Question about HP Officejet 5610 All-In-One InkJet Printer

2 Answers

When I print to a label paper like a CD label the printer does not align with the template. If I align the cartridges it will work but only once and then it goes back to not being aligned.

    I have an HP Officejet 5610 All in One printer. I have always been able to print labels from the printer on label paper. Now the labels do not come out within the label template. If I align the cartridges I can print one page of labels but not after that. I have to repeat the process again. I would like to get back to the place where the printer prints correctly. Please advise.

You are right to think aligning the cartridges might correct this error. For some reason the registration on your machine is failing after printing the first sheet. But this could also be the result of a software setting that is not being maintained during the print job in process. I would begin by attempting to reset the printer, by following these instructions. Cancel the print job in the queue. Then attempt to print as usual and see if the problem recurs.
If so, work through this article from the HP online support site for your machine. It's possible that the alignment is not working because the scanner is not functioning correctly, in which case you may need to clean the machine by following these instructions. Many paper feed errors will also be corrected by cleaning your printer rollers as described.
You should check to see that the label setup in being maintained in the application you are printing from. Please consult this article and make sure the printing options for labels (instead of envelopes) are set correctly as the default for your printing operation. Then check the settings again after a page prints correctly.
It would also be worth a try to check and make sure you have the latest printer drivers from HP, and any special print drivers recommended by the manufacturer of the labels you are using. You can visit windows update and see if any custom drivers are offered for your printer, or follow instructions to update the drivers here and here.
Finally, please see this forum at HP. You are not the only person to experience this issue, and perhaps one of the responses given there will help you to solve the issue. If you're on Mac, see this article, and in general try to avoid using the custom print settings.
If none of these solutions corrects the situation, I recommend you follow the instructions for your OS to uninstall and reinstall the printer and software in the event that some essential files have been corrupted. Here are the user guides and setup instructions to follow if you choose to do so.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

This is a very common problem with labels, especially circular labels and this type of printer. First off, it's a bad idea to put a paper label on your CD / DVD in general, the main reason is that it makes the disc off balance, since now their is unevenly distributed weight across the top (where there is more ink it weighs more...). Then when you go to put it in a cd-rom drive the disc starts to spin, and with the new cd and dvd rom drives it spins very very fast. At high speeds it begins to wobble and then the disc can explode. Yes I know that probably sounds funny, but it's very dangerous and I've seen it happen at least 30 times on various occasions. Some cdroms even have warnings on them saying caution disc could explode. Go to youtube.com and put in "cdrom explode" the first video shows a great demonstration.

On top of that, labeled cds can get stuck in slot fed cd-roms and cd players very easily.

If you really want to label your cds / dvds you will want to get a printer that has the capability of actually printing to the disc itself. Google something like Casio CW-100-IH , or just lightscribe technology, that way you can label it from inside your burner.

There is no real way to fix your issue, you have to keep aligning it every time for it to work. Plus, like I said, it's not a good idea in general.

How do I make a CD label?


There is a user manual on the install disc, pdf-format. To get to the manual, insert the install disc and wait for the small window to appear. At the bottom are some options, one being "View User's Guide". Click that. Or you could access the pdf-file itself manually and copy it to your hard drive: After inserting the install disc, go to "My Computer", right-click on your writer drive, choose "Explore", double-click on the folder named "SE1", and look for a file called "SE1 Guide.pdf". Open it, or copy it and paste somewhere on your computer for future reference. Read Chapter 4 of the user guide - it is titled "CD&DVD LabelMaker". Here follows the chapter, illustrations excluded:

Chapter 4

Introduction

CD&DVD LabelMaker makes designing and printing disc labels

and CD/DVD inserts fast, simple, and fun. Customize labels with

your own photos, text, video stills, and music playlists. Hundreds of

professionally-designed themes are included inside. Supports

label paper templates by Avery®, Memorex®, Neato®, CD
Stomper®, and Direct to CD/DVD Printing with supported printers.

Getting Started

When you first start the program, you're prompted to select the type of

project you want to design and print: Disc Label, Jewel Case Insert,
and DVD Case Insert.

Once you've selected the type of project, you'll be prompted to select

the paper to which you'll be printing. Select your template from the list,

and then click OK. (You can also change your project type by selecting
a new one from the top pull-down.)

Designing your label

You can customize various sections of your label/insert depending

on the selected paper type/template. The main workspace in the

Design Label tab starts by focusing on one section of the label/

insert. For example, if you're using paper that has two disc labels, the
focus will be zoomed onto one of those labels.

Adjusting your view

Notice the two up/down arrows on the left side of the screen. When

applicable, you can click either arrow to shift the focus to the top/

bottom of the page. Click the Paper View button in the lower left

corner to see a small thumbnail of the page. Click the section that
you'd like to edit, and it will appear in the main workspace.

Changing the Background

The right side of the screen lets you change the paper background,

either by applying a color (Use Color) or graphic design (Use
Theme).

To change the background color, select Use Color. A color palette will

appear. Click the color you want. The color will then appear on the

label/insert in the main workspace. The palette is fairly robust. If you

select a new color that doesn't appear on the grid, you can add it to

your My Favorite Colors.

To delete a custom color, select the color, then click the - icon.

To add a design, select Use Theme. A pull-down at the top lets you

select from a variety of categories. Each category offers a variety of

designs. To select a design to apply to your project, simply click it.

Click the button to the right of the pull-down to search for additional
designs online.

Printing your project
A print preview displays your project.

If there are certain sections/components that you'd prefer to exclude

when printing, simply click that object (it will appear dulled in color).

If you change your mind and decide to print the object, simply click the

object again and it will become active for printing.

Print with Mask: This option is only applicable when printing disc

labels. If you notice that your prints aren't aligning properly with your

labels, uncheck this box. Instead of printing over the circular area of the

label only, a square version of each photo will print to cover more area
and fill the disc label.

Select Your Printer: From the Printer pull-down, choose your

printer.

Modify Your Printer Settings: Click the Printer Setup button to

view/modify your printer settings.

Set the Number of Copies: Use the arrow buttons to increase/

decrease the number of copies you'd like to print, or key in the value in
the available box.

Hi! I want to align my printing cartridges on my HP Deskjet 4260 and have forgotten how. Can you help?


Hey there and welcome to FixYa:

In order to align your print cartridges, all you need to do is:

1. load some letter sized paper in the paper tray

2. open the printer software that came with your printer

3. Click FILE, then PRINT

4. next, go ahead and click PROPERTIES (sometimes labeled PREFERENCES)

5. click the FEATURES tab, and then click the PRINTER SERVICES button. This opens up the printer toolbox.

6. Click ALIGN THE PRINT CARTRIDGES

7. Click ALIGN, and then follow the onscreen instructions.

This will print a test page that aligns that printer cartridges and calibrates the printer. Easy, huh?

Here is the manual
, and if you need anything else don't hesitate to ask!

Happy Holidays,

Printing on templates


This is normally set through the page margins within the software you are using not the actual printer settings. MS Word has templates for various Avery labels, but I've found after loading the template you have to fine tune the margins for your printer. Use plain paper to print test pages and hold them over your card stock to check alignment.

I think that the CD/DVD printing ability depends on the software that epson bundles with the printer.
