Remove both cartridges, switch off printer and then on. After cartridge holder comes to the center install both the cartridges. Then it will print the Alignment page. After alignment page prints place the Alignment page on to the scanner and press SCAN button as mentioned in the Alignment page. After completing the scan try printing. It will print the usual speed.
Note: For the alignment process both cartridges should in good working state

Message: "Press Enter to align cartridges" When I do that it starts to do the alignment, then stops and repeats the message. It also won't print.


My thought is that one or both of your cartridges are no good. The printer will not print until it knows the alignment is good.
