Question about HP PSC 2210 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Stuck in a queue for align cartridges.

No matter what I do it stays in this queue for align cartridges.
I've turned it off, cancelled, reset default settings, etc...
When I push enter to align cartridges it goes into the process and stops about halfway through the process and cancels itself with the dialog box saying "Cancel Alignment."
Now what?
Please advise!

>do everything in reverse order(put everything back
This is a simple reset. Is the machine now working?

If this is not working, look very carefully inside the printer sockets- are there any bent wires ? any broken? is there dried ink globs anywhere?

If everything looks okay, then we next need to check to see if your printer driver is up to date or has become corrupted in some way.

go to this site
http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/support.html?pageDisplay=drivers

Enter you info and download the appropriate driver for your printer and your operating system.(Make sure you get the correct driver) Be sure to turn off all running programs when you do this including your firewall. Download it and save it to your desktop. It will be an exe. file on your desktop. Before you install it, turn the printer off. Click on the icon to install the new driver. Then turn the printer on and see if all is well. Good luck and if this does not work, let me know. I have had many HP printers.

Good Luck to you!

Lexmark x5650 paper jam


Basically, you need to check along the paper's pathway through the machine. Paper may well be stuck inside the printer. If you pulled paper out, leaving behind a torn corner, that could be enough to set off a sensor. If there is NO paper inside anywhere, then cancel any remaining print jobs, close all necessary printer drawers, and turn OFF your printer entirely and let it sit for about five minutes. Then try turning it on -- that usually resets it.

My 5 in 1 printer is saying no cartridge when I just replaced it and when I do get it to print it's not printing that good at all kind of gray like it's out of ink, it has a new cartridge


  • Click open START then CONTROL PANEL then PRINTERS AND FAXES
  • If asked, click the link that says view or modify existing printers
  • You should get to a window that shows a list of printers that are installed on your computer
  • Look for the printer icon with a tiny little checkmark in a black circle to the upper right (see image below). This is your default printer, that is, it's the one that prints if you don't manually select a specific printer. defprint.jpg
    Note how the checkmark indicates that the Brother HL-2040 Series is my default printer
  • In most cases, this is the printer you are having trouble with, but the following procedure can be applied to any printer on your system.
  • Double click open your default printer to view the print queue printqueue.jpg
    Note that there are two documents waiting to print in my print queue
  • If the print queue is empty, skip the next step
  • Click and pull down the PRINTER menu from the top of the print queue and select CANCEL ALL DOCUMENTS. This will delete anything that's stuck in the queue cancelall.jpg
    After clicking CANCEL ALL DOCUMENTS, it may take a minute or two for the queue to completely clear
  • Click and pull down the PRINTER menu from the top of the print queue. If there is a line item that says USE PRINTER OFFLINE and there is a checkmark to the left of it, click it once, otherwise, click CLOSE.
  • Now go to the printer and power it off, wait a few seconds and power it back on.
If these steps haven't solved your printing problem, then you probably need help

Printer keeps showing : Press enter to align cartridges. After doing this it then prints out an alignment page and shows: Alignment failed please: Press enter Alignment failed. This goes on and on. I have...


I have found that if I put in an old aligned page the printer reads it as and the alignment is accepted. As for the cancelled message being in the window, I have had this problem too. I've ignored it and selected the copy button and it took the command. The only problem with hitting cancel is that you cannot turn off your printer. Every time you do you have to repeat the aligning and cancellation process.

I tried to default printer because, it showed printing 18 pages and I did not want it to print all now it is stuck with 1page 1/4of the page sticking out of the printer. What should I do ??


Cancel all of the print jobs in the queue.
Open the printer, highlight the print jobs, right click and choose "Cancel"
Then turn the printer off, reboot your computer, turn the printer back on while the computer is rebooting.
That reset the entire printing process.

Could be a number of things. I would try looking in printer settings first. Click on your printer, go to properties and check all settings, it may be set to do this or similar. If no go, try uninstalling and reinstalling it, or just turning it off and unplugging, replugging and turn on again can often reset irregulariites. Also try resetting default printer settings too.
