Probable, but remember, the things we love we also have to depart with.
try a service centre to see if it is worth the money.

Why after installing new ink cartridges, the system says to realign scanner. never saw this before.

Realignment procedure is typical when replacing ink cartridges. It is a pretty straight-forward process and takes only a few moments. Most printers provided detailed instructions on the alignment page it prints - otherwise Google your printer for instructions. Alignment ensures that there are no gaps or white lines in text or images.

Replacing ink on an epsom wf7010 with generic ink

Try Genuine Epson cartridges and if the white strips disappear then you know it's the generic carts. If not then clean the printer heads, if that doesn't do it then get a new printer.

My Lexmark 5600 series will not align properly. Ink levels are both within operating levels, above 75% Will not print documents. The LCD screen flickers up and down, pixels are all scrambled. I have...

Pull out the cartridges and clean any residual glue on the bottom of them by scratching them with your fingernail. Wipe the contacts in the printer and the cartridge with a LINT FREE cloth. Gently replace the cartridges. If they don't go in easily then you're doing it wrong. Clean and realign the cartridges. If these steps don't work then the only thing you can do is hit the cancel (red x) button on the printer to bypass the message for every print job you do.

Toner cartiridges are full but pages are printing blank

Turn your printer off. Disconnect from your computer by disconnection of cable, from the back of the printer. Unplug your printer from the wall.

Remove your print cartridges and gently wipe off the connections (copper or brass colored) with a dry lint-free cloth. Check to see if the bottom of the ink gates (holes where ink comes out) are clogged. Wipe gently with an almost dry but damp cloth, once or twice. Ink will continually come out, so only do this once or twice.

Plug printer back into the wall, connect power cable to printer. Turn printer on.

HP Photosmart will run through a series of checklists. First, it will ask if you would like to "realign" the printer heads. Press "enter" or "yes" and allow heads to realign. If you always have your printer and computer on, this realignment never happens, therefore the heads where the ink is dispersed from the modules will get clogged, and ink will never come out.

Officejet J5780 Every time I turn printer on I get error reading to align cartridge. Tried several cart. and get same reading

One "reset the printer" solution says:

1. unplug power cord
2. wait 30 seconds
3. hold down "#" key AND "6" key, plug in power cord and turn on

this theoretically should clear it. i had a similar problem with an HP 6100 multifunction, and the "reset" steps with that were similar (different keys) and worked.

Horizontal Color alignment will not align

Green color means that there is contanimation from the blue and yellow inks. Try to look inside the printer to where the printhead rests when not in use and see if there is alot of ink there. There may be green ink on the sponge there that may be attaching itself to the bottom of the printhead.

Hope this helps!

Printer issue

I can only suggest that you should use genuine HP ink carts. Try all new carts and realign again. Hopefully it is under warranty. HP is good at exchanging.
