Step three: Align the printheads

Whenever you insert or replace a printhead, the printer automatically aligns the printheads to provide the best print quality. If the printer does not print the alignment page automatically, start the alignment process manually.
If you installed the HP software that came with the printer, you can use the instructions in the left column below. If you did not, you can use the instructions in the right column.
