Remove both the cartridges from the printer and check the expiry dates on both cartridges, if any of the cartridge is expired then change the cartridge and check the result. If the cartridges are not expired then check the ink levels present in the cartridges from the HP Solution Center. If the ink levels are good then clean the copper contacts of the cartridges with a soft cotton cloth and power cycle the printer.

  1. Turn the product off.
  2. Unplug the power cord from the product.
  3. Wait 30 seconds, and then reconnect the power cord to the product.
  4. Turn the product on.
Now insert the cartridges and align them, after alignment page prints then scan the page.

If it still gives alignment failed message then remove the cartridges and reset the printer and check for the result.

My HP photosmart A520 Printers ink wont align


I had the same problem with mine when I bought it. The print head is in the ink cartrige not the printer. If it prints all red, blue or yello one of them is stuck, this happened on the trial cartrige that came with it. I put a fresh 110 in it and it aligned and I have printed a TON of pix with no problems.

4. Remove paper from paper tray so printer has no paper to print on
5. Turn printer on
