Usually, the second part of the "alignment" process is to put the printed page into the scanner,
and then to scan the page -- the Lexmark will compare the "actual" printed-page with the "optimal" settings, and will adjust the printer to "align" the heads. Have you done this part?

> will not print ... from Microsoft Word

What happens? What does not happen? Did you use setup in Word to choose your printer as the "default" printer?

HP C6180 all in one printer My printer will not print light magenta and magenta, all the other colours are fine. Tried everything Any suggestions Thanks Paul


This problem seems to be with the printheads of the printer If magenta ink cartridge has enough ink inside it and if print heads are damaged then you need to replace this printer.....

But still if u want you can follow the below mentioned steps :

If it is not printing in light magenta and magenta than you can try the below mentioned steps :

Step 1 - First clean print heads from the menu of the printer. You can look for clean printhead option under printers menu - Tools - Clean Print Heads.
Now print and see if it is printing or not. If issue is not resolved then move on

Step 2 - Check if your magenta ink cartridge & Light magenta ink cartridge has ink in it or not...if it is empty or if has very low ink then.....
replace it with a new ink cartridge......and now it is going to aling the printer....While it aligns it is going to make noise and will show a message printer aligning or alignment in process.
While it aligns dont touch the keys of the printer or dont interrupt in between the process otherwise hardware of printer might get damaged and you have to replace the whole printer
...and just wait...till the printer display shows the regular menu...

Note : - * During Alignment printer is going to consume more ink, so make sure you have enough ink in all the cartridges or otherwise it does not have enough ink in it
alignment process will not be completed properly.

Steps 3 - If it prints an alignement page then it is ok, check if all the colours on the alignment page and if all the colours are fine then ur issue is resolved...
for verifying you can print another document.If it does not print any alignment page then you can try printing an alignment page from the printers manually from the printers menu.

Now if it has resolved the issue then it is fine or else last you can try re-setting the printer.


Re-Setting the printer :


- Press and hold the "*" key.
- Press the "#" key and release both keys.
- Display should say "Enter Special Key Combo" then release the keys and press "1", "2" and "3" buttons in sequence.
- then you will get few options, now look for an option that says System Information or System Menu
- Press "OK" on System menu and look for an option Semi full re-set
- Press "OK" Button.Now printer will shutdown automatically and will turn on automatically after few seconds..as it is going to align the printer..
- Now it will make noise for few minutes wait till then and when you see regular screen on display then print a document and see if issue is resolved or not.

If issue is not resolved then you need to replace the printer. If it is in warranty then contact Hp customer care and they will replace it for free.

I changed the ink cartrige,it keeps saying alignment cancelled and the copy button keeps flashing - when i open it up the ink cartrige wont slide back out it seems stuck.


The printer needs to be aligned and it wasn't done after changing the catridge so it does not want to continue. Have you tried pushing the flashing copy button to print another alignment page? Do you know how to align the printer?

After changing a cartridge the printer wants to print an alignment page to make sure that it prints correctly. Some printers have you print a page and they auto align themselves. Others cue you to print the alignment page which has a picture or other graphics that are in specific places and then it instructs you to insert the alignment page face down and press "ok". The printer scans the alignment page and configures the print heads to set up by the marks. It uses the alignment page as a map of where the print should be on the paper.

Try unplugging the printer from the power supply and wait about 30 seconds. Then plug it back in and turn it on. The display should say "print alignment page". Choose yes or confirm to continue. Your printer will either print the page and align itself, or print the page and tell you to insert it and continue. Either way follow the prompts and complete the alignment process in order to continue printing as normal.

If you are unable to get the printer to reset and start the alignment procedure over again, please advise and I will help you solve this problem.

Dell 922 printer alignment problem-


try this...

Aligning Ink Cartridges Your printer automatically aligns the ink cartridges when they are installed or replaced. To verify your ink cartridges are aligned, you can print an alignment page. After you close the printer unit, press the Menu button. The alignment page begins printing. During printing, the operator panel display reads Alignment Page Printing. When complete, the message reads Auto Alignment Complete. Your ink cartridges are now aligned for optimal print quality.
You may also need to align ink cartridges when characters are not properly formed or are not aligned at the left margin, or when vertical or straight lines appear wavy.
To align the ink cartridges:
  1. Load plain paper. For more information, see Loading Paper.

  2. Click Start® Programs or All Programs® Dell Printers® Dell Photo AIO Printer 922® Dell Printer Solution Center.

  3. Click the Maintenance tab

  4. Click Align to fix blurry edges.

  5. Click Print.

The ink cartridges align when the page prints.


If this helps you plz rate this fixya. Thank you kindly. If you need more help post it & I'll be glad to do what I can.

Saying "enter to align cartridges continuously


You need to press the enter key on the top of the printer to start the alignment. On some of these devices you will need to place the printed alignment page face down on the scanner and then hit the enter key so that the printer can read the printed alignment page.

OfficeJet K60 All In One Problem:Aligning Cartridges


In the process of alignment there are two phases:

1. When the message comes to align the ink ..press ok and the page is printed out.

2. Once the page is printed then place the page on the scanner glass and tehn scan the same.

Follow these two steps in the same order and it will never give Align Ink Cart message again.
