In my experience, usually alignment is canceled because one (or both) of the cartridges is not printing properly, and needs to be cleaned.

Hopefully, your alignment page will have printed something before it got canceled. Look at it and see whether the print is in color or black -- then clean whichever cartridge is NOT printing. (Search for "how to clean HP/Compaq/Brother etc. cartridge" for details of the right way to do it for your particular printer. What often works, though, is to take a Q-tip, moisten it with hot water, and gently rub the print head. You can escalate from there to immersing print head in boiling water, using water/alcohol, using an ultrasonic cleaner, etc.)

After you've cleaned the cartridge, the printer may say "remove and check cartridge." Sometimes, all you have to do is take it out and put it in again.

Once you replace a cartridge on a 2210 ya page prints and you must put that page on the scanner window and then press enter. Your computer will go through a calibration to align the print head. once this is done you can throw away the paper and printing will be normal

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.

Hp2210 message ''press enter to align cartridges'',


from user manual::
To align newly installed print cartridges
1. Make sure you have letter or A4 unused plain white paper loaded in the input tray.
The HP All-in-One prints a print cartridge alignment sheet.
NOTE: If you have colored paper loaded in the input tray when you align the print cartridges, the alignment will fail. Load unused plain white paper into the input tray, and then try the alignment again.
If the alignment fails again, you might have a defective sensor or print cartridge.
Contact HP Support. Go to www.hp.com/support. ....
2. Load the print cartridge alignment sheet print side down on the left front corner of the glass with the top of the page to the left.
3. Press the Scan button.
The HP All-in-One aligns the print cartridges. Recycle or discard the print cartridge alignment sheet
