I have an HP OfficeJet 6110 that tells me that I need to press enter to align the cartridges, but when I do so nothing happens. Any ideas what the problem could be or how to remedy it?

Make sure that you use a blank sheet of paper for printer cartridge alignment. I have seen people attempt to reuse old paper for this, and it can cause the printer to misalign the cartridges. Also, go into your printer’s menu, I don’t remember on that OfficeJet whether you press menu or setup on the front of the printer, but then go into tools or maintenance menu and perform a print cartridge cleaning. The retry the process and see if it works properly. If it doesn’t, there may be an actual problem with the printer.
