All colors need to be present to pass alignment. Usually what I see is the yellow is empty. You can blot the print cartridge on a damp paper towel to verify the inks are working and this also cleans the head.

    You may need to clean the printheads, there is a place in the setup menu with tools that includes printhead cleaning. That's the best way without damaging the printheads.

HP C7280 does not print straight, ie the print is angled on page


There is no way that a printer prints out of alignment unless the paper slips enroute. Meaning that the rollers are not holding the paper tight and the guides not pressing the paper snugly, as you put it. So, it could either be the rollers not aligned to each other properly or the guides not pressing the paper equally. The print head moves on a steel rod which is straight. So that can not be the culprit as the print head has to move in a straight line, irrespective of the paper being straight or slipped. So, that leaves us with the slipping paper for which there are the rollers and the guides. If you feel that the tension in the guides is not equal, then change the guides, else the rollers need a closer look. Or at least clean them with a damp soft cloth and allow them to dry up before using them.

My printer has the message " alignment failed refer to device documantation". How do I fix this.


Use the setup button and scroll down to print reports, print the self test report and it should show all colors. If any color is not printing you probably need a new printhead for that color. Otherwise do a printhead cleaning until all colors print, and then alignment won't fail.

Will not print or copy


When you power up it should come up to "press enter to align cartridges" You need to have all inks installed,and clean the printhead
If any colors are missing it will fail the alignment. Once alignment is complete you should be OK.

HP Photosmart C6180 colors no good - missing colors & muted. No longer aligns print when requested, per HP note at end. Already cleaned print heads,[OK], aligned printer numerous times-doesn't work....


try resetting the printer using the # and the number 6 buttons,holding them down and then inserting the power cord at the back of the printer.
see if it works.

Color Cartridge Failure


You know, I'm not going to read the other solution. I know 100% FOR SURE, when a cartridge fails, it is dead and there is nothing you can do about it, but there is a good side. HP ink cartridges have a year warranty. Call them and tell them it failed, they'll send you a new one!
