Unplug the printer, wait 30 second and plug it back in. Sometimes that resets it.

Printer cartridges wont align says alignment failed and then paper too narrow


I request you to perform the steps below to align the cartridge:
1. Load letter or A4 unused plain white paper into the input tray.
2. Press Setup.
3. Press 6, then press 2.

This selects Tools and then selects Align Print Cartridge. The HP all-in-one prints a print cartridge alignment sheet and aligns the print cartridges. Recycle or discard the page.

Bypass the alignment :

Press and hold the Enter button, and then press Menu
