    My printer is doing the same thing, only when its done scanning there is no "ok" button on the printer screen. so there is no "ok" to push. instead I can push "done" on the computer screen, but it just loops back.

    this is sometimes caused by a faulty cartridge, even if new the unit may not be able to aign it if the sensor on the cartridge is bad.

    This is from the HP website for your model. Make sure you are using UNUSED - WHITE paper, like the instructions says, anything else may cause the alignment to fail.

    To align the print cartridges from the control panel when prompted

    1. Make sure you have letter or A4 unused plain white paper loaded in the input

    tray, and then press OK.

    The HP All-in-One prints a print cartridge alignment sheet.

    If you have colored paper loaded in the input tray when you align

    the print cartridges, the alignment will fail. Load unused plain white paper

    into the input tray, and then try the alignment again.

    If the alignment fails again, you might have a defective sensor or print

    cartridge. Contact HP Support. Go to If prompted,

    choose your country/region, and then click Contact HP for information on

    calling for technical support.

    2. Load the print cartridge alignment sheet on the left front corner of the glass and

    press OK.

    The HP All-in-One aligns the print cartridges. Recycle or discard the print

    cartridge alignment sheet.

This may fix the problem. You can reset the machine back to factory defaults by unplugging the power. While holding the 6 and the # key, plug the power back in. You will see a black band on the screen. When that goes away, turn the power back on. It should tell you it is resetting. You may have to do it more than once.

I have a 5610 all in one printer and when I just put in the new cartiges it gives me an error message stating "Cartige not aligned".

The instructions displayed on the computer screen during the Print Cartridge Alignment are incorrect. If the printed alignment page is placed on the scanner glass and the Scan button is pressed as instructed on the computer screen, the all-in-one will beep and the control panel display will indicate Busy . The all-in-one will not align the print cartridges.
The instructions on the printed alignment page or the all-in-one control panel display are correct. Follow the instructions below: Place the alignment page on the scanner glass and then press the OK button on the all-in-one to complete the print cartridge alignment.

Installed new black ink cartridge in HP PSC 2110 color printer, scanner, copier. Followed instructions to align cartridges. Printer printed paper that had additional instructions. Placed second printed...

hello, machine will need to finish calibration so it will not come back, so if machine failes it could be that the color cartridge is not printing, because this machine uses yellow to calibrate with.

Hp C4280 keeps wanting to print an alignment page every time I turn it on. I inserted new inkjet cartridges and printed the alignment 3 times and it looks great.

Place the alignment sheet as below on the scanner glass :

Lift the product lid, and then place the alignment page face down on the scanner glass, aligned with the right front corner of the scanner glass.

Printer keeps showing Office Jet 8500 Wireless

The printer wants to align the print cartridge, if you print out the alignment sheet, and then following instruction, place on scanner and scan it in etc, and it fails to callibrate, I have found it is because some of the information on the calibration page is not being printed correctly so therefore machine cant calibrate the print heads from it, this is normally due to poor quality cartridges or failing/empty print cartridge or cartridges, these use two I think, and I bet one of the colours from the colour isn't printing properly, replace colour cart if blacks look good. Below is a link to HP so you can see what a alignment page needs to look like to pass calibration, compare yours and you may find a colour is dodgy on it.

The quality sheet is printed EVERY time I turn on the printer

Take the alignment sheet and place on scanner bed in proper orientation. Close scanner lid and press scan button. Alignment process will complete automatically.

I changed the black ink cartridge as per instructions and the printer printed an alignment paper which i then placed in the printer for alignment but the alignment failed

the page should be absolutely new.and the scanner glass should be absolutely cleaned.and 1 main thing u replaced your black cartridge.but if your colour cartridge is empty it will not accept the allignment complete will show allignment failed as the particular colour is missing in your allignment sheet which is required to get the allignment complete.

Cartdrige alignment

Call HP and send it back. They'll run you through their hoops to make sure there really is a problem. (There is, it's a known problem with this printer). They'll send you a new printer and pay for the shipping to send back the broken one.

Don't wait too long.

If possible, save yourself a lot of grief and take the printer back and get a refund. This problem will continue to plague you at some point. It's a problem with the printer itself not in how you use it.

Their software often gets corrupted on your computer and requires reinstalls, you'll have problems with the updates, faxes may or may not go through -- I had mine for a year and trust me it's just better to get a refund and try another computer.

This time, I'm searching Fixya and other sites for known problems before investing a few hundred for a printer.

Unfortunately for me, mine didn't show up until after my warranty expired. (A week after).

Good luck!

Try this link. It is the full intall file for the all in one being run on a Vista Machine. It worked fine for my installation.

Muck around on the site for a bit, and you can also find the same install file for Windows XP.

Good Luck
