    Is there a way to override the prompt to align the ink cartridges? I hit enter, it runs the alignment and then prompts for the same action again and again. I am unable to use the printer, fax or copier because of this. Every time it print an alignment page, it's fine. What can I do?

In my experience, the <align cartridge> happens when you change ink, has a [don't do {HP chat would be a help}] and wouldn't let you print or scan either unless completed.

normally prints a [2] sheet, then asks to scan it.

for photo quality, override isn't reccommended.

does copy work at all?

scan, save, print might work

Have you carried out a head alignment procedure, I would carry that out again
the online user manual is available from this link http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/manualCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=79499&lang=en&
The HP PSC 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. A page of patterns is printed. The cartridges are aligned correctly. Recycle or discard the page.
To align the cartridges at any other time:
  1. Press Setup.
  2. Press 5, then press 2.
  3. This selects Maintenance, and then selects Align Print Cartridges.
  4. A page of patterns is printed. The cartridges are aligned correctly.
  5. Recycle or discard the page.

Ink Cartridge Alignment


On alignment sheet, do you see a line of yellow blocks?
And on next line do you see alternate block and yellow blocks?

(Without these, alignment fails)

If not, change the colour cartridge, re-print the page and repeat alignment.

Good luck...

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.

Common fault is with the print cartridge replace with an original and follow the instructions. If this does not work remove cartridge and with a soft cloth just wipe clean the little gold contacts (CAREFULLY) reinstall cartridge and repeat installation procedure for new ink cartridge. If this doesn't work then you will possibly have a faulty ink carriage.

Hope this is some help
