Aligning Cartridges

Just purchased the HP Photosmart 6510, trying to align the cartridges but it stop prior with this message "You may continue but Cartridges are not calibrated for best print quality.  Touch OK to continue."  All the photos that I print have lines ever few centimeters horizontally.  It provides me no options for troubleshooting, reviewed this website and downloaded the hardward wizard.  Nothing is working, very frustrating.  About ready to return it to Best Buy and purchase something different!

Re: Aligning Cartridges

You can run the alignment/calibration from the printer control panel like this:

 

  1. From the home screen, touch the Setup icon ( ), and then touch Tools .
  2. Touch the Down Arrow ( ), and then touch Align Printer . The alignment page prints.

Re: Aligning Cartridges

No - That did not resolve the issue, that is the process that generates the message I noted in my first request.  Can you please give me the next step.  Really would like to use this printer, it have been over a week now...
