HP Deskjet 3050 Alignment Issues after installing new ink cartridges

HP Recommended
HP Deskjet 3050
Microsoft Windows XP

I have a HP Deskjet 3050 and I've had it for several years.  I replaced the tri-color HP61 cartridge and now I cannot get it to align.  Therefore, I cannot copy or scan.  This is the first time this has happened.  I rechecked and followed all the protocols with no success. How can I fix the problem?

 

Thank you

I reviewed your post and I understand that you are getting alignment error after replacing the cartridge.

 

Don’t worry, I assure you I will try my best to get this sorted.

 

I recommend you follow the steps in the below article and check if it helps.

Thank you for responding. I have tried all those steps with no success.  I am not able to perform an alignment, therefore, I cannot copy or scan.  In order to print, I simply click the "do not align" when prompted, it will print.  However, if I click "scan" when prompted, it tells me the system is busy.  I have ran out of options except for taking it in to a service center.
