I replaced the cartridge for my HP C4250 printer/scanner but the alignment page did not print properly, so I did not get a proper scan page. Now it will not print at all. What next?


Hi,
A cleaning will fix the problem. To clean your HP C4250 > open a document (from the computer) and select print from the menu,
- In the print screen window select 'properties' Or 'Preferences'

- In the next window click 'maintenance'

- In the next window there will be many options to clean, align, nozzle check etc etc...



hope this helps, thanks!

My lexmark 640 printer is not printing ie blank page after printing, yet the ink levels are high as i've hardly used it. what can i do, please? sandy


Print quality issues can be due to clogged print cartridge nozzles. Please follow the steps below to fix the problem:
  1. Try to remove the cartridges from your printer
  2. Close the printer cover.
  3. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it.
  4. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges.
  5. Your printer will then try to print an alignment page. It will help clean the cartridge nozzles.
  6. After the alignment page comes out, try to print a document again to verify if problem is resolved.
If the problem continues, try to launch the Lexmark Solution Center on your computer. Go to Maintenance and select Clean Cartridge.
You can also try to insert a different known working cartridge to determine if it's a cartridge problem.

Hi, replaced ink cartridge on Lexmark X2470. Now it goes as far as the "print alignment page" and freezes. Will not print the alignment page or any other page for that matter. Thanks.


Hello. The ink cartridge may not be seated properly in the carrier. Remove the cartridges from the printer. Close the cover. Clean the nozzles using a damp paper towel. Unplug the printer from the power source. Plug it back in after 10-15 seconds. When the printer asks for the cartridges, reinsert the cartridges. Also, make sure you're using the compatible ink cartridges for the printer. Let it print the alignment page all the way without cancelling it to align the cartridges properly. Hope this helps.

When I change the black ink cartridge, the alignment page and instruction page are printing out fine. When I place the alignment page on the glass as instructed and press 'ENTER', the printer gives a...


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.

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.

VERTICAL PRINT LINES


Check the front paper exit rollers for fit and alignment also the paper deck guides close to the planten area, if the printer is dropping print vertically down one side of the page, this can be caused by debris or anything that lifts the caridge assy the slightest bit, also check the print head seating and ribbin cable for proper alignment
