Question about HP PSC 2175 All-In-One InkJet Printer
After changing both print cartridges, The message keeps saying Press Enter to align cartridges. I keep pressing Enter and the message never clears out. Also, sometimes it prints an alignment page, but only in black. I can print things in black only, the color is not working at all. The printer message is always there. How fix this?
Another solution...we were having the same issue, but we found out that our black cartrige was out of ink...and when we replaced the cartrige with a new one, the "align cartriges" message when away once we pushed it one final time...we are in good shape now...yes, we are idiots.

I had the align cartridges message as well. I pressed the "setup" and "option" buttons, pressed the power button on and off. I also received the button stuck message in several languages. I unplugged the printer for a minute, plugged it back in, turned it on and the printer seems to be working now. Thanks for the help!

After spending hours on the HP site I found this and after holding down the 2 buttons everything is fine. Thanks

I followed the suggestion of an earlier posting (hold down set-up and options keys at the same time) and it worked! :-)

Pressing "setup" and "options" together works for me.

I tried the suggested solution and it has made things even worse. Now my printer display tells me in every language under the sun that my buttons are stuck and I must release them! I can't turn it on or off (have tried turning off and back on at mains but it just comes back up with the same buttons stuck message now when it comes back on). I am very frustrated - please can someone help?

Hold "setup + options" at same time while turning off printer and back on while holding "setup + options"

I tried the method of holding down the setup and options buttons while turning it off and then turning it back on but I too had to read a few languages saying the button was stuck. I then held down cancel and restarted the printer. When the align cartridge message appeared again I pushed the setup and options buttons again (without turning it off) and the message went away.
Thanks for the help. Merry Christmas everyone!!

SOURCE: Printer cartridge alignment
You can also bypass the alignment. When the message for alignment displays on the display => Press Setup and Options (or Copy Options ) simaltanious.The last known alignment is used when the alignment is bypassed.
