Hello, my printer keeps asking me to "align print cartridges over and over again." It will not print anything out, and will not align. This happened recently after I replaced my ink cartridges, they are both the correct 56 style cartridge.
replaced both cartridges and now it keeps saying alignment failed

Re: Align Print Cartridges
A simple question first - have you removed the protective tape from the bottom of the cartridges? What kind of printer is it? I suggest you unplug the printer for a few minutes and then try again. Are they the manufacturer's cartridges or a lower cost brand? If they are the latter, it's possible they won't work with your printer.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Then, you need to have the printer driver software installed on your tablet.
Then, follow these steps:
-- Open the file you'd like to print
-- Tap the menu button in the top right of your screen
-- Tap Print
-- Tap the drop-down arrow.
-- Tap the printer you'd like to print from
-- Tap the print button
If you don't have Cloudprint download it to your phone and set it up. Then, again, on your phone, add your printer to the cloud-print settings then install app to activate the printing. Canon, Epson, HP and Kodak ship android and ios printing apps. You look for it on the play store and app store. You can also use the Easy photo-print. It identifies the printer immediately. You can touch the Extra key to activate printer as well.
I generally don't like posting links as the sole answer. However this topic is very long and extensive.
The link below will take you through each step of the process. I have used this guide myself to get my tablet to print to an office printer.
Keep in mind tablets and phones where not designed to connect to printers, so it may not work with all printers.
You can use google cloud print to enable printing features. Keep in mind tablets / phones where not designed with printing in mind, So your device / printer may not be supported.
If it aint got power, and it happened due to no ink being supplyied to head, it cause the head to overheat, ink flowing pass element stops it overheating normally, sometimes it just blows a fuse label F1 on main board, it will mean pulling it fully apart, finding f1 (cenrte main board, normally a fuse soldered directly to main board, smaller than one normally sees about this big "==" with F1 stamped on it). Normally one changes board but if you can get two you can make one work...I have seen some with removable type but most are soldered on, or you can be real dodgy and short it but may leak smoke and go bang, expesally if you aint fixed the cause of no ink being pumped...never work on these with power attached....
