Question about HP OfficeJet 6110 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I'm having problems after putting in a new color ink cartridge. I can't get it to run the align cartridge function. It starts to print a page and only prints something at the top of the page and then says it failed and to try it again. I've tried many times and it continues to fail even after power down and re-booting the system. Any suggestions?Sandi

I understand that you are receiving the message to align print cartridges when ever you print.
This happens due to various of reasons.
Below are the possible causes of the issue that you are experiencing with.
The most common reason is an ink cartridge that has one of the following problems:
1.One of the print cartridges is low or out of ink. Black and all three colors must available.
2.The paper has already been printed on or is colored paper.
3.Protective tape on a new print cartridge has not been removed.
4.Contacts on the print cartridge are not meeting the contacts in the print carriage correctly.
5.Cartridge is remanufactured or refilled. Refilled or remanufactured ink cartridges may have been damaged during the refilling process or have clogged ink nozzles.
6.The print cartridge is defective.
So, make sure that ink cartridges have sufficient amount of ink and are of genuine HP should not be refilled or remanufactured.
Clean the cartridges by following the below given instructions:
Using a clean, dry lint-free cloth (a coffee filter works well), wipe the cartridge contacts, from the top to the bottom. The contact area of the cartridge should be rubbed briskly to remove the waxy lubricant material from the gold contacts. The contacts inside the printer may also require cleaning. Using a clean, dry, lint-free cloth, gently wipe the contacts, from the top to the bottom.
Align the print cartridges by following below given instrucions:
To align the cartridges from All-in-One
1. Press Setup.
2. Press 5, then press 2. This selects the Maintenance menu, then selects the Align Print Cartridge option. A page prints to confirm alignment. You can either discard or recycle this page.
Even if the issue persists, bypass the alignment by following the below given instructions:
Press Enter and Setup simultaneously when align message is prompted on the All-in-One.
Please remove the All-in-One Printer from the Power Surge Protector and plug it directly into a wall Power outlet, as the surge protector may not provide enough power to printer.
Please perform the step given below to power cycle the unit after removing the print cartridges from the printer:
1. Verify that the unit is switched on. Unplug the all-in-one from power and disconnect the USB cable from the computer.
2. Wait 30 seconds.
3. Plug in the power only
4. Repeat steps 2-3 two more times.
5. On the third time after plugging the unit into power, reconnect the USB cable from the all-in-one to your computer.
Reset the All-in-One to the factory default settings by using these instructions:
1. Unplug the power cable from printer when the printer is powered on and wait for 20 seconds.
2. Then, press and hold # and 6 while plugging in the power cord.
Continue holding until it displays Semi Full Reset message in the front panel of the All-in-One.
A semi-full reset will do the following:
The user settings to the factory defaults, Language and country settings on some models, Fax logs, Fax headers, Fax speed dial information.
This should resolve the issue.

I tried to clean & realign but it stills shows an error. HP is no help. I guess you need to align every time until you run out of ink & get a new cartridge. Why won't HP admit a problem & replace the cartridges?
