HP OfficeJet K60 Printer

My printer is constantly displaying "Press Enter to Align Print Cartridges".  Even though I do that it continues to display the message and impairs my ability to utilize the printer to its fullest capacity.  How do I go about getting rid of that message? Thank you for any assistance.............Steve

    I have the same problem and don't have a "menu" button. I need to get a new color cartridge but don't want to buy one just yet as I don't really need to have color. Any suggestions?

You can bypass when asked and use last good settings by..Press and hold the Enter button, and then press Menu

 

This problem is caused by incorrect alignment page print out caused by faulty cartridges, ideal fix is replacement of all ink carts

 

HP have a webpage dedicated to this...h10025.www1.hp.com

Also get on your gloves get out your vac and suck on the carts till a little ink comes out, make sure colour cart releases all 3 colours then reinstall, can get messy.

You have not completed the alignment procedure.
After getting the self printout you put it in the scanner and press scaner
button. During the process the light will blink.

Take the cartridge out again and check there isn't still a little piece of plastic tape sticking to it! Yes, I only found it after I read your page here. But now the Align cartridges message is gone and it has printed the check page beautifully... I'm happy.

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.

Psc 950xi printer hp


You may be doing everything right except the very last thing.

After replacing the cartridges, your product display will ask to do a cartridge alignment. Press ENTER on the control panel to align the print cartridges.

You must allow your printer to finish this procedure.

Display message won't stop: Press Enter to align cartridges.


I honestly don't know how I solved it; I did everything your forum suggests at least two times (restarting, disconnecting, re-installing, etc), but nothing would work. After I got up the next morning (four hours sleep!), I did it all again, and this time it worked. I did two things differently that may have worked. Somewhere in the owners manual, it says to wait for quite a long time (like over 5 minutes--I don't have the manual with me now). Also, it says to NOT turn the printer on until AFTER installing the software. Those two little items may have made the difference, but the main idea of reinstalling came from you. Thanks!

Align page message


I have an OfficeJet 5780 and I have to do the alignment also. The allignment page it prints should have instructions on it. Just put it in the scanner and press "Enter". It needs to scan it to align the print heads.

This is from the manual on their website:

The HP Officejet 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.
An align cartridges (test pattern) page prints.
2 Load the align cartridges page face down in the ADF between the paperwidth
guides and press the Enter button again.
3 Recycle or discard the page.

OfficeJet K60 All In One Problem:Aligning Cartridges


In the process of alignment there are two phases:

1. When the message comes to align the ink ..press ok and the page is printed out.

2. Once the page is printed then place the page on the scanner glass and tehn scan the same.

Follow these two steps in the same order and it will never give Align Ink Cart message again.
