unless you are printing and choosing black only, the printer uses the color cartridge also. Go into advanced settings and choose black only. If not you may try and replace the color cartridge, or return the cartridge, it might be defective.

My printer won't complete the cartridge alignment function. It only prints the first two bars and then stops. When printing the black cartridge looks faded and half printed lines across even though it is a...


My printer does the same thing. I changed the blank ink yesterday (the printer shows the black ink was low) however after trying and trying and not being able to complete the alignment I decided to change the color ink as well.
It worked. Printer works fine now. Sometimes the ink dries up and you have to change it even though you know it should last longer.
Give it a try and let me know.

HP D4160 printing only in b & w. Changed color cartridge. Have I messed up a setting somewhere?


yes you must have messed up the setting try change the cartridge i mean swap it, black for colour and colour for black, if it does not work, then make sure you bought the right one check the numbers of the one you changed, if its thesame, then return the catridge there must be a factory error or the catridge is a fake one. thanks

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.

HP OfficeJet K80 All-In-One Problem: Constant Request To Realign Cartridge


This could be a hit or miss but what does it hurt to try...
I had this problem with the color cartridge a while back. Worked tirelessly with HP support and somehow got it to work. Since it was on the phone and a while back, I fogot! Now is the time for the black cartridge. Same thing. Reading somewhere here about skipping the test I gave it a try and it worked.

- Unplug the printer for 1 minute (not sure if this is necessary but it doesn't hurt).
- Replug.
- When the "Press Enter to align..." message comes up, PRESS and HOLD Enter.
- While holding Enter, press Menu. The screen skips the test part and shows the date.
- Release Enter. Now you can print. Actually, I could print, you are on your own now.

Good luck!
