Press enter to align cartridges

Hi
My HP PSC 950 All-In-One Inkjet has a message "Press enter to align cartridges" I have done this a lot of times and it won't go away. It won't let me copy or fax. I used the maintance area to clean the cartridge, I used q-tips and cleaned inside where I put the cartridge. I did refill the black cartridge myself, which I have done in the past and had no problems. I did not refill the color cartridge, but it is in the machine. I blew the machine out with air. Could you give me any other ideas of what to do next?

    I changed my cartridges and am only getting the message to align the cartridges when I try to copy. If I print from my computer or scan, it works fine. I tried to press enter and setup at the same time and it did not work.



    Any other suggestions?

    Yes I have had the same problem and have done all the same things you guys did. Pressing enter and setup at the same time worked for me. Thanks!

    I have the same problem. Pressing enter first then setup worked for me. I tried the keys simultaneously and it did not work. Thanks for the info.

I topped off the ink and pressed enter and set up at the same time...I didn't have to do the page alignment again and my copies seemed pretty good. Thank you to the site for the tips!!! Happy Day connien2003

    I used the suggestion posted here but with one adjustment. I pressed "enter" FIRST and quickly pressed "setup" which cleared the "align cartridges" message and allowed me to print. Pressing both buttons absolutely simultaneously did not work for me. I saved money here. I checked some other sites before finding Fixya. They all charged for their services. Thanks.

You may be doing everything right except the very last thing.

After replacing the cartridges, your product display will ask to do a cartridge alignment. Press ENTER on the control panel to align the print cartridges.

You must allow your printer to finish this procedure.

Message on my printer says (press entre to align


You need to blot the cartridges on a paper towel and make sure all the colors are showing, It won't complete the alignment until it can see all the colors on the alignment sheet. Sometimes you need to blot on a damp paper towel to get them flowing.

My hp psc2175 is keep asking "press enter to align cartridges", even though I did many times and it printed many time. I don't know what to do with it.


Read the manual. Or check online. Often when it wants you to align the cartridges, it then wants to scan the page that just printed.

Align cartridge issue


With this printer, we find, if the scanner mirror is dirty, it will not align. You will need to take the scanner glass out and clean glass and mirrors.

NOTE: If the fix doesn't work, you don't find answers to fix it and are going to get rid of it, please contact me, I would consider purchasing it from you.

Good Luck,
Jennifer
