Question about HP Printers & Copiers

1 Answer

HP 1210 all in one printer does not have a maintenance button to allow me to align cartridges. Prints landscape pages out of alignment; I have tried taking the cartridge out and putting it back but it does not automatically print a page and let me scan it to align the cartridge. How can I make this work?

On the printer hold down the CANCEL button then press and hold the ON/RESUME button until the CHECK PAPER and CHECK PRINT CARTRIDGE LIGHT both blink simultaneously.
When both lights are blinking press CANCEL, COPIES, PAPER TYPE, and COLOR START COPY one after the other. All this must be done in under 10 seconds for it to work. Once this sequence of buttons is completed correctly in under ten seconds an alignment page will print.

Trying to align heads, 5610 HP all-in-one


Hello,
This seems to be an issue with the alignment of the printer.
Remove both the cartridges from the printer and clean the cartridge contacts with a soft lightly moist cloth and then re-insert the cartridges. Unplug the USB cable of the all-in-one and then let the all-in-one perform the alignment process and once it prints the alignment page. Once the alignment page prints out, place the alignment page (With the printed side on the scanner glass) and then press the Scan button. the alignment process should complete successfully.

For more information, refer the below hp document.

Hpphotosmartc4380 the printing is badly out of line .How do yoy align the cartridges?


Hello,

You may want to run the alignment program again. Below are the steps as found on page 84 of the manual found here.

To align the print cartridges from the HP Photosmart Software
1.
In the HP Solution Center, click Settings, point to Print Settings, and then click
Printer Toolbox.
NOTE: You can also open the Printer Toolbox from the Print Properties dialog
box. In the Print Properties dialog box, click the Services tab, and then click
Service this device.
The Printer Toolbox appears.
2. Click the Device Services tab.
3. Click Align the Print Cartridges.
The HP All-in-One prints a print cartridge alignment sheet.
4. When prompted, ensure plain white letter or A4 paper is loaded in the input tray, then
press the button next to OK.
NOTE: If you have colored paper loaded in the input tray when you align the print
cartridges, the alignment will fail. Load unused plain white paper into the input
tray, and then try the alignment again.
The HP All-in-One prints a test page, aligns the print head, and calibrates the printer.
5. Load the page print side down on the right front corner of the glass, and then press
the button next to OK to scan the page.
When the On button stops flashing, the alignment is complete and the page can be
removed. Recycle or discard the page.

Prints too much


I am assuming you have Windows XP here. This quite often happens when you haven't aligned the cartridges. To do so go to
1. Start.
2. Settings (or Control Panel if you don't have settings).
3. Printers & Faxes.
4. Right click on HP PSC1210 (or whatever your machine is called)
5. Click on Properties.
6. Click Printing Preferences.
7. Click on the Services tab (top right).
8. Click on the big button with icon beside Service This Device.
9. Click the icon beside Align the print cartridges.
10. Finally, follow the process described. You will probably have a page print out which you then need to scan (make sure you scan it the right way).

After aligning is complete you will hopefully not get any more test pages (until you change the cartridges again that is).

Of course there may be another issue. If this doesn't fix the problem let me know and we can go from there.
