SOURCE: Printer Alignment Failed in HP C5280

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.

With these types of printers they will use all 4 colors to make black unless you configure it other wise. The link below will take you to the printers support page.

Follow the instructions given and that should take care of it. If you have any other questions feel free to ask.

The outside of the product might look different, but the steps are similar for the same for the HP Photosmart 3100, 3200, and 3300 All-in-One series products. If you have trouble viewing the video or to view the video in a different size, click here to play the video (in English) on YouTube. If these steps resolved the issue , there is no need to continue troubleshooting. If the issue persists , see the next step. Step three: Clean and reinstall the cartridges If the contacts on a cartridge are dirty or do not seat correctly, the alignment might fail. Follow these steps in the order presented to clean and reinstall the cartridges.

Open the cartridge door. Squeeze the tab below the black cartridge on the far left side of the carriage, and then lift the cartridge latch. 1 - Cartridge latch for the black cartridge 2 - Cartridge latches for the color cartridges Remove the cartridge by pulling it toward you and out of its slot. CAUTION: Do not remove multiple cartridges at the same time. Remove, clean, and then reinstall each cartridge one at a time.

Dip a clean foam rubber swab or lint-free cloth into distilled water, and then squeeze any excess water from it. NOTE: Hold the cartridge by its handle.

Clean only the copper-colored contacts. 1 - Copper-colored contacts Slide the cartridge back into the empty slot.

Press Setup Press 5 , and then press 1 . The Tools menu displays. Click Display Ink Gauge . The gauges for the six cartridges display. Check the gauge for empty or almost empty cartridges, and then replace any you find. The product automatically performs an alignment and prints an alignment page.

Step five: Replace the cartridges Follow these steps to replace any cartridges that are empty or low on ink. Open the cartridge door. Squeeze the tab below the black cartridge on the far left side of the carriage, and then lift the cartridge latch.
1 - Cartridge latch for the black cartridge 2 - Cartridge latches for the color cartridges Remove the cartridge by pulling it toward you and out of its slot. CAUTION: Do not replace multiple cartridges at the same time. Replace each cartridge one at a time. Do not leave a cartridge outside the HP All-in-One for more than 30 minutes. Remove the new cartridge from its packaging, and then, holding it by the handle, slide the ink cartridge into the empty slot. Slide the new cartridge forward into the empty slot. Repeat 2 through 5 for each of the cartridges. Close the cartridge door, and then try to align the product again. If these steps resolved the issue , there is no need to continue troubleshooting. If the issue persists , see the next step. Step six: Reset and relocate the product A power reset drains power from the product and returns the product to the same settings after restarting. Moving the product to another location and plugging it directly into a wall outlet can eliminate any potential power deficiencies that might prevent a successful alignment. Make sure that you have the product turned on. If necessary, press the Power button to turn on the product. With the product turned on, disconnect the power cord from the back of the product. Relocate the All-in-One to a different power outlet, preferably in a separate room Plug the power cord directly into the wall outlet. Do not use a power strip. Reconnect the power cord to the back of the product. Press the Power button to turn on the product. Load plain white paper into the tray. Try the alignment again.

My HPDeskjet says alignment failed. Cartridges are set to default quality. I just replaced the ink cartridge.


Are they refills? HP will not accept refills at all . I know from experience.
If they are HP cartridges then the print head is probably clogged. ( the big square tray that the cartridges fit into)
You'll have to remove it (just a latch or clip. Look in manual) and replace it. They can't be cleaned. I've tried on several different models.

How do you install an ink cartridge on an HP Officejet 4315 All in one Printer that I have had given me, with everything but the instruction book. Can you also confirm that the cartridge numbers are 27...


Hi there,
Working with print cartridges
To ensure the best print quality from HP All-In-One, you will need to perform some simple maintenance procedures and when prompted by a message on the display replace the print cartridges.

A) Handle the print cartridges
Hold the print cartridges by their black plastic sides, with the label on top. Do not touch the copper-colored contacts or the ink nozzles.
Note : Handle the print cartridges carefully. Dropping or jarring cartridges can cause temporary printing problems or even permanent damage.

B) To replace the print cartridges
1) Make sure the HP All-In-One is off whenyou open the print cartridge door to access the print cartridges, the Hp A-ll-In-One will not release the cartridges for changing. You might damage the HP All-In -One. If the print cartridges are not docked safely on the right side when you try to remove them.
2) Open the print cartridge door.
The print carriage should now move to the far right side of the HP All-In-One. If the print cartridge does not move to the right side, close the door. Then trun the HP-All-In-One offm and then on again.
3) Wait until the print carriage is idle and silent, and then lightly press down in a print cartridge to release it.
If you are replacing the tri-color print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the left.
If you are replacing the black print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the right.
4)Pull the print cartridge toward you out of its slot.
5. If you are removing the print cartridge because it is low or out of ink, recycle the print cartridge.
6. Remove the new print cartridge from its packaging and, being careful to touch only the black plastic, gently remove the plastic tape by using the pink pull tab.
Caution Do not touch the copper-colored contacts or ink nozzles.
Touching these parts can result in clogs, ink failure, and bad electrical connections.
7. Slide the new print cartridge forward into the empty slot. Then gently push on the upper part of the print cartridge forward until it clicks into the socket.
If you are installing the tri-color print cartridge, slide it into the left slot.
If you are installing a black print cartridge, slide it into the right slot.
8. Close the print cartridge door.
9. If you installed a new print cartridge, the print cartridge alignment process begins.
10. Make sure you have plain paper loaded in the input tray, and then press OK.
The HP All-in-One prints a print cartridge alignment sheet.
11. Load the print cartridge alignment sheet print side down and top first in the center of the document feeder tray, and then press OK.
The HP All-in-One aligns the print cartridges. Recycle or discard the print cartridge alignment sheet.

Align the print cartridges
The HP All-in-One prompts you to align cartridges every time you install or replace a print cartridge. You can also align the print cartridges at any time from the control panel or by using the software you installed with the HP All-in-One. Aligning the print
cartridges ensures high-quality output.
To align the print cartridges from the control panel when prompted
1. Load letter, A4, or legal unused plain white paper into the input tray.
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. If prompted, choose your country/region, and then click Contact HP for information on calling for technical support.
The HP All-in-One prints a print cartridge alignment sheet.
2. Load the print cartridge alignment sheet print side down and top first in the center of the document feeder tray, and then press OK.
The HP All-in-One aligns the print cartridges. Recycle or discard the print cartridge alignment sheet.
To align the cartridges from the control panel at any time

2. Press Setup.

Can you set default to print using only black ink?


Wow, what an incredibly unhelpful answer. Thanks, HP shill.

The answer is no. Selling ink is how printer companies make money, and they will do everything possible to make you buy more ink, even when you don't need it.

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!
