Can the "align cartridge" requirment be stopped

I have an HP210 and evertime I change an ink cartridge, it requires me to realign teh cartridge. This is a pain since usually it happens right in the middle of something important that I am printing. Can this be terminated / bipassed so that I don't have to align it?

I know it is quite frustrating. Let me help you in this regard.

Before we move, let me inform you that whenver, you are trying to insert a new cartridge into the printer, the printer would be detecting the cartridge and prompts for alignment. SO, I suggest you to go as per it and however, if you want to bypass the alignment you have the following steps.


Press Setup and Options (or Copy Options) simultaneously when align message is prompted on the All-in-One.


Regards,

Sagar

Why after installing new ink cartridges, the system says to realign scanner. never saw this before.


Realignment procedure is typical when replacing ink cartridges. It is a pretty straight-forward process and takes only a few moments. Most printers provided detailed instructions on the alignment page it prints - otherwise Google your printer for instructions. Alignment ensures that there are no gaps or white lines in text or images.

Hi

Nice to know that you have enough knowledge to do the basic techniques required.

Anyways Did you try to align the cartridges? first time when the cartridges are installed the printer prints the alignment page which needs to be scanned by the printer, did you perform this set? if not then try to goto tools menu in your printer and try to use the option align cartridges. Only then the cartridges will be aligned and calibrated to print.

Run a few "print-head-cleaning" cycles, to get the black ink flowing through the ink-jets inside the print-head.

Some printers REQUIRE an "alignment" step every time you change the ink-cartridges.
It only takes a few minutes, and it prints one or two pages of paper.

Have put new cartridges in and only prints yellow lines


Remove all cartridges, make sure any tape has been removed from over the nozzle. Ensure that everything has been installed properly, then use your printer (prompts on device, or in printer>control panel) to print some test pages, realign heads, etc.

Print colour not consistent


Hi,
The single item in an inkjet printer that requires the most attention is the ink cartridge and usually is the cause of uneven, light and inconsistent printing problems. When such problems happen usually the ink cartridge needs to be replaced, but sometimes you may need to inspect the ink cartridges for problems. Ink cartridges can be popped out of the printhead assembly for inspection of the inkjets. if any or all of the jets are clogged, it is possible to clear them by gently wiping the face of the cartridge with a swab. A gentle squeeze of the ink reservoir can also help to unblock the clogged jet.
Hope this helps

On an HP PSC 950, I'm getting a repeated "Press Enter to Align Cartridges" message when I try to copy. Got a response from a previous expert that wasn't even applicable to this model, and no response...


hello, the reason your printer is constantly trying to align cartridges, is it did not complete the alignment, machine must complete alignment, so this message will go away, this machine requires all #15 black ink cartridge and #78 color ink cartridge, it requires the color ink to be working since it uses either yellow or magenta ink for calibration,also black ink has to working for this to work. now if the ink cartridges are known good ink or printing ink cartridges, then the problem maybe the sensor that detects the color when it prints, you may try with a soft wet or damp paper towel, when cover is open as if you are replacing the inks, unplug printer from power, move carraige to left alittle bit more, on the right hand side of carraige, you might see a black piece of plastic, behind that is the sensor, use the wet towel and wipe the bottom part of carraige and sensor, do this several times. now go ahead and close machine and power up, see if machine will pickup paper, print the calibration page. if all is working it should pass.

Hp is known for being a pain with ink.

We once had a business jet that would not print because our ink had expired lol...

The printer wont work because it know's that the old cart has no ink. And since it needs all three colors along with black to print it will not do it, Usually you can set the printer to print only black under properties or print settings.

Other then that you will need another cartridge. You can also try one more thing. If you need to print in a Pinch, down on the right hand part of your screen, Is the clock. Double click it and change the date back a year from today and see if that helps you print
