    i got precise the same problem !!!!

  • Anonymous Nov 19, 2007

    I recently needed to replace my print cartridge for the X2470. Before replacing the old cartridge, I printed one more color foto, correctly, from a file on my desk top. I then replaced the cartridge. From then on, when trying to print a foto through the Lexmark Imaging Studio, I get the dialog boxes "PRINT THE ALIGNMENT PAGE" and "SCAN ALIGNMENT PAGE." I print the alignment page which looks fine to me. I then get the message, "AUTOMATIC ALIGNMENT PROBLEM." I re-installed the cartridge several times, with no improvement. I even installed the old cartridge and tried to print a foto, with the same results.
    The bottoms of the two cartridges look slightly different. Can you help?

    exact same problem, the solution below only sets the scanner trying to scan but does not print the allignment page. my problem is not printing the allingment page but printing anything else!!!

    If this wasn't my girlfriends printer I would have smashed it up by now.

    Same problem as above, printer worked fine on my xp machine, when i tried to install to a new computer with vista os i downloaded the vista driver then the problem started, i tried to reconnect to my old machine with xp but the problem still occurs. Is it maybe something to do with the vista driver?? or am i just being stupid.

    I think I have solved the problem, it worked at the first time (after dozens of tries): I just leave the scanner cover open ;)

    The printer will print the alignmnet page, but when I try to scan it an error message appears. I have downloaded the fix for this problem from the lexmark website - but it still doesn't work!

    I am a person of fairly high intelligence - I continue to have the same issue with the alignment page with my x2470. I know how to print an alignment page my problem lies with the scanning it tells me there is a problem with the printer. The aligment page looks great and I have printed on this machine before but when I have to change the ink cartidge it always does the same thing and there is no way to bypass the BS alignment page so you can get on to more important printing. I talked to a representative about this, their solution was to send me a brand new machine. Well it did the same thing. The only way i am able to fix this is by unistallnig the software and then reinstalling the printer with the new cartidge already in place. What a piece of ****!

    Mine keeps asking me to print an alignment page like everyday. I have had it for one week and have printed like 15 alignment pages already. My prints have all looked fine and its just f***ing annoying and a waste of ink. What do i do?

  • Pat Chicago Feb 15, 2009

    Have Lexmark X2470. Installed new Ink Cartridge, asked me to "align" the printer, printed the alignment sheet, and scanned it as instructed. Did that over and over again. At one point I right clicked the alignment screen to close it and worked. I went through so much ink that the next day after printing what I needed, I replaced the Ink cartridge again. Same problem and can't figure how to bypass the auto alignment again. There's got to be a way to bypass if I was able to accomplish it before. I see that this is a common problem. Anyone???

  • to_ashez Mar 02, 2009

    i have the same problem with the stupid lexmark printer the f***in piece of **** keeps telling me thats its not aligned and i cant figure it out i was going to call text support but their not avaible on sundays well guess iam going to have to take the piece of **** back to walmart along with all the other **** i had to buy that it didnt tell on the box that i needed to find out till i got home and it told me that i need black ink, also it doesnt print blue ink WHAT A RIP OFF!!! i very highly recommend that no but buys the Lexmark x2600 or any other kind of lexmark printers

  • Justin Goldberg May 11, 2010

    Is there any way to stop the annoying "print the alignment page", other than aligning it? I use mine as a scanner, as mine is used only as a scanner, because it jams.

Cartrige problem

Posted on Jul 28, 2011

The Lexmark technician sent these instructions:

1. Please Load a plain piece of paper.
2. Press and hold the "Scan" button for
three seconds.
3. An alignment page prints.
4. Place the alignment page onto the scanner
glass.
5. Press the "Scan" button.
6. Once scanning is complete, the cartridge
has been aligned for optimal print quality.
Alignment must be complete before
continuing with any print jobs.

They worked perfectly for my situation (see
"Guest" above).

Leave the scanner lid open when you print a dcoument and this will remove the alignment test page which made me crazy for about 2 days.

Not printing correctly. Says to align cartriges. After aligning cartriges, it stills prints incorrectly no mater how many times I align cartriges.


Clean the ink cartrige and the cartrige carrier with lukewarm water or alcohol on a cotton cloth and then install the cartridge. Even if that does not work then you will have to reset the printer for which turn off the printer and then press and hold power and start buttons for 10-15sec and then release.. Then try it again.
