It's very difficult not knowing what printer and what cartridge. As long as it is doing alignment, it means it is accepting your cartridge. But since it keeps on asking it everytime you turn on the printer, it might be you need to check if the contact points have ink on them as well as the contact pins on the printer, it they are clean then just re-insert the cartridges carefully. If it doesn't work, try one of your old cartridges to see if it will do the re-aligment request or not. If it doesn't then it's most likely the cartridge. If it does then it might be a hardware problem w/ your printer. Hope this helps.

New brother laser printer hl-2140 with new ink cartridge . All printed pages are covered with black ink. Slide the cleaner and even change cartidge, but same problem.


Please try to re align the print heads and service the carraige assembly of the printer ( Place where you slot in your cartridge). if it doesnt work then there is a leakage on the ink piping system.

Replace the Ink service station.

My HP printer PSC 1510 All-in-One no longer asks me to align my ink cartridges after a change of cartridges. Now, after a system recovery, it prints an alignment page every time I turn it on, whereas...


The only way to stop this is to press the cancel button, just as it tries to print the test page.

Various people have said the printer won't align (calibrate) successfully unless both ink cartridges are more than 50% full, and until it aligns successfully, it will continue to print the test page on start-up.

It is a total waste of ink and paper, so remember to hit the cancel button when you turn it on.

Keep printing test sheets


A lot of HP printers print a page to enable the print head alignment and calabration. This normally orcurs when a cartridge has been changed. If the alignment page fails then it will reprint alignment page until it can align.

So, you need to get that page it prints and place it on the glass and press scan, then it will complete alignment and be ready to rock.

I just got off the HP help line.  After changing my black ink cartridge a test page was printing each time I turned the machine on.  This is very costly, in both time and ink as the cartridges themselves for this machine hold very little ink.  I tried to learn from HP tech how to turn off the test-print while keeping my color cartridge empty.  It turns out that you cant do it.  HP requires you to keep buying and using cartridges whether you need them or not.If you buy the color ink it will use it up in its testings.  And if you dont buy the color cartridge it will use up your black ink by printing the test each time you turn on the printer.  The printer was inexpensive sure, but I'm paying for it in wasted ink.
