Hi there,

Solution
Load unused plain white letter or A4 paper into the input tray.
Press the Setup button. 
Press the down arrow button to select Tools and then press OK . 
Press the down arrow to select Align Print Cartridges and then press OK . An alignment page prints. 
After the success or failure message displays, click OK to continue. Recycle or discard the alignment page. 
Cause
An incorrect type of paper is loaded in the input tray. If you have color or photo paper loaded in the input tray when you align the printer, the alignment might fail. It might also fail if the paper has already been printed on.


Good Luck!!
Thanks

Hp all in one printer - printer head alignment problem


Try pressing the reset or off button for a few seconds. Failing that, unplug the printer for 15 min. Let me know if it works, if not, then I will guide you through other steps.

Will not copy


This means one of the cartridges is defective, they cant align if they cant print. What i did to fix this problem is insert 2 working cartridges and get it to align properly, even if they are low on ink, then lift the cover and the cartridges will move to the center. When this happens pull the power cable out, then insert the full non functioning cartridge. Plug the power cable back in. I tried this with a color cartridge, the color cartridge was non functioning but i was able to print in black. Basically you align the cartridges and then swap them so the printer thinks they are still aligned. The color still doesnt work and it is probably a defective color cartridge.

I installed a new cartridge and I keep getting an error message to remove the tape, which I did before the install. The alignment test fails.


Printer normally does the alignment printing whenever you do something on the cartridges (removing, reseating or replacing). Try to remove the cartridges from the printer. Clean the nozzles using a damp paper towel, if necessary. Close the cover. Unplug the printer from the power source. Plug it back in after 10-15 seconds. When it's ready, insert the cartridges. Let the printer print the alignment page again. Let it finish the whole page without cancelling it.
Check if the problem persists.

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
