hmmmm...assuming that the cartridge is installed properly, yes? seems that your black ink cartridge may need to go through a 'clean' process, prior to alignment(sure wish that the replacement folks would insist on cleaning out the old heads, before doing an alignment. It's like changing the oil on your car, but using the old filter. Same gunk still in the system.

SOURCE: align cartridges error

This means one of the cartridges is defective, they cant align if they cant print.  What i did to fix this problem is insert 2 working cartridges and get it to align properly, even if they are low on ink, then lift the cover and the cartridges will move to the center.  When this happens pull the power cable out, then insert the full non functioning cartridge. Plug the power cable back in.  I tried this with a color cartridge, the color cartridge was non functioning but i was able to print in black.
Basically you align the cartridges and then swap them so the printer thinks they are still aligned.
The color still doesnt work and it is probably a defective color cartridge.

SOURCE: When I change the black ink cartridge, the

I just had the same issue (align page not detected).

We had just re-installed the empty color cartridge back into the printer (long story but basically we knew we could only print B/W).

The align page printout had a lot of empty spaces around the black lines. This is apparently where the color lines are supposed to print.

Without those color lines, the printer would not detect the align page as color is part of the alignment being done.

Since we only wanted black printouts, I pressed 'cancel' to stop the alignment process, and now we just hit the Black copy button and ignore the alignment prompt on the printer window.

The HP site (enter psc750 in product window) has some helpful ideas as to what the problem might also be. It could be the shipping tape is still on the new cartridge (and preventing the black or color from printing on the align sheets) etc.

Replacement ink cartridge needs to be installed. Cannot locate cartridge housing.


These instructions are for color or black cardridges. Turn on the printer by pressing the power button. Flip down the front access door by grasping it on the upper right corner (just under the scanning bed) and pulling it down toward you. the cardridges will automaticly move to the right give you access to them. Press down on the top of the ink cartridge. This will release the cartridge. Slide it forward and out of the machine. Peel off the cover from the ink cardridge. This is a pink piece of plastic /tape like lift-off tab. Lift it up and off the cartridge.

Put the new cartridge inside of your Officejet J4580 by inserting it, label facing upward, into the open slot. Press it back into the unit and down lightly. You will hear it click into place. Close the access door. Wait for the alignment process to complete that will most likely require you to print a alignment page and place it in the scanner bed then press "OK".

I think thats about it

Printer will not print or make copies. Our alignment page got accidently thrown away. Can we align the printer without it? Can we get a new alignment page?


alignment page is done during the installation of new ink cartridges. you could re align the printer.
press setup > tools - ok > align cartridges - ok and then scan the aligned print out

Align Cartridge Always Shows Up


The message won't go away until it completes the alignment. If any colors are not printing it won't pass the alignment. you can bypass the message but it will keep coming up until the alignment is satisfactory.

HP Photosmart C4280 All-in-One Printer: when setting up printer it printed the alignment page okay put it on glass upside down right hand corner pressed ok message comes up Alignment Page not detected....


The reason is that your colour cartridge has run out of ink. You need to replace your colour cartridge as well and try the alignment process again.

Align page message


I have an OfficeJet 5780 and I have to do the alignment also. The allignment page it prints should have instructions on it. Just put it in the scanner and press "Enter". It needs to scan it to align the print heads.

This is from the manual on their website:

The HP Officejet prompts you to align cartridges every time you install or
replace a print cartridge. Aligning the cartridges ensures high-quality output.
To align the print cartridges when prompted:
1 Press Enter on the front panel.
An align cartridges (test pattern) page prints.
2 Load the align cartridges page face down in the ADF between the paperwidth
guides and press the Enter button again.
3 Recycle or discard the page.

The C4280 will not scan in the Alignment Page


I have had the same problem. When I was trying to fix it, noticed that my color cartridge was almost empty. I understood the alignment page was not prepared well. After changing cartridge, I prepared a new alignment page, then tried it and it worked
