I've just replaced the black cartridge in my HP PSC 2410 printer. It then asked me to click ok on the printer to print an alignment page. I did this but it's just churning out blank pages....no alignment details on them. I've also got the printer on/off light blinking constantly. Can anyone help please?
If I have a problem with cartridges not printing I Print a page of Text in bold type to perhaps force the ink through. Many years ago when I filled mine or others ink cartridges, on the basis that they may have dried up I would force print as above.
A couple of thoughts. Normally, when you install a new print cartridge, the printer will need to 'prime' it (I can't think what it's properly called) before it's ready for use. Did that happen? (The printer will make whirring noises for about 3 minutes). If it did happen, then you may still need to do some maintenance on the cartridge. It's a version of what compumac suggested, but slightly more elegant... :-) The printer will have a software routine you can access that cleans the cartridge. You should run this - more than once if necessary (although each successive time you run it, it will use more ink).
