Question about HP OfficeJet 6110 All-In-One InkJet Printer

3 Answers

Paper Mismatch I have the 6110 officejet, and I just replaced the ink cartridges. The message "Press Enter to align cartridges" shows up, so I press enter. The printer then runs a piece of paper straight through without printing anything and give the error message "Paper mismatch, please replace with plain paper". The paper I am using is "HP Everyday Copy & Print Paper", I am not sure how much more "plain" you can get then that.  Does anyone have any ideas why this is happening and what I can do to make it stop? Thanks!

Cleaning the sensor often works as well. A slightly damp cloth followed by a dry cloth should do the the trick.

The problem is the "spot sensor" that resides on the side of the carriage assembly. It shoots out a ray of light on to the paper when the paper is fed into the printer for printing. It tells the machine..."Hey...there's paper there, start printing". If this sensor is not working properly you will get the error that you are receiving. Most of the time the light still comes on but the sensor board cannot process. You will need to replace the spot sensor of which we have many of....There is a thin plastic piece on the right side of the carriage that covers this sensor. It removes easily so you can see what i'm talking about. Its very easy to replace as well.

The paper type is probably not set to "plain" in the printers menu.

Hp 6110 Printer, add wider paper size. Also align cartridge keeps appearing even after I've pressed enter and the process keeps repeating.


Press the enter key and hold it while you press the menu button. That will make the align message go away, but if just one color is missing it will always fail the alignment. The paper size is chosen in control panel and printer properties, printing preferences.

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.
