- Press and hold the "*" key. - Press the "#" key and release both keys. - Display should say "Enter Special Key Combo" then release the keys and press "1", "2" and "3" buttons in sequence. - then you will get few options, now look for an option that says "System Menu or System Information" using arrows keys. - Press "OK" on it & now look for "semi full re-set and press ok". - Now printer will turn off and will turn on automatically after few seconds. - Now printer will align it automaticaly.
There are several special key combo for ex. 1-2-4 and 3-2-9 also 1-2-7 depending on the purpose of using it.
My suggestion would be, Remove the cartridges, Clean the golden ( electrical contacts ) with lint free cloth Put the cartridges back and check if the error message disappears If not, Try the Full reset following these steps Disconnect the power cord from back of printer ( while printer is on ) While holding the # and 6 button, connect the cord ( if you do this reset, the printer will loose all the memory it has stored like fax logs, will get disconnected from Wireless network )
The error message is likely due to a cartridge expiry date and certain printers do not accept such expired cartridges from present date. Try replacing such cartridge

Press and release the "OK" button. Display should say "Hardware failure status". If not there already, Arrow Key over to "Hardware failure status", Press and release the "OK" button. Display should say "Hardware failure status: Clear. Press OK to clear". Press and release the "OK" Button. Message changes to "Hardware failure status Cleared. Press Cancel to continue". Press and release the "CANCEL" button as many times as necessary, so that, either the "Welcome to Photosmart Express" screen appears, or, the "Ink System Failure" screen appears. PLEASE DO NOT TRY TO PRINT AT THIS STAGE.
Using the Power Button, turn the unit OFF and unplug the power cable from back of the printer and wall outlet. Wait 30 seconds for the power to get discharged and then plug the power cable into the wall outlet first and then into the back of the printer. Turn the unit on. The printer may display message "USE POWER BUTTON TO SHUTDOWN THE PRINTER" followed by "PRESS OK TO CONTINUE". Press OK. The Printer will start the "ONE TIME INK INITIALIZATION PROCESS". Allow this process to complete and do not interrupt. Once the initialization process is complete, the printer will print out a Diagnostic Page. Good Luck!
