officeject 6500 cartridges won't align

Right out of the box this thing has not aligned the cartridges.  It has been through a dozen sheets of paper, fails each time, and will not print in color.


Any suggestions before I return it?

I suggest you follow the steps in THIS document. If it still does not align, then call HP so that they can replace the printhead for you.

Mine is brand new out of the box, and it never printed the first alignment sheet.  Let it run all night long doing the "alignment process" that may take 7 minutes, and it never printed a thing....


Did a system reset and got the same thing.
