HP Printer Alignment of Scan after new cartridge installed

kayaker24
My printer suddenly will not accept the paper copy alignment placed on the scanner glass.
If I turn the printer off, it asks me for the alignment each time and will not accept the copy as correct, so I am just leaving the printer on.
I would prefer to shut it off when not using it.
What do I do?

    Kayaker24,
    What is the model of the printer with which you are having a problem?
    HP has hundreds (maybe thousands) of different printers and the solution for each printer could be different. Let us know and maybe we can help.

    Many of the newer printer/scanner all in one units are filled with a multitude of sensors. The most obvious is when the printer powers on and you can hear it moving around. It is doing a reset routine to check the sensors and the motors that move the printheads. The same thing is happening in the scanner. The commonality of the two faults leads me to think the ink scupper(small rubber cup with a wiper that the printhead passes over) is filled with ink and has over flowed unto one or more sensors. Usually on the right side of the printer, under the printhead carriage. Have lots of alcohol (rubbing and drinking) handy, to clean a guey mess of ink and a shot of Hennesey to quell the frustration of getting ink everywhere.
