Just put in a new black cartridge and it wont print anything. Keeps saying alignment problem and prints a bunch of tourquoise designs in stripes. got the alignment note to go away but still nothing on...

    It could be that one of your cartridges are not seated well in the carrier or one of your cartridges are faulty or just needs cleaning:
    1. Open the printer cover.
    2. Remove both cartridges from the printer.
    3. Close the printer cover.
    4. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it.
    5. When the printer turns on, re-insert one cartridge first. Close the cover.
    6. Check for any errors.
    7. If no error appears, re-insert the other cartridge.
    8. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the error to appear. Or you could also insert a different known working cartridge to determine if the other is faulty.

    Printer says to insert black print cartridge in right stall

    Refer to printer manual as some of them require you to reset the software to accept new cartridge.

    Put new cartridge in but error light keeps coming on even after reboot how do i fix this?

    Remove the cartridge and put it in again.
    If it has a reset button, push that.
    If you have "refilled" your cartridge the answers will be different. Did you?

    Printer keeps showing : Press enter to align cartridges. After doing this it then prints out an alignment page and shows: Alignment failed please: Press enter Alignment failed. This goes on and on. I have...

    I have found that if I put in an old aligned page the printer reads it as and the alignment is accepted. As for the cancelled message being in the window, I have had this problem too. I've ignored it and selected the copy button and it took the command. The only problem with hitting cancel is that you cannot turn off your printer. Every time you do you have to repeat the aligning and cancellation process.

    I fixed the problem I was having by re-installing the program, which then told me exactly what the problem was. It was the color cartridge.
    I then put a new cartridge in and it worked!
