When I put in new ink cartridges the printer says that there is a problem and it can't realign. Also, it says to take off the tape from the cartridges and put them back into the printer but there is no tape on the cartridge.

Replacing ink on an epsom wf7010 with generic ink

Try Genuine Epson cartridges and if the white strips disappear then you know it's the generic carts. If not then clean the printer heads, if that doesn't do it then get a new printer.

My HP PSC 1610v keeps saying 'remove and realign color cartridge' even tho I've put in a new cartridge.

Is it a genuine HP?

If yes then there is a fault with the actual cartridge. Check you have removed the tape from the ink outlet if its still on it will cause theis error. If all appears right, try another GENUINE cartridge and claim the faulty one

Just brought new black cartridge installed 6 times,

Did you peel off ALL the contact-protective tape? Did you maybe touch the connector pads? If so, grab an eraser and scrub it clean (shiny) again. Fingerprints have oil and will mess up the connection.

Also, look into the printhead socket and make sure there is no dust, fluff or paper bits in there too.

Did you remove/reinstall new with power off? It HAS to be on ;-)

Did it automatically do a 'cleaning' to get the new ink flowing?

b/c it is an All in One. you will probably have to put the printout on the scanner glass (favce down) so the printer can realign itself to the new cartridge.
As a last resort (it is Windows, right??) Reboot the machine and it will FIND and TEST the printer status again
