HP OfficeJet G85 All-In-One... Alignment Problem

HI

I keep getting an message saying that my printer needs to be re-aligned. And then when I press the enter button to do this re-alignment it fails. The first of the three lines printed on the page is about 5cm indented from the other 2 print lines that follow. Even when I hit cancel a million times this does not go away, on/off still doesn't solve it, replacing the printer cartridges still no result. I can however copy and fax still. But, since I can't print and I do use it for printing this is a real problem.

Hope you can help or else I'll just have to bite the bullet and buy a new HP Multifunction printer.

Regards

Sean

Hp 6110 Printer, add wider paper size. Also align cartridge keeps appearing even after I've pressed enter and the process keeps repeating.


Press the enter key and hold it while you press the menu button. That will make the align message go away, but if just one color is missing it will always fail the alignment. The paper size is chosen in control panel and printer properties, printing preferences.

You press Enter , but the error message does not go away ? You have to bypass the cartridge alignment -
  1. Press and hold the Setup button.
  2. Press the Options button. The printer should be ready to print.

I have found that if I put in an old aligned page the printer reads it as and the alignment is accepted. As for the cancelled message being in the window, I have had this problem too. I've ignored it and selected the copy button and it took the command. The only problem with hitting cancel is that you cannot turn off your printer. Every time you do you have to repeat the aligning and cancellation process.
