Go into Printer tools (look in the Print dialog box to find it in a drop down menu or a button in the window.)  There should be a set of instructions or a Wizard to take you through the process.  It is not difficult.

You must replace both with new GENUINE HP ink cartridges at the same time or alignment will fail.

This is how HP makes their money.

SOURCE: cannot align ink cartridges in my cannon mp160 printer

Normal 0 Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

E5 what does this mean and how can I get out of it?


Hello and welcome to FixYa!

Error E5 means that the ink cartridge is not installed or the ink cartridges is not installed properly or may be
non-supported ink cartridge is installed.
It may also mean that if you have both cartridges in printer one or both are failed. To solve this problem check print cartridges and replace first color, if not help replace black ink. Install the appropriate fine cartridge and also If the lines are misaligned or resulting output is not satisfactory, carry out the fine cartridge alignment and make it aligned.

I hope this solution helps you
Don't hesitate to let me know if you want any further assistance.

Cartridge problem


Are you using a factory new ink cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
If you are using factory new cartridges, then please call the manufacturers Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

First, I suggest you run some cleaning runs. Then go into Maintenence and align the print head.

I can't tell what you failures are for sure because I cannot see your failure.

Printer is telling me i have alignement problems


Anytime you remove the cartridge the printer wants to align the print head. It doesn't matter whether you used it or not as long as you change/remove and/or install a new or old cartridge, it will ask to align. If you are printing text only and no pictures, then usually alignment is not critical. Though from experience, it is but usually 9 times out of 10 I don't need to re-align. But if you want to print pictures then you must align.
