Try manually shutting it down, take the cartridge out and then put back in, restart printer and see if problem is still occurring.

Print cartridge will not align


This could be an issue from remanufacturing. Try a new cartridge from HP.

Many manufacturers have hardware in the cartridge and the printer that tell the printer "new cartridge". When a cartridge is refilled, you can have that giving a "bad" message.

I wish that I could be of more help.

My printer keeps printing the test page every time it's switched on. I have C3180 all in one printer.


That is a "configuration-option" -- navigate through the controls on the printer itself to disable that option; or, just leave the printer on -- it will go to "power-save" mode after a few minutes of non-usage.

Everytime I switch on the printer,it starts alignment and prints a page


Try removing the two cartridges and power off unit.
Disconnect the power source and allow the unit to set for a few minutes.
Reconnect the power source and wait for error messages to come up on unit or computer.
Re-install the first cartridge and wait for the next message.
Again, insert the last cartridge and wait for the unit to acknowledge alignment procedure.
Answer yes to alignment and complete procedure.
After a complete alignment procedure, the unit should register the completion of setup.
Hope this works for you.

Always starts up and does an alignment page.


  1. After installing a new print cartridge, wait at least 20 seconds for the print cartridge alignment process to start.
  2. Wait for the print cartridge alignment process to fully complete.
  3. Make sure that the alignment page has printed on plain, white paper that has no other printing on it. If you need to create a new alignment page, load the tray with letter or A4 unused plain white paper and turn the product off and on again to create the page.
    after the alignment page prints then place the alignment sheet on the scanner glass and press the ok button

For some reason, you printer is lock on the alignment mode.
You can try removing power from the printer.
Remove both cartridges, unplug printer.
Wait 15 minutes and plug printer back into the electrical outlet.
Turn on printer.
Wait for printer to stop.
Reinstall cartridges.

Hp 2110 All in One Printer


Does the machine ask you to "align" the print cartridges when you turn the machine back on? If the alignment page when finished printing is missing a key color (say yellow), then the alignment will not succeed.
