Dell v305w Alignment Error

I keep getting an alignment error saying to remove tape from the ink cartridge or troubleshoot. I checked over the cartridge and the ink is blotting on to a tissue just fine. I even ran a "clean ink cartridge" thing and the damn printer still won't align, and apparently I can't print anything until it aligns correctly. What do I do now (besides try not to throw it out the window)?!?

Try cleaning the Gold section of the cartridges with a wet paper towel.

Unplug the printer and clean the gold contacts on the printer where the cartridge meets up to the printer with a wet paper towel. Do this till the towels come back clean.

Dry both the contacts on printer and cartridges.

Allow at least 30 mins for the printer to dry.

Plug the printer back in and reinstall the cartridges.

Align the cartridges,

Hope this helps.

I just got new ink cartridges for my Dell V305 and it says that there is an alignment problem that can not be automatically fixed. There is no tape on the cartridges. What to do?


Hi

I believe the the carriage of the ink cartridge had jammed. Open the cartridge door and turn off your printer. Move the print head from left to right and from right to left. Close the printer door and try to print again if the error message disappear.

Please let me know if you need more help

alignment error usually means that one cartridge is not printing, or paper tray is empty.
try removing both cartridges then stamp each printhead on some folded tissue paper. You should get one solid strip of black ink with the black cart and 3 colour strips with the colour cart.
If you don't...there is your problem.

good luck

Dell V305w Printer Alignment problem. Remove tape from cartridges or check troubleshooting. Press > to continue. Ink cartridges reset, tape removed, trays aligned. HELP!


In my case this happened with black cartridge out of ink, colour cartridge low; replaced black: had permanent alignment problem, though test print looked OK; wouldn't print black. Replaced colour cartridge, then it all worked OK, straightaway!

Error msg says 'Alignment problem. Remove tape from cartridge or check trouble shooting. How do I remove tape from cartridge?


A brand-new, never-inserted-into-the-printer, ink-cartridge will have a small piece of tape over part of the mechanism, to prevent the ink from drying-out while it sits on the store's shelf. If you inserted a brand-new cartridge, without removing that tape, just remove the cartridge, remove the tape, and re-insert the cartridge.

Error after reloading color ink


Remover Black and color cartridges. Place small paper towel to protect ink outlet on bottom of printer. Use WD-40 spray on copper surfaces,both sides(Blk& Color). Dry surfaces with paper towel. remove small towel placed in bottom . Reinstall both cartridges. This cleared my 1102 error. Die Rote Baron!
