Photosmart 5580. How do I turn off the annoying

Photosmart C5580. How do I turn off the annoying " align printer cartridge" message? 

Every time I switch the black ink cartridge for the Extra color ( #99 ) cartridge the damn printer wants to waste more ink and paper printing a test page. I want to turn this off.

Because it is a photo printer it knows that the print heads must be aligned for optimum reproduction. You get a new print head with each cart.

For the amount of ink a test page uses I can't see the reason for complaint. If you begrudge the miniscule amount of ink and are not bothered about the best possible printing then just ignore it.

    HP was SUED because the printers were saying cartridges were empty when in fact they were NOT. This was fraudulent to get people to buy more ink. I just replaced a black cartridge and there is no way to "ignore" it. Who the "L" needs "optimum reproduction" for a stupid simple print out? I for one, will NEVER buy another HP printer again!

Please remove the cartridges from the printer. Take a dry lint free paper towel and gently wipe the contacts on the back of the cartridge (not the bottom from where ink is present). Wipe the contacts inside the printer (on cartridge carrier). Please snap the cartridges back into the cartridge carrier and please try to print a printer self test.

Good Luck!!!!!

Myhp photosmart c5580 all-inone print cartridge alinment failed what do I do


1. Get a damp paper towel.
2. Set the ink cartridge right side up on the damp paper towel so that the ink nozzles are against the towel and hold the cartridge in this position for about 15 seconds.
3. Now wipe the print head (on the bottom where the ink comes out) across in one direction only (left to right) until it looks clean.
4. Next dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure that the ink is flowing.
5. Snap the cartridges back into the printer. And try doing the Alignment again!!!!!
Good Luck!!!!!

Turn off the Printer and Unplug it from the Power Supply.
Remove the Cartridges from the Printer!!!!!
On the Backside of the Cartridge you would see a Copper Stripe, Wipe the Copper Stripe using a Paper Towel!
Reinsert the Cartridges and Restart the Printer.
Good Luck!!!

Error-messages? What happens? What does not happen?

Did you refill the ink-cartridges yourself, or did you take it to a company that does the refilling?
