Hi,

The issue that you are experiencing might be due to various reasons.

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.

Please check the same and try the below given instructions to get the issue resolved.

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.

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 :

Note:
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.

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.
This should resolve the issue.

Wish you good luck!

Regards,
Lawrence

After installing new ink cartridge. my multi purpose offic jet 6110 keeps saying "failed to align cartridges" though the cartridges seem to be installed properly. any ideas?


HI

try removing all the cartridges and restart the printer ,it will ask to install the cartridges,install them one by one and then see if it prints an alignment sheet,if it doesnt print it this way there is an option to align print cartridges in the printer drivers, goto the control panel--->printers and faxes--->rt click the printer icon and goto properties,under properties there should be an option for either maintenance or service this device button,when you click it ,it gives an option fro aligning the cartrdiges,

Won't align because it says that the "paper is too narrow".


On the right side of the carriage at the bottom is where the media sensor is. If you dampen a q-tip with water and wipe the underside of that sensor you will see ink come off onto the q-tip. That sensor is on the right side of the ink carrier and the light shines down onto the paper. The lens gets covered with ink and needs cleaning...

My printer wont print it keeps saying press enter to alein cartridge


I just noticed in the link to your forum item that additional text appears that does not appear in the item itself. It looks like you are getting a message telling you to press Enter to align your print carriage. This is a common step after you replace an ink cartridge. According to HP.com, here's what you are supposed to do:

"A message will appear in the front panel display requesting that the ink cartridges be aligned. Press Enter to start the cartridge alignment. Two pages will print. Following the instructions printed on the second page, place the first page on the scanner glass in the lower-right corner and then press Enter to finish aligning the cartridges. Remove the page from the scanner glass when complete".

The link to those instructions is as follows:

Replace the Print Cartridge

Just follow the instructions I posted above in italics and you should be good to go. Good luck.
