    I have the same problem. I check where the cartridges to, it looks fine. We did have a paper jam. Could that have been a cause to this problem?

This sounds like it may be a spring clip dislodged in the cartridge slot as shown in picture 1. If so check for damage to the flex cable as shown in picture 2. If the cable is damaged, the printer is unrepairable as the parts (cable or carriage) can't be ordered. If it's just the spring clip, epoxy it back into place before it causes further damage.

Hope this helps you. Crossing my fingers for ya.

    Here's the next step to try and resolve the issue. If the issue still persists, please click on the link below and install
    the firmware update:

    ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softlib/software3/COL4415/oj-14700-3/HpAiOFWUpdate2_2.exe

    NOTE: Clicking the link may give an error indicating it is
    invalid. If this occurs, copy the portion of the address
    on the remaining line(s) and paste it at the end of the
    address showing in your browser until the complete address
    is displayed in the Address box.

    1. Download the file "HpAiOFWUpdate2_2.exe" to a local hard drive. Make note where (in which folder) the file gets copied (RECOMMEND DESKTOP SO YOU KNOW WHERE IT IS).
    2. The hp all-in-one software for the OfficeJet 6100 series must be installed on your PC before installing this firmware update. The OfficeJet 6100 series must also be connected to your PC and turned on before proceeding.
    3. Locate the file "HpAiOFWUpdate2_2" on your hard drive and
    double-click the file to install the firmware update.
    4. Follow the instructions and once completed with the update, you may find your issues resolved. This firmware fixed a number of issues, including the dreaded "Alignment Failed".



    Let me know how it works out. More than willing to continue pulling the HP chain for you. I'm a repair tech that enjoys tackling the issues everyone else won't touch. :)

Keeps telling me to "Press Enter to Align Cartridges"


For some reason, you printer is lock on the alignment mode.
You can try removing power from the printer.
Remove both cartridges, unplug printer.
Wait 15 minutes and plug printer back into the electrical outlet.
Turn on printer.
Wait for printer to stop.
Reinstall cartridges.

My printer wont print it keeps saying press enter to alein cartridge


I just noticed in the link to your forum item that additional text appears that does not appear in the item itself. It looks like you are getting a message telling you to press Enter to align your print carriage. This is a common step after you replace an ink cartridge. According to HP.com, here's what you are supposed to do:

"A message will appear in the front panel display requesting that the ink cartridges be aligned. Press Enter to start the cartridge alignment. Two pages will print. Following the instructions printed on the second page, place the first page on the scanner glass in the lower-right corner and then press Enter to finish aligning the cartridges. Remove the page from the scanner glass when complete".

The link to those instructions is as follows:

Replace the Print Cartridge

Just follow the instructions I posted above in italics and you should be good to go. Good luck.

Error message Alignment


There is no doubt in my mind it Will be the cartridges you are using, alignment will continue to be requested if print out is missing bits do yourself a favour and use HP gen., not trying to plug HP just telling you the facts
