  1. Check that the reservoir under the cartridges is not full.(This is a V shaped bucket sitting under where the print head parks.)
  2. Clean the plastic the two cartridges sit in with alcohol and a cotton swab. Especially where the copper makes contact.
  3. Clean the ink from the copper portion of the cartridges themselves or replace the cartriges with new ones...

C4200 photo smart, will not grab onto the paper to print or copy


disconnect the printer from the pc
disconnect the power cord from the printer as well the outlet
let it sit for roughly 5 mins.
during the power drain... clean the rollers of the printer with a lint free or as close to a lint free cloth.

re connect the power cords then try to print a self test page by pressing and holding cancel and copy black at the same time. if that fails... contact the manufacturer it may need servicing

HP photosmart C4200 - alignment disable


I've run into this problem. The first simple thing to look at is the aligment page itself. Does it have colors on it or is it strictly greyscale/black and white? If your color cartridge is empty/a knockoff/not installed correctly, the printer will just print the alignment page in black/white and not necessarily notify you of a problem. However, the cartridges won't align if the aligment page isn't printed in color.

This is clearly a screw-up by HP, because there is nothing to notify you of this problem in the software or manual. The printer will automatically print an aligment page, and then tell you to scan it. If they did it right there would be some error message notifying the user that it couldn't print an aligment page rather than print one that is worse than useless.
