Printer continues to display "press enter to align cartridges". Have tried to do this several times, but only with negative results. Also, the black ink cartridge was empty so I bought a refill kit and followed the instructions to the letter. It's full but NO black ink comes out at all. Have cleaned it several times. Still nothing. Almost ready to get out the trusty hammer and destroy this thing. Can anyone help me?? Anyone???

YOU NEED TO LET THE PRINTER RE-ALIGN ITSELF AFTER INSTALLING PRINT CARTRIDGES, THE PRINTER SHOULD HAVE PAPER IN IT TO DO THIS, THE TEST PAGE PRINTED WILL THEN NEED TO BE PLACED IN THE PRINTER ON THE GLASS, PRESS SCAN, THIS SHOULS RESET YOUR PRINTER.
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.
HP, in order to sell more ink, monitors the expiration date of the cartridges installed. Solution is either to buy a new unexpired cartridge from HP or to disable the date monitoring built in to the printer. This latter is done by removing the button cell located inside the D135 printer on the left hand side or by simply slipping a thin piece of plastic between button cell and metal contact. You will no longer have date function on printer, but it won't object to expired cartridges either.
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
