    My psc2210 thinks its a psc2205! This is what it reports when doing a self test - consequently it won't recognise updates to it's operating system. Otherwise, it works perfectly. I'd like it to reset to a psc2210!

    I've done all the advised rest tests - no success. Perhaps it needs a new PCB installed, and I guess that costs more than the machine is now worth!

    A real paradox! Fix or replace?

    i used a new cartridge and now it will print from the computer, but won't print copies.

    Yes, I think because my color cartridge is low, it can't perform the test. however, this has happened before and I found the solution somewhere on the web. still searching...

    Problem

    The following error message appears on the LCD panel on top of the printer after you insert a cartridge:
    Press enter to align cartridges
    . You press
    Enter
    , but the error message does not go away. The printer will not print.




    Solution


    To bypass the cartridge alignment, do the following:






    1. Press and hold the
      Setup
      button.




    2. Press the
      Options
      button. The printer should be ready to print.






    If the print quality is unacceptable after bypassing alignment, follow the steps below until the error is corrected.



    Step 1 - Check the paper
    Make
    sure the printer is loaded with clean, unused, white paper. If the
    paper is not feeding properly, check the paper path. For information
    about how to do that, see the instructions under "If the paper does not
    feed correctly" at the end of this document.



    Step 2 - Remove and inspect the cartridges















    NOTE:



    The "problem" cartridge is the cartridge indicated by the error message.








    1. Turn on the unit, then open the print carriage access door. The print carriage moves to the center of the unit.


    2. Press down lightly on the top of the ink cartridge latch and pull the lower section of the latch out to release the cartridge.

Lexmark x7170 changed ink cartridge. test sheet comes up great, print something and it says ink low. i tried to shut off 5x's to maybe reset/ reinstalled ink cartridges same message. cleaned heads


The Lexmark x7170 should let you continue printing with the ink cartridge regardless of the estimated ink with most cartridges. The only exception to this is if the cartridges are part of Lexmark's returns programme. I would advise removing the cartridge and checking for small text stating "Return Programme Cartridge" on the label. If this is present sadly there is no way of continuing, apart from buying a new cartridge.

With regards to the low ink estimate, am I right in assuming you are using a refilled or remanufactured ink cartridge? If so this is unavoidable but should not prevent you from printing until the ink physically runs out.

HP PCS1402 keeps printing test sheet on start up


Have u recently changed ur ink cartridge ? If so the printer is printing an alignment page . Turn it off then on , so it prints the alignment page. load the alignment page on the scanner glass and press the "Scan" button to complete the alignment. Once the alignment has completed the alignment page will not be printed again until you change the next cartridge. See your user manual for details.

Hi, Wonder can you help my printer keeps printing off test page everytime it is turned on. this is only happening since i changed the cartridge, never did this before. thanks


Hi,

Your printer is printing alignment pages, because the cartridge alignment was not completed since you replaced them. Follow the below steps to complete alignment.

  1. Turn the printer OFF and then turn back ON.
  2. Wait until the alignment sheet prints out fully.
  3. Place the alignment test page over the scanner glass.
  4. Press start color scan button.
  5. The printer "power" light will start flashing, indication the alignment process.
  6. After the printer stops flashing, turn off and then ON the printer.It will not print any test pages further.
We need to run alignment test every-time while we replace ink cartridges.

Riztech

When I print an excel page showing gridlines the lines are not straight but wavy and some of the numbers on the sheet are not visible


Cartridges are not alighned.
Remove one of the cartridges and insert it back.
The printer will print an alighment page. There are instructions on the page to place it on the scanner and to press the Scan button.
For alighment to be successful the printer has not to missing any ink.
Instead of removing and inserting a cartridge, you can use Maintenance tab in Printer preferencies to strat printhead alighment.

Forgive me for asking this, but roughly speaking about 80 to 95% of problems involving ink or toner are resolved by the following:
Are you using a factory new ink cartridge supplied by the manufacturer of the printer?
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
If you are using the manufacturer’s new ink cartridges, then please contact their technical support group. Factory new cartridges usually have warranties on them.

but listen the procedure.

the allignment will start.the printer will read the page.and allignment will get completed.then after u ON the printer it will not give you such problem till u replace the cartridges.

Not responding to PC instructions to print data


Hi,

You need to load the PRINTED ALIGNMENT PAGE on the scanner glass, then press on "OK" button. It should start scanning the alignment page. That way, you are completing the PROCESS of ALIGNMENT.

Thank you so much.

Hp psc 950ink cartridge alignment


In my experience, the <align cartridge> happens when you change ink, has a [don't do {HP chat would be a help}] and wouldn't let you print or scan either unless completed.

normally prints a [2] sheet, then asks to scan it.

for photo quality, override isn't reccommended.

does copy work at all?

scan, save, print might work
