Call HP and send it back. They'll run you through their hoops to make sure there really is a problem. (There is, it's a known problem with this printer). They'll send you a new printer and pay for the shipping to send back the broken one.

Don't wait too long.

If possible, save yourself a lot of grief and take the printer back and get a refund. This problem will continue to plague you at some point. It's a problem with the printer itself not in how you use it.

Their software often gets corrupted on your computer and requires reinstalls, you'll have problems with the updates, faxes may or may not go through -- I had mine for a year and trust me it's just better to get a refund and try another computer.

This time, I'm searching Fixya and other sites for known problems before investing a few hundred for a printer.

Unfortunately for me, mine didn't show up until after my warranty expired. (A week after).

Good luck!

SOURCE: aligning cartridges, please wait

Pressed ok more than once to start alignment??
Have you worked through this page already? And you tried the "Bypassing the print cartridge alignment" solution? See HP's solution here. Make sure you don't have photo paper or colored paper in the input tray when aligning...
When you perform the reset, did you unplug the data cable (usb) as well as the power, and wait a few minutes? Try leaving both data and power cables unplugged for 1/2 hour and then resetting, and make sure you complete the power cycle by pressing start copy color. Link here.
If none of these steps work, try removing and reinstalling the cartridges, and if that doesn't help, here's a last ditch fix that may work in your case.
Otherwise, I'm afraid service is the answer...

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

My printer is telling me to "press enter to align the cartridge". i did that but, nothing is happening. HELP!


Solution There are several reasons why the HP All-in-One may fail to align the cartridges. The most common reason is an ink cartridge that has one of the following problems:
  • One of the ink cartridges is low or out of ink. Black and all three colors must be available.
  • The paper has already been printed on or is colored paper.
  • Protective tape on a new ink cartridge has not been removed.
  • Contacts on the ink cartridge are not meeting the contacts in the carriage correctly.
  • Cartridge is remanufactured or refilled. Refilled or remanufactured ink cartridges may have been damaged during the refilling process or have clogged ink nozzles.
  • The ink cartridge is defective.
Follow the steps below to resolve the problem Step one: Examine the paper the alignment page was printed on The alignment page must be printed on clean plain paper of either letter or A4-size and that has a brightness level (as printed on the paper package) of at least 85. Colored papers or paper that already has printing on it will cause the alignment to fail. Back to top Step two: Does the alignment page print correctly For the HP PSC 900 series, if the page ejects immediately or a Paper mismatch or Paper too narrow message is displayed, the 4 x 6 paper tray selector located on the paper output tray is pushed forward. Move the selector all the way toward the front of the product. Look at the alignment pages that the product printed. Compare the alignment page to those that are included in the "Examples of alignment pages" section in this document. If any of the colors or the black is missing from your alignment page, a cartridge-related problem exists. Click here for information about troubleshooting ink- and cartridge-related problems (buu02176) (in English). Back to top Step three: Perform an print cartridge cleaning procedure The product can perform an print cartridge cleaning procedure even after the alignment message has displayed. Follow these steps to perform an print cartridge cleaning procedure at the front panel:
  1. On the front panel, press the Menu or Setup button (depending on the model).
  2. Press the right arrow button (>) until Maintenance or Tools is displayed, and then press the OK or Enter button (depending on the model).
  3. The Clean Print Cartridges message should display on the front panel. Press Enter or OK to begin the cartridge cleaning process.
A page will be printed during the cleaning process with all of the colors on it. If any of the colors (including black) are missing, faded, or streaked on the alignment page, there is a ink cartridge problem. Back to top Step four: Try to align the page again HP products have two methods for aligning the ink cartridges, fully-automatic and semi-automatic. The steps are different for each type. Refer to the information below to determine which alignment method your product uses. 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.

How do i change ink?


If iam not wrong you want to replace the Ink Cartridge. Please follow the below mentioned instruction.

Replacing the print cartridges
  1. Turn on the HP Officejet, and lift open the print-carriage access door. The print carriage will move into the access area. Figure 1: Opening the print-carriage access doorc00034766.jpg
  2. After the carriage stops moving, push down on the top of the print cartridge to release it, and then pull it toward you out of the slot. Figure 2: Removing the print cartridgec00034767.jpg NOTE: It is normal to see ink buildup in the print cartridge slots.
  3. Remove the new print cartridge from the packaging and gently remove the plastic tape by using the pink pull tab. CAUTION: Do not touch the copper contacts or ink nozzles. Install the cartridge immediately upon removing the tape to prevent ink from drying in the nozzles. Figure 3: Removing the plastic tapec00034768.jpg
  4. Push the new print cartridge into the appropriate slot at a slight angle, until it clicks into place. CAUTION: Do not attempt to push the cartridge straight into the slot. It must slide in at a slight angle. Figure 4: Inserting the print cartridgec00034769.jpg
  5. Close the print-carriage access door.
Back to top Aligning the print cartridges The HP Officejet will prompt you to align the print cartridges every time you install a new print cartridge to assure high-quality output.
  1. When the message displays, press OK . The HP Officejet will print an alignment page.
  2. Place the alignment page face down on the left front corner of the glass with the top of the page facing the left side.
  3. Press OK . The HP Officejet will align the print cartridges and display Alignment Complete .

HP 5510: "Press OK to print Align Page" appears permanently, even after performing the alignment. Fixya advised removing power to reset the printer, but that doesn't help. I removed and reinserted ink...


Hi,

To simply bypass alignment, do the following:
Press and hold the Setup button.
Press the Up Arrow button. The printer should be ready to print.
If print quality is unacceptable after bypassing alignment, troubleshoot the problem as follows:
Make sure the printer is loaded with clean, unused, white paper. If the paper is not feeding properly, check the paper path. Click here to see how.
Remove and inspect the cartridges. Click here for instructions. If the cartridges are new, make sure the protective tape covering the nozzles has been removed.
Reinsert the cartridges into the printer. Press Enter to align the cartridges again if prompted.
If the problem continues, check the cartridge ink levels. Click here to see how. Both cartridges must have ink in them for successful alignment, so replace empty cartridges.
Watch the area inside the front of the printer as the alignment procedure runs. You should see a blue light below the cartridges as they move back and forth. If you do not see the blue light, click the link at the top of this page to contact HP. The printer needs to be serviced.
Compare the alignment page produced by the printer to the illustration below. If any of the colors are missing, run the Clean Print Cartridges utility. Click here for instructions.
Abbildung 1: Alignment page

If the problem continues, clean the contacts. Click here to see how.
If none of the steps above solve the problem, replace the cartridges or have the printer serviced. Click here to see how to decide whether to replace the cartridges or service the printer.

Thanks

HP Photosmart C3100 series


I just got off the HP help line.  After changing my black ink cartridge a test page was printing each time I turned the machine on.  This is very costly, in both time and ink as the cartridges themselves for this machine hold very little ink.  I tried to learn from HP tech how to turn off the test-print while keeping my color cartridge empty.  It turns out that you cant do it.  HP requires you to keep buying and using cartridges whether you need them or not.If you buy the color ink it will use it up in its testings.  And if you dont buy the color cartridge it will use up your black ink by printing the test each time you turn on the printer.  The printer was inexpensive sure, but I'm paying for it in wasted ink.
