Cartridges won't align


The HP printer can perform an print cartridge cleaning procedure even after the alignment message has displayed. Follow these steps to perform an print cartridge cleaning procedure at the front panel:
1.On the front panel, press the Menu or Setup button (depending on the model).
1.Press the right arrow button (>) until Maintenance or Tools is displayed, and then press the OK or Enter button (depending on the model).
1.The Clean Print Cartridges message should display on the front panel. Press Enter or OK to begin the cartridge cleaning process.
A page will be printed during the cleaning process with all of the colors on it. If any of the colors (including black) are missing, faded, or streaked on the alignment page, there is a ink cartridge problem.
If you go to HP website you can find more detailed information about alignment. Here is the link.

The copy comes out one side fine the other side very light - unreadable


Faded print could be due to exhausting toner.

Secondly, if it happens even after replacing the toner cartridge or if you current cartridge has enough toner, it is most likely be due to dust at the laser reflecting mirrors inside the printers,
, which partially blocks laser beams and requires cleaning/ servicing by a professional.

GoodLuck!
Dont forget to appreciate the solution if I could have been of any help!

I have a hp psc 950 I set uo align cartridge clear cartridges, then Itha receive a report saying that align cartridge failed.. Bob


There are several possibilities that you can check. First, what is the ink level for all colors? You need enough ink in all of the cartridges, black and the three color tanks in the color cartridge. A low ink in any one cartridge could do this.

Second, make sure you are printing on clean white letter or A4 paper (no additional print on the page). Is the paper feeding correctly from the paper tray? Did the alignment page print and arrive in the output tray? Check for a paper mismatch warning or if 4x6 paper selector lever is pushed forward on the output tray. Make sure the selector is pushed all the way towards the printer. Did the alignment page look like the previous alignment pages or the ones shown here: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=buu00657&tmp_task=solveCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=60259#Alignment_Pages .

If any color is missing, look for a problem with the cartridges. Try running a cleaning cycle: press Menu (or Setup, depending on the printer) on the printer. Press the right arrow until you see Maintenance or Tools. Press OK and then OK again if Clean Print Cartridges is highlighted. (Otherwise, highlight the Clean Print Cartridge by pressing the arrow keys and then press OK.) If the output is missing, faded, or streaked. Note: a low ink issue will be made worse with a cleaning. It is a cartridge issue. This could be a symptom of clogged nozzles on the cartridge, the protective tape still on the cartridge, or poor contact between the cartridge electrical contacts and the matching ones on the print head. Remanufactured and refilled cartridges are at higher risk of failing. However, the chip on the cartridge can also fail; in this case, if you have a genuine HP cartridge, contact HP. Replace the cartridges. You may want to clean the cartridges and the print head. Use distilled or bottled water and lint free paper or swabs. (coffee filters can be used.) Wipe away from the nozzles (the contacts, edges and ramps of the cartridge) of the cartridge and the contacts inside the printer. Wipe in one direction only even on the contacts inside the printer.

Reset the printer by unplugging the power cord for at least 5 seconds before plugging it back in. Print a new alignment page. Does the printer give one or two pages? If you only get one page, the alignment is automatic and you should see a blue light at times as the printer feeds and prints the page. If no light shows up, the printer needs service.

If you get two pages, check the scanner glass and white scan backing. Clean the surfaces with a soft cloth dampened with clean water, if they need cleaning. Check if the bulb assembly is lighting up when the unit is on. If that scanner light doesn't come on, the all-in-one needs service. Make sure to put the alignment page face down on the glass or face up in the ADF. Copy the alignment page. If the copy has vertical streaks, clean the scanner assembly. (If this cleaning doesn't help, again the unit needs service.)

You can bypass the required alignment. Press and hold the Enter button and then press the Setup button. The unit should print but the print quality will be poorer. If any colors are missing, check the ink level and for clogged nozzles.

I hope this helps.

Replaced both print cartridges but print is faded blue


Solution: There are a number of steps you can take to solve this problem (in order of easiest & least expensive first).

1. Make sure you have tried printing a nozzle check and you've carried out all the maintenance tasks that the manual alows (align print head, clean print head etc).
2. Your cartridge may be faulty. Ink cartridges that use non-genuine ink are of variable quality and you use them at your own risk. Even genuine cartridges can expire if used after the expiry date. Bad ink can clog your nozzle. It may be that you have a dried-out ink cartridge - try another one if you have one handy.
3. The print head may need cleaning. There are Canon print head cleaning kits available (use Google top right) or you could try doing this yourself - some people have had success immersing the print head (not the cartridge) in cleaning alcohol, warm water or using compressed air to gently blow through the nozzles.

Continually says align print cartridges


My guess is that the color cartridge is either defective or not inserted correctly. I have a 6110 and know that inserting a print cartridge is a little tricky. If it isn't completely inserted and the top latch fastened correctly, the cartridge either won't work or produce errors.

Try reseating the color cartridge so it's inserted in exactly the same way as the black cartridge and run a print job again.

Open the following web page and go to Step three to see the instructions for cleaning the electronic contacts on the cartridge and print carriage.

Those seem the most likely causes and solutions to me. Good luck.
