The alignment page was not placed properly on the scanner. You can follow the instructions here http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01367400&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=3390949

Try the alignment again it should work. Good Luck

My hp photosmart c4780 won't align because is keeps saying that the alignment plot in the scanner is skewed


If you have had paper jam and not replaced the rear paper grey plastic retainer correctly or somehow it has become loosened the paper will twist on entry and the printing will be askew. Sometimes not loading paper. It will then also not align when replacing cartridge. Had this problem, took out the retainer that has two plastic points that should locate in the retaining holes and pushed it back. Paper jam, printouts and alignment was then fine. Took me months to figure out as it was printing, just not very straight

Installed new black ink cartridge in HP PSC 2110 color printer, scanner, copier. Followed instructions to align cartridges. Printer printed paper that had additional instructions. Placed second printed...


hello, machine will need to finish calibration so it will not come back, so if machine failes it could be that the color cartridge is not printing, because this machine uses yellow to calibrate with.

My alignment is skewed on my hp 4680 scanner


Try turning the alignment page around 180 degrees from the way the direction says. That FINALLY solved my problem! The diagram on the printer cartidge implies the page should go one way, but the illustration on an HP link shows the other direction.

Print head seems to be out of alignment. Lines of print seem skewed and blurry. Edges of pictures are not in alignment.


Run the alignment in the maintenance software. Each new print head must be aligned.
Possibly release and remove the print cartridge and reinsert it. Maybe it is skewed.

Trying to align heads, 5610 HP all-in-one


Hello,
This seems to be an issue with the alignment of the printer.
Remove both the cartridges from the printer and clean the cartridge contacts with a soft lightly moist cloth and then re-insert the cartridges. Unplug the USB cable of the all-in-one and then let the all-in-one perform the alignment process and once it prints the alignment page. Once the alignment page prints out, place the alignment page (With the printed side on the scanner glass) and then press the Scan button. the alignment process should complete successfully.

For more information, refer the below hp document.

I changed the black ink cartridge as per instructions and the printer printed an alignment paper which i then placed in the printer for alignment but the alignment failed


the page should be absolutely new.and the scanner glass should be absolutely cleaned.and 1 main thing u replaced your black cartridge.but if your colour cartridge is empty it will not accept the allignment complete thing.it will show allignment failed as the particular colour is missing in your allignment sheet which is required to get the allignment complete.

Alignment failed notice


Could be one of two things....

1 - you may have bad cartridges...when the machine does an alignment it looks for specific marks on the paper...ie..green check marks before each line etc...if the correct marks are not there you will get an alignment failure...if the green check marks are there etc then you have a different problem...

2- spot sensor on the side of carriage is not working...this is the little blue/green light that comes on during alignment. Its what reads the markings on paper so if the markings are correctly there and you still get this error then the spot sensor needs to be replaced. Simple fix that u can do. We sell the spot sensor for $15

Change cartridge (color first) before doing anything.
