Perform an alignment

Open the HP Smart app, and then click the printer image. Click Print Quality Tools, and then select Align or Align Printheads. If prompted by the software or printer control panel to scan the Alignment Page, follow the instructions on the page to complete the alignment.

Your printer can become misaligned if there is any paper stuck in the machine, print cartridges are clogged or dirty, improper installation of cartridges and using low quality cartridges. Additionally, a printer can become misaligned after the machine completes a large print job.
Remove the sheets of paper from the printer so that the printer does not start printing the alignment pages. Disconnect the power cable from the printer while the printer is still ON. Disconnect any other cables if connected the printer. Press and hold the printer`s power button for 15 seconds.
Alignment errors are the count of the number of frames received that do not end with an even number of octets and have a bad Cyclic Redundancy Check (CRC). This could indicate a cable problem or a faulty transmitter on the network equipment connected at the other end.
For Windows

Right-click the printer icon on the taskbar, and then select the Print Head Alignment. Or access the printer software, click the Maintenance tab, and then click the Print Head Alignment button. The printer prints test patterns that you use to check the print head alignment. Here are sample printouts.

In the Devices and Printers window, select your printer and click on Printing Preferences. Click on Maintenance in the window that opens. Click on Print Head Alignment to launch the dialogue box. Follow the instructions to complete the alignment.
1. : the act of aligning or state of being aligned. especially : the proper positioning or state of adjustment of parts (as of a mechanical or electronic device) in relation to each other.
If your printouts become grainy or blurry, you notice misalignment of vertical lines, or you see dark or light horizontal bands, you may need to align the print head. You can align the print head automatically from the control panel or your computer, or align it manually from the control panel.
The print head alignment sheet will be printed and the print head position will be adjusted automatically. Do not perform any other operations until the printer completes the printing of the print head alignment sheet. This takes about 2 to 3 minutes.
Luckily, alignment issues are relatively easy to diagnose and inexpensive to repair if you don`t need to replace parts of your wheel assembly.
Make sure that each ink cartridge is firmly in place in its slot. Run your finger along the top of the ink cartridges to feel for any that are protruding, and if any are, press down firmly until each ink cartridge snaps into place. Close the ink cartridge access door. Try the print job again.
