How can I get my HP PSC 2110 to finish aligning new ink cartridges?

My computer has Windows Vista.  I changed the ink cartridges in my HP PSC 2110 printer.  I pushed enter to align the cartridges, and I got a message "aligning please wait".  The trouble is, that message never goes away.  How do I get it to finish aligning the print cartridges so I can print?

Hello GregoryGodot,

 

Just power cycle the unit and see if it asks you to align the cartridges again when you power it on. If it does, try to remove the cartridges and clean the contact plates on the cartridges and in the carriage in the printer and then install the cartridges again as dirt or ink spill or similar could cause the alignment to fail.

 

If you can't get the cartridges aligned you could try to bypass the alignment like this: Press and hold Setup, press Options and then release both buttons.

 

This document contains some information and troubleshooting tips for alignment issues:

I tried pushing the Setup button and the screen says "Busy."  So I cannot bypass the align cartridges.

Hello Gregorygodot,

 

To bypass the alignment you need to press Setup and Options/Copy Options at the same time. It might take you a couple of attempts but you'll notice when it worked as you should notice that the display goes back to showing date/time.
