I cannot get my new black print cartridge to align properly. I am using the HP Photosmart 2610 all-in-one device.

    Same problem for me. All I did was install a new black cartridge(#96-genuine HP). It doesn't print clearly. I have tried cleaning the nozzle, using the HP program, but the align program has failed everytime I have tried it.

I bought a new ink cartridge which will print well. But the alignment still does not work for some reason. The printer screen says to "check the device instructions" whatever that means. i am willing to continue to use the printer as is unless you have a simple solution. Thanks Gerald Lord

My hp photosmart 2610 will not print in color


Try running a test page and see what happens. If only one or two colors print, for example you see magenta but no cyan or yellow, then the cartridge could be clogged. Try aligning the cartridges and/or cleaning them to see if that helps.

If not, the cartridge might be defective, damaged, or out of ink so try a different cartridge. It's possible that the ink dried up if the printer was left on for too long or not used for a long time, and sometimes there are just defective cartridges; this happened to me one time with a color HP cartridge for one of my printers.

Worst case scenario, if nothing is able to print or if the printer is making weird noises, it might be a problem with the headers or another internal component that would have to be fixed.

HP forces you to have the color cartridge INTACT to DO ANYTIHNG. TIHS IS A POS AND AGAINST FEDERAL LAW.

Black printing morphs into red after black ink cartridge installation


Your printer creates it's black by using ALL the colours together. This effectively gives a very dark purple rather than black.

It sounds like you have a colour cart that is drying up or may be struggling to get enough air into the cartridge. Make sure you have removed any tape over the vent holes if you are using compatible inks. If not then try running a couple cleaning cycles via the button panel/driver.

If you alter the settings in the driver by going into START - PRINTERS AND FAXES and then right click on your 2610 and select PROPERTIES - the changes you make in here will be set as the default settings for each print job.

Color Cartridge Failure


You know, I'm not going to read the other solution. I know 100% FOR SURE, when a cartridge fails, it is dead and there is nothing you can do about it, but there is a good side. HP ink cartridges have a year warranty. Call them and tell them it failed, they'll send you a new one!

New black print cartridge not working


I only use refill HP inks. When the cartridge prints gray instead of sharp black it means the ink well is clogged. Yes, that can happen on a new cartridge. Sometimes it happens when they put too much ink in the cartridge, or even heat can make it not work. Also streaking black lines is the problem of the ink not coming out properly. Easiest thing to do is go to a refill station like Cartridge World and have them test it or clean it out. You can also make sure the printer, not the cartridge is clean. Ink builds up an pools. Get some Q-Tips and clean up all that spilled ink. Sometimes in the software it says you can clean the print head, do that too.

Remove and check color cartridge


try this. worked for me. when installing the cartridge, put one finger under the cartridge and hold upward pressure as you closed the green plastic cover. problem is the pins on the cartridge and the pins on the printer are not aligning properly by relying on the spring to do it. this will help to align the pins and should make it work.
