Press menu and then press the Right Arrow key until you get to maintenance screen then press enter. Option 2 is you align print cartridges. Automatic cartridge alignment Perform the following steps to align the ink cartridges:
1. Disconnect the power cord from the unit, wait five seconds, and then plug it back in. This will reinitialize the unit. 2. Print another alignment test page.

I just had the same issue (align page not detected).
We had just re-installed the empty color cartridge back into the printer (long story but basically we knew we could only print B/W).
The align page printout had a lot of empty spaces around the black lines. This is apparently where the color lines are supposed to print.
Without those color lines, the printer would not detect the align page as color is part of the alignment being done.
Since we only wanted black printouts, I pressed 'cancel' to stop the alignment process, and now we just hit the Black copy button and ignore the alignment prompt on the printer window.
The HP site (enter psc750 in product window) has some helpful ideas as to what the problem might also be. It could be the shipping tape is still on the new cartridge (and preventing the black or color from printing on the align sheets) etc.
when you installed the new one cartage then every time your printer will be align cartage and if the printer was not detect the alignment page properly then every time he will be align
so when the align page will be printed it will can properly once it will detected then the alignment page printing will be stoped
