    my 3210 wont align. I have tried differtnt paper but it still doesnt. however it still does print.

    I've tried all the help on the HP website and my printer still won't align. It will spit out 2 blank pages and then say error aligning. It will still print, but if I print anything with lines on it, you can tell it is out of alignment. I've tried different paper and reseating all the ink cartridges and nothing has provided a successful alignment.

When this printer first came out, I got all excited and bought one, within six months I had it on the shelf, and went back to my HP2610, which I am still using. I personally think that this is the Edsel of HP printers.

This could be because of residue on the Printhead electrical contacts


Try the steps below and it should help.

Turn off the Printer.

1. Open the Carriage access door.
2. Remove the Cartridges
4. Move the carriage from left to right 6 times and it should move freely
5. Clean the contacts on the Cartridge with lint free cloth. ( Golden dots )
6. Turn on the printer and it should say " Cartridge missing or need to be reinstalled "
7. Install the Cartridges and close the Carriage door
8. the printer should go through alignment process

If this step does not fix, You may try calling HP customer support to check for better options/solutions

I have a hp photosmart 3210 all-in-one and it keeps printing the same thing over and over as soon as you turn it on


It can happen due to different causes:
If the cartridges are new, the automatic alignment process is not complete, for that:
1.Turn off the printer and turn it on again
2.Let the printer print the allignment page
3.After printing the alignment page, disconnect the USB cable which is connected behind the printer
4.Place the allignment sheet inside the scanner glass and press the scan button on the printer
The alignment is complete when the printed page is scanned
Turn off the printer and turn it on again, it should be fixed



The other possible causes might be:
The cartridges are not correctly installed or one of the cartridges is defective.
In that case reinstall the cartridges after cleaning them with lint free soft cloth.

If that does not work, then at least one of the cartridges need to be replaced

Photosmart 3210 - A Printer alignment failed error


Mine has done the same thing.

To fix this you have to reinstall the software, then reboot your computer.

I did that, and the printer alignment function worked fine for a while, then I started getting the same problem again, possibly after I had installed other software not related to the printer -- I don't really know.

In any event, it's doing the same thing again, so I just "cancel" the alignment and continue to use the printer. My prints are fine.

C6180 failed alignment test, will not print color properly


All colors need to be present to pass alignment. Usually what I see is the yellow is empty. You can blot the print cartridge on a damp paper towel to verify the inks are working and this also cleans the head.

Alignment after new cartridge


Hi I think that you will need to clean the gold dots on the printer carriage or if not done so remove the blue tape from the cartridge or if you are trying to use refills install some originals as this may help.

Hope this helps'
