You need to scan in the alignment page by placing it on the scanner and pressing "Start Scan". See "http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00652671&jumpid=ot_recdoc/c00652982/en_us/c00652671/loc:2&custom_solutionid=rd_c00652982&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&softwareitem=mp-47462-1&os=2093&rule=9468&product=1146336".

My hp 4280 all in one printer says i am out of ink both cart are new.


Good day.
Try to print a print test page through the Setup Menusofthardware_1.jpg
Choose Tools>Print Test Page and check if you still get the same message out of ink. Also check the ink level report on the page which is very important.
If it says out of ink or ink level report shows no ink, check the new ink cartridge and take off the plastic cap off the nozzle.
Reseat the ink cartridges, restart your printer. (Power it off then back off) Check if it's the same issue. If it is,it would also be best to Align the Print head. Setup Menu>Tools>Align Printhead.

Since installing new ink cartrige every time I turn on the printer it prints an alignment page


Hi:
This problem is usually caused by one of the colors in the installed cartrige not printing out on the alignment page. You need to have red, blue and yellow working to get a good alignment. Try removing the cartridge, and wiping the print head with a wet paper towel to try to start the ink flowing. You should see three bands of color ink oozing out the bottom. If not, the cartridge is bad and needs replaced again!

Every time I turn on my HP Photosmart C3150 printer, it prints an alignment page as if I had just installed a new cartridge.


You might look at the track bar or around the side where the cartridges return. Your printer probably isn't registering a full return on the idle position. See if a switch is dirty / stuck or foreign matter might be blocking it's "home"

Photosmart 5580. How do I turn off the annoying


Because it is a photo printer it knows that the print heads must be aligned for optimum reproduction. You get a new print head with each cart.

For the amount of ink a test page uses I can't see the reason for complaint. If you begrudge the miniscule amount of ink and are not bothered about the best possible printing then just ignore it.
