You can calibrate manually directly from printer (quality menu)
If you using refilled toner cartridges problem will still persist and you must replace all cartridges whit new ones and then try to calibrate printer again...
Good luck!

I can't print the red color


Check the following steps :

Double-click the HP printer icon in the system tray at the lower right end of your desktop. Navigate to the "Toolbox" tab.

Click on the "Status" link on the left side of the window. Scroll through the "Status" menu and click on the "Print Info Pages" link.

Click the blue "Print" button located to the right of the "Configuration Page" heading. Check the print page to see if the "L" shaped bars are overlapping or bleed into each other.

Contact HP directly for a repair or replacement if the "L" bars do not have any overlap, as that will indicate an extensive mechanical problem that can't be fixed through troubleshooting.

Return to the "Toolbax" tab if the color bars are overlapping. Click on the model number of your HP color laser printer at the upper left end of the window. Click on the "Device Settings" link.

Choose the "Print Quality" option and then click on the "Calibrate" button on the right side of the window. Click "OK" in the new window that appears and wait for the alignment calibration process to finish.

Attempt to print a document again and see if the alignment is still off. If the alignment is not correct, repeat the calibrating, since the HP color laser printer may need to be calibrated more than once to fix the alignment.

Red light is on Printer will not work after moving


Someone printed in color. I know in the last 2 printers I had , the printers had a feature that wouldn't let you print if the other inks went below a limit. I think its supposed to make sure printer quality is high. My guess is to install the cyan cartridge and see if you can print now.

For future maybe you could get an all black cartridge to alleviate this in the future.

Colors do not match up


Have you tried a few alignments? Also you can try turning the printer on and when you start hearing the alignment turn the printer off ... do this a few times and see if this helps.
Also you can try to manually align the cartridges.. to do this turn the printer off. Open the front cover to reveal the cartridges. On the right hand side you can see some gears. Try to turn one of these slightly.. one click (1mm) should do it. Now turn the printer on and let it align itself

Even with a new cartridge inserted, the printer does not print properly. The printer does not indicate that a new cartridge is needed. How do I clean the printer head? It is a HP Photosmart C3180 al in...


Step one: Complete the alignment process If you have already installed new print cartridges, follow these steps to complete the alignment process.
  1. After installing a new print cartridge, wait at least 20 seconds for the print cartridge alignment process to start.
  2. Wait for the print cartridge alignment process to fully complete.
  3. Make sure that the alignment page has printed on plain, white paper that has no other printing on it. If you need to create a new alignment page, load the tray with letter or A4 unused plain white paper and turn the product off and on again to create the page.
If an alignment page does not print when the product is turned on or off, the issue is resolved. If an alignment page continues to print when the product is turned on or off, you should replace the cartridges with new HP cartridges. Continue to Step two: Remove the print cartridges. Step two: Remove the print cartridges Follow the steps below to remove the cartridges. NOTE: When you remove and install the same print cartridge, the unit will not align the print cartridge as the unit remembers the alignment values for that print cartridge.
  1. Press the Power button to turn the product on. The Power button is lit when the unit is on. Figure 1: Power button lit c01336350.gif
  2. Make sure that the paper tray is down, and letter or A4 unused plain white paper is loaded in the paper tray.
  3. Lower the access door until it stops. Make sure that the print carriage moves to the right side. Figure 2: Lower the access door c01336351.gif
  4. Wait until the print carriage is idle and silent, and then using your thumb, lightly press down on a print cartridge to release it. Figure 3: Print carriage c01336352.gif
    • If replacing the tri-color print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the left.
    • If replacing the black or photo print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the right.
    Figure 4: Proper position of the print cartridges c01336353.gif 1 - Tri-color print cartridge 2 - Black or Photo print cartridge
  5. Pull the print cartridge toward you and out of its slot.
Step three: Install the new print cartridge
  1. Remove the new print cartridge from its packaging and, being careful to touch only the black plastic, gently remove the plastic tape by using the pink pull tab. Figure 5: Remove the tape c00312625.gif 1 - Copper-colored contacts 2 - Plastic tape with pink pull tab (must be removed before installing) 3 - Ink nozzles under tape CAUTION: Do not touch the copper-colored contacts or ink nozzles. Touching these parts can result in clogs, ink failure, and bad electrical connections.c00312564.gif
  2. Slide the new print cartridge forward into the empty slot. Then gently push on the upper part of the print cartridge forward until it clicks into the socket.
    • If you are installing the tri-color print cartridge, slide it into the left slot.
    • If you are installing a black or photo print cartridge, slide it into the right slot.
    Figure 6: Print cartridge locations c00652788.gif 1 - Print cartridge slot for the tri-color print cartridge 2 - Print cartridge slot for the black and photo print cartridges
  3. Close the print cartridge access door. Figure 7: Closing the print cartridge door c00652789.gif
  4. If you installed a new print cartridge, the print cartridge alignment process starts after about 20 seconds.
  5. The unit aligns the print cartridges. Recycle or discard the print cartridge alignment sheet.
If you have completed all the steps listed above and are still experiencing a problem, service the product. Cause The product aligns the print cartridges every time at cartridge installation or replacement to ensure the highest-quality prints. The alignment page continues to print when the product is turned on or off, or when a print job is started, for any of the reasons below.
  • The automatic alignment process is not complete.
  • The ink cartridges are not properly installed.
  • One of the ink cartridges is defective.
  • One of the ink cartridges is low or out of ink. Black and all three colors must be available.
  • Protective tape on a new ink cartridge has not been removed.
  • Contacts on the ink cartridge are not meeting the contacts in the carriage correctly.
  • Cartridge is remanufactured or refilled. Refilled or remanufactured ink cartridges may have been damaged during the refilling process or have clogged ink nozzles.
  • The product needs to be serviced.

Printing


Dont know much about the software side but the only thing I can think of in the printer itself that could cause that problem is the colour running out of alignment (run color alignment procedure on printer below)

you can perform a calibration by pressing the button to rotate the carousel and the green button at the same time, do this process at least 3 times on a row
