Printhead alignment & color calibration

HP Recommended
Intel Core 13
Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit)

When I try to run either printhead aligning or color calibrating my HP Designjet 510 cancels it. I've cleaned printheads several times and have replaced service station thus far. 

 

Can anyone help?

May be the line sensor on the carriage is dirty or defective. I would try cleaning it as a first step.
