Says low black ink, will not print aligment page, was given to me by freind who was moving, don't have manuel or sofeware for computer. Have a Mac Book-Pro, not even a year old yet (the computer)


Try to re-seat the cartridges into the printer. Remove both cartrdiges > . pull out the power supply (black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer) and put it back after 30 seconds > firmly re-insert the cartridges. Let it print the alignment page.



If the display screen shows "low black ink" again, then try to replace the black cartridge. The printer requires all cartridges to have sufficient ink in them to continue printing. Try to replace your black ink with a new one, preferably a genuine cartridge.
Should you still need assistance, please leave a comment to my response and I'll get back to you.

Black ink wont work. I did the alignment and it stated that the ink wasn't calibrated. I just replaced all the ink cartridges. I cleaned the printheads. The black ink wasn't working before I replaced it.


hi there!

please try to shake the ink cartridges then reinstall them again, make sure you hear the clicking sound meaning the cartridges are locked in place. you can try and call 800-HP invent or 800-474-6836 for technical support aswell. here is the link for your printer, you can get drivers, manuals and troubleshooting steps here as well.

I am setting up a new printer HP Photosmart D110 and the new cartridges will not align. I get a message that the cartridges are not calibrated for best print quality after scanning the alignment page....


Step one: Load the correct type of paper Remove all the paper from the tray. NOTE: Colored, photo, or used paper can cause the alignment to fail. Load unused, plain white, letter, or A4-sized paper with a brightness level of at least 85 into the tray. NOTE: Look for the brightness level on the paper packaging. Step two: Align the All-in-One Press Setup . Press 5 . The product opens the Tools menu on the control panel display. Press 3 to select Align Printer . The product calibrates, aligns the printhead, and then prints an alignment page. Recycle or discard the alignment page. Video of aligning the All-in-One The following video demonstrates the steps for fixing a carriage or paper jam. The product shown in the video is the HP Photosmart C7280. The outside of the product might look different, but the steps are similar for the same for the HP Photosmart 3100, 3200, and 3300 All-in-One series products. If you have trouble viewing the video or to view the video in a different size, click here to play the video (in English) on YouTube. If these steps resolved the issue , there is no need to continue troubleshooting. If the issue persists , see the next step. Step three: Clean and reinstall the cartridges If the contacts on a cartridge are dirty or do not seat correctly, the alignment might fail. Follow these steps in the order presented to clean and reinstall the cartridges. Gather the following materials: Soft, lint-free materials, such as foam-tipped swabs, that do not stick to the electrical contacts Clean, lint-free paper to rest the cartridges on (coffee filters work well) Distilled water Press the Power button to turn on the product. Open the cartridge door. Squeeze the tab below the black cartridge on the far left side of the carriage, and then lift the cartridge latch. 1 - Cartridge latch for the black cartridge 2 - Cartridge latches for the color cartridges Remove the cartridge by pulling it toward you and out of its slot. CAUTION: Do not remove multiple cartridges at the same time. Remove, clean, and then reinstall each cartridge one at a time. Do not leave a cartridge outside the HP All-in-One for more than 30 minutes. Inspect the cartridge contacts for ink and debris buildup. Dip a clean foam rubber swab or lint-free cloth into distilled water, and then squeeze any excess water from it. NOTE: Hold the cartridge by its handle. Do not touch the copper-colored contacts with your hands or anything other than a foam rubber swab or lint-free cloth. Clean only the copper-colored contacts. 1 - Copper-colored contacts Slide the cartridge back into the empty slot. Secure the cartridge in the slot by pressing down on the latch until it clicks into place. Repeat steps 2 through 5 for each of the cartridges. Close the cartridge door, and then try to align the product again. If these steps resolved the issue , there is no need to continue troubleshooting. If the issue persists , see the next step. Step four: Check the ink levels Empty or nearly empty cartridges can result in alignment failures. Follow these steps in the order presented to check the ink levels in the cartridges. Press Setup Press 5 , and then press 1 . The Tools menu displays. Click Display Ink Gauge . The gauges for the six cartridges display. Check the gauge for empty or almost empty cartridges, and then replace any you find. The product automatically performs an alignment and prints an alignment page. If these steps resolved the issue , there is no need to continue troubleshooting. If the issue persists , see the next step. Step five: Replace the cartridges Follow these steps to replace any cartridges that are empty or low on ink. Open the cartridge door. Squeeze the tab below the black cartridge on the far left side of the carriage, and then lift the cartridge latch.
1 - Cartridge latch for the black cartridge 2 - Cartridge latches for the color cartridges Remove the cartridge by pulling it toward you and out of its slot. CAUTION: Do not replace multiple cartridges at the same time. Replace each cartridge one at a time. Do not leave a cartridge outside the HP All-in-One for more than 30 minutes. Remove the new cartridge from its packaging, and then, holding it by the handle, slide the ink cartridge into the empty slot. Slide the new cartridge forward into the empty slot. Repeat 2 through 5 for each of the cartridges. Close the cartridge door, and then try to align the product again. If these steps resolved the issue , there is no need to continue troubleshooting. If the issue persists , see the next step. Step six: Reset and relocate the product A power reset drains power from the product and returns the product to the same settings after restarting. Moving the product to another location and plugging it directly into a wall outlet can eliminate any potential power deficiencies that might prevent a successful alignment. Make sure that you have the product turned on. If necessary, press the Power button to turn on the product. With the product turned on, disconnect the power cord from the back of the product. Relocate the All-in-One to a different power outlet, preferably in a separate room Plug the power cord directly into the wall outlet. Do not use a power strip. Reconnect the power cord to the back of the product. Press the Power button to turn on the product. Load plain white paper into the tray. Try the alignment again.

I have replaced both the color and black ink cartriges, however the printer is giving me the "color ink low" indication and a check ink u163 blk alarm. We have reset the cartriges to no avail.


Per the Canon.com troubleshooting guide found on THIS WEBSITE, it would be recommended to ensure that you have the proper cartridge for your printer. Also, double check that you have fully seated in the cartridges and that they align as they should. Lastly, it is important that you are using Genuine Canon ink cartridges to ensure longer printer life, not void any warranty you may have remaining on the printer, and most importantly to ensure proper communication with the actual cartridges.

Dial says to remove cartridges and check. Have replaced cartridge


After cleaning cartridges and replacing refilled black ink, I removed blck ink and replaced with HP 58 photo ink. this aborted the "check cartridges freeze". I still cannot align cartridges after removing #58 and replacing with new HP 57. the operation starts but will not complete.

Any suggestions on how to align cartridges?
