Alignment fails

If the alignment process fails, make sure you have loaded unused, plain white paper into the input

tray. The alignment fails when you have colored paper loaded in the input tray.

If the alignment process fails repeatedly, you may need to clean the printhead, or you might have

a defective sensor. To clean the printhead, see Clean the printhead on page 86.

If cleaning the printhead does not solve the problem, contact HP support. Go to www.hp.com/support.

This website provides information and utilities that can help you correct many common printer

problems. If prompted, select your country/region, and then click Contact HP for information on calling

Check the HP software installation

If the printer is turned off when printing, an alert message should appear on your computer

screen; otherwise, the HP software provided with the printer might not be installed correctly. To

resolve this, uninstall the HP software completely, and then reinstall the HP software. For more

information, see Uninstall and reinstall the HP software on page 88.

Check the cable connections

Make sure both ends of the USB cable or Ethernet cable are secure.

If the printer is connected to a network, check the following:

Check the Link light on the back of the printer.

Make sure you are not using a phone cord to connect the printer.

Check any personal firewall software installed on the computer

The personal software firewall is a security program that protects a computer from intrusion.

However, the firewall might block communication between the computer and the printer. If there

is a problem communicating with the printer, try temporarily disabling the firewall. If the problem

persists, the firewall is not the source of the communication problem. Re-enable the firewall.
